Engel's Coach Youtube channel has been deleted. - 5 replies

Someone gained the password to the channel and started streaming bitcoin scam videos, took several days for YT to finally get involved but they deleted the channel. Hopefully the content is restored because it’s a treasure trove of wheelwright and wagon repair work.

Who regrets their Morris Chair build? - 23 replies

It seems that everyone who builds one is happy with whatever they build and the plans. I’ve been accumulating plans and am ramping up to build one for myself. All the plans seem good but I’m looking at 3 specifically, Woodsmith, Bob Lang’s for Pop Wood, and Woodcraft designed by a guy named Lohr. Bob Lang’s seems to be th...

The NEW Rough Cut with Fine Woodworking TV series is online - 55 replies

The first episode of the new season is online. The road trips at the beginning are gone (thankfully). I expected there to be more focus on hand tools but the very first tool used is a benchtop mortiser followed by a tablesaw. Sound quality is excellent, lighting and camera angles are excellent, video resolution is low. I like that he jumps right...

What are your thoughts on beading tools? - 11 replies

I know many people just use skews but I have some homemade beading tools made from files and like them but they they are annoying to sharpen and need it frequently. Like most beading tools, mine are a C shape and come in different sizes for different beads. The Sorby Easy Beader is sort of turned inside out and looks slicker than snot on a doork...

RSS links broken - 2 replies

2 of the RSS links are broken. I checked on both mobile and desktop. Don’t know if anyone else uses them but I only use the Projects and Forum Topics RSS and didn’t notice the others were broken until today. I like them because they format correctly on mobile. All Posts RSS shows posts from 2015, guess no one uses that one. Site B...

New replies not working ... - 1 reply

Easier to show than tell but I’ve been getting the feeling that threads are getting new replies but I’m not getting notified. Today I found a thread with a new reply (I found out because it was at the top of the list) but when I open the thread there were no new replies listed. I suspect this may also be happening to my subscribed th...

Chalk lines... Is all blue chalk the same? - 9 replies

Probably a dumb question but mine fell off the roof and broke so after asking around, I’m buying a Tajima chalk line reel to replace it and wondering if I should splurge for the Tajima ultra fine chalk too. Some guys say the Tajima is worth it and snaps a better line, some say it doesn’t matter. The blue chalk I was using didn’...

Woodturning smocks: Sorby vs Easy Wood Tools vs ?? - 39 replies

I’m looking at turning smocks and am leaning toward the EWT because it’s lightweight and slick but I would prefer longer sleeves. The Sorby has long sleeves but the zipper is backward and it ‘looks’ heavy ( haven’t seen one in person). Any thoughts on these or other suggestions? edited because people are getting ...

Looking for mortiser chuck key - 6 replies

A 1/2 hp Craftex mortiser was given to me but it’s missing the chuck key. A Rohm S2A chuck (metric) key seems to fit but is too short so I can’t be sure it’s the right size; it is a 12 tooth with 6mm pilot. The pilot hole on the mortiser chuck is 6mm so it’s probably the correct size. I called Busy Bee and they couldnR...

Mahogany veneer drawer fronts, keep or toss? - 12 replies

I salvaged the drawers from a dresser a while back, for the 1/4” solid oak but I’m left with these curved fronts, plywood with a mahogany veneer. I can’t think of a good use for them. Trash or treasure? Sorry, they were face down but I’m sure most of us have seen old mahogany veneered dressers before.

One of the internet's largest message boards is going away - 1 reply

The IMDB message boards are going away effective Feb 20th. The only reason I mention it is because awhile back I predicted that message boards would die off because younger people prefer social media sites. While many websites consider themselves successful with tens of thousands of users, IMDB has users in the millions. So why are they closing?...

Final Ruling on Sawstop vs Bosch by ITC - 81 replies

If there was any discussion of this I missed it but on the 27th of January the ITC gave it’s final ruling the Bosch REAXX. Seems very final though I’m sure there is probably an appeals process. On January 27th, the U.S. International Trade Commission ordered Customs ...

Kreg - K4 vs K5 vs Porter Cable Quikjig - 41 replies

I have one from way back when it was just called a Kreg Jig because there was only one, and I get enough use from it that I wouldn’t mind upgrading. Biggest difference I see between the K4 and K5 is position of the clamping lever. I’m not doing production but if the K5 really is better then I would spend a few extra bucks on it. Anyo...
