    I started out with the Med Veritas, used that exclusively for several years (note, lots of time between projects, so this statement isn't terribly profound). Last year I got the Large as the medium...

    Thank John,

    I actually have a Festool tracksaw (and jigsaw, and ROS, and Domino...) So I'll probably never be totally neander. But I find I only want to use the tracksaw on plywood. I am hand...

    Can you post a picture?

    If you just mean it has just a single bevel, I'd guess it is a carving axe. If you mean the blade is not straight up and down when viewed edge on... no idea.

    Not furniture... but probably a step closer to "Neanderthal".

    I've started chopping down the Ashe Juniper in my small backyard. And decided to (re)learn knots/lashings I've not used since boy...

    My tool chest is ~25" tall. ~27" wide, and ~13" deep.
    The C. Schwarz plan for a base cabinet at only 12" tall seems far to low to me. I've experimented by putting the chest on the bench (too high...

    Hehe I didn't have to try very hard. As the shop got fuller, the game of shop tetris to get the TS into position meant the first 10-15 minutes of handsawing was "free".
    We shall see how long I last...

    Richard, Yes, my wife was initially surprised as well. But given how many hand tool things she's seen me watch this year, maybe not very surprised. I got 70% of new so I didn't loose my shirt on...
  11. Starrett Angle Guage Reassembly? No. C183

    Anyone know the assembly sequence for this? I took it apart to clean off the factory machine oil and applied a wax coat.
    But I fumbled when I got the knurled nut off and all the parts fell to the...

    This is exactly what I was doing. Roughing is now going smoothly. ;)

    I've now had about 5 hours of hands on with a local club member at his shop. I don't know how many hours it would have taken...

    I sold the table saw today. Happy day. I really want that floor space back.
    Now, I just have to disassemble to the point we can lift it into the buyer's truck bed.

    Rafael, I actually like the UK slant (Brits make the best beer for example). Different focus and different names are fine. Just not sold on the content so far (for the most part).

    I've never used oil stones, but my 600 waterstone has always worked fine for me. I only use it if I'm fixing a nick in the blade, otherwise the 1,000 stone is what I start with when a tool gets dull....

    I only got a grinder this year, and specifically for wood turning tool sharpening (which is now my latest new hobby).
    I've never used it for planes or chisels. Though I am planning to use it to...

    Looks good to me! How did you clean it up? Particularly the wood handles? I'm curious about the process. I used evapo-rust on a hand drill restoration recently. But there was no...

    Quercus Magazine... Hmm

    I came across a reference to a new all hand tool woodworking magazine. I just got the first two issues.

    Unfortunately, pretty underwhelming for me. I wasn't enamored with the writing style of the...

    Still haven't decided. But I'm building cabinets for the Festool stuff I do already have. This will solve the unstacking problem... at least for the tools themselves.
