What I wish I'd known before spending money on woodworking hand tools #2: Still more new or used... You decide.

03-29-2011 08:35 PM by Dave Pearce | 3 comments »

This is the followup on my first posting concerning new vs. used woodworking tools. Bits, Braces and Eggbeaters Fortunately, for me, it wasn’t hard to find braces, either at flea markets, or antique shops. There’s a wide variety out there as well, so it’s not uncommon to find many variations of the same item. I’ve got several Stanley, Millers Falls, and Pexto models, and all of them have their good points. Since there were so many manufacturers, if you see one...

The Slowest Farm Shop #5: Progress on Shaving horse, spring pole lathe, and a mystery tool...

Why? I was inspired by a couple things, like poverty and such, but also after doing months of research into it, it’s just what appe...

No sharpen draw knife
