Old Business

Barb report on the Kid day that was held at her Barn with the $1000 grant Bob Rosand received. They had 5 participants of intermediate turning skills. Each participant not only received some excellent instruction form Bob and members of our clubs, they also received : a ¾ “ roughing gouge, a kit that included CA glue, hut finish, pen parts & blanks, center finder, & wood for the days turning. In addition, they got a years membership in the AAW, and their local club. As a bonus Ed Joells from Rocklers showed up and gave them 5 card for 15% off for pens parts and exotic wood blanks, and Jim Hilburger demoed tops; supplied blanks; and gave each a chatter tool.  Wow, when do we get a session like this? All in all the kids had a great day and learned a lot.

 

Lance Eggleston reported on the Craft/Art Show that is coming up on Nov. 10 at the Hamburg High School. He reported that if you are not interested in selling your wares, you could just exhibit them. He will keep the club posted as the time gets closer.

DEMO

 

 

ELMER’S CORNER: Tack Cloth Substitute

Here’s on I found in this month’s Woodworker’s Journal. If you run out of tack cloths in the middle of a project, take a disposable duster refill to use. These soft pads remove sanding dust just as effectively, they are much cheaper to buy, and leave no residue behind.
