Hi all I originally sign up in 2012 but due to computer problems which lead to me forgetting some of the sites I had in my bookmarks.

Anyway a little about me I have been woodworking as a hobby since about 2002 shortly after having 4 major heart attacks so did not get back into it for a couple of years which I found as a very good therapy.
I mainly make toys and do quite a bit of wood-turning followed by scroll-work and carving.
I mainly use routers for making toys and find them top of the go to tool for that part of my hobby.

I am sure that there will be questions that I will need answering. I have made a few jigs to use with the routers that I own which at present stands about 5 routers.

I have made a shelf hole jig, circle jigs of various sizes and a skid type jig for flattening the odd piece of wood which will not go onto my surface planer or fit into my thicknesser.

Hi Bob yes I do have a sense of humour I think you need one. I see you are from sunny Cyprus, I use to live at Polemidia and went to school at Episkopi, had some great times and still have some great memories from there.

Hey, Derek; welcome back!
Toy pictures, please. :)

(pics from your own hardrive will upload no problem, it's just stuff from the 'net you need to have posted 10 times previously for.)

Welcome back to the forum Derek . Sorry to hear about your heart issues . I'm a moron and never dealt with my A-fib soon enough , and so we have a little perminant issue now called low ejection fraction . That's why I'm not saving for the future , just going to have fun buying tools till I keel over :D
