Just watched your video and it reminded me that i could do a lot more if I got rid of a bunch of the junk I hang on to. Your collection of patterns and sentimental items is NOTHING compared to what I store. Or should that be hoard?

 [embarassed]

And now you're an author as well? Why am I not surprised?

I seldom sit still long enough to read a book, but I'd be happy to contribute a buck to your toy tool fund for all the videos and articles you've posted. Do you accept PayPal?

I felt embarrassed by the number of jigs that I still had sitting there - I got rid of twice as much before making the video ! Perhaps if you made a video of your workshop you might be tempted to tackle the excess.

The eBook is from Amazon and I do not get involved with the money side at all. My hope is that when my arthritis gets too bad to continue woodworking that I will be in a position to write the next book (or two).

Cheers.

Richard,
I am a native californian whose in the UK on a 3 year tour with about a year and half left.  Yup mustard on a hotdog is good, but nothing beats a chili cheese dog with onions or a chicago dog...

The shop is in a garage in a house Im renting. Thus the spur shelving I added and a lot of temp stuff (shop cabs etc that will be ripped out when I go back home). Cant wait to get back to the states, my shop there is about 2.5 times the size of this one. Since I got rid of my stationary tools and got my shop full of NAINA tools like the CMS TS 75 module and the jig saw module, my shop in the states will have all sorts of room.

That 'splains it. No sense making a bunch of plywood cabs then transporting that stuff back.

There are a lot of NAINA items I would be sorely tempted by, just knowing they were not available back here. It's similar to Woodpecker's OTT's, I bought a couple just because they were not normally available. It's not that I don't use them, I just didn't have a burning need at the time, but grabbed them anyway.

Now I'm craving a couple hot dogs, and it's lunch time here...

As of 10/17 I am out of the Dog business and pursuing other distractions. Thanks for a fun ride!

One item I got that I love is the TS75 module for the CMS. After I got it sorted, meaning adjusted correctly as there is a adjustment that's not mentioned in the manual or videos (I did see Frank mention it in one of his but no real detail) I got the saw cutting as good in the CMS as it does on the rail. I use it for solid wood, ripping smaller pieces etc. Even with the CMS nothing beats a guide rail for ripping sheet goods.
I do wish Festool would come up with a thickness planer and or bench top drum sander like the small jet.
But I don't see that happening.
Heading to Germany tomorrow,then on to Italy, gonna get some good eatin there. No decent hotdogs, but some good eatin

Never been to Italy, but man! that German cooking' is superb, especially when washed dow with a great German dark beer (or two).

The bakeries you can find just by flowing your nose.  I am starved long before my nose locates precisely.

We (THE BOSS & I) often go to German restaurants here in the US, but they always seem to Americanize their meals.  It just ain't the same, especially the bread.  My wife made all of our own bread for around twenty years, until the kids were out of the house.  I think she kept a batch of sourdough going for years.  She claims not, but it was great, especially with big gobs of (real)  butter melting in to a heated slab.

Tinker,
"Americanized" food is always different than what you would find in the country of origin.  I found food in Italy somewhat bland, although quite tasty!  The best Italian food was in the small family run restaurant that may sit 8 to 12 diner's at max.  True Mexican fare is definitely different than what we have in the USA.  French cuisine I've found to be more in-line globally than any other.   That's been my experience anyway.

I'll try not to interrupt your flow Ron but - back to the plot...

I have had several questions following the original release of the video and have addressed these in this short "Workshop Tour - Revisited" video. Here is the link:

I read Peter’s book ‘Stone Message’ some time ago and thoroughly enjoyed the tale – so much so that I couldn’t put the book down until I had finished it - I just kept needing to know what happened next.

I thought I would post a short review on Amazon, but my pathetic drafts ended up being nothing more than repeats of what others had already written, or they gave away more of the plot, which I felt was not the right thing to do.

Having just watched Peter’s video tour of his workshop and his brief mention of his book at the end, I would just like to say that I feel ‘Stone Message’ shares the same traits as his videos – being well thought out, well produced, but most of all, engaging.

There is a (very) slim chance than Ron has read the book which is uncanny as the hero gets hit by a giant hot dog, covered in mustard, on page 127. Then in the naughty scene Ron spotted that my proof reader told to remove it.

Now as Rumpelstiltskin said - can we return to the thread.

Peter

I am sort of in the same boat.  One of these days, I will be unable to walk.  Right now, the arthritis is holding my spine together, so I am still able to work every day.  I have been writing little stories about my life as well as lives of some of my family and good friends.  I have made collections (and presented) for a several people who were especially dear to me.  I keep telling my wife that one of these days, i will put all of the stories together into a book for our kids. A good friend, also the subject of one of my collections has offered to take care of putting into a bound edition for me.

