Our meeting was at Timber Woodworking Machinery in Mesa. Mel (owner) graciously donated gift certificates which were given to our two new members who joined during our meeting. Mel also announced the return of his Woodworking Expo for November 4th.

Our guest instructor was Rich Best who gave a very interesting demonstration on two of Incra's jigs, the table saw jig and the router jig.

Rich's presentation was fabulous. Everything and anything you wanted to know about the Incra Jig was covered and members had lots of questions.

Repeatability is the most import feature of these jigs.
