Bertha forced me to apologize to Joe L and chipmunk - 11 replies
First, let me clarify the title; Al has never sent me a PM or me him. What I mean by it is that while thinking about the posts I have made, and reading his, I realize I need to own up to my own short comings. You see, I have never seen Al say a negative thing about anyone here, he posts (a lot), and he gets into the “dirty” posts, but he does ...

Old tool literature recommendations? - 1 reply

Are you a woodworker or a tool setter upper? - 42 replies

A space for knuckle draggers? - 23 replies
Some forums have “Normite” spaces and “Neanderthal” spaces. Noticing that most forums here are based around “Normites”, how about a space for us knuckle draggers to call our own?
