Post: Re: Ray Iles Mortise Chisel Issue

The Iles factory is still firmly based in 19th century tradition. They make great tools, but they are obviously not so concerned about the exact width of their morticing chisels, because that wasn't a...

Post: Re: Hell has Frozen Over

The difference between a standard Stanley blade and a 1/4" thick behemoth at 30 degrees is about 5 degrees. A 4.5 mm thick blade like in a lot of wooden planes makes the diference 2 to 3 degrees. Shar...

Post: Re: FWW (August): "Backsaws that Can Do It All"

When the teeth are fine (like 15 tpi or finer), then crosscutting with a rip tooth works allright. But I absolutely don't like a coarser ripsaw for crosscutting. It just works awfull.[br][br]And I sur...

I would say that 15 to 20 thou is still a bit far from the edge to see much effect. It is normal to feel more resistance. In other words, the extra resistance indicates that something is happening. Yo...

I am an advocate of keeping it simple. Forget about fancy adjustment mechanisms. And if you want a 90 degree board plus a mitering board, it is easier and a lot quicker to make two simple ones, then t...

Sure plenty of work arounds.[br][br]My tenon saws are about 9 to 10 cm deep. And they are pretty big. I guess the height of your fence is 5 cm. So I loose about half of my tenon saw. Using a panel sa...
