    My biggest fear is that, if I die first, my wife will sell all my high end power tools for next to nothing or give them away not realizing their value. I wouldn't care if they were given to a young...

    I only have experience with Oneida cyclones. Their cyclones are very efficient, giving sufficient air movement to get a high percentage of the dust and chips at the tool source. One reason I've stuck...

    As another poster noted, Woodcraft has Carter Ultra Blue tires on sale. I bought a pair of 14" for $40. Based on my research, these tires would likely last me for a long time and may never need...

    I think I understand why my first effort wasn't very successful. I will experiment with a little better understanding now. Thanks to both Reed and John.

    Still a little confused (but that is a problem sometimes) . . . I am using the carbide rods I got from you so that shouldn't be an issue.

    What I'm unclear about is when you say "5 to 10 degrees...

    Burnishing A Burr On Scrapers

    Recently I attempted to burnish a burr on a round scraper I had just sharpened on a 600 grit diamond Tormek wheel. The angle I use is approximately 70 degrees. I found that the burr, after burnishing...

    I said "almost always" . There are always exceptions. That's why buyers of used tools must always beware.

    The thing is. everyone has their magic price. For some it's worth it if the tool is in mint condition and they pay anything less than new. For them, it's money saved out of their own pocket. For...

    One thing that would probably add to its value is whether the saw is still under its 3-year warranty since that warranty is on the saw regardless of owner. If the seller indicates the saw is still...

    I think it would be risky to attempt to smooth out the tires. If it were me, I'd replace the damaged tires (after a day or two of frustration for having to replace them).

    I guess I'd agree that, in fact, since Tage Frid and Christian Becksvoort were or are producers of fine pieces of furniture and cabinetry, it is an appropriate topic for a magazine or book on fine...

    Have you tried technical support at the company that manufactured it? It would seem likely that they would be the best qualified to troubleshoot the problem. Or is there no contact in the US?

    I wouldn’t even think of questioning Christian Becksvoort’s techniques.

    As a rough flattening tool followed by sound sanding, planing, and finishing; it does work. It takes a little bit of practice but, for those beginners who don’t have access to the tools we all have...

    While HEPA dust collectors, vacs, and cyclones, for collecting at the tool source, are plentiful, I don't believe that any HEPA air cleaners (like those that are generally hung from the ceiling), are...

    Who among us has never experimented with a belt sander when we didn't have access to the tools that would do the best job possible. If you're careful and conservative on how you use it, a belt sander...

    I think the Incra Master Lift (which I think is really a Jessem lift) with the hex key crank is the best. It is extremely precise and allow very minute adjustments up or down. It takes more to get...

    I don't know for sure but I believe the Incra lift is made by Jessem. At least they used to look alike.

    As long as the blank doesn't exceed the stated max, you should be able to turn it on your lathe as long as you cut the blank round to begin with. If you start with a square blank and turn the corners...

    If you bought direct from Incra (or even if you didn't) please call them. They are always very helpful, provide answers, and, if it involves a sub-standard part or accessory, they will replace. If...

    What is the capacity of the lathe you are using? Whatever the specs say is the limits of your lathe. Sometimes, when you near that maximum diameter, it gets more difficult at the start of turning...

    No movement in mine. If you bought it from Incra online, call their tech support. They will help. Most likely, there is a problem with either the lift or the inserts and one or the other should be...

    I didn't mean that it was anything you'd done. And I would agree that, unless you run hundreds of board feet of lumber through the planer every week, you should not wear out a set of cutters in your...

    I am relatively new to turning and, at first, didn't see the need to regrind my scrapers to turn them into negative rake tools. I actually still only have 2 tools that are negative rake; one a steel...

    "...a solution desperately seeking a problem..."? Hardly. If that were true then there are tons of tools out there that could be put in that category, including the Domino, CNC machines (for...
