    Thanks for the input.

    The trays are variations on the one pictured below. Instead of solid wood bottoms I've used 1/8 birch plywood and will top with cork sheet to make them non skid. These will...

    Some of us have had our fill of rain lately, especially our friends in mid Michigan. We're expected to get some today and the farmers in my neck of the woods will welcome it. I'll look for the silver...

    I'll second Lee's suggestion of making your own throat plates. I make mine from some scrap oak I had in the stash. Just trace your existing plate, cut the shape out, and sand to fit. I planed mine to...

    We have an older version of this and it's worked well for 20 years or so. I use a steel on my kitchen knives prior to every use too.

    Save your money. By the time I was through fettling my #75, it was tuned like a Swiss watch and sharp as a razor. It was still all but worthless as a user tool.

    Lack of heat is a deal breaker for me, unless I’m ice fishing. I don’t mind a cool shop. In fact my basement shop is a great place to escape the summer heat. If it’s not at least 60* in the shop in...
