Now the rest of you guys here have an inkling of why I started the

Good news. I see our friend DE is still with us! I'll bet you enjoyed
seeing his pictures. Did you see the pictures he's posted. (I liked
your plywood printer stand too. ) Wow, I hope he gets to keep the router
bits! He's always up to such interesting stuff in the shop. Isn't he.
Now you can ask him those questions you've been having? I hope he
doesn't get shy again. I'm not sure but I think somebody said something
snarky to him. Would you know anything about it Dave? I'm sure it was
just a maturity mistake.
Sometimes good people slip and do things they regret later. There isn't
a man among us who hasn't made a mistake. It's sad but it happens. I'm
sure we both agree whoever it was, is sorry and feels bad about it. In a
sense, whoever it was, did something worse to himself. I think it's
important to teach children that they will slip and fall but it is how
they recover from it later that is important. And not let it define who
they become, or to limit their growth.
After-all, we are what we do.
I wouldn't want to spoil your fun by revealing your identity...
too bad for you I'm not biting.
keep trying though; you are mildly entertaining, if not somewhat
Say Dave, care to regale us with the technical term for the
item the man is wanting a pattern for? Just remember, the
term can't have "thingie" in it.

Thanks..........to the guys who gave me a freindly response.
Some responded to the fact that I should do a search myself.........well I
did that before putting the question on the group. I didn't like anything I
saw...........every site wanted to sell me something and I was just looking
for something different than the pattern I have from my Delta unisaw manual.
I thought this is what the group was for. If I can't use it for that I will
just unsubscribe. Personally, I think it is people like Rod who should
unsubscribe or just read and keep the fingers off the keyboard. There is
many times I read threads on newsgroups and would like to answer the way he
did but I just keep it to myself. Again.................thankyou to the
people who responded in a helpful manner. Regards. -Guy
It's not the question but how you ask it. If you had stated that you did a
search and couldn't find anything you probably wouldn't have not have gotten
the responses you did. Next time give a little more background to your
And, you also didn't say that, so how is anyone to know?
* I didn't know I had to write a book before asking a question just to
explain why I am asking the question.
Musta been using the wrong search words then. Did you try changing
your search phrase?
* Yes, maybe I was using the wrong search words. I am not an expert on
browsing the web and I don't want to be because I would never get anything
I thought this is what the group was for.
I beg your pardon?
* So what are newsgroups for if you can't ask questions?
If I can't use it for that I will just unsubscribe.
You didn't "subscribe" in the first place.

Personally, I think it is people like Rod who should unsubscribe or just

Not really. I had the same thought. Probably a lot of others did
too. After all, you didn't bother to say you had already looked, or any
details. Lack of details, that'll get you every time.

Guess that pretty well include everyone then. Including Rod.
And, why in Hell do you put all thos periods in your sentences?

should write a book before asking a question to explain why I am asking the

too much to the point for my liking (and yours).
Everyone has different ideas about what's comfortable/safe, and that might
well change with the task. I have made many different styles down through
the years and settled on one that is comfortable for most rips (picture on
the website below, Fixtures and Jigs page ... just one look at it will allow
you to copy it, and be my guest.) YMMV.
