How do I dis-enroll from this "forum"?

I find very little of interest to me here.

I seem to have 1 private message, but I can't seem to be able to read it.

Nothing else seems to work as I would expect it to.

I regret you feel that way ED. This is the best forum I have been a part of.

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.

Edward, if you'd like some help, here's my number-call me. 248-701-4828 (I'm in Michigan)
I'd hate to see you leave over technical difficulties.

Edward, if you have any interest at all don't give up so quickly. I'm quite a new member myself and initially I was frustrated in trying to navigate the site. I quietly blamed this "dumb" site because I couldn't seem to make sense of anything. I engaged my daughter, being computer literate as all young people are, and in no time she was showing me things I didn't know existed. I've since become more capable and addicted. With the wealth of knowledge available from a lot of the members, to name a few, Cherryville Chuck in B.C., Otis in Georgia, Harry in Australia, and Mike in The "D" (Detroit), I feel I could learn forever. This guy, Mike, is a guy that someday I'd like to meet. He's just down the road aways from me. He has shed light on so many things for me. Barb (out of this world ) is a relative newbie as well and has provided a lot of interest when following her exploits, from new shop to new projects.
Don't let the navigation problems get in the way, Edward. Get a young kid to show you the way. With them it's instinctive. You'll be engaged in no time. There is so very much in this forum.
I should say...this is not a paid testimonial.(lol) It's heartfelt, these people are great.

Thomas, Thank you for the compliment. I hope to be helpful. This is, as you pointed-out; awkward for some at first - but very natural for others. I still do not know how to use our DVD Player - but most of my grandkids can use it without a blink.

As an inventor, I can understand where Ed is "coming from" - I've been in on inventing and developing many new products and very little can rip-your-heart-out like having an idea stolen. Documentation is very critical when one invents something and secrecy is also of utmost importance. Many of my patents are now expired and are considered public domain. This is just a simple fact of life - I didn't make the rules, I just follow them. My invention of the Pocket Form Isolator from 1989 was granted a patent in 1993 that expired in 2010. I could sit around and suck my thumb and be mad (as some of my employees have done), but rather I embrace the opportunity to have competition - because I have a highly refined product line and competition will simply help raise awareness of my technology. I have the ultimate in confidence of my product line and personnel. My employees are paid dearly and there is no way they would ever leave me.
I treat them way above fairly and they know it. "Bending-over backwards" doesn't even approach what I do for my coworkers!

Personally, I do not know who invented dovetail jigs and/or parts critical to them - I will say though that there are thousands of people out there that love to make false claims of "who did what first". There were times during my patent's enforceability that people or companies tried to copy my product - but what they didn't know is that I "have eyes" in a lot of places! Also, those who have tried those rare BRAND X versions - quickly realized they had found an improperly designed product and using it made fools of them.

Eventually, I will have some good competition - but for now; I am simply competing with methods that are sometimes 95-110 years old. Have any of you ever noticed that every grocery store has a sign that says, "BEST MEAT IN TOWN". Somebody is lying.

Dave patented his jig: in the 70's. It also appears he was the first one to put a bearing on the shaft of a router bit, thus inventing the pattern bit. I say appears because I can't find proof, but I also can't find any earlier reference to pattern bits.

I've been making sawdust since I was old enough to use a saw - around age 5 or 6. I am now 73, and spent my "career" in data processing: designing systems and then writing the programs to implement the designs. I know a crappy design when I see one.

Good bye.

I watch how several people have offered to help you, as you said you're 73 which means you know all there is to know ,one thing that I know you got a crappy attitude and far as I'm concerned I hope when you say goodbye you mean it and stay gone
To are moderators please remove this A.............

Cya. Here's your hat, what's your hurry? Hey, don't let the door hit you in the @$$ on your way out the door....

Don't offer solutions or constructive criticism, just come in and crap all over everything.. makes PERFECT sense to me.

Uh, Ed? You will have to excuse me here... I have to go and read my private messages. Yes, the ones that I, with my total lack of IT training, have NO PROBLEM reading.
