46 Woodworkers Chat About Tools: Woodchat Transcript November 9, 2011

Another great night for #woodchat with 46 woodworkers contributing and sharing their knowledge about great places to get tools and how to care for them. A lot of focus on buying used hand tools but not excluding bigger items like a router table or a table saw.

Tonight’s topic was chosen by the #woodchat participants through a poll. Next week’s topic will likely be “Getting Started and Motivated.” If you want a different topic covered, make sure to vote in the poll.

@Torch02: @MansFineFurn Don’t feel bad – I’m usually a Diet Mountain kinda guy for #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Topic tonight is getting the right tools and taking care of them #woodchat

@asliceofwood: What is the most important tool you think should be taken care of? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: How long do you guys normally go for, I have to put the kids to bed right now? I’ll be drinking a Lake Superior Oatmeal Stout #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: Evening #woodchat How’s everyone doing tonight? #woodchat

@sduffy68: Doing great @mitwoodworks!! How about you?#woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @asliceofwood I think I would put mine as all equal. I’m pretty much a hand tool guy. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Welcome to #woodchat for 11/9/2011. Tonight’s topic is acquiring and caring for tools. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: I feel like i’m at AA. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Great @mitwoodworks. And you? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: There are some interesting ways to acquire tools, who would like to share their idea or question? #woodchat

@imaginer99: @DJOfurnituremkr Great taste! #woodchat

@dividedlight: @DJOfurnituremkr I really take care of my tools and I get them fixed when they break. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @asliceofwood Add to that keeping you blade edges sharp. #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: Port City Monumental IPA here. Good stuff.#woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I have always liked combing flea markets for other tools #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Neighbors moving away RT @uppercutwood: … interesting ways to acquire tools, who would like to share their idea or question? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: you can get some great finds at auctions and yard sales/flea markets #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @uppercutwood Don’t ever underestimate the power of Craigslist when starting out, especially for power tools #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: and ebay#woodchat

@uppercutwood: There are lots of people who get GAS – Gear Acquisition Syndrome, you see that with woodworkers, fisherman, any hobby #woodchat

@uppercutwood: One way is to start with a basic set, and then only buy tools when you can’t make progress on a project without a given tool #woodchat

@dividedlight: @uppercutwood I’ve purchase a few tools used. That’s always an adventure. #woodchat

@sduffy68: Just acquired a Stanley No. 6C for $20.00. Needed cleaned a bit but otherwise seemed in good condition. #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: #woodchat hello guys whats the topic tonight

@WoodworkGuy: Yard/estate sales can be good. But sometimes they are really proud of their stuff #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: My favorite shop: http://t.co/ZAtsAsEg #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @uppercutwood I’d be curious if anyone has experience with the popular tool pushers – Patrick Leach or Hyperkitten, etc #woodchat

@sduffy68: Should I sand the sole and the sides?#woodchat

@uppercutwood: Good tips are to buy on craigslist, ebay, flea markets, etc. #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @MansFineFurn i’ve been burned a few time on ebay. even when i ask all the right questions. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sleepydogwood acquiring and caring for the right tools #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: Buy quality the first time, everytime #woodchat

@sharpendwood: Hey everyone#woodchat

@MansFineFurn: I get my tools from shannon when he clans his shop #woodchat

@sduffy68: I actually found this plane in the pawn shop. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: talk people down when dealing on craigslist. most just want the tool gone #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @DJOfurnituremkr I’ve found that I sharpen my chisels more often since I made a jig for setting up the distance on my honing guide #woodchat

@imaginer99: @uppercutwood I agree on only buying what you need, but the prob i run into is which brand? #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @uppercutwood I did that yesterday. Finally bought 4 50” parallel clamps after 12 yrs of woodworking because I had no other option #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex Yes I have bought from http://t.co/jJgmly8N Patrick Leach and he’s been great. Online and at WIA. #woodchat

@ebeckham29: Missing #woodchat for this….

@DJOfurnituremkr: I used to be a power to junkie. View link after #woodchat: http://t.co/nNwBjipd #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @thewoodninja I hope you bought the @jettools clamps #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: Cool, something I been doing all summer #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @UserOfWood yeah, you need to be a saavy shopper sometimes with ebay, but more often, a decent deal with a little cleanup. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I’ve had rotten luck at garage and estate sales. All I ever find are candy dished and kids clothes #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @imaginer99 the brand depends on the tool, some companies are better at different things #woodchat

@asliceofwood: sales at local tool stores and the up coming BLACK FRIDAY! great deals #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: I was overwhelmed at Leach’s WIA booth. So many things, and I know so littel about selecting good stuff. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: I’ve been getting more into hand tools in the last yr. Like the stronger sense of “hands-on” #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: I’ve had to bow out of many ebay auctions when the prices started getting too high. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @uppercutwood Had to go with 2 jorgensen & Bessey as I only have local access to Lowe’s & Home Depot #woodchat

@dividedlight: @thewoodninja I purchased a rockwell lathe on craigslist. A new motor and some belts and it’s as good as new.#woodchat

@UserOfWood: @benjamenjohnson same here, at least out west where i’m at. it seems there much more back east. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson Garage sales are hit and miss #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @TheRealNeal prices can sky rocket quick on ebay #woodchat

@HighRockWW: Hey #woodchat how is everyone doing tonight!

