Exactly What I Needed

Exactly What I Needed

02-24-2016 01:47 AM by smitty22 | 7 comments »

This set of silicone chisel tips/guards is exactly what I’ve been looking for since I started using chisels for serious woodworking. They are rugged and feel like they will survive quite a bit of use, fit standard flat chisels nicely, and are bright red so they don’t disappear in a pile of shavings. There are 10 of these in the set, about $10 or so. Shown here installed on a few of my chisels, at $10.00 for the set, not cheap, but sure helps keep the cutting edges from bangi...

What the heck does that plane do...

What the heck does that plane do...

10-05-2011 04:08 PM by WayneC | 7 comments »

I’ve been going through my woodworking videos and rewatching them while I work out on the exercise bike. This one by Jim Kingshott is a wonderful video that takes you through the use of almost every specialty plane you could encounter. This video complements his bench plane video that I reviewed previously. I own most of the handplane related videos on the market other than ones by Rob Cosman. For some reason, I do not own a single video from Rob. I guess have a similar reaction t...

Lightweight saw  cuts with power and precision

Lightweight saw cuts with power and precision

05-31-2008 03:12 PM by Loren | 7 comments »

I don’t like the big 10 and 12” Slide compound saws. They aretoo heavy to easily move around. I’m a relatively young man andI am strong, but still I don’t like lifting much more than 40 lbs. if I’m installing trim. I bought this saw because I was doing a job where I had to miter9” wide crown moulding and my older 12” miter saw (not a slider)wasn’t able to do it, even on the flat. The larger a blade on one of these sliding saws, the more ...

Good idea but too flimsy

Good idea but too flimsy

Well i needed an edge guild and i didn’t want to order away for one so i got this milescraft edge guide. it is a good concept. it comes with a “swiss cheese” base that can be used on almost all routers which it able to be put into the edge guide and then you twist the router in the edge guide and it locks the router in. also they have a turnlock bushing that they include which is the same concept of the base. just insert it and twist to lock it down. as i said it is a good c...

Thompson bowl gouge and Thompson detail gouge

Thompson bowl gouge and Thompson detail gouge

02-03-2009 03:10 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 7 comments »

I have seen a few postings on Lumberjocks about Thompson lathe tools (www.thompsonlathetools.com) and wanted to let everyone know these are some of the best turning tools that I have ever used. I purchased my first Thompson tool a couple of years ago and now own the complete set. Pictured are the 7/16” Thompson detail gouge and the 5/8” Thompson bowl gouge. The tools arrive sharp and ready to use right out of the box. They hold an edge better than every other tool that I have. ...

Combining Power Tools and Planes

Combining Power Tools and Planes

10-06-2011 04:08 PM by WayneC | 7 comments »

This DVD is another one filmed in the mid 90s and makes the argument of why would would want to use handplanes to augment your power tool woodworking. In the video he uses modern manufacture planes from the 90s such as a crappy stanley #4 stanely, #92 and 60 1/2 block plane. I was not really in favor of his advise and techniques and feel the video is so so. I would recommend videos from KingShott, Schwarz, Charlesworth and perhaps Cosman over this video. Topics coveredTuning a #4Sh...

GREAT sprayer

GREAT sprayer

05-23-2013 07:54 PM by donburkard | 7 comments »

So i bought the q4 in july 2012. I have used it a couple dozen times on everything from full kitchens to tiny wine balancers. I want to start by saying this is a great unit. I love the xpc gun. I dont have a crazy amount of experience spraying finishes but i have done my fair share over the years. I have used several different types and this is by far the best i have ever used. If your looking for a “high quality” hvlp system this is the one. I have used the Apollos and th...

Everything one needs to know is in this book.

Everything one needs to know is in this book.

After I built myself a table with no woodworking knowledge of any kind, I was fiendish to know more. I bought this book, and the course of my life changed. This book starts with the basics of how trees grow, progresses to glue types, methods of work, joinery, and all sorts of other details. Though dry at times, all the information is there. Since it was published in 1970, some of the info about woodworking machinery is out of date. The benefit of this is there is a huge attention on han...

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

06-22-2014 06:06 PM by retfr8flyr | 7 comments »

I have had my Baileigh Industrial JP-1250 for about 8 months now and I think I have used it enough to give a credible review. Baileigh has been around in the metal machine business for years but just started getting into woodworking machines. I did a lot of research before I pulled the trigger on this machine and decided, at the price it was selling for, I couldn’t pass it up. The machine arrived in great shape with excellent packaging. It comes with 4 heavy casters but they don̵...
