    How far down have you already chopped? It's hard to tell from the picture, but it doesn't look like you have gone all that deep down yet. If it isn't that deep yet, there may still be enough...

    I picked up the shooting plane in last year's special. There aren't many of those, and they go fast. There were quite a few good planes available this year. I've picked up a number of planes in...

    I'll take my LV jointer over a woodie jointer (I have an ECE) any day.

    It's too late now, but you could have gotten a nice discount this morning at the LV Cyber Monday sale.

    Both the LV and LN are great tools. The difference is a preference thing. I have the LV, which I find much more comfortable to hold and therefore use.

    And yes, that LN small bronze shoulder...

    Doing hundreds of these holes is going to be a huge task. I would seriously be considering farming this out to some automated equipment.

    Nice new toy, Gary. If it HAS to live in the wood shop, definitely keep it covered well. Sawdust will greatly accelerate wear on the ways and gears, and make a real mess if you keep the ways oiled....

    The turner's tape from Woodcraft is pretty good. The double sided tape from Stewart McDonald is even better, but it isn't cheap. I don't know exactly what the StewMac tape is -- most likely it is...

    I have a LV medium, but I would recommend the large.

    As for the Stanley 90 series planes, I really hate those things. Can't get them to work worth a darn. Uncomfortable to use. Not worth...

    I have a lot of cherry that has the same issue. It isn't about moisture in this case, it has been inside and dried for a long time and is very dry. There is a lot of stored stresses in the boards...

    I think pretty much any of the commonly mentioned chucks will do fine. I haven't done anything on a wood lathe where the amounts of runout involved would make any difference, and you really have to...

    Yes, for the fox wedging, bore the hole the size of the handle, stopping before you go all the way through. Use a gouge or similar to taper the hole so that it is bigger at the top. (Only taper it...

    At the very least, bore and thread it deeper and screw a new handle in. But I wouldn't do it that way. My experience is that a screw-in handle on a mallet is a bad idea because an off-center hit...
