Plane Restorers Take Note!!!

Plane Restorers Take Note!!!

01-17-2014 02:09 AM by poopiekat | 20 comments »

After seeing some plane restorations by LJ ‘ToddJB’ back in December, I was glad to see someone asked him how he got such a terrific surface on the sides of his planes. His ‘workhorse’ as he referred to it, was a simple burnishing wheel! He claimed it would take a plane from rusty to shiny in one step! I had to have one of these, a hundred of my planes are in queue for restoration, and it’s taking me forever! So, I purchased a 3M burnishing wheel, the exact...

3M Sand Paper 150 gr.

3M Sand Paper 150 gr.

05-17-2013 06:41 PM by lumberjockey | 8 comments »

Hello there guys. This is my first review. After reading and learning from the reviews here, I felt that I should contribute something. Even though if it’s as trivial as sandpaper. I bought this sand paper from Lowes. I’ve always used the Norton brand sand papers and I couldn’t find any on the shelves at Lowes. And so I figured sand paper is sand paper. How much difference could there be. And also, it’s from 3M. And 3M is an good company with numerous excellent produc...

Big Quality of Life Improvement

I’ve been wearing plane jane, relatively cheap hearing protection for a long time. I have several different pairs, including a pretty comfortable 3M pair that I like. However, I had always wanted some way to play music while working in the shop. The wireless headphone + hearing protectors were always too much money (> $100) for me. Until I saw that Amazon had a lightning deal in December for this 3M Worktunes Wireless. I jumped on it for $65. The very same pair costs $85 at Home Depo...

Some grits are better than others

Some grits are better than others

05-14-2015 07:16 PM by Purrmaster | 8 comments »

This review is for multiple grits of the 3M “Pro Grade Precision” sandpaper sheets. All grits are red colored and have a sticky back. It appears to be a Home Depot exclusive. I’ve used a lot of this stuff in the last few months. Since Home Depot got rid of Norton 3X and started stocking this new 3M stuff. It appears to be a stearated, open coat sandpaper. I’ve used Norton 3X, regular 3M paper, 3M “Sandblaster”, 3M “Sandblaster Advanced”...

Effective, Comfortable Hearing Protection

Effective, Comfortable Hearing Protection

03-10-2014 11:37 PM by CharlesA | 8 comments »

Becoming more safety conscious in the workshop is something I’ve had to learn—it doesn’t come naturally to me. So even after I started wearing safety glasses regularly, using safety guards on tools, and consciously following safe tool use, I didn’t wear hearing protection. Why not? Because the loud noises didn’t really bother me, and I didn’t like any of the hearing protection I tried: some cheap earmuff style from the local hardware store, and the head...

3M™ SandBlaster™ Flexible Abrasives

3M™ SandBlaster™ Flexible Abrasives

02-20-2008 10:31 PM by leonmcd | 3 comments »

I just discovered these and used them on my Valentine’s Box 2008 project. Because of the small size of the box and the rounded bottom made by the bowl/tray router bit, I needed something flexible to follow the curves. I also need something that I could agressively work some problem areas left by the router. My regular sandpaper didn’t seem agressive enough and foam backed sanding pads are too stiff on the sanding surface to smoothly follow the tight curves. These pads are mu...

3M Random Orbital Sander - Elite Series 28498, Air-Powered, Non-Vacuum, 5 Inch

Most of the time I write a review of a product after I give it a period of time to break or at least after a couple of extensive projects. I’ve decided to review this one after about two hours of use. Just wanted to as I was impressed. I’ll be back if things should go south over time. My Bosch sander, which I really liked, bit the dust a bit to soon for my tastes. It was a really good electric sander that had low vibration and worked well over the past three years. Since I&#...

A good buy.

A good buy.

I bought this today, after I knew I was going to do a lot of sanding. I’ve been using the paper masks for a while and I hate them. I hate how the paper ones make you breath hot air and are really stuffy. I also hate how they never fit right. Opening 3m Respirator was easy and it was easy to assemble. All you have to do is attach the filters. There is two head straps on the respirator. The top one starts off as one strap but splits into two and cradles your head comfortably. The bott...

Great Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

Great Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

04-11-2017 06:27 PM by CharlesA | 12 comments »

I listen to lots of podcasts, and I especially like to listen to them while I woodwork. These 3M Worktunes headphones are just what the doctor ordered. As hearing protection they work well: block out the sound and are quite comfortable. Add to that the ability to listen to FM/AM/Aux/Bluetooth. I use the radio a bit. It is pretty basic, a manual tuning wheel—works adequately. I haven’t used the auxiliary cable hookup. Where they shine is the bluetooth capability. I find podcast...

I think they are much better than the usual doubble stick tapes such as carpet tape that I’ve been using for years. These tabs come in a variety of sizes and are intended for use as refills for many clips, hangers, etc used for wall hanging.When you use them wood to wood, wood to metal, etc just leave the tab exposed and when comes time to remove them pull the tab to release the adhesive, no sticky residue to clean up, no damaged wood surface, no struggles, no hassle. They are ...
