    DIY air filtration unit for <$200

    Thread Starter: Dan Hintz

    As payback to the lasering community, I'm sharing my "plans" (such as they are) for everyone to copy. Well, not so much "plans" as pictures of the completed unit, but it should be obvious how to recreate something similar. Due to poor planning on my part and a lack of any real sleep, I made one...

    The Sacrilege!

    popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/chris-schwarz-blog/observation-vintage-handplanes Actually I don't really have an opinion about this. I live in ignorant bliss regarding new planes.

    Tapered vs Krenov/Hock vs Japansese Style irons

    Thread Starter: Pedro Reyes

    At some point I would like to make a plane out of Beech, not a Krenov lamination but a traditional one. I know Lee Valley sells some nice tapered irons, and that most (if not all) traditional planes had this style, using wedge mortises (sides) . The Krenov style, has straight blade/cap iron...

    Chain Saw Recommendations

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a bit of area to clearcut and am wondering what chainsaw you folks recommend. My little Husqvarna 435 seems overwhelmed by the experience. All the green is honeysuckle and some of the trees are very large in diameter. All two acres needs to evaporate. Thanks for your thoughts and ideas. ...

    Living "Off the Grid"

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a friend who believes he lives "off the grid" though he does have electricity. He lacks a phone and water. Today is tax day and he hasn't filed in nearly a decade. Of course, he doesn't earn enough to file. Lives on a small "farm" where he piddles around and doesn't get much accomplished. In...

    100 Watt Vs 80 Watt

    And yeah that's the main question. I cut (and do a good bit of it) around 20ms and if the 100 Watt will take it up to 30ms... then yeah no thanks. But

    Felder vs Minimax shaper

    Your right about not getting into a really nice new Martin for $22k, but an SCM may be doable? I might also think about adding a classic industrial shaper
