    Lie Nielsen recommends Jojoba or Camellia oil. Thatís what I use. Readily available at local health food stores for a lot less $$ than buying it from LN. Be sure to apply it after every use, because...

    Agree 100%. I have a Stanley #79 with depth stop (early versions donít have one) and LN #98/99. Interestingly, although designed for the same task, sometimes one variation is more suited to the...

    Iíve had mine for 20+ years, use them on almost every project without any issues. Luck of the draw? Was going to suggest photo mount spray adhesive, but you beat me to it.

    Despite the significance of your injury, Stew, it sounds like you dodged a bullet. My father died of lung cancer at 56. Aside from the very occasional cigar, he never smoked. But he was a master...

    I recently scored 5 oak and 3 maple pallets that were listed in the free stuff category on Craigslist. There were some junk fir and/or pine pallets that I passed on. I didnít ask where they came from.

    +1 with what Eric wrote, but keep in mind that LN recommends no burr on their scraper plane blades. I own their 112 & 212 scrapers and, while it takes a bit of practice to set it up properly, they...

    Late 30s/early 40s Delta 1200 scroll saw. Great American iron. No other power tool brings out the creativity in me like it does.

    Iíve got a Charles Parker, probably between 80- 100 years old. Itís a beast. A search on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace will likely turn up a few. You wonít be sorry.
