    New to this forum

    I am new to this forum so I thought I would just introduce my self. My name is Tom, on another forum my name is tablesawtom. I am retired, but have been woodworking for about 40 years. I am not a Neanderthal, but I do believe woodwoking requires a mix of handtool experience as well as the ability to use power tools. I believe that the work bench is the most inportant tool in the shop. It is also my favorate thing to build, but I only need one at time, so it presents a problem. My other hobbie is old woodworking tools. I like them all but I really like restoring hand planes. I hope what I have to say will be somewhat of an interest to you here on this forum.

    Thanks ,

    Tom

    Tom has a great reputation over at woodnet for being able to fix problems with old planes. He has been able to machine flat and square the sides of planes for members there. He is a retired tool & die maker. Welcome Tom!
