    MEDIA RELEASE

    Winning Solution for Disposing of Old Batteries


    After much talk of batteries leaking heavy metals into the soil and water supplies, many are hesitant to throw them away.

    The problem is, what do you do with batteries once they have outlived their usefulness?

    Batteries are piling up in our homes and workshops - we want to get rid of them, but don't want to throw them out.

    Paul Fulcher, organizer of the Ottawa Woodworking Show has experienced this first hand and has come up with a winning solution to encourage people to dispose of old batteries safely. On October 21,22, 23 he will team up with CALL2RECYCLE (a non-profit recycling organization) and offer a temporary location for people to drop off their old batteries.

    To make this even more attractive, for every battery turned in visitors to the Ottawa Woodworking Show receive a ballot to win a variety of cordless power tools. Visitors to the woodworking event will be given one ballot for every battery that they take to the show.

    Prizes include power tools from Bosch, Ridgid, Porter-Cable and DeWalt.
    Household and workshop batteries will be accepted. See complete list below.

    Admission to the woodworking show is $10 and covers all weekend. In addition to disposing of old batteries safely, attendees can take in carving and turning competitions, attend seminars on woodworking and home improvement, and get deals on the latest tools. The woodworking show is October 21, 22, 23 at Lansdowne Park. The battery recycling booth will be open during the show: Friday 1pm -8pm, Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday 10am-5pm.

    Batteries accepted for Recycling:

    Consumer batteries each weighing less than 5kg:
    • Nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd)
    • Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH)x
    • Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
    • Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn)
    • Small Sealed Lead Acid (SSLA/Pb)
    • Lithium Primary
    • Alkaline (AA, AAA, 9V, etc)

    Cell phones (and their batteries) – regardless of size, make, model or age.

    MEDIA RELEASE

    World's Safest Table Saw - Rips Through Lumber, Won't Cut Fingers!




    This week, at the Ottawa Woodworking Show, there will be live demonstrations of the world's safest table saw - the new SawStop!

    The SawStop has quickly become North America's #1 table saw for hobbyist woodworkers and D.I.Y.ers. The reason - this powerful saw simply will not cut flesh.

    This award winning saw actually detects human flesh, and immediately shuts off in less than 1/1000th of a second, saving the operator from injury.

    The SawStop has already been credited with saving thousands of users from injuries, and continues to be incorporated into more and more schools and workshops across Canada.

    Whether in the market for a table saw, or just want to see this amazing demonstration, every woodworker has ten good reasons to check out this new flesh detecting saw!

    For a short video on how the SawStop works, see:




    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esnQwVZOrUU

    For a (super slow motion) video showing the saw shutting off when a finger is touched to the moving blade, see:

    519-449-2444 office 519-755-5862 cell

    Media Event:
    An exclusive showing of the SawStop saw in action.
    Watch the saw rip through lumber, but stop when it detects flesh.
    Thursday October 20th at 12:00noon in the Aberdeen Pavilion at Lansdowne Park.

    See the complete seminar schedule at: http://www.woodshows.com/index.php?categoryid=28


    Seminar Leader Bios:

    RonBarter1.jpgA founding member of The Furniture Society, Ron Barter has an enthusiasm for furniture making and design that he has shared with students at Rosewood Studio since 2002. In July of 2007, he became the owner and program director of the school, where he continues to draw on over twenty years of experience designing and building furniture for a living.

    AdrianFerrazzutti1.jpgAdrian Ferrazzutti of Guelph, Ontario, has over ten years’ professional experience as a maker of fine furniture and decorative wooden objects. He is a 1998 graduate of the Fine Woodworking Program at the College of the Redwoods in California, where he studied for two years with James Krenov. His work has been widely published in books and magazines, and he is a contributing writer for Fine Woodworking magazine. Adrian works independently as well as in collaboration with architects to create unique work for private residences.

    KarenMcBride1.jpgKaren McBride excels at creating contemporary furniture of her own design. She teaches courses at Lee Valley and Rosewood Studio and has recently published articles in the Lee Valley online newsletter.

    A ten-week internship in 2005 with Michael Fortune ignited Karen’s passion for design as she absorbed as much as she could from a master furniture maker.

    She works part time designing and making furniture in the log house studio which she restored in Dunrobin, Ontario.

    VicTesolin1.jpgVic Tesolin was a student at Rosewood Studio where he studied furniture design and making under the guidance of some of North America’s top furniture makers. Vic ran his own studio furniture business designing and crafting furniture by commission, while working at Rosewood as a part time instructor and craftsman in residence. He has also held the position of editor at Canadian Woodworking magazine. Currently, Vic is the Technical Advisor at Lee Valley Tools. He designs and builds furniture in a studio in his home in Carleton Place, Ontario.

    MartySchlosser1.jpgMarty Schlosser has been designing and making custom furniture for residences, commercial establishments and charitable organizations for over 30 years. Marty also enjoys sharing his knowledge and love of wood with others, through classes on fine finishing and woodworking techniques and through magazine articles. Marty is a member of the Ottawa Woodworkers Association and is registered with the Canadian Arts & Crafts Index. Marty’s studio is located in Kingston, from where he makes commission-based, custom-designed furniture.

    RobBrown1.jpgRob Brown is currently the editor of Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvement magazine. He also designs high quality custom furniture and shoji screen systems that are beautiful, functional and durable. Traditional joinery methods - proven by time for their strength and enduring beauty – contrast with a contemporary aesthetic culled from Nature. The result: home furnishing with simple, clean lines, strength, purpose and style. In addition to creating custom furniture and shoji screen systems, Rob also teaches numerous woodworking classes in his studio. Ranging from introductory woodworking lessons to advanced techniques and projects, these classes are fun, informative and always safe.

    With a lineup like that I wouldn't be in and out the door in an hour. I might even show up the second day. Too bad it's way up there in the frozen north.

    Looking at the website it sure looks good. Is 3 days enough to see everything?
    This show and Kitchener have the right idea. We need to support them.

    Win a $100 gift certificate to spend at the Ottawa Woodworking Show, October 21, 22, 23, 2011.

    It's easy - just 'like' our FaceBook page, and you will be automatically entered into the draw.
    The contest is open until Thursday October 20th at 12:00 noon. At that time the draw will be made and the winner announced on this FaceBook page and the Canadian Woodworking Forum.
    The gift certificate will be picked up at the show.
    If you win, but are not attending the show, the certificate cannot be redeemed for cash, but it is totally transferable to a friend.

    Good luck!

    Another temptation to join Facebook! (I worked around it by liking it for LOML). I'm hoping if he is the lucky winner, he'll transfer his winnings to me!
    I feel so fortunate to know several of the presenters who are members or contributors to the Ottawa Woodworkers. You will not be disappointed if you see any of the seminars by Karen, Marty, Vic, Brian, Ron and Pierre. All very knowledgable and approachable folk. Just wish some of what they have would rub off on me.

    I dropped by quickly yesterday to take a quick walkthrough. More than a few things caught my eye. Can't wait to go back again today. I'm loving the fact that I can pay once and go several times throughout the weekend. I live 5 minutes away and will likely attend a seminar or too that I otherwise couldn't. From talking to a few vendors it sounds like there was a good crowd yesterday!

    Looks like another GREAT show. I'm on my way very soon! Looking forward to meeting "some of the guys & gals".

    N.B. off topic Grin: last winter southern Ontar-iar-io had much more snow than Ottawa did. I only got to use my snow blower 3 times. Must be all that hot air from the politicians.
