    Since I grind all my bevels, going to the stones is really just a few strokes to improve the cutting surface. For a touch up, I only make about 3 strokes and bevel is restored. So wear on a water...

    55 volts is a lot. Sending that to a ground rod should trip the breaker shouldn't it? Is that 55 volts AC or DC?

    It sure doesn't take much time to release the grip of the chuck with the wrench, like maybe 3 seconds? I also try to hit a certain diameter so the next bowl is within 1/8" from the last bowl for that...

    I have to disagree. Been grinding to the edge for about 40 years. What you don't do is ignore dressing a grinding wheel to expose fresh abrasive, and you don't put more than the weight of the steel...

    You can drill a 1/2" hole with the tiniest battery Dewalt sells. But how many you want to drill is the decision.

    Straight grain hickory with brass bushings for the bolts would be the way I would go, BUT as others say, you are putting yourself at risk.

    As far as I am concerned, a miter box has no place in making furniture. Not since I had a Hitachi 8 1/2" blade with a Forrest blade on it. That was in the 90s. Most of the saws today are more for...

    An entire video on how to rest a plane? That's just ridiculous. That's a plain issue of just mailing in a video to keep subscribers on YouTube watching.

    The major strength of the core is not in the direction of the grid wood, it's in all the glue area on the grid and the two skins are reinforcing each other.

    New woodworkers have a lot more to learn than how they rest their planes. I don't see it as a real issue. Respect for tools can come in many forms and a little caution is a good thing in my book.

    It is bleak Richard, and it has an affect on everyone. I've seen quite a few stories on young athletes committing suicide. It's really horrible to see that in anyone, but for young people it is a...

    A vacuum bag does not guarantee a flat panel, you need a flat platen to make it flat. When I made a 4'x12' conference table, I made a 15" high grid on the shop floor to bridge across any...
