HTC 2000 - 3000 Mobile Bases

HTC 2000 - 3000 Mobile Bases

11-26-2009 04:46 AM by ND2ELK | 10 comments »

Both the HTC 2000 – 3000 mobile bases are very will built. They seem to be strong and have no flexing or sagging under weight. The machines are solid when sitting on the levelers. Moving of the machines are very easy when the swivel casters are engaged. Because the frames are adjusted in 1” increments I shimmed them with wood strips so the machines would not move in the frames. I would recommend these for your shop and am pleased with them.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

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...

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...
