Dynaglo 50K-200K LP/Propane Heater

Dynaglo 50K-200K LP/Propane Heater

01-20-2016 05:31 AM by athomas5009 | 6 comments »

This is only an initial review because I’ve only had this heater for a week now and have used it 2x’s. I got it for $60 new in box off CL but reg price is 130$ at BORG. I used to have a 15K tank top LP Radiant heater which was nice when close by and a 50K-80K kerosene salamander that worked well but smelled and was LOUD!!! First off let me tell you for the same price as a decent NEW kero salamander you can get this bad lad that is at least 2-4x stronger and quite a bit quieter....

Ceiling Shop Lights

Ceiling Shop Lights

I’ve been picking a few of these up from Rural King for the past few months, because they were originally 40 bux, and they’ll be on sale until the 23rd of this month, Jan, 2016, for 20bux. A “few” amounts to 24, which is a bunch o greenbacks, but, like I said, I’ve been getting them a little at a time. Anyhoo, I know these pictures will not do justice of how fricking bright these units are. While in the store, Rural King, they had them on an endcap with 2 of t...

Drillnado Drill Press Dust Collection with one problem

Drillnado Drill Press Dust Collection with one problem

04-29-2015 02:43 PM by DW833 | 12 comments »

I purchased this product at the Tampa woodworking show. The inventor was at the show and demoed the dust collection. I thought that the dust collection setup had a small footprint. I’ve tried other methods that just got in the way at the DP. The cost was $39. Included the quill for attaching to the DP, two housings and additional fittings to secure the quill. At the show, a second housing was provided with the purchase. I’m not sure if that is the case with every purchase...

An amazing help experience

An amazing help experience

03-28-2015 06:35 PM by andy_P | 2 comments »

This is probably not necessary because I am sure you more experienced and knowledgeable woodworkers have run across this site already. I had a problem with a keyless entry lock that I had purchased from ACE but was unable to find the “Helpful Hardware Man” when I ran into problems setting up the codes. The instructions were written in broken Chinese and even my wife, who knows all, wasn’t able to figure it out. Since the “Helpful Hardware Man” was unable to ...

The Ultra Carver......Two Thumbs Up.

The Ultra Carver......Two Thumbs Up.

03-06-2015 09:41 PM by thechipcarver | 9 comments »

This is my first review so bare with me. I found the Ultra Carver two weeks ago while searching for some power carvers. Here is the wesite: www.ultracarver.comI have read so many articles and website about power carvers it is unreal. What I have found is that you can go small (30,000 rpm) or go big (300,000+ rpm). Until now…..(I know, I sound like an infomercail) Let put a scale, 1 through 5. 5 being the best while 1 being, you got it, I wouldn’t give it to my worst en...

I saw so much talk in the furniture forum for this book I had to get it. The book arrived Saturday and I immediately began reading it. I had heard that this was a book you have to read while in the shop working on layout. This is true. But because I have yet to get some dividers (hint: buy some dividers because they are the backbone of the whole theory of the book) I read it with a glass of brandy in my chair. I finished it Sunday and turned back to page one to begin again. Basic book geek...

Turning Basics class at Woodcraft

Turning Basics class at Woodcraft

03-02-2015 01:28 AM by DW833 | 2 comments »

I took this class at Woodcraft of Orlando this week. Cost is $105.It is taught by Mark Behrens and runs from 10am – 5pm. I started turning recently and had no idea how to use the tools. I find it difficult to transfer skills I see onlineand dvds for turning to real workshop turning. So I wanted to attend a hands on training class.With few other options for local training, I decided to try this class.Attended a beginning woodworking class at a different woodcraft years ago and foun...

Smooth wood handles? Hands slipping? Non-Slip Grip Tape

Smooth wood handles? Hands slipping? Non-Slip Grip Tape

12-20-2014 04:44 PM by JoeinGa | 14 comments »

As I age, I find my grip just isn’t as strong as it used to be. Simply opening a pickle jar is sometimes a pain and this carries over into my shop as well, especially during the colder weather. Several years ago I had several glue-ups fail while making cutting boards and upon close inspection I realized it was because the clamps could have been tighter during the gluing process. I had also noticed that sometimes my hands would slip on the smooth wooden handles of my Jorgy clamps. N...

Project EVS Vacuum pump

Project EVS Vacuum pump

11-28-2014 03:04 AM by iminmyshop | 5 comments »

There are many different kinds of vacuum presses. Wading through which you need can be daunting. Buying a vacuum system can also be costly. I went with the EVS Project at http://www.veneersupplies.com/pages/DIY__Vacuum__Press.html. These pumps require putting some parts together and some very simple wiring. I had never done this sort of thing. I’m a woodworker, not an electrician and had no idea what a manifold was. But everything I read about the company from its customers was very po...
