Thank you for the warm welcome, I appreciate that
... I do have a few questions...
I receive all the messages to the Forum along with some great pictures. Some of these messages are from beginners like me and I don't know how to find the answers they get. Is there an icon to click on I'm missing?
Also, when I have a question, how do I know someone has answered? and if so, how do I view them? One more thing, I have a friend coming over to show me how to begin using my Porter Cable router. He isn't a fan of router tables as he chooses to clamp a router fence w/opening for the blade and adjusts the fence to where he wants the cut to be, then runs the material through by hand. I also have a big interest in inlay work. I.E. making my own patterns, cutting them out and routing out the material to inlay it into. Someone told me I would have better control over my work by using a trim router instead of the larger Porter Cable. I do have a trim router from Harbor Freight, (a cheapie,) in which I use for working on bird houses, (my "wood thearapy" thingie.)
... Anyway, I'm also told that there are places to go to on line where I can watch beginner classes for free. Hmm, most I've found want to sell me a dvd, cd, or a book...
Sorry I'm laying all this on you, but you said if I needed help to ask : ) ... Thank you in advance.
