  1. A really wonderful forum for everything "Longrifle". Dedicated the building and studying of The American Long Rifle.
  2. Why a Host? Since this board was created over 10 years ago the Veterans Forum has been a big part of our community. But, the activity on the board has long been mediocre, and I know exactly why! Because most veterans are fine just not talking about their service. Typically their service was long ago, maybe on some far off land, and it was a time of their lives they'd rather keep to themselves, or perhaps they just felt really modest about their service and never felt their service was much to write home about. There are so many more reasons why, if we went into them here I'd never finish this introduction. So I am hoping by having an official host for this forum, that we may interact more as a veteran, and with a veteran(s). We want this forum to be a good place for everyone, non veterans and veterans alike to get together and just talk about all kinds of things related to our veterans. Introduction So, I'd like to announce that @AndrewB will be taking over our Veterans Forum as our new host. Andrew volunteered. At first Andrew was thinking the "Free For All" would be a good fit for him. After he and I spoke a little more we both thought the Veterans Forum would be pretty danged cool for him to take over as well, so really we are getting a "two fer" from Andrew, he'll be hosting the Free For All and the Veterans. I'll let Andrew answer most of your questions if you have any regarding his background in service of our nation, and his experience on other software platforms for hosting and operations. But I can say this, Andrew served active duty Army from 2003 to 2006 and he did his time in the Sandbox (Baghdad from 2003 to 2004) and in 2006 he transitioned to the National Guard until 2015 for a total of 12 years in service to our great nation. See Staff Directory, our new host is listed. https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/staff/ Duties Andrew will be performing the basic duties of forum hosts, such as monitoring topics, looking for violators of our policies, foul language, distasteful posts, images or anything that is not family friendly. Andrew, you have chosen a job that is akin to the Maytag Repairman, since our folks here are the absolute best, the above listed violations are hardly ever seen. Among his basic forum duties Andrew will also be responsible for the following: Posting relevant topics to the community regarding Veterans Affairs. Posting changes in policy that effects our veterans from the House of Representatives to the Executive branch. Reporting on new laws that are passed by our congress. Reporting on laws in the pipeline that effect our veterans. Posting reminders of veterans related holidays, and anniversaries of historic battles and wars. And, if there are more items our members would like to see here, please let us know here in this topic. This job may turn out to be a pretty big job, we may have to solicit help from another veteran for Andrew! In Closing So let's give our friend AndrewB a nice welcome to the host circle, and as a part of our Patriot Woodworker Staff. We are very happy you are here Andrew.
  3. Dear Patriot Woodworker's Just as a friendly reminder, please view our forum guidelines at: https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/guidelines/ Our Guidelines are always accessible by hovering your cursor over the "About Us" navigation at the top of our website and clicking on "Guidelines". And, for your quick reading pleasure, I've picked a few guidelines that are really the most important to remember, as can be seen below, thank you! Respect is the name of the game. You must respect your fellow members. Please refrain from inflammatory and defamatory comments as well as flaming, taunting, and general disrespect. Do not simply put down the opinion or advice given by others. If you don't agree with it, say why - respectfully. Don't just tell them they're wrong. Do not make uninvited remarks about typos, duplicate posts, posting styles, etc. When an opinion-based discussion is being had, do not state things like "there is no argument" as if your opinion is the only one or the only one that matters. When someone has clearly stated their opinion, do not say things like "Are you serious?" and "Are you kidding me?" Remember, this is not a debate club. This is a friendly discussion community. Allow people to have their opinion. No one is to act as some sort of opinion judge, responding to each one to say whether they agree with it or not or whether or not it is a valid, well thought out opinion. We do not allow threads to be started to discuss who or what is the most overrated, who or what is your least favorite, etc. Moderators and myself have the final say on anything. If you have a problem, you may make a complaint to them directly and not publicly on the website. Creating threads or posts that question or reference administrative decisions or potential administrative decisions, such as post removals and thread closures, is not permitted. We are not perfect and if you feel that we have made a mistake, please privately contact a staff member and we will review the situation. If you would like a copy of your removed post so that you can adjust it and re-post, please contact us. As long as we wouldn't prefer you to simply start over, we'll be glad to send you a copy.
  4. Looks like the donation meter has stalled out. Come on guys help John out to keep this forum running. He works hard to keep us all happy, the least we can do is see he makes his goal of at least 1 k . Herb
  5. Dear folks, we are going to start to purge the Free For All Forum of it's thousands of topics, we are having to conserve valuable server space. If you have anything you want to save in the Free For All Forum, please start saving your items as you see fit over the next week. Next weekend the topics will start to disappear, up to the last couple pages. Thank you for your understanding. Attention: @Chips N Dust
  6. Something near and dear to my own heart is reading, and I love reading manuals and how to books about our craft. How would you all feel about a sub forum for reading books for each pertinent forum such as General Woodworking, Turning, Scrolling, etc. In this sub forum we could share the books we read and review them as well and exchange tips on where to find those books for a great price etc etc. Just trying to get a feel for the popularity or not. Thanks for hearing me out.
