    Missing Member

    Sorry to hear you've had no response Al...Do you (or anyone else) know the specific city/town in Iowa where he lives? With that, we might be able to obtain a mailing address and possibly a phone number or email.

    Lowe's Snags Craftsman Tools

    Could be...last I knew Kenmore brand will likely be offered for sale. Sears cut their decades long contract with Whirlpool a few months back. I've yet to see who is/will be making Kenmore Appliances if anyone. Will be interesting to see...thus far that has not occurred with Ace Hardware's (at least here) but primarily has been prior to Stanley/B&D obtaining Craftsman brand. received a sale circular from our local Ace a couple of days ago...Craftsman stuff shown pretty much same price as the Sears sale circular received today.

    Congrats Pat on the new "family" member...can't help you on tips/techniques etc. but if you haven't already, check out You-Tube (just search Leigh D4)...lots of videos out there. Also, check Leigh's site for some instructional videos too. Good luck with the new toy and BTW, we'll need pictures too.

    Tariffs Are Kicking In.

    I understand their situation and potential reasoning but it comes down to a simple equation I learned years ago...C/P/V (Cost/Price/Value)...you can raise your price based on your cost, but is the value still there for said cost? Ultimately the end user/buyer determines if the price point is reasonable or not and makes purchases accordingly. So while Grizzly (& likely others) may feel compelled to increase some items by 25% they also must be prepared to experience sales declines proportionally which could lead to unsold inventory...that then leads to lack of inventory turns...difficult position to be in...obviously individual's discretionary, disposal income will not immediately increase by 25% since "we" can't vote ourselves a raise so...

  20. Summer Swim Awards/Recognition Banquet tonight & Conference meet most all day tomorrow...REALLY need to mow but the grass (& sky for that matter) hasn't been close to dry for 4 days and forecast doesn't look promising for a couple of days. Church Sunday...any free time TBD.
  21. Have fun, enjoy the show & be safe. As my mom always used to tell my brother & me, "be careful...there are a lot of nuts out there!" Bookcase came out great...like Gene said, we need pictures of the finished bowl.

    @John Morris --- @Ron Dudelston Suggest this thread be moved to Tools, Research, Reviews, & Safety? More appropriate there IMO. Lot of good info here. Thanks in advance.

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.
