  • Klingspor Extravaganza

    The annual Klingspor Extravaganza is another victim of COVID. This would have been their 20th year doing that and I have been doing demos in more than half through my club NC Woodworkers. But they are not throwing in the towel. They are going to try and do a virtual show. Here is the link:

    For the record I have no connections to Klingspor outside of doing demos at some of their events.

    Virtual demos just aren't the same. I love doing demos in person and being able to interact with people and answer their questions on the spot. It's sad and I truly miss it. The Covid virus has infected businesses as much as people. Hunting for a new planer as well as trying to get some maintenance parts for other equipment is coming up with "out of stock" and "backorder" issues blamed on Covid killing inventories. Several places have told me woodworking equipment and supplies have been selling out far faster then they can get them in ever since Covid started because people were staying home. In the long run though, maybe this will be a shot in the arm to get more people back into woodworking. That would be cool! Thank you for sharing your link.

      Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
      Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

      I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

      I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

      The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

      Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:
