    Close-Up and Personal Look at the NEW Lie-Nielsen PLOW PLANE

    Thread Starter: Karl Fife

    Here are a few pictures I took of the much-anticipated Lie Nielsen Plow Plane (Plough Plane) while at Handworks 2015 in Amana, Iowa. Apparently I can only put 8 pictures in a post, so I'll reply to my own post with four more. As you know, this tool is based on the Miller's...

    Buying a portable generator

    Thread Starter: Dave Lehnert

    I am long overdue buying a portable generator for emergency use. I have put off buying because I don't know much about them. I have narrowed my choice down to two because.......... 1) Price. This is the price range I like for something that may get used once in 5 years. 2) I have a friend...