@MansFineFurn: For stanley planes Leach’s Blood and Gore page is a great resource for research#woodchat

@uppercutwood: @HighRockWW Welcome! #woodchat

@csp2430: Decide on the job, then make sure you have the tools you need. Not other way round. #woodchat #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @HighRockWW Good evening, Chris! #woodchat

@Torch02: @JinkerPlex With Patrick, you really need to know what you want. He’s not a “browsing” store. That said, he’s sold me good things #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I have a new, contractor version, of the Stanley Block Plane. With tuning and honing this plane works fine. #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: I like jet clamps the best out of the ones I have used #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @HighRockWW great! how are you chris? #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: I’d like to start getting more hand saws and a good brace. Any suggestions on brands and what to look for? #woodchat

@imaginer99: Is it better to store planes on the side or bottom down? #woodchat

@UserOfWood: i’ve had good luck with josh at http://t.co/iXRDjWIK #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Got a great deal @ Woodcraft on #4, 5, & 6 Groz bench planes. $85 + shipping. Very pleased with them. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: know your price limit, and keep looking, if not, its the market RT @asliceofwood: @TheRealNeal prices can sky rocket quick on ebay #woodchat

@swedishiron: Hey Guys.. new to #woodchat I’ve had the best luck buying my tools at auctions.. there are good auctions where the ebay seller buy #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: On the plus side, my father in law retired being a mechanic and I got a whole bunch of his tools — no woodworking tools though #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @Torch02 Good tip. I’m still trying to figure out what I want, I suppose. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @asliceofwood @TheRealNeal Yeah, ebay auctions can ratchet up quick. Sometimes you can snipe a deal, but not often #woodchat

@imaginer99: @TheRealNeal Same here, tried sharpening some old ones but need to look at what’s out there #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Disston saws and a good book on saw sharpening RT @TheRealNeal: Id like to start getting more hand saws … #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: Is it just me or are Josh’s prices generally much lower than Patrick Leach’s? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: Hello. #woodchat

@csp2430: @imaginer99 I store them bottom down – gently. #woodchat

@sduffy68: Was $20 to much for a Stanley No6C?#woodchat

@Torch02: @asliceofwood @TheRealNeal The urban legend is used LN planes selling for more on eBay than new ones cost direct! #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @imaginer99 Store on bottom if on wood. You risk a cut when stored on side. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @WoodworkGuy especially on much needed tools or tools that can be easily restored #woodchat

@kweinert: I got a perfectly servicable 14” bandsaw from Craigslist – 20 years old or so but it did a fine job. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @Torch02 I don’t doubt that. SCAMMERS #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: I stoere my planes on te sole sitting on cork #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: ditto RT @csp2430: @imaginer99 I store them bottom down – gently. #woodchat

@csp2430: Hi to everyone saying Hi. #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: I found a nice rip saw today for $5 but it needs some TLC but I think it will be worth the work #woodchat

@dividedlight: @Torch02 If only I kept my boxes. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Many plans will tell you what tools you need to complete the project. Thos. Moser’s book is a good one http://t.co/jALdzZrP #woodchat

@imaginer99: @DJOfurnituremkr @csp2430 not worried about cut, just the keeping the edge #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @Torch02 I’ve seen them get real close. Don’t undersatnd the mentality there #woodchat

@Torch02: @asliceofwood Not scamming, so much as the thrill of the auction #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @TheRealNeal Ron Herman’s sharpening DVD from PopWood is great to learn how to sharpen. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I’ve heard many people say they’ve had luck on Craiglist, but I don’t have the time to watch every hour. #woodchat

@csp2430: I have to stop buying saws at flea markets and learn to sharpen the ones I have. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: No ,sound about right RT @sduffy68: Was $20 to much for a Stanley No6C? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Buying old tools and fixing them up is a great option. High quality, low cost, and you have to learn how to maintain them. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @WoodworkGuy: @TheRealNeal Ron Hermans sharpening DVD from PopWood is great to learn how to sharpen. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @csp2430 Maybe I need to find some local flea markets! #woodchat

@imaginer99: @uppercutwood Thanks i needed this! #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @benjamenjohnson thats what craigslist on smartphones is phone. you can always check on the go #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: You need to know if they’re worth it first RESEARCH! RT @uppercutwood: Buying old tools and fixing them up is a great option. … #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Anyone have thoughts on the Scary Sharp system? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Sounds like a good price to me RT @sduffy68: Was $20 to much for a Stanley No6C? #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @benjamenjohnson There is a site called heycraig that will e-mail you when your search terms come up on Craigslist. i.e.”Bandsaw” #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @thewoodninja where is that sold? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @benjamenjohnson the best deals I have found are from local online auctions #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @JinkerPlex: There is a site called heycraig that will e-mail you when your search terms come up on Craigslist. i.e.”Bandsaw” #woodchat

@csp2430: Restoring is a good start on learning to maintain them. RT @uppercutwood: Buying old tools and fixing them up is a great option. #woodchat

@sduffy68: I bought a Delta Jointer on Craigslist was fairly satisfied after tuning it a bit. #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @uppercutwood I’m thinking more about brand/model (Disston, etc.) I’ll get to sharpening later 🙂 #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @HighRockWW Yeah, are those the auctions you and Todd never tell me about? 🙂 #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Anyone ever had good luck at Estate Sales (olddeadwoodworkers..com) #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @asliceofwood It isn’t that I know of. Just using varying grits of sandpaper for sharpening. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: RT @JinkerPlex: @benjamenjohnson There is a site called heycraig that will e-mail you when your search terms come up on Craigslist. i.e.”Bandsaw” #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @JinkerPlex Thanks, I’ll look into that! #woodchat

