When you take woodworking to the next level, you need all-around tools that will make your woodworking projects better. In a year or so, I hope to put together a set of “All-Around Tools” that covers the essentials—you’ll find everything we recommend on a couple of other pages of this site.

The tools are designed for the average jointer, while most of our products are designed for the pros. You’ll often hear them referred to as “tweezers,” and we hope that makes all the difference.
