The Complete Guide To Sharpening by Leonard Lee, Taunton Press 1995 ($22.95 US/$32.95 CN)

About the BookWhile Leonard Lee’s book on sharpening is nearly 14 years in print, it still ranks well above other texts on the topic. Mr. Lee’s strong attention to the science behind his sharpening methods leaves readers feeling confident about using what they’ve learned. This book will teach you just about everything—no, on second thought, make that EVERYTHING—about sharpening woodworking tools, kitchen knives, craft tools and anything else that has an edge. ...

Solid Re-Saw machine

Solid Re-Saw machine

01-19-2010 12:20 AM by richgreer | 6 comments »

I was looking at the bandsaw reviews on this website and I noticed that there was no review of my bandsaw. So I decided to address this oversight by providing this review. I need to put my review into perspective. Previously, I used the band saw attachment for my shopsmith. That is an 11 inch bandsaw that is much different than this bandsaw. I have never had experience with other bandsaws that are comparable to this. Therefore, I cannot compare this bandsaw to other comparable ba...

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

Essential Tool for Perfect Results

02-14-2011 04:35 AM by thiel | 6 comments »

I use a Grizzly 10 inch (T10010 I think..) wet grinder to sharpen my tools. It’s a barebones machine which approximates similar tools from tormek and jet, and I’ve found its performance just fine. As I get better and better at using my edge tools, I’ve needed to get better at sharpening them, so I’ve invested some time in getting my rig up to final form. Here are some things I’ve learned: —It’s worth it to invest in a jig to hold your chisel/ir...

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

Grizzly G0452 6" Jointer

02-28-2008 09:30 PM by John Gray | 6 comments »

This is another tool that I’ve had for about a year. It does a beautiful job jointing and it comes with 2 push pads ( Grizzly calls them safety blocks) as standard equipment. The built in mobile base is a God send in my shop as I like to have all of my large power tools on wheels, I use them outside weather permitting. It’s 4” dust chute is very efficient. There’s not to much else to say except that I would highly recommend one to anyone looking for a 6” jointer

Dead On Tools Exhumer 9 Nail Puller

Dead On Tools Exhumer 9 Nail Puller

02-15-2011 12:57 AM by christopheralan | 6 comments »

This isn’t your average cat’s-paw style nail puller. This is the Exhumer 9 by Dead-On Tools. It actually measures 10 5/8”, but with a name like Exhumer, who cares. This is another multi-use tool with a circular saw blade nut wrench, small hammer face, two claws, and a bottle opener. Yes, a bottle opener. It works. I tried it about 12 times the first weekend I owned it…I lost count after that… Anyway, I have used the heck out of this, and it has always performed well. I have pu...

Great Japanese water stones at a good price!!

Great Japanese water stones at a good price!!

07-18-2013 03:53 AM by CypressAndPine | 6 comments »

I just received my set of Naniwa Super Stones. I got a 1000, 3000, & 8000 grit stone. I also got the Norton flattening stone. The stones were very flat and ready to use out the box. They come mounted in a cheap plastic base, but it seems sufficient. The supposed advantage of the superstones is that they don’t need to pre-soak. You just add water and sharpen. I purchased them from Sharpening Supplies online. I paid about $140 for the set. I immediately sharpened my #4 bailey p...

Have you ever pulled a tool off of your pegboard and had the wire hanger go rattling down to the bench or even worse behind the bench to the floor … Grrrr …. Talon Hooks has a product that I tried and after using them I bought more to fill up my new storage cabinet.These little sleepers have been hiding for a while; I discovered them on the internet while searching for a better way to hang my tools.These hooks are designed for 1/4” pegboard, they secure on the board with a n...
