    Hi Ian

    The Ruler Trick (I think David has renamed this) is a much maligned technique - one either loves or hates it. I think it is BRILLIANT! So there!

    Hi Ian

    Just add a little liquid soap to the water, and you will be fine. I've used Shapton Pros for many years and never experienced a problem doing so. Without this, stiction is a constant...

    Hi Kees

    Thanks for posting your video again. I recall seeing it a year or two ago.

    The observation I have is that, on a pretty flat and narrow board such as you are showing, I would rather saw...

    Hi Daniel

    My most recent purchase has been a combination jointer-planer/thicknesser (Hammer A3-31), and it is a joy to use. My pleasure comes from the use of handtools, but there is no fun in...

    Steven, the issue with a #72 is that it is not a bullnose plane. Even a bullnose plane does not reach inside a wall.

    Brian, a chisel plane makes sense here, although I do not owned or used one. I...

    If you plan to use jigsaw blades for knives, then get HSS. They tend to be flatter than the HCS and, more importantly, you can grind them without fear of affecting the temper.

    Hi Bob

    I have a white Norton 46 grit on one side and a 46 grit Norton blue 3X on the other. The 3x has hardly had any use in about 4 or 5 years. It's a great wheel if you want cool grinding, but...

    The question is whether you need a scrub plane, or whether a jack plane would not be a better choice?

    If you are removing large areas of waste, then go for the scrub. Otherwise a jack is the...

    I've never had any difficulty feeling the wire, even at 13000. What will make this more difficult - even prevent it - is if there is a back bevel. For example, the Ruler Trick on plane blades or a...

    A grinding wheel removes steel from the centre of the bevel face to create a hollow. A high speed grinder does not reach...
