    Michael, you must be a Contributor to post in the Classifieds. A Donate button ($6.00 min) is located in the blue bar above.
    Please help support the Creek.

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

    Hi Michael, sorry to hear about your situation.

    I have sent SMC an email offering to pay the $6 for your contributor fee.

    I hope that you have success selling your tools, and that your situation improves...........Regards, Rod.

    Very nice of you Rod! I would have done the same for a participating member like Michael.

    Wait, is this crowd funding?!

    Nicely done Rod! Indeed, the nicest thing I've ever seen done on a forum.

    Hope Michael comes back and sees the nice gesture from Rod. His last post before this thread was back in April.
    I used to enjoy his posts
    I am not saying go kill all the stupid people......
    I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    Thank you so much Rod. Very kind of you and MUCH appreciated. I am closing down my small one man shop after 2.5 years of blissful stress and woe. There's a fine line between pushing yourself and going non-stop until you succeed and knowing your own strengths and weaknesses. While I certainly didn't have much trouble building and designing projects, it was the day to day operations of running a small business that eroded at my sanity. I am reentering the job market. As of the 28th I will be the Senior Cabinet Maker at a local furniture company.

    It's sad that I have to sell most of my stuff. But I have a wife and three kids to support. Far too many unmet financial needs in my family for me to be prideful and try to stick this out and 'make it work'. I will keep all of my remaining Festool and enough to be dangerous in the realm of side jobs.

    Thank you.

    Mike
    Thanx,
