Freeman 23 Gauge Pinner

Freeman 23 Gauge Pinner

09-18-2013 04:42 AM by MarkwithaK | 6 comments »

I’m not usually one to add tool reviews simply because just about everything I’ve either researched and/or bought has already been reviewed at least once….except for Freeman nail guns. I guess I didn’t actually NEED a 23 gauge nailer but I sure as hell WANTED one, I just couldn’t justify the typical $100+ price tags that the well known units were commanding. I found the Freeman for just a hair over $50 through Amazon and pulled the trigger (no pun intended). ...

NEW TABLE SAW AND ACCESSORIES

NEW TABLE SAW AND ACCESSORIES

03-04-2014 04:26 PM by Tomas Ferko | 6 comments »

So I just purchased my new Grizzly G0715P Hybrid and I absolutely love it. I sold my G1023 left tilt 3 HP. for the money I got this new table saw and lots of accessories. Incra miter gauge 1000 HD, PSI dust hood and collection from PSI woodworking products.Also made new out feed table and project note clipboard as you will see in the pictures. It’s great because you can bring your paperwork with cut list to the table saw and just work without moving away from the saw.The out feed ta...

VARIOCLIPPIX ?????

VARIOCLIPPIX ?????

Hell of a name, say it 3 times fast if you can. Hey people, I found these clamps at Lowes and have never seen any like them before. I like spring clamp for quick hold of light objects and I have a whole lot of different sized ones. Check these out, one clamp can hold 2 pieces of 1/8th” or hold a one by onto a saw horse. Package says 2” to 4” but the 2” is maximum without extending the arm LOL Actual usage is 2 pieces of paper up to 4 1/4”. At $4.97 each, I reall...

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

Bosch PS30 -- whole lotta torque

05-19-2009 08:11 PM by Jim | 6 comments »

My 18V Makita finally died and I needed a replacement. I decided to get a more compact drill driver because I wanted to be able to get inside drawers, tight spaces, etc., not to mention the handyness of carrying a smaller tool. The PS30 isn’t as small as the PS20. The chuck is 3/8” – which I also wanted. And that’s what I got—not as big as a 1/2” drive, not as small as a 1/4”. Heavier and more powerful than just a driver but not as heavy as an 18V...

Nice accessory

Nice accessory

12-18-2011 05:53 PM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

Not a whole lot to say about a tool like this. I was looking for a device to hold stuff down on my work bench top. Amazon was selling this one for $10 shipped. I was a bit weary of ordering it since the stock photos made the screw threads look a bit too fine for my taste. However, as the included pic shows, the threads are actually fairly coarse. Nice. Installation is very straight forward. I’m pretty sure the manufacturer intends a 3/8 bolt to be used to attach the clamp to the benc...

Affordable Mobile Base

Affordable Mobile Base

02-16-2010 07:14 AM by johnnymo | 6 comments »

I have a 12ft x 14ft shop and needed a mobile base for my tablesaw. I purchased a mobile base for my jointer/planer a few months back that I’m not happy with so I decided to try this one out from Wood River.The instructions were pretty easy to follow and it didn’t take long to get it assembled. The base rolls great around the shop and the metal cam levers are very easy to engage and disengage with your foot. A word of caution: Be careful when disengaging the wheels when you hav...

Spar Urethane For Outdoor Use

Spar Urethane For Outdoor Use

09-22-2013 06:57 PM by Mike | 6 comments »

I’ve used the Helmsman® Spar Urethane for several outdoor protects and I wanted to share what I’ve learned about this product. First off, I must say that surface prep is everything in how this product will last over time. If you clean your surface of just, grime, and other foreign items, it should work well. I coated an outdoor bench about 5 years ago and it is now just starting to show signs that it needs to be refinished. The bench was out front of my old home on a dirt ro...

Carter RIK1 Stabilizer for Rikon saws

Carter RIK1 Stabilizer for Rikon saws

11-28-2010 06:48 AM by lashing | 6 comments »

This actually works. I cannot add much that isnt covered in the youtube videos Carter has up. I was 50/50 on buying it as I thought it may be hype. But it works great. I cut some amazing curves with it and now think it wasnt that expensive after all. OK for $80 it is expensive. Hopefully the bearing is a good one and I would assume it must be as its constantly engaged with the blade. Check out the promo vids Carter has. I am not affiliated at all. My real life experience matches what is...

My shopvac thanks me

My shopvac thanks me

12-21-2011 10:53 PM by live4ever | 6 comments »

I recently bit on Rockler’s sale on the Dust Right Vortex. I figured it was time to add a separator to my little Fein shopvac, considering I use the vac for all my shop’s dust collection (TS, BS, router table, drum sander, planer, etc.). I have the small model (Turbo I), so you can imagine how quickly it fills up. Up to this point, I was using it with the stock 5 micron cloth bag filter. The DR Vortex is simply a 10 gallon bucket that comes with a lid (the money part), 5 cas...

Rockler Coping Sled

Rockler Coping Sled

09-27-2013 05:21 AM by Albe | 6 comments »

I have never wrote a tool review but after using Rockler’s Coping Sled and not seeing any other reviews I figured I’d try my luck. I actually bought the copping sled several years ago when I got frustrated when using a rail and stile bit set to do the profile on the end grain. No matter how hard I tried bit seemed to grab and it threw it off track. I again realized how much of a lifesaver it is when using it again doing the same operation. Although the copping sled seems a little steep ...
