    Craftsman Planes???

    I have a Craftsman no. 4 and no. 7. The 4 is pretty lightweight and is a bugger to keep set how I want it. Blades really thin. It gets the job done when the blade is sharp, but not the funnest plane to use. The 7 seems to be the same plane pretty much, just bigger. I have better luck using it for whatever reason.

    A Roubo from beams?

    Looks awesome, you are cruising right through this project. Are you planning to do a different species for the chop and deadman, or will they be the same as what you have used on the rest of the bench?

    Outdoor Rocker

    Chairs looking great. Nice clean joints on all those angles. You have to print to a Ricoh C6502? Sorry about that. Just kidding, im a Ricoh technician.

    Mortiser Bits

    Thanks for the post Chip. I am planning to purchase a mortiser with my refund check. I have been looking at the LV mortise chisels that you bought as well. Im glad they are a good item, and Ill be sure to pick them up. Question to you guys, what do you use to touch up the inner cone (I dont know how else to refer to it) of the chisel after you hone the outer surfaces?

    What Lighting Do You Use?

    I have a smaller shop, 12'x20' give or take, and 8' ceilings, so I dont need a heck of a lot of lighting. I use four 2' long LED bars from HD. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Lithonia-Lighting-2-8-ft-34-Watt-White-Integrated-LED-Shop-Light-SHLP-36IN-40K-80CRI-DNA-M12/301158095 Price on the website is more than Ive seem them priced at, they were on clearance a month or so ago, $12 each or so. They put off a ton of light and dont seem to use any power at all. Im sold on LED lights.

    Kumiko Lamp

    Lamp looks awesome. Ive been wanting to make myself a kumiko lamp much like yours. The kumiko bug bites pretty hard. I like using it in the lids of my small boxes now. Ive gone so far as making a dedicated table saw sled for cutting the little half laps. Not sure if anyone around here follows Matt Kenney, but im pretty sure kumiko is all he makes anymore.

    G-0715P Owners

    So Kev - I remember from your recent videos that you are planning to upgrade your jointer and planer. Does this impromptu table saw upgrade throw a wrench into that plan, or were you going to upgrade the table saw anyway?

    8 Drawer Dresser In Walnut

    Great looking project so far. "All the grits of my #4." I love that.

    SawStop inadvertent brake activation causes

    When the saw is in override mode, does it tell you if senses something that would trigger the brake in normal operation?

    Jointer knife setting jig?

    I thank myself every day that I bought a jointer with a HH. Worth the extra money and then some.

    Smoothing plane

    Im in the market for a new smoothing plane as well. Was debating between a 4 and a 4 1/2 standard angle frog. Is there that much of a difference in size between the 4 and 4 1/2? I wanted the slightly bigger one for the little bit extra mass, but not if its gonna be so much bigger that its uncomfortable. I dont have huge hands.
