    saw plates old VS new

    Thread Starter: Zahid Naqvi

That is why almost all of my tools are rehabbed old tools and some tuned up new tools. Hand saws are one thing I have not played around with much, other than learning...

    Dust is dangerous

    Thread Starter: Brian Henderson

    I ended up getting into a discussion over on YouTube on a video of Adam Savage, of Mythbusters fame, doing woodworking. He was grinding down LDF, which he said had no formaldehyde, and making tons and tons of sawdust with no dust collection and no mask. I pointed out that it was dangerous to do,...

    Canadians Purchasing Tools in the United States

    Thread Starter: Brye Goodspeed

    As a Canadian its difficult to get local suppliers to bring in the variety available in the United States. In some cases the supplier does not offer a CSA Certified version for the Canadian market. Question is, have any Canadians opted to pick up tools state side? If so, what issues if any have...
