I wouldn't have anything to put on the table as much as I like that idea.  But I will certainly show up.  Are you a member of the NWKC?  Been thinking real hard about joining.

I am a member and a board member as well.  It's an "organization" in the very loosest use of the word.  We do have a meeting every month, one in Kirkland and one in Tacoma, alternating.  We're trying to get a second show together, but piggybacking on the WAC works pretty well for now.  Stop by for sure, I'll be doing a forging demo, along with a couple of other folks.

What day and time is the forging demo?  

I think I will join then!  The restaurant in Tacoma is real close to me.

I will, the last one worked out pretty well, from the pictures you showed.  What do you consider "cheap"?

Cheap is relative to the potential I see in the piece and what cash I have available as a fixed income disabled vet....PM me if something comes up and i will see....thanks Geoff. I have been doing some work on the last one and will get some photos up when i am ready.

Yes it does, but in Steve's defense, he got a really nice Wak out of one a few years ago.
