I'm a newbie and could really benefit from a "MetalMeet!" Are there any TX members that would be interested in putting one together? C'mon Y'all! :lol:

Hi Nick. I think it was last year, but there was a member from Houston that wanted to hold one, but don't remember what ever came of it. There is going to be one held in Oklahoma pretty quick, I don't know how far Edmond is from Austin but there are going to be a bunch of good people there. Buy a bag, build a baseball mallet hammer and a set of tucking tools and start banging away. If you don't have an E-wheel, a set of dollies,or a turned piece of solid round stock, and a slapping hammer will plannish out the "walnuts". Imperial Wheeling sells bags very reasonable, and Hoosier Pattern sells a tucking tool that you can fasten about anywhere if you didn't want to build a set. Check them out! Keep posting, reading and working, who knows, maybe one will be held closer to you. Or you can hold your own sometime.
Best wishes, Phil Gilmore (A rookie also!)
