OWWM.com is now: VintageMachinery.org!

Happy New Year!  With this New Year, we are excited to share with you our new web site address - vintagemachinery.org! 

The first question many will ask is why the change?  As many of you have probably noticed, over the past few months, the OWWM web site has been going through some major changes - and the change this is most evident to most is the expansion of the scope of this web site from only woodworking machinery to also include metalworking machinery as well as antique steam and gas engines.  With these changes, we felt that a new name that better identified the new scope of the site was in order. 

Secondly, there has always been a lot of confusion between the OWWM discussion forums at OWWM.org and this site at OWWM.com - while this may not seem like a big deal to our members who have been here for many years, new members have always had trouble with this and assume that when they register on one OWWM site that they are also registered on the other.  On average, we answer a dozen or so emails a week from frustrated users who cannot understand why they cannot log into one site or the other - and that does not even count the many who I am sure never even bother sending an email and who instead are just so frustrated that they leave.

While we at VintageMachinery.org understand that many in our core group of members don't always embrace change, we do feel that the time is right to make this change.  Please do not think or assume that this is an attempt to break away from OWWM Discussion Forums, of which this site has been associated with since our origin nearly ten years ago.  That is not the case at all - we look forward to many more years of partnering with the OWWM Discussion Forums.  But with the expansion of our scope to other types of vintage machinery, we also plan to strategically partner with other forums in the future in order to expand our content even further.

While our name may be changing, our core mission is not.  As always, we at VintageMachinery.org will continue to strive be your primary source of information on all types of Vintage Machinery!

The VintageMachinery.org web site is devoted to information on the history, restoration and use of vintage woodworking machinery. Compiled through the generous contributions of content by thousands of dedicated members, the Vintage Machinery web site contains information concerning vintage machinery including: •Historical information on every known manufacturer of wood-working and metal-working machinery as well as steam and gas engines in North America in the Manufacturers Index
•Downloadable publications of historical catalogs, manuals and other documents in Publication Reprints
•Photos of vintage machines owned and restored by our members in the Photo Index
•Technical Information on the restoration and use of vintage machinery in the Vintage Machinery Wiki/Knowledge Base

Worked for me Harlan. Not sure why you had trouble -- maybe rusty has an idea about that.
