Do not have high expectations!

Do not have high expectations!

I bought it, I guess it works but I am not happy with it. I still would rather “freehand” my blades! What do I expect for 13 bucks? Call me picky if ya want. When sharpening, I expect nothing less than perfection! And this little unit is far from it!

new clamp purchase

new clamp purchase

06-20-2010 06:32 PM by woodsmithshop | 16 comments »

I just purchased six of the Woodcraft clamping system clamps, they were on sale, plus if you bought $100 or more the shipping was free, I have been having trouble keeping any panels flat on glue ups, this system does a great job, though not totally perfect, you can get near and sometimes perfect if you are careful, and your 2×2 are made very square. you must plan ahead carefully when doing a glue up, otherwise it can be awkward trying to get your boards aligned, it is best to not add th...

Review of the Woodcraft Anti Kickback Safety Rollers

Review of the Woodcraft Anti Kickback Safety Rollers

02-11-2014 01:33 PM by steve_in_ohio | 16 comments »

I bought these rollers a couple of days ago because my table saw is old and it doesn’t have a riving knife and I don’t like to use the blade guard. Also I had problems when running long boards thru the table saw that they would try to move away from the fence, so I bought these rollers. I mounted these on my fence with a t-track instead of the rail that it is sold for these. After some simple assembly I started using these and I love them. They hold the wood down to the table and ...

Woodcraft Dust Collector Remote Control

Woodcraft Dust Collector Remote Control

07-15-2011 05:47 AM by newTim | 14 comments »

I’ve seen these things in the local Woodcraft for many months and finally bought one when it recently went on sale. Many folks have been ‘hotrod-ding’ their dust collectors, especially the Harbor Freight. I’m happy to report this is working great. Just plug it in to the wall and plug the collector in to it. The HF is supposed to be a 2HP motor, but it is still 110V, so I was reluctant to buy this thinking it would be overpowered. Not true. I wish I had bought thi...

Hi, I thought I would post this as there may be some others that have not tried using scrapers. Oh man if I only hand the hours back spent on sanding. My wife been bugging me for a bedroom mirror and since I been buying tools lately I figured that her project better move up on the list. I had some hard maple left over. I ran the frame material through the table saw on an angle to make a cove—-I had done that several times before and it takes alot of sanding and making special b...

Yardstick style measuring compass

Yardstick style measuring compass

09-05-2009 06:26 PM by Bob #2 | 12 comments »

I saw this item during a small ordering spree with woodcraft and added it to my order givng it little thought as it was quite simple and what could go wrong? First thing is it was back ordered and shipped separately at a later date.That would be fine if I had been advised but there was nothing mentioned on the invoice so I assumed it had been overlooked and proceeded to buy another one locally ( different style but same application.) When this one arrived I at first tried it on the y...

Woodcraft the best Customer Service and support for Wood River Planes

Woodcraft the best Customer Service and support for Wood River Planes

06-20-2012 11:28 AM by bloqbeta | 12 comments »

I bought my first plane, a Wood River No. 4 Plane and had it shipped to my sister in Florida, who brought it down to Guatemala where I live, that took almost 2 months. I received it yesterday and prepared it for the bench, cleaned all the gunk, honed the blade perfectly, razor sharp with an imperceptible camber. Grabbed a beautiful plank of highly figured mahogany and started planing the face of the board, and to my surprise, it left a very deep indentation. They were not plane track but...

Open Up a New World on Woodworking

Open Up a New World on Woodworking

07-08-2008 09:12 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 11 comments »

I took a sharpening class at the Birmingham Woodcraft store a while back. I really didn’t know it then, but that class really has opened up my woodworking world. My projects are getting more involved and really more fun because I now have very sharp tools. If you have never had a sharpening class, you should make it your priority. I would have gotten into the woodturning world and stayed there about 10 minutes without sharp tools. Plane irons and chisels just about cut through ...

Nice Tenoning jig, but....

Nice Tenoning jig, but....

10-28-2009 05:22 AM by drfixit | 11 comments »

I had to modify it, by drilling new holes for the miter bar to use it on my Ridgid TS3612 saw. It has 2 sets of holes in it, but one set put it on top of my blade and the other set put it too far away. It was very easy to assemble other than this but after assembling it and adjusting it. It has 3 adjustable screws to fit your miter slot. It can be used for any angled tenon from 0 to 45 degrees. Wish I had bought one sooner.
