Location: Zululand, South Africa - Currently working in the DRC
I've been a Lurker for a while, and have decided to become public. Some of you may recognise me from TheWoodWhisperer site.
My interests are Woodworking (duh!), Alternative energy, Sustainability.
I generally try to use rescued wood as far as possible, except for composite boards like plywood, MDF etc., and all wood I buy must be from sustainable sources.
My woodworking is largely on hold at the moment, as I am working away from home, and my home trips are mostly filled with other activities.
-- I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.

Hi guys – Greetings from the Democratic Republic of Congo I am firmly ensconced in my tent and I have semi-reliable internet access. I have a ton of work to do even though Sunday is our off-day. Ah well, at least I have a few hours to cat...

This series has been quiet for a while, as I’ve been buying replacement parts off eBay and dealing with several small(ish) technical issues. The members of the ShopSmith owners’ forum have been extremely helpful. My thanks to the LJ ...
A few days ago I tried to dismantle my Goldie’s quill assembly with zero success. I seriously wanted to dismantle this to clean it up properly – I’m sure a bath in degreaser would not be good for the bearing. First I removed ...
