Bench Grinder Wheels- Which one? - 11 replies
I have a Bench Grinder that was going to be tossed, and with a little TLC got it working. It’s a little bench top model, 1/3 HP I think. It has 2 gray discs on it (Aluminum Oxide maybe?) that are 6” by 3/4”. I want to use it to sharpen and put a good hollow grind on my tools. I have seen pink wheels, white wheels, green whee...

Dog hole size/ spacing - 19 replies
I am building the top for my bench, and can not seem to decide on the holes for bench dogs. 3/4 inch or 1 inch holes? I like the festool add ons and would like to use my bench top as a clamping/ holding surface… Is there any reason I should use 3/4 holes vs 1” holes? 3/4 seems kind of small. I also plan on spacing there fairly close ...

Multi-use drill press... - 3 replies

Would it be possible to use it as a shaper? It seems like a piece can be cut close to the line, then cut with the piece riding on a template. Is the dri...

Wooden Spokeshave- wood types? - 1 reply
I have just purchased a spokeshave kit to build my own beauty. I am just starting out and want to make most of my hand-tools. There are some amazing shop-made tools on this site. I would like to make all (or most) of my tools/handles from the same species of wood/metal. BRASS seems to be a common theme in the “wow that looks nice” po...

Browsing projects - 2 replies
Is there any way you could include a “Jump-To Page” feature in the projects section? After perusing the projects previously posted it would be nice to type in the page you left off at instead of clicking the pages 3 at a time. Thanks!
