Lapidary Workshop

February 15, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm CST

Our NMGMS lapidary room #136 at the Link Center in Tupelo will be open on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at 9a.m. for those members interested.

Note:  the outside door stays locked on the weekends.  Be sure to let Paul or Jim know if you are coming, so they can meet you at the door. Text or call, Paul: 662-808-7523C, Jim: 731-327-2085C

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.  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 club has lots of other equipment besides the slab saws and cab machines, so if you would like to do something with beading or working with wire, please come.  Bring your own project to work on, or just come and learn a new skill.  If there is something that you are specifically interested in, let Paul, Jim, or Nancy know ahead of time, and we’ll try to accommodate you, if we can.

Lapidary fee: $1 per cut with the 12 or 10 inch saws, $2 an hour on the cab machine and trim saw, and donations for consumables.  Bring a brown bag lunch.  Junior members must be accompanied by a parent.
