^^ ShopNotes Project Supplies 'is offering some of the hardware and supplies needed to build
the projects in this issue. We've also put together a list of other mail-order sources that have similar hardware and, supplies.
Magnet ► —
We used a small, ^—r but very strong magnet in the Marking Knife (page 14) called a "rare-earth" magnet. To really appreciate the strength of this magnet, you almost need to see (and feel) it tug the cap out of your hand and over the blade.
These magnets are nickel-plated, and the edges are rounded slightly to prevent chipping. We used W'-dia. magnets, but they're also available in V4" and %"-dia. sizes, see margin.

Laminated Keblkl Blades
The Marking Knife shown on page 14 uses a high quality blade that's typically used in a Japanese marking gauge called a kebiki. Made of laminated white steel, these blades are hand forged and carefully tempered to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 64, so they hold a fine, sharp edge.
The blade we used has a single, pre-sharpened bevel. It's wide and 2V2" long, but the blades are also available in V4", %", and V2'1 widths. For a mailorder source of kebiki blades, refer to the margin at right.
Modular Wall Storages
The Modular Wall Storage System featured on page 16 has a number of individual storage units to help organize your tools and supplies. Each storage unit hangs from a grid that's attached securely to the wall.
The grid and storage units are made from materials found easily at most home centers. We used "two-by" material (Douglas fir) and V2" electrical conduit for the grid. And 3/4m plywood (birch), W hardboard, and thin strips of hardwood are all you need to build the storage units.
A Shop Cart
With its pull-out trays and pegboard panels, there's plenty of storage inside and out in this Roll-Around Shop Cart.
ShopNotes Project Supplies is offering a kit that has all the hardware needed to build the Shop Cart. ShopNotes No, 5 is also included to provide step-by-step plans.
