Magicbob has us set up for our next meeting:

ANYONE is welcome, and feel free to bring others.

Any volunteers for a demo??? Or any suggestions for what you would like to see.

I've gotten positive replies from 2 new Ohio members, so the chapter may be growing!!!

FYI: I do hope others will volunteer for demos; but Mike Broberg twisted my mandrel to see the Chevron Blank Construction process. So I'll do a demo at this meeting on how to make your own Chevron Blanks.

Teaser for those peeking: YES, these are actually EASY! Just a few steps and a bit of patience.

I'm planning on attending
Welcome Steve! There may be a shuttle leaving from Medina, so if you want to hop a ride, PM me.

This is a very relaxed group.

We'll set any group rides in a few weeks. All is well. Sounds like fun.

Cheers, Mark
Thanks Mark! I'm excited to be getting back into penturning. I'll PM you a couple of days prior to the meeting about catching the shuttle, thanks for the invitation.

Bob and Steve:

We can chat the week before to arrange rides and see who is attending. Glad for the interest!

oh, pencil me in. It's somewhat close to me, but if there's anybody in the Ashtabula area that want's to carpool.....
Get to Medina in the later AM, and we can shuttle! I'm only 1 mile from I-71, so it would be a good stop. Coffee, bagels, donuts, relax for the drive to Hartville. :rolleyes:

I'm closer to hartville than I am Medina :)
...Yea, I misread! Ashtabula looked like Sandusky (Other than all the letters :redface::redface::redface:).

Be well!

If anyone has done a kitless clicker using the Schmidt click mechanism and you still have it, could you bring it with you?

I just finished one and can't get the clicker smooth. I want to compare with yours!

Click measuring contest eh?
Had myself a front row seat to the contest, and I did learn a lot just from watching! Thanks guys.

Mark, Excellent Demo! Thank you. Think I might have to give one of those a try.

For those that didn't know, I was the guy in the green jacket and big red beard.

Thanks again!

Hi Thad: I know that folks didn't want to use the name stickers, but I (and others) would have loved to know the names of who was attending!

I for one saw you, but not knowing your name, I could not place you with our contact on the IAP forum. I would have loved to chat with folks who I have traded messages with.

Hmnnn... Me thunks next time we should simply "stiff-arm" everyone to have a name tag.

However - Glad you made it and I hope you play with whatever info you got. AND, next time I want to greet you in person! :smile:

Great meeting today. Thank you for the great tutorial Mark.

Mike, thanks for bringing the click pen too. Now I know that it isn't my nose cone or pen design. Still lots to work on, but I have a very good start.

I am so anxious for the MPG! I was also happy to win the T-Shirt!

Mark, thanks for the great demo. Hope you didn't mind all my questions.
Now I have a new way of making blanks that I will just have to try. So many things to do and so few hours.
I really enjoyed meeting everyone. I would have worn a name tag but I did not know where they were. I'll wear one for sure next time. They should be mandatory for the MPG, maybe they are. Thanks again all.

With just getting back into making pens it was great to make a couple of new friends yesterday with a shared interest and look forward to making even more friends as I attend more meetings. I'm looking forward to meeting even more people at MPG.

Thanks Mark & Bob for making me feel so welcome.

I think tags should be mandatory, but require First name and user name.

Oh, and another thing I wanted to add to the requested demos list, Metal Lathe usage. Kinda goes along with the kitless pens?
