Ni-Cad Battery Rebuild

Ni-Cad Battery Rebuild

1171 days ago by C_PLUS_Woodworker | 14 comments »

One of the things that really gets to me with the current trend to Lith-Ion batteries is that so many perfectly good tools are being trashed because buying a new drill with a new charger and 2 new batteries is not much more money that just buying replacement batteries. I personally just cannot chuck a perfectly good tool because of a battery issue, regardless of the price differential on a new tool. It goes against everything I am and how I feel towards tools that have served me well. Ex...

Everything you need to know to build quality shop cabinets

Everything you need to know to build quality shop cabinets

1059 days ago by LeeInAZ | 8 comments »

If you are at all interested in building useful, sturdy, and practical cabinets for your shop, this is the best $13.45 you can spend. Tom takes you through the process of building shop cabinets using practical techniques and basic materials. Don’t expect exact dimensioned plans, but rather an explanation of the process you need to follow to design and build cabinets that will fit your work space and your tools. He has plenty of photos and details the entire process so well that even ...

Inexpensive Remote

Inexpensive Remote

670 days ago by TheDane | 22 comments »

After repeated problems with the remote control on my dust collector, I hit on a less costly and (so far) more reliable solution. One day I was walking through the electrical department at the local big box and saw these … they sell for $11.99. For that, you get the wireless switch that plugs into the service outlet like a wall wart and a remote control that can manage three of these devices. I bought 3 of them … use one on my air cleaner, one on my dust collector, and one o...

Fair priced little branding iron.

Fair priced little branding iron.

1084 days ago by mafe | 18 comments »

This is a UK seller but the price so fair that it might be worth buying even the shipment.And it comes in 220v and with an English power plug (I changed mine to a Danish plug). The burner plate with my Japanese inspired MaFe logo.You will need to make your own artwork and send it to the seller in the right file formats, no premade templates here so if you don’t know how to do this or have some one that can help you this is not the right product. Finally I got my branding iron!Do I need ...

1-2-3 Block. 123 uses around the shop

1-2-3 Block. 123 uses around the shop

1223 days ago by Tedstor | 24 comments »

Want a cheap way to check the “squareness” of machine fences, table saw blades, drill press chucks, and any other 90# angle in the shop?? Check out this set of 1-2-3 blocks. I bought this pair off Amazon for $10ish bucks several months ago. Several different types of these blocks are available from different manufacturers at widely varying price points. This model, was the cheapest. However, I can’t seem to find any flaws despite the low price. I’m sure the expensive ...

Great Idea For Sandpaper Storage

Great Idea For Sandpaper Storage

1622 days ago by Greg The Cajun Box Sculptor | 18 comments »

Sandpaper is always a pain to store and organize. I previously had built a bulky and definitely not portable storage rack for my sandpaper. I saw this plastic file folder yesteday while in office Depot and a flourescent light bulb went off…but that’s a different story. For $10 this was a perfect solution for storing my sandpaper and making it easy to carry around to wherever I needed sandpaper. I addition to the 9×11” sheets I bought it for I can also put round orbital ...

A Museum of early American toolsby: Eric Sloane Again a book I was recommended, this time by our fellow LJ littlecope who got his from his father. It is a book of illustrations with short texts that explains the tools and their use.For those of us that are curious about old traditional hand tools, this book is a pearl, not only does it show us the tools and tell us the story, but it is also so beautifully illustrated that you can enjoy it as a art piece. I do not have a lot of wo...

Yes, you can buy an economical veneer hammer at the hardware store.

Yes, you can buy an economical veneer hammer at the hardware store.

719 days ago by shipwright | 18 comments »

I’ve posted two home made veneer hammers in the past as projects. This one comes right off the shelf and it works better than either of my previous attempts. The only modification needed to transform it from the Clarke Kent of the paint scraper world to the Superman of the affordable, available veneer hammer world is that you need to spend a few moments at the bench grinder dulling it down and smoothing the edge. The main requirements of a good veneer hammer: 1) It must allow you ...
