    Again, Ken, I'll not apologize for my contributions to the forum, I give as much or more than I get. I'll also not apologize for my patronage of the advertisers in the banner ads; in fact, Rob Lee...

    Augusto: I've installed over $6000 of millwork in my house, and I've found that using a coarser toothed coping saw blade is much better than the fine blades. Nothing special about the blade, Home...

    Glenn: Well, sites like this grow from user generated content, ascribing membership growth to advertisers and user fees makes little sense to me; its the membership that shares their knowledge that...

    Well, a little bit of too many rules, and the slow erosion of access unless you pay, sort of grates on me from time to time. Seems like some folks have another agenda.

    They are out there at the flea markets, but again, over priced; rustbuckets have asking prices of $15 each for under 1" sizes, those in better shape sometimes more. You got to be in the right place...

    Always start the cut on the push stroke; its a canard that you start on the pull. It takes a light touch and practice, but once you get the feel for it you'll never go back to the pull stroke.

    Doorstop.

    Or ballast under the lathe.

    Those are your choices. Seriously, don't waste your time on this one. Stanley "Handyman's" are superior to this plane, and I wouldn't recommend spending...

    The forked lever cap is not all that rare, so its not particularly collectible. That being said, these make great users, so flatten the back of the iron and sharpen it up, it will serve you well.

    I'm sure IBC makes fine irons. What I don't understand is why folk expect not to have to sharpen a new iron a little bit, and flatten the back a little bit, on anybody's iron - notwithstanding any...

    For $7 you should have bought it and made a tote, if the sole and frog were in good shape and the iron had length. $7 in gas is what it takes to cut my lawn.....

    Larry, you might want to rethink, as the bed of a 90 really does not lend itself to tenon trimming, not enough length to register properly. For another $10-15 or so, upgrade to a 92 or 93 if its not...

    Sharpening is the key skill to learn. A plane is no more than a jig to hold an edge tool, in this case an iron. LV and LN make fine planes, I own more than a few, but for regular bench planes a...
