    The One Stone Challenge

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    Maybe more of a challenge for everyone else, I've pretty much been following it already. But by the one stone challenge, I mean picking one stone (that you already have) that you will use for your entire sharpening process, and using it for everything (all of your planes, all of your chisels)....

    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...

    Show Us Your Hand Tool Organizers

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    Pegboard lines he walls of the garage/shop but those organizers leave quite a bit to the imagination. Can some of you folks show photos of the organizers you use for hanging small hand tools on walls and such. Almost anything has to be an improvement over the little metal hanging clips on pegboard....

    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. ...

    Very Super Cool Table Saw Fence...

    Thread Starter: Derek Arita

    Any have or are familiar with the Very Super Cool Tools table saw fence? Saw the Wood Whisperer do a little vid on them, so I took a look at the web site. Looks really neat. It's supposed to be dead flat, adjustable and versatile. I'd love to hear some feedback from someone who uses one.

    Felder vs Minimax shaper

    I looked at the literature for the new 900 and it looks to have some mass added. It has basically the same internals as the Format. I like the morse

    stropping

    "Charlesworth's method" has the final bevel at 35 degrees, which only gives 10 degrees of clearance. However, with good A2 there will be no

    Bow Saw Blade Needed

    I used cheap carbide tipped masonry bits for drilling our saw plates. Of course,1/8" is the smallest they come. Run them as fast as your drill press

    Living "Off the Grid"

    I've heard it said that people in our modern society are only three hot meals from the stone age.
