    Carbide tool handles

    I decided to make a set of carbide lathe tools. I turned the handles today. While they are only 16 inches long this is the longest I can turn on my little Rikon lathe. I'm very happy with the way they turned out.

    Carbide Jointer knives

    I rarely use softer woods with what I do. A lot of hard maple, padauk, purple heart... It seems as though my jointer blades dull quicker than they should... maybe cause of the hardwoods. Would I benefit from using Carbide tipped knives? Anyone have experience with these? I have a 6" jet...

    Duragrit TruSander carbide sanding block?

    Anyone tried one of these? I ran across a review of a similar product (sup-r-sander) in an old issue of FWW (~2000). I try to avoid sandpaper most of the time (favoring a scraper) but still fall back to sanding for some tasks. Curious to hear...

    Need to get a Solid Carbide Router Bit Shortened

    I just got a 1/4" down-spiral router bit that I intended to use for inlaying bandings. The bit is 2-1/2" long, and just a bit too long for use in my small palm router. I thought about just grinding it down, but it is solid carbide, so that wont work! Does anyone out there know of a way, or...
