Product web page: www.leestyron.com I have wanted to order a Shark Guard from Lee for quite some time. One night this winter I went for it. At the time he said (on the webpage) the wait was about 3-4 weeks. I didn’t get a confirmation email (maybe it got filtered) and somewhere around two months later I got the shipping notice for the guard. I didn’t try to contact Lee myself so I’m not really complaining. The whole thing came in about two days from the shipping n...

Delta 46-460 12-1/2" Variable-Speed Lathe and Optional Stand

Delta 46-460 12-1/2" Variable-Speed Lathe and Optional Stand

I purchased this lathe two weeks ago when it was on sale at Woodcraft. I brought it home, opened it up, and set it up. It took about an hour to completely set it up.

Picture #2 shows how you pull a lever, change the belt, re-tighten the lever, and off you go. It is a...

Benjamin's best carbide pen turning chisels

I bought these hoping they would make turning acrylic blanks easier since they should be sharper than I can make my old Crafstman turning chisels. YES THEY ARE! Turning acrylic blanks is a breeze with these carbide chisels. They worked so well that I use them on wood blanks too. I’ve turned about 15 pens with a mix of acrylic and wood blanks including a dyed burl and a couple of laminated blanks and these chisels are great. I wish I had bought them sooner.

The task was to lower a bar stool 2 1/4”.And not have the usual problem with not level legs when we got done. We also had a Fein Multimaster and the new Porter Cable SoniCrafter To ensure the same length was cut off each leg we cut a piece of PVC to 2 1/4”.The Fein and the PC each had a couple of blades that could be used but we took the round serrated blades as they were the same thickness.We just ran the blades around the leg resting them on the PVC. That gave us a uniform...

(photo from: www.ridgid.com) When we first were looking for tools for our shop Rick wanted a drum sander. We asked at a store and were shown this Ridgid model which is multi-purposed. Rick was sold and we’ve never regretted the purchase. Features: belt sander (4”) spindle sander (5 sizes) tilting table Conversion Switching between the belt sander and spindle sander is really easy. It is also simple to change the sleeves for the spindle sander. Everything...
