  1. When I make a new jig it becomes the brightest star in my "shop" so it gets hanged in place of one of the former brightest stars, which in turn gets dumped into a storage room, never to be found again.
  2. I never found the fence on my LN router plane very useful. In fact, its whereabouts are a mystery to me, I haven't seen it for at least a couple of years.
  3. I have that plane and I like it. It does remove a lot of material with each pass but it has a tendency to dig, especially when cutting with the grain. I use my shoulder planes to even things up every 3 or 4 passes of the rabbet plane.
  4. Hanger bolts: E-Z Lok flanged threaded inserts:
  5. Hand tools are nice to have and master but they're very time consuming, so don't force yourself into having to use them all the time with no power tool alternatives, considering you already have them power tools. When the wife wants some woodworking done, it has to be done quickly, right after buying all the required tools, of course.
  6. Use the brass screw to set the tension. The lever on the cap is a quick release mechanism, you pull it to remove the cap and the blade and push it to lock everything back in. Before removing the cap for the first time (pulling the lever), loosen the screw at least half a round. That's because LN ships their planes with the screw over tightened to prevent damages during transportation.
  7. Great plane, I have one and use it all the time.
  8. That's the overpriced Lie Nielsen version. They offer interchangeable jaws for chisels, skewed blades, etc.
  9. I use ethyl grain alcohol 95% pure, no problems there.
  10. I was wondering about that too. If your edges are not properly milled, chances are your heights will be different, resulting in some kind of random alignment with these 4 way clamps.
  11. I found similar pics under the name "cue lathes", but I have no idea what is it about.
  12. Sharpening and finishing are an integral part of the woodworking hobby. You will need to cope with them sooner or later. That doesn't mean you need to sharpen everything yourself, just chisels and hand plane irons. Paul Sellers free hand method is great but not the easiest way to start. A good honing jig will make things easier. Diamond stones are also great for a beginner because they require no maintenance.
  13. The planes cut fine when I use them on an edge, just to try the setup, but when I try to cut dado walls I find it very difficult. Maybe I should set the fence a bit lower, so as to prevent the base of the plane from touching the bottom of the dado if you know what I mean. I will try that next time.
