I haven't joined the local group http://www.saskwoodguild.ca/ but
they're open to everyone...

"The Saskatchewan Woodworkers' Guild welcomes any new members with an
interest in working with wood."

The membership list isn't publicly available on their web site, so I
don't know how many belong.

This is from David Eisen

Dear New User,

** Welcome to rec.woodworking, known locally as the wreck **

This is an informal group with users of all levels of knowledge, from those
who have yet to pick up a tool, professional woodworkers, authors of books
on woodworking, woodworking magazine editors, principals of tool companies,
and every level in between.

One of the traditions of Usenet Newsgroups (NG) that is encouraged, is the
tradition of "lurking", or hanging around for a while, taking in the local
culture before posting to the NG. While not mandatory, it is asked that you
just sit back and read the NG for a short time before your first posting.
This will allow you to become familiar with how things are done in this neck
of the woods, become familiar with the locals, etc.

This group is a collection of people with a common interest in woodworking
(ww'ing), and as such the topics discussed sometimes wander away from
strictly ww'ing. Think of this NG as if you were having a number of friends
over to your shop to discuss ww'ing, 90% of the discussion will revolve
around ww'ing, but you will also discuss other things going on in your life,
like your shop dog dying, gloating about the vintage minty fresh Unisaur you
just got for $100, just got a new job, etc. That is what we do in this NG.

Please DO NOT post off topic. If you *MUST* make an off topic post, please
preface the subject with "[OT]", so those who are not interested in OT posts
can skip them..

NOTE: I have recently been receiving a lot of flack from the cabal regarding
the preceding paragraph. Apparently, a few of them think I am encouraging OT
posts, I am not, I am simply providing a way of distinguishing them so those
who want to skip them can, or even put OT in their kill file if they wish.

If you find yourself being referred to as a "newbie", don't take offence; it
is not a derogatory term, but a statement of fact.

Sometimes some members of this NG can be a little harsh, take it in stride,
put on your Nomex underwear and fire back. The timid don't survive NG's for
very long. But be polite, this is one of the few NG's left on Usenet where
decorum is still the common practice rather than the exception.

One resource that is even greater than this NG is this NG's archives. Every
message posted here is stored on Deja.com (now http://groups.google.com/).
Many knowledgeable wreckers no longer post on topics asked every other day,
because of the repetitive nature. If you want the most in depth answer to
your question, check Deja, if you do not get all the information you
require, then post your question to the NG.

Another useful Search Engine is Usenet Replayer, http://usenet-replayer.com
..

** A note on Trolls **

People, when will you learn, *PLEASE* do not reply to the trolls, leave them
under their pitiful bridge to starve. And they will starve, and go away if
you stop feeding them with your replies.

** How to use Nfilter(AKA NewsProxy) to filter out Trolls and other useless
crap **

Nfilter is used successfully by wreck members using the following O.S.'s -
Win98se, XP Home, XP Pro, Win2K, and Win2K Advanced Server.

1. Download & install NewsProxy from http://www.nfilter.org/
Basic instructions are at http://www.nfilter.org/faq.html#2.2

*** The Nfilter web site is gone! ***

Robert Bonomi has been kind enough to host the program for us wreckers,
click the link to get a copy of Nfilter and some other useful info,

http://www.r-bonomi.com/rec.woodworking/index.html

Thank you Robert.

*** ***

2. Copy the "NewsProxy" shortcut from - C:\Program Files\NewsProxy\
To - C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\
[this is for Win98se, modify this to suit your OS.]

3. If you are using Outlook Express. Start OE. Right click on your news
folder
(not rec.ww - you want the main news folder) and select Properties.
Select the Server tab. Copy the information from the Server Name box.
Enter "localhost" (without the quote marks) in the Server Name box.
Some O.S.'s may require you use 127.0.0.1 in the Server Name box.
Select the Advanced tab and make sure that News(NNTP): is set to 119.
Click OK.

4. In NewsProxy. Select Edit | Configuration | Network tab. In the "Server
Name
or IP Number" box - paste the information from Server Name you copied in
step 3.
Nfilter *IS* case sensitive for the criteria in nfilter.dat. By enabling
Regular Expressions
you can avoid having to enter all permutations of upper & lower cases into
the
nfilter.dat file.
Select the General tab and check "Enable Regular Expressions". Click OK.
Select Edit | Filters. Click File | Save As
Change FileName to nfilter.dat.old Click Save.
Delete all the existing lines. Copy the following section,
from "Start Nfilter..." to "End", to the file & be sure not
to leave any blank lines in the file.
Click File | Save As
FileName = nfilter.dat Click Save.

