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...

Non-Destructive Moister Meter (testo 616)

01-29-2017 02:10 AM by CrazyRussianWoodShop | 1 comment »

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

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1812: Elipse Low-Profile Dust Mask Review

01-12-2017 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

(I want to note that I am was in no way compensated for this review. I researched and purchased this mask on my own.) In today's blog post, I am going to talk about something that I think is rather important. It is something that I have been lax on myself, but I made a vow with my woodworking friend (Leldon) that we are going to change things and try to do a bit better about it. What I am referring to is wearing a dust mask when doing our woodworking and cutting wood. Now I a...

Wooden Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 #1: Google Sketchup and Design

01-05-2017 10:28 PM by TObenhuber | 0 comments »

Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...

2016 Project - Expand the Woodworking Shop #2: The Assembly/Finishing Room

12-30-2016 09:25 AM by DrDrewInOhio | 3 comments »

Started Winter 2016 – Finished (nothing is ever finished in a shop) Spring 2016 There is much more detail on our MeetUp site about the expansion. Studwalls – if you have twisted studs… use a parallel clamp to coerce them into being straight while nailing them. Electric… the easy way. Run the romex first… mark location on floor… hang drywall… cut out for the boxes afterwards. Painting the Walls and Floor...

Daves Workshop #4: Drill Master 68287 18v drill vs 3/4" auger bit and pine 2x4. Who will win?

12-22-2016 04:27 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

Okay for this demo / test I put a full charge on the Drill Master 68287 18v 3/8” cordless drill, and threw my most common auger bit size at it, my 3/4” Irwin SpeedBor auger bit. (The one I use for boring 3/4” holes in tree stumps for using Stump Rot). Is this drill up to this fairly simple and common task? Watch for yourself and find out! View on YouTube
