      A lot of his jigs were truly ingenious. He really was able to attack problems in interesting ways, making do with what he had to make something that was really amazing.

        Truly very sad news. Niki was one of those very rare people who selflessly shared his knowledge with others and never expected anything in return. He will be missed.

                  I have nominated the Niki thread that Rick posted the link to for the Thread Of The Week Award. Let's push this one over the top. I can't think of a better way to say, Thank you Niki.

                    So sad. He amazed me at how he used pure simplicity to create amazing jigs.

                          I caught this very sad notice over on the BT3Central forum a couple of days ago. I find is tough to respond to news that one of our much respected forum members has gone from us.

                          I never knew Niki beyond this forum and wish that I had known him better. I very much admired his inventiveness and talent for innovation, despite the fact that he didn't have a lot of the jig materials that are so readily available here in the U.S.

                          He was very resourceful and his time in the shop and in the exercise of his innovations seemed endless. Sadly, very sadly, time is not endless and he will be missed by everyone who shared his ideas and fine craftsmanship.

                          To me, "Niki Stuff" will always be the place for excellent examples of what a person can do, with thought and imagination. And for you Niki, you will be missed by all of us; and for me, any time I see something from any of our team that is neat and inventive and innovative... well, I'll just think COOL... like NIKI"
