So to be clear, if I purchase a product and am really unhappy with it because, well, let's just say, it IS a piece of crap, I am not to point this out to my router friends, they need to spend their own money to find out?

I don't believe I said that, did I?

I commented that we need to treat everyone in a respectful manner.

Thank you very much Cricket.
You are very busy! It is very good you enjoy doing it. I am certain the camping site will become absolutely first rate. While "primitive" camping is now out of the question for me, I would enjoy seeing your site.

Many of these sites might be of interest to member of this forum. Would it make sense to have somewhere on this Forum links to the (nonprofessional) sites?

FYI I also saw your "The other side of the monitor" page. It is awesome.

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
-attributed to Chief Seattle of the Native American Suquamish Tribe
  • Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
  • see MEBCWD's signature line; be certain brain is properly powered up and engaged

A vendor section can be a two way street because vendors can write about their products for all of us to read and we can also write for all to read and let them know our opinions and experiences if we have used them

“Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpiece… because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work. I study each piece to get ideas and details that will evolve in my future creations.

I think it is a great idea, will help me (& a lot of newbies find desired products). Look forward to seeing it.

I was the one who wrote that. Saying something is a piece of crap is non-constructive criticism and tends to be vindictive and it doesn't explain to anyone what issues you had with the product. If you bought something from a vendor that doesn't work to your satisfaction then the proper way to go about it is to explain why it didn't work or the difficulties you had using it or that you weren't able to achieve the level of accuracy you were expecting. That would be constructive criticism and still shows member respect. The vendor might have some suggestions to make it work better or maybe your model is defective. There are a lot of possibilities.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Many router forum members are also members of lumberjocks, myself included.
I've just brought this thread to the attention of a manufacturer of precision router chucks.

Musclechuck and other router related vendors should find it advantageous to participate here. I think they key is to participate and not just advertise on a forum
