Default newbie here

hi all,

been reading the forums for over a year now, so finally decided to be a little more active here. because of my young family, it's more thinking and fantasizing about next projects (and machines :-) ) than actually starting/buying them. but hey, I'm not in a hurry, so all in time :-)

Welcome to the community Paul...

Its quite often surprising just how much can be accomplished with very little in the way of resources.

Sounds exactly like me when i was a young dad. Gradually acquired a few tools, a few of which I still have 40 years later, doing home improvement projects to learn a few things. Today I'd probably add to that searching for tools people don't want or know the value of at sales. I just recently got rid of my first Skill saw (completely worn out), but I've had my 16 oz hammer since I was 20, and still love using it. I'm a grandpa now with more money than time and just gave away my old table saw and sliding compound miter saw to my son in law. So make friends with old guys with tools. Let them mentor and teach you, you may be in for a pleasant surprise. We old guys like to help really interested younger people any way we can--its a natural, pass it on thing. BTW, Netherlands is my favorite destination and I try to set up a lecture there every few years so I can visit at least partly on Uncle Sam.
