Craftsman Made in the USA Screwdrivers in 2018?! - 7 replies

Maybe they still do this, but I don’t recall seeing anything “Made in the USA” on any Craftsman tools in a long time. I thought all of them moved overseas. I just bought these screwdriver set from Ace Hardware, brand new, and all of them says Made In the USA. They look and feel like the ones my father use to have in his mech...

What's a good clock with temperature & humidity indicators? - 9 replies

Good Evening fellow LJ’s, I’m on a hunt for a decent Clock with temperature and humidity indicators. There are so many out there and the one I like the most, in terms of aesthetics, is the Woodcraft one. It seems like it would have the most contrast to see, but I’m open to other suggestions to better ones, if they are o...

Drilling Square Holes - Still amazing to watch - 3 replies

I remember seeing this a few years back, but it’s always fun to see this in action every now and then. Who needs files and chisels when you have a drill bit that can do it all. Even a hexagonal shape apparently.

Anyways, it is shop related as it’s my garage shop and need help figuring out where to start. As you can see in the picture, there is water coming through and I have no idea what it might be. T...

Attic Insulation: DIY or Pay? - 19 replies

Hello All, I’ve tried looking for an answer on this in many places. It seems like it would be an easy answer, but I have some concerns. Would you do your own Attic Insulation using a blower rental or pay to have someone else do it? I’m all for doing it on my own, but my 1st concern is that it would take a lot of work to cre...

Anyone tried Z-Wave Receptacle for remote Dust Collection? - 9 replies

Good Evening fellow LJ’s, I was curious if anyone has tried using the Z-Wave Wireless receptacle for their Dust Collection needs? I see all these remote controlled boxes from various companies all having some sort of problems with the exception of the +$100 range. I originally bought the PSI Long Ranger, but the company won’t...

Suction Loss at and through Blast Gates? - 19 replies

Good Evening LJ’s, I was finalizing my dust collection and noticed one part of my table saw collection to not have as much suction as i thought it should, so I started to check for suction loss and air gaps. I know some (if not all) of the 90 / 45 degree elbows have some loss, so I’ll be sealing those up, BUT when I open up my ...

Nano Filter Hole - Too much air passing through? - 7 replies

Good Afternoon Fellow LJ’s, I am nearly complete in installing my dust collection duct work, hoses, pipes, connectors, and filter. The question I have is that when I turn the dust collector on, I can feel a LOT of air coming through the top. It seems all filters are like this and makes me wonder just how much is actually going thr...

Dust Collector Duct Installation Opinions requested (I have photos!) - 23 replies

Good Evening Everyone, I would like to request some opinions about my pending dust collection duct install setup. I think this will work fine, but it doesn’t hurt to get second opinions.

Chisel Starter Set - Dewalt or hone old ones? - 18 replies

Hey Fellow LJ’s, I’m in the market for a very basic starter Chisel set. I would prefer to buy locally, which means the big box stores for me. I saw some DeWalt 4-PC chisel set at HD for $30. The steel is made in Sheffield, England and was wondering if this would suffice as I hone in, pun intended, my skills. I currently ha...

Miter Saws vs Crosscut Sled 2015 - 13 replies

Hello fellow LJ’s, I’ve been debating for the past 2 weeks about upgrading my miter saw to a SCMS (sliding compound miter saw) and was JUST about to pull the trigger when I realized that a crosscut sled probably performs better for wider stock than the SCMS. I’ve seen people just drool over the Festool Kapex, yet a good cros...

Cheap, but good, plywood from Home Depot (Pine Ply) - 44 replies

I don’t know if anyone has heard of this, but some Home Depots are carrying something called a Pine Plywood. I’ve never heard of it, but for the price of $35 for a 4×8, 3/4” sheet, 11 ply, void-free as far as I can see, super smooth, it was well worth the purchase. It’s actually what I used to make my Drill Press C...

Preventing cupping without glue - 4 replies

Hello LJ community, I am in the process of making some keepsake boxes like those of the Woodwhisperer. The keepsake box uses one dovetail joint to allow the top to slide back and forth and then held with a key. Well, I finished the base, so that’s not the problem; it’s the top. I cut the dovetail slot on a prototype and the li...

Did the LJ logo just change? - 3 replies

Is it me or did the LJ logo just change today? I don’t remember it looking like that before all this talk about the acquisition. I could be losing my mind if it’s the same. Just curious.

Dovetail saws for lefties? - 11 replies

I was looking at some Dovetail saws from Leevalley and noticed that the saws were designed for right-handed people (well, the decent quality ones I’ve seen so far). Does anyone have a suggestion on a Dovetail saw that’s either ambidextrous or designed for lefties for under $100? I’d like to start learning to use one. I’...
