  1. Hi guys seen a few posts about slate stones for final polishing. Dies anyone use them, are they any good and is there a decent one in the UK?

    Diamond plates

    So I bought 2 stones dmt fine 600 and e fine 1200 grit. I would really like a 3rd stone for polishing but I think I can wait until the right one comes along. Also I re ground all my chisels to 25 degrees and not 30. It's made a huge difference on chop cuts and paring!! I'm currently using some msg with leather and paste

    Diamond plates

    Yeah sound advice, I may skip the 250, I can use my belt sander for coarse if I need a total reshape I guess. I think the eef was 8000 grit but it had average reviews and was 100 quid!. i have some leather so gonna make my own strop I think

    Diamond plates

    I was planning for a coarse 250 grit, fine 600 grit and extra fine roughly 60quid each. I'm running out of sandpaper and the oil stone I have is already hollowed despite trying to use the full stone. I've shopped around on Amazon, ebay, axminster and other UK stockists and the cheapest I can find is ebay. I can't do a great deal about the cost, it was more about whether they were any good!! Sound advice as usual many thanks for your input!
  9. Hi so I'm looking at buying 3 sharpening plates, I'm considering dmt stones, they are around 65 each. Any of you guys use them? What would you recommend?

    my new Xmas tools

    Fitted the vice today and tried out all my new cool stuff! Practiced a couple of dovetails and they took only 30 mins each Got the sample box completed. Now I need some nice wood for the real thing!! Anyone got pointers for cheap hardwood in Kent, UK?

    vintage tools!

    I do have a poor man's shoulder plane, not quite finished yet though. I'll probably treat myself to a 93. Yeah my fave crisps :). My chisels were quite cheap stanley ones but the hold a nice sharp edge! I'll do a bit more research for vintage chisels and maybe get some in the new year

    handcut dovetails

    So I attempted a half lapped dovetail, didn't follow any set process and it was rubbish. Had a little watch of Paul sellers method and this was attempt 2, I must sat I'm pretty happy with this considering the wood was not fully tried and it was scrap wood. Really happy with the lapped pins

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
