Best double-sided tape I've used

Best double-sided tape I've used

06-20-2013 07:50 PM by Beezle | 6 comments »

I have tried many different methods of holding down work while routing or otherwise machining wood. Most work well enough, but I also happen to use a CNC milling machine to cut wood and in that case the material needs to be very stable and the thickness added by the tape must be consistent. Not to mention not damage anything upon removal. It’s a lot to ask and there seems to be a lot of different tapes out there. I recently noticed that Micro Fence sells a tape and I thought I wou...

I just bought this tool the other day specifically for one project, used it today for the first time, so this is an intial impression review and time will tell how it holds up or what other uses I may find for it. LOML asked me early in the week if I was working this weekend, and when I told her no I was off I stepped into the SWMBO trap!! Good she says, I ordered oriental carpet for a stair runners and you can help me install it this weekend. After reviewing her video on stair runner i...

Makitta LXFDO1CW best in class

Makitta LXFDO1CW best in class

03-11-2012 05:42 PM by Chipy | 6 comments »

After putting up with Ni-cad battery’s for the last 20 years it is a pleasure to finally own an 18 volt Lithium Ion drill/ driver. I chose the Makita LXFDO1Cw on Wood magazine’s review. The drill feels comfortable in your hand ergonomic and all that Fahrvergn├╝gen jazz. The motor is full of torque and has plenty of power. Recharge time was one of the shortest compared to its piers it its class according to Wood magazine but I have nothing to compare it to I am still living in Ni-c...

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

General Canada 10" Cabinet saw & General International 14" Bandsaw.

01-19-2013 02:57 AM by Steve | 6 comments »

Well finally recieved my saws after 5 weeks’s of waiting. Both saws were shipped in sturdy wooden packing crates, and were pretty well fully assembled. They were covered in plastic and some type of grease preventing them from rusting during transport. Neither saw had one scratch or any paint problems. I was very happy to recieve them in this condition. One major problem they sent the wrong fence and rails with the Cabinet saw, now I am waiting again. Hopefully it shows up soon as I a...

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

01-12-2014 02:24 AM by tturner | 6 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...

Great Deal

Great Deal

06-30-2008 03:17 PM by DannyBoy | 6 comments »

After being overly frustrated with the Craftsman router that I started out with (which still makes a good router for my router table), I finally broke down and bought this one this last weekend. I intended on picking up the Bosch combo at Lowes, but this one was on sale and I’m price minded to a fault. However, I can’t see how I could have made a better decision. The router is solid. 100%. I’ve not had the luxury of working with a mid-grade router like this before, bu...

Don't Eat this cookie,

Don't Eat this cookie,

I just got a set of these, and I was pretty surprised. I was a little hesitant to shell out $11 bucks for a glorified piece of wood but they work pretty good. They really remind me of a router mat that I bought a few years ago, they have the same type of non slip surface. You could probably make some from those drawer liners or non slip rug liners. But for me as busy as I am I would rather just buy them and keep going then stop and make them. Pretty cool though, I have to admit I will pr...

I’ve been using this about 10 days now. I think that’s enough for an opinion. I should have bought this a long time ago. It just does what he says it does. The first 2 pics show what comes in the box. A 1200 grit diamond wheel, a 600 grit diamond wheel, leather strop wheel,Tormek paste, shop rags, a pad to keep it from scooting, instructions, and a sticker. I should give the sticker to my granddaughter, she loves stickers. Wait a minute, that might come back to haunt me. It&...

Looks good so far

Looks good so far

I’m giving this five stars for now with the disclaimer that I’ve only used it for a short while on one day so far. I will update this if any problems arise. I see some of the issues with the older models, but the Airshield Pro seems to have corrected some of those. For example it is very light. I saw some complaints on the older one being heavy. They also say the current battery will run all day but I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know. Here’s why I b...
