What a pain the new listings of organizations is, I'm on the road again for a spell and the extra effort to see what might be new on NEBs.  Judson are they mailing anything I'm without a printer out here.

We sure did have a debate about postage costs and registration costs last meet, eh?  Felt like I was part of the D.C. swamp just being in the room :)

Hey Dale, you didn’t win an N.E.B casting this year.  The stars must be out of alignment.  I won nothing as usual.  The spring I got two years ago was an aberration....

It was a fun time.  Mark was a great presenter and it sure was packed in there.  His kind words about our membership and his help with the 2020 ABANA meet were a nice touch.

Was a great event.. Sadly won't be here today..  Busy 2 days with tons of questions and forging great stuff.. Mark Aspery was a great demonstrator offering excellent professor level information for all involved from beginner to pro.  

Great meet.. Can't wait for the next 1.. 

here is a picture of the Steeled hardie (1018 mild with 5160 steel cutting face, started as 1"sq)..  Started at the spring meet on 3 different anvils and completed yesterday on yet another..  I'll refine it a little more and take out the shank blem from the different anvils..

Stars were not completely lines up BUT Dale Martin won it so almost got it right, plus I've got everything already.  Mark did do a fine job and he certainly tuned me up to attend the ABANA 2020 meet if possible.  It was a great time the Morrell's do an outstanding job never miss one there.  Have a good winter see you  on the cape in the spring.
