It’s only been a year, But I don’t remember IWF being this BIG I’m glad that I weared tennis shoes. I live less than 80 miles away from ATL so I left at about 5:00 am and ended up at the Georgia World Congress Center just before the doors opened at 8:00 am. Parking was a nightmare especially sence I drive a large pickup. I spent my day in building A which is mostly hardware and supplies. The good people at the Blum booth helped me order a brand new Minipress M and I am thrilled and so excited to receive it. I have a bag full of catalogs and samples to go through. Every booth that I stopped at to look at something someone was handing me stuff, and I don’t even know what I have. Tomorrow is building B which has all of the “big boy toys” in it so it will be even more fun than today. I have been taking photos of everything ’’not really shure if I’m suppost to, but nobody has stopped me yet” anyway I will post some of them when I get back. I will also post some more of my thoughts tommarow. Please excuse the spelling cause I’m about to fall over.

So what kind of deal did they give you on your Minipress at the show? Had a chance to get a deal on a two year old Minipress P a few weeks ago but waited too long and it was sold.

Gary I got the Minipress for $1899.00, most of them retail for around $2200.00 $300.00 off so it was worth my drive down.
Wayne I’ll post some pictures on saturday, I would recomend going, I’ve had a blast the past two days.

Aaron – glad you were able to score on the Minipress. It’s great when you are able to get that kind of money off on a new machine.

-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.
