    Well, you big WUSS, how you gonna breakdown on camera and not edit it out before airing? LOL!!! The lead up had me wondering what was up with he hiatus, then as you read the e-mail it becomes clear. I'm not overly funded in my woodworking budget, however after following the PHP I would gladly offer to continue my duel membership while the Hand Tool Workshop is suspended as long as the extra money goes into supporting the Purple Heart Project anonymously. Who'd of thought this simple idea would have had the impact it's having? Our greatest success is always in our service to others. Good on you!!

    Rob,

    I had to throw my two cents worth in about the ending of the Hand tool workshop. First off I have to say that what you are doing with the Purple Heart workshop is to be commended. I was a Viet Nam vet and I know first hand what it is like to come home and not really be accepted.  We have no problem now telling the returning vets "Thanks for your service". Its not enough. We have to find more ways to help these young men and women get back to a normal life. The Purple Heart workshop does just that.

    I just have to share my thoughts on the final hand tool project . The Saw Horse. I have been a member of your on line workshops, both power and hand tool for going on a year. I followed the saw horse project from start to finish. I also have to say that I have learned so much about how to use and maintain the tools for these projects. I must share my thoughts on what tool sticks in my mind from this project. They hand cranked drill.  Ah what can I say about this little gem? Its a "POS !!!! Every time you picked it up I would just cringe. I have to believe that you must qualify for your own Purple Heart by now. I would have filed this fine tool in the river.

    Rob all kidding aside you and your great team make us proud.

    Hey Rob,

    Let me first say that I and many others, I'm sure, are totally behind you on the decision to put the hand tool workshop on hold. The purple heart project is way too important. 

    On that note, if I have the option, please transfer any refund I might have from the hand tool workshop (no access needed to it, I have most of them memorized) and transfer it to the purple heart project.

    Keep up the great work, and please extend my thanks to Jake, the Colonel and anyone else helping you

    #1 Purple heart Project. Behind you all the way on this.

    #2 The hand crank drill. Just a little humor. No offense meant .

    I got a good laugh from this one Tom, I must do it to challenge myself on not swearing!  Oh the temptation to grad the cordless!

    Frick fixed that problem Maz.  And thank you for all the help you have given and continue to give the PHP.  So many  of you guys have stepped up to the plate when I have asked for your help, it is truly humbling.  I thank you in behalf of our 44 wounded Vets.  I plan to grow this number as long as I am breathing.  see you all soon.

    Hi Rex, I have decided to put the Hand tool workshop on hiatus for awhile.  We will keep it alive under a new title "Robs Hand tool Video Library", there will be no new episodes for now.  Our ongoing workshop will be called "Robs Online Workshop", it will continue with three episodes per week.  After 7 years and with the growing demands and needs of our PHP, I cant keep up with two workshops and 5 episodes per week.  I would rather do a better job on 3 and be able to do a great job on the PHP as well as taking care of our ever growing business.  The latter is what allows us to take care of the PHP.  Also we are moving into a new shop in the near future and that will throw a monkey wrench or two into the gears.  cheers

    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    Is the $19.95 price the new price for the new hand tool video library? You mentined $15 in #37 saw horse video. Just checking to see what the correct price is going to be. Thank you for helping my fellow vets.
