    Happy New Year Aaron! I am not at home to look at the type 4 examples that I have, but it sounds like one to me. If you want to get type correct pieces for it, you can try Michael Jenks (and perhaps...

    The only thing that I will add is to consider getting a CBN wheel for the grinder. They stay cooler than the stones, reducing the risk of burning the chisel, and cut quickly. I've upgraded to one...

    I have some of the Suizan saws from Amazon. They are decent for the price. The teeth are finer than Western saws so they cut a bit slowly. If you accept that and don't try and rush it, they do a...

    I have the coarsest Atoma plate and love it. It cuts fasts and does not degrade quickly like some other ones (DMT in particular, I have a dead one of those). If you go for diamonds, go for Atoma.

    I got myself a $1,000 gift card. I am certain that I will be buying that much anyway. Other than the 20tpi dovetail saw there was nothing else of interest to me.

    I've used DMT, maybe some others. Now I am a big fan of Atoma. LV and Amazon carry then, I don't know who else.

    I'd contact customer service. The sale clearly stated that none of the imperfections affected functionality. Perhaps one of the functionally imperfect soles got placed in the wrong pile and not...

    Have you considered a on-line course, such as Shannon Roger's Handtool School? It is an economical alternative to in-person learning at only $380 for a year. I have not signed up yet but will soon.

    Might be from East Germany? That would explain the lack of references.

    You must be able to find float glass. I think that all glass now is float glass unless you are buying special textured glass. I just got a 3mm pane of glass to replace a garage window. It was...

    They are pre-packaged as a unit, the files come in the roll sealed up in a plastic bag. I just had a set delivered last week after a time on back order. They might be focusing on filling the back...

    It is the same, or worse, going the other way. Shipping was more reasonable a few years ago. This has really put a damper on my eBay sales. Meanwhile, packages under a kilo from China are...
