A book from the master of planes and other things. I am looking forward to either buying or winning this book to add to my collection. I have met him and learned so much, and need reminding on how to sharpen: properly.
I am 77 now and still have all my fingers with only a slight wound 15 yrs ago, on my left hand, due to negligence when tired. I have been woodworking since 7th grade. Bought my only table saw in the early 1960's. A Craftsman 10" but upgraded many times. I am not going to purchase another saw as long as this one continues to serve me. Not to cut a hot dog to cost me $90. I live in Calif. and we do have a bunch of jerks costing us lots of $$$ in order to feed their coffers. Just saying...
Several years ago while making a cradle, I had a 15 deg cut to make. My saw is a left tilting blade. After the cut, I reached over to take of the piece, and the still turning blade nipped the tip of my little finger. About a 1/2" from the top, and lots of bleeding. Fortunately, a good micro surgeon and splinting for a month, and just an indentation is all that's visible. Lesson that I learned: wait until blade stops before retrieving cut piece.
Goodbye old friend. I have watched all shows since it's beginning. I will miss you. I hope you latch on to something else, as well as TOH, for us Woodworkers. I have learned more from you than most others. So what's your plan for the future? Lectures, teaching, TOH, Ask TOH, or just kicking back for awhile? I have recently retired from my "day job", and really enjoy my shop. So what's up?
