  • Mag Suggestion

    Ok being a Canadian and a carver I would love to see a issue or two done about the Canadian carvers. I knew there has been coverage of different shows in Canada but how about more info on Canadian carvers and suppliers.

    Currently if I want good quality tools I have to mail order or drive 3 hours to the store . Ordering out of the USA is fine but man the exchange rate is killing me.

    Jeff - can't do much about the exchange rate, but on you tools if you haven't tried them yet kmstools.com if the site for KMS Tools & Equipment. They are located in Canada someplace and have very good prices on Pfiel tools.

    Remember when I was a kid living in N. Minn. on the border - the exachange rate was so close to even we took each others money at face value. Used to go across and buy strawberry jam can't remember the name of it but it was better than anything in the U.S. at least that we could get.

        I have been cutting a lot of 1 1/2 hardwood for mini birdhouses and my go to blade in the Flying Dutchman UR-5 as I like the finish it gives.
        For some real hard woods like cherry and hard maple I have had better luck with the FD polar bladed #5.

        I had some cherry that was burning...

        My preference would be Flying Dutchman #5, as it could handle it if you needed some tighter turns---and going to a #7 or #9 if doing a lot of straighter cuts. Plywood does dull blades a bit faster though, no matter the blade brand choice. The best blade is kinda a broad question---every brand works...

        I totally agree with Dan (dgman). I prefer Flying Dutchmans for most things, but I know others who absolutely swear by other top brands, and almost everyone go thumbs down on generics after trying the name brands---and the price difference is next to nothing if you know where to buy. Some suppliers...

        Wow, that is a loaded question! You will get a lot of opinions, but the best answer is the ones that work for you. My suggestion is to order or buy several types and sizes and brands, and use what works for you. I would suggest you not buy the generic blades you find in local hardware stores. The top...