# Start Nfilter.dat list
# Any line that starts with a # is a comment line and will be ignored.
# Blank lines are a no no.
# This list requires that "Enable Regular Expressions" be turned on.
# In NewsProxy Click Edit | Configuration and check the
# Regular Expressions box.
#
#Drop 3 or more xposts
rec.woodworking Drop xref:[^:]*:[^:]*:[^:]*:.*

# End NFilter.dat list

Any time you edit the nfilter.dat file be sure you Save it, then close
NewsProxy

and restart it. This will cause it to read the new nfilter.dat file. Note:
there is
no need to close your newsreader (ie Outlook Express) when doing this.

Here's a quick primer on Regular Expressions.
Using the example expression .*[Pp][Uu][Pp]+[Yy].*
[Pp] will match one letter of either upper or lower case P.
[Pp]+ will match any number of letters of either upper or lower case P.
So the above will match: Puppy, Pupy, PuPpY, pUPPPPPPPy, etc.
A dot (".") will match any single character. And ".*" will match any number
of any characters.
Spaces are not ignored and are a valid matching character.
[Pp][Uu] [Pp]+[Yy] (note the space between the U&P) will not match "Puppy"
but will match "Pu ppy".

For more information on Regular Expressions go to:
http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/helpsheets/regex.html or
http://sitescooper.org/tao_regexps.html

Using the above as a guide it is simple to add a new rule, but you may want
to test it first by using Flag instead of Drop. For example, to test for
"asshole"
anywhere in the subject line use:
rec.woodworking Flag:ASSHOLE= subject:.*[Aa][Ss]+[Hh][Oo][Ll][Ee].*
Once it works to your satisfaction replace "Flag:ASSHOLE=" with "Drop".

Please use one of the test groups (ie alt.test) for testing Subjects. You
just need to change rec.woodworking to alt.test and have at it.
Alternatively
you could unsubscribe from rec.woodworking and then resubscribe. This will
give
you the actual posts from the current crop of idiots to test the From,
nntp-posting-host, or message-id functions.

CAUTION: With Regular Expressions enabled, the rule in the original
nfilter.dat file = rec.woodworking drop xref:*:*:*:* will cause ALL posts
to be dropped.

ADDITIONAL EXAMPLES from wreck users:

#Drop 2 or more xposts
rec.woodworking Drop xref:[^:]*:[^:]*:.*

#Drop any post from known troll posting hosts (as of Oct-2003)
rec.woodworking Drop nntp-posting-host:.*65\.149\.76
rec.woodworking Drop nntp-posting-host:.*63\.159\.116
rec.woodworking Drop nntp-posting-host:.*206\.216\.55
rec.woodworking Drop nntp-posting-host:.*206\.216\.[456]
rec.woodworking Drop nntp-posting-host:.*205\.184\.1[23456789]

#Drop the current trolls (as of Oct-2003)
rec.woodworking drop

rec.woodworking drop path:.*{{servername}}

**** Filtering with Extreme Prejudice ****
Things have got out of hand on the wreck with a few morons posting through
Google. As such, I have decided to remove all posts from Google.com. This is
an extreme measure and decide for yourself if you want to add the following
line to your Nfilter.dat rules.
rec.woodworking drop

You should be able to see from those examples how to add additional rules to
drop messages with certain words in the subject or from specific users. If
you have any questions, please reply to this message.

5. If you are running a firewall like ZoneAlarm you will need to enable
NewsProxy to function as a server.

6. If your ISP requires you to login, Nfilter requires no special set up. It
will
pass the login information from your newsreader to your ISP/News Server.


7. For using Nfilter with multiple servers. See
http://www.geocities.com/d4vidb/x_setup11.html


*** A special thankyou to Art, AKA the Wood Butcher for his help installing
Nfilter, It works, go get it and install it now. ***

** Answers to VERY common questions **
(my personal summations)

- Is Grizzly any good?
The consensus would seem to be that Grizzly is a little hit and miss. The
price is right, but the fit and finish will not be up to par with Jet and
Delta. Sometimes you will get a Lemon. Waiting over a month for delivery is
not uncommon.

