Flatten your stones frequently

Flatten your stones frequently

01-02-2010 07:02 AM by gizmodyne | 6 comments »

We bought this three months ago on sale at Woodcraft. They go for $32 U.S. Purpose: A flat reference surface to lap your water stones upon. Water stones sharpen quickly but wear quickly too. Therefore they need to flattened frequently, especially if you are sharpening a thick iron. At 2” the surface plate is thick enough to avoid deflecting under pressure. To use: Soak wet-dry sandpaper (I like 100 grit), press it down. Lap away. You can also sharpen tools directly on the sandpape...

DONT BUY B&D BLADES

DONT BUY B&D BLADES

02-02-2008 08:44 PM by teenagewoodworker | 6 comments »

i thought that i could buy a few black and decker blades for my new jig saw and they were cheap enough that i could stock up so i did. they cost 2$ for 2 blades at Lowe’s. i am going to spring for the more expensive Bosch, and Milwaukee blades next time i buy. the blades were wandering so much that by the end of the cut i would have a 20 degree angle running all along the edge of the board. i will not buy black and decker jigsaw blades or any other black and decker blades again

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

07-30-2009 03:04 AM by jerryz | 6 comments »

I bought this at my WoodCraft Store and have installed it my workshop.I can attest that it stops rusting on my Table Saw and the beauty is that this protection will last 2 years.Also the Capsule VC6-2 will protect a 905 ft3 Volume with a radius of 6 ft so any tools within this area are also protected.I have included the page on the woodcraft and the manufacturer info.I checked other suppliers and found that woodcraft had the better price. http://www.zerust.com/product/ict-vapor-capsules ...

Steel stick on tape

Steel stick on tape

08-04-2012 06:08 PM by guitchess | 6 comments »

After realizing that I had stretched my vinyl tape when assembling my tablesaw, I started searching for a replacement. I knew that I wanted a steel tape so as to avoid the issue of stretch. The only version that I found online was $17 so I postponed buying so I could search for a cheaper alternative. I was killing time in the tool department at Walmart and stumbled on this one. the Komelon 12’ x 1/2” Flat Tape Ruler. As soon as I saw that it was steel I was interested and whe...

A Whole Lot Cheaper for Almost the Same Quality

A Whole Lot Cheaper for Almost the Same Quality

02-01-2011 04:01 AM by StumpyNubs | 6 comments »

I am not an expert carver. I did most of my carving with a rotary tool and longed to own one of those big power carvers like I saw at Woodcraft for $400. So when I saw one at Harbor Freight for 50 bucks you can imagine my excitement. Here’s the details… This is essentially a 1/4hp rotary tool. It is a motor that hangs from a wall bracket with a long flexable shaft with a little adjustable keyed chuck (like an drill) on the end that’ll accept any size carving bit. It’...

Very nice little plane

Very nice little plane

02-28-2012 06:51 PM by Kerry Drake | 6 comments »

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...

Best darn driver I've ever used

Best darn driver I've ever used

02-03-2008 02:49 AM by Jim | 6 comments »

How many tools evoke real pleasure each time you use them? This Makita will do that. I was replacing a patio cover while doing a “Paint the Town” project a couple of years ago. The cover was composed of dozens of 16’ long 2×4’s that needed to be screwed into the crossmembers. A guy that fixed my garage door recommended I buy this Makita for the job. Boy, was he right. Now I typically reach for the Makita before I consider any other drill/driver. The impact takes ...

A good product for a craftsman .113

A good product for a craftsman .113

08-05-2012 12:35 AM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

A won’t go too in-deepth here. Its a pretty simple product and it works well. The insert has 4 leveling screws to adjust flush with the table top. It also has adjustable screws in the top/side to prevent any lateral movement (see pic). The insert actually fit pretty well out of the box. After about 2 minutes worth of adjustments, it was dead-on. Seems to be good quality and I have no reason to think it won’t last for years. I’ll probably buy two more for dado and thicker, cr...

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

03-02-2012 03:29 AM by Pete_Jud | 6 comments »

Received this today, and mounted it up to a PC 690 D handle router. It’s kind of one of my “go to” routers in the shop. It was thicker than I expected, with a larger hole to be able to use larger bits than the Rockler clear insert that I had been using on this router, so it will not be able to use standard PC insert guides, and that”s ok with me as I have other plates to use. The laser was “dead nuts” on using a 45 V grove bit, But the feature I like the...

Excellent customer support for a lost package

Excellent customer support for a lost package

08-07-2012 10:11 PM by bobasaurus | 6 comments »

I ordered a few lathe tools from Woodcraft during their last sale, and was excited when I checked the tracking number at work and the box had been delivered. But then I got home and the package was nowhere to be seen. It either got lost or stolen, and it was pretty frustrating… never happened to me before at my house, and I’ve ordered tons of packages. I didn’t hold out much hope to get my items or money back, but I tried emailing Woodcraft’s customer service anyway...
