@benjamenjohnson: I didn’t see a suggested topic tonight. I just mentioned the injuries because I just took a 1mm2 chunk out of my index finger. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @RhodyFurniture Mansfield MA, not too far #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: ummm @benjamenjohnson … you didn’t hit the schnapps BEFORE the accident. did ya? #woodchat Just checkin…

@benjamenjohnson: @RhodyFurniture RT Anyone know a friend that makes chairs? What kind of chairs, I’ve helped my dad make some Adirondack s(sic) #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: @MansFineFurn not too far at all, nice to meet you. We should grab a beer sometime. #Smallworld #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @WoodworkGuy No, yesterday I was sharpening a chisel when my boy walked up behind me. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I know a couple of folks that make chairs #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @RhodyFurniture Absolutely —>beer #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Heading to the kegerator for a pint of craft Weizenbock to enjoy #woodchat

@dividedlight: hey everyone! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @uppercutwood #woodchat been looking into dust collection lately. anyone have experience with the Wynn Environmental filters?

@RhodyFurniture: @benjamenjohnson dining room chairs. we build tables but dont have the time to do chairs as well #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: @MansFineFurn ok perfect, this #woodchat thing is great!

@Tumblewood: Hey Guys..just ended WTO…I’m recording now..I’ll post on G+ Woodchat #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Glad you’re enjoying #woodchat @RhodyFurniture

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor No, I just looked them up, what problem are you trying to solve? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: hey vic, I’ve got the earlier posts if you want them #woodchat

@Tooltutor: Also, is there a decent off the shelf Thies vortex filter trash can top pre-separator. Most of what I see is scratch built w/pvc #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hi there @dividedlight #woodchat

@mamader: evening all #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Thanks @Tumblewood #woodchat

@JC_McGrath: evening all #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: @MansFineFurn are the chair makers local? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hello @mamader and @JC_McGrath #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @benjamenjohnson I use Tweetchat, but I want the group to move to G+ Woodchat..much easier for me to follow and auto record #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn I have all the way to 6:03 #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson Seems filter bags clog easily and even fine filter bags aren’t as efficient as rated (not third party tested). #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: @Tumblewood @benjamenjohnson is there audio for this #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tumblewood Do you just copy and paste or is there some other functionality I’m not seeing of TweetChat? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I need to go change and get to work.I’ll record and post..but have a hard time following this many conversations on Twitter #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson Link to Wynn Filter cartridges http://t.co/iZiyKezS #woodchat

@JC_McGrath: See you Vic Roubo :”_) #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I have a Rockler Vortex on my Shop Vac, but you need to check the filter from all the fine powder that gets from the Vortex #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @RhodyFurniture No, we just mean record all the tweets so you can repost the entire chat later. #woodchat

@JC_McGrath: i am going to have to catch up on the transcript, too much stuff to finish – Gnite all! have a Wonderful Christmas/Holidays! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @JC_McGrath lol..thanks Jon..my cam is up if anyone wants to follow. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Happy Holiday to you and yours @JC_McGrath #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Sorry I’m late #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor Yeah, I know form other applications that you can’t necessarily trust the stated filter efficiency #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @benjamenjohnson I am working on doing a G+ hangout panel discussion, too! To enable us to be a real guild..shop tours etc. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood I’m recording..I’m off to change and get to work on my project. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @WoodworkGuy That’s the part I’m trying to catch effectively, fine dust, with the Wynn http://t.co/iZiyKezS #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tumblewood Cool. I can’t wait to see it work. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I will do a transcript again #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: @benjamenjohnson gotchya #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So do people have good jigs to share #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @Tooltutor that would be really handy to capture the fine dust. Really tired of clearing filters #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @WoodworkGuy Is the Vortex worth the money? Does it work that much better than a simple separator (non vortex) #woodchat

@Seanw78: #woodchat Happy Holidays to one and all #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @benjamenjohnson It works great – except for the fine dust on the shop vac filter. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Define good :>) #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I’m curious to see how that works @Tooltutor #woodchat

