        Great story. I know the feelings as my Uncle Arthur (arthritis) has come to live with me and my speed and agility is not what it use to be. We do what we can and work around our demons just not as fast.

          Thanks Dave...
          That was very inspiring...
          My Landlord and great old friend of mine inspires me in a similar way. He's beaten cancer twice, and to see how he never quits, (you should see his yard. It's just magnificent), has taught me to keep going no matter what. I have a rather vicious and painful form of Tourette's syndrome, and I've learned that even a small victory is still a victory...

          Thanks again Dave, GREAT story....!!!!!!

            Wonderful story Dave. Thanks for sharing it with us. I know at my age, I am slowed quite a bit, but, I have extra time now, being retired. I do some things very slowly, that I used to do in a short time. I will think about that gentleman when I have any type of work to do. Thanks again.

                Yes Dave, it so true for so many of us that "got older" Our minds are sharp but the parts of our bodies do not work the same as they did in the past. I also used to build furniture, but would not think of lifting those heavy boards again. Perhaps that is the reason I use the scroll and band saw much more than I use the table saw. I am just thankful I am able to do something...so many folks can't even do that!

                    Dave, that was an inspiring story and something we can all expect to encounter as we age. Thank you for sharing that great story.

                      Dave, a truly inspirational story and message. When I usually find limitations, it makes me push harder. However, when they are physical limitations that is not the case, so therefore you make up for it other ways. Once again this forum is ispirational and sends a great message for us all!

                      Thanx for sharing!

                        Life is full of adapting. If we don't, we are left behind. And that is definitely no fun.

                          Dave, here's another thanks for once again reminding us that age and infirmity are only time frames and hurdles, not the end of being able to do things.

                                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
