Post: RE: Replacing Electrical Panel

Post: RE: SawStop: Eating Crow

Post: RE: I like this guy and seems pretty truthful

I want to see somebody sharpening their scorps, drawknives, and carving gouges on a $400++ ultrafine waterstone and doing it like they're not scared $hitless.

Post: RE: Back saws- Pennsylvania + Hard Point

If you want to sell a saw, you need to comment on whether or not it's straight and if it's bent whether it's a slow regular curve or kinked.

Post: RE: Air dried vs kiln dried

I'll die not having made nearly the things I've wanted to make. It would be even worse if I'd taken a detour into sawing and drying my own lumber. My hat is off to you.

Poor Paul Sellers can't make a casual observation about honing fluids he's used without being fisked half to death. Is he George Hepplewhite reincarnated?  No, but nobody on this or any other forum I...

If he noticed one product causes rust, and another does not, I'm willing to take the man at his word. The products cannot be exactly the same, since one has an aerosol propellant and one does not.
