Paul, don't worry about it, just do what I do. Ignore your monthly statements, and when your balances get too high, just file for bankruptcy.

And if anyone asks how you can be so irresponsible, just tell them the devil (aka Beez ) made you do it.

Default hand-powered vs. taily-tools

The discussion of powered versus hand tools -

Jenny enthusiastically encouraged a JMPv2 to take up residence in Paxson for the above-delineated safety reasons, as well as the noise issue (she didn't think of the sawdust...).

So.....who was I to argue?

I bet she'd support you setting one up in, say, San Diego too. You know - just in case...

In talking with Deneb (LN), he mentioned that if I were going to go to all hand tools, I might not want to give up the band saw. I'm thinking he's right.

I keep remembering the small, warm, cozy shop that Jim Krenov had. It was only 12' x 20', but had everything he needed. He had an Inca saw, an Inca jointer, and a General bandsaw. The rest seemed to be only hand work. But at a certain point, there was an "incident" and he was through in the shop. However, he kept at it much longer than most of probably will.
Mike,

As you know I have moved very heavily into hand work but not in a million years would I give up my big iron or other tailed tools. As John mentioned there is absolutely a place for both and I plan on using both for as long as I am able, say until next week.

Fred

Poutyhawl,

Why would Audie want to set up in San Diego? Where are the moose, the bears, the elk and big horn sheep. Heck where are the grayling and the various types of salmon? I think that you are now getting the picture.
