Cool little shop accessory

Cool little shop accessory

1 day ago by Whiskers | 7 comments »

Well, I didn’t get flamed on my first review and yesterday I went to the HD to pick up a order and also picked up some rare earth magnets for this puppy. Than it occurred to me maybe some of you might like this as well. I bought it just under a year ago and I find it to be handy as heck. Don’t be fooled by it’s boast of being extra large, it is really quite small. Any smaller and it would be near useless, but it perfect for holding a couple pencils and pens, a 6” co...

Absolutely the Most Useful, Inexpensive Marking Tool...

Absolutely the Most Useful, Inexpensive Marking Tool...

69 days ago by DeLayne Peck | 14 comments »

What is it? Ordinary old sticks of school chalk. I use it constantly all over my shop and on project-after-project. Chalk cuts down the chaos, bungling, confusion, memory lapses, searching, waste and mistakes that haunt every shop. My shop for sure. Here are some of my routine uses: Noting the arrival dates of lumber for drying and acclimation. Planning and marking the intended use of and dimensions of new lumber. Laying out initial cuts and dimensions on sheet goods. Noting dimensi...

Outstanding chest hinges from Nathan's Forge

Outstanding chest hinges from Nathan's Forge

74 days ago by mpmitche | 3 comments »

I recently completed a six board chest and needed a nice set of hinges. Being disappointed with what I could find at the local retail outlets I looked around the internet and was pleased to find Nathan’s Forge. He customized the hinges to fit the 5/4 boards I used, delivered them quickly, and provide great looking matching screws for mounting. He even included a complete set of two lengths of screws. The detail of the hinges is great with the top edges chamfered nicely. The pair ma...

Great hinge for cedar chest

Great hinge for cedar chest

110 days ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I forgot to take a photo of this hinge installed in a cedar chest before I gave it to it’s intended recipient. This is a stock photo. This is a well engineered solution when you want a hinge that will hold the lid open and you want a soft close. It comes with directions for a 70 and 105 degree openings, but you can adjust for other size openings with trial and error or good math skills. I followed advice from the forum and used a piano hinge coupled with two of these. I had trim a...

Oh and the freight shipping was free and since out of state no tax!! I was also ordering a anvil, the manufacturer was back ordering the one I had purchased. I was uneasy about it t...

Old Masters Gel Polyurethane Finish

Old Masters Gel Polyurethane Finish

200 days ago by Purrmaster | 3 comments »

I got this stuff last summer and have used it on several projects since. Primarily on woods that are prone to blotching. I tried it after I read about it in a Bob Flexner book. I like it very much. It goes on and comes off with great ease. All you need to do is put some on a cloth and wipe it onto your wood. Wait a few minutes and then wipe off the excess. It will dry to the touch in a few hours. It’s not particularly smelly nor messy. It’s as easy to apply as boiled li...

No More Sucking Through a Straw

No More Sucking Through a Straw

232 days ago by HillbillyShooter | 16 comments »

This is a product I’ve been meaning to share for some time. I discovered it back in 2011 after I quit smoking and promptly developed some breathing problems. I tried various paper masks but always felt like I was trying to “suck air through a straw.” I looked at other, bulky masks but passed as being overly restrictive. Finally, I found the “Dust Bee Gone” mask and ordered one. My experience has been great with the breath ability through the material of the mask and the filtering quality...

"Professional" Woodworker Router Bit Set

"Professional" Woodworker Router Bit Set

344 days ago by rivox1 | 27 comments »

Hello Jocks, As a beginner woodworker I needed a set of router bits, but didn’t want to take on a second mortgage to be able to afford a premium set, so I decided to buy this bit set in order to try out different bits. My line of thinking was to see which ones I used the most so that I could buy one by one the most indispensable ones of a better quality. I picked up this set for a little over $100. It contains 75 pieces and at first glance looks really nice. On my daily vocabul...

Thanks for reading this review. I hope you’ll find useful informations and it will help you to make your choice.I’ve bought this saw used from a very kind guy in Ontario. I’ve taken the chance to buy it without beingable to do a test drive or even to see it. But I had a good feeling. And I was right.I am not sure if this exact model is still available in Canada but I’ve seen some clones under different brands. This saw is pretty amazing. Look at the specs:20” ...

Although this book has been mentioned a few times, I don’t know of a formal review here, so here goes: Volume I and II, “Patented Transitional & Metallic Planes in America” is an astounding body of research on the development of handplanes made since 1827. The research deals with planes from 1827 to 1927 in volume I and 1927 to the present in volume II. In it you will find data from the US Patent Office, as well as blueprints, logos, and advertising literature for th...
