Try a softball forum sometime. Ouch.

Thumbs up

In my experience, woodworkers are generally pretty nice folks.
Those with routers seem to be especially nice.

Ya, pretty friendly here to be sure, friendly but honest meaning you'll get the straight story not sugar coated.

Amen to Gene's comment! I have noticed the same thing. I would venture to guess that there is a high percentage of people on this forum that are doing router and other woodworking because they enjoy it! I would also further guess that on many other forums, there are participants that would be more concerned about something that they feel they "have to do". I don't think many people would consider HVAC to be an "art form". The volume of members virtually assures me of getting [polite] answers to puzzling situations. An amazing number of people are especially generous with their comments - I think that is attributable, in part; due to the non-competitive attitude! OPG3

I agree with you Gene .Here, in Europe, on french forums, the atmosphere is often colder, tenser but but it is possible to find there quite often very good advice and see great achievements.
Have a nice day

Thanks for you comments, I know that hvac can be rough at times but making saw dust keeps my mind together and thanks papawd for reminding me its time to start making those xmas gifts. I get so tied up in heat and air that I loose track of time.

Default Glad to have found this forum

Glad to see these kinds of comments, especially having just joined the forum. Most forums are so stiff and dry that it's hard to find people that really want to help...most often they reflect a fraternity and it's nearly impossible to be included in the conversation.
