Sad for all of us. Ernie Grimes passed away June 3, 2013
Ernie, born May 10, 1920 was 93.
He left his body to Tufts. There will be no wake. Ernie had no blood family left but he surely left a large family of friends and woodworkers.

Ernie built this treadle lathe for demonstrating at Club events. The Club still has the lathe and intends to restore it and get it back on display.
