What on earth would a c*ll*ct*r want with a brush to remove shavings from a plane/bench for?! If anything proves you're not a c*ll*ct*r, surely this is it? #-o Sheesh. :roll: Here I am using a brush Axminster almost class as disposable for the job and people are throwing about c*ll*ct*r talk. I suppose it's only a matter of time before Axminster list it next to the LN planes and put the price up too...
Oh, come on Alf . Admit that people who are hunting down brushes are wasting valuable workshop time. They're spending so much time drooling over the items on TV and in catalogues which they haven't got that they don't use those they have got. If a brush like that ever gets used, I bet it's for removing household dust, not sawdust.
C'mon - prove me wrong. Let's see a piccy of what you're making right now!
Not a great pic, but I got busy and forgot to take any more. #-o Initial stock prep of 2" cherry for legs on a pair of side tables. Got to get round to the 1" stuff ASAP, start picking the pretty bits for the table tops etc. In between times I'm about to launch my attempt to make a round soled version of the Veritas wooden spokeshave kit, but I left ordering 'til too late and it came after the Bank Holiday weekend, so it's got pushed back a bit. :?
I do make stuff. I just don't feel the urge to tell everyone about it all the time - unlike certain gloatists in this vacinity. :wink:
I've been hunting around for a round wooden spokeshave, keep us posted oh how it goes making yours and then I may consider making one too. I've got some super dutch tiger sugar maple that is crying out to be made into a tool handle!
Any thoughts anyone on the best woody round base spokey to buy? I've tried to track down a Harris one but they are rarer than hen's teeth.
