Woodworkers Discuss Hardware Sources: Woodchat Transcript December 14, 2011

Although the #woodchat team couldn’t make it, chatters still got together.

Woodchat Transcript December 14, 2011 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern

@DyamiPlotke: RT @benjamenjohnson What’s the topic(s) tonight? #woodchat @dividedlight: Sounds like we’re going to discuss hardware suppliers. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat is in Twitter tonight

@WVWoodshed: Oops, see the topic is hardware sources. Honestly, I’ve gotten most of my hardware from the big boxes. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: We can go with the #woodchat suggested topic or talk about other things.

@MansFineFurn: 1. good sources for HW/hinges/slides etc 2. Can you be profitable and do handwork (how much detail/handwork can you do) #woodchat”

@WVWoodshed: I received a hardware catalog from Veritas (Lee Valley), but haven’t shopped it yet. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I’d say lets start with a vote/suggestions on topics, if folks want to stick with proposed (HW) for a while that’s cool too #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I’ve purchased things from Rockler, Woodcraft, McFeely’s and Lee Valley – along with big box and local Ace Hdwe #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: we’re organic and free form tonight #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: When I did cabinet work I used: http://t.co/ycmOeCaL #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: #woodchat I found a good source for small wooden parts recently… Lara’s Crafts (they sell some stuff at Michaels) http://t.co/pCyboiNk

@dividedlight: Ditto for these.RT @WoodworkGuy: Ive purchased things from Rockler, Woodcraft, McFeelys and Lee Valley #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: as far as HW, I’m a big fan of Lee Valley, but for specialty stuff I also use Horton Brasses #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I find McFeelys too expensive for the same stuff…good selection of screws though #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: One off topic question I have is; How do you fund your shop? Especially when starting from scratch. #woodchat

@dividedlight: My work requires large hardware and my favorite is House of Antique Hardware. Excellent customer service. #woodchat

@imaginer99: Online retailers have great photos and selection for hardware. Only downside is shipping can be expensive due to weight. #Woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: My local Do it best (Beisswenger’s) is pretty good for small metal hardware too. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: For the work I do now I use: http://t.co/xiWAs5LL #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @dividedlight do you have a link to the House of Antique Hardware? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 Set aside a savings account or a jar or someplace to squirrel away a few bucks here and there when you get paid. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @sduffy68 I would complete jobs with the tools I had and invest something from each payment. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68 self sustaining (sales fund tools), but started not from scratch, per se, but with a well-equipped hobbyist’s shop. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @imaginer99 Yeah shipping can be a bummer. Sometimes more than $10 for a $1 part. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Mc Feely’s can be proud with their stuff, but they have sales sometimes,. I get their sq drive wood screws and pocket screws #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68 I should say, I don’t live off the shop income, my wife works and I have good savings from prior work #woodchat

@dividedlight: @sduffy68 http://t.co/H16WG5cZ excellent window and door hinges as well as locksets #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @sduffy68 Be very careful not to get caught up buying “novelty” tools & gadgets. Spend money on useful tools as you need them. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I lbuy with free shipping RT @benjamenjohnson: @imaginer99 Yeah shipping can be a bummer. Sometimes more than $10 for a $1 part. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: #woodchat http://t.co/BtM5VCI3 has a great selection of knobs and pulls from antique to modern. I always look there first.

@dividedlight: @MansFineFurn I do but it’s a pretty low standard of living. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat forgot the tag. Horton is good. A CT business. Also like Sanderson for knife hinges. Those rock.

@MansFineFurn: for reproduction stuff I like hortons: http://t.co/G7BpELr9 #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat favorite place for pulls: my lathe and a chunk of cocobolo.

@MansFineFurn: @dividedlight I think you’ve been at it a bit longer than me, but I hope one day to make it self sustaining #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @sduffy68 #woodchat I justify every major tool purchase with a project(s) that I’d save money on by doing it myself. No “extra” funding then

@MansFineFurn: RT @MKatFWW: #woodchat favorite place for pulls: my lathe and a chunk of cocobolo. @MKatFWW: #woodchat taking a DT break. Bake shortly.

