    Thanks, never know when these cultural tips will spare an unintentional insult.

    Why would there be any debate or feather-ruffling about something that should obviously be a legislatively-mandated safety feature?

    LOL to everything above.

    My attitude is to defer to Andrew's sensitivities and acknowledge the international difficulties.

    I'm pretty new here, but have already learned much about sharpening from this forum, and I'm in awe of the woodworking skills assembled here.

    In my 65 years of experience, it is the creative, productive people who have the most animated and useful discussions. The last thing I want to do is alienate the very people I'm trying to learn from.

    I can't believe the SS kerfuffle has infiltrated the Neander Forum!

    Maybe I should get busy and invent the ChiselStop.

    I'm on it.

    But you're going to have to plug it in.

    It would be nice is some of you guys could invent the lip zipper. Yeah, I stuffed up with the interpretation what was being communicated to me. I apologised to Andrew for it. That you wish to continue dragging my mistake through the mud tells me a great deal about some of those I am dealing with on this forum. One in particular, that I had a great deal of respect for with his traditional approach to his work. Don't bother replying to this post gents.

    regards;

    Oh for Heavens sake. Lighten up. It isn't about you. It's about the situation.

    There is another expression:

    Sometimes you eat the bear, Sometimes the bear eats you.

    You didn't make a mistake! How could you have known?

    Stewie, I'm going to be sincere here for a moment.

    You didn't make a mistake. Miscommunications happen, and we all laugh and move on. Being able to joke about it (as we are here) is part of that process. Groups that don't do that become dysfunctional in a hurry.

    Nobody is laughing at your expense right now, especially not after you opened up in the "good for the soul" thread. It takes courage to do that.

    OK, back to our regularly scheduled menu of pointless debates and good (?) natured trolling.

    Stewie, no offense was intended. I was attempting to lighten the mood, and apparently working in vain.
