Thompson bowl gouge and Thompson detail gouge

Thompson bowl gouge and Thompson detail gouge

2033 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 7 comments »

I have seen a few postings on Lumberjocks about Thompson lathe tools (www.thompsonlathetools.com) and wanted to let everyone know these are some of the best turning tools that I have ever used. I purchased my first Thompson tool a couple of years ago and now own the complete set. Pictured are the 7/16” Thompson detail gouge and the 5/8” Thompson bowl gouge. The tools arrive sharp and ready to use right out of the box. They hold an edge better than every other tool that I have. ...

I was given the opportunity to test out the Steussy 6” bowl saw and I was impressed.

Senco Dura Spin only average

I purchased the model DS202 14 volt Senco dura spin fastening system from Home Depot. The kit comes with a hard case, two bateries and a charger. Designed to shoot strips of screws into drywall and other materials. In two large jobs I have had several misfeeds from the gun and it gets jammed up easily. Have gone back through the instructions and fine tuned it but the results were the same. When it is working at peak performance it is a beast, but when it jams it is something else.

DeWalt 13" two speed planer

DeWalt 13" two speed planer

2372 days ago by jeffthewoodwacker | 19 comments »

Recently purchased the DeWalt model 735 13 inch two speed planer and stand. Right out of the box the planer had very few parts to assemble. The instructions were very easy to understand. I had to make a few minor adjustments in the height adjustment scale, but the preset stops were right on the money. Gave the planer a real test with some cedar boards that were up to 10 inches in width and the machine did great. I planed them down close to 3/4 inch thick and then switched to the slower ...
