June 2017 Meeting – Restoring Old Power Tools

June’s presenter will be Phil Kezele.

Have you ever been offered somebody’s old woodworking machine from an estate of a friend or loved one or just saw something on Craigslist that reminded you of your high school shop class? Are you on a budget and can’t afford to buy the latest and greatest shop equipment? If that’s you, you may be interested in old woodworking machines or ‘old arn’ as I prefer to call them. Learn a little bit of what some might call a voyage of discovery by using old woodworking machines in your woodworking. What you won’t get is factory support, dust collection, riving knife or flesh sensing technology but you will get is history, style, design, cast iron—and lots of it. Come join me for a night when we will look at machines of old still used today.
