    A Public THANK YOU!

    There has been some discussion on here about the type of people that are on this forum. I for one have received lots of help and learned a lot since I joined. I have made some real friends also. To which, this is my public THANK YOU. As some know I am into toy wooden car making right now. I showed in one thread a jig I made for drilling holes for spoke wheels. Although I thought my indexing wheel was pretty, I just couldn't seem to get it accurate for what I wanted. So I emailed Mione Hill, I knew he had a CNC machine because he made the gears for my organ. We got on Skype and discussed it and he said he could do. He didn't use his CNC, but some other milling machine he has. Check this out:

    Made out of aluminum. All kind of holes for all kinds of indexing! He threw in a nice rod to use for mounting it also. I'm so excited about it I am going to remake the rest of the jig so it is good enough to put this wheel on!

    THANK YOU MIONE HILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    I think the reason why this forum is as good as it gets is because of the "core group" of senior woodworking professionals that enjoy helping others, giving back, especially to those that are relatively new to woodworking. There are a good number of younger woodworkers as well that contribute what they have learned here on this forum and have applied to their own projects, or pass on their knowledge that they have gained from their own prior personal experience. Plus, there is no fear of asking "how-to" questions because even the seniors have asked those questions before and are happy to provide the answers they have learned.