@dividedlight: @uppercutwood I have a neat way that I make my cope cuts but I didn’t have time to prepare anything. Couldn’t find any photos. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @WoodworkGuy It’s also that fine dust that causes the health issues. I’m pretty paranoid about the toxicity of some wood species #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @dividedlight I’d definitely be interested in that! I can cope simple molding OK, but start adding curves and shadowlines…Yeck. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @Tooltutor Tropical woods? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I totally agree @Tooltutor Might have to break down for a better DC system #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor Yeah, I hear you on the toxicity part. My solution is to wear a respirator when I think about it. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I wore a respirator today when cutting and routing cherry. Ounce of prevention. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @benjamenjohnson I wear one for mahogany, etc #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Good plan @benjamenjohnson #woodchat

@dividedlight: @uppercutwood routers are really bad for dust. I just completed a bunch of template work with a router. Nasty. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I need to use a laser cutter before next wednesday. The createspace in seattle has one for $2 per minute. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @dividedlight Even common woods can be toxic. Here’s a chart I found http://t.co/TIZILsFa #woodchat

@JimAAshley: hi folks, a bit late tonight #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson I have a respirator too but I don’t always wear it and I usually take it off long before all the air is clear #woodchat

@uppercutwood: My favorite jig is a router dado jig used with straight cutting bits that have bearings. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I am going to get one of those dust bee gone masks for general use. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Odd thickness plywood is no match for it, and you don’t need lots of bits. Just good 1/2″ or 5/8″ guide bearing straight bits. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Holy smokes, am I late? 🙂 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I need to make a jig for cutting key hole slots in some plaques. For hanging them on the wall. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hey Tom @TomsWorkbench welcome. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @TomsWorkbench Hey Tom buddy! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I just found a list on the toxic woods, Hmm…didn’t realize Ash was on there. http://t.co/0DRcbz3u #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Gosh, this is embarrassing… I was out in the shop installing some pull out shelves in the pantry unit! #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @TomsWorkbench hi Tom #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @WoodworkGuy I’m looking into a Delta 50-760 with a Wynn filter and a pre-separator http://t.co/N1h934SN #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WoodworkGuy one of these? http://t.co/Vq41qyGp #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: We limit the dust by using mostly hand planes on our furniture #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Thanks for that chart @Tooltutor Interesting and scary… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: I guess the best question for tonight – who is on the ‘naughty’ list, and who is on the ‘nice’ list? 🙂 #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @uppercutwood Any particular model of jig? #woodchat Could use one for my closet project.

@WoodworkGuy: That would be a great DC system @uppercutwood #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @uppercutwood If you ever need a rapid prototype machine with Polycarbonate, I’ll give any #woodchat members a deep discount.

@uppercutwood: @Tooltutor I made the jig, similar to Woodwhisperer’s #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Naughty here… >;-) RT @TomsWorkbench: I- who is on the ‘naughty’ list, and who is on the ‘nice’ list? 🙂 #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @WoodworkGuy no problem. it scared ME too! hence all the research on dust collection #woodchat Breathed enough bad stuff in my life

@uppercutwood: @Tooltutor you have a laser cutter or CNC? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @WoodworkGuy I’m on the ‘to be decided’ list… :-0 #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Yes. RT @uppercutwood: @WoodworkGuy one of these? http://t.co/40SJ1bp1 #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @TomsWorkbench If you’re not on the naughty list, you just ain’t livin’! =P #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I think I’m on the list of those “who must not be named” #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @Tooltutor You are taking some serious risks there, hombre. 😉 #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Billy Joel says “only the good die young” RT @Tooltutor: @TomsWorkbench If you’re not on the naughty list, you just ain’t livin’! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @uppercutwood I’ve got a 4 axis CNC at work but I don’t know G-code. no laser cutter, only 2 rapid prototypers, a Fortus & ZPrint #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @uppercutwood thanks, I’ll look through the whisperer archive. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @TomsWorkbench Yeah, but you just made points for wife’s b-day… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: I had a Festool Domino on the wish list I sent to the North Pole.. not sure it’s gonna make the sleigh… #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @TomsWorkbench shh…don’t tell my wife 😛 #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor Only 2 rapid prototypers…Hey that’s two more than I have. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @WoodworkGuy I did. She did like the helicopter ride… Maybe this will be my lucky year… HA HA HA HA HA…. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson Wish I had more ideas to abuse them instead of making #starwars ships for the CFO. He writes the checks afterall #woodchat

@uppercutwood: #woodchat I’d like one of these, Santa http://t.co/Zq850Knc

@uppercutwood: I’d like a better router table setup, with Dust Collection too #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: I’d like some freakin’ lessons on how to hand cut dovetails! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @TomsWorkbench I was late playing Jetpack Joyride on the #ipad. At least your excuse is #woodchat related

