Lapidary Workshop

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm CDT

Our NMGMS lapidary room #136 at the Link Centre in Tupelo will be open on Saturday May 11, 2019 at 10 a.m. , if there are any members interested.  This would be a good time for the Rockheads to go over shop safety and earn the lapidary badge, if they have not yet done so.

There are two large slab saws and a 10 inch saw available, as well as two trim saws and three cab machines. Bring some stones that you would like to slab. We have a box of slabs that you can “play” with, if you
don’t have any of your own. The cabochon machines are available for those members certified to use them. Beginners are welcome! Jim Roberts and/or Paul Gunther will be on hand to help with the saws and to get members certified to use the equipment.

Lapidary fee: $1 per cut with the 12 or 10 inch saws, $2 an hour on the cab machine and trim saw.
Bring a brown bag lunch. Please email therockhoundlady@yahoo.com, or latergator2003@yahoo.com, if you plan to attend. Junior members must be accompanied by a parent.
