Fein removes tub surround

07-06-2009 07:54 PM by EricWrights | 4 comments »

I had been holding off buying this tool for several years. Recently one of my customers in whose house I had installed a fiberglass tub surround had a crack appear in the soap dish of the unit. The company sent someone out to fix the crack as the surround was still within the twenty year guarantee period. The repair failed within a year and the company at its option decided to replace the complete surround. When I install these surrounds I use twice the amount of adhesive that is supplied by ...

A Strategy for Woodworking #22: Curiosity

08-29-2014 02:39 AM by Gary Rogowski | 1 comment »

What causes us to look round the next bend? What makes people want to fly or cross the ocean or play with fire? Why do you do something and then do it again just to see if the results will be the same? Why ask why? All these questions are asked because of a simple if not altogether human trait. This urge pushes us to try things to see what will happen. Like a dog putting his head down between the rocks to sniff out a scent. What is there? What was there? What might be there? Is it that ...

Hand Tools: Thrift Stores, Hock Shops and Garage Sale acquisitions #1: Clamps and Pliers

04-22-2011 11:35 PM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

Used tools: Often a great bargain, occasionally a spectacular bargain, sometimes a puzzle, rarely but delightfully a chance to acquire something with soul and a story to go along with it. Clamps are certainly about the least glamorous of all our toys, er, tools. But you can’t have enough, as the adage goes, and because they don’t make noise or sawdust or plug in, they don’t have much emotional draw. I’ve managed to bridge that and make it a passion to find an...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #24: All Good Wood Projects Need....

08-18-2008 04:03 AM by frank | 3 comments »

All Good Wood Projects Need…. ....a StoryLine! Yes that’s right, and with the story line one can start with an image in their head, which when transferred to wood, shows a start. Now this project began before….where we are jumping into at this stage….but the before only included some wood, jointing of the edges, planning the two faces, then the process of glue ups, cutting the inside out with a jigsaw and the original orbital pre-sanding with #60, #80 and #100 gr...

Tools of the Trade - The Evolution of My Woodworking Tools

03-07-2013 02:35 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

Every wood worker has to start somewhere. My somewhere began with the purchase of a Shop Smith and this began the evolution of my woodworking tools. My mother and father had a friend that was selling their Shop Smith multi tool system back in the mid 1990’s and I was lucky enough to purchase it. This Shop Smith is perfect for doing small projects but not big construction jobs like I was used to. I decided that buying this system gave me a reason to put my creativeness to work and begin doing ...

Making the garage a shop #7: Weather is nice, I'm slowing down.

03-21-2011 03:52 AM by Shawn K. | 3 comments »

The weather has been nice lately. Nice enough to work in the garage without a jacket. You’d think I’d be stepping up the conversion of my garage, but instead I’ve been letting myself get distracted, wanting to actually build things. So last weekend I made a crosscut sled, and tried my hand at a box joint jig. The crosscut sled was a success, the shop made runners seem to be working, and the accuracy is impressive, with less than half a millimeter off square over 36R...
