I appreciate the time you must have put into making this vid, but if I could make some constructive criticism, IMHO I think you may want to have more cuts and takes for the various scenes. One trick that thewoodwhisperer uses is to film a closeup of what he’s doing and then during editing, he adds a voice over to explain what’s happening. That way you don’t have to talk and do something at the same time. Long technical monologues are very difficult to get right especially if you try to do it from memory. If you can break it up into sections and put pauses in between, then editing and doing retakes are both simple.

The only complaint i have is you say that safety is #1 at your shop, but no eye protection with all those sparks flying?

You are to be commended for sharing your woodworking knowledge with online videos.
However, here is a snapshot from your opening montage that is disturbing. This is where I stopped watching.
Best wishes…

dont worry about Hobomonk – hes another one of the complainers/blockers/angry/rude people. I’m blocked by him – dont even know who he is….oh well :) its such a beautiful sunny day here

Thanks for the video – it’ll be a good resource for when i actually get into buy good chisels. Like Steve – I have about 4 of them of different brand names…and they are all cheap, and probably dull :)

In the pic above…

No blade guard??? ok, sometimes that’s necessary to make your cut. But not here.

Anti-kick back??? probably needed on this type of cut more that others…

Position of the operator???? waiting to catch the looming kickback maybe???

Hey, I’m not the critical criticizing type. I appreciate the video. I learn from stuff like this. And no, I would not compare you or the production to our illustrious friend “Norm”. But Thanks anyway… (without complaints, blocks, anger or rudeness).

I think the picture above from hobomonk has to do with the broken push stick on the left side of the picture.

Thanks for the video.

I have a novice question; I am pretty sure the answer must be in the video and I probably missed it.

I used the worksharp and I always cool the blade from time to time when flattening the bottom of the blade. I know there is a heatsdink on the bevel port but not for the disk top. You do not seem to mind the heat build up…

As to the other topic that was raised in this post (please excuse my intrusion) I don’t think it’s the broken push stick. there is enough clearance between the fence and the blade to do the cut safely. Maybe the position of the hand pushing the stock at least when starting.

Yep I’ve got to agree with Steve, that beer was just to darn close to the edge of the bench. Just wish I had have been standing right there beside Jim so I to could concentrate on his every move to see if he made any safety errors. Then I too could point them out to him. But I was’nt so I can only thank him for his time and effort put into making video’s for us to watch. Yes safety is important but I keep seeing the same negative comments time after time! Maybe instead these people should be producing safety video’s for us.

Nice video, thanks. Steve, I have a very important question. On that cold chisel what is the ideal temperture to use that. Do we need to keep that in the refridgerator when we’re not using it?
