Simpson StrongTies

2149 days ago by Tim_456 | 9 comments »

This isn’t really a woodworking tool however I’ve never seem them referenced in any magazines or online so I thought I’d toss it up here. If you’re not familiar with these go to your local big box store. Simpson Strongties are metal connectors in various shapes. Mainly used in the building trades a few of these connectors can be used to make shelves and even workbenches. Anyway, they’re a bit pricey but they make a quick work of building shelves and benches...

If you sell, you should really take a look at this book

If you sell, you should really take a look at this book

1852 days ago by Durnik150 | 6 comments »

I have accrued a lot of woodworking books over the last 3 years or so and avidly read as much as I can about my favorite hobby. I occasionally sell some pieces so got hold of this book. This book is available at Amazon for $15.63 as of this writing. The author is Dan Ramsay. First off, not everyone needs this book. If you enjoy woodworking for the relaxation, the craft, or as gifts, you don’t need this book. If you are actually trying to make a profit or are seriously considering ...

The Best Mobile Base I Could Find

The Best Mobile Base I Could Find

1563 days ago by Twigger | 10 comments »

I looked everywhere on-line and elsewhere for a mobile base for my Jet ProShop table saw. This one from woodworker.com works great: heavy duty; leveling devices; easy to actuate the casters. Yes, you do have to provide the 3/4” plywood; but you get a very handy shelf under your table saw or whatever. And it’s easy to assemble. $72.99 Everything the web site says is true:Combine the Universal Mobile Base Kit with your 3/4” plywood and you can easily build a movable b...

Sand Devil

Sand Devil

1359 days ago by bluejazz | 5 comments »

I hate sanding. Among woodworkers of course, that about is as unique an impression as ‘Hitler was a bad guy’. This tool truly does make sanding easier. First off, cutting sandpaper and getting it into my 3M sanding block was a major pain. I’m sure there are better choices than 3M in sanding blocks and making your own is an option. But this Sand Devil has been a huge improvement for me. First off even with my Sandpaper cutting jig, cutting to size is burdensome if ...

Everything one needs to know is in this book.

Everything one needs to know is in this book.

After I built myself a table with no woodworking knowledge of any kind, I was fiendish to know more. I bought this book, and the course of my life changed. This book starts with the basics of how trees grow, progresses to glue types, methods of work, joinery, and all sorts of other details. Though dry at times, all the information is there. Since it was published in 1970, some of the info about woodworking machinery is out of date. The benefit of this is there is a huge attention on han...

Review of The Anarchist’s Tool ChestBy: Christopher Schwarz I have just re written the review slightly since I after reading it again could see that I could be read wrong in some passages, that they could be read like ‘personal’, I belive what is left now is not more personal than Schwarz’s choose to put us inside in his book. I never meant to harm Schwarz’s I try to review a book.(I posted a mark in the comments so you can se where the old and new comments is). Before I sta...

K-Grip Siphon Spray Gun aka Critter Spray Gun

K-Grip Siphon Spray Gun aka Critter Spray Gun

2051 days ago by Matt (Upper Cut) | 11 comments »

This is a review of the following http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=17858&filter=critter%20spray I have had this for a while, and it was $40 when I bought it, it’s $50 now. I primarily use this for spraying interior latex paint on furniture. This gun has a bad rep, but I like it. Yes, it makes a cloud—wear lung protection. I mix the paint with water, pop it on the compressor, set it to 40psi (I have a little pancake compressor) and spray small projects. I ...
