Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

09-03-2010 03:54 AM by PoppyJo | 7 comments »

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

Craftsman 12" Sliding Miter

Craftsman 12" Sliding Miter

12-25-2009 08:55 AM by Bob Kollman | 7 comments »

This miter saw has been very good purchase, I made some compromises in order to have a sliding compound miter sooner rather than later. I choose this one because of price $230.00 (I think the regular price is like $330.00), and durability. When I looked at the display model, it was firm and square. The saw has all the power I need, and most of the time I’m using it for cross cuts, and simple 45’s and 22.5’s . Out of the box everything was squared up, I had to make a slight...

great for ad-hoc jigs

great for ad-hoc jigs

02-18-2012 09:30 PM by John | 7 comments »

pics show just one example of using this product. I made this ad-hoc tapering jig for a project today in about 4 minutes, the rockler hold downs are great! as you can see i used one rockler and one cheap chinese knockoff hold down – big difference! the cheapo flexes and has a plastic insert that’s always getting sideways i will break this jig down now that i’m done cutting tapers for today (see pic below) and put the track and hold downs back into the clear plastic tube t...

RIDGID GEN5X Combo Kit, Up For Review + A Giveaway!

08-06-2015 01:50 PM by woodshopmike | 7 comments »

Alright y’all, I’ve recently reviewed the GEN5X line of tools and I gotta say I’m nothing short of impressed with the features, quality, and power. So, like normal the GEN5X review is on my blog, but what’s awesome (and what everyone is probably more interested in) is that RIDGID is sponsoring a giveaway for the GEN5X Combo Kit. So if free tools sound good to you then enter the giveaway at the bottom of the review. If free tools don’t sound good then, well...

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

05-31-2008 04:04 PM by teenagewoodworker | 7 comments »

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. ...
