    How many handplanes do you have?

    Thread Starter: lowell holmes

    I have seven. I have a 604, 605, 607 Bedrocks and a 5 1/2 Bailey. The other three are Baileys as well. I have Hock irons and breakers on them. I don't use them much any more,but I will start wood working by hand again. I have a collection of Disston saws as well. Some have curly maple handles.

    Clear Vue Cyclones - how can they cost so little?

    Thread Starter: Allan Speers

    Well, as you all know, I recently took possession of a FREE, vintage Onieda 1.5 HP system. Thanks to the excellent replies in that thread I started, I now know that I can "kinda sorta" get by with this, in my smallish shop, but would do well to upgrade at some point. So, I'm already looking...

    That once used tool.....

    Thread Starter: Ken Fitzgerald

    A number of years ago I bought a tool that after I completed the project I was working on, it had to be somewhere between another 7-10 years before I found another use for it today. It wasn't cheap and I hope it doesn't break because I suspect I can't get parts for the PC Profile sander. It's one...

    Power Sanding

    Well, for me, the ROS work fine on the higher grits, 220 and above, but don't come close to the angle drills on the coarser grits. I want a flex shaft

    Minimax S45n and blade drift

    What is it? some kind of saw? Thin kerf blades can flex at speed. Maybe blade stablizers or, better guides if it is a bandsaw.

    sprinkler systems

    Just FYI, many water supply jurisdictions now use 'smart meters'. They can see how much water you used in any given 15-minute time slice. Really handy
