Then I could call myself Chairman of the Board.

Re: What Really Happens on a Fine Woodworking Photo Shoot

Wonderful! I absolutely Love Mandolin & BlueGrass music. I have been threatening to learn to play for several years, & even bought a mandolin a couple of years ago. Maybe now that I'm retired I will find the time.
I have a friend living out in the hills here in Oregon who is "also a hell of a good mandolin player." And he is also a talented woodworker, cabinet maker and builds Beautiful mandolins & other string instruments. His instruments not only sound great; they are works of art & beautiful to look at. I'm going to pass this article on to him. I know he will appreciate it.

Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

This makes me want to pu.., throw up!
I agree with a lot of what has already been said. What ever happened to personal responsibility? Oh, I know the legal industry helped stupid people make money from their own carelessness and the rest of us pay for it. Maybe everything we touch should be covered in bubble wrap and we should be required to wear head to toe chain mail. I have been working with power tools both in production shops and on my own for over 50 years and still have all my body parts intact. I have no intention to put this device on my old Powermatic saw. I think I will just continue paying attention to what I'm doing when the blade is running and if I hurt myself, will take responsibility: What a concept.
What really burns me is that we are all paying big bucks for this idiocy in everything we buy. Friends shouldn't let their dumb Friends use power tools.
