I saw a contest #1: 50 Piece Router Bit Giveaway Drawing

11-01-2009 01:34 AM by RouterManiac | 6 comments »

I found this giveaway and thought I would pass it along. Its a drawing for a free router bit set with cabinet. I can always use more router bits and I am sure you can too. The odds have to be better than the lottery for winning. You could give it as a nice gift or keep it for yourself. Wouldn’t you know it, I bought this set about a year ago and now they are giving one away! 50 Piece router bit set

Well, the Woodworkingshow at Sacramento Convention Center is done. About 25 LumberJocks (and one LumberJill) signed into our booth.Things started mid-day Friday and completed 4:00PM Sunday.

We told the LumberJock’s story to about 100 or more people. some, of course, were not interested, but a surprising number took the ‘businees card’ I created as ...

Dust collection question

01-12-2010 03:23 PM by Vincent_Von_Gotcha | 10 comments »

I’m getting ready to assemble a dust collection system. I’m concerned that my 16 Gallon craftsman shop vac might not have power to collect for my 16X16 shop. I am planning to use a combo of PVC pipe and flexible 2 1/2 or 4 ” hose. Has anyone ever done this? any problems?

A Flag Display Box #1: Another Honor and Privilege...

02-03-2010 12:21 AM by littlecope | 11 comments »

I haven’t had a whole lot of time lately but began work on making a box for my Dad’s Burial Flag. It’s been going agonizingly slow, with so little time available… He earned his Flag as a 20-year Naval Reservist, one of hundreds of thousands of young men who volunteered for service when things were heating up over in Korea. Patriotic Fervor about our country was still wide-spread and strong, happening so soon after WWII, and so many volunteered that the Services didn...

Got Lucky

03-14-2010 04:35 AM by zlatanv | 6 comments »

Not a big fan of garage sales, but my wife is, so in an effort to not discourage her from going she will call me if she sees any tools (I think she is doing reverse psychology, it works), most of the stuff she finds is junky, but today she asked if I needed a hand sander, I always ask for her to send me a pic. This is what she sent It was pretty ruff looking when I went to look at it, no batteries or charger. Caked with stuff, looked like drywall dust and over spray, the shroud looked ...
