Maine Cub Club

Postby Kent F » Sat Nov 05, 2016 5:59 pm

Another successful and fun Maine Cub Club meeting today @ Our Pass Thyme, Exeter, Maine.
Tom explained the use of electrolysis for rust removal. Previously he used the process on several parts of a 154A blade!
Skid plates in the "bath" today. We discussed visiting a local farm, soil treatment, seeds, compression tests, welding and progress on our Cubs. Tom will be welding @ the next meeting on November 19. Come join us 1 to 3 @ Our Pass Thyme, 2515 Exeter Road, Exeter Maine.

Yes we had a great time once again. We hope to encourage some new members to join in the coming months, especially someone with some "real" welding skills. I have included some pictures of the simple electrolysis demo and have it going still at the time of the post. I will post a picture of the final result when the process is complete. See what you're missing???
