    I hope your fix works. If it turns out that the oil and wax do cause the repair to come out, here's an option.

    When you use the dado set, does it give a flatter bottomed dado than it did on the saw with a looser fit?

    That is a nice little plane. If I've got them straight, it's the one for thinner stock, like the Stanley 49. The more common Stanley 48 is best for stock about 7/8".

    Parting things out works best when you have a common item where many people may be missing a part. In this case, you have a rare and complete item. If you sell one part of it to one of the few...

    A new base plate is a good solution. What I noticed about the Bosch is that if I let the spring alone lock in the adapter for PC bushings, some slop remained. If I also pushed in the direction the...

    I don't think we disagree. The role of the shoulders is to convert wracking force into pull out force. My point is just that a through dovetailed tenon is not substandard. The component of the...

    Charles Neil Woodworking on YouTube has a video called "Invisibly repair a crack". It's a good method.

    I agree with John Jordan that blade sharpness is a likely contributor to the problem: resawing benefits from a sharper blade than is needed for other cuts. Here's a quote from Matthias Wandel's...

    The back bevel looks to me the problem. Try one of the blades from your other 60 1/2, and it likely will work.

    I agree about the surgical tubing as a great method. To apply more force, just use more wraps. The one thing to watch out for is squeeze out that contacts the tubing: it can stick.

    Tape works to keep dirt, oil, or simply the iron surface away from you work, but it needs to be reapplied each time you change the clamping length. If you slice PVC pipe into 1" long cylinders, then...

    If you use a CBN wheel, grinding softened high carbon steel is said to be a problem. But with a hand-cranked grinder and an ordinary aluminum oxide wheel, I wouldn't expect a problem.
