    On my Powermatic 160 I probably got 6 sharpenings in before raising the knives. It depends on the damage, if there were chips in the knives that would require removing more material than restoring a...

    Try using a medium stone before the fine one. Jumping from a file to 4000# may be leaving file scratches in the edge that weaken it. Using a jig such as John's will help to keep the edge square.

    That is a very nice saw. The single phase units do take forever to spool up. There is a hack you can do on the switch to make it toggle on and off as opposed to on when depressed, well worth figuring...

    For wide banding on large panels, the Hoffman lipping planer is hard to beat, though pricey. Virutex makes a less expensive unit that might be worth looking into, as well as the Lamello Cantex. For...

    Clark deep hollowing system

    Any opinions from users of this rig as compared to other captured hollowing systems? This looks intriguing, stout and maneuverable. I currently use a homemade snake type hollower with a JT...

    A router plane will cut a surface parallel to the workpiece face. It may not reach far enough to cut the whole tenon cheek, but you can extend the initial area with a chisel or block plane and...

    Jamie, the guide finger is adjusted flush with the blade and works like a fixed guide collar on a shaper (without the offset). I have used a similar guide with a cutout around the blade so the...

    I would use a drill press, easier and more accurate than a handheld drill. Mark out the centers with screw points driven through a 1x4 and save on the bushings.
