Retired math teacher by day sawdust maker by night! I've been signed up here at for a while but haven't contributed lots because of lack of spare time of which when I had it, I used it to make stuff. I have time again. I retired in June 2009 from the public schools I worked for. That was short lived since I taught 2-3 math classes at Heald College twice a week but have stopped teaching there too. Kept me out of the bars... ;o)
I live in Herald, CA about 20 miles southeast of Sacramento the capital where I taught Mathematics to middle schoolers for the last 21 years and 6 more in Albuquerque, NM. I was a MAC and MATCO man in between times (probably why I like tools so dang much).
I have 2 kids and two grandsons. My wife Betty, is a horse Vet and we have lots of critters...
If you get a chance, check out my site and please sign the guestbook at, thanks.

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
