    The bloke from Morocco said he like to make small things for children.

    Cooee what an experience Pierre thank you.

    In our Wood Group for years the newsletter guy and Secretary pushed a line of top fund raising but he was like a weird expression a Rat with a gold tooth, everything he touched was the very best. Saws , tools home theatre etc etc. One year we (I was always on the main Committee) ran our annual exhibition at a big TAFE (Technical Education establishment) he coaxed the Hospitality people to run an open bar, it cost us 1500 dollars plus 15000 to run the exhibition.

    So ten steps forward with guys like this then drop back many with high flyers.

    As it is with many high flyers, don,t settle for basic kits start at the top and go to the moon and back with extravagent everything forcing big sales and making a business from a hobby.

    In our present Wood Guild we have a magnificent Shed , lots of rats with a gold tooth types who aim to double the size, minimum standard Saw Stop Table Saw etc taking it out from you and me into a big business need.

    I not comment why not put your timber on expensive kits well quite frankly I do not have the money or inclination either nor the gold tooth driving me. I just want to have fun to the moon and back.

    Peter.
