Pins & Tales

Winter 2017 issue

I hope you all had a nice holiday. 2017 was a good year for Sapfm and I hope that 2018 will be even better!

This latest issue of Pins & Tales has some great stuff in it. Jay Stallman’s article on making the glass doors on his Sheraton Secretary has some great techniques in it and Mike Mascelli’s All For Show highlights some interesting techniques in performing minimally intrusive upholstery treatments. Finally, we are treated to Dan Schwank’s final article in the 3-part series, Making a 3/16” Side Bead Plane. These are just a few of the highlights in this issue.

With 11 pages of Chapter News you should be able to find something happening near you. If there is no chapter near you then contact Scott Wetter and see how he was able to get the Gulf States Chapter off the ground.

Preliminary info on the 2018 Midyear conference is in this issue also. We are working to finalize all the details but make sure you put July 20 – 22, 2018 aside. The 2018 midyear at Old Sturbridge Village will be a good one!

I want to thank the P & T production team and especially Julian Peters- without his huge effort and creativity P & T would not be even close to what it is now.

Check it out. I hope you enjoy it.
