    Perhaps you meant 'use them professionally'? Sue them has a slightly different meaning to Americans... ;-)

    It's all fine and good to repair old tools, but sometimes it's best just to replace. Or use a pro like Ed Dyjak to fix. A happy customer here of Ed's who'd rather be scraping and getting the job done...

    Paolo, Gary Martin has a pattern for a 52" long with dovetail straight edge. Saw pics of a machined casting- nice, but 125 lbs! For comparison the HKA 48" I scraped is 61 lbs. Use it regularly, but...

    About the life span of a brazed carbide scraper? I use an Anderson tubular scraper for work I can't get my power scraper into, or for when I'm tired of holding a mini jack hammer that is a Biax. The...

    Dura- bar has gone way up since I last ordered some three years ago. By weight your quote, Richard, is 50% higher than the iron I bought. Maybe some of that is a cut charge. Maybe some is the current...

    Oh dear.

    Sean had quite the collection of Deckel tooling in addition to the square head FP3. As well as some other Euro machines. Guessing most is lost... Sad.

    I find it interesting that Cash chooses to do the re-building in house. Wonder if this is due to size/ rarity of many of his bigger machines and cost of shipping, or control of quality?

    I find weight limits my ability to feel proper hinging on a dovetail and enjoy using lighter tools. I really didn't need a Foster 18" prism given I have other straight edges, but am finding his prism...

    Minor correction to Richard's note: I looked into buying a Busch casting a year ago- the patterns are now owned by a Chicago area guy who only casts on special order with very long lead times. But at...

    Starting a tariff war is like being a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.

    Not to interfere with you gentlemen's chatting, but I've never understood reluctance to modify a tool. It's not the Mona Lisa. Would take ten minutes to polish down the spindle. Done. Next job.

    +1 for scraping it (mostly) flat. Actually you don't want the entire base flat, just the throat, front and back end. Less friction, easier to use.

    Yup, the rubber grips the shaft. Guessing a stiff bearing or old oil inside as it will spin by hand but not with the rubber pressing a shaft or chuck jaws. Will (eventually) take it apart.

    Thanks, jancollc. That vise didn't show up on my ebay search. Probably as I live in Canada and the seller refuses to sell to Canadians... Interesting vise, and I've never seen that type before.
