Default Michigan Metalshapers Gathering 2017

Here's the dates for the 2017 Mich. Metalshapers Gathering. It will be held on April 28-29 2017. Notice that this is now a Friday /Saturday event. If you have an interest in metalshaping this is the event for you. Come and learn about various metalshaping methods and tools. Share information and experiences with other metalshapers and also do some hands on metalshaping.
The location will once again be at Precision Guesswork Race Cars in Hastings Mi. The address is 5625 Upton Rd 49058. Cost will be $40 per day. Lunch will be provided for a donation. Proceeds go to Racers for Christ. We will start each day at 9 AM and go till 6 PM. If you have a small project we will probably be able to help you. Due to shop space we will limit attendance to 20 people a day. Please RSVP by Apr15. Call Andy at 269-948-9474 with any questions or to reserve your spot.

Andy, I'll be attending both days and will gladly take some pics this time!

This will be my 4th year and always learn something new. Andy's meets are fantastic for novice and intermediate level shapers. His broad range of skills and innovative thinking is amazing.

Here's a pic of Andy demonstrating annealing.

Well we had another great meet. Lots of interaction and exchange of ideas and knowledge. Thanks to everyone who came out! We had more than a capacity crown both days. Thanks to Mike Motage for coming out and getting some pictures of the action. Thanks to Dagger tools for sending a great selection of tools for sale and some really nice door prizes. We had many new attendees this year and they all said that they really enjoyed the stuff that they where exposed to. Great food, great interaction, lots of great questions and hands on metalshaping. Again thanks to everyone for making this another great year.
