Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

1040 days ago by NiteWalker | 7 comments »

I bought one of these bushing sets way back before woodcraft rebranded all their in house products as woodriver. That set has performed flawlessly over the years. A few things I love about the set is the variety of included sizes, the fact that they’re brass and won’t work loose as easily as steel bushings can, and that all the rims of the guides protrude less than 1/4” so 1/4” template material can be used. I recently bought another set because they’re on ...

Close Enough for Woodworking

Close Enough for Woodworking

1013 days ago by DylanC | 7 comments »

I picked this up at a local Woodcraft (Item #148454) for ~$32. Got it mostly to speed up set-ups on the router and table saw. As soon as I got it, I measured each block with my digital caliper. Each block measured within half a thousandth of spec, except for the 1/2” and the 1-2-3 block. The half inch block measures 0.502” by 0.506” and the 3” side of the 1-2-3 measures a few thousandths over, also. Maybe that’s too much for high precision machining, but it&...

Only reason not 5 stars - not made out of gold and diamonds

Only reason not 5 stars - not made out of gold and diamonds

But then who the hell would use it, the Queen of England? Got this on sale at Woodcraft, it’s a fine tool. 4.5 stars, easy. Good - Doesn’t roll off the table because the brass tightener stops it like a kickstand. That’s a big plus. Even the ones with a flat edge can still roll if there’s enough momentum. The only way this thing will hit the ground is if you fling it off with something by accident. Really like the addition of the wood, makes it a lot more comfortable...

Very nice little plane

Very nice little plane

I got this Block Plane for Christmas and just now finally got around to cleaning the grease off of it, waxing the sole, and sharpening the blade. The blade adjuster seems to work fine and the adjustable mouth is very nice. Fit and finish are excellent. I use a worksharp 3000 for most of my sharpening (especially when its cold) and I ran right through the grits (80, 220, 400, 1000, 3600) in just about 5 minutes, then dropped a 30 degree micro-bevel on the end. I was pulling full widt...

I had to spray some General Finshes Enduro-Var water base poly. Not really poly as it is water based. After thining with about 15 percent water and a couple healthy squirts of General Finishes dry time extender I got the results I needed. A smooth flat top coat. After drying I used Micro-mesh sanding pads. 1500 to 12000 grit.I still need to get some 1 micron polish from Micro-mesh to get that extra eye popping mirror like finish.29 gal Harbor Freight commpressor 7.3 cfm at 40 psi and 5.9 at 9...

Great blades at a great price

Great blades at a great price

I build a lot of handplanes and when I was looking for an inexpensive high quality blade set I.came across there blades. Woodcraft’s house brand, they offer blades for the #3 (153917 $15.99), #4&5 (153918 $16.98) and the #6/7 (153919 $20.99). After using the V3 handplanes extensively, I was familiar with how well the blades preformed. They are ground at 25 degrees and require honing out of the packaging but the hold an edge well and are very flat. At almost an eighth of an inch thi...
