    Saw advice

    Thread Starter: Blake M Williams

    I have to give the USPS some credit for dealing with this Covid chaos.

    Walnut, Hickory and Steel Coffee Table

    Super Nova II chuck

    Thread Starter: Shawn Siegrist

    I have a 1 1/4” direct thread Super Nova II chuck. I’ve had the chuck for about a week, very happy with it. Maybe I’m missing something obvious but what is the best way to remove the chuck from the lathe? There doesn’t appear to be flat spots for a wrench, any suggestions??? Thanks, Shawn

    Card scraper hook - how long does it last?

    SC3 slider blade

    There are advantages to an ATB-R for ripping as well as for cutting grooves. But I really like how the ATB slices through the material and just deal

    Split top Roubo bench build

    That's going to be a nice bench, Mark. IMHO, it was good you did the base first. (although one clearly must have in mind the approximate size of the intended
