    What a great character Capt. Eddie is!

    Sure thing Stu i love characters like this. Unique and individual and entertaining.

    They could do with him on some of the more boring woodworking shows on TV.
    cheers

    Good "ol Capn Eddie

    He has a lot of other free tips and mdse for sale.....very reasonable.

    He is the kind of guy that just wants to give back.
    Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    I have Capn Eddie's Blackhawk sharpening system (which comes with the $2 sharpening jig). My gouges are sharp and it is really easy to touch up my tools. I would recommend it to anyone. It is about half to two-thirds the price of the comparable Wolverine jig. Not quite as polished, but it does the job.

    His videos got me back into woodturning, so I like to support him when I can.

    $2 is a darn fine price with todays situation. I like the guys style friendly and open and a lateral thinker to boot.

    A pity it doesn't work for carving gouges as there are so many different profiles.
    Best regards,
