Ok, Adam answered before I did, with a better answer. Sounds like an interpersonal issue. I don’t have a dog in the hunt so I’ll leave you two fellows alone.

I wonder who from Williamsburg in the 70s would fly to England and go flea marketing to find saws, rules, etc for the Trades in the historic area? It’s an interesting thought experiment to ponder that...

Particularly that in the living history museum portion, they are somehow constrained to use items and implements made in the method they speculate things were made in that time period. They are foc...

Seems like there’s a fundamental misunderstanding of Colonial Williamsburg’s mission and function here. It’s clearly an internet based, online forum based set of lenses I feel you are viewing George a...

Well, I managed to find some somewhat heavier mineral oil. I will locate some tools, mix up a bit, and check it out.

I don’t own any tools made by them, but I asked George quite a few years back about a Wilson and Laubach dovetail saw. A bit pricey, as I recall. I wanted one, but I didn’t follow through on it. Proba...

Hello Timberwolf (and all)- I bought a Starrett combination square from you ten years ago. I recall that you used a mix of Ballistol and mineral oil on your tools. Is this still something you do? Jus...

Stu Tierny is an Australian sounding name. I guess I never made the connection. Another guy I’m mildly curious about is Todd Hughes. I don’t know if he posted here much.