@sduffy68: I bought the 6C plane at a pawn shop. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Has anyone used Rob Cosman’s Hand Plane Revival DVD? I’ve enjoyed it and the IBC blade. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @sduffy68 Glad it tuned up nicely. Did you have 2 travel far for it? I had to go the next state over 2 get my craig’s list jointer #woodchat

@kweinert: On Craigslist out here in Denver I either see stuff that’s not worth looking at or it’s like this: DELTA UNISAW table saw – $1200 #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @thewoodninja ha, ok. you can tell I haven’t done any sharpening. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @sleepydogwood I’ve been using Electrolysis as a rust remover with great results! Bigger stuff I use Evaporust. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I am having old planes restored by Steve Nisbett – the guy on eBay that re-machines planes #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @thewoodninja it works great but I prefer stones… #woodchat

@sduffy68: In my area there are some good estate sales but most do not turn up quality tools. Sort of luck of the draw. #woodchat

@swedishiron: @kweinert the Denver Craigslist rarely lists old hand tools.. well at reasonable prices #woodchat

@csp2430: Evaporust works great. For surface rust, I like to use citric acid. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @asliceofwood Me either. I just got some new planes today & it seems like the cheaper option to start. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @thewoodninja Hmm last tweet didn’t go through. I use scary sharp. It’s easy if stuff is already sharp. not so easy otherwise #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Works fine, RT @asliceofwood varying grits of sandpaper for sharpening. Get a piece of broken granite from a counter guy (free) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I use my Tormek to regrind a bevel and Sigma Water stones to hone #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Hi folks! Sorry a bit late… we have company at the house, so may be back and forth some. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @HighRockWW where do you get your stones from? #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @uppercutwood for vintage stereo equipment, but not tools :)#woodchat

@sduffy68: @dyamiplotke had to drive 2.5 hours from WV to VA #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @JinkerPlex yea I picked up a LN #7 for $100 new condition. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JimAAshley glad you’re here #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @HighRockWW What’s your best guess of cost to get the required stones etc. to get started? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @thewoodninja i might get some planes for Christmas (maybe) and i need to learn to sharpen #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: don’t forget refurbished tools they can be a great deal and most have at least a year warranty #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: The best option, if you can afford it is to buy LN new. You CAN’t go wrong with them, except the empty wallet…#woodchat

@HighRockWW: @JinkerPlex I still get emails from them on new actions but not tools lately. I will let you know the next time #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @thewoodninja depends on the stones, king stones are cheap. I got the Sigmas. Sandpaper works too. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @uppercutwood thanks! #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @HighRockWW Rub it in, dude. 🙂 #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: @HighRockWW A $100? You stole that thing for that price! #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: #woodchat what’s up everyone? Glad to be here.

@DyamiPlotke: @sduffy68 Not too bad. I had to go from Long Island to Mid Connecticut. About the same time. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @LaMacchiaDesign Hello. #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @MansFineFurn Therein lies the problem-wallet’s already empty 🙂 #woodchat

@csp2430: Veritas are excellent planes, as well. Bit cheaper than LN. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @asliceofwood Without having used LN or Lee Valley to compare, I’m impressed with the Groz from Woodcraft #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @kweinert Some people are just too proud of their stuff. Got lucky on ebay with a Craftsman 10” saw in great condition for $110. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood sharpening is not hard. Lie Nielson teaches you on youtube and has plans for their sharpening helper jig #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @LaMacchiaDesign Glad you could make it #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @thewoodninja: @asliceofwood Without having used LN or Lee Valley to compare, Im impressed with the Groz from Woodcraft #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @asliceofwood @highlandwood is here in Atlanta so I go there #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @thewoodninja i thought about those. did you get the package deal? #woodchat

@sduffy68: @DyamiPlotke Here in my area there just isn’t the market for older quality tools or newer power tools. Its luck or junk. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Not a fan of their blade adjusters but love LV in general RT @csp2430: Veritas are excellent planes, as well. Bit cheaper than LN. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: LUCKY! RT @HighRockWW: @asliceofwood @highlandwood is here in Atlanta so I go there #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: I try to buy quality tools so that I know the problem is me, not the tool. #woodchat

@csp2430: Just have to make sure you can recognize ‘sharp’. RT @uppercutwood: @asliceofwood sharpening is not hard. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @thewoodninja Did you have to tune the Groz much? #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @asliceofwood Negative. Individually bought #4, 5, & 6. $85 + shipping #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: @uppercutwood I just got a IBC blade chip breaker and they are pretty nice but I still think I like Hock blades better #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex good point Aaron, don’t buy expensive tools until the tools are holding you back, not your skills #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @JinkerPlex I’m the same, though sometimes I break the tools and I say that’s the tool, not me. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @thewoodninja ok #woodchat

@sduffy68: Anyone have luck with the Wood River planes from Woodcraft? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sleepydogwood What do you like better about the hock blades #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: #woodchat I like my LN, Veritas, and old Stanley planes. They each come with pros and cons.

