Rex Jackson will be speaking at our next regular meeting this Thurday, Feb.12 at 12 noon. His topic is  Mill Wheel Design - Past and Present.
 
Rex works for the Center for Electromechanics at UT where he is a mechanical designer and does technical support. http://www.utexas.edu/research/cem/ 
 
Restoration of the Mill Wheel is our next big project. It was first built by Rufus Harrell in 1966 out of redwood. By 1986 it was falling apart, and was redesigned and built by Arnold Callaway.

We do not have an open house this month. If you are interested in membership or would like to attend this meeting or a future meeting as a guest please reply to AMGC@Volente.org

Electronic copies of Rex's talk are available on request.
