I bought these from Highland Woodworking

Hirsch #7 Straight Gouge (I plan on using to attempt to carve some spoons using the Limewood blanks that I also bought from Lee Valley) and some Renaissance Wax.

Whoa! That router plane did I (not earned..) get from my gf - I love it. Getting the medium one to add soon. What a pleasure, fun and relaxing thing to use, besides being immensely effective doing exact work..

Check out this bag for those Japanese saws too:

Makita guide rail connectors. It appears to be a new version. Part no: 198885-7
Spotted these on my visit to the equivalent Home Depot here..

Two steel plates permanently connected with rivets. They seems to work very well, some adjustment is allowed. Nice that they stay in one piece, apart from that hex key.. one day.. [big grin] These won’t dent or mar your rails at least.
These could be used in conjunction with the new self adjusting Festool connectors or TSO’s self adjusting. Using these on the top t-track and the self adjusting ones on the main saw track.

A revolving shelving unit from Uline, being the most price-competitive source in Canada, based on my research.

Another online order arrived: a crock pot for warming up my Old Brown Glue, which I use for certain projects. I saw that use by American Antique Furniture Restorer Tom Johnson. His hide glue pot broke down, and he has been using OBG in the interim.

I went full throttle on new PB Swiss and Knipex tools - nothing delivered yet, so nothing to post...but great discounts at Tool Lady and KC Tools for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Cannot wait to get the goodies in the mail!

Just arrived from the UK: Stripping knives (UK made), and palette knife (Italian product) which I use for applying glue/veneer repairs. Total order - $14 Cdn including (two-week) shipping.

It would have cost me about $20 Cdn just for the palette knife from Amazon (shipped from the States).

Jackson's Art Supplies offers many other British/EU affordable, finishing related supplies.

Curiosity got me, I found a new brand of measuring tools nearby.

Had to give it a go, price vice a bargain if they hold up.
1 Combo square from Empire
1 Carpenter square also from Empire.
Both are square after initial checks. However the combo square has a cast locking pin.. aka no steel one like Starrett. I’m curious if it holds up  [huh]. Other than that both squares gives a very good impression.

Picked up a 2022 Nissan Frontier to tow my trailer full of Festool. I can't get a trailer hitch installed for a couple of weeks, so the trailer is on holiday until then.

I picked up some waste-side cut jigs, vacuum hose/cable clips, and dust covers for the TS55 and 75 from Strawbyte Workshop before Christmas.



Today my order from Woodcraft arrived.  I ordered some epoxy, my first ever cabinet/card scraper set, a burnisher, 151 spokeshave, some chisel guards, and a Fisch brad point bit set because it was on sale ($43 off until 1/31/2022).

What a coincidence. I also bought a set of lipped brad point drill bits - https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop/tools/power-tool-accessories/drill-bits/42247-hss-lipped-imperial-brad-point-drills

I've used the metric lipped bits, and was impressed with the results.

The Fisch brad points are really nice! They cut clean and fast.

turns out that woodworking is 1% making things you'll use, 4% making bespoke high end firewood, 15% cleaning, and 80% looking for the blinking thing you just put down
