DEMO

Dennis Forsythe representing STIHL Inc. gave the demo on chain saw safety. He gave us all some very good information on the use of chain saws in general, some tips on how to maintain your chain saw. Dennis also supplied a safety helmet for the club to raffle off. It was won by Jim Hilburger.

 

ELMER’S CORNER: Found in American Woodworker, April/May 2010

Mixing with Pasta Sauce Jar;

Most finishes need to be thinned if used in a HVLP spray gun. Previous to this discovery, measuring cups were used to do this. However, the submitter of this tip, noticed that the pasta sauce jars that were being thrown away had measurements on the sides of the jar, as well as an air tight cap. By darkening the measured marks on the jar, you now have a way to measure and keep any finish not use in a container that will keep it fresh until the next time you need it.

 

Respectfully submitted,
