Lie Nielson Honing guide

10-20-2017 08:05 PM by newwoodbutcher | 0 comments »

I never really devoted the required time or effort to learn to free hand sharpen chisels and plane irons. I feebly tried a few times but it never really worked well for me. Over the years, I’ve seen and read about the contests between the hand sharpening experts and the honing guide users pretty much resulting in a sharpness draw, with the free hand approach saving time. I never realized however how much extra time the honing guide approach took. I started sharpening my planes and chisels...

Finish Denibber Does a Great Job

Finish Denibber Does a Great Job

10-20-2017 07:40 PM by TungOil | 1 comment »

I was speaking recently with a professional refinisher, lamenting about how I always end up with some dust nibs in my sprayed finish no matter how careful I am. He told me about this very interesting tool – The Konig Metal Planer – that he uses to remove nibs. This tool is essentially a short section from a wide float mounted in a phenolic body such that it works much like a hand plane. The tool comes in a protective leather ‘wrap’ that attaches easily with velcro...

Comparing the older US-made Biesemeyer with the newer model

Comparing the older US-made Biesemeyer with the newer model

10-20-2017 07:14 AM by David Smith | 5 comments »

My most regrettable mistake in 40+ years of woodworking was selling an older US-made Biesemeyer fence (the white one with the flag and eagle on it). I was selling an old Craftsman bench saw and decided to let the fence go with the saw—otherwise the saw would have probably sold as scrap iron. Ever since then, I’ve wanted a Biesemeyer fence again. I constantly combed eBay and checked craigslist, but all the Biesemeyer fences were either in poor shape, too expensive, or ‘loc...

Homeright Large and Small Spray Shelters

Homeright Large and Small Spray Shelters

10-19-2017 11:27 PM by Bobthewoodbutcher | 2 comments »

I usually spray paint in my garage, blocking off my surroundings with lots of cloth, plastic, paper, etc. Not too good but it works. I found the Homeright Large and Small Spray Shelters online (Amazon and others) and decided to give it a try. I haven’t actually painted in it yet, but I’m very pleased with what I got. It is well made, nicely designed, stores compactly, and looks like it will work just fine. The material is lightweight, and has a net in front which rolls up out...

Tough, Affordable, Accurate Saw

Tough, Affordable, Accurate Saw

10-18-2017 01:55 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

It’s about time somebody posts a review… I’ll take up the baton… I was thinking about all the tools in my shop, and the one that stands out as earning its money back many times is my chopsaw. I bought this saw quite a long time ago (I was in high school, to be honest). To date, I have only ever adjusted the fence a tiny bit, and swapped out dull blades. The saw has served me well and maintained power and accuracy to this day. The DW703 is the saw I own (the firs...

POOR SERVICE AFTER THE SALE

POOR SERVICE AFTER THE SALE

I did a lot of research before buying a sander , Some of the thing I wanted in the sander was , I wanted a Double drum sander , Pay a little extra now to save time later , Next I want it wide to sand 20 -24 wood panels, and at least be able to sand 6-8 thick or deeper , it case I wanted to sand a box or something, and a descent price ,so it came down to the Delta 26 inch wide 31-481 or the grizzly 24 inch model well I thought I done a lot of research , but I didn’t , I find any revi...

Even though they’ve had a recent price increase on this unit it’s still an excellent buy. Even compared to online companies that specialize in woodworking and machine shop machines this is a feature packed press and it was in stock at my local Lowe’s so no shipping charges which for packaging this large and heavy are not cheap. Packing was in very good condition given the size and weight. Some of the styrofoam packing was broken but nothing significant or in places where it ...

Defective Out Of The Box

Defective Out Of The Box

09-25-2017 08:03 PM by Wodbug | 9 comments »

Update 09/28/2017:Was in contact with Jerry Cole, In Line, this morning. He was out of pocket for several weeks and is now active again. We talked about the bowed platforms and as both sides are veneered and even with me putting a cleat on the rear edge of the platform, did not make the platform flat. Jerry is calling PTree to see if they will replace both platforms, not the complete system. My shipping cost should be about 15.00. That I can do. The appr. cost of shipping at 70.00 came from a...

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

09-23-2017 11:23 PM by Rudy81 | 7 comments »

After many years of working on a basic Jet JWTS-10 that I got off Cragislist, I finally got a chance to purchase a Sawstop PCS. The saw purchase came after adding a Clear View Cyclone to the shop, but that’s another story. The Sawstop packaging was outstanding. Ease of assembly and directions were excellent. Fit and finish were also excellent and I found the tool alignment and calibration to be very good right out of the box. I purchased the PCS 3hp. unit with the 52” fence sys...
