    Thanks for all the replies.

    The only thing I'll change is to use twist lock connectors. Currently they're just 6-20p. Working fine, but I do find myself eyeball-checking them occasionally.
  2. Machine power cord - 2 foot, into extension cord

    I recently hooked up a 240V circuit for a Grizzly 8" jointer, and for the cabinet saw I'll be getting later this year. The space is a garage bay, about 12 x 24'. The panel is in the corner, and I run...

    I suspect the gaps in support on the Shapton, and similar 'universal' holders is to address drainage. When not needing to be wet to do work, a dry stone will be stronger, and last longer. I guess....

    I understand the thickness advantage is negated by being able to use the glass stone nearly all the way down to the backer. Any normal stone would fall apart.

    Here's mine. 4" split top, 88" long, 24" total width, 34" high (I'm 6'1").

    LV quick-release front vise with a ridiculously large chop. LN proper tail vise, which is just about my favorite thing,...

    Well, put that way, it does sound pretty silly.

    Thanks for the confirmation. And yeah, I'm planning to flatten it with my 300 grit diamond plate, just like I do all my other not-so-precious stones.
  8. Shapton Glass 16k - homemade wooden holder OK?

    I'm looking at adding the Shapton Glass 16k to my sharpening regimen, and everywhere I read, it says to use the $116 Shapton holder. One site says it's OK to use their "economical" adjustable rubber...

    Thanks, Ted. I hadn't seen that product. I was aware of (and leery of) the Veritas Inset Vise, but this one's new to me. Seems much easier to install than something like the Benchcrafted.

    Well, I just lost a nice reply because my login timed out. Arrgh.

    Workbench build - end vise decision

    I'm about to start building a Roubo hybrid style bench, and I can't figure out what to do about the end vise.

    Quick overview: 2' x 7' top, 4" thick. 5x5 legs, mortise and tenon joinery, no upper...
