  • 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!

      I'm with Bob.

      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..........

                  Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
                  a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
                  Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

                  They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

                  Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

                  Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

                  I found this information on fuses in general.

                  Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
