    Are you using a zero clearance insert? That should help. You could also score the board on the backside right where the cut will be, or even use blue tape over the cut area. -Howard

    My understanding is that Krenov used to hollow grind his Japanese chisels. I've tried it on occasion and have found no bad results, but people do warn against it.

    Never, never reach behind a moving saw blade of any sort. And, if an edge tool starts to fall off of a bench let it fall, don't try to catch it (ask me where that one came from...). I remember a...

    My thought is that you probably don't need 3 wheels, at least to sharpen hand tools. People have been raving about the cbn wheels now available, usually suggesting 180 grit. I hope this helps.

    Ken, would you please say a bit more about why it is better than a fret saw for removing the waste in dovetails? Can you make a tight turn with it, the blade looks wide for that... thanks -Howard

    I know that Hida Tools, in Berkeley (or perhaps Albany) sells Matsumura chisels. I'd call them and ask (I don't know if they update their website regularly). They are nice folks. -Howard
