    Actually Mike, the OP was considering the expense of a CBN wheel on a grinder. Savings may be had by going for a 6” CBN wheel. However, then you need to accept a less powerful bench grinder.

    Mike, I must respectfully disagree.

    There is a very reduced chance of ruining the temper of steel on a CBN wheel of 80-180 grit. On these wheels, ground steel rarely gets above luke warm in my...

    Scott, I have the Atoma 140 and consider it a good replacement for the Shapton diamond stone that I have worn out. I had the DMT before the Shapton. It is still going strong, but I prefer the Atoma,...

    Scott, don't mess with the Veritas blades. If you are intent on using the LN guide, then create a set of jaws to hold the blade.

    An alternative: Personally, I hollow grind these blades, and then...

    The LN #9 1/2 bock plane uses the same blade as the LN #60 1/2 block plane. Both are bevelled at 25 degrees.

    Joe, my thought, which guides my choice here, is that the pin needs to have some flexibility to bend a little. Rigid, short-grained wood is likely to crack. Riven pegs offer the best chance of...

    The first person I saw do this was David Charlesworth, about 25 years ago.

    One tends to attribute a technique to the last person who uses it, not the first.

    Jason, I like the Veritas Small for this. A 1/2” wide blade is nearly always big enough, and the Small is so comfortable in the hand. If you only plan to get one, then a case can be made for the...

    10 years ago I completed a set of Campaign Chests for our living room. These were styled to remain simple and minimalistic, and built in Jarrah. Storage was one reason (12 deep drawers), but a big...

    My go-to shoulder planes are Veritas. I especially like the Small (1/2") and Medium (3/4"). My first shoulder plane was the Stanley #93 (1"), and I still have it. While the steel is not the best, it...

    While not my first choice, there is little wrong with LN, LV and Blue Spruce A2 steel.

    I’ve had good results from Unicorning mediocre chisels. I cannot say whether they hold an edge better, worse or the same as PM-V11. There is more to using a chisel than just edge holding. Balance,...

    I see David’s Unicorn method as a creative way of providing a longer edge on chisels (primarily) where the steel is of lesser steel quality. The higher edge angle gives them extra life. However, a...

    Exactly, Jim! Thanks for the clarification. That's what multi-media sharpening is all about - how easily it is to remove the mess from the previous stone and replace it with new mess :)

    Andrew, the only Shapton I use is the 1000 Pro. It was the 5000 Pro I disliked, since it loaded up and glazed over quickly no matter what I did. The 12000 is a nice stone. I prefer Sigma 6000 and...

    Hi Theo

    The bevel angle on a paring chisel is usually lower than on a bench chisel since, long handle and design aside, the paring chisel is pushed and not hit with a hammer. This means less force...
