A pocket full of cash and a valid credit card were a definite asset for the meeting. Twenty-eight members attended a meeting packed with sharing of information, story telling, camaraderie, and the opportunity to purchase wood, tools and lathe accessories.
Allen Walker is downsizing his wood stash and brought a truckload of exotic and local woods for people to drool over and purchase.
Ken Rude is the Canadian distributor for Vicmarc Lathes and accessories. His company Branches to Bowls also carries turning tools, dust collectors and other lathe accessories. Check out his website. (Click on Image below)
We are grateful to Ken for including a visit to Hub City Turners on his return to Calgary from a tool show in Hamilton Ontario. He unloaded a full range of Carter and Sons turning tools and handles, chucks, jaws and a dust collector from his vehicle. People had the opportunity to see and handle the items and make a purchase if they wanted.
Thanks Ken for coming.
Jim Beebe updated everyone on upcoming program items. Be sure to let Jim know if you want to enter an item in the Gallery on the Green show.
The December meeting will feature Gary Vonkuster interviewing Mel Genge. For Show and Tell members are encouraged to bring some kind of ornament related to the Christmas season.
SHOW AND TELL is always a highlight to see what members are creating. A photo essay of show and tell follows.
The meeting ended with drawing for the door prizes.
