The flooding was west of Nashville. Nothing serious at Jim's (or me). Spoke to Jim earlier this evening about some carpentry he needs done before the event.

Default Any camping close by?

Is there a campground within 10 miles? Debating on if I want to drive back and forth to Harvest, get a room or pitch a tent.

GREAT event. Weather has been perfect but hot. Air Conditioning in all of the shop makes it nice.

Steve Hamilton organized seminars. Dan Pate cooked great breakfasts and lunch. Jim's friends have kept us well fed in the evenings.

Long days as usual. Some guys staying until the wee hours...like 4am. Not me.

Mike Stinson brought his double headed power hammer and last night he and Mike Philips did a very well received power hammer seminar.

Stan Fulton demoed pullmax tools.

If anyone was bored, it was because the weren't trying. There was always something going on.

Pat Brubaker debuted the new Imperial Power Multipurpose machine. Sickness right there! I got to finally lay hands on my first 26F since Pat purchased Imperial. He has made some very significant improvements! Respect!

Good batch of door prizes today and more for tomorrow as well as a couple raffles from Mike at Ace Chassis and Pat from Imperial. ALL proceeds go to Jim.

A few photos. I'll try to remember to take more tomorrow.

Some of the goodies Dan Shady brought. He had all kinds of tools I needed. Now taking collections for fuel money home.

Power hammer demo by Mike Phillips on the machine built by Mike Stinson. It’s a three station beast with power hammer, shrink, and planishing hammer stations. A work of art and quite functional.

It was great to see everyone again, and every year seems to get better. Thanks again to Jim for his generousity, opening his shop, and putting up with all the chaos.

Was definitely a good event. I met some great people and learned some new skills. Looking forward to the next one.


Special shout out to David and Tim for the AWESOME food throughout the event. Those guys really knocked it out of the park.



Tim, i hope you get to feeling better and recover from Covid soon.