@benjamenjohnson: Cool. Horton brasses has a list of hardware shown in magazines and TV shows http://t.co/KPnEEpjs #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @thewoodninja novelty tools are a problem, particularly when your are to new to recognize them from important tools. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor Yeah, that’s how I convince my wife to let me buy a lot of stuff too. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I will have to check out Hortons #woodchat

@dividedlight: @MansFineFurn I will add that I most likely wouldn’t have health insurance if my wife didn’t have a job with benefits. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68 that’s what you’ve got this community for! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: RT @dividedlight:I will add that I most likely wouldnt have health insurance if my wife didnt have a job with benefits @thewoodninja: @sduffy68 Don’t ever be afraid to ask. There are a lot of great guys here willing to help. ShopNotes magazine is a great buy too. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson You’re a pro Ben. I doubt there’s much convincing required anymore. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn DOH! How foolish of me. Just let me know I ‘m overkill before I wear out my welcome. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: RT @MansFineFurn: as far as HW, I’m a big fan of Lee Valley, but for specialty stuff I also use Horton Brasses #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @thewoodninja I’ve let my woodworking magazine subscriptions lapse…but looking at the ShopNotes website, maybe I’ll reconsider #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @thewoodninja @sduffy68 This group’s definitely not shy about steering newbies clear of impractical buys. Just ask. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: No worries @sduffy68 we’re all here to talk and learn from each other in #woodchat

@thewoodninja: I just wish #woodchat was around back 14 years ago when I got started. You guys are the best!

@MansFineFurn: RT @thewoodninja: I just wish #woodchat was around back 14 years ago when I got started. You guys are the best! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @benjamenjohnson It’s still one of my favorites. I also have WoodSmith, Wood, and Woodworker’s Journal. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: First question, are the $10 honing guides sufficient for the beginner or do I need to blow $70 on the Veritas? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor Actually, I’m always hesitant to pull the trigger on a big purchase, my wife usually ends up convincing me. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @DavidJUlschmid still on twitter for now. I’m just briefly popping in. It’s mostly moderator-less hardware talk tonight. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @thewoodninja those are all the ones I’ve given up on, except maybe wood. I’ve only kept FWW and PW. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat surprised and humbled =)

@imaginer99: @sduffy68 Looking back, I wish I didn’t buy the veritas and just learned to hold it properly. #Woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 Chris Schwartz just posted an articel about tuning a cheap honing guide: http://t.co/D2SBgXTi #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @MansFineFurn I hear you. To me one of the best things to spend subscription $$ on is the FWW website. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68 I tried a bunch, cheap and expensive, decided freehand was best – quicker, easier, and cheaper (just lock that wrist) #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Evening all #woodchat

@dividedlight: @MansFineFurn I like PW, wish I had more time to build the projects. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hello @BillGriggs how are you.? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @thewoodninja Amen to the FWW website (I have a perpetual subscription) and their cooking and homebuilding sites too! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: The downside of making a living in the shop is my lack of time to build just for fun. Most extra $ replaces bits, blades, & tools. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @sduffy68 wait for the upcoming honing guide from @Woodpeckers_Inc it’ll last a lifetime & be worth every premium penny. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: My favorite magazine is Woodwork. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: RT @MansFineFurn @thewoodninja those are all the ones I’ve given up on, except maybe wood. I’ve only kept FWW and PW. #woodchat @benjamenjohnson: @thewoodninja I used to subscribe to Wood, I liked the tool comparisons, but I didn’t really like the projects. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: There are a lot of great woodworking magazines FWW, PW , Shop Notes… #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @BillGriggs ‘evening, Bill. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat I don’t subscribe to any mags, but I do get one for free! The others I read at work.

@dividedlight: For sure! RT @thewoodninja: The downside of making a living in the shop is my lack of time to build just for fun. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68 if you have a benchgrinder, a hollow grind really helps hold a free-hand honing angle easily #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @benjamenjohnson I really feel the same but my wife made a payment twice without me knowing. I’m in for at least 3 more years! #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @sduffy68 I started with the $10 variety. Works fine. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr That’s good too, picked it up Sat. on your recommendation. Not a lot of my style of work, but inspiring indeed #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @DyamiPlotke Evening. What’s are you working on? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @DyamiPlotke Do you have a link for the honing guide? #woodchat

@dividedlight: Anyone do a major project on their own house? Like build a whole kitchen? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW hiring? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW hiring? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: Hey #woodchat sorry I’m late!

