  • Bruce went to woodworking show

    he was there to set up Annapolis Woodworkers. The following were no shows, possibly because of weather: Sand flee, Bosch and porter cable. Sorry Rolf, he tried to get you a contact. Jim Heavy told him they are supposed to be be at a New York show in 2weeks. Woodpeckers was there and he did buy me a mini square. No scrollsaws. He said the vendors were even down from last year but Iโ€™m sure the weather had something to do with it. Have fun if you go!!!!

    I had to cancel, also. Not so much weather as family issues. Maybe the Chantilly, VA show in March.

      They are giving away a Jet scrollsaw, a powermatic bandsaw and a lathe tomorrow. Forget the name of the lathe but Bruce said it is top of the line, starts with an N or I, I think. You have to be there to win. He will be there to help teardown their display.Maybe it will be warmer in March Tony.

        Probably a Laguna lathe. They are popular right now and they are nice lathes. I have no place to put one. I'm looking very hard at the Supermax 16/32 sander, but I have to move my planer to the garage to accommodate it. I don't want to give up the planer, but I think I'd be using the sander more than I ever use the planer. I was hoping to see something at the show. There are other drum sanders available. Just have to see them to make an evaluation.

        I'm afraid the woodworking show is losing to the internet like other trade shows have gone. It's too bad, because there will be no place to get a hands on feel for new machines. Even Woodcraft keeps most of their lines in boxes. The only things to test are what they have set up in the shop.

          That show is a lot closer to me. I might just have to go.

            It would be good to meet you. Since I missed Baltimore, I'll probably do the Chantilly show. At least we wouldn't have to wear 5 layers of clothing to stay warm. They have some nice hotels in that area, also. I've had to stay there for business a few years back.

              It was a Nova lathe and 2 packages of tools and accessories worth $4000.

                The Nova if it is a DVR is an excellent lathe.
                Steve from Sand-flee did contact me a couple of weeks ago. And he graciously helped me with what I needed.

                  the guy that won it was at a show with us about 5 years ago and his house caught fire, losing everything. He replaced his tools with what he could afford, so this will help him greatly. Whatever kind of Nova it was, Bruce was impressed. One pack of turning tools and one of accessories, chucks, etc.

                    An awesome prize for a deserving guy. Nova DVR's are great lathes. I don't know how they compare to Laguna's in quality, but I love my Nova DVR XP.
