    Wonderful! I hadn't seen the interview but enjoyed it greatly.

    great to hear from you George... always enjoy your posts...
    seems many of us can go through these loss of interest periods...
    the motivation factor is a mystery in life, why some have it so strong, some it comes and goes, some loose it forever, how to get it back, what causes it, etc.
    not a ww topic, but certainly a mystery@!

    Glad to hear from you George! When reading your posts I always felt that I was hearing from the background/wisdom of so much "hands on experience". Always made the read much more interesting. Drop back in on occasion as we need your voice.

    George, good to hear from you. When last here i think you were just getting ready for or over knee replacement surgery. Hope you got your dancing shoes on again. Like others here have already stated, your contributions here were always enlightening and your craftsmanship second to none.

    I have missed your presence. Indeed, i had started to wonder if perhaps you had grown tired of the nonsense or been chased away like some of the other guys that seem to have disappeared, like Lataxe, David Weaver, Kent Bathurst, Stan Covington, Martin Wasner, Patrick Walsh, etc.

    If you are looking for interesting threads that took place while you were gone, i think the machinist and craftsman in you will like anything by Brian Holcombe, particularly his Maka 6 restoration and the stops, fence, etc he made for it. Ditto his stuff for the Omga miter saw.

    Hope you stick around. Best, Patrick

    Visit more often if you can, your expertise is always appreciated here.
    What Keith said.

    I ALWAYS read your posts - irrespective of the topic. Glad that you're doing well.

    Great to hear from you George. I understand about the interest level rising and falling, and no push on you to jump back in if it is not the time, but I think you can see that you have many, many friends that are glad to just hear you say hello. So hello back to you and the best of wishes for you and yours.

    I was looking into your well being a couple of weeks ago George! Great to hear that you are alive and somehow existing without a virtual presence! I hope that you are still tackling interesting projects that give you satisfaction. To add to my Nichols I now have manual and CNC Bridgeports, life is busy but good! Hope to hear more from you.
