Mike Turner, left, and Saul Harris, right, talk about their favorite tools but graciously spared us by not singing "My Favorite Things". Mike strongly and emphatically recommended that you toss those push sticks away and use a push board; Mike holds one is his hand.  Speed squares are very handy.  Mike likes a Lancelot which he calls a "chain saw on steroids" which is essentially a chain type blade on an angle grinder - be sure and keep the guard on.  Power planes are handy for dressing down a door but cut lightly.  Mike liked the Bosch jigsaw because the blade cuts straight and is not held in place by a set screw.  A Bessey corner clamp is great for squaring corners.  Saul shows club members a magnetically attached device to hold wood firmly against the table saw face.

  Cliff Ober shows off his tool handles that were made using compression nut fittings, an idea he read about in WK Fine Tools; an article on compression nut handles. The marking tool is of cocobola and kingwood then buffed and waxed.