  7. Woodworking Web is a relatively new forum community run by one of the most experienced woodworking community administrators, Martin Sojka. There are some wonderful projects on display at Woodworking Web.
  8. I see that Fine Woodworking has re-instated their forums https://www.finewoodworking.com/discussion-forum I got on and surprised to see nearly 6000 pages of threads. Then on the third page, I saw one of my posts from 10 years ago. Not organized by topic, but it's there.
  9. Hey folks, I wanted to bounce something off of ya'll. While going through the forums and reading some of the wonderfully awesome content, something I see frequently are titles to the topics that have nothing to do with the topic, or at least not to the observer. For me, it gets a tad frustrating as I wish I could determine a topic by the title, frankly if it's even anything I want to open and read. For example, and I am not picking on anyone here! These are my own made up examples. A topic title "The Best Thing in My Shop" is a title for a topic about a new Miter Saw that someone purchased and they absolutely love the saw. Instead the topic could be titled "My New Makita LS1508F Miter Saw". The first example I used I have no idea what that topic is about or if I even want to read it. While the second example tells me what that topic is about and I have developed an interest in reading it purely by the title name. Here's another one. A title "Another Project" for a topic about a cabinet someone is making, and this is supposed to be an announcement of their embarking on that project. In its place, a more appropriate topic title would be, "Starting an Oak Wall Cabinet" or if you know you are going to create additional topics for the same project, the title could be "Oak Wall Cabinet Part 1". I feel all of you who are not naming your topics to reflect the actual content of your topic, are doing yourself a disservice, I feel folks may just walk on by that topic looking for something with a title they can grab on too, with interest. Also, by titling your topic appropriately we are able to see it appear in search results at a later date, our search engine love titles, it's the first thing it searches for when someone does a search for "oak cabinet". Thanks for reading my friends!
  10. @Fred Wilson has been our Scroll Saw Forum host for several years now, and he has done a bang up job in keeping folks happy, and helping out as many as he can. Fred's life has gotten pretty busy this last year and he is finding it hard to get over here as often as he'd like, so Fred is going to relinquish the reins to a new host (yet to be determined), and he is and has been focusing on family and life in general. Fred wants to be a regular ol member now, he'll still come aboard and chime in and hassle y'all, but just know that you can no longer beat up on Fred, since he is now officially off The Patriot Woodworker payroll and not bringing home his usual six figure salary from us, yet he is now a regular ol woodworker like the rest of us, just enjoying the view around here, and participating at leisure. Fred, thank you sir, for your service to our forum, and your un-ending patience with those of us who needed the help, and it was a pleasure shared by many I am sure, to know you, and to work with you. Thank you Fred, for your service to our community! If you'd all like to stay connected with Fred, you can also find him at his own website http://www.gopopsshop.com/index.php Hey folks, you can still purchase these exclusive Patriot Woodworker plaques from Fred! Fred made a batch of these back in the day and he gifted them to our sponsors as a thank you for their support. To order one please see at Patriot Woodworker Plaque
  11. We are currently in the process of moving our Archived Forums to our live Forums as sub-categories of each. The Archived Forums will still be read only, as we slowly and patiently move them to the live forums after much editing and clean up of each topic is performed. I just moved the Woodworking archived forum to the live General Woodworking forum as a sub category. This will, after the moves are complete, save real-estate on our forums page, thus eliminating the entire "Archived Forums" section.
  12. I just wanted to update folks on the status of Kieth Mealy as our Finishing Forum Host. At last contact it sounded like Keith was up to his eyeballs with life and business and he is just having a heck of a time getting back here with us. Believe me, I know how he feels, sometimes just to squeeze in a few minutes can be a daunting task, and it stays in the back of your head as something you know you need to do, but just can't, then ya start to feel bad about not being able to get it done, and then the task just becomes a pain in the rear to have lurking in the back of your brain, yep, we all been there! We have not had contact with Keith for a little while now so that means he is being driven hard elsewhere, and we should respect that and wish him the best in his business and his family. As you can see in the image of Keith and kids, he is performing a much more important task, sharing his knowledge with the younger generation, and he is teaching the kids how to extract honey! Hey he has other hobbies ya know! I want to personally thank Keith for the time he spent here, his weekly finishing topics and his interaction in forum topics and posts, were and still are highly valued here on TPW, and are now a permanent part of our information structure, and that my friends is priceless. You can't buy information like Keith shared with us, the information that Keith dispersed here in the Finishing Forum can only be gotten from a man in the business, and with years of experience behind him, and you cannot put a value on that my friends. Like our Scrolling Forum Host Fred Wilson, Keith is moving on to being a laid back low key member of The Patriot Woodworker, where the stresses of meeting deadlines with the weekly topic are no more, and the contentious meetings on The Patriot Woodworker corporate jet are no more, and also his six figure salary as well that he earned as host, is no more. But one thing for sure, a legacy of wonderful information and knowledge in the sometimes mysterious field of finishing, has been left behind by our friend Keith Mealy. We wish him the best in all he does, and we hope someday he'll drop on by and just say howdy, we do miss him. If anyone has a direct "Bat Line" to Kieth, please let him know he is thought of highly here, and we are forever grateful for the time he spent here. Cheers folks!
