    DIY air filtration unit for <$200

    Thread Starter: Dan Hintz

    As payback to the lasering community, I'm sharing my "plans" (such as they are) for everyone to copy. Well, not so much "plans" as pictures of the completed unit, but it should be obvious how to recreate something similar. Due to poor planning on my part and a lack of any real sleep, I made one...

    popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/chris-schwarz-blog/observation-vintage-handplanes Actually I don't really have an opinion about this. I live in ignorant bliss regarding new planes.

    Tapered vs Krenov/Hock vs Japansese Style irons

    Thread Starter: Pedro Reyes

    At some point I would like to make a plane out of Beech, not a Krenov lamination but a traditional one. I know Lee Valley sells some nice tapered irons, and that most (if not all) traditional planes had this style, using wedge mortises (sides) . The Krenov style, has straight blade/cap iron...

    Chain Saw Recommendations

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a bit of area to clearcut and am wondering what chainsaw you folks recommend. My little Husqvarna 435 seems overwhelmed by the experience. All the green is honeysuckle and some of the trees are very large in diameter. All two acres needs to evaporate. Thanks for your thoughts and ideas. ...

    Living "Off the Grid"

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a friend who believes he lives "off the grid" though he does have electricity. He lacks a phone and water. Today is tax day and he hasn't filed in nearly a decade. Of course, he doesn't earn enough to file. Lives on a small "farm" where he piddles around and doesn't get much accomplished. In...

    100 Watt Vs 80 Watt

    It can never hurt to ask a question here, but I think you are going to have to answer this one yourself. What do you use your laser for? Like Kev, I do

    Felder FB610 vs Minimax MM24

    I purchased the FB 610 for my shop. While I can't compare it to the MM machines I can say that I have been more than pleased with my new band saw. Compared

    The Sacrilege!

    The framing pros I have seen that make a living with a hammer (not a gun) are not taking 4 or 5 swings to drive a nail.
