    Osvaldo,

    I do not build English style benches, for no reason other than I just haven't. I do build other style benches and I expect as far as slabs go the needs are close to the same. Depending on...

    Phil,

    Touche:p, but not much. We fret and fuss over the smallest imperfection and in truth no one cares nor even notices except us or another woodworker. I'm as guilty of it as the next guy or...

    Mike,

    The best "fix" for your problem isn't a wedge but a thin shim that matches either the tenon or the mortise. If done correctly it can be almost un-noticeable and if noticed odds are it would...

    Move to Tucson.:D

    3in1, Moble1, Johnson's wax, they all work. If you sharpen with Ark stones rust usually isn't a problem.

    600 lbs of wood ain't much wood. Maybe close to 120 or so B/F, not enough to build many workbenches.

    Eric,

    Yes and no.

    The frog on later Stanley and Record planes has been made cheaper with less mating surface. No, if blindfolded and each plane had the the same tote, knob, and equal sharpness...

    Lowell,

    Interesting video. However I see two major flaws in using a file to sharpen a tanged shave cutter. The first is it would leave too rough a face, That could be fixed on stones but if that...

    I finished the jig by drilling holes on the small end to hold the short cutters and filing/sanding the edges. It is not pretty but it is functional, the best part it fits the Tormek holders so I can...

    Derek,

    No problem, I didn't take your post wrong. The way I read it I agree with, most irons do not need a jig, the exceptions are the ones like the dog bone jig is made for. BTW, I've done the...

    Derek,

    I probably don't grind as much as you do but for most irons freehand is quick and easy, for me the secret is keeping the bevel flat. Once it goes out of flat, if it does, then I grind and...

    I just wanted to add that if you haven't used a bevel up spoke shave you are missing one of the true joys of handtools. Woodriver makes a metal bevel up that is pretty nice and at the price might be...

    It is. It was my old map holder/writing table from my Iron Butt/24 hour Rally motorcycle days.

    Spokeshave Sharpening Jig

    Spokeshave irons are hard to hold for sharpening. Classic bevel up/tanged irons are really hard to sharpen.

    Brian,

    Good plan, you will end up with something you can live with and work on forever. Much better than just building a stopgap.