The stories i have spread thru out THE FOG are just a touch of what i have so far stored.  Nothing technical, but mostly just fun stuff >>> and all very true.  It is fun writing and telling such tales so when i wake up and can no longer walk, or, maybe cannot stand, I will still have something to keep me busy for a looonnnnngtime.  I'm optimistic so my glass is more than half full.   [big grin]

Hi Wayne

Yes, life is full of good days and sometimes bad ones too. Yesterday we said farewell to a good friend. He was a self made man who started from nothing. He had done a lot to help me over the years and so it was hard seeing him go. He was a truly determined chap. He lost a leg when he was 14 but despite that he was resolved to do normal work. He even played as goal keeper for a local football team. I have seen him doing ground work, wheeling a wheelbarrow on his land and working so hard that his stump would bleed.

Many years ago I used to raise money for a children's home. Kids would go into the home at age 3 and if they were still alive go into adult care at 18. I met an 11 year old girl who was completely blind. She showed me how to use a braille machine. She was so happy and bubbly. As well as being blind she was completely crippled with arthritis. I always think of her when I get a little pain and think just how lucky I am. I have had a full working life and mostly trouble free. She did not even get beyond that first step on the ladder. I think of her every day.

Warning more thread drift.

Hey Mr. Tinker!

On one of your trips to the Tool Nut with the boss, consider taking the long way home and stop by the Mountain Brahaus Restaurant in Gardiner, NY.  Closed the first few weeks in January & every Monday, Tuesday.  Busy on the weekend, go early or mid-week.  No financial interest, just a semi regular patron.

www.mountainbrahaus.com    for more info.

Hey John,
The address don't work.  It does sound interesting.  On 1/10. I will be going to the Nut where a few nuts will be collecting for a few demos.  I will probably bring my grandson with me as he is getting a little interested in WW'ing.  I think his thumbs need a rest once in a while.  I don't know where Gardiner is, but if it is close enough to the nut, i will just follow my nose.  GS just turned 16, so, like most teens, he is sometimes interested in food, and he will go anywhere as long as he can drive  ::).

There has been some conversation about shop neatness and cluttered shop.  I think it was jobsworth who mentioned how sloppy (or words to the effect) his shop is.  Take a look.



That is my grandson drilling for shelf pins on his Christamas present >>> from last year.  He was only just now able to find his way to the work bench.  Had to bring in one of his dad's excavators.

I am starting next week to make some wall shelves and cabinets so I can find my way around.  Yes, i really will do that. I really, really, really will.

Yup Tinker,
Yours looks like a clone of Jobbys shop. I did manage to build some things and move some things around so I got more storage. Still crowded though. Since I dont plan on building any big items til I get back to the states, Im going to remove the side extension and outfeed from my CMS. Give me some walk around space.
I should give up the hotdogs and lose some girth, maybe I can move around better. :>)

I don't have any sort of girth problem. The problem in my shop is that if i ever fall down, i won't be able to find up.

As always Peter a pleasure to watch your videos. I have tried to do stuff in front of the camera and film myself. I find it very difficult and I get nervous and forget what I wanted to say.
So I enjoy your ease of information and banter and your good editing.
Short and sweet
Thank you for sharing your ideas, You have made me change a lot of things I do in my workshop.
I have been Pondering Dust extraction for years and love your simple solution.
Your paff Dogs get used regularly, though I have the old alu ones. They still work fine.
I look forward to the next exciting episode of Brit Workshop Films.
I am guessing you will be busy in the new year with the new Festool releases.

Happy New Year and to your jolly good health

Hi Pip

Happy New Year to you and everyone in Bielefeld.

You are very kind but it takes forever to get it right. There is a switch on my video camera that has 3 positions "record", "off" and "review". After every take I have to check that I have said what I think I said and make sure that I have remembered to switch the radio microphone on. So, that switch goes from "record" to "review" via "off" every time. I probably take 4-6 goes to get a clip right and each video will have 25 - 50 usable clips. I am really hoping that the mean time between failure for that switch on the camera is in the 100,000 plus region otherwise I am stuffed.

I am currently working on a video to help people decide which of the three Festool general woodworking routers to buy. I then intend to do a product tour of the OF1010. I have started but have a delay making a video about 3M ear defenders with radio and Bluetooth. I am filming the making of a TV cabinet which will feature push to open drawers and I am, as always, working on new ideas to follow on from the Parf Dogs. Oh, I have been asked to do something about rugged mobile telephones - someone contacted me who has broken his second smartphone and so I am doing some research.
