Trevor,

Very nice tools. I have been working on some squares myself and just ordered a countersink tool HEAVY DUTY BALL BEARING C/S-AVERY TOOLS , L.P. that is micro adjustable and uses interchangeable piloted countersinks. It looks to be the ticket for this job.

That's a good tip, I look into those, though I might hop on the lathe and turn a dedicated piloted CS from drill rod. I'm also looking at these bad boys....http://upload.ecvv.com/upload/Produc...8261607448.jpg

A Zero Flute CS, they cut chatter down a lot.

I have the Centrotec version of that type of countersink and it is pretty awesome in wood. Very fast and very smooth cutting even with a minimal pilot hole and no chatter. Makes the old school multi ridged countersinks seem barbaric.

However well it cuts, it sometimes wanders off the pilot hole a little.

Perfect! No sign of the screws.

I get the 1:8, but what's the TWD? The wight-angled dovetail?

Poto, it stande for Trevor Walsh Designs, that's been the name I've been operating under for a few commissions and my blog for the past year. I've got business cards for it and use it mainly to identify myself. I also use a makers stamp with "T.Walsh Phila." on larger things and my personal tools.

Thanks Poto, I'm trying, I dream of one day having a woodworking school/tool factory in a 19th century building in Philadelphia, employing a group of people and helping to revive craft in America...I have no idea how exactly to go about this; I make some tools, or replacement parts (short rods and cutter for the Record 043) for people that message me on the OldTools list or forums. I'm hoping that these markers are the beginning of that journey.

I might as well get some surprise going, I'm working on designing a line of fine, tang pairing chisels in the style of Charles Buck. I've been reading about the old Buck Bros. plant, they had something like 9 employees when the three brothers first started the company, it's very inspiring. I want to bring that back.

You go girl!

Oh - that was some other forum.

Great idea, Trevor, and good luck on your venture. I think it's a golden age of fine hand tools, and fine woodworking. We're fortunate to have access to the resources that we do, and to have a group such as those on talkFestool to share our work with. Good luck, and let us know if we can help!
