    Scott, PM-V11 really does live up to its "hype". As fine an edge as good high carbon steel, and twice as enduring.

    Ed, I am not sure I agree with Shannon Rogers on this. There is a significant difference when a chisel is sharp. Further, it is relevant that the leading edges at the back of the blade are sharp as...

    Tom, you know I like your bench and your work - plus I have the Moxon hardware from you - but I cannot agree on a Moxon dovetailing vise built into the front of the bench. This may suit your sawing...

    Curt, I agree with this. Some years ago I was writing about pushing a plane handle forward rather than down.

    Tim, my bench stands about 8-12” away from the wall. The European Oak bench top is 21” wide and 3 1/2” thick. The base is reclaimed Jarrah. Solid and immovable would be an understatement. Do not fear...

    Warren, I believe that I have given you credit for this frog angle in past discussions. I should have mentioned it here as well. My apology.

    Dan, I have a Custom #7 with a 40-degree frog. This is wonderful for both face- and edge grain, and can even shoot end grain. While it works well, 40 degrees is getting close to the limit of the...

    I tend to agree with Charles, but I have not used a split bench. I am also biased by having a single-top Roubo.

    One of the questions I have, not mentioned here, is whether there is any difficulty...

    Dan, I have a 42-degree frog since the Custom #4 is used exclusively with a closed up chipbreaker. The lower frog adds to slightly less effort to push and slightly improved surface clearness than a...

    Jon, the benefit from the JessEm is not just to avoid kickback, but also to improve the quality of a rip cut by minimising the movement of the board along the rip fence. It does this very well, with...

    If the tails and pins are similar in size, reversing will not affect the strength of the joint. The use of a drawer slide is irrelevant.
