    Big Iron auction (not mine)

    Actually, I like the idea of 3 phase equipment and a VFD. A VFD would give good soft starts, and lots of control for something like lathe speeds.

    How to Start a Fight

    According to that Darwin thing all life is related....shame you can't choose your relatives. Given what I see of humans these days, I might prefer Klingon's.... Where is Spock when you need him?

    How to Start a Fight

    Darwin and his laws of selective evolution ahve not always been successful at making the best humans or eliminating the bad ones from the human gene pool quickly enough....give it time...the tree of life is self pruning...

    Got my new 2017 tool catalog

    High mileage trade ins often don't bring much, you might be better trying to sell her outright....! (ducks from wrench thrown my direction...just kidding bro!) In all seriousness, I was one year ahead of my wife in College. When I was a freshmen, went on a student trip to the middle east and one of the girls on the trip was Kathy, who would be my wife's room mate her freshman year. Gentleman we met during our travels offered us 10 Camels for Kathy and was quite offended when we wouldn't trade her. Would not trade my wife for a Camel....but checked out an Italian band saw at Wood Werks supply here in Columbus last night. Band saw has possibilities....but it wouldn't rub my feet when they got tired from standing on the concrete shop floor. But then again, neither will my wife....!

    Got my new 2017 tool catalog

    ...and the sad thing is that there have been plenty of good American tool makers who ahve gone the way of the dodo bird before that. Most prized tool in my shop is a large vintage Buffalo Tools Co drill press, probably Pre WWII. Thing is a beast.... If I could buy tools like THAT...I would never look at an Asian tool again...

    Where are all the good drill bits?

    ...there is that reduction in the local stray cat population to consider....

    Got my new 2017 tool catalog

    She is...I don't mind joking about wives but...my neighbor is a woodworker also. His wife wants half of the garage for her car in winter, can't blame her we live in Ohio. Live in a neighborhood with attached two car garages.... Every morning I see my wife scrape ice off of her car during winter so I can ahve a full garage workshop...and I am mighty grateful...even more so when she scrapes my windshield for me... She does have a hard time saying no to me in other ways though, which is probably why we have 5 kids....

    Got my new 2017 tool catalog

    I can't complain, she has never said no once if we could afford something...and that is in 28 years of marriage....not that I haven't been tempted...!

    I don't think I ahve ever seen Steven with a plane that far from his body...

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!


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.


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.



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.
