This is a special section, perhaps temporary, to help our man Timmy1 with his efforts to assemble a working 8J10 Wilcox-Gay Recordette for experimental record cutting. The reasons for this will be explained shortly, but please do check in and help! He's a great guy with a worthy project.
1. Be nice. Don't piss on other people's threads. There's gotta be a way to promote what you do without tearing down what other people do. There's got to be a way to redirect a misdirected or redundant question without discouraging people from contributing.
It breaks my heart when people tell me they don't post on this site often, or at all, due to fear of being humiliated by some of those who post here very frequently. That's not the way it is supposed to work.
I am sorry I don't police the site better. I don't catch a lot of the sniping. Please police yourselves.
2. Don't post private messages (PMs). That's generally a big no-no around here. If you feel you need to make an exception, you sure as hell better check with me first.
In short, act like adults; fun, grounded, smart adults.
hiya Steve! great site as always! just to put this out there...i am TRYING to be nice...but honestly, my last post wasnt very nice. losing patience a wee bit...but u have a great site here, and i God Bless u for it!
well, seems i have been banned by AussieOzbourne for getting frustrated and calling u guys Lathe Dildoes...sorry man, lost my head a bit...but i will say that my vehemence got me exactly the right response after trying numerous times the polite way! if he is willing to re-instate me on that thread i will edit it.
No offense meant, but this is a long-game kind of hobby, you know. Patience is the game, my friend. Most of these cats have been at it for over ten years, and have invested tend-of-thousands of dollars into the craft. You've gotta give respect where it's due, man.
(By the way, I enjoyed your dedicatory track for lathe-trolls.)
I read Mulchefye's Recordio threads. Please, don't ban him, as he helps contribute to the exploration and restoration of older lathes. "Think of the children.")

Hi. You were never banned. As stated in my PM of 17-DEC-15 I deleted your thread for the reasons stated in my message so it's not possible to edit. Glad to see you're getting in the swing of things here.
