Just discovered this page...guess I should have come here first. Reminds me of those meetings where the guy up front says we have a new member, stand up and tell us something about yourself. Well, long ago I was born and now I'm old. In between I graduated from the Naval Academy, spent some time in the Marine Corps, resigned and got into the computer industry. Mostly I was a software guy, some of that time a software manager which I didn't like because my guys got to do all the fun stuff and I got to stand up in meetings and report how we were doing...meetings...endless, endless meetings. And now I'm retired, which enables me to spend lots of time playing with my toys (just me 'n the cat now) with nary a meeting in sight. I have a gas engine powered bandmill which enables me to start with a log, and I built a dehumidification kiln that lets me dry about 800 bdft at a time (never had it that full, though). My shop used to be the 2-1/2 car garage, hasn't seen a car in many moons. My machines are mostly Grizzly...in my view represents great value, and Muncy is close enough that I can manage the 3-hour drive over there on the occasions that I decide to acquire a new machine. The Grizzly machines I have now are the 10" LT table saw, 12" jointer, 20" planer, 3 hp shaper, VS mill/drill, dust collector, mortiser (new) and 17" bandsaw (new). Non-grizzly stuff is many and varied, IR 2-stage compressor, Plano vertical glue press, Fische mini-lathe, couple of Festool things (great stuff), Tormek T7 (new), and so forth. I don't do any of this for income, just for fun. As Confederate Railroad says, Keep on rockin or you'll turn to stone. I do some home brewing (extract), some backpacking, and enjoy making holes in paper with my 1911s (I also reload for them). And for the past year I've enjoyed being a grandpa. I've been prowling around here for a few weeks now, and am pleased to be a member...seems like a friendly place. My best to all.
