    Scratches on End Grain

    Thread Starter: Steve Voigt

    Today I went back to trying to sort out a skew mitre plane that I was working on. The original blade wouldn't hold an edge, and I was getting ugly scratches on end grain. I tried everything, and finally gave up and tried another blade. Still the same problem! I set it aside for a month, but went...

    Our 'Brave New World' with Medical Profiling

    This is not my opinion, it is just sharing an article. The world we knew from five or six decades ago is changing faster than we ever knew. Actuaries predict your life span. Banks track your spending habits. Now, your employer can tell whether you’ll have diabetes a year from now. And the...

    Grizzly vs ClearVue cyclones

    Thread Starter: Mike Suiter

    I'm going to put a cyclone in my new 30x40 shop I'm building and finally retire my HF DC (it just won't die).

    Lie Nielsen A2 issue?

    Thread Starter: Patrick Carpenter

    Has anyone else been a little underwhelmed by A2 plane blades from LN? I have a 60 1/2 block plane that is just awesome in almost every aspect but one. It gets pretty sharp, but does not seem to hold up well at all. Mostly when paring end grain it seems like it never takes more than 5-10 cuts...

    Wood preferences

    Thread Starter: Mike Cozad

    I am/have never been a fan of oak. I have exactly 3 pieces of oak furniture in my house. 1 I built in shop class when I was 11 and didn't know any better. In fact, the shop teacher let me pick white oak for the legs and aprons of the night stand and the drawer front and top are red oak. Other than...

    What to use for mitre bar stock? (Votes: 74)

    1. Anything other than $40 worth of Incra mitre bars is not worthy of your crosscut sled. (Votes: 6)

    2. Not worth $40, but you really should take the time to drill/tap steel bars for your sled. (Votes: 13)

    3. Run what you brung, square the sled to the blade, shoot some brads, countersink, move on. (Votes: 41)

    4. You are over-thinking this in a big way. Nothing to see here, move along. (Votes: 11)

    5. Carrots and peas. (Votes: 3)

    I wholeheartedly agree. Mind you, I think I'm the only one in this thread that thinks it is okay for employers to be more proactive in helping employees

    Rub a yellow wax crayon across the stamping, then wipe the surface clean...it will highlight the maker's markings. An old gunsmith's trick for making

    Sanding between Coats of Finish

    It's always best to use a firm - but not hard - sanding block on flat surfaces. This provides a good balance of keeping a level surface while not being
