    Search Question

    How do I tell the search engine to search/sort for multiple words - like "brad point bits?" I don't care about "brad" nailers, a sharp "point", or "bits" of trash.

    I've tried commas, dashes, quote marks, &s but have not hit on the right combination yet.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Tom, try using the Google search option that's displayed in the Search drop-down menu. It uses Google to search just the forum posts, and tends to get much better results than the one built into the forum software. I searched for "brad point bits" and got quite a few hits:

    Enclose the phrase for which you want to search (i.e. brad point bits) in quotes and Google will search for that phrase.

    "Brad Point Bits"
    "mortise and tenon"
    "yellow brick road"
    etc.

    Vaughn,

    That's what I was looking for. Another ah-ha moment. I expect many more.

    Thanks,

    Tom
