"One Perfect Part at a Time"

Blog How-To

I just realized I have been posting to this blog for about a year and I never gave any instructions on how readers should respond. Blogs are cool because it can be a two way conversation. You will see a few comments scattered through the pages. There could be a lot more.

I usually write with some intention to stir up response. It is OK to add your own point of view. Blogs are also intended for linking to other sources of information. I try to add links whenever something needs further information. Reader comments can also lead to links or other Blogs.

There is a hesitation for some folks to become involved. It is a bit fearful to know other folks will be reading what you have to say. It is obvious I overcame that phobia long ago. Feel free to jump in even if it is just to say “That’s cool” or “You have got to be kidding!”

This site is run on my server, not a WordPress site. There is no one secretly collecting information about who participates (beside myself) so commenting is not to be feared. I do require some basic identification when making a comment, which is used to control spam. The filters work as this site is not hit hard from canned ham as when I required full registration. At one time I stored over a thousand useless spam registrations.

Every reader can leave a comment when the access is open. Currently the open period is a 7 day time period after I first post an article. Registering to the site is now NOT required and open registration is not even possible. Every comment is held for review before being published.

That means everyone can read and make comments, but little else. Site registration never allowed any other activity than commenting anyway. If you really want to be your own author I can let you know how to set up your own Blog if you want.

This Blog is just my personal doings, but other blogs can be anything from photo displays, to a social medium. Search the term “blog” on any search engine and you will get the idea.

The point I want to leave is that readers are highly encourage to share their thoughts and comments. It is better than a simple one way web-page as a blog is two way. You can talk back to the writer!

  • Hey, Dan’l
    Incredible site. Gonna take a few months to wade thru it. Thanks for all your good work. Really enjoyed the video on making the Taig wrenches. I have had a manual Taig Mill for several years but have not done a lot with it except for some precision drilling. I can see from your video I have been trying to take much deeper cuts than I ought to. Duh! I have had a Taig lathe for over 25 years and have had many hours of pleasure with it. I shall follow your progress on the Kaz steam engine. Kaz taught me to silver solder with his beautifully illustrated photos and drawings. I was very interested in your “turbo” torch. I have a Sievert I invested in some time ago. I need to acquire some smaller tips for it but have not located a distributor in the USA. Is your “turbo” maybe a Sievert under a different brand name. They look quite similar. Thanks for a great site.

  • Hello Bill,

    Yeah, The pile of electronic paper is getting higher and higher. It makes for a long read if you want to get it all. Ha!

    Using the Taig mill with CNC really teaches discipline about feeds and speeds and depth on a small mill. That is unless you enjoy buying new and replacing broken milling bits every day. Hand feed is a lot more forgiving but speed suffers.

    I owned and operated both an HVAC and a roofing business. Lots of experience with torches. Sievert is a good brand and is sold at some US industrial suppliers. Good equipment is always a pleasure to use. As far as I know, the two brands are not compatible at the tip interchange.

    Thanks for saying hello! ~ Dan’l
