  4. I sure love that Oliver style, Oliver is still alive believe it or not, and it still possesses some of the Oliver ol timely design features, though I believe they are manufactured offshore now? Nothing compared to Shane's ol Oliver. Here's the link if anyone is interested. http://www.olivermachinery.net/

  6. Good Monday Morning! Good Monday morning Patriot Woodworkers! What did you get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead! Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! Our weekend I am building a shade structure behind our home, and our son is building a fence. How do you teach your son to use a hand saw? Show him the fundamentals, then give him a stack of old fence boards to saw in half so they'll fit in the Green waste can. He begged for my Skil Saw once, only once. Proud of him. He's been using a handsaw off and on for a few years, he said with this stack of wood he finally got it, just leave the kid alone is the best thing often times. New members Please welcome the following members to our community. @kentb, @Artie, @S johnson To our new members, thank you for joining us! To our existing members, please click on their names above and shoot them a welcome message. What's It Our January "What's It" is up and running, and we are off to a great start with commentary and suggestions . We'd also like to congratulate @p_toad for his MWTCA Membership win last month. These What's It's aren't easy folks, if they were, the fine folks at MWTCA would have had them nailed down by now, we are hoping that someone has seen one before and can recognize them, and provide a verifiable reference for them as well so we can solve the mysteries. Good luck!

    Thank God for global cooling!!!
  8. WHY? So Disheartening

    Dan, I watched the entire videos, my gosh the hours and life he and his son put into that project, incredible, absolutely incredible. I cannot even ever ever imagine creating any project that last that long, and requires that much patience, and repetitive work, it's not even in my universe of understanding how or what it would take to do something like that, and then the second video, my goodness, what a heart breaker. What I failed to understand, and he did not tie the two events together, the man that ran into the fire to end his own life, was that the same fellow that destroyed his project? He never said it was but they seemed related. Well here is my take on this, of course it's a tragedy that the artwork was lost, after all the time and will power and money expended on that project, but, it does not surprise me at all. People ask why? The Burning Man event, unless you have been to one Dan, you may know more about it than I, but I have spoken to folks who have attended, and the event is a Wood Stock style event with drugs and alcohol as the primary driver for the excitement. There is rampant drug sales at the event, you can find anything under the moon at the Burning Man, from Meth, Cocaine, Ecstasy, Hallucinogenics, you name it, it's there. And then you have thousands of folks high on drugs, and acting like a rolling tribal drug induced mass of people, and by the third day of the week long event folks are going out of their mind. He also stated that art vandalism is on the rise at the Burning Man, well that coincides with our rising national epidemic of opiates and hallucinogenics, that does not surprise me either. Here is a review of a Burning Man event, Burning Man's Debauchery So, if anyone is tempted to go to Burning Man, and take their precious artwork with them, just do it with the understanding that you may have to leave it in the fire and comeback without it I guess. The fact that the artist turner seems perplexed as to "Why", is beyond me, he has been to those events before it appears, and he asks why? Thanks Dan, great heads up, I enjoyed the video of the build, it is so sad it's all gone in one night, just really sad.

  10. In case you still need convincing

    Thanks Gerald, I have no intention on working with this, I was just curious if there was a safer way, kudos to the AAW. @Dadio, thanks for the run down.
  11. In case you still need convincing

    If someone wanted to use this method, isn't there a way to do this without being hands on? Are you able to hook it all up, stand back and flip a switch?

    Understood Gene. Your right. Thanks for the consideration though! Hey, you think Grizzly still has that helical planer for 169.99 ? I bet he'd like that one!
  13. Eating in the Fifties
