I was standing in line talking to an older (than me) gentleman and someone yelled my name. It was Chris. I guess he recoginized me from my picture. I didn’t have the chance to look at his picture before I left for the show.
Greg showed up about 5 minutes later.
Greg’s brother The Lazy Fireman from Tennessee, Adrian was not going to make it until Sat. and I didn’t plan to stay at the show until then.
Greg was looking to outfit his shop and didn’t want to spend more than $15,000. (He told his wife $500.00). But, we know what he means.
I took the Award Certificate that Martin designed and MsDebbie took to the Canadian Wood Show a few weeks ago. I asked for a copy to give to the Steel City people at this show.
Greg, Karson and Chris with the Steel City Certificate and a clone copy of the Original Bandsaw that Gary won in the contest.
The Certificate that was given to Steel City.
This is the first purchase by Greg. A Steel City Jointer.
My son came up to me later in the day saying that he saw a couple of the Mason Dixon Woodworkers at the show. We ran into them later. I also met one of the salesmen that I hadn’t seen in about 4 years. I was standing there in front of the General booth and the salesman stood in front of me holding out his hand. It was Joe who told us that this was his 25th year selling tools.
He offered to cut Greg a deal on a General tablesaw either the Canadian version or the American version.
But, I’ll let Greg tell you about that.
A great time was had by all. It was a smaller show that I’d seen in the past. (never been to this show before always NJ or PA) But, it seemed to have a lot of customers walking about.
I spent $30.00 on gas to get there, $2.50 on tolls, $7.00 for a show ticket, $24.00 on do dads, $30.00 on food and spending money for the kids. But, a great day with LumberJockers.