- Where can I get plans?
See some links at the bottom of this message

- Where can I get plans for a router table?
See above.

- Jet vs. Delta?
At this time it seems that both are excellent products, with Jet having the
edge in value.

- What is SWMBO? (or DAMHIKT or BTDT or POS, etc.)
See link at bottom to full rec.woodworking FAQ.

- Should I buy a Craftsman power tool?
No.

- Should I use PVC pipe for compressed air lines?
http://www.osha-slc.gov/dts/hib/hib_...b19880520.html

- This newsgroup should be split.
A subject that has been beaten to death. The wreck will remain the way it
is. This NG has been pick choose for a while; simply skip over what does not
interest you.

- How do I stain Cherry?
You don't.

- What is the proper finish for a cutting board?
Mineral Oil.

- How do I protect cast iron tabletops from rust?
Plain 'ol Johnson's paste floor wax.

- Who or What are the Borg? (courtesy of John Moorhead)
Collectively, BORG is any of the big box home improvement centers that
resemble the BORG (short for cyborg - a melding of robot and human or other
species) "Cube" space vessels in "Star Trek the next generation" - they come
into town and assimilate (read: wipe out) the small, medium and sometimes
large local hardware/lumber/home improvement stores. Also specifically,
Home Depot as an acronym Big Orange Retail Giant. - You have been
assimilated. - Locutus

Ours has a somewhat general requirement that the member is breathing and that
their work has somewhat a resemblance to wood.

If you response, what size is your group?

Yea, all the good you do, nobody remembers. All the bad, nobody forgets...

Reminds me of the time a buddy of mine put a new motor in a race car and had
problems with it bogging down coming off the line. Once it got up some
speed, it had all kinds of torque ... It ended up being the crankshaft was
the problem. The motor came out of a boat...

We still play "Anchors Away" into his answering machine to this day... AND
tease him about some great deal a guy had on a trailer for it...a boat
trailer...grin He will never live that one down... The guy who sold him
the motor was the brother of a well known NASCAR team owner who really
should have known better...

Now THAT is a loaded question. Our numbers are legion. Our quality of work
ranges from a bad toothpick maker to beautiful works of art. You don't

have
to be crazy but it helps. It also helps to have a thick skin and a very

good
sense of humor.

And send me your credit card number so I can auto deduct your daily dues

Hope this answers your questions -

Vic

the problem. The motor came out of a boat...

We still play "Anchors Away" into his answering machine to this day... AND
tease him about some great deal a guy had on a trailer for it...a boat
trailer...grin He will never live that one down... The guy who sold him
the motor was the brother of a well known NASCAR team owner who really
should have known better...

Does your woodworking club have membership guidelines or requirements

that
address participation or quality of work? If you response, what size

is
your
group? GCS



Now THAT is a loaded question. Our numbers are legion. Our quality of

work
ranges from a bad toothpick maker to beautiful works of art. You don't

have
to be crazy but it helps. It also helps to have a thick skin and a very

good
sense of humor.

And send me your credit card number so I can auto deduct your daily dues

Hope this answers your questions -

Vic

BRuce responds:

yes, now please multiply 3 1/2 by purple and those are the yearly dues. :-)

PS, it doesn't matter what color you use the answer is always 42.


But only when the calendar chimes three times.

So I asked a straight question and I got I'm not sure what, with a few
exceptions. Maybe it has been a bad weather weekend and too many of us have
spent too much time..... oh what the hell. Thanks to those who made a
response to my question. It seems that like most groups, 20% of the folks do
the work for themselves and the other 80%. Wish we could get past that. GCS

Really I think maybe you should go back and see what it
was you originally posted. Now had you posted something
like this:



Hello,

I'm interested in knowing of the woodworkers here who belong
to local groups or guilds how many (insert balance of
question here regarding qualifications and requirements of
the guild/group)...



You see, with the way you'd stated your question most people
thought you were asking about qualifications for membership
to this group (rec.wood).

Does that help to clear things up/smooth over some
feathers/dislodge and bugs?

By the way, I think the intent of your inquiry was a good
one and would have been a good subject for the group to
discuss. Feel free to re-ask, this time with some clarity.
