Misrepresentatioin and Trust

 It seems that I am always writing about something of which I should not have to.  The last time it was about the spam appearing here and now it is about something that is just as important.  Important to me as a member of this community but also to each one of you.  It is about integrity or honesty in the things that we do.  It certainly is important in woodworking just as it is in the largest business world that we now live in.  Without it there is nothing to guide us as we build and sell…See More

I saw this tool in operation and after all the years that I have been exposed to the table saw dangers this product impressed me the most.  I think it would be of benifit for all of us to watch this in operation and it is reasonable in price as well.  Much better than any push stick or…

Jay, Thanks for the wonderful comment.  It was a little tedious at times.  But I think that is what makes a project turn out to what a person wants.  Have a good day.  George

Hi Jay, I hope your getting better I sure do miss reading your replies to other peoples posts. I'm going to be launching a web site soon, gonna try to sell some pens on the internet. I'm working on getting an inventory built up. I have about 35 done so far and all my freinds and family think I could sell them online. I have sold a few of them all ready to people I know. The mountain house is keeping pretty busy also. It is a shame there is a couple thousand miles between us, I would think it would be great to sit down and have a beer or two.

Your freind on the east coast, Ray
