When I buy mine I'm going to Carter Tools, for the simple fact that on his Ordering Info page he says "I will always be available for technical help via. e-mail whether you ordered from me or bought it elsewhere." and that says A LOT about the kind of Person he is and care/interest he has in the product.  I work Sales at an Online Music Store and we are told to turn down Tech Support if they didn't buy from us (even if we legitimately know the answer) I usually help anyway.

Nick Carter is the man when it comes to Taig tools.  When I was getting set up originally, he took the time to actually talk to me about what I was doing.  Add to that, his consistent involvement in the Taig community (his website and Yahoo group) where he's always available for help.  If I had to put it into yoyo terms, he's the Takeshi of the Taig community.

I link this thread all the time.. can we please get it as a sticky? It's silly for me to have to tell people to go search for it..

You can argue with me if you want... but you'll still be wrong.

I was thinking the same thing. When I made the "List of trustworthy modders" for that forum I was expecting some delay and a couple people asking for a sticky but no sooner had I made it than it was stickied.

It was stickied then it wasn't but it is now here:
http://www.yoyonation.com/talk/index.php/topic,57526.0.html

I think it's a nice way to do it, really cleans things up a bit.

Any one who is intending to start a topic to ask the question "what lathe should i buy"

should likely read the phrase "please read before starting a new topic"

i told in another post already that i think it is a good idea.

Just clarify the title a bit. "Must read" doesnt help getting us to read it. I know, silly, but its true.

Use "Modding rules and extensive list of very helpful topics - If you read this you will have a *yoyo* on each finger by the end of the week" or something in the vein of that.

People will be getting the hang of it soon,i guess, but its always hard to adapt to something new...

I think its fine as it is now, if it emerges as a problem that people aren't reading it I will change it
