  1. Past hour
  2. Ron, if those are the same aids they gave me, they are also Bluetooth capable, meaning you can stream music directly from your phone to your hearing aids. Check it out. My doctor told me I have been listening to too much phone sex. I now have "hearing aids!"
  3. BTDT! I am lucky enough to have the VA do mine. Starkey Halos that bluetooth to/from my phone/app. I've had these a year and still getting used to them. Conversation in a noisy environment is my biggest problem. The audiologist had a set of special ear molds made to reduce feedback and that helps.
  4. Thanks John for the final view...looks great. Certainly you three have been quite busy...enjoy seeing the variety of projects & clients. Looking forward to seeing finished pics of the cedar/walnut chest.
  5. Yeah I know it's Saturday but I spent ~6 hours yesterday following a "weed-eater" around the property; the remainder of the time was re-wrapping line spools. All outside work today is postponed due to the Indiana weather pattern...~10-15 min each of blue sky, clouds mixed with blue sky, clouds, rain...repeat the cycle...have spent some time in the garage and headed back in a bit for R & (recovery & reorganize); Tomorrow church, couple of errands, lunch then see what the weather allows from there.
  6. Man, John, you put me to shame!

    Question About Woodsmith 'Tip'

    Saw the same tip Fred...didn't bother to watch...I've done this for years...when ever use for utility blades has expired, I usually do a quick pass of the edge at the grinder. It then gets tossed in a plastic container with expired bolts, nut, nails, screws, etc. Eventually one of two things occur: (a) disposed at our re-cycling center (b) accumulates to eventually be sold with my other scrap iron. A third option is under review but has not been exercised to this point (c) scatter about in the drive-way of any county official who forgot how/why they were elected to office

    Japan Is Not Like Any Other Country

    I was there in 1966. Unfortunately, not long enough to be able to see much of the country but what I remember, it was a beautiful place.

    Tabs on the Weather...

    Calling for rain all day. I'll believe it when I see it. Need the water badly so it probably won't happen. Maybe I should wash the car. That always gets it raining.

    Graphic Error?

    If you examine the "QUICK LINKS" section at the bottom of these pages, it appears that some of the links are "covered" with a curved graphic.

    Question About Woodsmith 'Tip'

    The publication choice is guided by marketing thoughts: tips from readers give the impression of "involvement", which fosters a sense of inclusion for the customer. They'll publish what you send in, but they'll also just make stuff up as filler. It's a form of the old "shill" bidder at auctions: they're just bumping the price up. Readers DO participate, but editors are guided by the need for people to subscribe. We have recycling, so I throw all the metals into that bin. I don't bag because our service uses the big automated bin-loading trucks, so there aren't any hands to cut; and bags are a real problem for recyclers. I think most iron items get screened out with magnets, so someone getting a cut on screws or blades is unlikely. I'd think that glass and sharp plastic are more of a problem. If people are sorting through trash by hand, without gloves, they are already beyond our help.

    Should be able to travel by then....hole in the leg should be healed up, allowing me to drive. I'll bring a couple fancy planes along....someone can provide the practice boards? Might even bring along the Infamous Aldi's Chisels?

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
