Our January 2007 meeting was one of our twice a year "poster sessions".  Instead of a speaker members are invited to bring in samples of their current projects or other item of interest to others for an extended version of show and tell.  

As always help with identification of folks in the photos is most welcome.  Please send a note to:

DSC00216A.JPG (22505 bytes)  21.  This way cool gadget joined the Frank Dorion collection of oddities.  Frank will have better luck sliding this into the house that he had with his last mill or lathe purchase.  It is a gage for counting teeth on small gears.  First one compares the gear in question to the gears mounted on the plate to find the pitch of the gear.  Then an adjustable arm is set to that number creating a wedge opening.  The gear is slid from right to left in the opening and he number of teeth are directly read on the plate.  Just the ticket if you have a box full of small gears and want to know how many teeth are on each one.
