GOBSMACKED WITH DISBELIEF - Can this really be true?!!!

09-04-2014 01:47 AM by Jerry | 34 comments »

I am so glad I took the precaution of calling Skil’s support department before I purchased this SANDER. Not understanding how I would be able to replace the sandpaper on the detail accessories I called to ask. I was ASTONISHED to be told that the sandpaper on the 8 detail accessories can NOT be replaced, rather you have to BUY A NEW SET OF DETAIL SANDERS EVERY TIME THE SANDPAPER ON THEM WEARS DOWN. NOTE: I’ve edited this part of the original post because of new informatio...

Harbor Freight 4 In. X 24 In. Variable Speed Professional Belt Sander

Harbor Freight 4 In. X 24 In. Variable Speed Professional Belt Sander

05-18-2014 01:55 AM by Jerry | 21 comments »

Oh boy… This belt sander is the BOMB. Maybe I’m just enamored with the fact that I finally have a belt sander, but after using the 25% off coupon and comparing the specs with others, I’ve not found its equal at this price point. The bad: I had to return the first one because it randomly sped up to full speed no matter what the speed setting. I had to return the second one I bought because the tracking adjustment screw had been badly bent ( in shipping I suppose ). T...

http://www.harborfreight.com/digital-mini-moisture-meter-67143.html Again another stunning value from Harbor Freight $12.99 for something that measures moisture in wood, masonry, and doubles as a centigrade or fahrenheit thermometer. Compare this to 25 or 30 bucks elsewhere.

http://www.harborfreight.com/500-lb-horizontal-toggle-clamp-96233.html Hard to beat for the money, I just bought two and am very very happy with them. Very substantial and very high quality. For $5.49 as opposed to Rockler’s > $20.00 price, they’re hard to beat.

New Router for the Router Table

New Router for the Router Table

02-09-2014 10:04 PM by Jerry | 6 comments »

This router is amazing. Quiet, powerful – 2.25 HP, variable speed – 10,000-24,000 RPM, a breeze to adjust, which you can do three ways. 1) With the adjustment screw2) By pushing the release button you can adjust quickly to a given range, then dial it in3) Best of all, with a T-Handle wrench ( provided as part of the package ) through the bottom of the router, this makes it perfect for a router table, and you don’t have the added expense of a router lift. You can also ...

Veritas 1:6 Dovetail Saw Guide Model 05T02.01

Veritas 1:6 Dovetail Saw Guide Model 05T02.01

01-09-2014 11:23 PM by Jerry | 8 comments »

I got this wonderful little guide for Christmas and just now had my first opportunity to try it out. It took me a couple of minutes to wrap my head around how it works, but once I did, I was pretty impressed. You set the clamp in one set of grooves for the tails, and then slide it off and set it into a second set of grooves for the pins. I say set of grooves, but that’s somewhat misleading. There are three grooves in all, but the center groove serves double duty and is used in both orie...
