I personally haven’t turned on my lathe in almost 3 years. But I’m happy to get together again, just for fun.

Anyone want to host a gathering?

Thump, thump. Thump, thump. Thump, thump. Thump, thump. (pulsing here.)

I will host if anyone is interested in coming into the Santa Cruz mountains. Driving on these roads scares people away. When are we thinking? Hosting will give me an excuse to clean up in there.

I haven't turned anything on my lathe since yesterday.

Get together

I would like to get together and I am willing to travel. For me it would have to be in a few weeks. I have had unexpected spinal surgery and I am recovering each day, but still do not have permission to bend, twist, drive, etc, but go to the MD in two weeks and will get further instruction.
I would be willing to host it even though my space is small. It means crossing a bridge to get here.
Let's see where this goes.

It will be a couple of weeks for me, too. I’m out of town until the 24th.

I know M/M Brooks are also out of town a lot.

Hi folks, I just saw this thread. It's been probably 5 years since my first (and only) attendance at Greg's house where I showed a lathe turned box threader . That was a very fun meeting and I wished I could have attended more. Shortly after that meeting I decided to retire early, leave silicon valley and move to Palm Springs. After almost 3 years I finally have the new house finally done and am just now starting to turn again. Man did I miss turning and having a shop. I hope you are all doing well and ready to have some fun!

Larry........thank you for giving me that pine cone blank at the meeting, I had it 85% done and then blew it up. It would have been cool had it turned out!

I am good for October, and am good at which-ever location is voted on.

Even Larry's. I'll drive my Audi. That should scare the roads...………. or at least everyone else who is on the road.

I’ll know my work travel schedule a few weeks before the meeting. If I am in town I’ll plan on attending and can bring pulled pork, ribs or a brisket if you want more meat. Hope everyone is doing well.

While it’s not exactly pen turning, any thoughts of sharing ideas and samples of turned Christmas ornaments? I have been saving the bottom 12-18” of our Christmas tree for the last 7 years since our oldest son was born. Last year I made a few ornaments from the wood for the grandparents and they went over really well. I would like to see what other people have done and get some new ideas. Thanks

Chicken:

I have made and have a collection of Christmas ornaments for display along with some Bird house ornaments for you to check out. So hope other members might bring some also.

Cheers

I may (or may not) be on a work trip that weekend.... just waiting on parts to show... I will certainly come if I'm in town. I hadn't turned much the last 4-5 months, but was making a cradle for my grand daughter.... then redoing the kitchen cabinets... so it's not like I wasn't out in the shop! Finally turned 3 pens last week... was good to get back to the lathe...

I am available for the 20th. I can bring whatever. Let me know where there is a gap.

I may bring a few of the birdhouse ornaments I have been making for the boutique. They are nothin fancy, but they sell for $22.

I'm also trying to work out some ornaments made out of the miniature bowling pins seen at Michaels, etc. They will likely be in the $6 range, since Linda bought three bags of them at a thrift shop for $3. I may bring some of the work-in-progress.


Let me know what's needed for food.

The Santa Cruz Woodturners Association president will not be at our next meeting. So as VP, I have to run the meeting which happens on the same day. Unfortunately I will not make this one again. I was really looking forward to it too. Let's not wait to long for the next one. I miss seeing everyone at these get togethers.

Meetup on October 20

I will try to make it this time. I haven't turned regularly in a couple of years and could use some encouragement/advice to get back going.


Also I have "issues" with my Jet 1014 tailstock. ( lost a set screw but it was behaving hinky before that):angry:


I'm hoping someone can take a look at it and tell me it's a simple fix.

Sorry the 20th is overbooked for me with a show in Walnut Creek all day. Have a fun day in Livermore. Perhaps the group can discuss a future date for another meeting after the holidays. Best wishes to you all! Bill

Bill:

I think that having a get together in the spring would be great, I will find out from those who show up what the thinking is.

Unfortunately I am not going to be able to make it. I was in half moon bay on Friday of last week and was helping the wife lift a pumpkin at an odd angle and heard a loud pop in my arm followed by some seriously bad pain. I got into a Orthopedic surgeon yesterday and he did an x-ray and did not see anything but from where I have pain and how my bicep has moved towards my elbow he thinks I tore one of the two tendons that attach my bicep to my shoulder. I have an MRI early next week to confirm and if its the case I have to have surgery in the next week or so to repair the tear and fix any rotator cuff damage that happened as well. :( So this is my last weekend with a half functioning arm until January most likely so I need to get a few things done around the house before I am in a sling and cannot use the arm until 2019. It sucks getting old. Have a great time and hopefully I can make the next meeting.

Sorry I completely missed this meeting. I just haven’t been connected to IAP much and it flew under my radar. I need to figure out notifications on my phone when something is posted to this group. Greg has a post about this and I’m going there to read it through.... again. : )