  13. The CNC forum has moved to The Woodworking Discussion Forum. It is now a sub forum similar to General Woodworking, Turners, etc. Thank you!
  14. The forum for Shopsmith users and future users.
  15. What is it A review of our Free For All forum, and an effort to clean up old files and images in order to save server resources. What will happen? A case by case action will be performed to determine what images are useful, and what images may be deleted. In some cases entire topics may be deleted, topics with multiple pages full of memes for example, the memes and frivolous images tend to be many, and take up valuable space on our server. We love the Free For All Forum, but unfortunately, it will have to be thinned back in order to conserve resources on our server, for woodworking related subjects and images. In a case where there may be a topic with many pages, we would delete the first two thirds of the topics pages, leaving the last third for continued participation. Since these topics do not contain any value for woodworking, nor does anyone actually go back and review memes posted 6 months ago, we feel this would be less intrusive on our guests and members. Most of the posts in the long running topics are quick hit and run "throw away" posts that contain entertainment value for that moment in time, but nothing of archival value. Why? The costs of running a forum, the costs of running a Managed Virtual Private Server are high, if we allow too many unrelated-to-woodworking files and graphic content to be placed in our community, thus taking up valuable server resources, we will be forced to pay for the next tier level of Managed hosting for our server, creating more of a financial burden on our community. The server space or room is not unlimited. We will hit a wall soon. Thank you for your understanding, we will try to make this as painless as possible for all of you. Please remember, when we make changes like this, it is done with a heavy heart, these decisions weigh heavily on myself because I hate upsetting folks, I know some folks are going to be upset, but please understand, this community is a 100 percent volunteer effort by myself, and our staff, not one single person including myself, gets paid one single dime, I do not walk away with a single penny of profit from this wonderful adventure we have created here. With the help of God and the complete understanding and patience from my own family, am I allowed to be here. I appreciate everyone here, if you lurk here, participate here, share here, we love ya'll, and thank you again for your understanding.
  16. Home of the American GI Forum of the United States
  17. General forum for woodworking. Special sections for various areas . Nice turning section
  18. Proposal A new CNC forum has been discussed, bantered and messaged about. I am starting to get multiple messages regarding this subject, and I love them! But I just thought perhaps it would be best to put the idea out here, in open forum format so we can collaborate on the idea and discuss how best to proceed, and to have all suggestions in one area. Firstly, I love the idea, we want this to happen, and we will make it happen, but we want to jump in correctly and good. We already have a great start to the CNC Gallery as suggested by @honesttjohn and he has populated that gallery with a wonderful start of images to get us kicked off in the right direction. http://thepatriotwoodworker.com/gallery/category/22-cnc/ Questions So, here are a couple questions we have: The primary name of the CNC forum? Simply, CNC Forum? Should we have sub-categories within the forum? Your feedback Please ask questions here, submit your ideas for a successful CNC Forum, all ideas are welcome, no matter how crazy they are, we welcome all! Thank you woodworkers for your feedback on this very important matter. I'd like to remind everyone that this is your forums, the more participation the better.
  19. Announcement On behalf of our entire staff we are pleased to announce @kmealy (Keith Mealy) as our new "Finishing, Tips and Tricks" Forum Host. Introduction Keith has a vast background in woodworking and finishing. He has been with us for several months now and he has proven to be a great asset and mentor to the rest of us who need that little push in the right direction in the realm of finishing. Keith is the past president of the Cincinnati Woodworkers Club and he is currently a finishing instructor for his local Woodcraft store. Keith also comes from a hosting background where he dispensed his knowledge at the ever so popular WOOD forums. "His wide range of woodworking skills make him an excellent instructor and his organization always leads to a successful class. Currently he is teaching Finishing Basics and Coloring Wood. Obviously, Keith can (nearly) do it all, and his classes are always popular." Source: Woodcraft on Keith Mealy We are fortunate to have Keith and his expertise here with us. Keith's duties will be to assist anyone who enters his forum for finishing advice, finishing suggestions, or just to show off that finishing project, or at times even, he'll be here for us as we show off our finishing disasters. Either way I am sure he'll have the guidance you need to help create that perfect finished project. So, please join us in welcoming Keith Mealy to our community as your new Finishing,Tips and Tricks Forum Host. Thank you
  20. Sketchup users form for questions about software
  21. Sometimes our home page gets a little long, and scrolling down can be somewhat irritating if you have to do it often. In order to shorten the home page forum you can click on the "down arrow" at the right of each forum header in order to collapse the forum, thus shortening up the home page. Have fun!
  22. John, Again, not a complaint or bug, but rather a suggestion- and it may not be possible. I noticed that when replying to a post the only way to provide a graphic/picture is to upload that to the gallery, then transfer it to the forum topic response. It would be faster/easier, on many occasions, to have the ability to attach a file to the response. As the software is now programmed that process can be done from the desktop- eliminating the upload step.
