A very good set for the money

A very good set for the money

02-26-2013 05:26 PM by Ron Harper | 8 comments »

Redoing my shop and needed a new set of bench chisels, at least I talked myself into a new set. Paul Sellers had given the Narex Bench chisels a good word, so I ordered the Imperial set from Lee Valley. They arrived almost perfectly flat, and sharp enough that only a quick hone got them ready to work. Please realize that I am not doing this for a living, so my tools do not get the hard use of a 10 hour a day cabinet maker. But, i spend at least two full days a week in the shop. These thi...

The Woodpeckers Mini Square is great and FREE SHIPPING doesn't last long!

The Woodpeckers Mini Square is great and FREE SHIPPING doesn't last long!

10-28-2009 12:59 AM by John Gray | 8 comments »

When I was at the Lie-Nielsen get together at Indianapolis on the 17th of October 2009 Chris Schwarz was using this little square to check plane blade edges for square. I thought the Mini Square was neat so last week when I got an email saying Woodpeckers had free shipping until Thursday the 29th I ordered one I received it today. I used it to square up the table with the blade on my bandsaw and true up the blade on my table saw it works great. It comes in a neat little storage box that...

Serious sander, seriously expensive

Serious sander, seriously expensive

02-13-2010 04:20 AM by PhineasWhipsnake | 8 comments »

I took a deep breath and forked over the money for this sander on the strength of the reviews on Amazon and in a couple of woodworking magazines. I’ve been a woodworker for 50 years and have had many random-orbits, belt sanders, profile sanders, etc., but this baby actually lives up to the hype. I just finished a kitchen remodel where I built about a dozen drawer boxes as well as face frames & cabinet doors. This sander cut my sanding time literally in half. Since most other random...

Popular Woodworking: The 10 Commandments of Finishing

Popular Woodworking: The 10 Commandments of Finishing

06-17-2010 04:46 AM by lobro4 | 8 comments »

I purchased the download version of this book and saved a few bucks using my discount code from The Wood Whisperer site. It is also available as a DVD. The download is in the .mp4 format and will play using Quick Time. The purchase, download and viewing with Quick Time was effortless. The download is 3 separate 30-minute videos at 160 MB each. If your download connection is slow, be aware that it may take some time. Once playing, the video quality on full screen lacks in clarity a bit b...

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

08-08-2011 09:49 AM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

Like most of us, I get into different stuff that requires a bit more than soap and water to get off my hands and forearms. For as long as I can remember I’ve used the gojo, orange cleaner with pumice, mineral spirits, sometimes acetone, even gasoline to get the various stains, finishes and glues off. A couple of weeks ago, I was in the local Sherwin Williams paint store and saw this product for $3.49. I asked the manager if it was good stuff. He laughed and said that he couldnR...

Wicked Sharp Chisels

Wicked Sharp Chisels

10-24-2015 01:59 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, Before I get started here, I want to say something up front. The article about getting a wicked sharp chisel didn’t even pay a nod to the scary sharp method. Anyhow – I needed to sharpen some chisels so I decided to be your guinea pig. The instructions say buy a piece of glass so you have a very flat surface to work from. I went ahead and got some pieces of marble. Heck – the marble I bought was perfect for the job. Lowe’s was blowing out some 8X4 inch ...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

01-20-2016 05:54 AM by ajthomas5009 | 8 comments »

For Christmas I received the Veritas Cabinet Scraper w/EX blade. I really wanted a cab scraber because I hear they were amazing tools and I heard it was hard to beat the price of the Veritas Not to mentioned it was slightly bigger than the No 80 and had a thicker blade. Well let me tell you Veritas didn’t disappoint. out of the box the fit and finish was excellent, the sole was flat and the blade was ready to take a decent shaving. I used the stock blade for a cpl of hrs with no prob...

Steel City bandsaw blade - fooled me

Steel City bandsaw blade - fooled me

10-23-2012 03:33 PM by Tennessee | 8 comments »

On this site it seems like everyone has their favorite blade. To me, longevity is a biggy, as it is with most woodworkers. For a long time I struggled to find a good bandsaw blade, and it never seemed like I could get more than two months out of a blade. Months ago, back when I was still a one bandsaw shop, (so this has to be before my Grizzly, maybe five-six months ago?), I ordered four Steel City bandsaw blades, 93 1/2, 1/4” thick, 14TPI, from the Home Depot website.The order got m...

Incra Gauge - precision marking gauge

Incra Gauge - precision marking gauge

02-14-2010 02:31 PM by Requiem | 8 comments »

Well I thought I would start off my review with items that I would use throughout my apprenticeship and being a novice I will review items that I think are good for the average home DIY woodworking. Items that anyone can afford not tools that we can only dream about or keep on display because they are expensive but we can actually use. I pick the Incra Gauge as for my item to review, the reason for this is that this one tool I would use on all my projects and for me it has been a valuable...

Does it's Job for a Great Price

Does it's Job for a Great Price

12-15-2011 08:07 PM by Kelen | 8 comments »

I had been in the market for a combination belt/disc sander for quite some time and read as much as I could on all the various brands. I landed on the Craftsman one primarily for the attractive price (and the encouragement of my father-in-law who has had one for who knows how many years), however, comparing its specs to other competing sanders, in nearly every category it scored as good if not better. For starters, this sander is heavy at around 85 lbs, and so much so that I have not had ...
