Ridgid R2601 5" Sander Poor Quality

Ridgid R2601 5" Sander Poor Quality

09-18-2014 05:59 PM by txsawyer | 3 comments »

I bought the R2601 about 18 months ago. This sander has been in the repair shop more than it has been in my shop. I signed up for the Ridgid Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA) which is a joke. When sander started running erratically about a year ago, Ridgid told me to bring it to their repair facility which just happens to be a 5 hour drive for me. Told them I didn’t want to spend 20 hours or 2 days on the road. So the said said bring it to Home Depot which was much closer. Dropped it off...

Woodpecker's 6" Carpenter's Square

Woodpecker's 6" Carpenter's Square

09-18-2014 04:15 PM by timbertailor | 7 comments »

Not much you can say about any Carpenter’s Square. They have a wealth of uses every day and is probably everyone’s most used measurement and\or layout tool. So why buy the offering from Woodpecker’s? For one, it has a unique design that allows the square to sit on its base without falling over. Make’s checking 90 and 45 degree angles a snap. This feature also gives the tool heft which comes in handy. The quality of the materials insures accuracy of the tool ov...

New Custom Hand Planes

New Custom Hand Planes

09-18-2014 03:45 PM by OSU55 | 4 comments »

Lee Valley/Veritas is now offering custom hand planes. This is not a review, but this was news to me and I thought LJ’rs might find this interesting. All are a new bevel down design, sizes 4 to 7, choices for frog angles, tote size and angle, and blade type. Around $75 more than equivalent standard LV bench planes. 5 star rating based on previous experience with LV planes and the continued innovation demonstrated by this company.

Rockler's new Auto-Lock T-Track Clamps

Rockler's new Auto-Lock T-Track Clamps

09-18-2014 04:18 AM by timbertailor | 6 comments »

As some of you may already know, I recently built an assembly table (32” x 48”) using dual purpose track. I needed more clamps (who doesn’t?) to provide proper coverage of the large surface area and saw the new AutoLock T Track clamps in Rockler’s catalog. I watched a few product demonstration videos and decided to give them a try. What a great design. The large wheel makes tightening in position a breeze with plenty of leverage to hand tighten in position. Anoth...

Kreg's new AutoMaxx 6" Bench Klamps

Kreg's new AutoMaxx 6" Bench Klamps

09-18-2014 03:47 AM by timbertailor | 6 comments »

If you are already a proud owner of an assembly table with some type of extruded aluminium track solution, then keep reading. I recently decided to build an assembly table and was looking for some new clamps to accompany my table. I found a product presentation on YouTube and decided to give them a try. First, they are very powerful. The first thing I had to do once I had them installed on the table using a dual purpose track (1 3/4” x 1/2”) was to turn down the clamping for...

Woodworkingprofits.com website is bad. Really bad.

Woodworkingprofits.com website is bad. Really bad.

Yep, I got taken. Well, to be fair, I received what I paid for. Perhaps you’ve heard the siren-song of woodworkers showing how you can quit your day job and make $150K per year selling stuff you make in your shop. Well, against my better judgment, in a weak moment I paid the $37 for the book and plans download. If you didn’t have access to the internet and you’d never seen a woodworking forum, then MAYBE there may be some new ideas in here. If you’re a member of this f...

Magic Molder—A Safe and Professional Molder Head System

Magic Molder—A Safe and Professional Molder Head System

09-15-2014 03:46 AM by HillbillyShooter | 18 comments »

The Magic Molder System consists of a molder head and cutter plugs. Although not inexpensive, Magic Molder constitutes a truly safe and professional system for using your table saw (or radial arm saw if so inclined) as a shaper for cutting molding profiles. There are three primary features that make this system head and shoulders above the previous molder head I acquired 30 plus years ago—one I’ll humorously describe as a “cubby, Ninja star.” First, the Magic Molder is the safest des...

A few months ago I posted a review of some Kimberly-Clark Nitrile Gloves that I really liked. In the responses, several folks discussed their love of Harbor Freight nitrile gloves. I hardly ever go there, but today I needed to drop by and so I picked up some of these 5 mil gloves (they offer 3, 5, 7, and 9). I didn’t want them to be thin like the ones at the drug store (3) or as thick as some others I’d picked up (7), so I thought I would try the 5 mil model. In doing some pai...

Works well with some limitations

Works well with some limitations

After Dylan's review of this item as a Rockler sale item ($35 at the moment), I decided to pick one up b/c I thought I was close to buying a jointer off of Cralgslist. The Good:1) Pretty straightforward assembly and adjustability2) Rolls easily3) roll/stationary lever is pretty easy to use and definitely better than the Harborfreight style where one has to screw down the stationary supports when you don’t want it to roll. 4) Everything to assemble it is included The Not So Good:1...

This review is for the Aqua Coat clear grain filler. http://aquacoat.com/products/clear-grain-filler They also make a clear wood putty/filler I haven’t tried. Right now this stuff is $17.95 for a pint. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this stuff. I’m on my second can now. I’ve used it on several tables made from oak and walnut. After getting crud embedded in the grain after finishing one too many times I finally started using a grain filler. I picked t...
