    Hi Derek,

    The papst hysteresis motor, coupled with the 5.5kg platter makes for very consistent playback. I'm currently running a soundsmith Otello MI cartridge. The biggest issue with the 598 is...

    I paid $25 for a 1/2" matched set of wooden planes. You don't need a 78 or 79.

    I agree that the small veritas is a great choice. I reach for mine far more often than my 45. Which does make a great plough plane, the veritas is just somewhat easier to use. For tongue and groove,...

    Thanks Derek, I suspect there may come a point where the contrast may even swap.

    It's an Empire 598, a mk2 version, with a Jelco tonearm.

    Thank you. It's mulberry paper, glued to the walnut frames (which are interference fitted to the doors), which is handy since I can operate the equipment with the doors closed.
  8. I guess this was my first quarter 2022 project.

    Finally finished the credenza. It's been a multiple month project. Actually one year from the day I drew it, but I didn't actually start working on it until January. Cherry and Walnut, which should...

    I'm a gen-Xer and well.. I gave up on retirement in the 90s. The 00's cemented it. I'm content to just work until I die. Unfortunately, my kids (which includes both millennial and gen-z) are left...

    I see you missed where I said I don't use hot hide glue often. But use liquid. Which offers all the convenience of PVA, with all the convenience of hot hide glue..

    Liquid or hot hide glue?

    Liquid I'm generally a one side kind of guy. Except I'll size end grain. If I'm getting squeeze out, there's enough glue IME. I rarely use hot hide glue, and it's been a...

    It's easier to make the round first, and the hollow from that. I'll second the LN Traditional Side Escapement video.

    Paring is different than chopping mortises. I just did breadboards this weekend, using my long 1/4" (~14") chisel, instead of my one or intermediate length (~10"), or the short one (~ 5"). All are...

    Ok, so I need to choose to use the most difficult tool possible to be cool. Got it ;)

    There was a question, I actually gave a professional recommendation that was clearly not what was wanted to be heard.

    The dutch chest is a great suggestion. Easy to move, stores a lot, and you could do chest on chest with it easily. I really do like working out of a chest
