Recently I posted an off topic forum asking if anybody could offer any help on where I could source a wheel rim for my Kublta RTV (which incidentally is in Australia) The forum can be seen here

http://lumberjocks.com/topics/268761

One of my Buddies here on Lumberjocks by the handle name of Recycle1943 responded to my ask for help, his profile can be seen here.

Now we call people buddies as we add people to our profile lists, people that we like or have things in common with, like their projects etc, but rarely do we meet in person or even speak to in person.

Anyways moving forward, Recycle1943 replied to my post for help, Now, not only did he offer to help me with the wheel rim , he actually sourced it for me ,then he bought and paid for it, he had it delivered to his place for proper packaging then on sent it to New York for me to pick up on a work trip. Yes its true. And to Dick (Recycle1943) I thank you, you are a true Gentleman.

Further to Dicks kindness he kindly placed one of his superbly crafted bowls in the package as a gift for my wife, incidentally and as you know Dick the bowl fit ever so snug inside the wheel rim and made it to Hong Kong unscathed..

So, in a changed world of internet and sites like lumberjocks here where people with common interests meet, friendships are made. Your act of kindness was superb Dick and once again thank you.

Here is a pic of the wheel rim and bowl being unpacked in Hong Kong

For those that dont know, although most should know, Recycles bowls can further be seen here

Thanks for the kind words Anthony. Finding your wheel and getting it to you was a fun thing to do and I totally enjoyed doing it.
The bonus for me is seeing that your wife is putting the bowl to good use.

Your post further reminds my of the fact that there are some good folks in the world, and it is so kind of you to properly thank those who are willing to go a step beyond.

My best friends in this world have come from this site. They are my family. Part of the reason I relocated to a new home 1650 miles from my previous home was because of people I met here. For those who use this site for it’s intended use for socialization reap the rewards. This is a wonderful place.
