    I changed out the 1 Woodmaster CT resaw blade the other day. Replaced it with a 1/2 3 tpi blade for general work. It cut straight. No wandering, but one side of the cut was burned wood. I checked...

    Tom, although it is not my preference, a #5 1/2 is often used as a "Super Smoother". This was popularised by David Charlesworth. This is also popularised by Rob Cosman. Think of this a little like a...

    The damage (chip) to the leading edge of the chipbreaker looks to be minor. Discussing replacing the chipbreaker misses that the chipbreaker needs preparation if it is to be used to prevent tearout...

    Ivan, I would guess that it chipped as it is quite sharp. If it was mine, I would grind it back with a 50 degree leading edge angle. Now you will be able to benefit from closing the chipbreaker up,...

    Thanks Mike.

    I do wish we could bottle your “go for it” willingness to tackle complex moldings and edgings. Part of my “elegance” (keeping it simple) is that I have not the skills you so...

    Downsides of the BS: the LN, another side-clamp guide which registers the back of the blade, is much more compact (better use of stone) and nearly half the price. You do need to make your own...

    Jason, you are comparing apples with oranges.

    The bottom line is that diamond stones are available in coarse grits, generally topping out at 1200 grit. There are finer stones available, such as...

    While I am posting, it appears that I omitted to post Drawer #1 when this was completed. Probably because it was not especially clever.

    Thomas, the chisels find uses for different tasks. A wide one may be used to level a dowel or raised section. A narrow one may smooth a groove. A medium one can reach into the corner of a rebate.

    Hi Mike

    I've heard (sic) great things about both the Empire and Jelco. What cartridge? I had a Rega 3 some years back. A classic. Now I run a highly modified Thorens TD150/Rega RB300/Supex 900...

    That looks great, Mike. I'm guessing that the Cherry will darken and the Walnut lighten over time ... perhaps come to look much the same and lose the contrast. Good choice of grain direction...

    Chuck, round knobs can loosen with all planes when they are tightened by fingers. A better method would have been thumb screws. What I have done on all my knobs is add a slot for a screwdriver. Here...

    Thomas, my preference would be the Veritas Small Plow. You will need to add the T&G kit to it. If the cost is a factor - and I have no idea of this - then the Stanley #45 is a definite option … but...

    The back will only prevent racking. It will not help resist the sides bowing outwards.

    You need a brace which pulls the sides inwards. This is why I suggested a stretcher (hidden below a shelf) at...

    I have a 10.8v (Festool C12), which is rated 12v in the USA. I think that this has 1.5 ah batteries. This is perfect for a workshop, for drilling and driving, with two batteries. 10.8v may sound low,...
