    It appears to be back up, but the cart is non functional at this point. Must be a lot of shoppers checking out right now!

    If you had asked me this 2 months ago, I’d say I have two and never use them. A couple months ago I built a Windsor chair at Peter Galberts workshop, and now I’d say they are absolutely essential. A...

    You'll be perfectly fine. My roubo has a much longer overhang on the right of the base and I'm not at all concerned in use. Also your point no. 2 regarding weakness is actually a strength - a regular...

    If you asked me a year or so ago it would have been around 50 - 60. I got hit hard by the garage sale/plane restoration bug. But I found myself never using most of my planes so I sold off the vast...

    Here's the link to my earlier comment - you can see Paul mentions he snapped one of the chisels. He used to rate the AI very highly before this.

    I have the AI MKII and they are definitely a lot more delicate than the Veritas or Lie Nielsen/Stanley SWs. They are great for paring and lighter work, but I haven't tried 'beating' on them. THey'll...

    You are unlikely to split a laminated head along the glue line by regular mallet use (I think it's almost impossible if the glue up is decent). Walnut should be plenty fine for the center too - it...

    I wouldn't worry about cracked totes - they are easy and quick to repair. My only concern would be any breaks in the castings or frogs. Rust is no issue so long as it isn't too bad - I've restored a...

    I second the 6" or 4" double square recommendations - smaller squares are tougher to use to mark 45 degrees than the 12" combo squares.

    I'm not sure what your budget is, but the best value for performance and quality in the western style chisels right now IMO are the Ashley Iles MKII bench chisels. They are O1, so they won't hold an...

    It should work just fine in a 3" thick bench. I second using a heavy metal hammer to set it - it takes more than a tap to hold well, hit it kind of hard. I pricked the surface of the post randomly...

    Whats even more impressive (and rare) than someone with a PhD in mechanical engineering is someone who can take advice gracefully.

    Between the two options I would go with the joinery plane set. The combination plane can do everything the other planes (other than the router) can do, but not as well. It's easier and better to have...

    I have both. I prefer the LN (thin plate) by far - the Veritas arrives with a less aggressive rake, which makes it easier to use for a beginner. Of course that can be changed. The LN looks a lot...

    The lee valley dividers from France are actually very good for the price at around $25. I would recommend those over the $10 or $15 dividers (new) - they will last you forever and serve you well. Now...

    I agree that it is a bargain for the price. I bought the stainless steel one and sold my old veritas mortise gauge. The SS one feels a lot better made and machined, down to the shaft clamp on it.
