Beth and I want to thank Jim and Barbara for their hospitality. We had a great time, from when we arrived until we left. Itís always good to see everyone, from the veterans to the new faces. Looking forward to doing it again next year.

Thank you, Jim and Barbara!

Welding up a universal tool holder for Dale Larueís Pullmax. Notice the machined windows in the welding fixture allow for clamping the shanks to ensure they stay in alignment.



And I would also echo Clintís comments. Thanks to Jim and Barbara for hosting this event, thanks to all who helped with cleanup, setup, event coordination, food preparation and serving, and Davidís pig roast is always on point. Thanks to all who gave presentations and also those that helped out the new folks to open their minds to metalshaping. Great seeing old friends and making new ones, itís what these events are all about!

Thanks Jim and Barbara. It has been stated here earlier that this was truly a world class event. It takes a community and a cast of many to successfully stage such an event!

Calling all metal shapers that attended the event, we have a missing tool !!!

Erie Eric brought Mike Stinson's Rivet gun to the event to flow form tractor grills and the rivet gun and plastic flow forming tooling has gone missing. Phone calls have been made to Jim to verify and it has not been found. Check your tool bags and let us know if you find any tooling that is not yours. Accidents happen, we want the guys to get their tooling back.

You can PM me, if you would like to stay anonymous. Please help Mike and Eric out. They use their tools to make a living and need them back asap.
