Default hello

I'm new to this forum & was pleased to see this section. It is the only one I am aware of & I go to just about every turning/wwking forum out there. Great Idea, whoever thought it up & made space for us

Hi Gal:

It is unfortunate that we have to hide it in a separate section. I would prefer to see it incorporated in the general body of the forum. Many of the suggestions and solutions are proffered by the general population. It is as if the need and the providers are two separate populations. When the general population is aware of a need in this section, we really go to town but it is not often that I see a request for help.

I have also found that solutions found in the "special needs" department have a definite use among the general population. For example, a round router table came out of a "special needs" discussion. I haven't built it yet but when this house is finished, it is high on the "to do" list.

Now, there is something else as well. I've found that we get part way through a discussion on a solution and the participant asking for help "disappears." We get into some pretty detailed discussions when we're trying to work out a solution and it seems that we overwhelm them. That is not our intention but it is necessary to try to "adjust" our hobby to someone with a need for an "adjustment." In our forum there are no handicapped, only craftspeople. I have seen blind men using a router and marvel at their accomplishments. I'm the "handicapped" one and they are the artists.

I would ask then when someone asks for our help that you moderate our discussions so as not to allow us to discourage or intimidate the participant.

Hi Galturner...

There's a lot more "us's" out there than most realize... or many just don't want to let their ego out to admit it. We're woodworkers and most of us have given up our "aerial gymnastic skateboarder" persona long ago. While for some the symptom may be a wheelchair, others of us cannot stand (or sit) for extended periods.. have joints that hurt... or strongly suspect our day is coming... it's good to know what's available for some of us who plan on making sawdust as long as we're able!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!
