    Heat damage to blades when grinding...

    Thread Starter: ian maybury

    Brian's thread on choice of chisels just set me thinking. I'd always thought it was just that I was using cheap chisels, but it starts to look like even good quality chisels sail pretty close to the wind so far as edge damage is concerned when working hardwoods.

    Safety poll: Do you use the guard on your tablesaw?

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    It will seem nuts to some of you, but Ive never used a tablesaw that has a guard. Every one has always been just "bare blade". I occasionally use a home made splitter. Im thinking its time to mend my ways before I get hurt and have to mend my hand. But I got curious and wanted to poll the community...

    An awful counterfeit

    Thread Starter: Patrick Bernardo

    Based on the recent thread on beading tools, I decided to go over to that auction site and see what was available. I stumbled across item # 141447650273. Somebody is trying to turn around a quick $75 by spray-painting an old Stanley 'bronze' and engraving it with the words "Lie Nielsen." I...
