If you are really into woodworking you might be willing to spend 3 days salary on a really good block plane, but most of us probably won't. We will spend enough to get an OK plane and complain about the cut quality later. LeeValley has a simple way to improve your plane, and that is to use one of their replacement plane blades.

Utility blades never seem to last long enough, and now finally somebody is doing something about it. Stanley has launched a new utility blade that uses carbide to help strengthen the edge of the blade. They use some cool new laser technology that deposits tungsten carbide powder onto the edge of every blade, then use diamond wheels to grind on a razor sharp finished angle. This new procedure is said provide the blades with an edge that outlasts the competition by more the five times, but still remains flexible. "The introduction of the new...

When Black & Decker merged with Stanley we knew there would be some changes, but we had no idea Stanley, which is known for their hand tools, would be all but replaced by first Bostitch, and now DeWalt. But in fact the news is true; the DeWalt name will soon be found on a number of hand tools. DeWalt and hand tools just seems odd to me, but I am sure B&D has a plan. I guess it would help DeWalt if their yellow tools out numbered the other tools in one's tool bag; after all,...

Stanley emailed out a survey today with questions regarding a possible new modular shelving system. From what I gathered from the survey, people can simply buy one of their 4-shelf (plastic) or 5-shelf (metal reinforced plastic) units from the system and use it alone, or combine it with the modular add-ons. The add-ons include Drawers, Doors and side panels that form a cabinet, and Storage bins. The system does not require tools to assemble, which makes the modular design even better. I am happy to see a Made In USA logo on the packaging, but these haven't hit stores...

Popular Woodworking broke some pretty interesting news on Friday, that I am sure has a lot of people wondering what is going on. It turns out that Stanley Black & Decker will be selling the Delta brand to a Taiwanese company called TOTY and it will be renamed Delta Power Equipment. The New company will be run by someone familiar to the industry, Bryan Whiffen, who was Sr. VP for product development at TTI. TTI as we know, is the owner of Milwaukee Power tool and Ryobi. We shouldn't see much of a change in production, because...

One of the handiest tools we use is the nail set. I mean how ugly would our trim look with nails sticking out, or even worst, trim with hammer dents? So now that we have established how great they are, how can they be made better? Bostitch came up with a simple solution that improves upon the classic design, and does so without breaking the bank. Their new 58-500 nail set doesn't appear to be any different at first glance. It is only when you take a closer look that you notice it is...
