Poor Communication

Poor Communication

04-27-2012 12:07 PM by Bertha | 30 comments »

I ordered two woodscrews and two garters on April 3, 2012 for $320.00. I sent a total of 8 messages to check on the status of my order. I said, “I’m not asking for the World, just a bit of communication” (both on the site form and via e-mail). Without a single word, my payment was refunded on April 25, 2012. The credit hasn’t posted yet but I have every reason to believe it will. The right thing to do would have been to simply tell me he couldn’t fill the order. ...

"Professional" Woodworker Router Bit Set

"Professional" Woodworker Router Bit Set

05-08-2013 05:02 AM 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...

mail order hardwood lumber

mail order hardwood lumber

07-17-2009 06:35 PM by KDL | 25 comments »

This is a wood source review. I was impressed enough with the vendor to want to post. They are knowledgeable and personable. I’m building cabinets and wanted quartersawn/rift cherry for the door rails and stiles. My local supplier doesn’t separate cherry into rift and quartered, so I went to the Internet and found http://www.dunham-hardwoods.com. Marty, the gentleman I dealt with, understood what I wanted, was able to find the material, hit-or-miss plane it, cut it to a shi...

Must-Have Books for Plane Collectors!!!

Must-Have Books for Plane Collectors!!!

02-23-2013 05:09 PM by poopiekat | 20 comments »

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...

Made the switch

Made the switch

04-02-2009 06:43 AM by bayspt | 18 comments »

After using almost a whole tub (1lb) of SC Johnson paste wax in the last year or so, I caught Renaissance wax on sale at Woodcraft this month and reluctantly bought a can. I say reluctantly since the street price of this stuff is 26 bucks for 200ml or 7 fl. OZ. Little can for 26 or big ole pounder for 8. Ability to buy at Borg or local department store (blue, biggest in the world) or have to buy at specialty shops or order online. You can see my apprehension. But after the rave reviews b...

I love this blade!

I love this blade!

06-23-2009 04:12 AM by teenagewoodworker | 18 comments »

In my shop i like things to match. bookmatched especially. and one of my favorite things in the world is projects from all one slab of wood. so naturally i do ALOT a resawing. so for that i need a good resaw blade. This blade really fulfills my need too! I have a 14” bandsaw with the riser block so for resawing i got for the 105” 3 tpi by 3/4” blade. these blades have hook teeth which is very aggressive but also leaves a pretty nice finish. not glue ready by any means but go...

best deal for a remote dust collector switch

best deal for a remote dust collector switch

03-09-2011 02:39 AM by drewnahant | 17 comments »

I was going to buy a longranger for my dust collector, but I decided to look around for alternatives, and I found this. four outlet switches with two remotes for half the price of a single longranger, how could I go wrong? The two big green outlets are rated for 15 Amps, and the two white ones are only rated for 10 Amps. my 1hp dust collector is rated at 6 Amps, so I tried one of white ones, and the startup surge popped an internal fuse, I shorted the fuse, and it works fine, doesnt seem t...

Wonderful Hand Made Bowsaw available from Ebay Stores

Wonderful Hand Made Bowsaw available from Ebay Stores

03-17-2011 03:09 PM by Bertha | 16 comments »

About a week ago, a fellow Lumberjock (Loren) directed me to a handmade bowsaw available on Ebay Stores. http://myworld.ebay.com/cmehandworksinc I ordered the 14” maple variety for $62.00 including shipping, which I thought was quite reasonable. It arrived well-package, disassembled in a long shipping tube, and came with detailed re-assembly instructions. I found the unfinished bow to be of excellent craftsmanship and the pieces fit with high tolerance. It is an ...

No More Sucking Through a Straw

No More Sucking Through a Straw

08-27-2013 10:08 PM 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...
