Retirement
« on: November 04, 2019, 01:51:30 PM »
I will be retiring December 31st, 2019. I want to say how much I've enjoy talking and giving advise on the forum.
I'm sure Wood-Mizer will continue to support the forum and those on here with the help needed.

Just spotted this thread. Many thanks for your help over the years.  Much appreciated by this old retired fellow.
I know you will enjoy yourself.  I retired a few days before 9-11 and my wife had to wake me up to see the mess
