Try and keep it civil guys. For the most part this board will have little moderation, however, if something is locked or removed you went to far.

No New Posts Discuss it all here for the GG guys

Hopefully, this board will be temporary. There are a few guys here that are not Machinist type guys and are mainly here because the replacement Garage Gazette site is not yet up. My thoughts are if you are one of those guys and you want to discuss all the normal wrench bender stuff we used to discuss at TGG we can just discuss all of that stuff here for the time being. Once the new site is online I will probably end up deleting this section as it is unrelated to Machinist activities. So stuff like a long project thread would not be a good idea for this little board here. I hope you refugees like this idea.
