Default Following orders...

Which stated to create an introduction post. So this is it.

After having trouble finding a part number to a specific Makita router part, I started doing image searches of the Makita router model number, and simply appended the search terms with +forums, in order to weed out many (but one can never eliminate all) of the advertised and sponsored search results.

One of the images in the image search results (posted by honored RouterForums member @harrysin ) led me to join the router forums so that I could reach out to harrysin and ask him a question about his photo.

Of course, in accordance with the forum rules, I'll have to make 10 posts first... before I can send harrysin a private message. Well, make that now 9. But given my inexperience with routers, I'm going to have a hard time coming up with something to worthwhile to say, or even ask, on the forums, so it might take a while.

Anyways, that's how I ended up here.

@RTR - welcome to the forum. A good place to start would be to complete your profile and include a first name, location (at least country). You can also welcome new members by saying hi and respond to other posts to build up your post numbers.

Anyway, Harry is on here regularly and unless your question is personal, you could just ask through the forum and I'm sure he'll respond.

Welcome to the forum! And like Vince said, add your name to your profile so it clears the N/a in the side panel and so we'll know what to call you. Adding your location helps us to help you.

You can show us photos of your shop, tools, projects, ideas, etc. and get to 10 posts pretty quickly. Jump in on some discussions, too.

Welcome to the forum and yes, there are many including, Harry, very well versed on many routers. Just ask your questions and sit back. Posting pictures is easy as well by dragging them just below in the space indicated below the message area.

Hi RTR and welcome. We all prefer a name when we have a conversation so as stated already amend your profile when you have a chance. I'll alert Harry that you would like help and he may give you his personal email but it is easy to get to 10 posts. Herb Stoops has 2 posts going on his home made planes that you could join in on for example. You could be at 10 posts by the end of the day without trying too hard.

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 for the welcome everyone.

As requested, I filled out the name field, but certainly don't object to being referenced by my user name "RTR".

I'll admit that I make that offer somewhat selfishly, because when I read a post on a forum, I tend to remember the author of the post by their USER NAME, not their real name, as their user name is in big bright bold blue print (in the case of this forum, and many other forums owned by Vertical Scope), so that is what catches my eye and what I remember first.

To have to read the fine print and also remember the author's real name, and then remember which real name to associate with which user name... overloads my ram. Under the "do unto others as one would have done unto you" rule, I say, call me by my user name. So much easier!

Hey RTR - you're up to 2 posts already, great. You'll be up to 10 in no time! And if you had responded to each of us individually, you'd be up to 7 - easy, peasy.

And we don't mind calling you RTR, it's better than N/A
