    Consistent Wolverine Vari-Grind Angles

    I use the Ron Brown 4-way jig for the Wolverine flat grinding table. Very handy device.

    Consistent Wolverine Vari-Grind Angles

    It's an older Woodcraft grinder. The CBN wheels are from Woodturners Wonders. I opted for 180 and 350 and they seem to be working out (for me). The 350 is the wider squared-off edge version with some flat area on the sides of the wheel. The 180 has the radiused edges.

    Consistent Wolverine Vari-Grind Angles

    Consistent Wolverine Vari-Grind angles I’m guessing that this idea isn’t new, but here’s my take on setting consistent Vari-Grind angles on a Wolverine jig. Make a supply of right-angle stock to fit on/over the long V-arm. Once a desired grind angle is confirmed by way of the V-arm length...

    SOLD - Record No. 5 Jack Plane For Sale

    Wiley, right now it looks to be sold and I doubt that $10 would cover the shipping, Probably more like $15. In any case, I'll be happy to get back to you if the two fellows turn out to be ghosts. Thank you for your interest!

    Shapton GlassStone (GS) Series HR Stone

    Just Fyi, the Shapton GlassStone (GS) Series 16,000 HR Stone is typically priced at around $140 to $160. For whatever reason Lee Valley has them priced now at $109. Oddly, or perhaps highlighting a pricing error, the same stone in 12,000 grit is more expensive. Carry on. Shapton GlassStone...

    NArex Chisels - Richter/95/Paring

    I have been waiting since December for a set of Narex Richters from Lee Valley. I wanted better, but didn't want to lay out $65 to $100 per chisel for today's ultra-premium offerings. I have a vintage set of Marples Blue Chips that are my trusty beaters (a few of which are getting pretty short)...

    Oscillating Multi Tool?

    I have an older corded Fein Multimaster. I envisioned it as a go-to tool when I laid out the then $240. I was wrong. It sees very little use. It is, however a very good tool. Far less vibration than than most. I did use it on some nasty tile work and it (with a pricey cutter) got the job done...

    SOLD - Set of Six—Stanley Sweetheart Chisels

    SOLD - Set of Six—Stanley Sweetheart Chisels $85.00 Excellent bench chisels! The condition of each is better than new, as I’ve done the grunt work of flattening and polishing the backs. You can save some money, time, and effort because these classic socket handles, popularized by Stanley and...

    And then the magic smoke oozed out of the table saw ...

    A lot of aging woodworkers are giving up their shops and others are trading up to high-end SawStops, which has made for some attractive bargains out there. Keep an eye on Facebook Marketplace. There is the general marketplace and at least two Marketplace Groups that specialize in woodworking...

    Bowl Turning?!%&*#

    Was the new Pinnacle bowl gouge truly sharp? New does not mean sharp. New doesn't even mean correctly ground. These comments come from a slow learner and were hard-learned lessons. Moreover, I like and agree with what Mike Davis wrote. I think this is good advice for casual turners, even if...
