If there's any interest I can bring one of my pressure tanks and some Alumilite so we can cast a blank or two. Maybe cast some of Loyd's exotic vine or some embedded objects.

It looks like Jun 7th is the most popular date? Does anyone have a reason why we can't lock down that date? The sooner we put it on Wood World's calendar the better.

Harry left it too wide open on the show us something. you don't need to show us, me specificly, how to screw up because I've got that down. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

I guess you and I can have a contest to see which one is better. I'm not sure if I would win the biggest mess or the most expensive. I hope it works out where you can stop by.

Let's discuss "Talking Points". Who wants to share an interesting technique or idea? Who wants to demonstrate? We'll have access to a lathe and other tools.

I have a few tips about casting but not enough to give a lecture. We can take turns talking about a particular subject or ask questions about whatever we like. I guess the contest is out for Bob and I?

Sounds like we will have a couple of snake charmers here from up north that could teach us a few things.

If anyone is having trouble with CA finishes, I will be happy to demonstrate that on the side, but I think most of the group probably has that down.

It's definitely an open forum so anything you or Seamus can share is much appreciated. I for one am interested to hear more about homemade bushings, finishing processes, segmenting and casting techniques.

My friend here in wichita Falls will be there also: David Broadwell. Sorry you will miss the meeting but have fun at the knife show and good luck if you are selling.
Do a good turn daily!

Hope you have a good meeting. I won't be there. I'll be at the Blade Show in Atlanta that weekend.

Yes, would like to meet David. Maybe see some of his custom work. We don't get to see you and Seamus very often, so please demo a skill that we could add. I enjoyed the closed end you did last time. That got me started.

David will be at the knife show in Atlanta. Sorry if you thought I meant he was coming to our meeting. What would you like to see? Something to do with slimline modifications? I was thinking of bringing my modified slimline collection to show what all can be done with that kit. Or, give me an idea. I'm sure we two snake charmers will discuss snake skin pens...at least I'm willing to share my technique.

Would love to see the slim collection in person - got the book :)

Show us a tricky mod or something with skins. We have several who are interested and it would make a good discussion. I would like to try some myself (Kenny traded me some snake I haven't used yet)

David Broadwell doesn't know it yet, but we will be having our own NT IAP meeting at table 20F (his table) on Fri. or Sat. I will be competing in the Blade Sports International world championship on Saturday. I'm hoping for a top ten finish. (shouldn't be too tough - I think only eight or nine of us have qualified.)
