    I've mentioned this before but Noone took it serious. Those 6" diamond stones from HF work great for flattening my ceramic stones. I can't see any reason to use anything else. I haven't seen any wear...

    I'm with Tom on this. I would rather spend the time on a 400 grit stone unless I managed to chip or ding a blade. I haven't so I never use my grinder again once my tools are sharp. I don't usually go...

    Don't wait for it to get hot. Take a couple of passes on the grinder followed with a swish in water. Practice on something you don't care about and just make sure the tip never turns blue.

    Really, I must have missed that video :eek: How will I ever know how to put my plane down. I think I'd like like to float mine.

    After receiving the stone, rather the diamond plate, I sharpened a utility knife that was in bad shape. I expected the 400 grit side to work much faster than it did. It took quite a while to get a...
  8. Resting planes on their sides vs soles

    I just ran across this on FB where some newbie was asking about handplanes and started with "I know planes are supposed to be laid on their side", ugh!

    There's much information that poo poos this...

    I scraped through the side trying to level after the fact. You can actually see the end of a brace.

    I have splash and go ceramics that work great. No, I want the full experience of the water tubs and flattening. I enjoy this kind of thing probably more than building some project that seems to take...

    Of course the thread transformed into a HHG thread. That's fine with me, maybe I'll learn something and want to fire up the pot again. I already know in my heart that HHG is the best woodworking glue...

    Warren, I think you are far beyond a hobbyist. Woodworking day in and day out to make that many glue joints certainly allows for having a glue pot at the ready. I spend 1/2 hour to an hour in my...

    I think the only thing left for me to try are water stones. It's not that I'm not getting things sharp with what I have, I just want to see if I'm missing anything. That said, before the year is out,...

    I currently use the little Harborfreight diamond stones for coarse sharpening and they have held up well for many years. They're just too small for most things woodworking. I can only hope that these...

    I've seen saws like this before and wonder if it's a design or just been sharpened a million times. There's not much steel left out at the end.

    I totally agree with you. I would prefer to make them in the traditional way and I have the wood stashed for this purpose. I still may start out with laminated just to be sure I can make a usable...

    Yeah but somebody must have done these test already I would think. I'm talking strictly Titebond original. Never read the label, maybe I should start there.
