Craftsman 1/3 hp 3.5 amp 10" Band Saw (21400)

Craftsman 1/3 hp 3.5 amp 10" Band Saw (21400)

765 days ago by ShipWreck | 17 comments »

A friend of mine has the previous version of this machine with the 3’ depth instead of the 4 5/8” depth of this 21400 model. I have used his doing some curvy cuts on smaller projects and it performed very well. The wife had mentioned getting another bandsaw for the shop but I kept shrugging it off until I had the funds for a 17” later this year. When I saw this one go on sale at Sears I decided to take the plunge. This is the very same saw as the Rikon 10-305 but sells fo...

Evapo-Rust works

Evapo-Rust works

804 days ago by ShipWreck | 32 comments »

A fellow LJ (Dusty56) recently posted about about using Evapo-Rust for rust removal from his jointer tables. I decided to buy a gallon and try it. All I did was take a wire brush the parts to remove the loose scale and place parts into a plastic container. I poured in just enough ER to cover all the parts and then let everything sit for 6 hours. After removing the parts from the solution, I gave them a quick brushing using a brass brush. Keeping the container in a warm place helps with the ch...

Simple & Well Made

Simple & Well Made

816 days ago by ShipWreck | 4 comments »

I stopped by WoodCraft this morning to see what they had in stock for marking gauges. They had the Veritas dual marking gauge and the Cosman. Both were very well made and sold for the same price. I would have been happy with either one. I decided on the Cosman because the head/face has a nice flat area to prevent the tool from rolling off the bench. I got it home and marked about 10-12 lines along some red oak. I started at the 1/2” range all the way out to 5” in 1/2” incre...

A well spent $29.00

A well spent $29.00

If you cut as sloppy as I do, it is always nice to have a good set of paring/gouging/shaving chisels. I wanted a set butt chisels even back when I was strictly using machinery for woodworking. Butt chisels are really nice for using one handed. I have known about these WoodRiver chisels for a while, but never bothered with them due to alot of negative reviews. I stopped by my local WoodCraft yesterday looking for a piece of Beechwood for a mallet head that I want to make. I happened to see th...

Pretty good vise for the money

Pretty good vise for the money

831 days ago by ShipWreck | 9 comments »

I picked this up at my local WoodCraft store on sale about a month ago. I saw it laying in a opened box and thought that I would give it a quick look. I was not looking to buy a vise at the moment, but I knew I would be needing one sooner or later. This vise appeared to be pretty well made, so I ended up cashing out with it. I finally got around to mounting it to my “crapper” work bench this weekend. The bench in the picture was actually built during a lunch break as a tool stora...

BitterSweet week for my woodshop

BitterSweet week for my woodshop

1629 days ago by ShipWreck | 10 comments »

Got laid off back in August due to the housing/construction slow down, and things are not looking any better in the near future. I gave up on looking for work and decided to start my own home repair business. Now that I am using my 1 car garage/shop as a base for my business, I decided that I need more portability in my setup, .... so that means I sold off my stationary tools this week. :( Gone are my beloved Delta 36-979 table saw, dust collector, Dewalt air compressor, and Craftsman 6...
