Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

07-23-2008 09:35 PM by Tim_456 | 9 comments »

My review is of Oneida’s Dust Deputy. http://www.dustdeputy.com/ I’ve had this addition to my shop vac for a little over a year and it is performing very well. Order/Assembly:I ordered mine online directly from Oneida and it came, unassembled, in a very short amount of time. Ordering was fast and easy. Assembly was quick but did involve silicon sealant. This is placed between the lower canister and the upper cone to create an air tight seal between the parts. It took about 15 min...

LUBRICANT

LUBRICANT

My S.I.L. works at a chemical plant in Yazoo City Mississippi. They use a lubricant there caller kroil. The only place that I know of that it can be bought is direct from the factory which is KANO labs located in TN. I ordered some and believe it is twice as good as WD40. Check out the web site http://www.kanolabs.com. I believe that if you try it you too will be h

The Steussy 6" BowlSaw

The Steussy 6" BowlSaw

12-28-2008 06:56 AM by lew | 5 comments »

This is my first tool review at LumberJocks. I received this as a Christmas gift and couldn’t wait to try it out! The saw worked exactly as advertised. I have the 6” model and was able to create a daughter bowl blank that was 4” in diameter and just shy of 2” deep. (The 4” diameter is a little over the limit of this model- see next paragraph). The wood I was using was hard Maple. The most difficult part of the entire process was creating the “slot” in the “parent” bowl to al...

Pretty good so far

Pretty good so far

12-22-2009 08:03 PM by Rick | 7 comments »

I just bought a can of this at a rockler store. I think it was on sale for $14. I was finishing up a christmas present that I wanted to use wax on and I wanted the best for this one. I had read other review and everything seemed pretty positive about it. My experience wasn’t any different. It “seems” to work well and I’m not really sure how much protection it provides. I was hoping that it would dry harder than it does. It also doesn’t dry “instantly...

Horton Brasses = reputable service

Horton Brasses = reputable service

04-17-2009 10:25 PM by Don Newton | 11 comments »

Lumberjocks, Quite often our reviews are for hand tools or machines, and rightly so, but the crowning touch to many furniture building projects is hardware. I am a hobbyist who enjoys building period furniture. The hardware available at Horton Brasses is second to none, whether it is a pair of hinges or a set of Chippendale style pulls for a highboy, and their customer service department is the model that all company’s should aspire to. As a consumer with choices, who’s mone...

HTC 2000 Universal Mobile Base

HTC 2000 Universal Mobile Base

05-11-2010 07:53 PM by CryptKeeper | 7 comments »

I purchased 2 of these units one for my Jet 6” jointer and one for a Powermatic 2800 drill press. By the manufacture specs the 6” jointer weighs 237lbs and the drill press weights in at 209lbs. The HTC works well for both applications. However, I question the load rating of 500lbs on these units I don’t see it being able to support my table saw, that is spece’d at 456 lbs., long term. Pros:Instructions are easy to follow and assembly is straight foreword it took about 15 per unit. ...

Harbor Freight 60" Workbench

Harbor Freight 60" Workbench

03-21-2010 04:42 PM by JohnGreco | 11 comments »

I saw this workbench on sale from Harbor Freight and figured at the price of $159, it was worth a shot. Note- At the time of writing this, the bench is on sale further, costing just $129. For the price I paid, I think it was pretty good, but for the even lower sale price you can’t go wrong. The top is Oak, about 1” thick with a thicker edge (so the edge you see in the picture isn’t the thickness of the entire table). It comes with an end vise (mounted to the right, yo...

Spackling Compound

Spackling Compound

11-30-2010 10:44 PM by BigDaddyO | 5 comments »

I’m sure most of you have used Spackling compound before. I must have tried dozens over the years and have never been happy with any of them. Either they don’t stick to the wall well, or they shrink too much, or they dry so hard it makes sanding difficult, or they don’t smooth well. I was at my local paint store and needed some more spackle to repair a water damaged ceiling joist. I picked up the only thing they had. MH Ready Patch. When I got it home and opened it...
