    I think LN is now making a 4 1/2 in bronze. However, it’s selling for $750 which is a bit steep. That price is a bit too high for me.

    Living in southeast Florida EVERYTHING rusts except my LN #4...

    Awhile ago the Central Jersey WW Assoc. had Alan Turner as guest speaker. He emphasized Stropping, using stones only for defects in the edge. This really impressed me. So I stopped going to the...

    Hello all-

    First post in a LONG time.

    We moved to south Florida about 2 years ago. So rust is a real problem. To be exact, I have to look over my steel tools every day or two. And every day or...

    Horror of horrors, I bought a couple of these at (forgive me) Harbor Freight. Cost less than any kit would have, counting my time in the calculation. If the wood parts beak, I have a DIY clamp build...

    I get coupons for free gloves from Harbor Freight. Like the above, cut off the fingers. Use a rubber band to hold them on. Seems to work.

    I have the LN Scrub and I use it most to taper table legs. It just makes the job go so fast. If I have a board which is really cupped it just makes things go faster and more easily.

    Sharpening Problems -- Solved

    Thanks for the great review. I never knew about the felt polishing wheel.

    Does it really add that much to the stropping wheel's finish?

    I usually use the 3000 for any major blade reshaping....

    These are the blade and the front and back of the handle. It's a POS saw except that it's pretty clean off the bat. I haven't done anything with it yet. The handle has whatever...

    Refinishing a saw handle

    Hi all-

    I decided to buy a couple of old saws off the Bay. My aim was to learn how to sharpen them and clean up the handles. I decided to do the handles first. I will be sharpening next week.

    I don't use the "built-in" dog on the vise. I just cut a dog hole in line with the bench dog holes on the chop and use that. The steel dog would have to be cushioned anyhow, so I don't even bother...

    I built my "Holtz" bench at Kelly Mehler's school in 2009. We just mortised the vise into the end of the bench so it was mounted flush to the bottom of the top (doesn't sound right does it?). There...

    Another way

    To make a short story long, I was using the LN Butt Mortise plane to attach a hinge and looked at the large mouth and said to myself, this would be great for trimming dowels and kreg plugs. So I...

    Hi-

    I have the old version of the top and several sets of Marc's bits. The T & G works great once everything is adjusted and aligned.

    Not an expert but, I used a 3/4" HSS router bit attached to my edge guide to get as far down as I could. Then switched to a brace with a 3/4" auger bit until the tip broke through the...
  17. LN 95 or 140?

    I ordered a LN 95 Edge Plane.

    My question is, can I use one of the planes described in this thread instead of the 95?

    The reason I'm asking is, the 95 has been back ordered for awhile and if...

    Thanks.

    I don't know why I didn't see it on the Woodcraft site before.

    Looks like it will do the trick.

    Thanks to all.

    I think HF is the best bet (bit?) since this is a one-of.

    BTW- there is no wood sill. This is solid concrete on a slab.

    Hi-

    I have the Milwaukee work place (?) radio and I hook my IPod into it. The radio is as tough as can be and the IPod sits in a builtin pouch on the radio.

    Works for me.
