60+, been trying to woodwork since I’ve been a teenager, never met an old tool I didn’t like. While working I seemed to have more time to buy tools than to make sawdust. Retirement is just around the corner.

With my retirement pending I’ve been doing much more woodworking browsing.

I found the multi-split megethread. After reading about 2000 of the recent posts I feel the same comradarie as I experience on the old USENET rec.woodworking in the ‘80s. This was back when there was a split fermenting between the old-tool/manual “Neantherthal’ or “Galoot” woodworkers and the “power tools rule” - “Normite” (I.e Norm Abraham’s) woodworkers. I’m happy to see that ther has been a sensible Détente between the factions.

I’m hope you’ll forgive the ramblings of a “feeling old” man. I’m glad I found this thread and hope to eventually positively contribute.

Hello,

I’m 60+, been trying to woodwork since I’ve been a teenager, never met an old tool I didn’t like. While working I seemed to have more time to buy tools than to make sawdust. Retirement is just around the corner.

With my retirement pending I’ve been doing much more woodworking browsing.

I recently found the multi-split megethread. After reading about 2000 of the recent posts I feel the same comradarie as I experience on the old USENET rec.woodworking in the ‘80s. This was back when there was a split fermenting between the old-tool/manual woodworking “Neantherthal’ or “Galoot” woodworkers and the “power tools rule” – “Normite” (I.e Norm Abraham’s) woodworkers. I’m happy to see that ther has been a sensible Détente between the factions.
