Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

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...

Drill Press Planer

Drill Press Planer

08-09-2008 04:08 PM by dmann | 11 comments »

As much as I’de love an excuse to get another piece of equipment for the shop I don’t use a planer enough to justify the expense or space. I saw this Drill Press Planer at the Woodworker’s Supply and figured for the price I would give it a shot. I was able to plane my first pieces of wood this week. I was preparing a section of a 3×3x9 block of maple to create a laminated bowl blank. The Planer worked well for my purposes. I secured the planer in the chuck and adj...

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...

The Clifton Multiplane

The Clifton Multiplane

07-31-2008 09:36 PM by lethentymill | 5 comments »

A new Multiplane is quite an investment – when I started this series of projects five years ago I was still under the spell of this tool and Stanley still had a couple of cheaper alternatives which could be recommended for grooving and cutting dados.Five years on (running evening classes and producing the home learning course), how do I feel about them? The only successor to the Stanley/Record models that I knew was the Clifton – I have three old Stanleys and had one new Clifton; it was th...

I decided to write up this review after finding little or no information regarding their use and also their installation. Background I purchased the hinges from a Creative finishes for Hardware supplier located in Dungog N.S.W. Australia. Butler style hinges all appear to be in the ormanental catagory and are mostly brass or polished Stainless Steel.The profile is overall rectangular and the ends can be square edge or rounded. The hinges I used were solid brass polished to a high ...

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...

Hardwood Supplier: Forest Products Associates. Greenfield, MA

Hardwood Supplier: Forest Products Associates. Greenfield, MA

01-12-2011 05:48 AM by thiel | 9 comments »

NOTE:—Photos and Videos at the Bottom... scroll down!— Where I used to live, there was a so called “incredible” hardwood supplier who had a showroom of almost 800 square feet in which to display oak, cherry, poplar, and walnut. Occasionally, they’d get some additional “special” species. Oh, and EVERYTHING was S2S. Boy was I clueless! When I moved to my current town two years ago, I had a heckuva time locating a hardwood dealer. I searched on...

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...
