« Part 35: Torque about Tight... Part 36 of Going to local shows. series Part 37: Back from Sydney »

Yup… just got the confirmation from Aaron at Torque Workcentres… they would like me to go to Sydney Timber and Working with Wood Show to help with the demonstrations..

Last year, I clocked up a lot of frequent flyer miles doing the show circuit with the TWC…Maleny, Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, Launceston with two trips to Melbourne the year before.. getting quite good at assembling the machines and putting together a stand at these shows.. But this will be the first time doing the Sydney show.

It should be a real blast… Flying in on the Thursday to set up for the three day show… June 17/18/19 and fly back out Sunday night…
And heaps of new tools, timber and lots of demonstrations by some of the best in the industry…not that I will have that much time to actually look at the show… should be too busy…but any luck I will finally get to meet Sam Shakouri...

Sam is one of the best woodturners I have never met…I am looking forward to meeting you, Sam…so don’t forget to come to the show…

The show will be held at the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park, Sydney on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday opening each day at 10.00 AM and running until 5.00 PM. You will have no excuse for not finding time to drop in and say Hi….and ask any questions you may have about how the Torque Workcentre will change the way you look at woodworking…and you will be able to see just how substantial the Torque is and also get to see it in action…

At this stage I will also be winging down to Adelaide in July but more of that later… still working out all the details about which team will attend which show…

Stay safe.

Sounds like it will be the kind of work that’s fun. It’s always good to make money while having fun and you seem to do both very well. Sydney is about 900 to 1000 miles from your home?

It’s a nice way to travel and do what you like to do: woodworking.

Good luck with the show Larry. I hope a lot of TWC’s are sold and I hope you will post some pics of the show too.

I will be there so long as Torque Workcentres pays for my airflight from New Jersey U. S. A. to Sidney, Australia. Otherwise, I think I have a pretty good excuse for not stopping by. Only kidding you. Good luck with the show.
