    What is your indispensable hand tool?

    Toss up between sharpening stones and my brain. Sorry Mike, you have both in good supply. Can't help you justify a new purchase. Can't do much without a sharp edge. When I don't have the "right" tool to do the job I can figure out the best way to proceed with the tools at hand. It may not be...

    What chisels/gouges should i acquire?

    Preserving sharp edges

    Looks like he gets it off the blades he has sharpened professionally and he reuses it. I'd be interested if someone knows what it is too.

    Sawstop Contractor w/52” T-Glide Pros/Cons
