We currently have a restock of improved side bead planes in the store. These are available in bead sizes of 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4".

Paul Peters, of Acer Ferrous Toolworks, is developing additional components for the wood screw now available. The first item is the garter, which is used to attach the wood screw to the chop (movable jaw) of the vice. This allows the chop to move in conjunction with the hub of the screw when opening the vice. There is no need to pull the chop open by hand.
