" How much useful knowledge is lost by the scattered forms in which it is ushered to the world! How many solitary students spend half their lives in making discoveries which had been perfected a century before their time, for want of a condensed exhibition of what is known."

I'll be going down again this year. If anyone going needs a delivery I will pack it up and take it down with me. I just ask that you call the office at 973-949-4140.

 

Thanks,

Aldo

I'll see you there Aldo, and all the rest of you. I'll get there Wednesday, with John Emmerling from Oregon and Rome Hutchings from Minnesota. John was there with me last year and is the Ribbon Burner guy. I'll have my Ribbon Burner forge there.
