    He was working on a Model A ford truck I believe. Larry did confirm that it was a slip of the finger. Married 65 years.
  2. Not if I can get there first...

    Birthday Wishes

    Just noticed that steamshovel is celebrating a birthday today. Happy 77th Preston. Was the fire department notified about all those candles burning at once ?

    Wondering if the years might have been a typo. Larry is 2 months younger than I am and I'm 86. It would have had to be a childhood marriage.
  5. Sometimes you wish the doctors felt the same pain as the patient. Maybe that would speed up the whole process. Wishing the best for your wife. Hope you'll be able to fill those pockets again soon.

    John Morris sent me his e/mail address. I messaged him earlier today. Thank's John ! Just got an e/mail from Larry. He said he is doing fine. He and his wife celebrated their 75th anniversary last Wednesday. Congrats are in order.
  7. Not on coumadin, but my baby aspirin has been upped to a full aspirin a day. Seems to have the same basic side effects, but I guess it does it's intended work.

    Still haven't heard anything from Larry. No response to the PM. Does anyone have an e/ mail adress or phone number to contact him ?

    Tariffs Are Kicking In.

    I remember when the tariff (I think it was 20%) kicked in for the Canadian cedar last summer. My local lumberyard stopped carrying its inventory because of the decline in sales. It's still available at Kohl's. It looks like tool sales will be taking a plunge.

    Guess I can go along with that.

    Do I Need This?

    Have one in my den under the secretary desk. Used to get a lot of use, but not much lately. I'm sure that if I let it go, I'll need it.
  12. I guess that once you're addicted Dave there's no quitting. Everything arrived today. I've installed the router in the router table. Haven't had a chance to give it a try.

    Sorry to hear this John. My condolences to you and the family.
  14. No shipping charges. I did have about $11 in taxes. That's still only $239. Should be arriving tomorrow.
  15. Just priced the Bosch with the fixed base and plunge base and added the under table base at Amazon. Total price with all 3 bases figures out to be $238.00. For $13 more you get all three bases. OH Boy, should I or shouldn't I ? Well I bit the bullet and ordered the Bosch 1617 with all three bases. I went with the refurbished router, so with all three bases it cost $228.00

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.
