Think I'll just hang around Hand Tools for a while... it's getting awfully dangerous next door, what with toxic wood dust and deafening machinery.

The BU versus BD planing dispute seems positively benign in comparison :)

Oh I dunno, chopping mortises can get fairly noisy. And frankly every time I breathe in I fear my nose will get clogged with the fluffy shavings still floating about in the air. It's a real worry... :shock: :lol:

Cheers, Alf

Ah... my shavings don't quite have that level of fluffiness. Yet :)

We do have a rather friendly bunch here, even when debating tool philosophies. I think it's due to the laid-back Brit demeanour. The US based boards seem to attract a more argumentative set.

I am as my post count indicates rather new, well really new actually and I lurked for some time before joining. There is one site I go to that is in the states and it is very friendly, at least the section devoted to Neandertal's is, maybe the hand tool crowd is a bit slower to argue. :whistle:

Just wondered if you have ever had the pins vs. tails first debate, and if it came close to actual battle?

So far we've tended to all run away and hide if there's been any danger of such a debate. And maybe whimper a bit. 8-[

Of course we all know it's not a matter for debate anyway, 'cos there's only one way. Naturally it's - good heavens, is that the time? I must go...

Cheers, Alf

I don't know... there's one very large US forum where things can get lively, but even there the hand tools department is very civil. By and large, I think that neander types are inherently less aggressive and more civilized :)

Must be because we're unplugged. All that elecrikity. Maybe it isn't all consumed by the tool... :lol:

I'm no expert but I found it easier to cut the waste first.
