Post: RE: Bosch Glide, and kapex Users

I have had both tools in my shop. Bosch gcm12sd and the kapex. Both fine saws. Accuracy is great on both. The handle on kapex is awkward to use. Very weird to get used to. Dust collection isn't gre...

The "Stanley Sweetheart" re-release chisels are decent enough for this.  They make a 1/8" I believe and are affordable and good.  Like a "poor man's" lie nielsen.

That's why I was fooled.  This lathe is the 3520.  Not a 3520a or b...  That's why I ordered the 1".  My mistake. It uses a larger post size.  But it has the better clamping system according to my re...
