Sylvania Wireless Task Light- aka Flash Light ?

796 days ago 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

844 days ago 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

1008 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, ...

Angle Checker

Angle Checker

1064 days ago 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

1072 days ago 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...
