ANNOUNCEMENTS

EAIA Partners with Amazon.com for Book Sales

The popular EAIA Booklist may have ceased publication, but thanks to a partnership program with Amazon.com, EAIA will soon be publishing a virtual Booklist. Through this arrangement with Amazon, every time someone visits the EAIA Web page (eaiainfo.org), clicks on "Book Sales," follows the links, and then purchases a book from Amazon, a portion of the purchase will be returned to EAIA.

At this time, there will only be a link to Amazon, but the plan is to eventually publish short reviews of books and to maintain a list of important titles related to tools. Don't forget, that through a special arrangement EAIA members receive a 10 percent discount on Astragal Press publications. There is a direct link from the Web page to the Astragal site with all the information necessary to take advantage of the discount.

Remember, the next time you plan to make a purchase on Amazon, whether a book, video, DVD or electrical appliance, go first to www.eaiainfo.org, and click on "Book Sales" to find the link to Amazon.

Tom Elliott Elected to EAIA Board

Thomas Elliott, a founding member of ATTIC (Antique Tools and Trades in Connecticut, 1971) and a member of the EAIA since 1991 was elected to the EAIA Board of Directors. He joins Laurent Adamowicz, David Englund, and Judy McMillen, who were reelected to the board following this spring's elections. Tom is the editor of The Guide to the Makers of American Wooden Planes (4th edition), and the author of A Guide to the Makers of American Wooden Planes. A practicing architect, Tom lives on a working 1735 Connecticut farmstead, which he has restored.

EAIA Library Books Still Available

There are still many excellent opportunities for improving your reference library with good, useful, well-respected books available at very moderate prices from the EAIA Library. Subjects cover a wide range of American decorative and mechanical arts, industrial history, electricity and lighting, steam power, antique collecting, inventors, and manufacturers. An Excel file of the remaining titles is available from Elton Hall at eaia@comcast.net.

2006 EAIA-Eastfield Summer Workshops

The EAIA-Eastfield Summer Workshops will be held July 17-21 at Eastfield Village, East Nassau, NY. This outstanding program of instruction in a variety of traditional craft trades set in a recreation of an early 19th century village provides an exceptional opportunity to get together with some kindred spirits, learn a lot, and have a great time. Overall participation is limited to 16 because the kind of hands-on, participatory instruction we provide, as well as the maximum size of the piece of meat we can cook at the open fire, requires a relatively small group. For a complete program, see the March/April Shavings. For a registration form or answers to questions contact Elton Hall at eaia@comcast.net or (508) 993-9578.

Join the 2006 EAIA Tool Tour to Cornwall and Devon

Next September 18-29, the EAIA Tool Tour will explore Cornwall and Devon in southwest England. It is an area rich in industrial history, particularly mining and quarrying. There is also a great maritime history with many charming old fishing villages along the Cornish coast. Our fellow members Hal Logan and Jane Rees have been researching opportunities to purchase tools along the way and have contributed a good deal of advance information. Covering a relatively small area will allow a lot of time for seeing and seeking without long coach rides. As has been the custom, there will be an optional extension to the David Stanley tool auction at the end. For a complete itinerary and application, contact Discover Europe, Ltd., P.O. Box 435, Dublin, NH 03444, (866) 563-7077, or discovereurope@earthlink.net.
