Work Bench Magazine

01-02-2011 04:46 PM by ElmoSr | 10 comments »

All I want to do today is vent,,,,my favorite magazine has sold out. I have been reading/using Work Bench for 20 years, and I have a collection going back to the 50’s. They have so changed the format that Work Bench has completely nothing like Work Bench was. Am I the only person that dislikes this change.

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...

A Favorite Tool...The Wixey Digital Angle Gauge

12-28-2010 08:19 PM by Bob Simmons | 13 comments »

We often read reviews of tools at the time when the tool is just released. However, this review is of a tool I have steadily used over the last 2 years and it is quite simply a joy to use. The Wixey digital angle gauge has the ability to take the woodworker’s skills to the next level because it is easy to use along with being very accurate. No longer does the woodworker have to rely on the less than accurate gauges of a table saw or a miter saw to approximate the angles to be set. One c...

Try Anti-Fatigue Mats...your feet will thank you!

12-23-2010 09:24 PM by Bob Simmons | 21 comments »

In a recent article and video, Let's Install Wood Inlay Bandings I mentioned the use of anti fatigue mats during a woodworking procedure. The situation called for me to be in one place for quite a hours as I would be working at my workbench fitting and installing wood inlay bandings into the dadoes of twelve picture frames. To be more efficient I moved my bandsaw with a mobile base closer to my bench where I could simply turn 180 degrees from the bandsaw to the workbench. It sure beats walkin...

Mississippi Hardwood dealer

12-22-2010 03:51 AM by Dave | 3 comments »

Hey guys. I have been wanting to get some fresh materials for projects. I did not want to pay for shipping or the fuel to go get it. So I spent about 3 hours last night looking for a local dealer. I found one In Clinton MS. Pickens Hardwoods Inc. These nice people were not on the woodfinder site. And the nearest dealer was a 4 hour drive. This place is gigantic. And the owners are very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I love living in the hospitality state. Here is the site site.They...

My Observations of the DeWalt DWS520SK TrackSaw

12-21-2010 12:38 AM by Marty Backe | 7 comments »

After having used the Dewalt TrackSaw for a bit, I thought I’d share my observations of its setup and use. In this video I discuss some items that are not generally addressed in other reviews that I’ve seen. In this second part of my review, I share my opinions of the few accessories that are available for the saw. There’s one accessory in particular that you want to avoid at all costs.

The Re-designed Mortise Pal #1: Evolution to Excellence

12-05-2010 11:14 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

If you didn’t have to improve a great product would you bother? Would your improvements be incremental or would you really go for it? This is a blog not just about the simplicity and functionality of this jig, but also the progression of the inventor’s ideas and how they are incorporated into the latest model. For those not familiar with this tool, it is a router jig that facilitates perfectly sized and matched mortises for fixed or loose tenon joinery. It was won many awar...

Jet Bandsaw #1: Bandsaw Update #2 (pics fixed!)

11-15-2010 06:21 PM by Crushgroovin | 2 comments »

I finally recieved most of the needed parts for restoring the ancient Jet Bandsaw I picked up. I found a fantastic guy on eBay who was a wealth of knowledge and provides amazing service to his customers. His eBay ID is machacc and I would highly recommend him if you are looking for Machinery Parts, Tool Accessories, Router Bits, or Incra products. I don’t know much about him other than he was very helpful when I inquired about different parts, he sells at a competitive price, and ships ...
