    If you use your old bookmark to the Ridgid forums, it redirects you.

    I'm sure, for research and development, Ridgid will keep the boards alive if for nothing more.

    Personally, I thin Ridgid has realized it's a wonderful place for all of us to share ideas and ideals.

    It's one of the WoodWorking's prefered, and pronounced forums of all times. It's members continues to grow...It's dedicated members contionue to offer advice. Because of a statement made...the changes have already been put in place over past years. They just made us aware of it, and the contacts should not be a huge surprise.

    What I have noticed is...Dave Arbuckle hasn't made offerings of his vast knowledge since the release of the the report.

    What say yee Dave? You still with us?

      Dave's been posting, last time on the 13th.
      Don't worry, I'm sure we haven't lost him.
      Give a guy a chance to take a vacation, or even
      a break from all the commotion.
      I blank out myself for awhile sometimes.

        This is my first and favorite woodworking forum, but lately it hasn't been about woodworking, but about all the potential things that could happen to the corporate structure of vendors, sales approaches, product lines, manufacturing, and other topics over which we have no control, and not about woodworking.

        As a result I have been getting my woodworking forum "fix" elswhere - most often on

        Despite the frustration of not knowing exactly how things will come out, and the desire to vent our frustration, I suggest we go back to making sawdust, and get the discussion here back to woodworking. If we do, I suspect that Dave Arbuckle and some of the other woodworking experts will reappear. And I will enjoy this forum again.

          I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

            Getting back to the original question, here are my favorite WW forums:

            Saw Mill Creek
            The Oak
            WoodworkersCentral (WWA)

            I visit Wood occasionally but find it to be the least informative of any I have visited. There are about 10 others I have bookmarked that I visit once every couple of weeks or so.

              Thanks for asking, Woody. I've not left, but have been having _BIG_ troubles here at day_job with a malfunctioning mail server, that ate all my time.

              This is the first day this week I've gotten to eat lunch... (those who've met me know that's a priority to me )

                Just for the record, isn't going anywhere anytime soon. None of us know about it if it is, anyway. [img]smile.gif[/img] And we haven't heard any plans for pulling the plug on the woodworking part of the Forum, either.

                  Thanks for chimming in Norm and giving us incouraging and relieving news.

                  Keep up the great work!
