10 years and still going

10 years and still going

10-25-2014 03:06 PM by Canadianteacher | 4 comments »

I am a shop teacher at a middle school in Abbotsford BC. We purchased 8 of these Dewalt scroll saws 10 years ago and have have only had to replace 1 of them (the motor went after 9 years). One more saw is making some funny sounds in its upper arm and will most likely be done soon (I will take the motor and place it in my other saw). The saws get used by grade 6-8 students cutting from 3/4” alder to 1 and 3/4” basswood. I must say that my students are not easy on the saws and I hav...

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

10-25-2014 02:57 PM by JHAstrello | 6 comments »

Like many, I started out buying a few things from Harbor Freight – for the most part because of the perceived ‘Killer Deals’ that they offer. That, and the ability to get their now famous 20% off Super Coupon that can be copied and used for any one piece of product. Here is what I have bought recently, and my experience. HF Dust System – it’s still in the box awaiting installation.HF Benchtop Belt/Disk sanderHF 2 ton Crane – primarily purchased to help m...

Nitrile With the Stretch of Latex

Nitrile With the Stretch of Latex

10-25-2014 01:21 AM by JAAune | 5 comments »

At the shop we’ve been using nitrile gloves for many years in finishing or epoxy operations. For some time they were purchased from Lowes but they were flimsy and sold in $9 bags of 15 (for one-armed woodworkers?). Later we discovered Gemplers and their 8 and 4 mil gloves and were satisfied with those. They held up well and could often be used a couple times before tossing. We tried discounted gloves from Woodcraft but those were easy to tear and weren’t that much cheaper. ...

Cree 40 inch LED lighting fixture

Cree 40 inch LED lighting fixture

10-25-2014 12:07 AM by Sawdust4Blood | 5 comments »

I have a basement shop that had some lighting put in by the builder. It was enough to keep you from running into things but wasn’t really the quality of light that you would like to have while woodworking. So I had been looking at putting in something that would provide better light while I was working. Originally, I was thinking about standard T8 fluorescent tubes. While fluorescent has never been the kind of light that I prefer, for shop lighting it’s probably been the mo...

Has it really been five years? This week Charles Neil released the two hundred forty-fifth episode of his “Mastering Woodworking” show. For the one or two people in the woodworking world who don’t already know, “Mastering Woodworking” is a weekly video series produced in the workshop of Charles Neil, one of the biggest names in the craft. But is it any good? Well, as someone who has been a subscriber for a good portion of the show’s run, I think I’m qualified to give my opinion on the matter…...

Not Bad

Not Bad

10-24-2014 12:59 PM by Purrmaster | 2 comments »

My Home Depot has recently changed their sandpaper line from Norton to 3M. Previously they had Norton 3X papers. Now there is this stuff. I haven’t seen this particular “model” of sandpaper before and I think it’s exclusive to Home Depot. These papers are stearated and has adhesive on the backing paper. I’ve used the following grits of it: 60, 80, 100, 150, 220. My overall impression is: Pretty good. My main basis for comparison would be Norton 3X...

Porter Cable 4.5" Cordless Angle Grinder

Had a break in the middle of my project because I’m waiting on some parts, so I decided to review one of my recent tool purchases. I bought it at Lowes for $35. Tool buying tip: go find a sale online and ask the cashiers to price match. Lowes has a price +10% guarantee. Then you get another 5% if you put it on your Lowes credit card. See my video review:

The Horrible Stories About Laguna Are True

The Horrible Stories About Laguna Are True

10-22-2014 08:11 PM by Rockne | 18 comments »

I hate to sound like a complainer, so let me start out with something positive: the Minimax MM16 that I picked up when the Laguna purchase fell through is AWESOME. I’m fortunate to have some pretty nice machines, and the MM16 is a wonderful example of how things should be done. The only thing I would change about the mm16 is to give it a rack and pinion table . . . otherwise, color me very impressed. Now for the not-so-good: I ordered an LT14 SUV bandsaw from Rockler. Rockler...
