    Hi Megan

    I agree with the spam comment above. It detracts from what is for me a fine magazine. On the other hand, I experienced excellent support from Rocky a few months back, when I had...

    Hi Mike

    I have a chest of drawers for our bedroom on request from my wife. The design I have in mind is "different" and will be interesting to build. After that will be a couple of Windsors, for...

    Hi Ian

    30 degrees for all bench and dovetail chisels (since they are designed to be hit with a gennou), and 25 degrees for all slicks (paring chisels) since they will be pushed.

    Before switching to a PMV-11 blade in the LV LA Jack, I used an A2 blade with a 25 degree edge to shoot for many years - all without the slightest suggestion of the edge crumbling.

    Hi Mike

    Your comments are spot-on. LV use a curvy washer to add spring to the adjusters. This helps prevent all the tension going at once, and the blade dropping out (as it can with the LN). I...

    I have used the LV and LN Large router planes alongside one another. They are both superb tools. Both are a big advance in precision over the Stanley that inspired them. Blade adjustment, balance ......

    Lowell, the depth stop is essential for precise, repeatable work. For example, with hinge mortices (I assume that these were to which you were referring - the other type do not need levelled floors)....

    Check out three items:

    1. Have you tightened the parts enough - lever cap and/or frog screws?

    2. The chip breaker may be too close to the edge. Try it a little further back.

    3. My favourite...

    David, honing directly on a hollow grind creates a coplanar micro bevel. I would argue that generations of woodworkers have done just this. Are you saying that there is a problem?

    A wear bevel is present on both BU and BD planes, and it needs to be removed from both. A sharp edge is created by smoothing both sides of the bevel.

    Use the Ruler Trick for BU plane blades. It...

    I like (and own) a Record #043 (actually, mine is a Rapier version). However it is not as user-friendly as the #044. The...

    Hi Daniel

    One plane to do all? Grooves and cross grain rebates?

    If so, forget the LV Small Plow (which is too expensive), as well as the Record #044 and #043. The Stanley #50 I think will join...

    Hi Adam

    As Mark notes, the joinery chosen could be improved.

    The sides and back require stub mortice and tenons, while the front works with a sliding dovetail and a blind dovetail.
