    We never really considered a table top oven, so no valid opinion of its merits.

    We love the short 1/2 oven in our range and use it almost exclusively. It heats up much faster, takes full (home*)...

    As mentioned above, Robin Lee has posted on forums that the 11 is a Spinal Tap reference. (11. Because 11 is better than 10.) Inside joke and they feel it is better.

    I've never heard a CPM-3V theory, though there was some talk I saw that it might make a good woodworking steel.

    Roubo Plate 11 Wallpaper from PopWood (by Chris Schwarz, when he was with them.)

    The "clamp" is a crochet, made famous by Roubo's Plate 11 drawing. I'd call the brass piece a bench dog, but maybe there's a special term for one used on a bench's face like that.

    Uh, it says:



    so not close to what the OP ask for. (But seems to be a good way to get the Benchcrafted vises and hardware, if you want their style and are building it yourself.)

    Haven't had a chance to try the Pride stones, but you should be fine. Pride uses the same abrasives as the other stones and PM-V11 is very well behaved for a "super-steel". (Stone differences will...
