    Just a follow up and reminder on the Agenda that Jim posted.
    The camp “officially” starts on Thursday ( May 19 )

    The previous times were:
    9:00 – 10:30 Meet and Greet......

    The first session will last till lunch time
    After lunch there will be two or three sessions.
    Gary Campbell and I will be tackling the topic of the Rotary.

    We know many people have this option on their CNC machine but It’s the least used tool in the shop.
    We’ll show the ins and outs of the rotary and how you can design and make other item than just spiral columns.

    This has always been a requested topic, so we thought we would spend the better part of the day on it.

    The exact agenda and timing is still being finalized but I wanted to make sure people could arrange there travel schedules accordingly.

    Thursdays meeting has gone till 5:30 – 6:00 pm....so bring your questions.

    See you there,
    Michael
