Default What Keeps You Coming Back To RouterForums.com?


Can you tell me what keeps you coming back to RouterForums.com? Is it that you have ongoing projects? Is it friendships you have developed here or that you like helping others with their work challenges? Something else altogether?

Is it my sunny disposition?

What made you come back after you visited the first time?

The word games! LOL

I am new to the CNC world and this is one of the first forums I found and there are some great people here and very knowledgeable people. I have gotten great advise and I have learned a lot so far. Hoping to learn as much as I can so I can give back to others here

It's part of my daily, and sometimes hourly routine. I regularly participate in several forums and Router Forums is one of my main sources of enjoyment. I like the interaction with the regular folks, welcoming new folks, seeing new projects, sharing ideas and projects of my own, even sharing mistakes either for a teaching tool or to laugh at myself and give others the chance to do the same.

Well, all that AND your sunny disposition!

A lot of experienced, wise, woodworkers here, that are very free with help and advice. (I would be a greenhorn, and not one of them LOL). Usually fun conversations, friendly people, and NOT a lot of ego problems. (Not true of all forums).

When I first joined it was for the knowledge and learning , but now it’s mostly for the people and the projects .
I suspect the knowledge combined here is as good as you’ll ever find , and I’m not just referring to wood working and routers .
Seeing as the age here is a little bit on the mature side , they’ve been there done it , and have great life experience and advice .
I consider the members here my family , and I’m lucky to have you guys, as no one else loves me lol

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

There are many reasons. The friendships I've made, the help I've received, (and tried to give to those who asked) it's the fun of the conversations, seeing what others have created, and probably one of the biggest:

The anticipation of waiting to hear that Rick finally DID insulate his garage!!!

(Love ya, Rick!!)

As long as you don't ask for a kiss.
