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...
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.
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?
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.
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 !
lots of nice old english stuff here as well as canadian brands im sure you've never heard of!!
jarrett and i have been known to exchange comments at 4 am our time, probably 4 pm or so your time
we are a much smaller group than owwm of course but we do help each other regularly
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 !
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.
