Clancy is the shop dog.

only a week left! I can't wait. What is the plan? when should we arrive? and what should we bring? Safety glasses, gloves, hammers, anvil and steel?

Are we going to drink beer and watch a demo or do we get to work on knives?

I need to learn how to make a sheath.

Do I sound excited?

I'll bring salsa and chips

Safety is first at the HI. Bring safety equipment, glasses, and etc. Your favorite hammer too.;)A release form must be signed. Bring your favorite beer, we also have Buds on hand. On the starting time, people will be coming in on Friday and we usually start between 8:00 and 9:00am on Saturday. In the morning will be demo's. We will have Lollipop Sticks ( steel cable weld to rebar) to make cable Damascus. They will be numbered so first come first served to use the welding forge and press.
Boston Tandy Store Manager will be giving a demo on leather work.
Bring some show and tell, also any steel you would like to forge. Aldo Bruno will be here so steel will not be a issue. :D
Will have 4 gas forges available and a coal forge if anyone wants to fire it up.
I have some smoked salsa made up so we can have a taste off. HEHEHEHEHE!!!
Bubba's, if I forgot anything or any more ??? please advise.2thumbs

Hey Everyone,

I know it's last minute, and I'm sorry for that. If there is anyone crossing through Connecticut heading to Indian Georges Hammer-In that has it in their means to give me a ride, I would be eternally grateful. The cost of a bus twice in one month is beyond my means and my car is inoperable at this time. I can be in New Haven, which is minutes off of I-95 at whatever time you specify. Your schedule is my schedule.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Jeff

Great time yesterday, thanks Wa..Wa..Wally 2thumbs

Got to IG's around 8 am, fired up the 1st forge for the day for one of my little planned projects, then somebody asked me to do a little welding job (lolypop, crane cable to rebar), when I finished that and went back over to the forge area, other people had their iron in the fire :(. I fired up another forge and proceeded to make my first and only knife of the day.

Dan, sorry about not telling you about the unsafe fit of the knife in the temporary kydex sheath, hope bleeding stopped :eek:, by the way I wish I would have got some of your handle material before you left.

The New Jersey Steel Baron came through with the 01 that I needed, thanks Aldo.

It got real hecktic toward the evening but it seemed everything worked out alright (I hope) :(.

Thanks again IG, the food was great the company, as always, was fantastic.

Forgot to mention the raffle was excellent, especially that I won another bar of 1084. Thanks to all who donated time or material to make the raffle a success.
