THANK YOU MARTIN / MARC - 10 replies
Martin, two days ago a lovely new LumberJocks/Woodwhisperer T-shirt arrived in the mail. Yesterday, a Powermatic T-shirt, two Powermatic carpenter pencils, and a Woodwhisperer Coffee Mug arrived in the mail. These were for my shop video entry. Wow!

HTN Gordon Planes - 7 replies
One of the early tool purchase decisions that I made when setting up my woodworking shop was to purchase some really top traditional wood planes. I was directed to the HTN Gordon web site.

Making the Jerrjens Mini-Cyclone - 26 replies
In one of my early blogs, I made reference to the dangers inherent in inhaling wood dust. Over the years, I’ve concluded that any small particulates that find their way into the lungs are a health hazard. We all know the risks to ones health from smoking, airbourne asbestos, coal dust, etc. And the claim is made by some that some species of wood...

Who's Online? - 9 replies
There are times when I’m blogging on LumberJocks that I would like to know how many members are online and who they are.

However, I suppose that feature is becoming ...

Tuning the Bandsaw - 14 replies
This is an article that has been worked around a bit and was in a woodworking club newsletter that I used to edit. I’m sorry that I can’t recall the origin of this article, but there is as much of me in it as the original author. I’m being up-front in stating that although I’ve modified it considerably, it is not all my w...

Self-Impossed Boundaries - 2 replies
I purchased my first woodworking equipment in August ‘01 which was my entry into woodworking. So I’ve only got five years of woodworking experience under my belt. There is just so much more to learn and to attempt. In my mid forties I made a phenomenal personal discovery. Most of the limitations I faced in life were set by me. The many things...

Editing Errors - 9 replies
When I comment on a member’s post, I miss not being able to edit my spelling and grammatical errors after posting. You know what it’s like; you read and re-read your post before committing – but damn, when you do, the errors just jump off the page. Would it be possible to have an “edit” option stay on the poster&...