@HighRockWW: Hey #woodchat sorry I’m late!

@WoodworkGuy: Fancy that… 😉 RT @MKatFWW: #woodchat I don’t subscribe to any mags, but I do get one for free! The others I read at work.

@DJOfurnituremkr: I tend to side sharpen 98% of the time so it’s easy to hold a flat bevel. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @dividedlight I am right now. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MKatFWW @sduffy68. I have a cheap $10 honing guide. It works just fine except for when the concave jaw gets in the way. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Hey @HighRockWW Good evening #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @dividedlight coming up this summer – Kitchen. I just did a big addition in 07-08 which enabled my new shop (among other things) #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Oops meant convex #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @MansFineFurn ha! I didn’t mention all the work I do too. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @dividedlight I just replaced a tub and shower without ripping apart the rest of the bathroom. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Small side note. If any of u have a FB fan page, drop me a message. I’m trying to get the word out about everyone’s pages. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr By side sharpen, you mean freehand with strokes parallel to the blade, correct? That’s what I meant by freehand #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson Isn’t that what Schwartz addressed in his recent blog article #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW I’m not work averse #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @thewoodninja should we do it again in this forum? #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat isn’t showing up automatically tonight. Odd.

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 Exactly, I just haven’t followed his guide yet. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @dividedlight That’s when I hire someone else. #Ihatehomeimprovement #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: I like some of the industry mags, like Woodshop News. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW are you here: http://t.co/gxrfSTpX #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @MansFineFurn Nah. Let’s not clog up #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @thewoodninja Here’s mine http://t.co/FeNXxvhX thanks for doing the compilation #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @thewoodninja I still haven’t figured out what to do with my facebook page besides link to my posts. what are you planning? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I’m sure she’ll love it @HighRockWW #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @MansFineFurn Here is a link. I took a class with Harrelson years ago: http://t.co/B7ldhV8K #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @benjamenjohnson Really just want to start by getting everyone a few fans/likes to start. #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @MansFineFurn #woodchat no on my iPhone. Using the search feature of twitter app.

@HighRockWW: @WoodworkGuy Thanks…I added BB’s to the inside so that it rattles. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson That why I asked about the guides. I had been drooling over the Veritas, but Schwartz article made me think. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @HighRockWW Looks great Chris! That project may outlive us both. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr I think that’s a yes, I’ll redirect to @sduffy68, since it was his original question…http://t.co/B7ldhV8K #woodchat

@MKatFWW: Now I’m there #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @MKatFWW @MansFineFurn my iphone is dead tonight but I find that is the best way for me to participate in #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @Tooltutor Thanks! Hopefully everyone will be able to see the “Likes” on my page for a sort of master list. #woodchat http://t.co/P4ckAqG6

@dividedlight: @sduffy68 I love the veritas guide system. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 I built a gauge to make mounting my chisels consistent, but I have to fuss more than I should getting it tightened down #woodchat

@imaginer99: @HighRockWW that is a great present! I am going to try and remember that for my upcoming daughter! #Woodchat

@MKatFWW: Time to transfer tails. To drawer front. Back later. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @MansFineFurn I think there is some info on the web as well if a search is made. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson @thewoodninja FB’s a good place to post things u’d likely also tweet about but have a longer shelf life #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn @DJOFurnituremkr Thanks I may get the video #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @imaginer99 I will be posting a blog post about it in the next week and will have a Google SketchUp pattern for download. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr dale, my question was just whether the side method is freehand, side to side (I learned from Phil Lowe, same way #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @Tooltutor @benjamenjohnson True. And no matter how I feel about it, some people just prefer it to Twitter & Google+. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor and not limited to 140 character sentence-like blurbs #woodchat

