Episode 6: Who said Stumpy's not very sharp? (Part 1)

Stumpy turns his Work Sharp 3000 into a super-duper sharpening machine that works without sandpaper and accepts Tormek jigs. Then turns his sarcasm loose on the viewer emails. (Who knew handplanes and popcorn had so much in common...) This is part one of a 2 part sharpening series. Next week we make some fully adjustable, sliding grinder tool rests, make our own Tormek jig, and show you how to get a Tormek style wet sharpening system for about $50!

Episode #5: Clamp Rack & Stretchy Tape

This one is worth seeing how it ends! The shop needs a new clamp rack and Stumpy has a design that will hold 48 clamps in just 3X2' of wall space. Then we do a review of "stretchy tape" for the dust collection sytem, and the humor segment tells you how to get out of trouble with the wife when you buy a new tool. Enjoy...

Episode 4: Shop Heating, Box Frames

This week the cameras catch us installing gas heating in the workshop and we share some of the tips that help us make multiples of the same project fast.
