    Default Unhappy with the search function ?

    I am new here but I have been reading many threads relating to my machine.
    I have a 9" Workshop circa 1936 as best as I can tell.

    I may be mistaken but I think I read something about people not being happy with the search function on the site and someone suggested using Google Site search.

    I was thinking about that tonight and remembered something from another board.
    It's easier than messing about with Google's advanced search functions.

    So I created a "Custom Search" using Google.
    The search is specific to this subforum on South-bend-lathes.

    If you happen to be having difficulty finding what you are looking for using the site search engine you might try this

    Google Custom Search

    Just copy and paste into the address line of your browser and it should get you there.

    If it does not work feel free to send me a hate filled personal message. I am not sure it works.

    If it DOES work and makes your life better in some way then I am very happy.

    And of course the next step is bookmarking the link for future searches.

    Hopefully I am not breaking any rules here.

    I quit using the forum search feature. Its possible I'm doing something wrong but I have wasted enough time trying to figure it out to not continue with using the forum search.
    I do get some results with search but get more results using google. My google searches usually bring me back to content on the P.M. forum.

    Giving good key words in a search are what get results but the forum search feature gets my thumbs down.

    I don't understand your link. Google works fine. Thanks for your effort anyway.
    Edit; Okay I see now. Thanks

    "Rockauto"- driven off their own DB - is about as good as I've ever found. It's the ease of navigation WITHIN a motorcar and its subsystems WITHOUT suddenly being off-tracked to the irrelevant.

    (MSC? eBay? Do either of you twits ever LISTEN?)
