I'm planning to go, probably on the 7th - not sure what to expect. I have a few LN planes (large and small chisel planes, #62 LA Jack, #60 1/2 adj mouth block plane, and the bronze edge plane) - not sure I'm in the market for anything (maybe a DT saw?), but it might be good to get hands-on pointers on using/sharpening their planes.

I went to one of these events in NYC.  It was actually pretty underwhelming, though Thomas the company founder was there.  The small demo table was too crowded to test anything comfortably.  It was more just a chance to see all their tools laid out in a row -- but since I'd been to the showroom already in Maine, this was not a novelty for me.

I have gone to a couple of them and I think they are pretty good. Actually, I have been to three of them now that I think about it. It is a good way to handle the tools. Of course, I too went to the HQ and nothing compares to that experience. I might need to check it out tomorrow when I am back in CA.

Well, I went to it - it would have been nice to know where to park and which building it was in - but I found it. Good crowd, several demos going on, some hands-on stuff happening. I didn't actually order anything - just looked and played a bit, and listened and learned a few things. AND I got a little LN balsa wood glider ("for the kids" - hehe).
I had been thinking about a dovetail saw - but I ended up ordering one from Rob Cosman directly, along with the Kerf X-10 that helps with blind dovetails. Rob called me personally to make sure I understood how they worked together, to tell me about his project to help wounded vets, and to invite me to one of his workshops. I gotta say, I am more impressed than ever with him and what he's doing. He made my day, and I am very excited to get his saw in my hands... AND I got an airplane! It was a good day.
