    I have the Record compasss plane, and it gets a surprising amount of use. It might just grow on you if you get it.

    Screwed up my courage and did it: planed both sides, squared one edge, and resawed down the middle. 5hp L18 with a 1 1/4" Resaw king cut it like balsawood, although supporting the 12' plank was a bit...

    It is a single resaw for a bookmatched hall table. Sounds like the wise thing is to let it sit a few more years. I've got it stickerred in an unheated garage with some slings on it so it can be...

    Thanks guys. I did indeed measure 10% moisture on a Wagner 930 meter, which read '10' on both shallow and deep settings. Here on Cape Cod, we have very humid summers and 'typical' dry winters, so I...

    Minimizing internal stresses

    I have a special (to me) 12/4 14" QSWO plank I'd like to resaw. It was stickered in an outside shed for 3 years, then brought into the shop ~ a year ago. It reads 10%RH. How should I store it to...

    Decorative air vents

    I'm looking to make some decorative air vent covers. Openings are typically 10"x18", and I'd like them to work with Craftsman theme in the house. Has anybody found a source of ideas for wooden air...

    No big impact, except I'm getting tired of my hermit life and teleworking. On the good side, credit card bills are about a third of what they used to be before Covid.

    Thanks for the replies, folks. They are much appreciated. The attached picture shows the ladder-like structures that form the backbone of this rack. Uprights are 6/4x2" white oak, and since each one...

    Wine racks

    I've been asked to make a large (>1000 bottles) built-in wine rack. As far as I can see, it's basically building a set of ladder-like (~80") verticals and cross-connecting them. My question is how to...

    What's a good first blade for the LT18? I thought I'd get a Resaw King, but unsure between 3/4" 1" or 1 1/4" widths. Primary purpose is really getting to know the saw, but I do have some 6" thick oak...

    Thank you folks; I just ordered a new LT18. To touch on some of the above, I really didn't intend to imply I'd resaw the 14" oak, but, I do make a line of seachests, which are traditionally made of...

    I also did not find much with the search feature. My principal use is dimensioning large-ish planks procured directly from a sawmill. I have a big batch of air-drying 8/4 - 12/4 oak that's up to 14"...
  15. Yet another bandsaw help question: Laguna LT18 vs Bx18

    I'd much appreciate insight from someone who's used (or at least seen seen) these two side by side. What does one get for the extra ~$2k besides a 2hp motor increase? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks guys - I get it. Tiny cambers go on the secondary bevel, larger ones on the primary. Makes sense, and I'll give it a try. The idea of camber equal to shaving thickness really helped me...

    How to grind a camber

    I've been lackadaisical with grinding/honing cambers into my plane blades. Sort of rock it to one side, then the other, done when I don't see the edge of a plane blade mark the piece. Is there a more...

    Tail vise has really worked out well, but I did make all the moving/mating parts out of black locust. The rest of the bench is rock maple. In hindsight, that was a good call.

    Y'know, I bought a set of cheap hardware-store chisels once, (Sandvik brand), and backs turned out to be flat, they hold an edge well, and ended up my workhorse.

    I have all three widths and use them all the time. I would guess their use increases as one ramps up the accuracy of their work.
