    Default 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.

    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

    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.

    For those that don't know. If it's made of paper and dirty he's most likely got a copy of it...lol

    Matty is a exciting addition to our forum, and I for one, am pumped to see him here. If for nothing else but to have someone to chat with while I'm usually alone on here during my night shifts...

    Thanks Jerome, I hope its legible at least, some nights I'm typing here just me, the computer and a bottle of red, not a lot makes sense after a while...

    Ahh Jarrett, the time difference is perfect, I foresee much posting on those lonely nights.

    Thanks for the kind words Guys, Its nice to feel so welcome !!!

    Thanks Steve,
    Pretty sure I am up with most of the Canadian makers, more so the earlier ones, I managed to win a very early Cant Brothers catalog on E bay recently, very pleased to get that one !
    A small group can only get bigger, I'm looking forward to all the interaction and talk with everyone, it will be fun !

    wellcome Matty

    hope you show us some of the Ausie machinery. I think they will like it. Matty clame to fame may be dirty papers ,but he also has some super bad machines. Lots of them Wadkin. Mill work is something Matty has a passion for also and runs a square head moulder . He does back yard casting. I for one would love him to talk about making casting at home.

    looking forward to the exchange.
