  1. It the same weekend in September evey year. Last year there was talk on a few new people taking the Raines running the conference. An event that big is a big responsibility we think he meant reigns No, I think he meant "reins".
  2. Welcome Tennessee has a conference coming up shortly I think
  3. Any Damascus with good contrast or mokume Gane which is basically nonferous Damascus
  4. A while back on Facebook someone was using hot glue and a bowling ball. Haven't tried it not sure how well it cleans off. Different amounts of heat would change how it moves
  5. I see conference has workshops any idea how to sign up for them
  6. A piece of 1/2 round stock bent into a u sticking up in a secure vise. Feed the stock pull to bend keep feeding and bending. Draw the curve you want bend to the drawing. 5/16 should be able to be bent cold. If you are doing many same size build bending jigs.
  7. I am winter apache junction Arizona resident. Do you have a shop set up
  8. Back to his original question other years opening ceremony was evening of first day listed for conference which is wensday I believe then demos Thursday Friday and part Saturday with evening meal and then the auction. This time the website lists demonstrator and workshops which I understand to mean hands on workshops. There probably is some night forging. Again this is my opinion only and may not resemble what will happen either way I plan to be there from Minnesota.
  9. Railroad anchor is a piece of spring steel hammered onto the bottom of the rails. It is to keep the rail from sliding as it hits the railroad tie.
