Phil, I think that would be great. I don't see why you couldn't get power. I was thinking of bringing my pot instead of my titebonde
We've always had power for all our machinery back there. Additional power can be furnished by the HMC maintenance staff through drop cords from the ceiling they can hook up on Thursday before all the exhibits are setup.

For demonstrations this is what I have. If I have missed something let me know.

Phil S will be there Friday morning until lunch demonstrating Line and Berry inlay.

Friday and Saturday

Greywolf is bringing his bench and demonstrating hand tool use. This will include Hand Cut Joinery, dimensioning, assembly, fitting and molding fabrication.

Michael Mathews is teaching Pyography. This will include a small item you can make and take.

Berta is demonstrating cutting Vinyl records and CDs on the scroll Saw and bevel cut inlay on the scrollsaw.

We will also have people teaching turning skills. We will have a couple of NEW Projects as well as the light sabers! We also have birdhouses and peg games for people to make.

Re: 2018 Klingspor Exstravaganza

After standing up most of Saturday and loading everything in the car then unloading at three different places this morning I now realize I can’t possibly be on the concrete floor for 2-3 days of Extravaganza.

I’m very sorry and disappointed in myself but the fact is I need to be able to work and don’t believe I would be able after standing for so long.

Mike, I don't think anyone expects you to stay on your feet the whole time. If you choose to come out for the KE, we'll be happy to see you and I'm sure accommodate you with breaks or a seated task. If you just feel you'll be in the way, you'll be missed. Hope you feel better soon.

Do what you need to do. Your health is more important to us than anything. If you feel up to it come on! If not, put your feet up.
It’s cool.

Mike, I'm sure the group here would stand behind what ever you feel is right for you. Personally I feel if you came out that you should only stand when feel like it and take it easy on yourself. I also think we could use a few more volunteers to help man the stations, if even for a couple hours. This is really good event put on by one of our biggest sponsors. I think it's important to support this as well as the leadership of this community. I truly hope some folks can find it their hearts to come out and take part in this. It's fun, and you can help introduce someone to woodworking.

It would really help if a few more members would help for just a couple of hours.
As it stands right now we need more people to help with the lathes. Either that or we will just be doing demonstrations, no guest participation.

Help on the lathes is where I am worried. There is an extra helper for a few hours each day. I don’t want people to be stuck with teaching on the lathe hour after hour with no end in sight. I want everyone to enjoy the extravaganza. This is going to be fun, not work. We will be doing demos. We will be able to walk around and see the other booths. If we can get more help that would be great! Give it a try, this year will be a perfect year to try it out.
