  • The Hone That Shone

    IMG_7412Sharp shiny things make me happy (and not in a crazy psychotic way).  I love sharp things because they make woodworking easier and I like easy.  If you sharpen your chisels and plane blades with a guide, then I think you'll love the Richard Kell Honing guides.

  • Saw Blade University Part 3

    SDB-800

    Part 3 of our Saw Blade University is the one most of you have been waiting for. Make sure to see the super-handy blade selection chart at the bottom, enjoy!

    Saw blade selection is very much proprietary to your saw, what you cut, and your cutting objectives. The basic signs of top quality are characteristics like premium materials, precision construction and advanced design. Good fit and finish, large polished carbide tips, C.N.C. laser cut heavy steel plate, and coatings are not a guarantee of high quality but they are a strong indicator that a premium blade was the intent of the manufacturer. Some saw blades are better suited for certain applications and work best on specific types of saws. Blades for the table saw tend to have a positive hook angle while blades for a sliding compound miter saw (SCMS) and radial arm saw (RAS) tend to have a very low to negative hook angle. There are different blade designs for wood, plywood, melamine, laminates, MDF, plastics, and non-ferrous metals. Look for a blade that’s recommended for the type of saw you own and the applications that you intend to use it for. Choosing appropriate saw blades and cutters is among the most important choices you will make for the performance and safety of any tool. Infinity saw blades are designed to offer superb cuts, reliable performance and extended cutting life. We achieve this by manufacturing saw blades that only use the highest quality materials, manufacturing techniques and employ advanced design. Continue reading
