Anyone going to Names next week?

Count me in. I'll be flying to Detroit Metro and doing the rent-car thing to Toledo. I'll be staying at the Sea Gate Inn at the Convention Center.

Just wondering.

You bet! Will be staying at the Park Inn attached to the convention center.
Leaving on Wednesday and heading up to Frakenmuth MI so the wife can visit Bronners christmas World and we will have lunch at Zenders. GREAT fired chicken.
See you there! Look for me with the New England Model Engineering Society mob.

Hey Wes,
Yep. Be sure to look me up. I'm mostly on the rear loading dock.
Take care.

I know I promised that I was coming but it looks like I need to continue to run production on weekends. We're still so busy with those flat wire brushes that I'm building ANOTHER machine. This one should only take half the time, I'm shooting for three months...sure could use a machinist!

Maybe Names would be a place to troll for one?

Brian, I enjoyed our visit last year, sorry I can't make it this. I've got too much to do before we go visit my sister and bil in Aberdeen, Scotland at the end of the month. It's our last chance since he's gotten the old golden handshake and will be retiring at end of July. Then they're back to Texas, at least initially.
I hope they've got you a comfy perch back on the dock. Enjoy the show.

Yeah, Tawm. Walk around there with one of those lovely A-frame signs on and lure a real, honest-to-goodness machinist home!

Drag a piece of Aluminum on a meat-hook down the isles?

There are islands at NAMES?!? Oh, you meant "aisles", didn't you? But a set of R-8 collets or a good micrometer might be a better trolling item.
Good luck, should you decide to accept this mission.

Maybe wear a sandwich board with a picture of your pristine Bridgeport and a caption, "This bridgeport needs a part time machinist to keep it company".

"picture of your pristine Bridgeport"

You apparently have not been in Tom's shop. The words pracitcal, ingenious, clever all come to mind. Pristine would NOT come to mind!

No, Tawm said that. And the spelling of that word should have been "coarse", Swiney.

And why do you think I spelled it that way ? It was a play on words and spelling. "Course" as in a pathway - "coarse" as in the grating manner of some of limited sense of humor and even less of lexicon.
