Hey, everyone -- that was a great meeting to wrap up the season! Here are just a sampling of the photos I took at the Barbagello's shop on the 19th -- please check our flickr Meetings Album for more photos and for updated photos. I will be adding more pics as I get them processed. One thing I have to say is you are all so photogenic, it's easy taking good shots at our meetings!
Hello Woodworkers: I am considering getting a larger planer and thought I would check to see if anyone might be interested in buying my current machine.
It is a heavy duty Parks 12" x 4" stationary planer. I purchased it brand new in 1981.
Here are the specs:
- All cast iron construction
- 2hp, 220v, single phase motor
- 3.25" x 12" 3 knife head
- 12" wide x 4" thick max work piece
- 1/16" min. thickness
- 1/8" max cut
- 16' per minute feed rate
- 12,000 cuts per minute
- It is all set up & running and cuts great with very little end snipe.
- Optional helical carbide insert head is available from Byrd tool.
Price $ 1250
As a historical aside, the Parks Company was originally established as makers of tools and machines for wagon shops. Evolution took over and made them what they were today.
Let me know if you are interested or have any questions.
We will add photos of Chris Yavah's Parks Planer, soon. If you are interested in seeing the planer, call or email Chris (contact info above)
Our next Woodworkers Guild meeting will be held Monday May 19th. We will meet at John Barbagello's shop this time. This will probably be the last meeting before summer, although I have heard rumors we might have one more meeting in June (they're such fun, heh!)
Joshua, Jonathan and John Barbagello will be showing us mortise and tenon joinery. This will be the last meeting until September, so we need to talk about the Myrna show this fall and any other topics the members may wish to bring up.

Anyway, we hope you all can make it to this meeting -- don't be shy, even if you are not an official member, please come and meet a bunch of great folks.
Date: Monday, May 19th
Time: 5:30 pm til 8:30 or whenever
Place: Barbagello's shop at 840 Silverette Street on the west side of Helena
Agenda: After everyone has a chance to visit and chow down on the potluck dinner, our evening program will begin. Joshua, Jonathan and John Barbagello will be showing us mortise and tenon joinery. Again, this will probably be the last meeting until September, so we need to talk about the Myrna show this fall and any other topics the members may wish to bring up.
Please bring a side dish, appetizer or something to drink -- or, just show up. There is always plenty to eat! Our host will provide a main dish.
