    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...

    2nd Build (first) - CNC Router

    Thread Starter: David Falkner

    Building my 2nd CNC first, I hope. I have been researching for over a year, read a thousand threads and articles, and am hopefully building my 'second machine' for my first.

    Well I Took The Plunge

    Thread Starter: Stew Hagerty

    Plunging as in making mortises with the Domino I just ordered. Yup, I ordered the standard size along with the systainer full of beech dominoes. I have a nice Powermatic Hollow Chisel Mortiser, which I will use for larger joints so that's why I opted for the smaller model. I am anxious now to...

    Stanley 75 Bull Nose Rabbet Plane

    Thread Starter: lowell holmes

    Has anyone of you used a Stanley 75 hand plane successfully? I have two of them. You would think they would be good for cleaning up a rabbet. I have never been able to get thin continuous shavings with one. I'm curious.