@imaginer99: @HighRockWW That would be great! #Woodchat

@HighRockWW: @imaginer99 The pattern should make it easier to duplicate. I am make one for each of my daughters. #woodchat

@dividedlight: Does anyone think G+ will be the favorite platform and FB will decline? #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Off Topic Twitter??? If I want to switch account names to match my blog is there a less painful way? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor Funny that’s what I use G+ for. I have so much more interaction on G+ than Facebook #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @dividedlight One can only hope! #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: I don’t want to loss current followers, etc. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @MansFineFurn Got ya, yes free hand. I think jigs are to complicated and keep users from developing a natural skill. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @sduffy68 Don’t think there’s a less painful way. I lost quite a few when I created my @woodninja account. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @DJOfurnituremkr agreed #woodchat

@dividedlight: @thewoodninja I’m relatively new to twitter but I like it. FB’s quality seems to be declining. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @sduffy68 I think twitter’s help section had a bit on this, not sure how you maintain followers other than aggressive announcement #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 Are you asking about twitter? just go here http://t.co/hLowdBZn and change it. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @dividedlight not without some major changes. G+ fails in the sense it’s not a good platform for 3rd party developers #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @dividedlight I feel the same way. Twitter also seems like the perfect platform for quick interaction from the shop. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @DJOfurnituremkr @MansFineFurn I agree, I tried to make a jig to learn to help crosscut with a handsaw. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @DJOfurnituremkr @MansFineFurn in the end 30 days of cutting 10 cuts a day by hand did the trick… #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @thewoodninja @benjamenjohnson Agreed. FB is definitely still the most widely used and accepted. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Anyone ever done inlays? #woodchat

@dividedlight: @Tooltutor I opened a G+ account because I thought woodchat was headed there. I haven’t done anything with it otherwise. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @MansFineFurn #woodchat definitely a good balance between short tweets and long blog posts.

@thewoodninja: @Tooltutor @benjamenjohnson Hence my plight to spread the word about our fan pages. Basically all I do is mirror my Google+ posts #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs some inlays, hope to get into more when I’m done with non-inlay commissions! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @dividedlight I did that same thing. After it not working last week, I never went back. #Woodchat is my only circle.

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson Thanks for the suggestion. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @sduffy68 I don’t think you lose any followers if you change your username, many articles suggest registering your old name again #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat complete opposite for me. No interactions at all on G+. No one I know uses it. Still on fb

@thewoodninja: @dividedlight There are lot’s of great users to follow there. Awesome amounts of info available & it’s getting better. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Got to go guy’s. See you next week. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: G+ and FB – different beasts so far. G+ developing quickly. Never met anyone in my G+ circles, few in my FB friends I’ve not met #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson Painless, thats what I am talking about!!! You’re da man!!! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @dividedlight Find Al Navas on G+ and then his woodworkers circle post. Add that circle. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @BillGriggs I’m working on a frame for Christmas. #woodchat What are you working on? http://t.co/waLI255w

@thewoodninja: @Tooltutor Just go to my Google+ page & look at the people in my circles. Most of the guys here. http://t.co/Iqd7mqaS #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I find FB less “noisy” maybe because i don’t use G+ as intended, (anyone know what the intended use IS?). Still learing it. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @MansFineFurn I want to do a chess board and don’t know what glue to use. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @benjamenjohnson @dividedlight or my G+, I have Al’s list, i can share woodworking list with whomever wants it #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @HighRockWW looks great. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Yeah! What @benjamenjohnson said! Check out Al’s page! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @MansFineFurn seems the whole internet jury’s still out on that question #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @BillGriggs inlay? or veneer? #woodchat

@dividedlight: @BillGriggs because the squares have two sides of end grain? #woodchat

@MKatFWW: Transferred tails and cut the pins. Now clean out sockets. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @MKatFWW try tweetdeck & a #woodchat column.

