Dick Sargent Will Be The Demonstrator For The Meet
Dick’s demo will be a mixture of detailing and tooling used for the finer points of railing , gate and grill work. Subjects will include, scroll endings and jigs, blind rivets and tooling, along with mortise and tenon tooling and a unique and efficient way of making angled tenons to name a few.
Dick plans that all of this will be interspersed with much discussion and questions from participants which will expand this demo’s range.
