JacPac CO2 Compressor - Very Good

JacPac CO2 Compressor - Very Good

1963 days ago by CharlieD | 13 comments »

Recently, I bought the JacPac CO2 portable compressor product and it sat in my shop for a couple of months before I used it. I like it a lot and will use it a lot… going forward. It is very handy when you have to do work outside a location where you have a compressor or one with no electricity. I took it to a house where I needed to finish up a small job. I took my Bostitch 15 gauge angle nailer and 18 gauge PC. I took the 18 guage because I thought it might not drive the 2 inch ...

The Soul of a Tree: A Master Woodworker's Reflections

The Soul of a Tree: A Master Woodworker's Reflections

1875 days ago by Durnik150 | 3 comments »

Author: George Nakashima$31.68 as of this writing at Amazon Given the price of this book I feel strongly that you should know that this is not a woodcrafting book with plans and designs. This book, written by Nakashima himself, is a great overview of a great career and a wonderful talent. The first half of the book is especially enlightening. It is a short biography of Nakashima’s early years and shows how these experiences directly influenced his works. When I first saw the book I t...

Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Raymond Levy

Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Raymond Levy

1741 days ago by Sivers | 8 comments »

I thought this book was really neat. I love mechanical “things”. All the models in this are meant to be demonstrative of basic mechanical devices that make up the larger machines that are all around us. Cam Follower, Couplings, Scotch Yoke etc…. I am hoping my finished models will be “desk worthy” as I am an engineer and the others in my office would get a kick out of this. I have built a simple one and am partially through one of the more challenging ones. Th...

IGAGING digital angle cube

IGAGING digital angle cube

1677 days ago by cliffton | 8 comments »

I bought this from Rockler about a week ago, it was on sale for 10$ cheaper than the wixey, so i figured why not, if it sucks i can return it. So far I have to say this thing rocks.Pros:-has really strong magnets in it, wont slip at all off of a highly polished blade.-cheaper than wixey-has hold button for odd position angles-numbers auto flip when you turn it upside down to make it easier to read-takes a 9v battery-has magnets on 3 sides ( i dont know if the wixey does)-has machined metal b...

Lost Accuracy

Lost Accuracy

1012 days ago by woodworksbyjohn | 20 comments »

I received this as a present last Christmas and thought things were good with it until now! I had my tablesaw blade set for some angled cuts and just re-squared the blade with the Angle Cube. I ripped pieces to make 8 cabinet doors and when I brought them to the shaper noticed they didn’t sit squarely on the fence! A try square showed them to be off by about 5-6 degrees. I double checked the tablesaw with the angle cube but according to it was right on. Hand planed a piece square, ...

Infiniter Laser guide

This is an aftermarket laser guide that replaces the outer washer on your arbor. The packaging says that it will fit an arbor that is 7/16×5/8. the package says that it will not fit these 12” miter saws, Ridgid, pro-tech, makita ls1221, dewalt dw705s produced before 2005. It will not fit these circle saws: Porter cable quick-change , all worm drives and skil. I just put this on my GMC 10 inch sliding compound miter and i have to say it works pretty good. the laser is turned ...

The Workbench Design BookBy: Christopher Schwartz ISBN-10: 1558708405 ISBN-13: 978-1558708402 This book is really a landmark in workbench books for me. The workbench design book is a book that takes you on a tour in workbenches; we get a little historical insight, some geographical insight and the chance to see what workbenches some of the top guides of the trade are using. My personal favorite are with no doubt the 21st-century Workbench, this bench is so rock solid and well tho...

Making & Mastering Wood Planes: Revised EditionBy: David Finck ISBN-10: 140272022X ISBN-13: 978-1402720222 This book is a must if you want to build wooden planes in the James Krenov style, and trust me this you want to try; I wish I had the book when I made my first hand plane.There is so much info on the web that we can live without the book and still build hand planes, but if you have the money for the book this it will save you for all the searching and you will be guided throug...
