    And thank you for your interest. As you can see, this is a very new web site and an even newer forum -- but it won't take long for both to grow. So please, sign up, sign in, and get busy. If you have any questions about the way this forum works, see http://www.workshopcompanion.com/Forum/FAQ/FAQ.htm. And let me know if I can be of help.

    With all good wishes,
    Nick

    Glad to see that you have the forum up and running now. Really missed you since the sawdust sessions stopped. I am wishing for great success on this new venture and looking forward to continuing my woodworking knowledge with all that you are so generous in sharing with us.

    I am so glad to see you back in the shop, Nick.

    I can't say it has been boring while you were off doing your own thing but it'll be better now that you are back.

    This site looks great so far, welcome back.

    BTW Not only do I work wood, but I am also one of those computer geeks you spoke about in your forum intro.

    I kind of have my hand in both worlds as do you by creating this site.

    Good luck!

    I agree with you Dusty, but when the Administrator doesn't take the time to stop by for almost a year, I guess you can't expect much. I know it took some time to put this together. It would be a shame to see it go away. There is a lot of good information on the web site. I have this bookmarked and click on it a lot just to see if there is any activity.

    I have had a small amount of communication with Nick. It is my understanding that there are several factors involved, all of which everyone would understand, that are keeping him away. But since my communication is not regular and is not frequent, I can not help but be somewhat concerned. Like you have siad, there is so much information here already and Nick has so much more to offer - it would be a real shame to see this site disappear.

    Don't forget though, Nick is paying to keep it up so he must intend to return.

    Patience, Grasshopper. (I heard that somewhere)

    I am new to this Forum, and a newbie to ShopSmithing. I acquired a refurbished (incorrectly, I might add) 1955 Greenie with a lot of extra parts and accessories. I mainly intended to use this as a drill press and band saw, but quickly my attentions have turned (no pun intended) to the lathe functions. I have just discovered this Forum and wondered what happened to the Sawdust Sessions on the Shopsmith site. Nick Engler is a top notch information source, and I also hope that all is well with him. I also hope this site can remain available and thrive. Thank you.

    I share your hopes for the longevity of this site. I try to check in daily. I don't always manage to do that but I get here multiple times weekly.

    The site lacks a lot of appeal; however, without the informative information that Nick always provided.

    All we can do is hope that one day very very soon Nick will get back to it.

    Last two posts on here indicate spam. What a trifle? That someone would take all this time and effort to put up this kind of rubbish. My opinion of spammers is that if you spend all that time and energy doing something really productive, you would have decent manners and do something productive. Please don't leave your trash on this wonderful dedicated site.

    Thanks Nick,
    I'm just getting started using my Shopsmith after 13 yrs of lost interest. Thanks to your Sawdust Sessions videos on maintenance and repair I now have my 510 headstock completely apart and am ordering some parts from Shopsmith. Thanks for not giving up, and offering this fine website. I'm sure that in reading what this site has to offer from you and other craftsmen will continue to help me in getting going again. Thanks Again, Van

    Ok, now that I have my headstock apart , I guess looking ahead, I would ask, what is the best way to put the headstock back on the waytubes when ready to go? All I can find at Shopsmith describes the cardboard inserts that come with your new Shopsmith. Do I just remove the headstock lockdown mechanism and reinstall it after I put the headstock back on? Any advise I can get will be greatly appreciated.
