    Nice. When I used to tie I used an old drafting table adjusted almost flat. Those days are long gone. After 10 years in storage I sold my whole kit to a young tying enthusiast that I work with. He...

    Lee Valley sent me a plane body as opposed to a new plane. I told them that made perfect sense. I transferred the knobs and other bits to the new body and it now works as...

    I've always thought that LV was a class outfit, but their response really impressed. I'm kind of stunned. They're sending me a new plane and asked that I return the defective one at their expense.

    Jim and Derek - like I said, the shaving is a good indicator of uniformity and depth of cut. On certain woods it will communicate edge quality and geometry too. Nicks in a cutter are tougher to see...

    I have a hand held wand style metal detector I use on "found" wood. It's been a good investment. It's pretty sensitive, and will find broken staples and other very small items.
