I really forget that there are forums. I read everything mainly from the RSS feed and it all just comes out the same. Something grabs me, and I follow up with all the comments. Sometimes I am surprised and follow something that I would not have clicked on as a forum topic.

If I got this right, a Normite is a power tool user, and a Neanderthal /knuckle dragger is a hand tool user. Since I tend to use both what’s that make me? Furthering my education here so be kind. I am interested in hand tools and learning more than what I think I know. I do like using both depending on the project, or one or the other.

Yeah, my handplane forum is where the primitives congregate. There was an off-topic neanderthalish thread started by Stumpy Nubs. It was shut-down for off-topicness and all manner of bad behavior ensued. This can be the spot if you choose it to be!

GregN, simple test:

Did you feel anything? A smile? Butterflies? If so, you’re a knuckle-dragger.

Now try this:

Same rules. ;)

>Gregn
If Normite=”tailed tools” and Neanderthal = “unpluged”
Then combination = Normanderthal
Else combination = Neamerite

Al, I couldn’t stop drooling at the hand tools, in fact it is now my desk top picture along with the many others I use.
Thanks KS, I guess that makes me a Neamerite for the time being.

Took Bertha’s test and the first picture just made my hands tired. Now the second picture is almost like a pin-up girl. I may just have to print it and hang it in my cubicle at work. LOL Guess I know what category I belong to.

Thanks Al !!!!

Pdub, there’s nothing to be ashamed about the enticing PM2000, that’s for sure!

I’m a handtool guy and would never buy one, but even I think that PM2000 is sexy, but the PM2066 is a new level sexy.

As an aside I would love to have a PM 18” bandsaw for resawing, mmmmm.

August, I suspected I loved you; now I’m certain of it. You made my night, you metal half-breed:) LOL so hard; I don’t have the stones to post actual pictures of SS tech. I tip my hat, Al.

August, look at that black laquer cabinet, crisp logo, shiny wheel, you know you want one ;)

Imagine what it’d look like next to your Sheldon; women would flock; and you’d be the safest guy on your block; wait, you’ve got 3-phase….you’d DEFINITELY be the safest guy on your block :)

August, my friend, you make me happy. There’s no better fight picking fodder than a hi-res photo of the PM in all it’s glory. It’s amazing that some of these projects here at LJ were executed without it! The safest method, after all, is to unplug all your machines. Don’t trip on your way into the workshop and you’ve got nothing to worry about from the lawyers, politicians, and OSHA. A photo of “modern technology” alongside anything from the “vintage monsters” thread is embarrassing. There are still some guys here with heavy metal. They have my respect.

The friggin’ Lehman Shield. That’s knuckle-dragger material for sure! That dulcet voice of yours is just a bonus ;)

I work with metal working machines all day at work, then I come home and find my thread taken over with mills and tablesaws? ;)

How about this?

All this talk about different forums, and I remembered I was the one solely responsible for the creation of the hand tool forum. This post started it all, right after this forum, suddenly, there was a hand tool forum, coincidental? I think not.

Okay, fine. Maybe not solely responsible.

NAN, jest aside, I think you might be right! I get a kick out of the fact that Handplanes of your Dreams is in the powertool section, lol. It predated your hand tool forum;)
