No, but since California has decided to become the "greenest" state in the union, the use of electricity for discretionary purposes has become politically incorrect. Being a totally politically correct person, that's my current excuse the reason I have held off in hooking up my machines.

Since you live in a different country I'm never quite sure how close to true some of those things actually are. Just like not being allowed to use your garden hose in the driveway to wash your car... Many towns around here don't even meter (or care) how much water is used. Leaky pipes & faucets go forever without repairs.
We do recycle the water though, we are using the same old water that has been around millions of years -- just think how many times it's been re-used.

As strange as it sometimes sounds, nearly everything I have said about my state is absolutely true.

And who what it may have been run through.

Exactly, I'm pretty sure I brushed my teeth with Julius Caesar this morning & rinsed with Abe Lincoln.

Anyone went to college for woodworking?

Another book worth reading: Amazon.com: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values (P.S.) (9780061673733): Robert M. Pirsig: Books
Ron,

I have read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance three times and I always keep a couple of copies around to hand out. I love that book.

Fred

Ron,

Last year Konrad actually made a Badger plane and it was absolutely gorgeous. It was also on the front page of one of Lee Valleys monthly newsletter. Apparently it was a bear to make but wow what a cool looking plane.
