    Filip,

    Glad you took a shot at it! I know you'll get it to work, just be safe about it and attach the grinder and tool rest to the same base. One thing that can be said about the Chinese is that...

    Correct. The holly stumps sat on the ground at my mom's house for about a year before I had the opportunity to take them home. They were not really punky, but there wasn't anything I could do for the...

    歡迎!

    I was in HK just a few weeks ago for a few days at each end of a trip to Taiwan. By FAR the prettiest big city I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. Very much hope to go back again and see...

    I turned a bowl last year from a holly stump. Still have a big chunk of it, but haven't gotten around to doing anything with it yet. The stump had more color than the trunk, but still pretty bland so...

    Thanks Brian! Yes, the light is a small LED flashlight. In hindsight I should have bought ones that were uniform diameter and/or a standard size. The lights I used were 1-1/16 at the body and about...

    On my off-brand mortiser it isn't so much the chisel bending as the entire mechanism torquing out of alignment. If I tighten everything up so that it doesn't shift at all I can't hardly pull the ram...

    If you think about the life cycle of PPBs they aren't hard to get rid of, but you have to either bake them or cut them out. PPBs lay their eggs on the surface of wood so they prefer rough-sawn lumber...

    I enjoy working with yellow mulberry, though mostly on the lathe. It's light weight betrays it's strength and excellent rot resistance. Not quite that of cedar, but very good. It is also fun to burn...

    Good idea! I've used similar method for drilling plumb holes with a cordless drill. Hadn't considered it for the mortiser, but stands to reason it would work like a charm. Thanks for posting this - I...

    This is sad to hear, but I share your sense of humor. Not to diminish the gravity of this man's loss, but it does remind me of a thief that died of electrocution in Conway, AR several years ago...

    I made two of these for a couple of the 4th grade boys in my Wednesday night church group. For those of you without kids or a nerdy bent, these are Minecraft (the game) torches. I thought them a...

    I've tried a few different blades on mine in the ~2 years I've had it. My absolute favorite was the 3/4" Timberwolf 3tpi. Haven't tried the 1", but the 3/4" worked beautifully. Still have one in...

    In fence building I was always taught to turn the bow in toward the piece. Clamp it down if you can and it should stay put.

    Thought I might suggest a different option - rather than drilling for a knockout bar, would you be able to pry the attachment out? I do this on my tailstock, which isn't drilled through. I have a...

    Sounds like either a blocked venturi from varnish or trash that got past the filter or just bad gas.

    Thanks Malcolm. Don't think I want a corrugated plane.

    I guess I was just assuming that a longer plane would equate to a flatter surface. The current thickness is 7/8" and I'm aiming for ~3/4".
