    Hi Ed

    I'm uploading the pics only if somebody asks me.
    By now, Redhak asked to upload the pics of a few posts and I did.

    That's why I said that it's better to reply to the post with the missing pics and that, will bring the post to the "front line" so, I will see it, and also others.

    Regards
    niki

    Nikki,

    Please let us know which threads you're uploading pictures to. We'd probably be interested in re-visiting them. A new thread for updating the pics would might work well.

    You'll kill me
    But you know...it's a very good idea...you get free tools from the best makers...like Norm, "I take MY Makita...and for that, I'm going to use MY DeWalt" etc.(is he already getting tools from Festool?)

    When the guys will see my face...they'll switch-off the TV

    Thank you all for your so kind words

    As Redhak said, I know that the pictures of many old posts disappeared (together with my Photobucket album).

    Please don't hesitate to send me a PM to "resurrect" them or better, just reply to the post you are interested in, something like "niki, re-download the bloody pics"...this will bring the post to the "front" and I will see it immediately...and act accordingly...

    Oh, and if you'll wait some 10~15 years...I'll write this book

    Thanks

    I've always tried to make a point of thanking Niki for his posts as they're always worth looking at. Well done mate.

    Niki:
    Your posts are AMAZING! Your approach to shop problems is simple and elegant. You really should publish a book on your jigs and fixtures.

    A very 'thanksgiving' thread, neat.

    I have subscribed to a bunch of Niki's threads, makes it easier to refer to them; by now he knows, as I've requested him to fix the pictures for some of those. Thanks again, Niki - for your ingenuity, and for the effort you put in presenting it to us.

    And now that reminded me of the Hold-down thread, need to add that too : which means you'd be getting more PMs for thread-pictures, Niki .

    This is an excellent thread, C-Man. Nikki deserves all the "attaboys" one person can get. His ideas are excellent, and his presentation of "how to do it" leave nothing to be desired. His ideas are something that make the job easier, safer, faster, and easier on the wallet.These are things we all welcome.

    I don't know anyone who hasn't been impressed and helped by Nikki's posts. A big "Thanks Nikki" for taking you time to such a great job of clear presentations. Also, a big thanks to CM for doing the right thing and bringing what we already knew to the forefront. Sometimes we need someone to step forward and say (or post) what we're all thinking. So, a second thanks to CM for originating the post!

    I have picked up many ideas from your posts, Niki, so CM is right: you deserve a big thank you!

    Thank you so much Cabinetman

    I met Cabinetman, long time ago on other, smaller forum and he was almost the only one that replied to my posts there.

    One of the jigs is actually the idea of Cabinetman...
    When I posted the "Feather board - Feather rollers", Cabinetman asked "and what about Hold down rollers" and that how the idea of the Hold-down rollers was born.
    I use the hold-down rollers almost for every rip cut and every time they remind me that Cabinetman was actually the inventor and I thank him every time I use them...so easy to push even 6~8' boards without even looking, I know that the board is kept on the fence...

    Yes, it takes some time to prepare a post but knowing that it will help even one person and your so kind replies, turns it from work, to pleasure...

    Many pics of my first post disappeared together with my Photobucket album...I assume that most of you saw them but if somebody want's to see the missing pics, just tell me, by PM or directly on the post and I will re-load the pics.

    I would like to thank all the forum members for the so kind comments to my posts, it's a real pleasure to be here.

    Best Regards
    niki

    eloquently put CB! his work is amazing, and no doubt the time he puts into everything for us. that is why THIS is the only site i visit. the people here are like a family. and the exception family members should be recognized. thanks for the thread!

    this is the reason why at tone time, i suggested that his post should go into the tutorial sections. he literally shows you how to build from scratch.

    niki, i'll take the 2nd autographed copy.
