    Hey Michael,

    I highly recommend Dave's Shaves http://www.ncworkshops.com/

    I have one of his shaves and it is very easy to use and is itself a work of art.

    The files look nice, but I want that 5 min. and 30 seconds of my life back.

    Yeah, I always go looking for the spokeshave when I'm in a mood to ruin a piece of wood. Haven't seen it around for a long time. Maybe the guys gave it away - I hope so.

    Sorry Ken, Charles is an acquired taste. His approach to Woodworking is a much more relaxed than the normal pitchman. I love a sign in his store. It says: Antiques made daily.

    O.K.....maybe I need to lighten up a bit. When you contrast him to other "pitchmen" I guess he isn't all that bad. He definately has a passion for his work.

    I like the looks of those. Added to wish list. Thanks for the heads up, Allen.

    Here is a set like the ones I have. Mine are from a pattern maker supply company from 35 years ago but these are the same. Good price on them.
