    Terry,
    Well done.

    Have you ever listened to the sound of a twin engine aircraft? The harmonic sound of the two engines almost vibrating against each other is unmistakeable. That is the sound in my shop right now as the two carvewrights are both running and harmonizing! I'm test carving a new pattern on Tony's machine and a prototype birdfeeder project on mine.

    Terry,

    Sadden for the loss of your friend Tony. He lives on with you in his CarveWright as you carve with it.
    Happy Carving

I would rather be using it at Tony's house and watching the grin on his face like we used to do, but this is the next best thing. There are several memory cards. Most of them have projects that he made but never got to carve. I guess even 93 years isn't enough time for all the fun we would like to have.
    Oh, Terry! That is so touching!

    Update on Tony's machine.

    For two and a half years Tony's machine has been working away flawlessly. It is my primary machine and takes the brunt of the workload. I haven't done a thing to it in the time I have had it. Sometimes I wonder if Tony isn't tinkering in the shop at night, keeping it tuned up. LOL

    Terry, you are a true winner. It's heart warming to know that there is a still someone on earth with the admirable qualities that you have. Thanks for sharing this story.
