    Just took a look now Malcolm, it does seem to get a bit complicated (and quite expensive) for larger parts done as a one off. Promising perhaps too though, suspect there's applications in treating...

    I'd without being sure of how good a choice it might be take a look at phosphating Malcolm - zinc or managanese depending on your colour preference. There's quite a bit on Google, and DIY kits on...

    Good quality (as in sharp) brad points will cut cleanly at the hand powered RPMs. Egg beater type drills as the guys and as in Derek's picture are very good for drilling smaller holes in wood or...

    Dehumidifiers can be misleading Jim. You're perhaps well up to speed, and I'm not sure what the options are in the US short of buying a professional model which gets expensive - but i bought a...

    For what it's worth i discovered too that a fairly quick flattening of the sliding surfaces of a plane iron (the sliding face of the iron - Clifton no.5 - and the outer surface of the chip breaker)...

    Hi Bob. Don't mention the war as they say in the UK. (this stuff is never the short route between two points) I bought a copy of the manual early last year and experienced no problems. As it...

    Hi Bridger. We're in more or less the same space on scraping, except that i bought a commercial scraping tool in the UK http://www.greenwood-tools.co.uk/shopscr63.html , and the surface area involved...

    Scraping will do the job, but it's not without it's pitfalls too. You need a surface table big enough to blue in the sole on, a carbide scraper and a finishing stone plus consumables. Maybe even fine...

    :) It's somehow often the way with machine based processes - including woodworking. The job goes quickly once set up, but getting to that point can require a lot of time, investment in equipment,...

    I doubt that anybody is purposely trolling to raise trouble, least of all Gene or Tom.

    There is however i think a tendency on the part of a few to (a) to see everything in the context of their...

    TBH Bill i think you're going to run through significant quatities of almost any paper you care to mention if there's a decent amount of metal to remove. Silicon carbide is pretty commonly available...

    Have to say i think it's daft (and to say the least disappointing) that discussions like this seem so often to be shaped by various flag waving exercises.

    It's as clear as day based on comment...

    Guess a lot depends on the complexity or not of the handle shape. My experience in working up 3D shapes (plugs for moulds for model aircraft) is that if you want very accurate cross sections is that...

    The seems like the underlined bit is probably the essence. It's potentially a holistic sort of a deal, and cuts different ways. (no pun intended :)) In that if the person refurbishing doesn't know...

    So far as i know (?) the Agazzani B-18 and the Minimax S45N are not quite in the same class Russ. The S45 is a good saw, but it's perhaps a class below the Agazzani or for that matter the heavy duty...

    The CO is the heavy duty model in the Centauro bandsaw range, so it's probably the right saw for mixed general and resaw work. Erik may be able to advise, but you might if required even get a narrow...

    A coarser self adhesive paper as Ron says seems to do the business - some have written of having great success working manually on a long strip...

    For sure if the sole of plane is flat (co-planar) in the right places then it'll work without flattening.

    If flattening is required then my take is that it's a bit of a case of choosing the route...

    The problem with full on cutting discs and the like is likely to be the heat they put in - your steel would as you know likely end up close to fully annealed.
