Hi Bruno,
Sounds GREAT! I'll book a room for you :)

I looked a Google Maps and saw you're not far away from Zürich. I made a search on: Zürich-Karup. It is possible to travel to Karup via Copenhagen from Zürich. Karup (KRP in "airline terminologi" is only 35 km (21 miles) from Viborg. That's the way I would do it :cool: ;)

Looking forward to meeting you!! :)

Hi All :)
When we are gathering for the 2011 Viking Meet, this local US car club http://www.alleycats.dk/ is hosting a "small" event in town... "Cats Cruise'n Meet" There'll be around 700 US cars at the meeting and... Peder, one of my new friends in Aarhus is going to bring us a '30 Model A Pickup cab to work on :) :) As a recognition of the job some of us are going to do for him, he is going to sponsor some 19ga CR and some 16ga 3003 equivalent :) Thanks Peder!!!

Here's a pic of the cab:

More pics in my Viking Meet 2011 Album
http://www.metalmeet.com/forum/album.php?albumid=309

Further more he said that he will sponsor supper for all of us Saturday :eek: :) His wife Pernille told him that the weekend we are having the Viking Meet, "the cats" are hosting the cruise. This event only takes place every other year and they really wante to attend Saturday night... "Never mind!" Peder said... "we'll just go eating with the cats. Then we also have the opportunity of listening to a band named "Booze Brothers!"

on edit: One thing I forgot to mention: Finn (owner of the '40 Ford Deluxe Convertible, Tore and I are working on) is going to bring it up for all attendants to see, what we've done with it :) :) Thanks Finn!!!

Looks like we're going to have a party guys :D :D :D :D

Never mind about the Mech Hammer.

As I said before, I have the dies. Now I just need Peder to finish the housing and go look or a tube /pipe for the back bone... if I'm lucky Peder has some of that too ;)

2 ewheel adjusters to build...one for me and KFS.

Have to finish my Lazze clone beadroller also... you'll all have to live with it if I'm nothing going to be able to paint all of my machines John Deere yellow before the meeting :rolleyes: :D :D

Hey my friend:)
Thanks but no thanks. Either the machines have been painted before the meeting or they will be AFTER the meeting. During the meeting they are meant to be USED for METAL SHAPING!!! :D :D

Hi friends,

got some good news: It finally looks like I will be able to come over, too! :D:D

Anders, as thursday is a holiday around here I could come early (thursday / friday / whenever you want) and give you hand setting everything up. The same goes for cleaning after the meet - might head north from your place again... :-)

Would you reserve a room for me?

Jaakko

Fantastic Jaakko will be great to see you again. I'm still waiting for my daughter to give me my final plans:rolleyes: As it stands I will be flying into Oslo and bumming a ride from Karl down to Viborg.

I'm hoping to spend a day or so in Norway since it will be my first time to that country. If nothing else I can sweep floors for Karl in his shop to off set coffee costs.

Frank and Martine have been kind enough to let me hitch a ride back to Holland with them and see to it that I get exported ( or should that be deported ) back to the US from Amsterdam.

I would like to ask the organizaton of the event if its possible to join you guys in viborg. I just join in the metalmeet so i dont know if the event is for close friends only or if there are doors open for new members to come by.

thanks in advance

Be advised that you can not bring your 40ft container on that ride.
Please let me know your"deportation" date so I can personally see to it that you get to the gate.:D

Thanks Frank! BTW your idea for bringing the 3/4 stock was a perfect solution to that weight problem! So that said I will at least be lighter when you see me deported!:p

Darn-it! Just reading through the thread makes me jealous of all you guys making plans to attend the Viking Meet. Those of you who are first time visitors (participants) are in for a great time meeting great people and learning (sharing) ideas and skills. The 'old-timers' ... you are especially fortunate to see all your metalshaping friends once again. I wish I could join you but unfortunately the economy hasn't been kind to me this year.

I will therefore, vicariously relive my experience of meeting and enjoying each of you a few years ago as I read and view the photos and comments you will be sharing with us during the days you are together.

I wish you all a pleasant and safe time together!

Dick Bear

Thank you very much my friend! :) Wish you could be here!!

