January 2018 Meeting

Twenty-seven members milled about, chatting and exchanging stories until president Paul called the meeting to order.

Business included:
– a discussion about having vendors present at our symposium this summer. A committee of four will report back on the various issues if this is to happen.
– Frank Denny will purchase a full range of Abranet sandpaper, cut it into 3 ft. lengths and make it available for members. The first 10 people to contact Frank at fdenny@shaw.ca will get in on the deal.

DEMO by Duncan Birch

With typical Duncan humor we were treated to a working demo of how to make and use a “Rose Motor” or perhaps a “Lilac Motor”. For those who do not know of the turning movement for making a “Rose Engine” click HERE for one example. This is a picture of a “Rose Engine” of the complicated kind.

This is a picture of Duncan’s “Rose Motor” at a fraction of the cost of the real deal “Rose Engine”

Duncan did a great job of making the jig and explaining how it works.  He brought along a recent flask with one of the decorated medallions incorporated into each side.
