New guy says hello

I use oldgreyguy as a name but OGG is easier for those of us who type with less than 10 fingers. Joining to learn from others, and thank you all for your contributions. Like many of you I am self taught, never having had a woodworking class. Relied on woodworking books, and mainly Fine Woodworking and Tage Frid. Like to do traditional glue joints such as mortise and tenon, dovetail, sliding dovetail, splined miter, etc and avoid metal fasteners where possible. Am a dumpster diver, and recycle a lot of wood for projects. Work in my basement in a fairly well equiped shop with no spare room, using both hand and power tools. Have had careers as an electronics technician, master die setter in powder metalurgy, Equipment engineering and maintenance, and am familiar with pnuematic, hydraulic, electrical, and mechanical repair. I like most people I meet, especially those who are a little different from me, as I learn the most from them. I am the cook for my wife and I and find it very rewarding as a creative outlet like woodworking. Glad to meet you all and hope I can be accepted into your group. If by any bizarre chance I have ideas to help you, I will share freely. Keep both your tools and your mind sharp.

welcome

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Im self taught too (but I had an idiot for a teacher).

God made us from dust, but all we can do is make dust.

I can cook almost anything well. I'm much better at cooking than woodworking. I eat everyday, I don't get to my shop that often sadly. Thanks for the howdy from all, best to all of you. What's your favorite dish, might be one of my specialties. I'm pretty good at Pies if you are a desert guy, and can cook almost anything on my gas grill.
Thanks to vets and those who supporrt them, 6 years Navy.
Why does it take so long to clean up the dust, and no time to make it?
I know what you mean about an idiot for a teacher. Had to do some training professionally, and its amazing how quickly you realize how ignorant you are when you first start trying to teach others.
Tom, I've heard that same thing about the firemedic guy from everyone , even on facebook from people I don't know. I'll watch out for him for sure.
Glad to be welcomed to your group, are there cookies after the meeting?

OGG

Did some research and found out the French did NOT invent the quiche......Its a German dish,meat and potato pie.Make my own crusts,and its a toss up on Bacon vs Sausage.

A cpl French girls DID invent a no-crust quiche......we call'm "hillbilly" quiche's mainly 'cause they're made in a cast iron skillet.Technically a single sided omlet,its a time N temperature thing.

Also make Gourmet Deer Jerky........it will deffinately spoil your pallet,that is.....you'll never want that store bought stuff again.

OGG,pick a forum and post in it.....sharing is what this site is all about.I'm interested in your pnuematic experience,from a jig/fixture sort of way.Take some pics of a setup or your shop.BW
