    Bandsaw Fences

    my first oil stones

    Thread Starter: Adam AR Brown

    Hi all, I'm a long time waterstone user and am basically happy with them. A King 800- and 4000-grit stone and then sometimes stropping on leather with green carbide compound. I have a course stone and various sandpapers that I use for rough grinding. My tools are mostly vintage, with some new O1...
