    In my life Iíve noticed that each decade is different from the previous one. In the current decade, Americans have lost the last bits of tolerance for the values held by others. Itís remarkable to me.

    Off topic, but if I had buying my L-N 4-1/2 over again, I wish Iíd gone for the bronze and non-corrugated.

    If I wanted their No. 4 today, Iíd get the bronze for the heft and the cool factor.

    Yes, but Iíd prefer to just use a guide block and a drill. I donít really want a drill press alternative in the shop. I donít often need precision boring into pieces that donít fit on the drill...

    I have had this set for over twenty years. Every time I use it I am in awe of its massive stability. It is a mighty tool. Until I discovered hand planes, this dado set was actually my favorite tool...

    Next time I use my shooting board, Iíll put it away quickly so no one sees how pathetically crude it is.

    Bore into end grain

    Hereís one that probably makes the rounds here from time to time.

    To make a second guitar stand, I need to bore two 1/4Ē holes, only about 3/4Ē deep or so, into the end grain of a (42Ē long) 5/4...

    Wow. Sorry to hear about that, Jim. I got lucky, I guess. Yes, come to think of it, you do see a lot of very expensive parts. Going after restorers looking for a special part, maybe?

    I try to nudge sharpening-curious woodworkers toward Davidís videos, but from what I can tell from the sometimes tepid responses, David seems to be an acquired taste. Itís their loss.