@TheRealNeal: I have a few of the Woodriver planes-the low angle block plane is excellent. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @TheRealNeal Get an old stanley plane and just buy a new iron (LN/Woodcraft/Hock) Makes a HUGE difference (Love the HOCK) #woodchat

@Torch02: I would like to thank #woodchat for making the rest of my timeline unreadable 😉

@WoodworkGuy: @asliceofwood I like the L-N sharpening kit and the sharpening article in the 8/10 FWW #woodchat

@uppercutwood: When the reason you can’t get a good surface is the plane, not your sharpening or planing skills, then maybe get a new plane #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: How about pawn shops? 1) I Never find good deals 2) I don’t want fenced goods — at least I’ve heard. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @DyamiPlotke I paid the extra $3.50 for the sharpening service & was making shavings in less than 10 mins. Still need honing tho #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Anyone think about trying Japanese planes or building your own Krenov style? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @sduffy68 Shannon tried them in a view recently. He said there were nice, but not quite a Lie-Nielson. #woodchat

@sharpendwood: The woodriver stuff seems to be good entry level, no? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: how difficult is it to build a hand plane? is it cheaper? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @JinkerPlex lol…who me..:) #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Yes, IMHO, RT @sharpendwood: The woodriver stuff seems to be good entry level, no? #woodchat

@sharpendwood: RT @DJOfurnituremkr: Anyone think about trying Japanese planes or building your own Krenov style? #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @DJOfurnituremkr i made a wooden plane from a Hock kit. it was fun and worked really well #woodchat

@kweinert: I had a 6” jointer and 18/36 drum sander shipped from NY to Denver. Bought off a WW met on Charles Neil’s site #woodchat

@sonicfedora: Just got here. If we are talking about woodriver planes… I have the 6. I’m happy with it. My next plane will be a lv though.#woodchat

@uppercutwood: @asliceofwood it’s not hard. @morton just built one from a hock kit #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: Thats my next plane direction RT @DJOfurnituremkr: Anyone think about trying Japanese planes or building your own Krenov style? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @kweinert how much was shipping? #woodchat

@imaginer99: @asliceofwood I saw a video on it and it looked pretty easy. Plan on building a couple myself! #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @DJOfurnituremkr I’ve thought of taking a shot at a Hock Krenov kit. #woodchat

@sduffy68: @DyamiPlotke I consider LN and Veritas to have higher expectations, but the Wood Rivers are more in my price range. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @uppercutwood is it cheaper? #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: @sharpendwood I’ve built a couple of them and I have one built by Krenov himself1 #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: I watched that. Made me want to get one! RT @uppercutwood: @asliceofwood its not hard. @morton just built one from a hock kit #woodchat

@kweinert: @MansFineFurn Around $200/$250 as I recall. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @WoodworkGuy do it! it’s not that hard and you can shape the plane anyway you want. Report back on your build 🙂 #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Japanese planes are my favorite: http://t.co/tbZhtH50 #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @DJOfurnituremkr here’s the one i made. http://t.co/xj0OJoue #woodchat

@Black_SheepWW: I have all king stones except my 8000 great is a norton. all have worked well. Purchased at woodcraft. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @DJOfurnituremkr I have built several Krenov style planes including my G&G planes and love them with Hock irons #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: I think I just like doing business with Ron Hock better than IBC #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr I’m trying to avoid the japanese tool trend, I’m not good at my current culture of tools yet #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @UserOfWood Very nice! I really like the Hock blades. #woodchat

@imaginer99: @UserOfWood Nice! #woodchat

@csp2430: Nice work. RT @UserOfWood: @DJOfurnituremkr heres the one i made. http://t.co/sBIctZ67 #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @sleepydogwood I can full appreciate that, Hock is a great guy. Is there any difference in performance? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood I want the kit so I can get a hands-on idea on the design. Read Krenov’s books but want something tangible #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @UserOfWood Nice, Maybe I’ll have to try one. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: can you get a cheap plane and just use the parts for a build? #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: @sleepydogwood i’ll second that! I’d rather give me money to Ron Hock #woodchat

@uppercutwood: We’ve talked a lot about hand tools and buying them. Regarding care of tools, does everyone have a Wooby for their hand tools? #woodchat

@JimAAshley: Only Japanese tool I have is a flush cut saw. #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @benjamenjohnson it’s a fun project, and not that hard #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: #woodchat I have a set of Norton’s which are ok. I also have a Japanese stone that I really like. I’d like to try ceramic next.

@Torch02: @sduffy68 @DyamiPlotke There’s also something to be said for buying something handmade locally instead of mass-produced from China #woodchat

@thewoodninja: How about a vote for the very first tool to buy when getting started? #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @uppercutwood School me, Matt. What the heck is a woobie? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood What’s a Wooby? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood I have a wooby sitting around and some oil for it, but I’ve never used it. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @WoodworkGuy David Finck has a good book on making wood planes: http://t.co/uDxocfZy #woodchat

@csp2430: yea, but I hate Chris S’s name for it. RT @uppercutwood: Regarding care of tools, does everyone have a Wooby for their hand tools? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @DJOfurnituremkr @UserOfWood I want to get a couple of Hock blades for my 65 block and No 4. Just order them with the Krenov kit! #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: I not gotten to use or sharpen them enough to tell the IBC does come sharpened and the Hock needs to be honed but besides that #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Define Wooby please? RT @uppercutwood:. Regarding care of tools, does everyone have a Wooby for their hand tools? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @asliceofwood cheap planes normally have thin irons, better off buying a decent iron #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Old oily rag for wiping down tools. Rust prevention. RT @benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Whats a Wooby? #woodchat

