Flush Cutting Inside a Curved Seat Blank

Flush Cutting Inside a Curved Seat Blank

493 days ago by DustyMark | 8 comments »

Check out this short video review of the Stanley Fat Max 20-331 Flush-Cut Saw. I noticed this saw during a recent trip to Woodcraft and purchased it in hopes that it could cut 1” through leg tenons on the inside face of a curved seat blank. It worked quite well. The blade has enough flex to follow the gentle curve of the seat blank without leave any marks on surface of the blank. The teeth are quite sharp and cut through the ash leg tenons with minimal effort. I’m not sure ...

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

1606 days ago by Andrew | 6 comments »

This is my first good plane, in fact it cost more than my 3 other planes all together. I needed a plane that could get into corners, and trim along edges. I wanted to get the 92 it had a 3/4” width as opposed to the 93 with a 1” width, but the 92 was on back order until mid april. My needs are my needs so here goes the 93. It took only a couple of minutes to flatten the back of the iron and hone the edge. The bottom seems pretty flat. After a couple minutes of set up and ad...

Remote Control Switch

Remote Control Switch

873 days ago by dustyal | 6 comments »

I paid $21 for this Stanley Remote Control Power Hub. I rated it 4 stars because the remote sender has a four position channel selector while the receiver outlet head is preset at the factory to a channel number label on the back of the unit. So, you can only set for one channel. Having said that it does not interfere with my Lone Ranger III unit. It is rated at 15 amp and 1875 watts. That is sufficient to run my vacs at least. It says it will broadcast up to 100 feet… I tested ...

Stanley Flatbase Spokeshave

Stanley Flatbase Spokeshave

425 days ago by Nugs | 5 comments »

One of my first woodworking projects was carving a canoe paddle, I didn’t want to spend too much on tools because I wasn’t sure if I would like the hobby. I picked up this spokeshave on Amazon for a reasonable price of $20. I’ve had a lot of problems with it but with some small modifications it was a pretty usable tool. My first issue was with it jamming up, no matter how thin I would set it, the shavings would jam it and I would have to take it apart to unclog it. My sol...

A Good Deal, If You Know What You're Getting

A Good Deal, If You Know What You're Getting

333 days ago by GeBeWubya | 5 comments »

Note: This review is an elaboration on my review at Amazon.com I am pleased with this plane. After lapping and honing, it did a good job cutting both long grain and cross grain rabbets. This is a shoulder plane (Iron goes all the way to the edge of the body) with a depth stop, fence, and side nicker (to cut across the end grain when planing across the grain). It also has 2 frogs to mount the iron, one normal near the center of the sole, and a second near the front of the plane for u...

Fantastic Storage Chest -- Saves Me LOTS of Time

Fantastic Storage Chest -- Saves Me LOTS of Time

2336 days ago by Hawgnutz | 4 comments »

Boy, where was this years ago?!? I would give it 6 stars if I could! It is deep enough to hold my cordless drill, circular saw, pneumatic nailers, tool bags, planes, nails, screws, spare batterys and still have room for a little more. (It holds LOTS of tools!) Plus it has a wheel that allows me to move it from garage to pickup to site. Now, when I have a large project that will take a couple of days, I can store all my tools in one place until I complete that job! Woo Hoo! The top ha...

A laser level for woodworking and more

A laser level for woodworking and more

1127 days ago by devann | 4 comments »

This is a review for one of my favorite levels that I use for some of my woodworking endeavors. I have many levels. I own about every type level made except for a Libella and I’ve been wanting to build a few of those to sell to some friends for their offices but haven’t gotten around to it. This level is the Stanley model 77-153 cross line level. It is an indoor use level that I find quite handy for cabinet setting, interior trim, general layout, and even tool setup in the shop so...
