    Lots of good advice already. Whether you want to use a scraper or something, or flatten the panel probably depends on what you are using it for. If you want the final product to be flat, you need to...

    Appreciate all the suggestions. Turned out we had plenty to do with just the battlefield and museum, so no tool hunting. Definitely taking notes for the next trip though.

    A lot depends on you. What kind of budget do you have for woodworking? A bargain to one guy may be more than another will spend in a year.

    Sort of the best way I can see a semi-universal value is...

    Titebond hide glue holds the handle on my jack plane. Holds up to some pretty heavy use.

    Not a glue guru, but I would assume you got a bottle that was out of date, or had not been stored properly...

    I don’t think sending something to somebody for postage is a violation (you aren’t selling anything). But my opinion really doesn’t matter. I was just trying to answer the question about why people...

    I have seen two things over the years.

    Kurtis, that looks fantastic. My restorations have been on making them functional, but you have made that one look practically new. Well done.

    If you don’t want anything showing on the outside of the rails, I suppose you could think about dovetailing the steps.

    If you are using screws, then yes I would definitely screw every step. I...

    I bought a surgical black, but then I saw the specific gravity for all three on the Dan’s site is identical. I figure I fell for a marketing gimmick, but it is a nice stone, so I am not too upset.

    I don’t know if this helps, but you can turn hybrid view off. In the upper right hand corner of the thread there is an option/button that says “display.” Linear mode works best for me.
