    Ebay can go nuts sometimes. I'd recommend becoming a contributer here (for $6). Then you'll be able to post a Want To Buy add in the classifieds. I'm sure there are more then a few spare smoothers...

    $10 for a No.15! Wow that's great! MF 15s are great planes and while they're not rare, they don't pop up all that often either. I got an MF 15 from ebay a couple years ago for about $50 and that was...

    I've gotten to know David reasonably well over the past few years, and feel fortunate to call him a friend. I like to make fun of him sometimes for being "cranky", but in reality I can only echo...

    I recall a few years ago pulling my LA jack out the box for the only the 2nd time. I still had it in the blue plastic. When I picked it up it slid out of the blue plastic and landed...

    Hi Derek. No this is not for real. I think you misunderstood my 20-30 minute comment...or I communicated poorly. They don't need to soak that long. What I was saying is that you risk damaging them...

    I soak my Choseras regularly (though I often just let a douse of water sit on them for a few minutes first instead of soaking). I think they work best with a 5-10 minute soak, but I wouldn't call...

    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.

    Even better, if regular...

    Well, its the swim bladder not the urinary bladder (do fish even have those), and technically its not the whole bladder but a substance called Isinglass obtained from the swim bladder. So not that...

    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...

    If its a good user, no breaks, decent blade (e.g. no deep pitting), not rusted out and no cracks. Then yes, fair price. Not a steal by any means, but a fair price within the range of what you would...

    Anyway, when I do remember that I have it and wear it, I pretty much...
