    Hi Bryan, sorry for asking but I can't make out the sense of the abreviation, english is not my mother tongue and I'm not used to all those acronims that you all use. My guess is: S= Susan? W= Wife? M= Most, B= Beloved, O= One??

    Besides this, I like your shop very much, I wish I had half of the machines that are there. Is it a hobbyist shop or are you a pro?


    Thanks for sharing the pics!
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Toni, it's "She Who Must Be Obeyed". Often it's the same person as LOML, or "Love of My Life", depending on the circumstances.

    Here's a list of many of the abbreviations and acronyms you'll see around the forum:

    Thanks Vaughn!

    I didn't make any target, I hope I'm a better woodworker than a guesser.

    I have to start writing down and memorize all these things, otherwise I might get into trouble someday.

    Just remembered, She was Ayesha, great novel Ryder Hadgard ( if I remember well), I read it when I was 14 or so, later I saw Ursula Andress' movie.

    Now I've learned something. I never knew the term had a literary origin.

    Hobbyist but I do make items for others to help finance my lust for tools!
    I guess you could say I am a Pro Hobbyist! I am now retired with a part time job about 25 hrs a week so it leaves me some time to play!
    Swmbo says as long as I can pay for what I buy, I can have any tool I want. No begging or whining, to get a new tool at our house!
    It's taken me 27 years to get to where I am with tools in my shop. A lot of upgrades! I have a pic of my shop from about 1985 and another about 1989 after I started my pro hobby work in 1987!

    This is why this forum is so good I learn new things each time I log in

    Bryan: thanks for the explanation, a Pro -hobbyist and eventually a PRO-PRO is something that is on my mind, your SWMBO (now I know what it means) must be very caring and loving person send my greetings to her.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    wow, I never knew of 'She' either. I always thought it was old Rumpole of the Bailey that coined that phrase, since that was the first place I heard it (books on tape back when I was driving semi)

    Well Bryan, I can only dream about such a shop, for me it's looks more a machine shop, but I would like it to play in your shop, at least, if you permit me to do so, only Canada is sooooo far away, so I think bad luck for me.

    TSS

    I noticed the TSS how do you like it? I am currently considering a new saw because my Unisaw is needed on a job site for several weeks. I am considering a slider TSS,Minimax, Felder

    I have only had it for a few weeks so I haven't put much wood through it, or even a chance to try the scoring blades. The slider rolls easily, approx 50" capacity in front of the blade, but that too has not been used. Size wise I like it, as it's not much bigger than the Unisaw, about 5" deeper. The large base makes the saw very stable, along with the 760 pound weight. When I had the Unisaw and an Excalibur 60" slider, it took up a lot of room to the left of the saw. I gained back a lot of floor space. I was dreaming of a slider but my garage is too small. After seeing a buddys new scmi 10 ft slider, there's no way I could fit something like that in. That 10 ft slider is huge compared to my old Unisaw.
