  • Digging up old threads

    I figured I'd ask the membership before replying to threads older than 6 months.

    I've seen a few other forums, not woodworking related, where new members are scorned for posting to old threads, many pages deep in any board.

    Anyway, I thought I would be polite, and ask first, if digging up old threads and posting to them , is kosher or not.

    Go for it! In my opinion, that just furthers the knowledge base of the forum!

      Some people have nothing better to do than complain about everything. Feel free to bump an old post to the front of the line. We all might learn something new.

        Well, It just might be right neighborly of you to kinda mention your post is added on to an archived thread.

        Ya see, some of use long winded types, we just might have learned something new since the old thread was active, and we may just be a bit embarrassed by the pontificating we did back then. While we maybe weren't WRONG, we could have been a bit lacking in being correct.

        So if you warn me, Er I mean "us", then "we" can go back and be sure "we" don't contradict a previous post.

              There are times when we old timers...not an age thing.... do not recall where we read something. It will be great to refresh our memories.

                BladeDancer I think you can tell we're a pretty laid back bunch, and bringing up old threads should never be any problem, after all this site is for learning and sharing. And as far as airing out the dirty laundry, Carl, I'm afraid to ask..........

                  I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

                  That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

                  The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                  Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
