Clearly a post about each meeting isn’t happening. You can find the current schedule on the Meetings page.
Our next meeting will be:

Rather than meeting the day after Labor Day, the Portland Machinist Guild will meet the second Tuesday this month -September 11th.
The meeting will be held at Bill Carter’s where Bill will be showing us his collection of about 100 engines; hit and miss, steam, hot air, air, water motors, and toy electric.

The Portland Machinist Guild 2012 Engine Run is coming up!
Harbor Freight/Alro Metals Plus
There is section of the parking lot to the right of Alro that is generally unused. The manager said we are welcome to have our event there. I will > have a poster in Harbor Freight and Alro to advertise the event so we are likely to have a bunch of folks walking up.
Note this is NOT Alro Steel. This is the little retail store next to Harbor Freight by the Lansing Mall.
Polish up your engines and we’ll see you there!
If you are not familiar with the Engine Run, for our last meeting of the season we get out our restored antique engines and give them a run. There may also be a few small engines built from scratch.
For our May 1st meeting, we will have a N.A.M.E.S. Slideshow and anything else you’d like to talk about.
Same time and place; 7:00-8:30 at Imagine This Church in Grand Ledge.