@MKatFWW: My favorite social platform is a rocking porch w/whiskey. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor @MansFineFurn This whole internet thingy is just a fad 🙂 #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @DyamiPlotke Thanks. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: RT @dividedlight Does anyone think G+ will be the favorite platform and FB will decline? #woodchat RT @MKatFWW: My favorite social platform is a rocking porch w/whiskey. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MKatFWW Pour me a shot I am all in! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson @MansFineFurn #woodchat Oh good…I’ll just ignore it until it goes away. Save me the trouble of figuring it out. =P

@WoodworkGuy: Hello @woodbard. Great to see you at #woodchat tonight

@DyamiPlotke: @DJOfurnituremkr goodnight, Dale. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed Is that you @sduffy68? I’ll follow you now #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @woodbard Glad u made it Al. #woodchat

@woodbard: @thewoodninja thanks Kenny and Jeff! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: + 2 RT @MKatFWW: My favorite social platform is a rocking porch w/whiskey. #woodchat

@woodbard: @DyamiPlotke @dividedlight Although the jury is still out, G+ is gaining and getting better, much better. #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson Anyone ever run hardwood flooring through a planer? Is the alumina oxide coating harsh on the blades? #woodchat

@MKatFWW: Alright my fingers are cold. But it’s warmed up to 52.5 in the shop. See ya next time. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @woodbard is the Google+ Godfather of the Woodworking circle! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @WVWoodshed Many articles say you should register your old name so somebody doesn’t poach it. Just sayin. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: we did Hardware, other proposed topics were ‘how much handwork/what level of detail can you do and still be profitable #woodchat

@woodbard: @MKatFWW Good night, Matt. Sorry I missed so much of the dialog. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: I am considering purchasing chisels one per pay pay check in order to purchase higher quality. Are Two-Cherries the route to go? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor YES don’t do it! #woodchat

@woodbard: @thewoodninja LOL – thanks, Kenny! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor …or just junk the blades when you’re done #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @Tooltutor I haven’t, but It can’t be good! My neighbor ran all his deck boards through a planer to refresh the surface though #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @MKatFWW Happy dovetails Matt Have a good one. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed I saw a set of 8 Stanley Sweethearts on sale for 199 (highland?) that looks like a great deal for a darned good chisel #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @Tooltutor I ran it through my table saw and while my blade isn’t the best I could definitely tell it was duller from the effort. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard @MKatFWW Awesome! Looks like #woodchat went on without the management. Thanks guys!! Anyone possibly record this? If so, pm me

@Tooltutor: @MansFineFurn Was hoping not to have to sand off the coating. Sandpaper is cheaper than blades tho #woodchat thx for verifying

@benjamenjohnson: @WVWoodshed Two Cherries are nice, but if you’re going all out why not Lie Nielson? #woodchat

@MKatFWW: #woodchat thanks everyone.

@woodbard: @Tumblewood @MKatFWW Just got here, Vic. I missed most of it. But looks like it WAS terrific! #woodchat

@thewoodninja: I gotta go guys. It was a great #woodchat tonight. Thanks to all!

@WoodworkGuy: It has been another good #woodchat session

@Tumblewood: Just to let you know. Did a bit of mod on the Triton and great DC!! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood I got ya covered Vic…was there ever any doubt? #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Terrific, Vic – congrats!!! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @WVWoodshed No you will get tired of waiting. Send them to me to hold for you till you have a complete set. 😉 #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn Yup @sduffy68 is now @WVWoodshed #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Good night, Kenny #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Take care @thewoodninja Have a good one #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Gotta help put the kids to bed goodnight all! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @benjamenjohnson #woodchat wishful thinking slight wear became epic lore

@woodbard: @benjamenjohnson See you, Ben. Hug the kids 🙂 #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Take care @benjamenjohnson #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Everyone Amend your Follow List: RT @WVWoodshed: Yup @sduffy68 is now @WVWoodshed #woodchat

@Tooltutor: @WVWoodshed #woodchat Maybe that shouldn’t be the first thing I run through my new planer.

@WoodworkGuy: Wil do. RT @MansFineFurn: Everyone Amend your Follow List: RT @WVWoodshed: Yup @sduffy68 is now @WVWoodshed #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @Tumblewood How are you liking the Triton? I love mine! #woodchat

@woodbard: @HighRockWW @Tumblewood What was the mod? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tooltutor what kind of planer? If it’s the same as mine, I’ll send you the old blades! #woodchat

@Tooltutor: #woodchat Thanks again for another great chat everyone. Don’t have to wait until next week to chat me up.

