Sorry to hear of your misfortune, I am retired and don’t know what I would do without my woodworking.

Thank you Smitty I did it professionally for 35 years so I really don’t miss it that much yet but maybe I will try hand woodworking with no power tools outside.

Sorry to hear about your emphysema. I’m 70 and could not possibly imagine not being in my shop every day.
Dust collection is similar to woodworking clamps…you can hever have enough.

Blaine,

Sorry to hear of your health issues.

I don’t know if you seen anything about it but the medical types are making real progress on developing new treatments for lung problems using adult stem cell treatment techniques. The reports I’ve seen are very encouraging. Perhaps there’s some there there for your emphysema…

Good luck and don’t be a stranger.

Herb

Probably the more important issue would be to not be a “light smoker”. But yeah, dust control is important.

Have your say...
