PROGRAM –President Roy stated that the program for tonight was all about JIGS and  FIXTURES. We appreciate everyone that had fixtures or jigs to display and were able to describe their function. It is interesting to note that many projects require some sort of fixture or jig to enable what you are working on to be assembled correctly. Also as a side note it sometimes works out that the fixture is the item that should be put on display. We thank everyone who took the time to review their items so that others  might duplicate their efforts or see another way that they might approach their project. 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.

NEXT MEETING –APRIL 10, 2018 at 7:00 pm.

President Roy closed the meeting at 9:00 p.m..

Respectfully submitted,

Bill Akers  .