@sduffy68: @Torch02 agreed, but sometimes price is the ring that rules them all. #woodchat

@csp2430: It’s an oily rag. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @Torch02 TOTALLY AGREE! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @csp2430 What is your name for it. #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @WoodworkGuy i’ve bought some of Hock’s replacement blades and really like them #woodchat

@sduffy68: Do you have to sharpen a wooby? — Just Kidding!!! #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood rag with oil #woodchat

@csp2430: Oily rag? But I guess I never actually call it anything.@uppercutwood #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: On the Wooby, I’ve never had a rust problem in my shop. So I don’t use one #woodchat

@asliceofwood: Thats a complicated name. RT @MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood rag with oil #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Yes. A wooby soaked in Jojoba oil. #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: Oily rag, huh? Then I have a ton of them under my old beater car. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I live in Washington. Our skin rusts. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Bag full of microfiber rags at Home depot ~$5, 8oz bottle of camellia oil, ~$20 #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: I made a plane last night #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sleepydogwood pictures? #woodchat

@thewoodninja: I can’t say I didn’t learn anything tonight. I now know what a wooby is! #woodchat

@Morton: @WoodworkGuy @uppercutwood that’s why I started with a hock kit. Training wheels. Then jump off from there. Ron is an awesome guy. #woodchat

@csp2430: Yep that’s what I use. RT @MansFineFurn: Bag full of microfiber rags at Home depot ~$5, 8oz bottle of camellia oil, ~$20 #woodchat

@imaginer99: I’ve never had a problem with rust, are you in a humid climate? #Woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I don’t want to hear that you were causing trouble at #woodchat tonight because I wasn’t around to keep an eye out 🙂

@UserOfWood: @uppercutwood i’m up in Bothell not far from you #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: My favorite tool: Stanley #80 scraper, best buy ever #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @sleepydogwood well let’s see it …. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Let’s talk about power hand tools. What power hand tools, what brands, and what sources? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I need a new handheld router, any experience with the PC 890? #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood LOL #woodchat

@dividedlight: @imaginer99 I live in the northeast and rust is a problem. Weather change. #woodchat

@csp2430: I used to live in a dry climate. Now 1 kilometre from the Pacific Ocean with sub tropical rainforest at the end of the road. Yikes #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Rather broad, can you narrow scope?RT @uppercutwood: … power hand tools. What power hand tools, what brands, and what sources? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I’m partial to my Dewalt 14.4 driver with *gasp* Nicads. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @uppercutwood #woodchat Power to the people! I like DeWalt but Hitachi has been doing good in reviews lately

@uppercutwood: @UserOfWood Dude I should come crash at your house, eat your food, and mess up your shop! 🙂 #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @dividedlight everything rusts up there #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @uppercutwood No opinion on the PC 890, but the consensus vote when I bought last year was the Bosch kit. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: It’s ok, not as good as the older version RT @uppercutwood: I need a new handheld router, any experience with the PC 890? #woodchat

@dividedlight: @uppercutwood I have three and I like them a lot. #woodchat

@csp2430: Triton routers are great! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex did you get the Bosch kit, which one? #woodchat

@imaginer99: I like dewalt also but rigid usually has similar quality but lower price. #Woodchat

@UserOfWood: @uppercutwood funny, but we should hook up, we are starting up a Modern Woodworkers Assoc here in Seattle #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @uppercutwood Looked at the 890. Nice unit. Got a better deal on Hitachi M12VC and really like it. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @benjamenjohnson no gasping. I’ve dumped almost all my NiCads. #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @DavidJUlschmid @asliceofwood yea it is ridiculous some of the things they pass off as tools #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @dividedlight You have three of the PC890s? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Love my little Bosch Colt, use it for lots of things instead of the bigger routers #woodchat

@Black_SheepWW: Very happy with the Bosch plung Router

@#woodchat

@sduffy68: @JinkerPlex was it the 1617 evs kit? I am considering it, but was looking for confirmation. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @uppercutwood #woodchat All my routers are Craftsman. Figure if I’ll be able to frankentool them if they break. Yay for electronics skills!

@LaMacchiaDesign: Agreed RT @MansFineFurn: Love my little Bosch Colt, use it for lots of things instead of the bigger routers #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: Let’s see how many @DyamiPlotke has 🙂 RT @uppercutwood: @dividedlight You have three of the PC890s? #woodchat

@imaginer99: @UserOfWood I’ll remember , trying to move up to that area soon! #Woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @uppercutwood I got the Bosch 1617, 2.25hp comes with fixed and mobile base. Love it so far. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I want soft start, variable speed, 1/2” collet, pc bushings. dust collection, lighting, are extras. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood I have an older 690. Been pretty solid for years. Not much experience hand held, it’s usually in my table #woodchat

@asliceofwood: I got a craftsman…works good so far #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @TheRealNeal I only have one PC890, but I have 9 routers overall. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @LaMacchiaDesign the colt doesn’t have a 1/2” collet #woodchat

