Work(shop) in Progress #6: New Table Saw : Unpacking and Assembly of Ridgid R4511

1980 days ago by PurpLev | 50 comments »

So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...

Shop Tools #2: Work Sharp - The Wood Tool Sharpener Review

2645 days ago by WayneC | 43 comments »

I have been looking for a sharpener for a while and came close to coughing up $250 for the Jet clone of the Tormak when the woodworking show was in town last month. I had also seen the Work Sharp on the web. Dan Like had seen one in action and given it his endorsement. There is a video of it on thier web site if your interested in seeing it in action. Wood Magazine has a review of it as well as a video of it in action. Two weeks ago when I was on my way home from the bay area I stopped ...

Review of the Powermatic PM1500 15 inch Bandsaw

509 days ago by Marty Backe | 42 comments »

In this video, I review the new Powermatic 15 inch bandsaw. I recently upgraded from my 14 inch Delta 1HP bandsaw. I was originally considering an 18 inch bandsaw until I heard about the Powermatic offering. I liked the idea of the resaw capacity of a larger bandsaw, but the compactness of this 15 inch. The two bandsaws are shown side-by-side, and then I show the various features of the new saw. There’s a lot to like about this new Powermatic offering, but I also don’t shy a...

Interestingexperience at Home Depot.......

1197 days ago by lilredweldingrod | 41 comments »

Last month my wife went to Home Depot for some little something for me. When she came home she handed me the receipt and asked me to take the survey listed on it. So I did and it was about customer service etc. I told them exactly what I had experienced on my last two visits to get plywood(waiting an hour and half for a helper and leaving because they were a no show) and I complained that it appeared that they were returning to the Chinese crap. I then promptly forgot about it because no one ...

Ebonizing; Steel Wool and Vinegar

2178 days ago by Allison | 38 comments »

A few months ago I had read an article about ebonizing wood with steel wool and vinegar. Awhile back I tried this and absolutely nothing happened. I never even tried again. Ebonizing is a stain of sorts I guess. I also have heard there are several ways of doing this. The reason the original article caught my eye was because I sure as hell don’t have the money to buy Ebony (wood), and I am forever wanting or needing dark/black wood for my projects and I do not like to use paint, to the ...

Shop Air Filtration #1: Media Filters

2053 days ago by Bob42 | 37 comments »

I have been reading and commenting recently about shop air filtration and the concern for it. My decision to write this was to give the LJ’s community some facts about air filtration. Let me start with my knowledge base. I started my own air filtration business after my son was diagnosed with severe asthma at the age of 18 months. He is now 20 years old. My wife (an RN) and I immersed our selves into learning as mush as we could to make his breathing easier. We attended numerous seminar...

The first Art Box I completed and later posted was “Rachels Box”. I wasnt sure how it would be received, but it was a big hit right off the line. It just recently topped over 10,000 views and is the most viewed box on LJ. Wow! http://lumberjocks.com/projects/tag/box/by/views Its popularity and the ones that followed were what motivated me to post the tutorial which was a help to many.http://lumberjocks.com/Argyllshire/blog/9415 I still get mail asking about this style of box...
