    Recommendation for new dovetail saw?

    Thread Starter: Pat Barry

    I want to get a new dovetail saw to replace my existing backsaw for dovetail cutting. The current saw is a standard backsaw (Pennsylvania Saw Corporation #78, 12ppi, 12" long, 3" deep). I also have another even larger backsaw and a Zona universal razor saw. I'd like something easier to control...

    And now time for a few "Cold ones" First off, The Boss wanted a blind on the backdoor repaired with a new one.....New one needed those clips down at the bottom, to keep it from flopping around, used self-drilling drywall screws into the steel skin of the door...and had the driver tip drill into...

    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!)

    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...

    2016 - new JET 1640EVS lathe

    While it is commendable to see manufacturers refreshing their product lines, I'm not convinced that the wider industry is really making much progress

    It may also be a matter of not wanting to carry more items in a tool box. The hammer has other uses. A mallet would require a space that may not be available.
