Does anyone want posts about manual skills? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I've been mostly lurking here for a while, and now would like to actively return useful content to others in the forum. If it's not redundant, I can post short articles about skills/techniques that may be important in the near future. Does anyone want to see practical information on subjects such as tool sharpening and tempering, soldering (both electronic and plumbing), framing carpentry, roof repair, and the like? I could also just assemble a page of links to useful techniques, and let you do your own surfing. Please let me know your preferences; I don't want to clutter up the forum, but I'd like to add something worthwhile to the conversation.

Hi Bruce, I think that is a great offer and very practical. I am sure there are many people that can offer practical information on this forum and it would be helpful. Also, I would like to see links so I could search for more information on my own. Mary

Bruce, it would be very worthwhile! Need more practical information. Manual, how-to, old-fashioned common-sense carpentry -- all necessary to increased self-sufficiency.

Don't forget a separate listing for tools! Great idea.

It's a wonderful idea, and very helpful. If you write each one as a self-contained article and you are interested, I'll put them up on one of my web domains for 'eternal future reference' (eternal in this case probably being another 9 months...).
