Lapidary Workshop

January 26, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm CST

Our NMGMS lapidary room #136 at the Link Centre in Tupelo will be open on Sunday:  January 26, 2020 at 12p.m. for those members interested.  There are two large slab saws and a 10 inch saw available, as well as two trim saws and two 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.

You are also welcome to use some of our other tools in the class room if needed for other projects.

The cabochon machines are available for those members certified to use them.  Jim Roberts and/or Paul Gunther will be on hand to help with the saws and to get members certified to use the equipment.  The room is small, so workshop is limited to 6-8 members at any one time.

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.

Note:  the outside door stays locked on the weekends, so be sure to let Paul or Jim know if you plan to come.  

Paul: 662-808-7523C, Jim: 731-327-2085C.
