October meet

Surprise demonstration today.

Oct 28, 2018

Paul Crosby surprised us today with a demo and his first attempt at Canister Damascus. He used a 1/2" hollow square stock with powdered steel and nail pieces for contrast. Forged out to a solid piece. Only issue was that there were not enough nail pieces for a good contrast.

Jim Moran simultaneously with Paul's demo also demonstrated making a ball at the end of a square stock.

Good turnout in spite of the fact we had no official demonstration scheduled. Next month we also have no one scheduled, so we will wing it once again!
