March, 2009 Meeting
The March meeting was marked by the introduction of the new club lathe, a Jet 1642EVS. This new lathe should last
us quite a while, and with the mobility features that have been added, will make it easier to get the lathe in position
for demonstrations. Thanks to all the positive comments received regarding this purchase.
The growth of the club has been very positive. We seem to be adding new members at the rate of 1-2 per month, and
the participation at Mark Ost's on fourth Saturday's continues to grow.
A motion was made and seconded, but tabled to the April meeting that will be voted on at that time. Ballots will be
distributed at the meeting for a vote.
Kip Powers was our demonstrator for the March meeting. As usual, his demo was very informative and interesting.
Please be sure to thank Kip for the donation of the Nova lathe that has been used by many demonstrators over the
years. The lathe was sold to a new club member, and the proceeds contributed to the purchase of the new lathe.
The April meeting will be held on the 18th, and will feature Matt Keim, from St. Louis. This will be an extended
session for those willing to attend.
See you all at 4th Saturday!!

Our usual, attentive crowd!!
