Rob, I don’t blame you for being excited. This is a wonderful opportunity for you. I hope you are able to get some pictures and share them with the rest of the group.

I had the opportunity to talk to Ron a couple of years ago when I called about some questions with regards replacement irons for some of my planes. I found it surprising that he personally answered the phone and found him to be very helpful with my questions. I know I certainly would enjoy meeting him face to face.

Hope you’ve enjoyed! I went to the Thursday night event for SCWA members (and if you’re in the area and aren’t an SCWA member you’re missing out).

Good reason to be excited. I’ve never met Ron Hock, but have spoken to him on the phone when ordering items. I met David Marks last year in June at the American Association of Woodturners Convention in Hartford. I was doing a volunteer stint in the gallery and he had just sold a remarkable piece and was hanging out in the gallery. We had a great chat for quite a while and then I had the pleasure of attending one of his workshops. As you’d expect he was very knowledgeable, but very down to earth and willing to share his knowledge.
Have fun,

-- Glen

Ron did a presentation on tempering and sharpening at the last SCWA meeting (I bought his book from him, and meant to get a honing rod at the event on Thursday, guess I’ll have to order it), and David’s a fixture at meetings. I feel guilty every time I miss a meeting, because there’s always an amazing amount of knowledge flying around.
