ANNOUNCEMENTS

EAlA-EASTFlELD SUMMER 2006 WORKSHOPS

The 7th annual EAIA-Eastfield Summer Workshops will take place at Eastfield Village, East Nassau, NY, from July 17-22, 2006. The week will again include five day-long workshops in various traditional trades with participants choosing between two each day, lunch in the village every day, and two tavern dinners. We will have some of the old favorites and some new ones. Last year the program attracted nearly a full enrollment. The fact that many of the participants return year after year is as good an endorsement as any for the quality of the program. The full schedule will appear in the March Shavings. In the meantime, inquiries may be addressed to Elton Hall, at or (508) 993-9578.

E-MAIL CHANGES

Two members report their e-mail addresses have changed: Bill Curtis's new e-mail address is . Paul Van Pernis can now be reached through his new e-mail address at .

DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENTS

The EAIA membership Directory is a good place to make your goods or your wants known. Advertising rates are quite modest, and income from the ads makes a significant contribution to the cost of publishing the Directory. The reservation form and rate sheet may be obtained either electronically or on paper from Elton Hall, or (508) 993-9578. Deadline for advertising copy and payment is April 1, 2006.

PLEASE RENEW PUNCTUALLY

Prompt renewal of your membership is a great help to the Association. It helps us with planning, earns a little more interest, and saves on the cost of reminders. If you have not yet renewed, please do so today! Thank you very much.

ASTRAGAL PRESS MAKES SPECIAL OFFER TO EAIA MEMBERS

Astragal Press welcomes members of the Early American Industries Association as direct customers of Astragal Press entitled to a 10% discount on all books published by Astragal Press. EAIA has negotiated this discount on behalf of its members to replace EAIA's discontinued Book Sales Program. Astragal Press has an online catalog that you can see at www.astragalpress.com or you may order a catalog from the Press toll free at (866) 543-3045 or P. O. Box 239, Mendham, NJ 07945.

The Astragal Press has had a long relationship with the EAIA. Its founders, Emil and Martyl Pollak, joined the EAIA in 1979. Already active as collectors and scholars, they became active in the EAIA, with Emil serving on the Board. He also served on various committees and chaired the Long Range Planning Committee. The Pollaks' book, A Guide to the Makers of American Wooden Planes, now in its 4th edition, has added a whole new dimension to the pleasures of tool collecting. As the Astragal Press began reprinting important books on various aspects of the mechanical arts, Emil chose a number of books from the EAIA library for reprinting, making the information readily available to anyone who wanted it. Astragal Press publications have always constituted a significant part of the EAIA Book Sales Program offerings, and we are delighted that our relationship is to carry on in this new way. We hope that members will take full advantage of it.
