  • Welcome to your Vintage machinery forum....

    Whoo hoo....

    Looks like the powers came through for us...

    Lets make our new home a friendly place for everyone to discuss anything of vintage / antique nature.

    I for one am excited at the possibilities....

    Enjoy.

          Only a moderator can move a thread, but maybe we can help them out. Litle. I suggest we create a separate thread where we post links to the threads we want moved here. As they get moved the mods can scratch them off the list w're creating...

          Sound good...?

            The easiest for us is if you post a link to the thread you think should be moved...that way, we don't have to go searching for it.

                    Re: Welcome to your Vintage machinery forum....

                    Well how about that.... Just after some quick scanning of the general power tools forum we've managed to move 7 pages worth of content out of only the first 25 pages of that forum.

                    So what's that....?.... roughly 30% of the Power Tools forum over the course of this calendar year has been of "vintage" content. Based on that, I think the request for our own space is fairly justified.

                    I think the next course of action should be a sticky for a member's gallery of finished restorations.... I'd start it myself but...., lol... I have yet to finish anything.

                      yeah i moved most of those 7 pages over in the last 24 hours thanks to jarrett for flagging most of them for me

                      a "members gallery" is a great idea, we'll make it a "sticky" so that its always at the top

                      ive got some goodies to add

                        Re: Welcome to your Vintage machinery forum....

                        Hi Jarrett,

                        I'm new to both this site as well as this type of communication. I think I want to post my recent entry here but don't quite know how to go about doing that. I have saved the pictures in my post in an album that can be viewed on my profile but I'm not sure what else to do now. Can you advise?

                        Much thanks!

                        Kathryn

                          Hi Kathryn, and welcome to the forum...

                          I'm going to have to apologise, but I'm a little pressed for time at the moment, but if another regular doesn't jump in and explain what you want to know, I'll jump back on later today and go through the steps on filling your posts with pics.

                          Thanks

                          Jarrett

                          edit: Here's the link to the FAQ for adding pics to your posts.

                            Hi Guys,

                            This looks like a good place to start I guess, I'm new to the forum and just wanted to say Hi !
                            Many thanks to forum member Jack (Jgarrett Forsberg) who encouraged my transition over and also a very warm welcome already from Jarrett (J. Vibert).
                            I was told by a reliable source that this little area is fast becoming the place for discussing English Machines, and running through the posts already I can see why !!
                            You Guys have got something great going on here, looking forward to being a part of the action !

                            Keep well everyone !

                            Melbourne Matty.
