    Thanks for that, Ken. I have been thinking about how to go about this in my shop. I am still in the "Time to sharpen" mode, which means I am neither keeping up with the tools nor getting the best out...

    Trestle table

    I built this table and benches for my daughter. It is essentially a copy of. Christopher Schwarz table from an ‘09 issue of Woodworking, a great magazine. The small grandkids and dogs love it because...

    A couple things that have helped me a great deal in my sharpening are the LN honing guide and my Dad’s old microscope. Occasionally Throwing a blade on the plate of that scope tells me a lot. I had a...

    I, too, based upon a previous suggestion bought the stop loss bags and have been pleased with results. No degradation. After pouring if I don’t carefully wipe the spout I need a pair of small channel...

    At $750 I think he is in the game for a clean Unisaw. Yes the 1.5 and fence are negatives, but they work. You have a very clean chassis that has seen very light use. They do last forever and you can...

    I have permitted everything on my place since we have been in CA, the big house re-model and the shop build. BUT, there are just times when it is not worth going the permit route. Unless you are...

    There was a fellow back in MA who was from the Leicester area I think who worked the Holiday Craft Fairs. He had made 3 different height four legged stools. Some stools were finished but he would...

    I have to agree with you Lee. This is especially a problem in close qtrs. The normal solution is a larger wrench, a cheater or a union. I have been using the standard yellow Rector-seal ("Seal",...

    As it goes in re-modeling, things don't always proceed in a straight line, so the order of operations gets out of wack. I replaced the exterior door a couple years ago. Recently pulled the beat wall...

    I have two. One a straight blade and the other the LN Boggs curved blade, which I prefer. I used one a great deal back in the Woodstock days skinning bark for log homes. Today I am a fair hand with a...

    If it is a "pipe thread" it is tapered and the purpose of the tape or dope is to lubricate the joint so the metal to metal taper can make the joint. That is from my apprenticeship 50 yrs ago. The...

    Pop goes the DC

    I had just emptied the drum on my 1 1/2 hp Grizzly, which has done a good job for me. I did not empty the refuse bag below the pleated filter. I turned the collector on an boom! Fortunately, the bag...

    I have the Fein and it has been excellent. I call it the "tool I can't afford to use" due to the cost of the blades, BUT, when I need it, it is a wonder to use. Plunge cuts, spaces nothing else will...

    I would re-consider the pedestal approach. With a high stretcher you end up with great leg room. Your trestles could support the boxed frame you have built and not the inset boards, so you would...

    Cost, value & resources. I thought it rather extravagant when I was just beginning woodworking that I would buy LN planes as I traveled on business in Maine, buying one or two/year. I think they are...

    My go to on day to day cutting has become the Milwaukee M12 Hackz-all. Really handy and I use it a lot for wood or metal. I was 40' under my daughters house this weekend in a 16" crawl space doing...

    “Storing gas” is not dangerous as you are using an inert gas. It cannot ignite. I run a Miller 211 and it is excellent. Multi voltage. If you can swing it, you do want a 220 machine. It is just so...

    What make/model do you use for metal detection of embedded material?

    Sound suppression is kinda hard to nail down. I did Dynamat in my 2002's and couldn't tell the difference, but they were old cars and not made for silence. I think before trying to wrap the cyclone...

    Go to the Nashua tape site and look at all the options. They make a foil tape with an embedded mesh that is excellent. I thing it is 4" wide tape. Most "duct" tapes are good for everything but what...

    I'd bisect each of the 60 degree angles and draw lines from the point to the intersection of the 3 angles. From the intersection measure to the outside or let your compass do the walking.

    On my old Unisaw I added a 4" DC port at the bottom of the cabinet, built a ventilated motor enclosure as there was no motor cover when I got the saw and built 1/4" masonite ramps in the bottom of...

    I moved from MA to CA in '11. Do not wait until the last minute to determine what stays or goes. You do not want to be up against the time line with gear you have chosen too part with. Spend the...

    Seems to me you have answered your own question and found a more desirable spot for the dough. Move on. At this point every time you see it hanging on the wall it will bug you. I've spent a lot of...
