    Chisels

    Thread Starter: Michael Pyron

    yep, mighty useful tools. I'm at a point in my life where I feel the need to upgrade from the Buck Brother's chisels I've been getting from Home Depot... the issue I see, is that quality chisels have wooden handles, and I use a 12 oz. hammer. I know my hammer VERY well, and since I'm an in...

    Free SawStop Brake

    Thread Starter: Mike Henderson

    I was cutting a small piece of wood and before I knew it the blade was below the table and I had a small cut on my thumb. Don't even know exactly how everything happened. While the piece was small, I'd made the same cut many times before. Anyway, just a nick, bit of blood and a ruined...

    Sharp chisels!

    Thread Starter: Jeff Bartley

    Sharp chisels yes! But not at the end, on the sides. I'm just wondering how many here have been cut up by the edges of their chisels? And does anyone purposely dull the side edges to prevent this? Jeff (with a slice on his index finger!)

    Shaper wire brush head? Does such a thing exist?

    Thread Starter: Peter Quinn

    I'm looking for a wire brush head for a shaper, either metal or abrasive nylon, for texturing open grain wood such as oak or ash. I use a brushing machine at work similar to a drum sander, but it won't do edges of wide boards, and it won't do curves. I know they have sanding heads.....anyone...

    Michael, I feel your pain. I remedied my sharpening by purchasing a second Veritas MKII jig for the job site. Works well for me.

    35 or 55 gal dust bin? Steel or fiber?

    +1 on the 30 gallon galvanized can. The 55 gallon would have been too tall, and really more weight than I want to manhandle when full. My bin sits on

    Chisels

    This is only one of the reasons why I have a set of beater chisels. I would never loan one of my good chisels. Especially not to someone who needed to

    My Grizzly has set screws that you use for adjustments. If you don't have that then soda cans will do. If your board is lifting up off the table then
