    Sorry, I just noticed the post you sent. I thought you were telling me to try and bite my tongue.

    Nikon has just resumed production out of their Thai facilities… although I'm left wondering if any of the components they'll be using were subjected to adverse conditions. Are there a lot of mold spores in the air there now?

    I have not even seen a bandsaw for sale here and since I am unable to travel far BKK is out. Make do with what I have mostly. Does your username denote a previous life as a Marine?

    very sorry to hear about the damage. hope you can salvage the tools, esp. the pricier ones.
    i'll be looking for a table saw in Bangkok in a few months. currently use a makita benchtop/worksite saw that is not very good. there seems to be better selection in bandsaws than table saws, but I don't know what sort of blade sizes and qualities are available.

    Between damage to the house, lost furniture and personal stuff and my tools....quite a bit gone. We had about a meter on the property and a couple of feet in the house. Lived upstairs for 5 weeks but it could have been worse, at least we had power and AC in the bedroom.
    I guess I lucked out and got a good "Chinese" (Taiwan) table saw. Spent a few days squaring it all up and it has served well. Un fortunately that is one of the things that was under water for a few weeks so I am just starting to see if it can be salvaged. The saw/router table is history but I hope that with some de-rusting the saw will survive.

    we're just between Wat UMong and Wat Rampoeng, abutted against the Doi Suthep fire trail.
    on high ground, so we had no flooding.
    house in ubon is low-lying but not near the river, so no flooding there either.
    Hope you didn't suffer to much damage. Some friends in Bangkok were hit very hard.

    I hear that. Also have a few friends from "P" 75th. What's going on....flood was fun. Chapter 3 is alive and well but populated with kids (good kids, but kids). Still a few of us FOGS here, some from recon, some from 46 company. I live in the boonies so do not keep up much with the goings on in the metropolis.
    Biggest challenge here is finding decent tools. Can get bench top stuff of some quality but freestanding tools are mostly China made. If you are interested in more in depth discussions of who is and isn't still around drop me a PM on SOCNET so it is out of the public forum.

    You're in Thailand? What's going on there? I haven't stayed in touch with anyone, except one from 75th Rangers. Not the best time in my life.
