    I wouldn't worry about it. I have no reason to believe that regular mdf isn't vegan, I just don't know for sure and am often surprised by what has animal products in it.

    I can't answer for all vegans, but for many, yes it would be. Not necessarily because they would find that specific scenario wrong in, but rather because most vegans are vegans, because they are...

    My bench is a hair over 4" and they did not hold well. I counter bored the underside of the wholes about an inch and now they hold fine (actually they started working with even less of a counter...

    You'll need to wait for Rob to chime in to tell you for sure, and even IF there is one he may or may not disclose it. BUT my impression was that they scrapped it or at least put it off when they...

    I actually have tried it (on new and vintage planes) and didn't like it. I'm blessed with very good eye and can usually get and even cut just by eye ball. That said, I do something very...
