Photo or no photo, the points raised in the text of the article are within reason.

Just out of curiosity. I do occasionally see things from the forum on facebook. Does everything that gets posted here show up on facebook, or only the posts with pictures ?


Thanks...Gary

Gary - I'm not totally sure how they do it, but what I have seen on Facebook are articles such as the one I referred to in my original post. I've also seen some posts like "what project are you currently working on?", "How did you choose a dust collector", as well as specific posts/threads started by some of the forum members. A couple of examples are my post regarding the Record 52 1/2P vise restoration, "guide bushings or bearing guided". So, to answer your question, it's a mix of things, but not everything that gets posted to the forum shows up on Facebook.

That was what I thought. So I guess if you only follow the forum on Facebook, you would miss much of the content.

Correct - posts on Facebook are sparse but have picked up a bit. I was a member of the forum before I followed them on Facebook. I would think that if anyone is interested in routers, or woodworking in general and follows this forum on Facebook, they would have joined the forum eventually.

Cricket was strongly promoting for us to share or like or follow or whatever makes the forum owners more money as I think that enough Facebook followers make the poster cash based on participation? Maybe someone more knowledgeable about it can verify that. Anyway she gave up after a while as most of us older types aren’t interested in the FB page.

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.

Cherryville - there are 1717 people that "like" RouterForums on Facebook and there are 1714 people that "follow" Routerforums on FB, meaning that they receive the posts in their FB feeds.

I have not login to Router Forum for more than 15 years until I found on Google last week that there is a thread started 9 years ago 8th May 2009 called "Looking for Reuel'. Someone wanted me to help.

I am only here to help if I can and I sense that some people may think that I am trying to take over their domain and try to shut me up and so I can get aggressive.

Reason I stayed away was because someone then called me a troll just because I was arguing that IMHO the Imperial system is superior to the metric system for WOODWORKING.
Reuel first off I also have to disagree with your stance on safety. Her hair is hanging a bit low, she has gloves on, and no push locks which would get her hands away from the blades. If you want to work that way itís up to you but itís much harder to do woodworking if you are missing fingers or eyes. I remember reading about a young girl whip was enrolled in an industrial arts program at a college and she had gone into the shop to work on a project after hours. She was found the next morning with her hair caught in a lathe and neck broken. So just how careful is careful enough? I worked as a safety admin for the British Columbia Ministry of Forests for 8 years supervising logging crews. I used to tell the guys in the crews that you can skirt this or that safety rule and your chances of not getting hurt are maybe 1 in 100,000 to one in a million. But when when you add up all the things you skirt safety on your odds of gettting hurt by one of them might drop to a one in 5 or 10,000 chance and those arenít good odds.

Your comments about being trolled are interesting. It seems that someone didnít agree with your belief that imperial is superior to metric in woodworking. If you had stayed around youíd have seen that Harry Sinclairís thread about ďThe stupidity of imperial measurement ď is one of the longest running threads in forum history. If there was a lot of discussion for both sides but I donít know if anyone really took it personally and took a 15 year hiatus because of it. I just posted the comment on another thread that ďGood tools arenít cheap and cheap tools arenít goodĒ and you promptly posted a cheap bandsaw that you thought didnít fit that statement. I didnít take it personally. Iím entitled to my opinion and you yours. Itís part of what makes the forum what it is. Different viewpoints. Sometimes all viewpoints have value. In any case, you canít be confrontational with those who donít support the same view as you. There are about 50 lifetimes of woodworking experience on the forum active at the moment. Some with similar experiences and others different. Itís the strength of the forum.

Saw this on another forum, so go ahead and let your freak flag fly.... I will call 911 for you. Wonder if it hurt. Tie up the hair, ditch the gloves and long sleeves, stand up straight and use push blocks.
