Excellent Rubber Glove

Excellent Rubber Glove

01-02-2010 11:58 PM by ChunkyC | 8 comments »

Not your typical review and I know that a lot of other people use Nitrile gloves in the shop. I use the Advanced Tool Design Model ATD-6999 X-Large Blue Powder-Free, Fully Textured Nitrile Gloves, 100/box that I get from Amazon for about $9.00. What I like most about the gloves is the fit. I like that they are “roomy” without being loose and are very sturdy. I snag the gloves on lots of little bits here and there a lot and they seldom tear. I use them for finishing and in th...

Modern Practical Joinery by George Ellis

Modern Practical Joinery by George Ellis

04-19-2010 09:58 PM by JohnnyW | 8 comments »

George Ellis was a joiner working in England at the end of the 19th Century, and realising that he wouldn’t be around to mentor my woodworking journey in person, he decided to set down his instruction in this convenient text. First, he tells me, a joiner must become familiar with the many hand tools that he will encounter, and understand how to use them. He pays special attention to teaching me how to create efficient mortice and tenon and dovetail joints. He also tells me, with a ra...

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

07-04-2014 11:30 AM by Ajs73 | 8 comments »

Bought this filter unit at a garage sale,brand new in box for $40. I don’t haveanything to compare it with but I’m amazedat how much dust accumulates on the outerfilter. I’m also running a HF dust collector. The unit has a 5 mic. outer and 1 mic. innerfilters,3 speeds, & remote control. For $40 anythingthat keeps dust out of my lungs is worthbuying. It’s a perfect size for my smallbasement shop with low ceilings. Menards is selling them for $160& I believ...

One Year Later...

I’ve owned this saw a little over a year now, figured it was about time to write a review. FYI; the orange box store is now stocking an updated version of this saw with a riving knife and various other updates. My saw is the older version, but from what I can tell, not much different, save some cosmetic updates and the riving knife. Out of the box, it came reasonably well tuned, though needed fixing. Aligning the blade to the slots is a matter of three allen screws and a small hammer...

Brilliant!

Brilliant!

My first experience spraying Minwax Polycrylic has been outstanding: thins and sprays better than oil based poly, no flammable fumes, easy to clean up and looks great. The biggest downside: sanding! The grain is raised twofold using the water based, plan on using 220 to knock down the first bristles and 400 to finish. I’m sold.

Kreg tool changes the way you work

Kreg tool changes the way you work

02-03-2008 03:04 AM by Jim | 8 comments »

I got pulled in at a woodworking show years ago, and I’m glad I did. I think this is the first generation offered by Kreg and I’m tempted to buy the latest just to see how much it’s improved. I enjoy building shelves and faceframe cabinets and the Kreg makes that work even more enjoyable. I mounted the tool to a piece of plywood so it’s always hanging nearby and easily clamped to a table for action. I bought the Kreg right-angle clamps and the metal plate which speeds ...

Delta dust collection, 2nd stage.

Delta dust collection, 2nd stage.

Since my comment on the origional entry I have received requests to show and explain my hookup for cyclone type lid and can. pic.1 shows the DC conected to the planer and the joiner. Each has a seperate blast gate. Since they operate in opisite directions the conecting hoses are never in they way. To me the key is the light gray hose. its very stiff and high quality. It also comes with the DC. Since the direction of the intake is changeable, in this type of configuration ‘up’ is...

Wow what a bummer

Wow what a bummer

04-26-2018 01:15 PM by chris6453 | 8 comments »

I waited patiently for my YAS slab master to arrive all was well . It arrived on schedule and in great shape . Once assembled we realized that the machine was wired for AUS-EURo 415v 3 phase . Once I realized that the options I had were a 3500.00 transformer or a new motor for 1400.00 I choose the later . I placed emails to YAS and the only response I have gotten to date after 12 emails is ” I will review and get back to you” Now 6 weeks later I can’t even get a returned ca...

Good Jig Saw Great Price

Good Jig Saw Great Price

10-16-2011 12:39 AM by patcollins | 8 comments »

Another reconditioned tool from Direct Tools factory outlet in Hagarstown MD. This one looked brand new except for the RECOND branded into the housing. This is a standard orbital jig saw with adjustable blade angle, adjustable shoe angle, adjustable orbital motion. adjustable locking speed, and a max speed limiter on the trigger. It has plenty of control and power and far more adjustements than I will ever need. I can’t really see myself needing the adjustable blade angle or the a...

Ulmia Miter Clamp Set and Spring Pinch Clamp

Ulmia Miter Clamp Set and Spring Pinch Clamp

02-04-2011 12:23 AM by Bob Simmons | 8 comments »

Some viewers have inquired about the miter clamps used in the articles and videos of my woodworking blog. So, here is my response and a review of the Ulmia Miter Clamps and Pinch Clamps. These are terrific tools for clamping corners. Read on and you will understand why. Over 30 years ago I took a deep breath as I purchased what I thought at the time were expensive tools. The Ulmia miter clamp pliers, clamp rings, and spring pinch clamps had a place in my tool box then and still do tod...
