    Yes i have; 2" x 4" has gone up in price 50% over the last year. Comparatively tho, maple, black walnut to name but two are far cheaper!

    I bedded some marble pieces in an oak table once, cut them in nice & tight, they had sharp square edges unlike those with a round edge. Used a clear construction adhesive like EB25 or sticks like s..t. Didnt have gaps to worry about, the polyurethane finish filled what gaps there were.

    Canada?!! Envious, the land of nice wood, plentiful & not extorsionately priced! Nice work, good luck with your move.

    Out of interest, are the tangs forge welded to the chisel blade? Of the same material just normalised or are the tangs a different material? I think they look great!👍😊

    Mr Punch first appearance (I.Sorby).

    Hi john, thanks for your reply. I can see that 'whatever suits' is good enough. But should this chisel have a ferrule at both ends? Should it have a leather shock washer? I'd like to restore it as authentic as possible, which is why i was researching the history. So many variables . . . Handle...

    Mr Punch first appearance (I.Sorby).

    Help with this chisel: i found this I & H Sorby chisel in a skip, looked like a piece of rusty old leaf spring til i cleaned it up a bit. I have read all the links above, & some, relating too Sorby history. In brief, John Sorby & Sons was established in 1797 & their trademark was a hanging...

    Lion wetstone sharpener

    Thanks jobnknock, yes i've seen those & i think makita still do one, amazon were selling one but out of stock & considerably more expensive than my £20 garage find!

    Lion wetstone sharpener

    Thanks ian, you should have seen it before i stripped it!! 1/2" of solidified debris in the bottom, faulty power lead & completely rusty backing on the wetstone. It now runs concentric & the stone won't need much dressing, its not wobbling up & down 5mm!! Nice to give an pld tool a second lease...

    Lion wetstone sharpener

    Right, an update on the wetstone refurb: Stripped the machine to get the wetstone off still connected to spindle. I eventually removed The black knob holding the wetstone but it left the screw in the spindle, no problem it came out easily with a socket. The backing on the wetstone was the...

    Lion wetstone sharpener

    Thanks pete, £70 - £100 for a stone for an obsolete machine seems a bit excessive, may as well put that towards a new machine!? The stone itself is serviceable, the steel backing its connected too with the hole in is the issue. First i've gotta get it off!!

    Lion wetstone sharpener

    If it comes to it i'll make a disc out of 6mm ally & fix it with a LARGE washer & bolt & stick wet & dry to that. I did sharpen a knife with the wonky wheel & it seemed to cut pretty fast, its too wobbly at present to try a plane blade, & i need to make a holder.
