Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

Yes I recognized the 4 names. IMO Tesla's 'ideas' won out even if they were not beneficial to him, but unquestionably we all benefit from them today. Tis a sad tale fer sure and a lesson re powerful 'figures'. My knowledge of De Forest/Armstrong is essentially nil but I think it had to do with broad...

Re: Mystery Attachments …. again!

I do not think any of those thingies are shopsmith related. The former owner obviously like a couple others here had metal working skill. Only the thingie that resembles a lathe cutting tool is recognizable by me. The hinged 1 1/2" 'clamp' was created with considerable time/effort/skill. Are th...

Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

Whew! I cannot argue against anything you stated above, however, there is more IMO to this controversy. Gass's activities external to the patent itself is where I become critical of his intentions. My perception is he is miffed by rejection by the power tool industry when he attempted to force them ...

Re: charlese

Allow me to add to what Dusty and Nuhobby posted. He was a great asset due to his experience as a forester(?). His sharing his knowledge of lumbering and the characteristics of our favorite medium that we all work with will be missed. He has already been missed here! Thank You for letting us know. I...

Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

I perceive that those who have chosen to not contribute further are upset re patent right opinions expressed here.

Why does this all seem familiar? I have been the bad boy in the past. However I am concerned that some long time members have not been active recently.(those which have been here longer than I) I doubt they have joined Bill Mayo.

The description pix for the aux table is not the newer version shown in the ad. ScreenHunter_129 Feb. 19 13.32.jpg I observed some positive things ...

Re: Updated Sliding Table
