    Don't know. Your plastic version used the amp. Did they mention an amp for the bigger antenna? (I don't remember if they took number of loads and wire length into account. Also results vary...

    I don't think you'll find any agreement, it seems to be more of an appearance preference really.

    What distinguishes the Champion model? (I don't see it listed on Lee Valley's site. They have Economy, Standard, and Professional listed.)

    Certainly true for me too! I think it's the compound curve found on most kitchen knives and my difficulty adjusting to it as I work along the edge. (Straight edges, e.g. chisels, are easy! :) )

    PopWood had an article about using "Glue-Lams" for constructing a bench. I'm sure Megan Fitzpatrick was involved and ended up with the bench which is still in use. I don't think I ever saw the...

    You can answer your own question. The Stanley irons are in the neighborhood of O1 and the L-N iron is as good as A2 gets. If they both work for you, you don't care. If you prefer one or the other,...

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

    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.

    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.

    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...
