Re: Found the Best Bits (To Date) For Shading.

OK, just bought stoney's recommended bits @ $3.76 per set delivered BUT, you are best off buying & paying for these as single sets of 1x 10 bits per package as they pile on an additional $1.36 per additional set otherwise.

I purchased a "workstation" aluminium extending legs (adjustable) that has a board top cover (removable) & a stand on mesh for DIY et al, ...was £20 in the Hogmanay sales, ...capable (allegedly) of taking 300kg of ...

Re: 2017 carving
