Today the forum spell check didn't work, having had that happen in the past, I knew how to fix it. If there are members out there who don't know how to set it, right click on a new post and a window opens, one option is "spell check" click on this and it becomes obvious what to click.

There are a number of words and alternate spellings it doesn't recognize.

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.

Thanks, I had no idea there was a spell check. I'm pretty good, but sometimes the keyboard doesn't cooperate.

I use Grammarly it's free and does a lot more than help you with spelling.

"Caul" is one of them not recognized.

As an aside for Harry- Met a fellow/chap from England several years ago. I asked if he spoke English. He straightened up and replied, "Yes, and propah English, too."
Aussies and Americans are two cultures separated by a common language.

Collet and jointer are two more. And it recognizes band and saw but not bandsaw.

I am reasonably competent in several dialects:
British English (my birth language)
Canadian English
American English (standard)
American English (Southern) [but not Texan or Southern Californian]

Occasionally I can even understand my wife

But many young people today have me totally confused. I don't think I have any hope of understanding them!
