Shop Tour for Fall of 2016

October 8, 2016

Bill Kennedy will show how to set up a surface grinder table to be able to get a precision grind on your material.

Jerry McClure will be doing a gold or silver clad to bolsters and butt cap on a knife.

For another demo, we will be available for suggestions at the shop tour. Mike has a billet of damascus made up, a forge, and other equipment as needed. I will bring my forging tools and material if any one has a request for something special.

We are having this one catered and will have Barbeque with fixings. As usual, the shop tour has no fees and is supported only by the raffle of items donated for the “Iron in the Hat”. Selling tickets for the iron in the hat has been enough to pay for the expense of putting the shop tour on. Most items are materials for makers and several finished knives have been donated. All the tickets will be put into the hat for the grand prize at the end of the drawings.

Brion Tomberlin forged a small hunter from 1084 flat bar at the Branson show and hammer-in this past week end. It ended up in my trailer and I brought it back. I plan on completing it with some stag scales for the grand prize of the Iron in the Hat.

Tail gate sales are encouraged and it would be great for you to bring a guest. I do need to know about how many will be there and would appreciate a reply so I could get a count.
