Tune Up Info

  • January 9th at Robert Cook’s house at 3344 Surry Place. 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Pizza will be available at around noon.
  • January 17th (Sunday) at Robert Cook’s house at 3344 Surry Place. 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
    • Bring any weights that you have. I have a very limited supply this time, and especially after last week’s workshop, even less. If you need to still rough cut your derby car blocks, there is still time to do that. I will have the bandsaws and other tools available just like last time.
  • We will have two bandsaws to do some major cutting on your derby cars (scouts and adults). We will also have a rotory tool, sand paper, chisels, and other tools available. There will be a couple of derby kits available in case there are boo boos.

Our Pinewood Derby is on Friday evening, January 29th. More details about the event will follow.
