Next Meeting:  Thursday, 4 December 2014 @ 7:00PM @ the Waltham Library


The address of the Waltham Library is 735 Main St, about 2 blocks west of Moody St.  Turning onto Spring St. (to the right of the building) leads to the parking in back. 
 If the lot is full, there is a garage reached by continuing down Spring and making a right on Middle St.
The speaker for the December meeting will be Dan Eyring who will be talking about home shop casting.  
Dan has sent me a list of references which, if you are at all interested in metal casting, you will want to review.  The list is HERE
