    Hey Woody,
    Is that the same sweatshirt you tried to sell me for $20?!!

    GREAT job at the Toy Workshop, guys! You made it hard for me to talk, but you kept busy and the crowds happy! Nice work.

    Seriously, I am pretty sure this is a typical jointer with a round head. I could inquire but only if there is interest.

    Don’t be silly, Mike. It’s obvious. The round cutter head helped make the board flat. The square heads made the board round. Running the rounded board repeatedly over the bed was very dangerous. How could you not realize that?

    Thanks, guys. I had a few sets of planer blades sharpened – $.70/inch. Seems a bit high but it is what it is. I haven’t had the need to replace them yet so I can’t tell how a good (or poor) a job he did.
    The owner/operator did mention he is expecting a new saw sharpener this week or next. He tells me blades should be done quicker and better than before. We’ll see.

    I agree, Mike. Charlie is one of those Go-To guys in the club. His experience is unparalleled. He makes it look so simple – and doesn’t get any dust from paper towels! Now that’s a pro.

    Sorry I missed it. But I guess that means I would have had to hang around with all those “scroll saw” people. It would have been worth it, I’m sure.

    Hey Roger,
    I would really hate to see that go up in smoke. That would be a shame. Unfortunately, I am unavailable all this week and Amityville is not a quick run from Bohemia. But if it is still available when I have the opportunity, I will take you up on that. But first come, first served. Someone should take advantage and save this lumber from a horrible fate.

    Good point, Jim, but turners could hold meetings without a TV but it will be difficult without a lathe. The Historical Society is, so far, firm about not keeping the lathe at the barn. Soooo … either keep the meetings at the barn but lose the lathe or relocate with the lathe and forego the TV. However, I think it is far easier to acquire a TV than a substitute for a lathe. Keep in mind that nothing has been set in stone as of yet. And we are still looking into alternative meeting locations.
