Title: Site spidered?

Wow!  About 3,000 views each on two different topics.

We may be very interested in this stuff, but I would think that our little world here about a particular grinder is pretty obscure and esoteric to the rest of 'Net land. :)

Sorry, "spidered" isn't part of my vocabulary.  I guess my last millennium roots are showing.  Three thousand hits on  three year old posts does not seem unusual to me.  The one post was about a guy trying to save some money by buying a less expensive Grizzly base to go with his Tormek accessories. I suspect there are many, even many on this forum, who considered going the less expensive route.

The other post concerned the Tormek being slow, another popular topic.  I think this post would be interesting to revive, as it seems to have merit. 

I wonder what happened to the initial poster who had purchased all the stuff, but no machine.  I suspect he has moved onto buying other things to store in his basement.  I feel sorry for him; I don't think he will ever experience the joy of creating a really sharp edge or creating anything except credit charges.

Ken,
Actually it sounds like he got one or that he already had one when that was written. I wonder if he was just writing fictionally for a story. If you go to the members list and click on his  member name (Redoak), then click on "show posts". It shows 3 posts written just a few days apart (March 16, 2010, March 19, 2010, March 22, 2010). You can determine from his comments, particularly the latest post, that he had a Tormek.

[One thing though, after the initial shaping on the vertical mount, which was pretty good as it was, I decided to move it over to the horizontal mount to polish it off a bit before honing. I used the TT setter to set the universal mount on that side and thought that would be "close enough". Apparently not.]

It's too bad there are so many members have never posted or only a few times and then apparently disappeared. But then it might be better if I would stay quieter!

Not at all Elden, I for one enjoy reading your posts. Keep them coming :-)

I second Rob's thoughts.  Keep posting, Elden.
