Smitty I think you mean quiet and not quite but that still might not help with the search function as quiet is a pretty common word so there may be so many hits as to make it useless. If you have a idea of who posted in the thread you can go to their personal profile page by clicking on their user name. On that page there is a menu bar that has the word "Statistics" on it. When you click on that one of the options that comes up is to see all the posts that that person has made and also which threads they started. It will show those and the title of the thread. That might be enough to find it as the thread is likely to be something about shop vacs.
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.
