First Woodworking Tools – Michael Fortune & Vic Tosolin

On this episode of the ShopNotes Podcast, Phil talks with our guest, Vic Tesolin, about minimalist woodworking, shop setups, the metric system and more…

John was there too but was mostly frozen up due to all the the “star power” on this show… or maybe he had some technical glitches. To be determined.

  1. Remember, the reality for measurement is that it is the USA versus the rest of the world. Except in science and some industries. Also the Metric system avoids crazy things like "ounce" being a unit for both mass and volume.

  2. I WILL NOT use a table saw – in my opinion it is the MOST dangerous power tool. Agree on the bandsaw being essential, wish I had bought one sooner. Have a 1930's vintage radial arm drill press, a radial arm saw I bought in the 1970s, a fairly new midi lathe, and a couple of 1/4" shank routers. And I think I'm a woodworker. Also a former Canadian.

  3. Hey Guys: I heard a rumor that Woodsmith is updating the Woodsmith CNC Machine and Plans.
    I am preparing to build my own CNC based some what on the Woodsmith Model with lots of changes. (I have Woodsmith mags 242 and 243)
    I would be very interested in any forth coming info or episode of it!!

  4. I buy tools of quality or buy tools that are a luxury version of something for the simple because I want to enjoy using them. Or because they are pretty.

  5. Like Vic….out of sight out of mind regarding tool storage. I need things visible thus pegboard for my needs. I just spent time the other day clearing out those "bins" we all have that collect stuff we think we can use at some time but never do. Most of the stuff in those bins I could not remember what they came from originally much less what I thought I might ever use it for. I now have a nice bucket of metal for the recycle scrap vendor and room for more stuff πŸ˜‰

  6. I think the biggest impediment to being comfortable with both imperial and metric measurements is the need many people feel to over do precision: My design calls for a 6" wide board, so it has to be a 152.4 mm. Really, 150mm is probably close enough. You won't be condemned to hades (or northern Ontario) for using "close enough" for that kind of conversion.
