    Thanks for the link Gavin and welcome to the forum, but I am on double probation and not allowed to consider new projects until I finish the ones I have.

    Yeah, interesting, ain't it? New member, and his first post is a troll for his own product. I've already reported it. BTW.

    He is a fool. He could have used the classifieds if he had been civil about doing it. Now he has cooked his goose with me.

    Dan your being too nice. The guy did it strickly to get attention to his products, by the rules you should have sent him a PM allowing him the option to move his post, has he responded yet.... I doubt if he will.

    I'm with Rob on this one. I figure he only joined so he could pander his product.

    Maybe I'm just cynical - or maybe Rob and I both spent too much time as Mods...

    jim, from what i've seen of the dvd case, his name is not on it. that, and you have to order it through amazon, not him. it would be as if i were a newbie, and found a really good richard raffan turning dvd, and wanted to share the info, posted it by accident in the wrong area. is it "my" dvd, it is not, i'm only sharing info, and where to get one. am i making money on this, nope.

    how many of us, myself included, have made things for our web sites/upcoming shows and posted them in either the flat or spinny areas? more than a few i'd say, but for myself, if i post something about what i'm making for sale on the site, i'll post how i made it, and what the finished product looks like. i don't say that they're up for grabs, first one first served, but if someone asks, in a pm, or other wise, or simply goes to the site, that's an entirely different thing.

    if he's posting the same thing on other woodworking venues, then he's hawking a product, if not, let's not be too hasty.
