Review of the Laguna Tools 2 HP Mobile Cyclone Dust Collector

12-29-2010 08:03 PM by Marty Backe | 23 comments »

I recently joined the ranks of woodworkers that use a dust collector. In my case I purchased a 2 HP mobile cyclone unit from Laguna Tools. The following two videos show my experience purchasing, setting up, and using the dust collector. Although I’ll be keeping the dust collector for reasons explained in the video, in the end I wish that I had bought a competing product from another company. In this second part of my review I wrap up some of the frustrations that I’ve expe...

Learning Curve

12-29-2010 08:00 PM by DaveLeHardt | 6 comments »

There’s one lesson I seem to keep relearning, and that’s how much trouble I have working with sheet wood, MDF in particular. Not only is it bloody heavy, for the life of me, I cannot get a square corner cut on it, or get it cut to the right length/width. Well, I canif I can fit it on my tablesaw. And that I think is the problem. I’ve tweaked out the saw, miter gage (mostly), and fence so that I can get reliable cuts from it. But if I can’t fit the piece on the table sa...

Machinist Toolbox #10: Wrapping it up - Lee Valley Style

12-29-2010 07:51 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Not much to say, nor anything to show in this post. Just received the locking hardware from Lee Valley which was the last thing I needed to finish this build at this point. I thought about making the locking set myself, but seeing the set LV offers it just didn’t make any sense so I just ordered it from them with the Free Shipping they offer this week. arrived in 2 days and installed today – very nice set, and works like a charm. The set I got is this one: And can be foun...

Changing Carving Tools

12-29-2010 06:54 PM by mpounders | 3 comments »

I spent a week last September carving with Adina Huckins at the Wareagle seminars and got to see a lot of different techniques. I was particularly inpressed with her tools and how she used them. She carves with full size Pfeil Swiss gouges, primarily #11 veiners in different sizes. She also has these ground to a thumbnail profile and uses them on everything from large carvings to the tiniest dolls. So, for Christmas, I added some #11s, in 15, 10, and 5mm sizes. I am never disappointed with th...

The beginning

12-29-2010 04:26 PM by Gator | 2 comments »

I am going to attempt to build a box for my father in law to store coins in. The criteria is fairly simple. ( in theory ) The box must be small enough to fit inside a floor safe, yet big enough to be able to carry multiple coins to a show. Box size will be approx. 8.5” x 8.5” x 12” deep, with three flush mounted drawers in the front, with 3 storage compartments running the length of each drawer that will be used to store coin display cards that are 2” square. I ...
