    I don't have experience with either one, but if you have the cash you could order both, keep the one you like and very likely break even or sell the one you let go for a very nominal loss.

    I conclude Pete and Jim were right. I finished the plate with a wire wheel on a dremel and it is pit city. I cleaned the "gum line" where the teeth meet the plate real careful while the dremel was...

    You are welcome Stew.

    This is a new tool for me, and it is quite the little thumper with a 2.5 # head on a 19 inch haft. It sounds proportional to a 5 pound head on a 36 inch haft right? Nope,...

    Thanks for the pointer Curt. I looked at a bunch of Boy Scout boy's axes online today.

    I finally decided to just go for it and round off the end. I figure once a child has grown big enough to...

    I wondered if the relief in the feet might work as handles, but you are packing that thing tight full of tool steel.

    Boy's axe experiences?

    When I was about 8 years old I asked my step dad for a smaller axe, he said it was "better" to start using man sized tools and grow into them. I conclude it is a disputable matter.

    Will you be able to rig some sort of shoulder strap or side handles for moving it around? Or can you just lift it by the bench top?

    A couple hours in. I derusted with a razor blade and then wet 100 grit. It is pretty pitted, but I can wax it once it is clean. At the tooth line I sanded just until the points of the teeth were...

    Seasonal movement has been exactly why I haven't put a planing stop like that in my Doug Fir benchtop.

    I have been rethinking now that I have a larger leg vise to reach around. I have one of...

    Thsi is not going to remain unsold much longer. I just had a very successful off-grid rust hunt, but other interested parties have maybe 36 hours to snag this thing out from under me.