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Yikes: the shipping on that Dust Collector costs about as much as an entry level DC #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Sorry I had to bail on #woodchat tonight. The fever is kicking my butt. Delusions and everything…off to bed, & read transcripts tomorrow

@WoodworkGuy: @TomsWorkbench that was a cool gift, but rumor has it that Iggy will score the choice gifts… #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: FEEL BETTER @MansFineFurn and happy holidays #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @uppercutwood oooh…that’s nice! Put me down for one of those too. Throw in some extra shop space while you’re at it Santa #woodchat

@uppercutwood: #woodchat or one of these, with the remote please http://t.co/ubIpKHKW

@JimAAshley: @MansFineFurn ugh, feel better! #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: @uppercutwood $1900 is a little steep for Santa :/ #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MansFineFurn Get better soon! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn Feel better, I’ll do the transcripts. Sorry I missed a couple and now can’t get them from twitter. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @WoodworkGuy Iggy is ALWAYS getting the good gifts… #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @MansFineFurn Feel better Nick. #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: @MansFineFurn nice meeting you! Feel better and Happy Holidays! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Such is life Tom… @TomsWorkbench #woodchat

@uppercutwood: #woodchat where is @Tumblewood or @DyamiPlotke or @DJOfurnituremkr

@TomsWorkbench: @WoodworkGuy I know I’m gonna get a bunch of bananas… And Iggy’s gonna get the domino… #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Vic had to work and Dynami couldn’t make it. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood It’s getting close to Christmas… probably at a mall doing last minute shopping #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @TomsWorkbench but bananas are a-pealing… Maybe the monkey will share. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Well glad I got here, even if I got here late. So anyone have great jigs to share? #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @WoodworkGuy That hairball? Not a chance… #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood Matt – a bench hook is so damned simple… and effective… #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood I drilled a hole in a piece of wood to make a guide… #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @TomsWorkbench I agree on the bench hook. I think bench cookies are a bust though. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: Bench Hook article http://t.co/CuKIwkzV #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I took some shelf liner and hockey pucks for bench cookies #woodchat Work pretty well and cheap.

@TomsWorkbench: @uppercutwood I’m with you, Matt. Those gripper/riser things don’t necessary work as advertised. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @TomsWorkbench I had to route some pieces today. Those cookies just don’t work on 4″ wide by 34″ long. Too narrow. #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: @TomsWorkbench this is great thanks for sharing, def will use this #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @WoodworkGuy I have a 2ftby3ft router mat I use when I don’t want things to slip.I can’t see much used for expensive hockey pucks. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: @RhodyFurniture My pleasure. That’s why I love blogging.. helping others. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WoodworkGuy I might make large triangular ones but today I just used the router table instead. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson This piece needed to be lifted so the bearing didn’t rub on the workbench top. #woodchat

@TomsWorkbench: OK, folks, I gotta roll.. the kids are digging presents out from under the tree and shaking them! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @benjamenjohnson I use old, used pucks. don’t buy new ones #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson @WoodworkGuy Glad to hear it from others. Thought I was losing my mind when I couldn’t figure out why I’d need’em #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @TomsWorkbench Take care Tom. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Adios @TomsWorkbench! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood I usually use the router table with pieces that size. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @TomsWorkbench C’ya Tom, I’m out too. Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend with their families. g’night! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @Tooltutor Take care and happy holidays #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor When they first came out,I was offered some bench cookies for free if I’d write a short review. I couldn’t see the use. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: take care Tom @Tomsworkbench #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: the pucks are nice when I need to elevate something to cut with jigsaw or router #woodchat

@JimAAshley: G’night all, happy Holidays to all! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I wouldn’t buy the fancy store types though. they are pricey. #woodchat Mine are old hockey pucks and scrap shelf liner

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson That’s what I did, but routing the ends required extra special safety and tearpout attention #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Yeah, I can see where that would be a problem. #woodchat

@RhodyFurniture: Gnight fella’s and Happy Holiday’s! This was a great first #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Anyone ever used a laser cutter or engraver? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Alright, my son is calling for me, time to call it a night. Merry Christmas all! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: G/night all, time to get the little one out of the bathtub. Transcript within 48 hours (or so). #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Take care and happy holidays! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: take care @benjamenjohnson happy holidays! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood I have. Sorry I missed the #woodchat.
