    Veritas Shooting Plane quite a bit out of square. How important is this?

    Thread Starter: Hasin Haroon

    Allow me to preface this post by saying this is not meant to be a post hating on Veritas tools or their commitment to quality at all - I have purchased almost all of the planes they offer (I'm not particularly affluent, so this means I need to save up/sell other tools to be able to afford them) and...

    New Laguna lathe

    Thread Starter: Greg Parrish

    Received my new 18/36 today. OMG it is so much better than the Nova Comet, and I know that isn't a fair comparison, but it is amazing the difference in experience the extra power makes.

    Please help with my TS blade sharpening nightmare!

    Thread Starter: Adam Gerlach

    I recently helped a fired do a project, and because no good deed goes unpunished, I nipped the head of a brad nail with my WWII ( despite my friend's claim that the wood was clean.) I inspected the blade and the carbide looked fine, but it was dull. I couldn't even cut a pine 2x4. I usually send...
