    Edge Pro Sharpening System

    I have and use the Edge Pro Apex model. I made a sub-plate for the base top from aluminum and inletted rare earth magnets to serve as a blade clamp, which I have had good success with. Without the blade clamp, you have to do a two-handed "track the belly curve" of the knife while holding it...

    Living With Arthritis in the Hands

    For me, pushing 70, I've found topical Penetrex cream and the arthritis spandex gloves (tight fitting) with the fingers cut out to be helpful for the osteoarthritis in my hands. Occasionally aleve when extra bad, but I don't like oral meds. When really hurting, I naturally back off the stress...

    Woodworking vice

    Just now there is an old Desmond woodworking vice for a very reasonable price on Raleigh CL 'Tools for Sale'. This vice would be well worth restoring to a trophy condition. Good luck.

    Sharpening lube

    I use DMT 'stones' and have tried many lubricants over the years. Almost anything is better than dry, for my personal preference. But I have settled on 50-50 baby oil and mineral spirits. This gives me the viscosity I want. The baby oil is mineral spirits (with fragrance), very cheap from...

    Making a Scraper

    The way I interpret the Amazon ad is you only get 1 scraper. They sell the other 2 configurations separately.

    CAD Software of Choice

    plus one for SolidWorks. The parametric modeling concept is an awesomely powerful tool. Unfortunately, SW only becomes easy to use with a lot of practice, but I for one consider well worth it. Looking back on Sketchup and 2-D packages like AutoCad, I am now hooked on SW.

    New Member from Acworth, Georgia

    Hello Bob, welcome, and kudos for your service. Just a bit of trivia ... I lived in Cartersville, Ga for 9 years before I moved to the triangle, so I know a bit about Acworth. Love those north Ga mountains. But that was a long time ago. Happy sawdust.

    Remember to *SMILE*

    OK, I must be doing something wrong. I get the message "Your search " NCWW " did not match any eligible organizations" when I try to input this into the AMAZON SMILE search field for my charity. Any ideas?

    face shield recommendation

    I have both the plastic (I think it's polycarbonate) and the mesh face shields and I like the mesh much better, no fogging. However, the vision is not quite as clear but this has never been a problem. I have never been smacked in the face wearing either one, so I don't know if there is any...
