I am writing a chapter for a new book on routers that deals with climb-cutting. Part of the chapter is about situations when climb-cutting is actually a GOOD idea. So far I’ve covered the list of situations below. But do you have any other situations when you thing climb-cutting is the better choice as compared to standard push-cutting? ...

Looking for CNC ideas/blogs - 15 replies
We’ve got two CNC machines in our shops, but I’m not really interested in carving signs with them. It seems that every CNC project I see is a 2D engraving, or at best a 2.5D relief carving. I am looking for people who have done really unique things with a CNC, particularly full on woodworking projects with multiple parts. It doesn...

Roy Underhill and I will be sitting down together in front of the audience at Woodworking in America, to talk about all sorts of interesting behind-the-scenes stuff. What would you like to know? What would you ask him if you had the chance? Would it be something about his early years at UNC and Duke? How he got interested in Woodworking because ...

It’s quite a lineup of woodworking legends, and I feel a little out of place, but I am one of the speakers at this year’s big conference and I hope some of you will be there! (That’s me in the upper right corner: James Hamilton) Let me tell you, my class is going to be unlike anything WIA has seen before. It’ll be for reg...

A lot of magazines now offer digital editions which can be read on your tablet, smart phone or computer. I used to prefer the paper editions, but lately I have really gotten into the digital ones. It’s nice to have a whole library of woodworking magazines in my phone that I can page through when I’m waiting somewhere. I’ve even...

Most know that Martin Sojka was the guy who started Lumberjocks. He sold it to Escalate Media a couple of years back, and finally left completely a while ago. I thought he was gone for good, until an hour ago. That’s when I got a Facebook message from him telling me about a new website he’d created. He said: “there was a bit...

When is the video problem going to get fixed? - 26 replies
It’s been a looooooooooong time since they disabled video embedding. Spammers were using it, and we all hate spam. But you know what I hate even more? Not being able to watch video here. This site is run by a company, not a guy in a basement on a Packard Bell somewhere. You’d think the problem could be fixed in at least a month...

Good deal I found on files if you need any - 9 replies
I found thin on ebay and I bought a couple boxes today. This guy has boxes of vintage files of all kinds for a really good price. I pay $6 each for tapered files to sharpen hand saws at Woodcraft. I can get a dozen here for $10 and he combines shipping. I can’t vouch for him as a seller yet since I just found it, and the listings are about...

How would you build "The Ultimate Shop Cart"?????? - 60 replies
I’m planning on making a shop cart on the next episode of Blue Collar Woodworking and I’ve been asking everybody I know what they would put on theirs. What I mean is, a mobile table/bench/cart sort of thing that could be rolled around the shop and used for assembly, as a work surface, anything and everything. The top would be a wo...

9 inch Radial Arm Saw blade... any suggestions? - 31 replies
I have a couple radial arm saws and I want to dedicate one to just miter cuts. I want a good blade for it, somewhere in the under $150 price range. I know a lot of good 10 inch blades, but 9 inch is harder to find. Forest has one but they want near $300 for it and that’s just nuts. Any 9 inch RAS or CMS users out there have a suggestion?

In defense of LumberJocks' no win situation - 105 replies
I usually don’t get involved in the little spats that pop up on this site from time to time, but there has been a rash of threads lately ripping on the moderators for allowing too much politics and arguing. And since there’s nothing worse than a rash, I want to offer what I believe is some balance to the subject. I like LumberJocks. I d...

HELP!!! Blue Collar Woodworking needs your opinion! - 74 replies
This is our first “season” and it is a learning experiance for us. I’m trying to establish the direction of the show, fill the niche that I originally intended. That has led to some significant changes over the months the show has been on. The first episode bears little resemblance to the latest episode if you really look at th...
