WTB....hand saws - 10 replies

Ebay is too crazy and I can’t find anything locally. Hoping to get a couple older Disston saws. I’d like to get a rip saw and a crosscut saw to start. I have a Japanese saw for jointery. Looking for users, doesn’t have to be pretty. Just straight and sharp and in decent shape. I don’t mind giving them some TLC but s...

Stanley vs. the other guys.... - 35 replies

Here in the US at least, it seems that Stanley planes are the standard (not best, but most common). I assume it’s because there are SO many of them. I’m trying to start my plane collection and of course most classifieds are Stanley and ebay is flooded with them. I have been straying a bit and seeing some others, Millers Falls, Sargen...

I get to do a wood gloat!!! - 22 replies

Ok, I’m not generally one to gloat but I figure in this hobby, my chances to gloat will be very far and few between. Plus this is too good not to share. Anyways…just a few shots of the load I brought home today. The vast majority of it I believe is just poplar so nothing special. I think a few of the thick boards on top are oak and p...

Bit braces and round shank bits - 35 replies

I’d like to get a bit brace. Which ones can use new round shank bits? I’ve read some can, some need tapered. I’d like to be able to use easily available new bits in case I can’t find older bits. Also, I’ve been looking on ebay and there are quite a few different braces. I’ve been looking mostly at Stanley a...

WTB...hand planes - 9 replies

Newb here trying to amass some tools. Looking for my first planes. Something along the lines of a #4, #5, maybe even a big ‘ol #7. A block and shoulder plane would be nice too. I’d like old vintage but not into the collector aspect. Just looking for some solid workers that are ready to shave. Let me know if you have anything to sell.

Craftsman 6 1/8" jointer price check.... - 12 replies

In my local CL for $100. Just wondering if it’s an ok deal or not. Don’t know that I need a jointer, but I like the idea of easily being able to start my projects with square wood, at least until I learn to do it with a plane. Description: 6” Jointer in great running condition. Two sets of blades both newly sharpened...

Cheapest tools worth buying? - 39 replies

Ok, new to all this. I’ve been reading and watching. I just got a table saw so I’m good there. But after watching loads of videos and reading tons of posts, I’ve decided that I’m really more interested in more traditional woodworking at this point. I’ll end up being a hybrid woodworking no doubt, some hand tools, so...

School me on table saws please - 105 replies

New to woodworking…I’ve been wanting to get into it for a very long time. My boss is a hobby woodworker and has a small shop and wants to help teach me some stuff which is pretty cool. In the mean time, I want to start picking up a few things I can use at my own house for small projects. I figured the first thing I could really us...
