I applaud your passion for woodworking and handtools, IMHO you not only offer innovative, superior products, but also bring a lot of helpful energy and information to the woodworking community. Thank you!
The chartreuse background is very pleasing.
Joel; I have 2 of your Grammercy holdfasts and use them frequently.
I also have 2 made by the the Russian up on the Yukon River in Alaska (the ones Chris Schwarz had in his workbench book)
which i also use frequently because they are so pretty and unique and have a little more "spring"---also cost 3x vise Grammercy.
Throw in a couple of Veritas adjustables and a mallet and anything that doesn't want to smack-down held in place becomes dry- mouthed
Like Mike i also applaud the contribution you and TFWW make to the WW community.
The way you change direction when you saw is to continue doing long strokes and turn the saw as you saw. Short stokes just twist the blade and don't let you saw through the turn.
NEXT: A question: Can someone comment on the Japanese style dove tail saw offered by Tools for Wood Working? I believe the man's name was "Oldon"...
Finally, does anyone have a recommendation based on experience for a good quality panel saw and also a coping saw?
What I would like to see is someone in the USA (like you guys) carry more of the Narex product line. They seem to make quite a large variety of tools besides the chisels that have such a good following. Narex has good quality at a good price. Not everyone wants super premium tools or prices. I want to be able so supply my woodworking students at school with good tools without killing my budget and point them in a good direction for tools of their own. Wood workers need an intermediate option, better than cheap big box junk but less than Lie Nielsen. These tools need to be new so they are more widely available than hunting for vintage tool deals.
