If you’re going to make an inadvertent mistake in a “how to” blog you really have to fess up to it and repair the damage.
My sincere apologies to anyone who has lost sleep over trying to make my integral box hinges http://lumberjocks.com/shipwright/blog/23989 from the inaccurate information given there. It was a mistake in the writing on my part.
To make matters worse a lot of folks have favorited it and to make matters even worse, It was the sentence that was tagged ”this is really important”

I have corrected it so if you had trouble before, please try again.

If you haven’t tried it yet, I deny all of the above, the info is fine :-)

I see nothing wrong with your method. I plan on trying your hinges on a box soon. And we can both guess what the lid will have on it. :) I can’t wait.

Class act… ‘fessing up and all…

Better to repair the boo-boo than to let it bleed, right?

I’m tempted to claim, “so THAT’S why mine aren’t coming out!”. In reality, I read it several times, missed any mistakes, and declared it too challenging for my skill level. I doubt that anyone requires an apology but it’s sure gentlemanly of you to offer one. My fiance’ was reviewing the Federal Govt’s disaster response publication and found a handful of typo’s and syntax errors. If this can get through 1000 Federal Govt workers, your error shouldn’t cause too much alarm;)

I’m sure glad I, too, decided it was too hard to try. :-)

Al: 1,000 federal employees can’t be wrong, so it must be your girlfriend.

OH GREAT!!! NOW you tell us?! Uh . . . what’s an integral hinge, anyway? ;)

I have to agree with Mr. Woodworker. You wouldn’t know 99.9% of us if you bumped into us on the street and you had the chutzpah to admit you made a mistake. Yup, class act.

Al: But was it their JOB to find the error or were they doing something else and proofing for spelling and grammar errors don’t fall into their job descriptions? See, everyone is quick to blame the government but they’re just doing their jobs and . . . . . . . . . . . . ‘xcuse me, I need to go take a shower . . .

No apologies are needed from someone who willingly shares knowledge with others, because they found it ! No my friend, no apologies called for. Thank you for what you gave freely. The recipients should thank you for the knowledge that led them (us) off into new directions. We should be capable of some insights on our own ! The clarification is gravy that you graciously provide.

Tesla gave the new directions and backed up to clarify each step and was rewarded by someone else patenting the results.

Class act, my yes , and more.
