I had the Guild's wiki page and Timber Framing wikipedia mixed up, but, be as it may here is the link. Click on #5 Disadvantages. I think they are all bogus. Tim

Hi,

I just checked out the link to the Wikipedia pages on Timber Framing and this is escellent and was particularly pleased to find Hume & Son listed on the Timber Engineering pages.

The pages would appear to have been posted by Alex Schreyer. Can anyone provide additional information on this person ?

How does one alter / amend this kind of posting ?

Regards

Ken Hume

again- from the looks of it click 'edit' by the external links and go to it. to add a link, my guess is to match the phrasing of the code and include the url you want to. there's a sandbox to play in to try things out. does anyone know better?

You will need to create an account on Wikipedia.

Edit away! Let me know if you need an assist.

Hi Joel & Toivo,

Thanks for those tips and kind offer of assistance. I read the "about" page on Schreyer's Wiki and he appears to be a very impressive character. His bachelor's thesis was written about the wood / metal interface and following my post made on this site a little while back under "heavy duty scarf joint" I have taken the opportunity to contact him direct to try and learn more. He is a Phd student and lecturer based at UMASS in Amherst and it would be good to encourage him to post in our "on line fold".

Regards

Ken Hume

I have not been able to get past the first page in the tfwiki for many months. Can you?

Thanks;
Jim
