Yep, I have one of, if not the last thing he built on his CNC, it is a
proud addition to my kitchen and dang handy too. He was too ill at the
time to come out and install it himself and just sent it by courier, I
installed it with a bit of his advise.
A very generous and funny man that is missed.
Some folks you just don't need to meet face to face to feel like you
both knew them, and, at the same time, knowing that you'd just met a
friend for life ... no matter how short that turned out to be. Robatoy
was definitely one of those individuals.
A year or so before Rob passed away, -MIKE- Radcliffe sent Robatoy,
Steve Turner and I a special beer, via snail mail, and after delivery,
arranged a Google video Hangout for us to meet and drink a toast.
One of those cool things the internet makes possible (for the
non-Luddites amongst us, that is <g,d&r> ). Will always be appreciative
to -MIKE- for recognizing that, and making it happen.
Rob was ill at the time, but you would not have known it, as he sat in
his robe, with his pup on his lap, and regaled us with his unique sense
of humor, and Angela joined in for a bit as well.
We talked about expanding it, just never got around to it. Damned shame
that is, for it indeed left a lasting memory of special friends, with a
common interest, whom you may never actually meet in person.
Yep, I agree totally, it is just a small shelf made from cutoffs from
his counter materials, it sits above the oven with veggie oil, olive
oil, vinegar bottles, a mortar/pestle, salt and pepper and a timer, all
so handy to have at immediate reach when cooking. He lived about three
hours away, the timing never worked out to actually meet.
He wanted some pictures after I had it up on the wall, apparently some
had seen it and were interested in one. I think it was a one off though
as he unfortunately passed several months after I got it.
He just recommended PL7000 to attach it to the tile and it has been rock
solid and not having to dive into the cupboards to find that stuff is so
handy when cooking. I just spread the adhesive on the back, propped the
shelf on some cans of kernel corn on the back of the stove, pushed it
against the wall and waited a few hours.
Point of pedantry: Of the trio of words for that idea (flammable,
inflammable and non-flammable), only the last one refers to things that
Why three (or even four if you count non-inflammable) terms for a binary
concept? Who knows.
The term flammable was just recently devised to avoid confusion
amongst the public.

Some people educated by the new methods were confusing non- for in-.
And just as a follow up, some of us here lovingly blame him for our
Festool addiction. I think before Festool was on the radar for many of
us he pointed me towards a German video showing this amazing brand new
European tool called a Domino. And he could not say enough about the
Rotex. Good advice and direction from a great guy!
And don't get me started on his view of KetcUP. LOL
