Members,

Greetings!

Not a lot this month; 

In Regional news: George has been driving ahead on planning. Hotels have been identified, and you can see our registration form in the latest Mart.

A repeat from last month, which you'll probably see again: It's not too soon to be thinking about how you may want to participate in our July Regional. Aside from buying a table for those of you buying and selling, we can always use volunteers for our Chapter 31 booth. Bring along an interesting clock or tool; demo some aspect of clock repair/maintenance; or just be there in the booth to engage with the public and help us draw in potential new members.

I believe we will also have space for those wanting to give a 30 Minute University session; please consider this option. There are a lot of very knowledgeable folks in our group, with experience across a wide array of horological topics. Why not share that knowledge with others?

Around the shop: crossing out wheels on the rotary table. I mark them out with approximate layout lines, mount the wheel to the R/T, mill out the inner and outer arcs close to the lines, then movethe R/T off center to mill along the radials.Once I've milled one radial, I offset by 60.00 degrees to do the next. Then, back to center, and offset the same amount in the opposite direction to cut the other side of the crossing. I uses a 3/32" cutter ti give me a nice small radius. So far I haven't made any big mistakes...

Still looking for that coffee and treats volunteer...

Kudos to Kris Freimuth for a great write-up of recent chapter activities in the Mart. Thank you Kris!

Did you all see mention of our new member/Encore Fellows participant Christine Griffen in the Bulletin? Pg.176.

Contributing to TO...Speaking of Time Out content: if you get tired of reading (or skipping) my ruminations, why not send in something else? Perhaps a reference to an interesting article you read, or a link to something cool on-line, and of course if you wish to put pen to paper... great! Just a thought. Send me anything, anytime; I generally try to close out the TO a week before the next meeting.

At long last, our Banquet this Sunday 3/19 at the Monacrh. See you there!

Best regards, 


Jeff Eastwood
