SANTA BARBARA CHAPTER
November Meeting: (2nd Monday)
Date: Monday, November 11, 2013
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: 430 Rose Ave.,
Santa Barbara, CA
Our October meeting was canceled due to the lack of members able to attend.
Five of us met on September 9th in Dennis Ashly's van and Isaac Sadigursky's shop. We held our business meeting in the van on the way to and from Isaac's. We discussed how much to contribute for the ad the Southern California chapters are putting on KCET.
Isaac gave us an information-filled presentation on how he organizes his shop and the many tools and parts he uses. He showed us his many types of screw-holding screwdrivers; a lever used to lift grand pianos off the ground so that special wheels can be set under the casters to make moving easy and prevent scratching the floor; a part that can be used to repair the backs of spinet keys that have broken; parts to repair music desks; and many others. Isaac also gave a demonstration on how to repair piano benches. We adjourned at 9:15.
The Santa Barbara Chapter will hold their November meeting at Jim Connolly's "Piano Kitchen." He is planning to talk about keeping your interest in your work fresh and growing.
