    Derek, the real mix of folks is very broad with the majority likely hobbyists. I personally only became "professional" (IE, working for money) recently. Yea, I do have some nice stuff in my shop, but that was because I had the opportunity and means a number of years ago (pre-kids) and knew I wouldn't be able to do the same post-retirement. I actually like the mix of folks who post. There is a lot to learn from everyone...even when a particular tool isn't in the cards for the reader, learning about it can be enriching.

    Whoa. Not only is that thing cool... but you have a ton of spotless space for it. I'm impressed by both.
