This thread has some great information. Bbauman I see you've contributed most of the links to this thread so I hope you don't mind if I borrow  some of them. I want to start a similar thread in the You Can Do It and General Posts Sections. I really like how your first post created categories and then listed several related links after them. If additional links could be added right on the first post it would make finding the subjects much easier. As other members have added links it starts to get more difficult to quickly find the topic you're looking for. I posted some suggestions on creating a quick reference section like this as I think a quick reference for projects and FAQ's would be a big help to all members.
 
Thanks for starting this thread.

bfessler - thanks for reminding me how much I appreciate the helpfulness of others in this club and the knowledge they've contributed to making my experience in this hobby much more enjoyable. That's what I feel is one of the most valuable benefits of this message board - all the experienced and helpful people on it. I have moved all of the links posted in this thread to the top and tried to organize them a bit so that the links kind of relate to each other.

Just a thought....
 
I have looked all over for something like this I am sure that there are also several people looking for this kind of information. 
 
Is there any way to set up a sticky of this post on the general  Discussion tab?
 
I am new to SW and having an easy place to fine just about everything is way cool.  that way if I need to ask something I can feel like I did my part to research my question first.
