SE 10 High Speed Black Carbon Rasp Burr Wood Working Rotary

SE 10 High Speed Black Carbon Rasp Burr Wood Working Rotary

12-02-2012 05:48 PM by RussellAP | 1 comment »

These are very small, only about an inch or two. They can be used in a drill press or a cordless drill. These shaper rasps are really nice if you work with some free hand woodworking. They are great for matching up round surfaces, they don’t tear your work out either. Very good buy and as important as a good set of chisels. Strongly recommend especially at the price amazon has of under 10$. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00339ECVS/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

Inexpensive Remote

Inexpensive Remote

09-23-2012 02:24 AM 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...

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

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

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 ...

Sylvania Wireless Task Light- aka Flash Light ?

Sylvania Wireless Task Light- aka Flash Light ?

06-14-2012 04:23 PM by japanesewoodworker | 0 comments »

This is a Wireless Task Light that I found at my local Home Depot Store. This Task light is about 10” long and 0.5” in diameter. It is powered by 3 AAA batteries. The batteries are included. (Big spender !) The price is $10.95 plus state and local taxes. Here in the Peoples Republic of California Sales tax in 9.75% on this item. Why they call it a ”...wireless flash light…” I don’t know. Has anyone seen an extension cord for a flash light ? ...

UltraDeck Composite Decking material

UltraDeck Composite Decking material

04-27-2012 01:54 PM by richgreer | 5 comments »

I just completed building a deck that featured the UltraDeck composite decking material. This was my first experience with any composite decking material. In many regards, I was impressed. This is a solid, straight and true decking material. They claim it is maintenance free and I believe them. The hidden screw system works reasonably well and, once you figure it out, installation goes well. The second picture shows a close-up of the grooves in the sides of the boards. A T-s...

Lost Accuracy

Lost Accuracy

11-15-2011 05:13 PM 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, ...

Angle Checker

Angle Checker

09-20-2011 06:18 PM by Don W | 10 comments »

I bought this angle checker being I was ordering a bunch of other stuff from Woodcraft. I’ve seen these almost everywhere so I figured it would be handy to have at my sharpening bench. Bottom line, it just doesn’t work. When you slide a plane blade in (even a thick iron) it goes into the hole cut at the end so the angle of the blade really doesn’t register. You can pull it back some and “eye ball” it, but if your going to eye ball it, you might as well just use a...

KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop

KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop

09-13-2011 03:00 AM by Pie | 4 comments »

On my usual Thursday night grocery shopping at WalMart, I was looking through the tool aisle (never know what I may find) I (Ok my girlfriend did( saw this hanging by the tape measures> Hmmm for around $4 bucks I thought I would give it a try because my workbench needed a built in measuring tape. It took me 2 tries to get it on correctly. I was certain it would not stick after re taping 2x but it did. I had to cut it with a dremel since it is a metal backed tape. Definitely, worth it, just no...
