Sept 2014 Mtg TUES Sept 9!!
The September meeting of TEW will take place on TUESDAY, Sept. 9th (please note the change of day just for the month of September). The meeting will start at 6:00 PM at the Nancy Rodriguez Community Center.
This month’s presentation will cover sharpening. Several members will demonstrate their preferential method of sharpening and explain why they chose that method. To show a wide range of options, we will have available a belt sander sharpening system inspired by an AAW American Woodturner article, our club’s medium-speed grinder, a slow-speed Tormek sharpening system, CBN wheels, and mineral crystal abrasive wheels. If you have any tool that you are having difficulty achieving a sharp edge on, bring it with you and we will assist you in achieving an optimum degree of sharpness.
Per the chapter By Laws, we will be putting together a nominating committee to help select next years officers. Please be prepared to assist in the nominating process and make your desires known to the committee as to which position you would like to hold. The club is dependent on the members to run and organize our club activities and we need people to step up and accept these duties. I can assure you that any efforts you put forth will be rewarding and educational.
There is still time to sign up for the NM State Fair either as a demonstrator or exhibitor. Contact Bill Mantelli of the NMWT at 298 2603 for more information.
The Club has been officially recognized by the IRS as a non profit organization. This will open many opportunities to the club not the least of which is acceptance of charitable donations. Please keep this in mind in your year end financial planning actions. This will be discussed more at the meting.
Don’t forget to bring your latest and greatest for the Instant Gallery.
Keep on Turning,
