NEMES May Meeting 2008
The meeting started off with some interesting show and tell items.
This robot was recently entered by George Gallant in the Trinity College (Hartford, Connecticut USA) Fire Fighting competition. http://www.trincoll.edu/events/robot/
Dan Yaeger, of the Charles River Museum of Industry introduced Ellen Hagney a new member of the staff. She will be running events which will attract the community to the museum.
Norm Jones shows off a mineral specimen from Florida which Harvey Noel was kind enough to transport back to MA for him. We often joke that Norm knows EVERYBODY. Well, during the recent visit of Pope Benedict the 16th to New York City Norm was able to meet the Pope and was invited up on to the dais with the pontif. A wave of whispering went through the crowd as one person asked another who that old guy was up there with Norm.
Dick Boucher passed around this jig which he had made to hold connecting rods in proper alignment for secondary machining.
Our speaker Dave Beard presented an interesting talk on ignition systems of early I.C. engines. He was kind enough to share his slide show (in pps format)with this web page.

Club secretary Todd Cahill snaps a photo of some of the items which Dave Beard had shown.
