Lyn Mangiameli

Hi Joe, I was wondering the same thing. The last time I saw his name was in a "poll" over on the elite WoW site but there was no date so don't know when he posted it. *note: I threw in the "elite" for George (kidding, George, just kidding) : )
I'm sure Lyn is just very busy with writing turning articles and, more importantly, medical articles.
By the way, Joe, I think about you almost everyday.....when I move that black wood you got for me to make the clam box; I did get it cut in half! Maybe I'll have the clam box done when next we meet. : )

======================= Joe, I remember Lyn having a problem with someone on this group several months back and he said he was leaving us. I guess he did. I miss his product comparisons and tool evaluations. Maybe Fred Holder knows what Lyn's doing now.

I've seen Lyn over on Wood Central..........though not lately. He does have a collection of his articles posted on Fred Holder's site.

Hello All,
I last heard from Lyn on May 18 with this message:
"I've been very ill, the lung stuff just about got me this time. I'm back home again, and hope I get to stay here this time. It's going to be a while before I get back up to speed."
I haven't heard anything more, but did just e-mail for an update of his health. I feel we should all wish him well and speedy recovery. If I hear anything more, I will post an update.

Ruth!
Ditto. My block is setting on the corner of my workbench right where I put it when I got home. I use it as a coaster for soda mostly. One of these days............
African Blackwood, if I recall correctly.
Thanks for the update Fred.

Hello All,
I just received an e-mail from Lyn. He is recovering and graining strength daily, but is still not strong enough to answer all of the e-mails asking where he is. Please give Lyn time to recover and perhaps say a prayer for his speedy recovery. He is hoping to be back with up soon. It the meantime you can read his articles at my web site.

ok, it's time - for those who are new here - I have a few used vacuum pumps for wood turning availalbe on my site, and a reasonably thourough article on the issues involved in setting up a vacuum chuck and choosing a suitable pump.
I also make inexpensive (maybe "low precision" is a better word?) faceplates
you can find this stuff at

along with any other miscellany I've choosen to put out there.

I'll stick my nose in here and say that I go to Bill's site often and have learned a lot there... I also used his pictures and suggestions for making a static bowl sander, which fueled an investment in power sanding... (always seems to lead to more bucks, doesn't it?)
IMHO, I like the fact that a lot of the group here have related commercial endeavors and remind us about them once in a while.. If Bill Grumbine hadn't reminded the group about his bowl turning DVD, I not only wouldn't have known about his great web site,

but I wouldn't of bought his DVD and found out that I have a highly developed turning muscle.. I got a rise in self confidence, knowing that I WAS in good shape.. round IS a shape, right?

You go to Bill Noble's site, or to Bill Grumbines?
I can't agree with you more about being reminded of commercial endeavors. Good stuff.
While I usally don't mind them, I think they are particularly offensive when posted off topic, in the middle of a thread, and especially a thread concerning the welfare of one of the best posting members this group has seen.
It thrills me to no end to find this thread and anxiously go to it to see how Lyn is doing, and thankfully, find out that someone has something for sale, and someone else has been builiding a muscle.
I feel so proud.

In article ,
Robert, when new subject messages are posted within other messages and don't have anything to do with the main thread, I usually attribute it to operator error. I think that's what happened here with Bill Noble's post - I don't think there was any intention to take attention away from the concern over Lyn's health.
The funny posts are the ones in which the person intends the message to be a private email but instead broadcasts it via Usenet. Message bodies like, "Hey Kiddo, Mom and I were out shopping today for sissy's b-day gift and came across an old flame of yours - you'll never guess who! Love, Dad"
Sometimes technology just has too many buttons.

Maybe so. I might be a little sensitive to the subject as Lyn has has been around on this and other venues for years now, furiously typing away his findings and opinions in a very lucid and detailed fashion.
He has helped a great deal of people, myself included, by posting actual qualitative research he has performed for himself on many different subjects related to woodturning.
Best of all as most here know, due to the clarity and confidence of his tone when writing, he had the ability to engender some truly "inspired" and "spirited" threads. All with no profanity or personal shots at anyone.
I will go with you on this one. Operator error. Lord knows I have been guilty of that many a time myself.

"operator error" - apparently the NG engine uses something other than the title to determine if a post is part of a thread or not - you will notice that I changed the title - I hit the "reply" button by accident and just changed the title - some day I'll read the NTTP protocol document and maybe know exactly what happened - on my browser this shows up as a new thread, but apparently not on some others - sigh ..... such is life happy turning bill

I'm not sure what you guys are talking about with Lyn's health??
On my system, (comcast/agent), Bill's post was a new thread from William Noble titled "occasional commercial - vacuum pumps and faceplates"......

Bill, On my system, your thread showed up as part of the Lyn thread, but with a new subject name. If you hit the "Reply" instead on "New post", then it goes into the last thread you were reading. (At least that's how mine works.... I think! (:-) )

"operator error" - (clip) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.
Bill, as one who has made my share of operator errors, I slid into your errant post, thinking, "I must have goofed, but who cares."

Chaz.. Though I agree with most of the above, I really wish that you hadn't of snipped it the way you did... it makes it appear that I was the one complaining..
