Little more for the August 17th meet. Email from Chris Holt: "Folks!

Mark your calendars for next Saturday. August 17th, starting at 9:00 for James Michael Walker at John Steel's Shop, 2063 Lovi Road, Freedom, PA 15042.  Steel Welding is only 4 miles from the "epi-center" of Cranberry/ Turnpike!  Easy to find, lots of parking and even room to tailgate some of those items you cleaned out of your shop/garage this past weekend!  A great summer picnic is planned, PAABA Auction to support the day, PAABA Library and a PAABA Meeting to catch up on what has been happening all for $10.00!

Please bring something for the Auction to support the day! You surely will learn so much from James Michael.  If you are a tool maker, you will appreciate his ingenuity, if you are a creative blacksmith, you will appreciate his skills and techniques.  Definitely a summer event you need to see!


Chris Holt


If any of the group are going I'll be going so hope to see you.
