Mobile Base with a lot going for it ...

08-12-2018 04:53 AM by mel52 | 1 comment »

I have almost all tools in my shop on a mobile base of some sort. I have the Rockler step-on caster set and extra brackets to transfer the casters to other set-ups, home made ones with locking wheels, etc. I was having problems with my hip and couldn’t lean over to move the casters back and forth, and the bases with locking wheels wobbled just a little, and were hard to set. I checked HF and there’s were used by turning knobs ( on the floor ) to raise and lower the tool. While at ...

If I get more of these I will need sunglasses to work in my shop. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Lithonia-Lighting-2-8-ft-34-Watt-White-Integrated-LED-Shop-Light-SHLP-36IN-40K-80CRI-DNA/301158095 $15 at Home Depot. Great light. No switch, you have to plug in or use in a switched outlet. That suits me fine, I usually don’t turn on all the lights anyway.

Terrific clamp with a major (fixable) flaw

Terrific clamp with a major (fixable) flaw

08-03-2018 07:13 PM by ColonelTravis | 8 comments »

This should be a slam dunk 5-star product for hand tool users, a ridiculous design flaw knocks it down to a 4 because it’s fixable. I give the engineer who made this a big fat zero. I do not understand why Veritas ever let this issue out the door, or why they’ve never redesigned the problem. If you don’t have a tail/end vise (like me), this is a terrific substitute. I use holdfasts and notched battens but there are times when that doesn’t work so well. So I bought t...

Adds variable speed, subtracts power

Adds variable speed, subtracts power

07-28-2018 12:29 AM by JayT | 17 comments »

A few years ago, I got a great deal on a 10in Jet lathe that was on closeout. I wanted variable speed, but the deal was too good to pass up. I also knew this kit from Penn State Industries existed and thought I could do the conversion in the future and still have less invested than buying a new variable speed lathe. During the recent Mallet Swap, I was doing a lot of turning and finally decided to spring for this kit and was looking forward to not switching belts near as much. Issue #1,...

Gluboost vs CA for pen finishing

Gluboost vs CA for pen finishing

07-26-2018 06:36 PM by Andybb | 1 comment »

OK, I got my Gluboost trio the other day. In short, I like it a lot. First heard about Gluboost here, then read more about it here. Originally used by luthiers, there are a few youtube vids on the product. Sanded to 400-600 as usual. Then I used 2 coats of the thicker blue bottle of Fill n Finish with a spritz of accelerator in between, a quick wipe with .0000 steel wool, and repeat with 2-3 coats of the orange bottled thin formula and another light wipe of .0000, all with the lathe of...

Clear Gorilla Glue - Good for exotic oily woods

Clear Gorilla Glue - Good for exotic oily woods

07-25-2018 05:57 PM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I used several exotic woods for the 2018 mallet swap. Titebond glue was not recommended for use with the more oily exotics such as katalox, cocobolo, granadillo, bloodwood, African black wood. and ziricote. Research came up with Gorilla Clear Glue as a good candidate for these kinds of wood. The local orange box store had it in stock ~$6 for 3.75 oz. My application was laminating boards together, face-to-face. It spread quite well using a disposable brush. Initially, I applied it too...

Review of Powertec T-Tracks - Save 50% over Rockler T-Tracks

Review of Powertec T-Tracks - Save 50% over Rockler T-Tracks

07-25-2018 10:06 AM by Dan Thomas | 23 comments »

[EDIT] Apparently, I misunderstood the “review” category. So please forgive me for only pointing to my YouTube video. Here’s a more comprehensive review. The only t-tracks I’ve used in the past have been from Rockler. 3/4” wide, 3/8” thick, and made from aluminum. They work great, and if you buy them on sale, they’re not too terribly expensive. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed on Amazon that Powertec has t-tracks that appear to be virtually iden...
