Worksharp 3000 - 2 replies

Hey everyone, I have an extra worksharp 3000 and don’t have much use for it. I’m looking to sell it but I’d also trade it to someone. I’d like to make this a local deal because I’m guessing shipping the worksharp wouldn’t be too cheap but will ship if need be. I’m located in northeast Philadelphia.

Router plane - 3 replies

Hi all, I’m looking to get a router plane, I’m considering either a lee valley plane, a plane made by one of my favorite wooden hand tool makers and making one myself.

Who agrees? - 43 replies

Now this may not apply for all. For the people where money isnt an issue or for people who aren’t addicted to spending money on tools or anything else shop related this probably doesn’t apply to you.
