Hi World -
Back in June of last year, I hosted a workshop day at my place. A few folks have asked about doing it again so I figured I start the process of seeing who might be interested and what we might do. Here's a link to last years event and activities.

http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?sho...=326533&hl=

Essentially, it's an opportunity to:
- just get together and hang out with like-minded folk
- get help with something you may be working on, such as bending a tube, making a bracket, welding something, or my favorite: having a part plasma cut (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)
- use a tool I have that you may not
- try some fabrication you've wanted to do
- share knowledge
- have fun

Tools that will be available:
- Hydraulic bender w/ various dies.
- Hydraulic press
- Tubing notcher
- Roll bender w/various dies
- Plasma table
- 48" sheet metal brake
- bead roller
- shrinker / stretcher
- English wheel
- fixturing table
- band saw (al and steel)
- cold saw
- TIG welder
- MIG welder
- Body working hammers/dollies
- brake/fuel line forming tools (bender, 45 and 37 degree flare making)
- misc. hand and air tools

Please feel free to come even if all you want to do is hang out! Heck, worst case, you watch me struggle with something on my car!

Anyway, post here what you have that you'd like to work on or if you plan to come.
If a PM is easier for you or you want to talk details, just let me know.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing, helping, watching, learning and just hanging out with you!
Chris
