First impression of my new Nova Voyager drill press.

03-03-2017 02:02 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 22 comments »

I have just upgraded my old variable speed drill press to a Nova Voyager. I shall try to give an unabashed summary of the machine; however, at $2,400 (Aus.) I may be a tad biased with a tendency to justify my extravagance. The drill press installed,There is one prerequisite to owning a Nova Voyager drill press. You need a wife with expensive taste in shoes, dresses and handbags (most of us have one of those)… and a good supply of vino. Then all you need to do is prime yourself with ple...

Moberg Tools Small Router Plane Review

03-01-2017 03:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

Video link is here if you prefer not to read https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cJsGbmom-g I heard about John Moberg’s tools from a friend of mine who has both his spokeshave and his router plane. I decided to get ahold of the router plane for myself and see what it’s like. The fit and finish is what you’d expect from a handmade tool. This is a user tool not a collector (thought it looks quite awesome in my opinion) It’s similar to a Stanley 271 plane but the &#...

Shop stuff #82: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 13 Disaster.

Things go wrong with the finishing process. I don’t get it figured out on this video, but I keep trying and trying. I go through the finish process, then strip it because I was not happy and start again. View on YouTube

Ridgiid Customer Service

02-10-2017 06:06 PM by Cedarhead | 7 comments »

Last night while using my Ridgid Oscillating Edge Belt / Spindle Sander Model number 44241 I heard a sound that could only mean trouble. Upon inspection I found that a black plastic disc that engages the belt sander function to the drive spindle had broken. My first thought was I would look up the diagram on the internet and order the part. Found the part online at every parts source I could connect to and they all said the same thing “Part #830291 Obsolete-not available”. Since my sa...

The way I finish my boxes.

01-29-2017 09:12 AM by FancyChip | 3 comments »

The update of the way I finish/will be finishing my boxes: 1st layer – it always goes the Danish oil without any tones. I think, this layer of oil prepares the wood grain and carved surface for the next layers of Danish oil with any kind of wood tones (light or dark ones), and doesn’t let that tone of oil to go deep into the grain – those few % of lacquer in oil act as a polymerization. After the 1st layer and before the 2nd one – “sanding” the carved...

Hi guys, I got this super cool toy to play with! In this video I am reviewing and testing this moister meter that works using a different principle that the regular moister meters (it mesures the materials capacity and thus its moister content by simply toughing the material/wood). It is a 4 min presentation video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFwyUGH5bvc

Shop stuff #74: Mr Heater - FAIL!

01-28-2017 10:57 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

I bought this tank top propane heater for the shop last year. I am barely into my second 20 pound tank of fuel and the ground wire to the heat sensor failed. Poor workmanship here. It has been well taken care of in its short life, but you can’t overcome a poor product. Sometimes you come across a product that makes a “Not Recommended” list in your books. View on YouTube
