PROGRAM –President Roy introduced Dave Dresnick who is owner of SUPERIOR GRINDING in Raytown. He walked us through a video of his shop and the equipment that is necessary to sharpen various pieces of woodworking equipment. He stated that their shop was not one filled with multi thousand dollar equipments but one with experienced operators (many of which have been with them for over ten years). It was interesting to note that they did many FOREST BLADES for cabinet shops and the cost was reasonable.  We thank everyone who had blades to be sharpened and passed results stated by our members is that you will be happy with the results. We thank DAVE for giving of his time and sharing his wealth of knowledge in the sharpening business. Don’t forget to help Vice President Greg Hull by keeping a lookout for anything that would be of interest to our members and thank him for his efforts to bring us a program each month.
