December ?, Saturday @ Mentor Mark Larson's house

 

We will be visiting our Mentor Mark Larson's house to see firsthand how machining (cutting, bending, forming, etc. metal) is done. He has a workshop in his garage that we are able to use for creating our robot. This is not a manditory meeting and is only intented for those who have a high interest in the application of machining parts. Space is limited. Email Mr. Mahnke if you will be attending so we can arrange for transportation. Address is N5592 Piske Rd, Bangor, WI 54614
