    Shooting planes compared

    I added a side fence to my shooting board -- I use a LN no9 -- and it works nicely. The biggest improvement is mitigating the need to apply lateral pressure to the plane when I'm shooting end-grain or mitres; it removes one variable from the equation. It also makes each pass take a more...

    Veritas Mark II Honing Guide

    I guess you can camber your blade when it's in the honing guide -- although it's a bit dodgy and you risk gouging your stones. Usually though, I do my shaping of the camber on my grinder. Then, when I'm honing, it's easy enough to apply pressure on one side or the other to bring the camber...

    Fast dovetails

    Interesting. There's an entire Wikipedia page devoted to American and British spelling differences. Personally, I think our U.S. spelling variations are less colorful (or colourful) than their European counterparts.

    Fast dovetails

    I was only trying to be funny in relaying something that I found humorous; I thought the video as a whole was educational. I wasn't disparaging or dismissive of Rob at all. Defending him when there was no attack and bringing someone's wife into a reply is completely uncalled for.

    Fast dovetails

    I thought it was a pretty interesting video. He definitely has ironed out his technique. I'm surprised that no one's mentioned his choice in, um, bench appliances. My wife walked behind me and asked me what I was watching. Her comment was, "OMG, does that thing need batteries?" :roll:

    LA Jack maintenance

    I agree as well. I have noticed that when planing the harder woods the shavings are noticeably hot. It's probably the friction of the wood against the blade. You can wax the sole of the plane but you can't really wax the blade to reduce friction. I've also noticed black gunk on the...

    Lie Nielsen for general capentry

    Wow derek, that plane must be beast! Who made that 5/16ths D2 blade? Do you hone it on a stone or just a fine grit belt?

    For Sale : Veritas Bevel Up Smoother

    Yep, I knew that. I didn't see Holtey on the lever cap so I was curious if it was a Brese or something that looked very similar. Looking on the web, now I see it's Aled's own. I need to enquire about his kits. :wink:

    Lie Nielsen for general capentry

    I agree that a no5 is a tool for rougher work. The 5-1/2, however, I can't put that tool into the "rough" category. The 5-1/2 was a relatively late entry into Stanley's stable -- almost thirty years after the introduction of the no's 4,5,6 and 7 and 25 years after the 4-1/2. The 5-1/2 first...

    Quality Mid Range Hand Planes ?

    If Rob Lee made a set of "utility" planes made out of the same stuff as his new dovetail saw, I'd buy em. As long as the sole is wear resistant and the bed is well machined what else does a good hand plane need? Even though ductile iron planes won't break, I'm still afraid of dropping them...
