These kind of remarks have no place on the Forum. That is a personal opinion. I think whoever monitors these comments is failing in there responsibility to monitor. I know this may be controversial on my part. I do not mean to demean or insult anyone. I truly believe there is no place for this on public forums or where many people read to enhance and learn.
Iím pretty sure Rick meant that in gest. If Roxanne or Barb or any other of our female members felt offended by Ricks statement then I might remove it. But Iím positive that the remark was made light heartedly. Roxanne or Barb would probably come back with their own gaffs toward Rick. Weíve fallen victim to political correctness lately which in my opinion is an assault on free speech. If it were truly hateful and spiteful or truly demeaning then yes I would have done something about it.

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.

Well put, Rick! We're being turned into Monks, having taken vows of silence.

When I first saw the picture, I cringed as well. Nearly all the safety issues would be solved if the operator of the jointer simply used pushed blocks. That would get rid of the need of gloves to avoid splinters, keep fingers from overhanging the board, and would raise her head further away to minimize the hair risk. However, the hair should be tied back as an added safety measure. Also, I noticed there was no guard on the jointer, which that in itself is a major hazard.

As a note, I don't believe that this picture was posed for this particular article, as it is actually a stock photo that the rights for use can be purchased from shutter stock, though they have the machine wrongly captioned as a sander. This is in regards to the thought that she was using the jointer as an infeed table for the router table, which I don't believe to be the case.

Oooo, nice save Rick. But you should substitute 'ladies' for 'guys'.

Yeah, and if they weren't born a male, I'm not going fishing with them. And if they weren't born female, I'm not dating them.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

You have the spelling wrong. Should be spelled Rick. Hehehe

What I SHOULD have said is: If they weren't born a male, and stayed a male, I'm not going fishing with them. And: If they weren't born a female, and stayed a female, I'm not going to date them.

I make exceptions on dating, if a female, who was born a female, has to shave.

I agree with you a 110% Tom. My wife and I have come to an agreement. I make the big decisions, she makes the little decisions. She decides things like where we live, who our friends are what we wear, what we eat, where we travel, etc. You know, the small stuff. I, on the other hand, make the big decisions, like what do we have to do to achieve world peace, how do we fix the environment, what foreign countries are our friends and which ones are our enemies. You know, the big decisions. Funny thing, her decisions seem to work out well, mine ... not so much.

Barry; to be fair, there's a lot of dubious advice out there. If one followed all of it one would either be maimed or get nothing accomplished.
If her supervisor told her when she started, that the hair was just great, gloves would keep her hands from getting all red and irritated, and that long sleeves would keep the chips out of her uh, more sensitive regions, well then...
Just sayin'; there's "stupid" and then there's misinformed.
Either way, yes to your points.
