    This weekend I started working on what will be my new workshop. A 25x40 timberframe and plan on documenting it fairly thoroughly. If folks are interested, please let me know and I'd be happy to spend some time documenting it for folks here. Cheers, Brent

    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!

    Thread Starter: ken hatch

    Caffeine - Rollercoaster into Hell

    Thread Starter: Tom Bender

    Caffeine and other stimulants I have tried provide a nice boost but it's a rollercoaster that goes a little less high and decends a little lower with each cycle.

    Jorgensen clamps at Lowes

    Thread Starter: Edwin Santos

    Hi, I don't quite know what the story is with the orange Jorgensen bar clamps. At one point I heard the century old company went out of business. Then I heard a Chinese company bought them and planned to resurrect the line. Today I saw a six pack of 6" 3700 series bar clamps at Lowes. They're in...

    New Moravian Bench build Part 2

    The first fitting of the slab to the base is not too bad, the backer board needs a bit of trimming, maybe a mm or two off where the angle meets the forward

    Best reason ever for owning a bandsaw

    Iím the same way when it come to my machines. I admit some of my reasons are superstitious.

    What is your project? Interior use an interior finish; exterior use a spar/marine outdoor finish.
