Frank Dorion showed of this gorgeous plough plane that he made.
Alan Bugbee (right in second photo) brought in two canes he recently made for a neighbor lady
A complete set of Brown and Sharpe micrometers. They might be for sale but my common sense overrode the need for a set of pre 1910 set of mikes.
Wayne Singer and Dick Boucher
Someone brought in a number of puzzles which had these guys totally focused

15 December 2009 OK. After much delay here is the rest of the story. When I got home from the Oshkosh trip I thought that the poster idea would be a great thing to do to, ahhhh that is to say for, Norm. I trotted over to the local custom photo shop and had a poster made off the video memory card. I called the restaurant in OSH and asked if Lindsay would sign the poster for me if I sent it out there. They said sure and off the poster went. It didn't arrive back in time for the September meeting so the thing had to be rold over until October. Of course Norm wanted to know what happened to the photo of ME and I had to say that the memory card with the photos on it was lost. I don't think he completely believed me but was too polite to call me on it.
Yesterday my wife was looking for something in the basket where I throw my keys and found the card so here is the photo of myself and Lindsay. Also in the photo is my friend Tom Horch of Marysville OH.
And that is the rest of the story!

Rollie's sister, sorry that I can't remember her name but it was very pretty. I am sure that Rollie will let me know what it is.
Rollie's latest project is this brass locomotive. He does beautiful work on all things.
