Hogtown Meet 2020

OCTOBER 17-18, 2020

The Hogtown Metalshaping Meet will be held at my work place on the third weekend of October this year.
No experience necessary and is encouraged.



I will bring all my shaping equipment from home but we could always use more shaping stuff such as e-wheels, mallets, bags, stumps, etc.

I have manual shrinkers and stretchers and we have enough TIG welders so we're OK there.

BBQ lunch will be served both days.
Doors open at 8:00 AM and run until everyone's burned out.

The meet will be held in the Markham Road/Finch Avenue area in Scarborough. (Toronto)

We have plenty of space for your projects, doors, hoods, fenders etc, so bring them along.

Sorry, but masks will be mandatory. If you are not comfortable with this, you should not make plans to attend.

We reserve the right to cancel this meet if Covid flares up in Ontario. Cancellation notice will be posted 48 hours before the event if req'd.


If you wish to attend please reply to this thread so I have an idea of how many are coming.




2721 Markham Rd. #25
Scarborough, ON M1X 1L5

Thanks,
________

We are now at full capacity of 10 persons at an indoor event.
If anyone else would like to attend, I'm sure someone will cancel, so please reply anyways.

For anyone that can't make it, please reply at least a week before if possible.

My pc is giving me a hard time so I don't know how much longer I can check the site. And the Covid19 numbers are rising. I will try to stay informed but it isn't looking good at this point with a little over a week to go. Good luck everyone.

We're still going forward.
We have sanitizers, masks, etc. All machines and tools will be sanitized.
I'm very confident at this point. Let me know if you change your mind.

Well anyone who didn't go today missed a great opportunity to do fun stuff and meet nice people. I cannot go tomorrow so if anyone wants to take my place, let 123pugsy know. A fun day of learning how to shape metal. Well worth the time. Thank you again Jari ! It is so kind of you to do what you do.

Great to see you again Jim. Good luck moving forward on your project.
Sorry I couldn't spend more time, but I was running around like a whack job trying
to keep up with requests for help.

No problem Jari. I learned when time permitted. Even if I screw up at home, that's ok. I'll get better with my next build maybe. I think I'll weld this all together now and see just what comes out of it. Even with mistakes, I still learn. Just have to practice my welding skills now. I like pulse welding and I am getting to know the settings on my machine so I don't blow through. Thanks again Jari.

That was awesome of you to hold this event during these trying times. Didn't want to stay over in Toronto and too far for a one day round trip....hope things are better next year.

Hey Paul. Hope you're keeping well.

Ya, it's a little scary getting in close contact with anyone any more.
Hope you can make it down if this crap ever goes away.
