    First, I am a newbie!
    Second, it's been 40 years since I've been in front of a lathe, but I'm working on correcting that!
    Third, I've been reading ALL the forums and threads. Quite often I'll learn something, other times I'll see something I will want to build when the time comes, and quite often I will get a good chuckle out of something. But it's always good.

    I've been writing up what I hope will be articles, and it seems a good deal more than 2x the effort. At least it is for me. Just taking pics of the stages is actually a good deal of trouble. Making drawings for stuff you may have done off-hand and writing text is a long process.

    Doing it for the forum seems like it is bragging, and often the threads get buried fairly fast, anyway, so it seems as if folks are not that interested.

    That other forum is as good as dead.

    Way too long posts? You mean like this one? Looks like you created a monster here yourself.

    Too long threads should be snipped off with sharp scissors, if you just pull on it your trouser cuffs may drop down.

    Facebook groups are such a crap way of organizing discussion around a topic. Forums are superior. I hate the FB interface.

    This thread is way too long!
    If you benefit from the Dunning-Kruger Effect you may not even know it ;-)
