Default howdy from the frozen tundra/great white north

Howdy fellow woodpeckers from High Level, Alberta.
Just found this forum and yes I love my Rona brand routers, yep, got two of em, one fixed base and motor is mounted in a Haussman brand (sold by Rona) router table and works great although i did find applying a bit of silicon spray to the adjusting ring needed to be done cause the motor would bind when trying to adjust the bit height, but all is good now.
I am wanting to try my hand at raised panel work, got to get a bit set first i guess, also wanting to get into dovetailing.
Thanks again looking forward to checking out this forum.

Welcome, Gordon :-)

I'm a sign carver myself, and while I have the jigs to make them, I haven't tried the dovetail work. I think that sort of tedious stuff I'll leave to the other half lol

Hi Gord. In in Nampa, just south of Peace River. I used to go through there to Garden River when I was hauling fuel to the Atco gen station out there. Garden River isn't quite out in the middle of nowhere but nowhere is clearly visible from there. Welcome to the forum. Drop me a line if you're coming through this way and I'll pour you a cup of coffee. I'll send you my email and phone number.

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.
