    Squaring Up Really Long Boards... Tips?

    Thread Starter: Erich Weidner

    I have a few dozen long boards I need to glue up into large panels. (11' to 16' for each section). They will be about 32" wide. I'm gluing up from 1 x 6 S4S stock. (So nominally 3/4" x 5-1/2"). They of course all have some bow, cup, or twist. I don't care at all about the look of one flat face...

    Exasperated with Fine Woodworking Magazine!

    Thread Starter: Derek Cohen

    Craftsman at Lowe's and Ace

    Thread Starter: Ole Anderson

    Anybody else get the tinglies now when walking into Lowe's and seeing row on top of row of red Craftsman tools, chests and equipment?

    Tool rust prevention

    Thread Starter: lowell holmes

    In the current issue of This Old House Magazine, a reader ask Tom Silva how he prevents rust on his tools. I live in Galveston County Texas, so I Know a bit about rust. I coat my tools with Johnson's Floor Wax. They do not rust. I thought some new woodworkers might be interested.

    I just don't get negative rake scrapers.

    Thread Starter: Russell Neyman

    It seems like everyone is climbing onto the negative rake scraper bandwagon but, frankly, I just don't get it. I use scrapers all the time and get really good results with nary a catch. Perhaps that's because I grind mine at 85 degrees. I mean, by adding a "negative rake" to your scraping edge...