@ebeckham29: Hello #woodchat#woodchat

@dividedlight: @uppercutwood two mounted in router tables and one hand held with two bases. I don’t care for the plunge base.#woodchat

@thewoodninja: I have the PC 693 w/fixed & plunge bases. Love it. #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: http://t.co/WRcLi9NF #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @MansFineFurn I love mine after I returned the first one that burnt out after an hour. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson My 690 almost cut my cajones off the other day #woodchat

@Seanw78: @JinkerPlex I’ve gotten a few things from hyperkitten. Dividers and a brace I needed. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: nope, it’s only flaw RT @uppercutwood: @LaMacchiaDesign the colt doesnt have a 1/2” collet #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DyamiPlotke of all your routers, how do you like the 890 #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @sduffy68 Only quirk so far on the Bosch 1617 is that you can’t use typical PC style bushings. #woodchat

@imaginer99: @uppercutwood I have a plunge craftsman 3hp, it’s big but does everything! #Woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @dividedlight #woodchat. Do you make wood and glass projects? I love the combination. I’d love to hear some design/building tips!

@uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn the Colt height adjustment is also crap. the base is also too small. I got an aftermarket base. #woodchat

@sduffy68: @JinkerPlex whats the workaround? for the PC bushings. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex the Bosch proprietary bushing system is dumb #woodchat

@imaginer99: @uppercutwood I’m curious , does your router hang low? #Woodchat

@TheRealNeal: Good to know! RT @DyamiPlotke: @TheRealNeal I only have one PC890, but I have 9 routers overall. #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: Ouch RT @uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson My 690 almost cut my cajones off the other day #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Yeah, mine sent me to the emergency room earlier this year. Stung like a bastard, no permanent damage #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @uppercutwood More Bosch 1617: You can buy adapter that accepts standard PC bushings. Ring inside a ring inside a ring, but works. #woodchat

@Seanw78: @sleepydogwood I second the jet clamps #woodchat

@dividedlight: @DavidJUlschmid I do. I had big plans for artsy projects but I mostly build windows and doors for houses. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @DavidJUlschmid I’d like to try glass etching, It looks pretty easy to do. #woodchat

@csp2430: Better than Besseys? RT @Seanw78: @sleepydogwood I second the jet clamps #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood I haven’t used my 890 too much. I like my Bosch 1617EVS best. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @uppercutwood Don’t used the depth adjustment as much, but it’s never slowed me down to badly, it’s not a plunge router afterall #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Found a great way to get the SWMBO happy. She wanted to learn to scroll saw. Now she’s into woodworking! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JinkerPlex still dumb #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @JinkerPlex You can also replace the black base with a clear base. #woodchat

@sduffy68: @dividedlight do you build exterior entry doors? #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: I have seven routers and I just got a new Ridgit the little one I like #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @dividedlight Have you done stained glass? Foil or came? #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @DyamiPlotke like mine best too, but only competition in my shop is a freebie Ryobi I was gifted. What a POS. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @DavidJUlschmid I’m going to start a blog this winter. #woodchat

@Black_SheepWW: The Bosh have soft start. #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: Yeah i dont like how the base and motor body interact, very clumsy & awkward adjusting RT @uppercutwood: @MansFineFurn. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: Anyone have the big boy Festool router? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: I love my 690 mounted in a lift with a digital readout. set it to the depth you want, hit zero, and then back it off #woodchat

@imaginer99: @csp2430 I have both and they both work great but jets are nicer but cost a little extra too. #Woodchat

@sleepydogwood: The older PC are a lot better that the new stuff #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @DyamiPlotke The clear base is another good route, Dyami. #woodchat

@csp2430: @woodworkguy We have quite a few ladies in our club who like the scroll work and pyrography. Me? – I prefer joinery. #woodchat

@dividedlight: I build entry doors.RT @sduffy68: @dividedlight do you build exterior entry doors? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I am looking for handheld. I’ll definitely put on a clear base plate. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: amen: RT @sleepydogwood: The older PC are a lot better that the new stuff #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @csp2430 @Seanw78 @sleepydogwood Hmmm.. will have to check Jet clamps out. Need some more… #woodchat

@ebeckham29: Anyone try the Triton brand? I’ve been looking at them @Woodcraft but haven’t ever used them #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @Seanw78 @sleepydogwood #woodchat Hey, Sean Wiz New Ski. What Jet clamps are you referring too? Parallel jaw clamps? I have Ponys.

@benjamenjohnson: @sleepydogwood when hand routing it would be nice to have a built in speed control and soft start, but again mine lives in table #woodchat

@woodshaver101: I like my stanley #45 plane for small runs of molding#woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @MansFineFurn @sleepydogwood I sadly second that… #woodchat

@csp2430: yep – have 3 – fantastic RT @ebeckham29: Anyone try the Triton brand? Ive been looking at them @Woodcraft but havent ever used the #woodchat

@dividedlight: @DyamiPlotke Although the 890 is tall it seems to balance very well, stable. #woodchat

@sduffy68: @dividedlight one of my future projects will be to rebuild our front door. Its arched top and use to have a round window. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @dividedlight I totally look forward to that! #woodchat I blog at http://t.co/vXPfzSrO. My best glass project is at http://t.co/JSK0LATD

@sleepydogwood: @ebeckham29 @Woodcraft I looked at them but when I went back to get one they were out #woodchat

@dividedlight: @DavidJUlschmid No. Wooden muntins and stained glass though. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @JinkerPlex Much as I love the PC 890, the PC 690 gets the most work in my shop. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: @thewoodninja SWMBO won’t let me refinance for Festool… Like my house is worth anything these days… 🙁 #woodchat

@imaginer99: Does anyone use or recommend scrapers? #Woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: #woodchat how about favorite 3hp routers for table mounts?

