    Pete,

    You should consider also making a much smaller video so people on Dial up can see it.. You should make one that's very small (Like 1-2mb) and those that want to see more will then download the bigger one. Just a thought.

    I have a dial up modem. I down loaded for a week of subjective time and watched 7 seconds of it. Whatta cool machine. The spandy new belt sucks though. It needs some oil and blood on it like in old times.

    Fascinating. Absolutely fascinating. Great job with all the closeups of the mechanisms for those of us who've never used (or seen) a planer in action before.

    I enjoyed the video immensely.

    I can only say great video, and let you know that I am rather envious. It's quite a fine looking machine, and there are several times I could've used one just like it.

    When you've got it 100% perfect and you are confident using it, please post another video of it making some serious bed springs yes, that is something I would love to see. Got broadband here, so don't worry about the file size. That file downloaded in less time than it took me to mix a cup of instant coffee

    Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

    It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.