You can always go "bragging" about attending the first Viking Meet ever... in fact Dick, you are the reason this event even began taking place. I remember you telling me that if I was ever going to host a regional meeting, you'd promise to show up :) I thought: Well... 3 or 4 guys showing up, we could have the meeting in my 2-car garage :cool: 10 minutes after me saying I'd host the meeting, 9 guys had signed in :eek: :eek: :eek: :)

Since then, back in 2007 I met a lot of NICE friends :) Thanks for making this happen!!! :grin: :grin:

Hotrod1932
05-24-2011, 09:48 PM
Well Dick be of good heart! Anders orders are "Vikings make sure Vikings have helmets!" After all you are the only other American to attend one but you have to ware it!:D

Still time to think about a short flight to Fla. Great rates on flights to Amsterdam from there, and I bet there are folks that would help ya find your way back home from there! Hotrod's Rule # 547: Life ain't kind period, but better to be in the game than on the sidelines. Cause ya never know how long the game will last!

Keep watching the mail ya never know what just might show up! ;)

Well Vikings at least for today I'm stuck in Albuquerque. I could not get on a flight to Huston. Bags with bar stock, tools, etc did get put on the flight even though they shouldn't have been.

Hoping that from Huston they get sent on to New Jersey. Guess tomorrow I will try again to get me to New Jersey one way or the other and catch up with them and try to make Oslo on the 21st. If I can't get out to Oslo tomorrow then I'm stuck there are no seats for the rest of the week it seems.

Can't believe this is happening again that I might not make the Viking. Anders if thats the case I'll do what I can to get those other helmets to you before the meet is over.

Well gang I am stuck! Frank missing getting on today has killed this. Even if I can get out tomorrow I will get stuck in Houston. If I try to make New Jersey I can't get there in time to make the Oslo flight. Flights to Oslo are full for the rest of the week it looks like.

Would try for Amsterdam, but not time enough for Nicole to get new Passes for me. Have no idea where the bags have gone, it the are in Houston, or if they went on to New Jersey.

Anders I did hang on the the other Helmets and I will get them sent to you and hope they make it time for the meet. Karl let me know what I owe you for the Ferry Pass and I'll send it to you along with your skateboard wheels.

Gang I have no idea right now about how I will try to get you the 3/4 bar stock.

Ben and Anders my friends.

Boy didn't I think about what options I might come up with, and thank you for thinking about me. The problem that happens is that Nicole would have to get new passes from the pass burreu for a change of destinations and that takes 3 - 4 working days to get the pass. By the time I would get them and get to Europe, I would have to turn around in 5 days or less and get back to work.

Guess I will have to watch another Viking from the sidelines.

Hi all!
The car is loaded to the limit ( it´s a small one) with my handtools, it´s nearly no space left for extra underpants.........but who cares, tools are alot more important :p:p:p;)

I bring some (a few) selected handtools to sell out if any find some of interest :)

So tomorrow morning I start the trip to DK, it´s about 650 km + 2-3 hours on the ferry :rolleyes: I look forward to meet all new faces there, it will be really cool!!

Hello All,

Nice to see that everybody is planning the trip to Denmark.

I am to planning my trip.
I was going to leave on friday, together with Jag2Be, who is leaving 1 day later than he planned, for me.
This morning I was asked to join a meeting with clients on tuesday, and was told that I should consider my position as a freelance programmer in the company when I said that I was in Denmark.....

So I am, again, saying to all of you that I won't be attending the meeting this year.
But for sure next year I will be there.

I am meeting Jag2Be this afternoon for the stickers I have had made and he will give them to Anders, who will give them (or sell them) to you all.

With regards,

It's sad to see that several familiar faces cannot come.
But I look forward to seeing you, Ray, Martine and the other "traditionals" that could not come next time around. Or maybe at KFS' place in Tønsberg?

And Martine, take care of yourself and get well soon!

That said, of course we look forward to seeing several new family members at this meeting!

Regards
Einar

Oh no! This is so sad news!! This year's Viking Meet was supposed to be the best ever and then several old friends aren't able to make it :( :( :(

Time for some good news in this thread!

Opposite earlier years, the students are OUT OF THE SHOP TOMORROW morning at 9:30 a.m. This means we can start early friday morning :) ;)

Brian, I understand! You had no choice! We all have to make a living ;)

Martine, get well soon!!

Ray, so sorry you couldn't make it! I know you've been looking forwar to the meeting for a long time.

Hi Frank,

I will most likely not knock on your door before tomorrow afternoon...

