    Chinese laser purchase/Shenui/Laserworks tips and tricks thread

    Thread Starter: Rodne Gold

    Considering a lot of us are going or have gone that direction , I thought it a good idea to combine our knowledge pool in one thread. So I have started one. Those of you that have already posted to other threads can perhaps repeat and consolidate the posts here or at least point to other posts on...

    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. My white steels don't much like...

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    More Beech Plane Ideas?

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    I've got some beech left, enough to make two more planes. I think I'll probably make another jointer with the one stick because I don't have the heart to cut it down. With the other, I'm either going to save it to make a few dais, or make another jack sized plane. I don't want to make pointless...
