Doesn't Ding Like Cast Iron

Doesn't Ding Like Cast Iron

11-05-2014 08:50 PM by OSU55 | 2 comments »

I have the HF 34706 lathe (review here: http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/3720). The tool rest that comes with the lathe is serviceable to get started but became a pita. Mine wasn’t quite level, about an 1/8” difference over its length, and the soft cast iron would ding very easily. The fit of the arm and rest posts into the respective holes were the primary culprit for the misalignment. With the rest mounted directly in the saddle the misalignment was worse due to tapering at the b...

My first review! - Woodcraft preformed sanding pads in multiple profies

10-03-2014 12:59 AM by rblank | 2 comments »

This is my first review of anything…ever, so please bear with me. I was refinishing my front door and needed some way to get the three layers of old paint out of all the small, hard to reach places and profiles. “Why not just repaint the door” you’re probably asking yourself? Well it all started with an overly rambunctious teenager driving me nuts one Saturday morning, so for his punishment I told him to scrape all the old paint off the door I have intended to repai...

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 ...

Non Stick Pen Bushings for CA Finishing

Non Stick Pen Bushings for CA Finishing

10-10-2013 02:19 AM by Dick | 1 comment »

Just got these in today and they are awesome! Now I can finish pen sleeves on the lathe and never get glue on the actual metal bushings. You don’t have to worry about damaging the finish when separating the part from the bushing if they get stuck. I’m sure some of you have figured out other alternatives. But, for 7 bucks, these things are well worth the money and turned out to make this process much easier and time efficient. http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2084563/43430/Hold...

Excellent customer support for a lost package

Excellent customer support for a lost package

08-07-2012 10:11 PM by bobasaurus | 6 comments »

I ordered a few lathe tools from Woodcraft during their last sale, and was excited when I checked the tracking number at work and the box had been delivered. But then I got home and the package was nowhere to be seen. It either got lost or stolen, and it was pretty frustrating… never happened to me before at my house, and I’ve ordered tons of packages. I didn’t hold out much hope to get my items or money back, but I tried emailing Woodcraft’s customer service anyway...

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...

easy and effective way to clean saw blades

easy and effective way to clean saw blades

05-11-2012 01:17 AM by Mainiac Matt | 10 comments »

I’ve used the foamy stuff in the brown spray cans (see my second picture) both at home and at work and it’s horrible…. toxic smell, harsh on your skin, spatters, puts a caustic mist in the air, and supposedly eats away at the brazing that attaches the carbide tips to the saw blade. I used it a month ago to clean some burned router bits at work and a coworker accross the room started coughing and had to step outside to get some air. I also had some of it spatter into my mo...

Like many ljs I have a dust collector and ambient air cleaners in my shop. Although they do a good job keeping my shop clean, while working with cedar I still found myself coughing at night.I smoked for years and still work as an auto dealer tech so I think my lungs are holding a grudge!I bought this mask 11-2011 and have used it many hours. It’s comfortable to wear, has a strap that goes over my head to support it’s weight and the same strap slides thru the mask and buckles behin...
