    clifton vs lie nielsen????

    Thread Starter: Roger Benton

    Been wanting a #4-1/2 for a while and decided to save up the cash and buy new. I'd love to hear from any owners of Clifton planes, as that is LN's only competition for my $$$. I'd set it up and use it only for fine smoothing, to complement my #3. So let's hear some opinions from the Clifton folks!

    I just did the unthinkable.

    Thread Starter: Rick Potter

    Tool junkie heresy. I am getting ready to add a new garage for my old cars, and I have been storing too many tools. Today, I hauled a perfectly good 12" Rockwell single phase 110/220 turret RAS to Goodwill. I just didn't want to fool with selling it. I sure picked a lousy day to do it. ...

    Jorgensen clamps at Lowes

    Thread Starter: Edwin Santos

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    I'm getting a tad bored and have been thinking about ways to embellish simple pieces. Earlier today, I was reading old issues of FWW and came across an article on Marquetry. * How hard is it to learn Marquetry? I'm not looking to make Mona Lisa's. Maybe just simple geometric designs on boxes....

    Tall Case Oak Clock

    Thread Starter: William Chain

    I've just completed my most complicated project so far - a tall case oak clock based on the plans from Norm Abram and the New Yankee Workshop. From first rough stock into the garage to accurate timepiece in the hall was just about 8 months to the day. The plans I got were very outdated and...
