I'll PM you my contact info, my flight doesn't get in until late I'm going to miss the Hikvision party sadly. But I will be on the floor pretty much all Thursday. Hope you like beer.

Re: Meeting Fellow Members

I'm headed down from Michigan through Ohio towards an eventual destination of West Virginia next month. Who's along my way that wants to crush a couple beers the first weekend in May?

Re: Meeting Fellow Members

So, the plan is to take some longer bike trips this summer. Looking at California and Nevada. I am in the habit of going places for a purpose, so if someone is along the way, I have a reason to stop and say hi (or whatever).

Hopefully in the next year or so, my wife and I plan on getting a trike and traveling longer distances. I will keep everyone informed.

Re: Meeting Fellow Members

rblakes stopped by the shop today.

Little did he know.......

He and Zach worked together. I did this for a selfish reason, as Zach went over our processes with Rich, Zach learns more. I learned that Zach did not know what something he uses every day was really for. I learned them both what its true purpose is.

The morning for them involved, sanding, running lock miters, sheet goods break down/sizing, assembly, shop music discussion.

Stopped for lunch on the way to the Parade home, discovered I am still not a stop for lunch type of guy.

I noticed when I was at the Parade home on Sunday the seam had opened evenly the entire 9' of the ping pong table. Solution was to separate the leafs, cut 14mm Domino mortices, insert Domino connectors and rejoin the top (how I wanted to originally join the seam, did not have the connectors at the time). Best part of the process, all I had to do is vacuum up what little dust there was.

Hopefully Rich got something out of the day.

Re: Meeting Fellow Members

Well, I definitely got a full belly from lunch lol

I really enjoyed stopping by the shop to see and partake in how you operate. The lock miters are a cool idea, something I might keep in mind to play around with in the future.

Thank you both for taking the time to show me around.
