Has anyone heard from Horizontal Mike? It is just not the same around here. He added something to the flavor of the site…I just can’t put my finger on it.

I think he’s a good guy at heart, but he had a knack for getting into scrapes with folks. I guess he either got kicked out, or just decided to take his ball and go home.

I had interesting exchange of PM with Mike but then he became “all weird”.
I sent him one or two messages asking him to stop but he never replied.

I dont’ know him and he has not offended me directly, but i have seen some of his ‘not so nice posts’ and ‘badgering’.

Maybe he is eternally resting in a horizontal posistion? (sorry, could not resist that one)

I agree with you on the flavour part though some times it was cringe worthy as he beat that dead horse into submission again and again.
I rather liked Mike, a true contrarian and defender of the faith, just wished he could have reined it in a little.

I have a TW 3/4in 3TPI on my 14in Rikon and I love it. To be honest, I use the BS mostly for resawing and have found that moving from 1/2in to 3/4in was noticably an improvement and made it easier to maintain a straight cut line.
