Location: San Jose, CA

Nearly 72 YO and and an Army veteran.

Worked as an aircraft sheet metal mechanic and inspector for different aircraft firms all over the world. Worked on everything from Piper Cubs to the Space Shuttle. Spent a combined 3 1/2 years in VietNam as an Army helicopter crew chief and a tech rep for Lockheed aircraft.

New to woodworking, but my past work in sheet metal serves me well in regards to measuring and layout. The procedure is the same with different material.

Hi Y’Alll. New to the site and am totally impressed with the amount of info and input contained herein.

I am new to woodworking but if you care to read my profile you will get a better understanding of me.

My major interest is small projects such as boxes, clocks and sign making, also jigs that make life easier for my projects. I have an extremely small area to work from and most of my work is done with a circular saw and router. (Hand held and table) I have 4 routers and each has a specific purpose. A Milwaukee for my table, a Hitachi for my sign making, a Ridgid 2930 combo for hand held and a Ridgid trim router that is my favorite and does about anything I throw at it. Oh yeah I also have a Dremel tool and the router plunge base and router bits for it.

In certain areas of woodwork I have the IQ of a rock so I will no doubt ask for some help from time to time. Also I will tender my opinion and/or suggestion if I can be of help in things I am knowledgeable in. I do a tremendous amount of reading and research about routers and their application in woodworking.

Well I have rambled on so I will end this by saying I am very pleased to be a part of this family so to speak.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