@WoodworkGuy: Have a good one @Tooltutor #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood between you and @DyamiPlotke, and @theboisshop, I’m going to end up buying all new stuff (tritons,Festool, etc)!! #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @benjamenjohnson not sure about what going all out for LNs would run me. Just at $25-$30 each Two-Cherries would be in the budget. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard Yea, just did a quick mortise…barely any spewed bits and pieces.#woodchat

@HighRockWW: @Tooltutor Have a good evening…and same to you. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @Tumblewood Glad you are happy with it. #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Terrific, Vic! Congratulations. It looks like @theboisshop was spot on!!! #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @BillGriggs I get right on finding out the shipping cost, now whats that zip code??? 😉 #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed the LN’s are double that. The Stanley SW’s I mentioned are same style as LN, also about $25/ and well reviewed #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard And I had the worst case scenario for length of 2 1/2″ hose, etc. So, yes, VERY happy! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard of course. I hardly ever use the shop vac #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood THAT’s even better. Too much of the small-diameter hose can kill efficiency. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed here, I found it: http://t.co/eNjW2r0z check those out… #woodchat

@Tumblewood: Well, tomorrow, either cut my DT for the end cap of the Roubo, or start milling my stretchers. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn Seems I saw a chisel review/test where the Stanley’s came slightly behind the Two-Cherries. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard yes, I used 15-18’ of it. #woodchat

@woodbard: #woodchat Good night everyone. Get some good rest, and be safe.

@Tumblewood: @woodbard G’nite Al! Night all!! #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood WOW! Glad it worked so well, Vic. Can get quite lossy – but that is terrific! #woodchat

@woodbard: @Tumblewood Good night. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @woodbard Take care Al. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @woodbard Good night Al! #woodchat

@HighRockWW: Time for me to call it a night too #woodchat !

@WoodworkGuy: I’m heading out as well. Take care all #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn Dang, maybe I need to rethink this for about the third time. Thanks for the info!!! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @HighRockWW Take care Chris. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @WoodworkGuy you too Jeff. #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: All the best to everyone this week!!! Remember… #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Keep your mind on your fingers and your fingers on your hands… Peace!!! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @WVWoodshed Schwarz reviewed the stanleys, and seemed to like them as did @MKatFWW, I think? 2cherries-tanged, stanleys-socket. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Goodnight all, @Tumblewood, I’ll send you the transcript, (if i can remember how. ) #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn explain difference in tanged vs sockets. I know what tangs are, just not the difference. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: a bit of personal preference I think. Tanged need the ferrule to keep it together they want to split the handle when pounded on… #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Sockets pound the handle into the socket, no ferrule needed. I have a ton of old tanged with broken ferrules and handles…. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: no broken anything on the old socketed, not sure if its coincidental #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn ah-ha Thanks again for all the info tonight. This group is AWESOME!!! Lovin the community!!! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: There’s probably a good comparison out there if you search FWW or PW articles. get what you think will work and fits the budget.. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Maybe get one of each kind (or test drive in a store) and see what feels right to you #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MansFineFurn Great advise! #woodchat

@MKatFWW: @MansFineFurn @wvwoodshed #woodchat Chris Gochnour officially reviewed them for the magazine (stanleys). He likes them.

@MansFineFurn: @MKatFWW you just photographed them? I saw your name there, just assumed… #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: @MKatFWW @MansFineFurn Definitely jumped to the top of my list. Thanks!!! #woodchat

@weilworks26: Was really hoping to be there for #woodchat tonight, bummer. Hopefully I can catchup at work tomorrow

@DyamiPlotke: @weilworks26 I popped in and out, but it was a great #woodchat I’m looking forward to the transcript too.

@weilworks26: Looking for a good twitter client for my desktop. anyone got good suggestions? #woodchat

@weilworks26: Is there a transcript for #woodchat last night?

@DyamiPlotke: @weilworks26 I use and like tweetdeck as a desktop client. #woodchat
