KCKA Shop Tour April 4, 2015


Well-Known Member
Fairly new to the forum here and just stumbled upon the KCKA sub forum. As a member of KCKA I figured I'd post an update of the upcoming event.

Cut and pasted directly from the website http://www.kansasknives.org/

Our next Shop Tour will be at Doug Stice's shop, in Wichita, KS. The date is April 4th, 2015.

We'll start with the demos around 10am.

Demos will be:
Rolling blade edges on the belt grinder.
Setting pins in bolsters.

We're going to try something different for the Shop Tours. We are going to devote a portion of the day to helping
attendees of the shop tour with their knifemaking projects. There is always a number of shop tour attendees who
come to the event to get advice on something they are working on. Rather than fill the day with demonstrations so
that there is little time to help these folks, we will do the demonstrations in the morning, then use the afternoon to
help with projects. We’ll see how it goes and if everyone likes it. If it goes well, we'll continue to do this at shop
tours. If it sucks, we won't do it again.

Bring your knifemaking projects and questions!!!

Please bring items for the Iron in the Hat raffle!

The shop address is:
4113 W. 18th St. N.
Wichita, KS 67212
