Pretty much what I was looking for.

Pretty much what I was looking for.

I wanted to add a foot switch to a scroll saw I just bought. The pedal types seemed better suited to a sitting position (I was thinking sewing machine). I will be standing so I looked for a low profile that had the pivot at the top. I ordered this one ($16.84) and received it yesterday. It’s available in three configurations: switch w/6ft pigtail; switch w/6ft cord and piggyback 15amp/120v plug; switch alone. I ordered the last option because I wanted a little bit longer cord and ...

Custom made sanding belts for the band saw

Custom made sanding belts for the band saw

02-28-2013 07:51 PM by PatrickB | 4 comments »

I ordered these a week ago and love them. You can order them any length with many widths to choose from. I ordered 3 ea. in 1/4”, 3/8”, & 1/2” in varying grits and they are the cats meow. The only down side was it took a while for them to arrive, about two weeks. Remove the bearing guides and set the tension and away you go. I’ve used them on end grain, curves, tight areas, they fit just about any where. The main thing is have one of those sanding belt belt cleaner...

1, 2, and 3 inch sanding discs

1, 2, and 3 inch sanding discs

01-29-2013 08:47 PM by RussellAP | 3 comments »

I heard about these here on another post and decided to order some. I cut my own paper and it sticks well however it wears out fast due to the small area. If you press too hard for too long you’ll heat the pad up and the foam will melt. A bit of CA glue will fix it. The sponges under the abrasive are great for hard to get to places that require intense sanding that you couldn’t do with any other tool. I use it on my turnings to get even sanding along the curves and to avo...

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...
