NE Lathe Trolls Get-Together NYC - Wed 7/10/13

This is where record cutters raise questions about cutting, and trade wisdom and experiment results. We love Scully, Neumann, Presto, & Rek-O-Kut lathes and Wilcox-Gay Recordios (among others). We are excited by the various modern pro and semi-pro systems, too, in production and development. We use strange, extinct disc-based dictation machines. And other stuff, too.

NE Lathe Trolls Get-Together NYC - Wed 7/10/13

Unread postby piaptk » Tue Jun 25, 2013 11:42 pm

Hello Trolls, Steve and I are working to put together a meetup in NYC on Wed. July 10th. Nothing crazy, just a bunch (or a couple) of record cutters meeting up, talking shop (or whatever you wanna talk about), having some drinks, trading unused gear for usuable gear, and generally hanging out with likeminded gear-heads.

We are still trying to determine the best NYC neighborhood (Manhattan, Brooklyn, etc), type of venue (house, bar, coffee shop, etc) and time frame (day time, night time). So if you can come (or have an awesome rooftop patio, backyard, or roomy loft and can host), please chip in and let us know your preferences.

I don't know if it should be in the UK, but it would be so great a "European Vinyl Industry Professionals Meeting" or something like that...

I can talk to my local university contacts to organize a congress, conferences, demostrations...I don't know...

Any idea? Suggestion?

Let's keep this on topic with NYC, Wednesday July 10. Please start up a separate thread for any other meetups. :)

(Just because it's hard enough to organize in a thread when we are ON topic. I am a fan of tangents, usually.)

definitely up for a meet in NYC.
Let me know once a location is solidified, I might take the train in from Bethel, or drive with Dietrich if he can make it too.

I'll chip in...First post! Been lurking the past few weeks but this seems like a good place to start. I'm working towards setting up my own personal rig soon and cutting some lathes with forum members as we speak. Be great to gather some more first hand advice and wisdom. May I suggest an evening event - perhaps a sunset rooftop event in BK or maybe even a hang a place that has outdoor seating? Here's a possible spot near me that has great pizza, outdoor seating, is unpretentious and awesome:

A Bkln sunset rooftop event sounds awesome to me. Do you have a rooftop, by any chance. Personally, I'd prefer somebodies studio or residence, as I can't usually afford NYC restaurant drink prices.

Well firstly, before we get rolling, hi, I'm Angus. :D So with that introduction sorted, yeah, I could work something for my rooftop. Maybe we could actually order a few pies from il Porto (it's really good and cheap) and use my rooftop to sink some Beers and chat- I live with my girlfriend right near the navy yards in Clinton hill / fort Greene. there's an excellent view of the Manhattan skyline and sunset. If we wanna make this all official, what's the best way? Should we gather invites and I can PM my address? Or maybe meet at il porto and then order what is needed, drink a beer there then head over together?

Also, Piaptk, Adam from corporate records mentioned you just yesterday and that I should get in touch- looks like things are working out nicely eh! Are you still on your extended trip around the US?

Why don't organize an international meeting of all lathe trolls of this forum in a specific place somewhere in the world like AES conventions ?
I am secure that here many people could appreciate this...

Great stuff. It's a date. Steve - i'll PM you now. Also, will def give Adam a call.

Regarding, gear, I should also put it out there that I'm currently looking for a humble rig of my own to get started with. Hoping to track one of the usual suspects (Presto, etc) and open to 6n types or suitcase options. If anyone is planning on coming, and has a working setup they're looking to shift, please let me know.

So, its looking like i (and maybe steve and anyone else who wants to come early) will meet at il porto around 5 for the early birds. Then Angus will come get us when he gets off work and we will go up to his rooftop until he kicks us out or everyone gets bored and leaves... This wednesday!
