Unfortunately, I am having to make changes as I have for a few years found my involvement
with my website and videos far too demanding. I have therefore decided, now at the
age of 84 (2017), to cut back on what I do.
Whilst I will keep my email addresses, and my correspondence page her, I can no longer
accept mail that needs more than, typically, a “thank you” or “ pleased to hear you
have made my dividing head and am finding it useful”, etc.
For those who need help in making one of my projects, I am sorry that I feel it necessary
to take this action but would suggest that you use one of the many forums to pose
One exception is that I will attempt to answer questions where the enquirer needs
clarification regarding a projects design.
It is my intention for the foreseeable to call a halt to major additions to my website
and videos, but do not totally rule out the possibility of another video or a few
new pages in the future. I would now like to get into the workshop and start making
things just for the fun of it as apart from installing a shaper, not even used yet,
I have done nothing for some five years, probably even longer.
Some may wonder if the reason is because of a health problem, this is not so, it
is just that at 84 my brain is not as agile as it once was and find the process more
arduous than I am happy with.
To conclude, I would like to thank the very large number who have have written to
me over many years thanking me for my magazine articles, books, website, and more
recently, my videos. The response has been far more than I could have visualised
and has done a lot to keep me going.
