This is a really preliminary review on this plane. I haven’t gotten a ton of time with it but I’ve taken a few passes with it just to try things out. I’ve been wanting a No 7 for quite a while and I’ve been on the hunt at every antique store I drive by and on Craigslist. I know you can get one on eBay but I’ve been screwed over in the past there so I’m pretty leery of buying on there. I also just for the heck of it threw this Lie-Nielson on my amazon wish l...

Great Tool for some tasks

Great Tool for some tasks

I have been using my Flatmaster drum sander (http://stockroomsupply.ca/shop/drum-sanders/18-flatmaster.html) for 2 years now and thought that I had something yet to add to the previous reviews for this product. Set-up:I purchased my Flatmaster complete with the metal top sans the motor; married it with a NIB – OS Dayton motor. Assembly and motor installation / setup was straight forward and easy enough. That said I had interference between the belt and my housing, the opening in the h...

Relief for my aching joints.

Relief for my aching joints.

Well, while I refuse to grow up, I must admit, I am growing older. My knees and my feet are complaining on a regular basis. My concrete floor is cold and hard (duh). My wife and I went to our local BJ’s Wholesale Club (like Sams and Costco) to get a membership. She had gotten a good deal on a membership through Living Social. As we were wandering the aisles, we came upon these floor mats. They come in a packet of 8 – 2 by 2 squares for a total of 32 square feet for I think @ $1...

Horrible quality, not what I expected from Porter Cable

Horrible quality, not what I expected from Porter Cable

02-25-2015 10:37 PM by drobertson | 14 comments »

I am honestly trying to be fair with this review, but I am extremely frustrated with this scroll saw. In the past I have been a happy owner of many Porter Cable products. At this point I am reluctant to buy any more. About a year ago my wife started to enjoy using the old clunky scroll saw we had to make kids puzzles. She got pretty good at it and now does it as a small side business. Each week she spends about 8-10 hours creating puzzles on the scroll saw for sale at our local farmers ...

Be Square and Use This!

Hello all! As a new woodworker, I’m currently tooling up my shop with the happy anticipation of making “great things”. My mantra when shopping has always been to look for the best “bang for my buck”, and I’m pretty satisfied with the results so far. My latest find: the Empire Level e2992 True Blue 7” Rafter Square, a.k.a. a “Speed Square”. Made in the USA from aircraft-grade aluminum, this rafter square has stamped gradation marks, ...

These Ridge Carbide blades are awesome

These Ridge Carbide blades are awesome

I just purchased the 8” dado set and the TS2000 blades at the Novi, MI Woodworking show (great discount if you buy both). I was a little leary as I had not seen these before. I quickly googled reviews and they were quite positive. These things cut like butter and are SMOOTH. The dado is clean with no tear out and the bottom of the dado is very smooth. The saw blade cuts to a smooth—dare I say—shiny surface. Definitely could be joined immediately. I use Forrest blade, so that...

I bought a Craftsman 14” BAS350 bandsaw a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to get a 14” bandsaw for my workshop. I am basically an aspiring hobbyist that likes to make furniture and other woodcraft. I don’t own a table saw nor do I plan to, so a bandsaw seemed like the next logical tool to add to the suite of tools. So after doing the standard bandsaw research I settled on the Craftsman. I picked the Craftsman for a few reasons:1. They had one in stock at the local Sear...

Lie-Nielson Large Scraper Plane

Lie-Nielson Large Scraper Plane

02-21-2015 01:30 PM by MC | 2 comments »

I am working on a project which I have incorporated a piece of figured oak. Even with a blade with a fresh and carefully honed edge in my smoothing plane I could not prevent tear out on the board. I ordered the scraping plane specifically for the purpose of preparing the surface of this figured wood. The #112 finish is perfect and the blade thickness is substantial. While waiting for the delivery of the #112 I watched the LN video on setting up this plane. The video is essential as the dir...

Crude but useful - 4 stars for hobby use, 2 stars for professional

Crude but useful - 4 stars for hobby use, 2 stars for professional

This site’s reviews have been very helpful to me of late, and I thought I’d share my experiences with this Harbor Freight sander. My personal experience seems to differ from other reviews I’ve seen that trashed this guy. I’m a complete noob, and this is my first stationary sander of any type. So – grain of salt and all that. Overall, I am satisfied with this sander. I’ve had it for a month and used it on several projects. I feel like it is a good ...

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

I am writing my review in order to help people with their decision on a purchase of this unit. Before I begin I had some reservations about this and was unsure about making this investment, Even though it is an economical unit, 350 to 400 bucks is a lot to throw away on a piece of garbage that doesn;t work correctly Anyways I am more than pleased with this purchase. I never give 5 stars because when we write these posts we have no way of determining on how long something will last. I may writ...
