    Have not heard of them, but it looks like they are a company that is trying to do things right. I would be very surprised if they did not make it right.

    We just give you a hard time. The Siemsen style Nicholson is pretty easy to build. The advantage as I see it for someone who does not have a bench is that you can build it without a bench, and you...

    I built a Nicholson over the summer, and I like it a lot. No vise, which saves you a fair amount of money.

    Nicholson is pretty simple as it is. What is there is there for a reason.

    My guess would have been Sampson. I have a couple of Lions, and a Craftsman clone of a Lion.

    Mine are stamped with the manufacturer and model number near the handle.

    I remember George Wilson posting something about using diamonds to flatten ceramic stones, and that it would ruin the diamond. He used them under running water to avoid that if I recall correctly. I...

    I have been really pleased with my medium India stone. It is not super coarse but removes material pretty quickly.

    I had a 220 norton and spent more time flattening it than I did using it.

    I worked with the owner of a gas station several years ago. They had cameras at the register, and an elaborate procedure for any significant credit card purchase. Apparently the purchase of multiple...

    No experience with the 45.

    The Sargent equivalent is the 1080 (one listed for sale in the classifieds now as a matter of fact). I have a 1080, and it was a learning process getting it up and...

    Nothing cute about them. Dump your garbage cans, raid your garden. All around thieves (the good lord gave them masks so you would have fair warning) without any redeeming qualities I can think of.

    You can look them up on Tools for working wood and compare to what they sell for new.

    I would think a cabinet to keep the dust off combined with wiping with oil before putting them away would be enough. The heaters, etc. strike me as overkill. But then I don’t live in East Texas, so...

    WD-40 and a mild abrasive. Wipe clean with a paper towel, and wax. Works for saws, planes, just about anything really.

    My wife has made marshmellows using the recipe Alton Brown published. They taste a lot different than what you get in the store. No dairy in that recipe.
