    New Lee Valley Mortise Chisels

    Thread Starter: Sean Nagle

    I've been wanting to purchase some proper mortise chisels for some time. The Ray Iles mortise chisels were always at the top of my list. I also considered the Lie-Nielsen mortise chisels, but I'm not a big fan of the socket handles. I have a full set of their bench chisels and the handles are...

    Workbench options

    Thread Starter: Adam Stevens2

    I have a pretty basic workbench that I knocked up as I was beginning to get into woodworking, about a year ago. I have definitely discovered as time goes by and I am trying to get more done that the limitations of the bench are really bothering me - namely, workholding. I do not have any vises...

    Thread Starter: David Falkner

    Bench chisel handles

    Thread Starter: Derek Cohen

    I couldn't resist the opportunity that Steve presented a day or so ago, when he posted pictures of chisels made by Larry Williams and Don McConnell. We had been discussing the ergonomics of mortice chisels, when these bench chisel handles popped up. Rather than sidetrack the discussion, I thought a...

    What was Your Last Woodworking Tool Purchase

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    My last purchase was a 5 1/2 corrugated bottom hand plane, but I was wondering what others purchased last.

    Basement Concrete Wall Paint

    Thanks John- it's a reasonable suggestion. I considered screwing some vertical 2x2 pressure treated nailers into the concrete with tapcons, and installing

    Used Speedy 300

    Anyone selling a laser engraver that gets THAT defensive towards someone who seems to know about them is hiding and/or lying about something.

    A beautiful sight

    Basement Concrete Wall Paint

    I'd be tempted to cover it up with plywood. You may need some shims here and there, but it would be quick and easy. A combination of construction
