Meet Marcel's Miniatures at Manchester Memorial

Mmmm: Memorial High School on Memorial Day Weekend!  With Marcel!

Internationally recognized wood turning super star Marcel Durette will be demonstrating miniature finials, knobs, openers, holdings and any way to keep a lidded something together at the upcoming Granite State Woodturners meeting on May 25th at Manchester Memorial High School.

Not just for barbecues, Memorial Day weekend will showcase the three new lathes and a SawStop table saw that the Guild of NH Woodworkers has donated to Manchester Memorial High School.  Wood Shop Instructor Dave Lambert welcomes all of us in to his newly renovated wood shop, complete with an exhibit of partially finished student projects.  Some terrific projects underway!

The meeting runs from 9 am to 12 noon, there will be coffee and donuts available.  Please consider bringing some hardwood to donate to the program as kids mostly work in pine.

From Rt 93, to Rt 293, take the South Willow street exit and head towards Manchester.  At the third light, turn right on Westin Rd, in between the Dunkin Donuts and Mobil Station. Stay right at the next light, then turn left on South Porter, the high school will be on your left. Proceed up the hill and turn left into the last parking lot. Walk back to the Dust collector and in the shop door.

Hope that all of you can get out of Honey-Do chores for the morning and come see the second demo on thin spindle turning.


Be Aware of Scammers
Answering These Ads!

Please be aware that there is a scammer answering these ads. Be careful!!!!

I recommend that you only take CASH or checks from people you know. Very little of the stuff that is advertised is so rare or such a great deal that someone would hire an “agent” to ship it.




If you are selling something online, as a business or through classifieds ads, you may be targeted by an overpayment scam.

The scammer will contact you, make you an offer—often quite generous—then make payment through credit card or cheque. They will be for an amount that is greater than the agreed price.

The scammer will contact you with an apology for the overpayment, offering a fake excuse. The scammer might tell you that the extra money was included to cover agent’s fees or extra shipping costs. Or they may just say they simply made a mistake when writing the cheque.

The scammer will then ask you to refund the excess amount or they will ask for you to forward the amount through to a third party. They will ask for this to through an online banking transfer, pre-loaded money card, or a wire transfer such as Western Union. You then discover that their cheque has bounced or the credit card had been a stolen or fake card.

A newer variation on this scam involves online sales, usually through classified sites, where the scammer pretends to have made a payment for a larger than agreed amount through services such as PayPal by sending a fake receipt of payment. The scammer will claim that the money is being held until you forward on the extra money.

If you send any money, you will not get it back. If you have already sent the ‘sold’ item you will lose this as well. At the very least, the scammer will have wasted your time and prevented you from accepting any legitimate offers on your sale.

I just wanted other Sellers to be careful as I see some valuable machines for sale here.