...maintaining old traditions I managed to get stuck on my way to the meet - one injection line broke and sprayed diesel all over the place...:o

After checking every scrap yard in this area I bit the bullet and ordered a new line from the local vw dealer but this isn't supposed to arrive before tomorrow morning.

So, have a nice evening - I'll go and get some brake cleaner :-)

Anders, sorry I can't help you setting things up...:-(

Glad to hear you all got home safe :) :) :)

Thanks for the nice words, had a blast myself :) Thanks to YOU (participants) this was another nice event!

Took Bruno to the airport this morning. Then I went back to Mercantec and was allowed to keep the keys so I can build acarriage for the Trumpf, to make it easier to move outside the shop... moving it on a pallet jack is SCARY!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Then I went home to take a power nap before picking up my Bamm Bamm and Mech Hammer. That little "15 minutes nap" lasted 3 and a half hours :D :D :D Tore called me (woke me up) :p to tell me he had picked up the aluminum rims for a Ferrari Dino we had got blasted. Tore is going to a hot rod show in Belgium tomorrow so I had to do the 185 km round trip to pick them up today :rolleyes:

I can tell you all one thing! "I AIN'T DONE SLEEPING YET!!" :mrgreen:

Look at this beautiful very special CNC engraved Viking Meet 2011 edition Mech Hammer housing Peder made for me. THANK YOU Dantoft!! :) :) :) :) I'll try to make up for it ;)

Anders,

Where in Belgium is that hotrod show?



Hi Guys,

Glad to hear you all got home safe :) :) :)

Thanks for the nice words, had a blast myself :) Thanks to YOU (participants) this was another nice event!

Took Bruno to the airport this morning. Then I went back to Mercantec and was allowed to keep the keys so I can build acarriage for the Trumpf, to make it easier to move outside the shop... moving it on a pallet jack is SCARY!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Then I went home to take a power nap before picking up my Bamm Bamm and Mech Hammer. That little "15 minutes nap" lasted 3 and a half hours :D :D :D Tore called me (woke me up) :p to tell me he had picked up the aluminum rims for a Ferrari Dino we had got blasted. Tore is going to a hot rod show in Belgium tomorrow so I had to do the 185 km round trip to pick them up today :rolleyes:

I can tell you all one thing! "I AIN'T DONE SLEEPING YET!!" :mrgreen:

Look at this beautiful very special CNC engraved Viking Meet 2011 edition Mech Hammer housing Peder made for me. THANK YOU Dantoft!! :) :) :) :) I'll try to make up for it ;)

I have a question about the profile gage that Jakko is holding, does anyone know where to get them now? I know someone on metalmeet made them a while back and then they were copied by harbor freight, but the link I had got lost in the crash and HF doesn't sell them anymore...do I just have to make my own?

Cheers,

Daniel,

The profile gage was "invented" by Ben ad Emile. That's where I got it :) :) :) (Viking Meet 2007 I think)

Peder can make them and Bengt-Olof has made a CAD file.

We need to get Ben's approval before we even THINK of producing them!!! And I haven't even asked him yet :p

I seem to remember that Ben an Emile told me that they milled the plastic manually and they were a bear to make. Peder has 5-axis CNC :cool: ;)

Throwing up an idea here:

Maybe Peder can produce 2 wheels, one male and one female with the pattern as a continous punch. Then a machine similar to a bead roller have to be made, just with much larger wheels. Producing the plastic strip would then be just a matter of cranking a suitable sheet of plastic through the machine.

Another set of wheels could make the link parts, although this may pose a problem since they are not continous strips and a pushout device for the female die would be needed. For a strip part a "finger" would do that job.

If the wheels were machined and sent to Ben, I'm sure he would make the machine in no time.

Hi all, today I had some time over to end up my project from 2011 Viking meet ;-)

http://www.metalmeet.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=375&pictureid=4907

Here you can see a real Viking in the vikinghelmet ;-)

http://www.metalmeet.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=375&pictureid=4906

The helmet is made of aluminium 1,5 mm thick and totaly handformed.
The lower edge is a wire edge.
All pieces are riveted together and the horns is made of 2 pieces each and then welded together...
Thanks Ben for one horn and Einar for an half , the last piece I made and then matched up to Einars.....and they fit great together :cool: :D

All the best !
