    I have never used a blade tension gauge. Based on all articles I've read over the years, both for and against, I could never see that using a gauge would yield better results than just assessing the ...

    Thanks guys. I know what I was doing wrong the first time I did this. I confess I was having a lot of success without burnishing though, but given the endorsements of burnishing on this site, I am...

    While this is a repeat of a caution in a previous answer, be sure the blank is dry enough to use for your bandsaw box. I have found that, when turning from blanks bought from either Rockler or...

    If you don't want to make one, Carter Bandsaw sells one that is good and also has a separate attachment that works for cutting out bowl blanks if you're a turner. I would agree, though, that there...

    Christophe Schwarz and Michael Peckovich (Fine Woodworking) both have great articles on sharpening scrapers that are very clear and give a lot of direction which have helped me.

    I've owned mine for almost 10 years and haven't had any problems raising or lowering. If that problem exists with others then I'd wonder if the manufacturing process isn't as good as it used to be....

    I have never found and over ear protection that is as effective as in-ear foam plugs (although I know some don't find these comfortable). In addition, I generally don't find the over ear protection...

    Are you sanding with a RO sander or by hand? If you are using a sander, the Festool paper probably won't work on non-Festool sanders. Otherwise the Granat is great paper; probably not the least...

    All the other sanders mentioned are great sanders (ETS150/3, ETS150/5, and the Rotex125/150 sanders). It just depends on what you used them for. For my use, the Rotex sanders are overkill since I...

    I have a 4000 and 8000 Shapton GlassStones. They are great. They stay flat through more than one use (although sometimes I flatten them after each use just to be sure) and they give a great finish....

    It's a great finish sander. It can be used with coarser grits to soothe out some rough spots, but it excels at finish sanding. i feel it is more sensitive to how much suction the vacuum provides. I...

    My biggest fear is that, if I die first, my wife will sell all my high end power tools for next to nothing or give them away not realizing their value. I wouldn't care if they were given to a young...

    I only have experience with Oneida cyclones. Their cyclones are very efficient, giving sufficient air movement to get a high percentage of the dust and chips at the tool source. One reason I've stuck...

    As another poster noted, Woodcraft has Carter Ultra Blue tires on sale. I bought a pair of 14" for $40. Based on my research, these tires would likely last me for a long time and may never need...

    Still a little confused (but that is a problem sometimes) . . . I am using the carbide rods I got from you so that shouldn't be an issue.

    What I'm unclear about is when you say "5 to 10 degrees...

    Burnishing A Burr On Scrapers

    Recently I attempted to burnish a burr on a round scraper I had just sharpened on a 600 grit diamond Tormek wheel. The angle I use is approximately 70 degrees. I found that the burr, after burnishing...

    The thing is. everyone has their magic price. For some it's worth it if the tool is in mint condition and they pay anything less than new. For them, it's money saved out of their own pocket. For...

    One thing that would probably add to its value is whether the saw is still under its 3-year warranty since that warranty is on the saw regardless of owner. If the seller indicates the saw is still...

    I think it would be risky to attempt to smooth out the tires. If it were me, I'd replace the damaged tires (after a day or two of frustration for having to replace them).

    Have you tried technical support at the company that manufactured it? It would seem likely that they would be the best qualified to troubleshoot the problem. Or is there no contact in the US?

    As a rough flattening tool followed by sound sanding, planing, and finishing; it does work. It takes a little bit of practice but, for those beginners who don’t have access to the tools we all have...
