While the basic search capabilities of the forum may suffice for some day-to-day activities, sometimes you cant find what you want and you KNOW it is out there somewhere.

You can use Google to search the forum.
Here are the results of a regular forum search

Here are the results of a Google search of the forum for the same search term.

To use Google:
1. Go to in you web browser
2. Enter the word or phraase you are looking for but before you press <Enter>...
3. Add in the search box after your search words
bloodwood pheasant

You can also search multiple sites at once:
purpleheart OR

If you would prefer a form to fill out for more advanced searches go to:

Could have used it 3 years ago!
Thanks for taking the time.

Funny you mentioned this, I did this search yesterday. The present project I'm working on is a Futuristic Tank and Dale (dhellew2) described a process for building tracks in a post I did on a Excavator I built. I couldn't find it in a search on the Vectric forum so I did a Google search and found it right away. Gary

That is a great tip. I cannot believe after all these years I didn't know about that. Thank you "extremely much"!