@uppercutwood: What are the five essential power hand tools? router, circular saw, drill, jigsaw, what else? #woodchat

@ebeckham29: @csp2430 Great they are actually reasonably priced and they normally have them on sale#woodchat

@JimAAshley: the one router I have is Ridgid, which was an upgrade to a Craftsman (1/4” only collet)#woodchat

@Tumblewood: Woodchat is up in G+…check it out when you get a chance. Let us know what you want from #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @imaginer99 yes, scrapers are unbelievable #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: a thousand times YES!!! Best tools ever, card scrapers and the Stanley #80. RT @imaginer99: Does anyone use or recommend scrapers? #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @ebeckham29 I got an email from @Woodcraft that the Triton 3 1/4hp is on sale for $199 #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I keep getting spammed for using G+ #woodchat

@asliceofwood: any recomendations for buying? RT @uppercutwood: @imaginer99 yes, scrapers are unbelievable #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @JimAAshley How was the Ridgid, it looks good from a feature perspective #woodchat

@ebeckham29: @uppercutwood I think you are right, about essential hand tools although I would add a few sanders #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Dremel

@RT @sduffy68: @uppercutwood RotoZip LOL #woodchat

@JinkerPlex: @uppercutwood Sander maybe? #woodchat

@imaginer99: @MansFineFurn @uppercutwood thanks! I’m looking to get a few. #Woodchat

@Tumblewood: @asliceofwood I just get them a few at a time from Woodcraft or wherever..doesn’t matter much..they all need a good amount of work #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ebeckham29 Winner winner chicken dinner, a ROS and maybe a detail sander #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: @ebeckham29 Its a shame to I always have like PCs tools my belt sander has lasted 15 years and is going strong. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @sduffy68 Restoration and new? #woodchat

@ebeckham29: @HighRockWW I got that one, I was in there today and saw them and held one, felt pretty good. Just wish I could had trial ran it. #woodchat

@csp2430: The Triton routers are terrific in tables – you don’t need a router lift because they wind up so high #woodchat

@jmk89: @uppercutwood ROS #woodchat

@asliceofwood: my dremel 3000 has worked pretty good so far. RT @uppercutwood: Dremel RT @sduffy68: @uppercutwood RotoZip LOL #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood what do you mean “spammed”? Haven’t had any issues…yet. #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @MansFineFurn @imaginer99 #woodchat Love me my Sandvik scrapers. Thick for course removal, thin just before finish. Down with sandpaper!

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn I’ve got three in my Mentions right now. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @Tumblewood do they wear out quick? are there different sizes? #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @uppercutwood Ilike it, definitely an upgrade for me. Soft start, variable speed, does both 1/2” and 1/4” bits. Also has LED. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Could any of you get by with out a table saw? #woodchat

@ebeckham29: @sleepydogwood We had a few PC sanders come through our shelter’s thrift store today, flew out the door before I could get there #woodchat

@HighRockWW: @ebeckham29 I may pick one up this weekend… #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @uppercutwood I got it on deal from HD, was display unit. #woodchat

@imaginer99: @DJOfurnituremkr Are you serious? No, not me #Woodchat

@uppercutwood: maybe if you have a good bandsaw RT @DJOfurnituremkr: Could any of you get by with out a table saw? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DJOfurnituremkr i could..but, I have room and don’t see the need to do without #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @DJOfurnituremkr NO, you can pry my table saw from my cold dead hands! #woodchat

@UserOfWood: @DJOfurnituremkr it would be hard for me, but a band saw could replace a TS for most of what i do #woodchat

@dividedlight: @DJOfurnituremkr No way. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @UserOfWood Word…I want a 20” BS #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: DITTO: RT @DavidJUlschmid: @MansFineFurn @imaginer99 #woodchat Love me my Sandvik scrapers. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @asliceofwood Don’t buy until you have the $$$ to get a good file & burnishing rod. They need to be sharp to work right. #woodchat

@mitwoodworks: @DJOfurnituremkr Maybe if I had a quality bandsaw #woodchat

@kweinert: @DJOfurnituremkr Right now I am, but that’s because I’m very limited in space, been turning lately. Bandsaw would work for me. #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: @uppercutwood I have the palm size Ridgit and its a good strong router I like that it came with a edge guide and two bases #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: Yes but I really love my TS and probably wouldn’t consider it. RT @DJOfurnituremkr: Could any of you get by with out a table saw? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @thewoodninja Depends on what you use them for. @ToddinMontana has a great vid on using them for more agressive work #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @DJOfurnituremkr I don’t think I could make it without a table saw. Do have respect for my 18” band saw. Do you use a table saw? #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @JimAAshley @uppercutwood I have the Rigid as well. Very well made, the highest quality power tool I have (not sayin’ much) #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Ten minutes left what questions can we help people with? #woodchat

@asliceofwood: hmmm…guess I got to wait a little while RT @thewoodninja: @asliceofwood Dont buy until you have the $$$ to get a good file & bur #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @DJOfurnituremkr Not me. It’s the heart of my shop. #woodchat

