Great Idea For Sandpaper Storage

Great Idea For Sandpaper Storage

02-14-2010 12:02 AM by Greg..the Cajun Box Sculptor | 18 comments »

Sandpaper is always a pain to store and organize. I previously had built a bulky and definitely not portable storage rack for my sandpaper. I saw this plastic file folder yesteday while in office Depot and a flourescent light bulb went off…but that’s a different story. For $10 this was a perfect solution for storing my sandpaper and making it easy to carry around to wherever I needed sandpaper. I addition to the 9×11” sheets I bought it for I can also put round orbital ...

Infiniter Laser guide

Infiniter Laser guide

01-19-2010 02:34 AM by cliffton | 5 comments »

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 ...

IGAGING digital angle cube

IGAGING digital angle cube

01-19-2010 02:11 AM 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...

Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Raymond Levy

Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Raymond Levy

11-16-2009 07:26 PM 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...

Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

10-24-2009 06:14 AM by Daniel Dugan | 3 comments »

I was considering building/installing 2×4 sandwiched in 1×4 shelving for wood storage (featured in FWW #181) when I encountered this system on Lee Valley website. Time is precious to me and I would rather build furniture than wood racks, so I decided I would give this a try. I ordered the 4’ standards, fast mount brackets and the connectors as well as 10” and 14” shelf brackets. I installed three eight foot sections tonight in about an hour. The fast mount brack...

Trend T4 Plunge Router

Trend T4 Plunge Router

07-21-2009 01:57 AM by tenontim | 12 comments »

I bought one of these routers about 10 months ago. It’s the first and only plunge router that I own, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. I guess the thing that I like the most is the size to power ratio. I think it’s listed at about 8 lbs and puts out just over 1 HP. It’s very well made and easy to operate, with it’s variable speed motor and smooth plunge mechanism. It has a plunge stop with 3 different settings. Comes with a very nice oversize guide, ...

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

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

07-05-2009 09:17 AM 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...
