That is because it was set up to require more than three letters. Maybe the administrator should change it since there are a lot of 3 letter abbreviations used here.

Yep. That would certainly help. Even when you spell it out, the posts that come up, you have to pretty much read into each one to find any info. Maybe my search skills need tuned up. I know there are numerous ways to get the answer I'm looking for, but navigation could be improved. Not a huge deal. Just saying... Mostly, I have been finding most UEG posts/threads in the 'rip sizer' category.

Sometimes it's fruitful to go to the sub forum and look through the past messages to get hints.

The other thing I do because of the limitation of the forums search function is go to Google, type in tracksawforum as well as the term you are looking for, such as UEG. That can get you some better results.

Jack,

You can do a Google search of the forum by going to the Search drop-down.

Also if you know who posted, you can go to advanced search and specify terms and username.

Thanks Dik, I'm aware of that and you're right, I probably should have put it that way. I usually have a google tab open so it's often easier to just tab over and go.

Maybe it's worth repeating an old post about site specific google searches. The following was lifted from a post by "Lex"

You can use Google to search any site on the Internet, using this technique:

type your search string as normal in Google, then append the phrase site:tracksawforum.com and Google will only return results that match your search, in the given site. For example, copy and paste the line below into a Google search box:

makita 5900 site:tracksawforum.com
------------------------------------------

For another example, I wanted to find the post I copied above, so I typed the following in the google search bar:

google search site:tracksawforum.com

And I'll add my thanks to Lex, as I use this frequently
