    My mortise chisels are the tools I feel most comfortable sharpening freehand. They are pretty forgiving. After all, you beat on them with a mallet. If the bevel is off by a degree or two it doesn’t...

    Sometimes it's tough to get going. The surface will ignite and it will do a slow burn. To be fair, 95% of mine is planer shavings either from a lunchbox or my hand planes so it burns OK. Regular...

    I either compost it or burn it. Lately I dump my dust collector in a wooded side lot and distribute the shavings with a leaf blower. It returns to the soil in a month or so.

    Nice. I found a pretty clean 5A in the wild a few years ago. It's a great Neander hand drill. Very smooth operation.

    Depending on the amount of easing I'm looking for, I use a LN 102 block plane or a cork backed sanding block, or both. It's not complicated.

    I smack them with the mallet below. It's a cast iron body with a drop through handle in a thru mortise. It goes together just like a joiners mallet. The striking faces are white oak that I carved to...

    I have a couple pieces that look similar and appear to be heat treated. They came from an offshore shipping crate. They are a bear to work, behaving much like heat treated steel. The stuff is HARD.
