Just letting you know that my father, George Devine, who invented the
Vertilathe, died last Wednesday, March 30th. He enjoyed reading the posts
in this newsgroup and also occasionally posting a message (sometimes
somewhat spammy!) He was 88 and enjoyed woodworking and woodturning (with
his Vertilathe, of course) for many years. He was disappointed when he was
no longer able to work in his workshop due to his declining health. He was
glad to have brought some enjoyment into the lives of those who used his
invention and the projects made using it.
So, woodworkers, continue to enjoy your woodworking projects. My father
delighted in doing so and he was in good company.
