Chesapeake Area Metalworking Society
Review of 23 November 99 Meeting
Mason District Governmental Center
6507 Columbia Pike
Falls Church, VA
Below is the group photo of most of the 30 people who made it to our November meeting. This was before eating the Thanksgiving turkey, imagine what they looked like afterwards!
This month we didn't attempt to have much of a business session, just an unsuccessful attempt to draft a volunteer to look after planning programs for the Virginia meetings.
The first program for the evening was a presentation on Loctite products. Scott Harry from Loctite was on hand with his complete road show.
Scott gave a very useful talk, complete with slides, about using Loctite
products and answered many questions from club members.
He also brought along lots of catalogs and literature, which were
voraciously consumed by all of us "high volume" Loctite users. :-)
The second program was a discussion of lathe tooling for the tailstock and turret tooling. Steve Stallings brought in examples of many type of tools and lead a discussion of them.
After the main programs, we had a good show and tell session.
Chris Helgesen showed us "triangle" accessories for measuring
thread diameters using standard micrometers.
Bill Rutiser talked to us about .... my memory is failing again... was it ball turning?
John McCalla brought in a kit for the "Tinker" tool grinder for show and tell.
And... the Therry brothers were on hand with an exceptional collection of goodies for sale or trade.
The meeting continued with general discussion until we had dwindled to a gang of five, who once again staged a raid on a local diner.
