    I may have to get a "spare" dovetail saw. I don't think I will be sharpening that little guy with these old eyes of mine. Having a spare in the till will make it easier to send a dull one out to...

    You would be one of the experts on that. I am not one of them experts. In the moment (back then) I knew I have essentially zero local access to vintage irons for router planes, so even in if the...

    Thanks for the confirmation Jim. I got the full set of 3 Veritas joinery saws a few months ago but really can't compare them to anything. All I can say is "they work good and were ready to go out...

    Local in my extreme (humidity swing) environment I was able to assemble and restore a full set of Bailey bench planes, but is was not easy because of the rust. I looked at a few local joinery planes...

    Clamp on ammeter choices?

    I specifically want to know how much current the blowers in my dust collecors are drawing. Paying a few extra dollars for a plug in GFCI outlet checker seems prudent. All the ones I saw at the...

    I need to stiffen up a hollow cube

    I built a filter box, an evolution of the Comparetto Cube/ Corsi- Roesenthal box ( no idea who designed it first).

    Alan, I think MERV 11 against 0.3-1.0 micron size will get 20% (maybe a little more) on the first pass. So if your starting concentration was 100 particles per gallon, second time around the...

    Thanks for your input and discussion folks. I built a filter box today I am calling a Poindexter box. It isn't an invention. Clearly a permutation on the TOH, Comparetto Cube and Corsi-Rosenthal...

    My thinking is Studley knew from experience what tools he needed to keep and which he could sell off, and built his tool chest to hold the keepers only - for the work he was doing. Pianos I think.
