Location: Northern PA

A 76 year-old newbie to woodworking. Started nicely equipping my shop in 2004, and in 2005 suffered a stroke while undergoing heart catherization. Presently have a lot more shop than physical capabilities. Previously involved in computer work since 1957; Pilots liscense ( SELI ) since 1985: Drove tractor-trailer since 1992. Certainly wish that I had some sort of vocational training while I was younger, but hanging in there !!

With a name like Joe ya can’t be all bad. Sorry to hear about your stroke. I didn’t have one of those but they were going to do an angioplasty on me but opted to do a triple-bypass instead when they found my widow-maker artery almost totally plugged. Never had a heart attack or even felt bad but I sure did after they used a chain saw and a bumper jack on my chest. Thought I wasn’t ever going to get better. It sure hurt like he double hockey sticks for a couple of months. That was 2 years ago this month and I think I’m better than I was then. Ya want to trade shops?

-- JoeR Nothing that I could make will ever be perfect but I'll use it anyway.
