    Boggs sharpening does a great job; I've run hundreds of files and rasps through them. Their process will not tighten the corners to any real degree.

    I'm trying to find a radial arm drill press (need the reach) that runs slower than 550 rpm. It's a pretty dry search.

    Those threads were 'run' by people who are offended by 'high' prices even though they are/were not forced to buy.
    With Jim Bode the price is well-known and does not mysteriously move.

    Not as sharp as they can be, the power overcomes what's missing.

    My hand tool space is 9'L x 7'W. It is bound by walls on the left and behind the bench. My bench is 7-1/2' long, giving 1-1/2' free at the left end of the bench.

    I have one and installed in on an Ikea-like bench top. The install was easy, the quick-release works well, and it's a fine performer.
    If you want a tail vise, this is a good way to go.

    The 4x4's are 3-1/2 which means the top probably finishes to 3", maybe 3-1/4".
    A ripped 2x12 gives you 5-1/2", which easily finishes to 4-1/2.

    When making mine from 2x12's I used the 5-1/2" to...
