    Well, I haven't done this, yet. Main thing I would stress about this is having a good clutch on your drill. I do have an old Dewalt drill, 25 or so years, and it has the best clutch of any I have...

    Built this years ago. As I say in the video, sanded for 6 hours and nothing up my nose or even on my glasses. Need to 'new and improve' it so it can stay on the lathe when I turn. Thinking of a fold...

    I never liked their handles. My favorite handles are straight wood cylinders. The metal handles can be cold to the touch on cold days in the shop. Wood just feels better for me.

    Only question I would have about them is are they M42 HSS or standard M2 HSS. I really prefer the M42 because of edge durability, and that difference is a lot. They are good tools no matter what.

    Some woods dry better than others. Black walnut is one of them. It tends to be very stable as it dries. Pacific madrone on the other hand, it will turn into tooth picks, curly ones.

    The problem with getting jigs to make the 40/40 grind, is that most of them don't roll far enough to the side. Dennis Gooding found a way to do it with the Varigrind jig, which he posted in the AAW...

    Thick slabs do not dry well. Mostly because the outside dries faster than the inside which results in shrinking outside, and that makes for cracks. Even if it dries without cracking, the inside never...
