    Source for high-angle toothing plane?

    Thread Starter: Patrick Chase

    After Stewie's gentle prompting in another thread, I've gone off and read everything I could find on the topic, and realized that my exposure to toothing planes is grossly incomplete, limited as it is to toothed blades for low-angle BU planes. I'm therefore interested in acquiring a high-angle (80+...

    Sharpening frustration - I need a one-size-fits-all method

    Thread Starter: Mike Dowell

    Hey everyone! I need to sharpen my chisels and I'm frustrated.

    Toolchest Lid-Mounted Tools

    Thread Starter: Stanley Covington

    Sawmill Creek is flowing sluggishly under the ice today, so I thought I would post something. Some of you may recall my mentioning in a post a year or so ago that I was reworking the methods of mounting tools inside the lid of my old toolchest. My day job has kept me very busy since then, but I...

    Ouch--Getting Saw Stop

    Thread Starter: Ed Gibbons

    veneer work and other questions


    Your work is very fine. Can you give a link to or description of the specific clear laminate you use? It sounds worth trying.

    Ouch--Getting Saw Stop

    If I had the money and the space, I'd have both a SawStop and a slider. But space is a real problem (well, money is also a problem) so I stick with my
