You need this if you sand inside curves

11-24-2008 09:38 PM by ferstler | 7 comments »

This device is no longer in production, but used models might show up here and there. It had a list price of $99 when it was available new, and I lucked out and got the last display model at my local Home Depot for sixty-seven bucks. The top is cast iron, the rotational speed is 2000 rpm, and the oscillating range is 5/8 inch. The motor draws 3.5 amps and the weight is 49 pounds. The metal spindle is 1/2 inches in size and while it will hold a sanding sleeve that diameter you also have fou...

Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit

Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit

07-02-2010 06:48 PM by ChunkyC | 7 comments »

I purchased the Milescraft 1207 Router Design Inlay Kit because a friend wants me to inlay the Wisconsin “Running W” logo into a lid for him. The kit comes complete with everything that you need to get started routing inlays. I had to make a trip to the hardware store for M4×12 pan head screws to mount the universal base plate to my Freud router. It comes with 7” Universal Base Plate with the Turnlock system, three guide bushing, 4 templates with multiple cutouts, ...

DraftSight Review

DraftSight Review

08-23-2011 09:23 PM by Ryan | 7 comments »

I am a huge fan of drafting out my ideas on a digital medium.. specifically DraftSight. Now for those of you who are unfamiliar with drafting programs, this is SketchUp drinking Red Bull while playing Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. After saying this, I feel I must also state the learning curve (like playing Beethoven) is cruel to beginners. It’s fairly difficult to pick up with no background in drafting, but it’s also much more rewarding, and after learning the tricks to the...

Bowl Making Machine

Bowl Making Machine

01-01-2012 08:56 PM by doug1980 | 7 comments »

I bought this lathe used 2 years ago from my neighbor who also turned bowls with it. It’s powerful and easy to use. It will turn up to 38” spindles and turn 15” bowls inboard and up to 20” bowls outboard. I have made about 100 bowls with it and the only issue was the cooling fan belt slipped off once, easy fix. The headstock and tailstock are aligned perfectly and it accepts all the popular accessories like other brands. It may not be a Jet or Nova, but it is buil...

A fine little press for hobby-scale work

A fine little press for hobby-scale work

11-24-2008 11:22 PM by ferstler | 7 comments »

I own a Ridgid 15-inch drill press that is terrific for larger-scale projects. (I’d write a review here, but somebody else has already done that with decent skill, although I did post some comments on that review entry.) However, the Ridgid is overkill for some smaller operations, and so I also have the illustrated 10-inch Ryobi mounted on a bench for lightweight stuff. When I purchased it several years back it cost $99 bucks, which is a credit to Chinese production economies. Unfortuna...

Craftsman C3 19.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Compact Drill DD2100 - Review

Craftsman C3 19.2-Volt Lithium-Ion Compact Drill DD2100 - Review

11-20-2012 03:37 PM by Daris | 7 comments »

I recently purchased a new Craftsman Power Drill DD2100 from Sears.  I’ve been using it for about three weeks now and I have to say so far, I have NO complaints.  In fact I think it’s as solid a drill as I’ve ever used.  The drill came as part of a kit, and I was able to pick it up for $109 (on sale) from Sears.  For the price I think it’s a great bargain.  I was able to replace my old 19.2 cadmium battery-powered drill with a new high-end one for about $100, and s...

To Infinity and Beyond

To Infinity and Beyond

06-13-2009 07:50 PM by knotscott | 7 comments »

The 50T Infinity Combomax is the best 50 tooth combination blade I’ve tried to date. This is an extraordinarily well made blade that uses a unique ATB/R configuration that features a chamfered raker instead of the traditional flat top raker. It has very low tearout for this class of blade, and is particularly good in sheetgoods, while maintaining good ripping abilities due to it’s 12° hook. Any blade that’s designed to do multiple tasks has some inherent compromise relati...

This is a short pictorial on setting up the Small Plow to cut T&Gs. This is a new-to-me plane, and I took a few pics as I was working out the kinks and having a little play. I hope this helps some of you. Link: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ToolReviews/AccessoryBladesfortheVeritasSmallPlow.html Regards from Perth Derek

Fantastic quality, and great looks- but a big investment.

I recently got my hands on a pair of high end headphones. Since I listen to music and audiobooks in the workshop, and I know a lot of others here do too, I thought I’d give them a quick review… First off, they’re stunning. I mean, look at these suckers! That’s hand carved ebony, which immediately appeals to me as a woodworker. Wearing these around the shop just makes me look good! Each set has a different look, with its own unique grain pattern. They come in a high ...

Milwaukee 12-in Dual-Bevel Compound Miter Saw

Milwaukee 12-in Dual-Bevel Compound Miter Saw

07-06-2010 04:49 AM by POGO | 6 comments »

After 10 years of reliable service, I decided to update my Miter Saw station (i.e. bench with a single bevel DeWalt miter saw sitting on top). My decision was based my son now having a workshop where I could “will” him tools which could stimulate his interest in woodworking. This would give me a good excuse to upgrade to a miter saw which has been designed to capture the saw dust from the cut. I do not have the funds for a Kapex, which has been touted as the gold standard for miter saws,...
