    Aother great video. I really enjoyed it when you put your belt sander in the vice. Thanks for not having so many stand-alone machines.

    Why is the word “out” always used to modify such action words as “paint”, “cure”, and other processes in woodworking??

    Would Oak/Red oak be a good choice for the tongs?

    • Customer Service

      Thank you for contacting us. Red oak wouldn’t be a great choice. It would be too prone to breaking when the tongs are flexed.
