    New Router Plane

    Are you still using it or has it become a fancy/expensive ornament? Did you get clobbered with import tax and handling fees?

    Plane Irons and ProEdge

    I freely admit to being rubbish at sharpening and can at least get something usable off a ProEdge but yes, I was concerned about the belt being narrower than the blade. I know Tormek and their imitators offer jigs designed for the purpose but cannot see one for a ProEdge - maybe hidden along with...

    Plane Irons and ProEdge

    Link? As noted above, a search on their site as well as youtube and google produced loads on turning tools, chisels and even an axe but none for a plane iron so if you have spotted one that neither I nor the search engines could see then I'd be grateful if you could share it with me.

    Plane Irons and ProEdge

    Not remotely interested in sparking a debate on which method is best, I just want to know if anyone uses a Sorby ProEdge to sharpen plane irons? I can find videos galore for sharpening turning tools, not so many for regular chisels and no mention at all of plane irons which, I feel, could be...

    Oil Cloth

    Ah, ubiquitous linseed, should have thought about that. I too thought the Web would have the answer but nothing sounded quite right.

    Oil Cloth

    Talking about two different things. Linoleum, as per link, was a form of vinyl flooring, supplied by the roll rather than in tile form. It was a brand name, like Hoover, often used to include similar products and no, it wasn't meant to be wet unless something was spilled on it. And NOT what I...

    Oil Cloth Billy Connolly spoke of how the Scottish town of Kirkcaldy came to be known as "WTF is that smell?" as the pungent aroma from production of 'lino' was the first thing to hit visitors arriving off the train. Kirkcaldy was the world's largest producer of the...

    Isn't linoleum vinyl flooring?

    best budget friendly palm router

    I had a Katsu for AGES afore actually trying it out; it was brilliant, especially for its size. I used it with an improvised radius jig to cut perfect circles and it worked a treat. Only 'issue' was having to keep moving the mains cable out of the way and I suppose I could have addressed that...

    Oil Cloth

    Yes, I have a humidity issue in my workshop too and I've been doing the same with machinery but it was the recent purchase of some planes that made me think of oil cloths. One plane came in a polythene bag which appeared to have had oil squirted inside, which seems a common practice. The other...

    Oil Cloth

    I know in bygone days, any thing from agricultural tools to arms and weapons would be stored wrapped in oil cloth to keep the items in good, presumably rust-free condition. Anyone still using oil cloth to protect their hand tools, e,g planes, chisels, gouges etc? Better still, anyone making...
