I am asking that this thread get killed. There is so much off topic conversation in it that it’s crazy. To much off topic postings should kill any thread becasue that thread has no real purpose anymore.

Guys, if you want to BS and shoot the shyt, please do it in an area that it’s appropriate.

JMHO…. Flame suit on.

Ken, there are a bunch of us that really enjoy that thread and as whole, we do no harm. As Al said, if it bothers you, don’t go there but please, don’t mess with our enjoyment.

Ken, I agree that the thread is pretty unique in that it has gone on for so long and yes, sometimes we do stray off topic a bit. However, I don’t think a day has gone by when someone hasn’t posted something about hand planes. Those of us who are regulars on the thread have forged some tight friendships along the way and we’ve got to know each other in a way that doesn’t tend to happen in other posts. I for one have learnt an enormous amount about hand planes of all shapes and sizes and most of it, I couldn’t have read in a book.

I agree with Al. If people don’t appreciate it, they don’t have to click on it. There’s room for everyone.

I quit following that thread months ago.

Oddly enough, I have never once had a problem not clicking on it.

I don’t recall seeing you post questions or opinions or answers there, Ken, but I may be mistaken.

I would welcome you to learn something about handplanes there through the process, and if you know more than the rest of us, please come and share…

For some of us who love handplanes, and who are working on purchasing the handplanes of our dreams, it is a welcome place to start when we come to Lumberjocks!

Like every extended conversation, some stray a bit, but do you stop talking?

I have met quite a few people on this thread that I may not have met otherwise, and see no reason to close it down.

Other than you don’t like some of what you say is off topic, what really is the issue?

i’ve never been on any work site in 50+ years
where getting to know and have fun with fellow workers
was not the norm
this isn’t a monestary
where we are all sworn to silence

as inteligent and creative people
we like to share ideas and methods

but getting to know your fellow craftsmen
can lead to many ways to bond

in my shops and job sites
the only rule we had was
‘NO MOMS’
(lest you get a 2×4 upside the head)

don’t like it
don’t click it

simple

Ken, you say the thread is off topic and has no purpose anymore… I was just reading the recent post on there and they are all on the topic of hand planes. In fact if you read the post from today you will actually learn some stuff about the history of wood and metal planes.

Ehhh forget it… Your just looking for attn.

See ya

Hmmmm… wow…. really?

Been there, read some of it. Don’t recall running from the room screaming.

But I’m going there now.

There is a lot of good information in that thread, however, the way is has rambled on and on and far off topic, makes getting to that useful information next to impossible and/or a useless task. Kind of like having all the words in a dictionary in the first half of the book and all the definitions in the second half of the book and without an index to guide you. My 2-cents…

I think we should ask that THIS thread be killed because it is about wood planes in the non-shop talk forum! There’s so much talk about planes on here it’s crazy!

I love you like a fat guy loves sausages & cheese, but I had to give my head a shake when I saw this one…

Actually I tried using that thread to learn about planes. Unfortunatly it’s so full of other non plane material it got frustrating so I gave up. And that was over SEVERAL attempts and hours. I didn’t just do a quick look and quit.

The only thing I can suggest is try looking at things from a different point of view, Try searching this sight for info on Planes and see how much of it is in that thread and hard to find.

I use forums like this to gain information on the hobby. If friend ships form great but 9000 posts???? seriously that’s allot of fluff. Try reading that thread…. From the begining to now… You better have some spare time on your hands. Because there is allot of wasted space in it.

However I see allot of you don’t get the idea of what I am talking about and care to take this to a level it wasn’t meant to go. Have a nice day.