@csp2430: Anyone like Yankee screwdrivers like I do? #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood 12 volt drill, router, jig saw, Random Orbit sander & another sander (or router) #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: I would take an Aggazzani 24” band saw over a Saw Stop any day. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Yes, I think so, Bandsaw and handtools can do most of it . RT @DJOfurnituremkr: Could any of you get by with out a table saw? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @thewoodninja be sure to use the loose tension…they do a good job of resawing #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @thewoodninja @WoodworkGuy #woodchat I second the Wood Slicer recommendation. Smooth cuts and they somehow demand less power from the motor

@sduffy68: QUESTION – What to look out for on used Dust Collection? #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: Wood Slicer: I’ve had mixed results: First one dulled REALLY fast, current one, going strong #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @DavidJUlschmid My thoughts exactly #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Thanks everyone for showing up tonight, we’ll post the transcript on a few sites tomorrow. #woodchat

@Seanw78: @DavidJUlschmid @sleepydogwood think I got them from rockler on sale a few years ago. Not sure where now. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @sduffy68 look for a motor that runs and a unit you can replace the filter on. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: RT @Tumblewood: @sduffy68 open the housing and look at the windings #windings #woodchat

@kweinert: I have a benchtop DP from HF – have yet to get to drill without wobbling. #woodchat

@ebeckham29: @JinkerPlex agreed I just got 7 18v Rigid drills 15 batteries and 5 chargers for $40 and only 3 of the bats. are bad #woodchat

@sduffy68: Kinda what I figured RT @JinkerPlex: @sduffy68 I got a Grizzly cabinet saw on Craigslist, but really you just have to shop the… #woodchat

@DavidJUlschmid: @thewoodninja @Tumblewood #woodchat I had a timberwolf. Wood slicer is superior IMHO

@JimAAshley: @asliceofwood It sucks (ha, ha)… seriously, it works well, don’t have much to compare it to #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: @DavidJUlschmid @Seanw78 I got mine @rockler and they were kits so they were $99 for 4 clamps #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Man that went by fast #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @uppercutwood damn that was quick! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sduffy68 check the motor, impeller, and bags. those are the keys #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @uppercutwood I’ll put it on mine too if you want to send it to me #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: Take care everyone, see you next week. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: IHave the new jorgenson parallel clamps I like em better than my bessys #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @uppercutwood We’ll soon be setting up a transcript page on http://t.co/HkZmqHXZ #woodchat

@woodbard: Guess I am late…#woodchat #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DavidJUlschmid I produce almost smooth cuts with my Drift Master and Timberwolf #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @DJOfurnituremkr later dale #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @DJOfurnituremkr good night, Dale. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: If anyone is still here: recommendations for benchtop mortisers? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @woodbard hey Al. #woodchat

@dividedlight: @sduffy68 I have a 10” jet cabinet saw and I like it. I see cabinet saws on CL locally. #woodchat

@DyamiPlotke: @woodbard hi Al. #woodchat

@asliceofwood: See everyone next week! #woodchat

@csp2430: Thanks all. #woodchat

@Morton: @MansFineFurn careful with the use. Exotics will dull it fast. So will non-straight cuts. #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @woodbard Hi Al. #woodchat

@WoodworkGuy: Great chat all! #woodchat

@LaMacchiaDesign: #woodchat later y’all! Until next time…

@thewoodninja: Thanks for all the great content guys. And thanks for teaching me what a wooby is! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MansFineFurn Do you do a lot of mortise / tenon? I like floating tenons..my bench top is a waste of space #woodchat

@woodbard: Hi, everyone – sorry I totally missed a good one! #woodchat #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: @woodbard. Evening Al! #woodchat

@dividedlight: See you next week. #woodchat

@sduffy68: @uppercutwood The one I am going to look at this weekend is the Grizzly 2hp model. It seems to get good reviews “new” anyway. #woodchat

@thewoodninja: @Tumblewood I agree. Floating tenons are way more forgiving.#woodchat

@uppercutwood: @woodbard welcome Al! quick question: your top 5 handtools… go! #woodchat

@JimAAshley: G’night all! Now I know what a wooby is too! #woodchat

@sduffy68: @DJOfurnituremkr Take care! See you next week! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @sduffy68 it’s all about the sustained static CFM #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @Tumblewood space I have, using the drill press setup now, but I hate switching it out every time I want to mortise/drill. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @thewoodninja not just forgiving…functional! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: I got here late see you all next week #woodchat

@sduffy68: @JimAAshley Take it easy. See you next week!!! #woodchat

@ebeckham29: must read transcript and learn what wooby is… things to do things to do #woodchat

@TheRealNeal: Got to go guys. So long and thanks for all the fish! #woodchat

@dividedlight: @uppercutwood I have a LN rabbetting block plane that is high on the list. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ebeckham29 wooby is oily rag to wipe tools down and prevent rust #woodchat

@kweinert: @MansFineFurn From my main page I just put woodchat in the search and he came up right off. #woodchat

@kennyboat: #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: @kweinert woodchat is not it, it’s blank, instead search woodchat woodchat, he’s there. #woodchat

@MansFineFurn: It opens, but it’s not an invitation (can’t be added to my calendar by accepting.) RT @kweinert: I just created a calendar file… #woodchat
