Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide

Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide

07-06-2015 01:56 PM by Matthew Morris | 0 comments »

View on YouTube A quick review of the Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide. For years I’ve used the regular Mark II Honing Guide and recently purchased the Narrow Blade Guide. I found the new clamping guide is perfect for using with chisels.

Dust collector cfm to mod changes

Dust collector cfm to mod changes

07-05-2015 12:13 PM by Monkeyman1 | 5 comments »

This is ment to give and idea of what happens to air flow when we do mods to a dust collector. I have been getting along with my vacuum ok, but time to upgrade. After stalking (lol) this site for a few months and checking Craig’s list all the time, I decided to buy a HF dust collector. I feel for the price it is very tough to beat.This is a very unscientific test and due to either bad jack on my cellphone (new Cat S-50) or due to the cheapness ($40) of a ABM-100 anemometer. This is men...

They are finally here...

They are finally here...

07-01-2015 07:15 PM by DKV | 17 comments »

7/1/2015 – I will clean them up and start reviewing them tonight or tomorrow. All I know right now is they are very oily and the tips are covered in plastic. They will be rated 1 star until I find out different. More later… 7/2/2015 – Just got done testing 4 bits. Each bit was used to drill 5 holes. When the holes were measured each was small by 1/128-1/256. The dial calipers I used also come from Lee Valley. Since a woodshop is not a machine shop I am totally happy with ...

Freud router bit broke into 3 pieces.

Freud router bit broke into 3 pieces.

06-25-2015 06:06 PM by Julian | 22 comments »

I used this 3/8” up spiral bit for over a year when making mortises for a gate (in redwood).This bit did not get used very much. Supposedly it is solid carbide.Recently I was routing slots for a jig in a medium dense wood using my router table.When I was nearly finished I heard a bang and discovered the bit broke into 3 pieces.These router bits are not cheap; over $50. I emailed Freud twice on from their website about thisand to find out if they warranty the bits. No response after 3...

Handy to have

Handy to have

06-24-2015 08:19 PM by edwood1975 | 4 comments »

Although I think a lot of Kregs products are exspensive they are extremely well made and they are made for the beginner in mind. I purchased this jig because I wanted to put shelf pin holes in an existing cabinet and it worked awesome, I especially like the simplicity of the jig. The Shelf Pin Jig also includes a dual-position, adjustable fence for custom hole placement, a locating pin for quick and accurate spacing reference, a jig extender that lets you connect multiple Shelf Pin Jigs...

SOMMERFELD 6 Piece Router Bit Set

SOMMERFELD 6 Piece Router Bit Set

06-21-2015 01:47 AM by MikeSpanky | 6 comments »

Never thought I’d be ordering such an expensive router bit set as this. That was until my wife and I began talking about new kitchen cabinets. I knew kitchen designs as well as methods for building them had changed since I last built a set for mom and dad over 25 years ago. It was when I began my research on YouTube that I saw how much things had changed. I had seen raised panel doors in the big box stores and loved the look. But to tackle A job like this I would have be out quite a bit...

Great cutting bits

Great cutting bits

06-20-2015 03:48 PM by DKV | 9 comments »

I bought this set of drill bits because I was always needing a bit a tad larger or smaller than the bit I had available. This is a set from 1/16 to 1/2 inches by 1/64th. It’s the “by 1/64th” that I bought the set. Now I can easily go a tad bigger or smaller. The bits cut very clean holes entry and exit but all new bits probably do. The real test comes after a year or so of use. These bits get 4 stars until I see them holding their edge after a year’s use.

The Hitachi 3-1/4 router - My Two Cents

The Hitachi 3-1/4 router - My Two Cents

06-20-2015 01:34 AM by MikeSpanky | 10 comments »

I purchased mine about a year ago with one purpose in mind, using it strictly for dovetails on a Leigh jig. When I pulled it from the box I knew I had made a poor choice on this one. Thirteen pounds is no easy tool to handle for any long period of time. I have terrible tendoitis and back trouble, and this thing was a monster. Nevertheless, the money was spent and I was gullible. Besides it had the POWER. This router has a variable speed knob on one handle with easy access. It is a plunge r...

BOSCH Glide Saw, Up For Review

BOSCH Glide Saw, Up For Review

06-18-2015 03:13 PM by woodshopmike | 11 comments »

The BOSCH GCM12SD dual bevel glide saw is a remarkable tool that takes accuracy and ease of use to a new level. Now that I’ve completely let the cat out of the bag that I like this tool, lets see why. The most obvious features are the upfront controls and the super smooooooth axial glide that BOSCH has engineered and patented. These upfront controls not only allow for rotating the table, but also make it possible to tilt the blade left to right. Yes, that means you no longer have ...

A real workhorse

A real workhorse

06-17-2015 10:54 AM by mramseyISU | 14 comments »

I’ve had this planer for almost 2 years now so I’ve had plenty of time to make up my mind I think. I got it as a package with the add-on tables and an extra set of blades. Out of the box all I needed to do was get the tables attached and it was ready to go. One thing to know going into this you need something to direct the chips off of it. The chip blower REALLY works and wood chips will be flying all over. I made the mistake of using it without anything and it looked like a torna...
