    I agree totally with you if you are starting from scratch and do not have a clear idea what you need but it can be not the case.

    As a hobbyist I also use my bandsaw infrequently.

    IMO under a such situation it isn't worth to have very expensive blades. I use Lenox/Starrett and Makita regular blades. They have a good temper...
  4. Great set

    I guess I have the same set of plates purchased from amazon (I purchased "Ultra Sharp Diamond Sharpening Stone Set" three years ago). I really like them.



    Consider it will demand some time to...

    I purchased a toothed blade exactly because it was suggested (LN site and youtube videos) to use it to remove big shanks of wood and as you, I wasn´t comfortable with its (apparently) fragile teeth,...

    Tested and approved

    I had a chance to test my Jack plane with this blade and I can state it is completely approved.

    I used two pieces of massaranduba (scraps from my new bench construction). It is a (very) hard wood...

    Same here: I do not have a scroll saw so I also use the bandsaw and chisels.

    The jig looks me very practical when making multiples drawers, probably it isn't worth the setup time for a single one,...

    If I use pocket screw and glue I did not maintain other clamps after attach the screws. Yes - they are used to save clamps or cope with a small number of clamps.

    Jack of all trades

    Although I spent last 30 years in power woodworking as hobby, I had had a few very cheap manual planes, including two number 4 and one block plane – all Stanley, new, (very) low priced and with the...
  10. I missed band clamps

    As a number of posters comments, it will depend what is your use (application and your style) but it looks a good start up for me except I would miss my four Merle clamps I purchased on 1991. They...

    The issue is to tilt to both left and right. All bandsaw I know have the table tilting to right only.
  12. Interesting article from Holtzwerken

    I construct that jig to make thru dovetails and it worked very well to me. It is in German but I guess you can follow it even with no German. I hope you you enjoy!

    I use the face less visible with preference to outside one...

    Cbm?

    We also use cubic meter here but never would some abbreviation or acrostic like CBM... is it common? We use simply m3 (actually the number superscripted).
  17. At the same boat

    That is also my situation and I imagine it is common for most of woodworkers: one single workbench for everything.

    As you are going to a bigger shop, take care to not fulfill it also. Temptation...

    Kiridashi

    I have a Japanese kiridashi I use as marking knife and general purpose one. Absolutely great.

    I am considering to purchase a second one as a backup as I am an intensive user for mine.

    Confirmed

    Yes, an aluminum kitchen foil piece around the bit will make the set fits perfectly. (My) kitchen foil is 0.1 mm thick. Perfect.
