    Do a search for 'woodcarving supplies' and you will get more than you need. I believe that Harbor Freight is <harborfreighttools.com>. I am sure you could find them in a search for 'Harbor Freight'.

    Good Luck,

      :P While I buy some things at Harbor Freight, carving tools isn't one of them. Most of HF tools come from China and they do NOT consider quality a high priority. Check out the suggestion posted above. There are a lot of very nice folks out there who can supply you with quality tools at what ever price you can afford. As always, buy the best and you will never be disappointed.

        I've had good luck with www.littlemountaincarving.com. They have an online catalog and the service has been good.

            You could check out www.woodcraft.com, that's where I've gotten my most recent tools.

              I buy all of my pfeil tools at Woodcraft. Of course, I don't have much choice as they are the only dealer in the US. I would also suggest contacting Rick at www.littleshavers.com. for tools. For the benefit of those new to carving, here are some brand names that you can trust to be fine tools (the list is not exhaustive and I expect other members here will add their favorites to the list): pfeil, Two Cherries, Henry Taylor, FlexCut, Cape Forge, Diobsud Forge, Stubai, Dastra, Robert Sorby. Watch out for the sets advertised on e-bay, most of them are Chinese junk. They do have one Liquidator there advertising Marples 6-piece sets for about $20 which seems like a good price for a decent beginners set of tools.

                There's a guy in Canada that sells Pfeil. He sells on ebay, but has an on-line store as well. His $US prices are lower than Woodcrafts, and his freight is really cheap. He promotes a set for $180, under the category of tools.

                  Now you tell me! Do you have to pay duty on tools imported from Canada?

                        The Canadian seller of Pfiel tools is KMS Tools. Try:
                        http://www.kmstools.com

                        He ships small orders for about $10.00 and claims orders for less than $400 are usually not inspected or charged for duties. His prices are quoted in $Canadian and $US and seem pretty cheap.

                            8) Hey mdallensr, I checked out kmstools. Looks like their prices are $10 - $15 cheaper than what I paid at Woodcraft. Have you ordered anything through them? I might have to give 'em a try!

                            Hey grumpy, I checked out www.hummel.com. No carving tools, some sort of Internet service/ computer upgrade site. Are you sure that is the right address? :'(

                              www.hummel com is the right address, there isn't any tools on the sight but e-mail them and they will send you a catalog for free. Takes about 4-5 days to get it.

                                I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                                John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
