New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

1636 days ago by Andrew | 6 comments »

This is my first good plane, in fact it cost more than my 3 other planes all together. I needed a plane that could get into corners, and trim along edges. I wanted to get the 92 it had a 3/4” width as opposed to the 93 with a 1” width, but the 92 was on back order until mid april. My needs are my needs so here goes the 93. It took only a couple of minutes to flatten the back of the iron and hone the edge. The bottom seems pretty flat. After a couple minutes of set up and ad...

Vintage Craftsman 1/3 Sheet Sander

Vintage Craftsman 1/3 Sheet Sander

1898 days ago by dustbunny | 6 comments »

No longer available for purchase through Sears, this sander can still be had at yard sales, auctions, eBay, or your grandpa’s workshop. Since I totally dislike sanding as part of the woodworking experience, I have to say I love this sander. Once I established the fact that I had a stack of cutting boards that needed to be sanded and had built my downdraft table to ease my pain, my husband turned up with this sander. He held it out saying it belonged to his dad, and it was one of his ...

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

515 days ago by scarpenter002 | 6 comments »

Ordered these clamps from Woodcraft to go with my DeWalt TrackSaw for $44.99. Purchased these at a 10% discount in December. Watch for their “10% off all DeWalt” sales to order items like this, as they do not normally go on sale. It was shipped direct from the manufacturer. I have used these with both the TrackSaw and Router adapter. Features:These slide into the bottom of the track and quickly can be engaged or released with one hand. (very similar mechanism to the Quick-...

Satisfies expectations

Satisfies expectations

1631 days ago by Twigger | 5 comments »

This machine satisfies expectations as long as you keep in mind it’s a 30” long, 60 lb. machine. So don’t go looking to joint 8 foot long boards as if it’s a 60” long, 300 lb. unit. But for drawer fronts and sides, home-made router table and cross cut sled fences, and the like, it’s great! Also expect, as I’ve seen in reviews of all sorts of jointers, to spend two hours carefully setting the infeed and outfeed tables to being coplanar, and getting ...

There is more here than meets the eye

There is more here than meets the eye

512 days ago by Ken Fitzpatrick | 5 comments »

I’ve always admired Chris Schwartz so when his new DVD came out I ordered it. I have never built anything exclusively with hand tools. Could be laziness or not enough confidence it would be worth my efforts. When I started watching the DVD, little subtleties crept in that really didn’t make any difference whether you were building with hand tools or “the new technology”. Those subtleties have certainly added to my knowledge on how to choose, lay out and and jus...

New affordable sliding mater saw

New affordable sliding mater saw

1894 days ago by Milo | 5 comments »

Hey True Believers, I’ve needed a new miter saw for too long now, and had actually purchased a 10” Skil from WorkShop tools. A couple weeks back I saw on their website that they had generic SLIDING miter saw for about 140.00. It was TD 10” Sliding Miter saw. Well, I’ve been trying to figure out where to put a big Radial arm saw I had (and had never used) and ended up taking the plunge with the new sliding miter instead. Since I had never opened up the box with...

A bit disappointing

A bit disappointing

1225 days ago by RandyMorter | 5 comments »

I recently got a Starrett C33H-12-4R 12-Inch Combination Square to replace an old (from the late 1970’s) Stanley 12” that just wasn’t cutting it for me in my hobby level woodworking. I really like this new square but I don’t use it for everything – I carry a Empire 6” from Home Depot in my apron and I use the 6” for most markings due to it’s size being more appropriate for most of what I do. After getting the 12” Starrett I am not happy...

Bosch CS10 Circular Saw

Bosch CS10 Circular Saw

312 days ago by redSLED | 5 comments »

This is a review on Bosch’s CS10 circ. saw w.r.t. a major design flaw, IMO, that I felt was significant enough to post here, so others don’t waste their time and money on this product. So this is not an in-depth review of using the saw over a 6 month period. Basically I first chose to buy this saw because it is often on sale for $99. at a lot of big box/hardware stores, plus on a lot of carpentry website forums many have noted Bosch’s durability and reliability (almost alway...

Freud Guide Bushing Adapter Ring installs different than most

Freud Guide Bushing Adapter Ring installs different than most

511 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is an adapter ring for the Freud FT1700VCE router, and it also fits some other Freud routers. It is a brass ring that allows the stock baseplate to accept standard 1-3/16” P.C. style guide bushings. One of the pictures shows a guide bushing installed, however these are purchased separately. The strange thing about this adapter ring is it has no holes or threads to mount it. Instead, it snaps into a recess in the baseplate, and is retained with the heads of two screws. The scre...

Veritas Skew Block Plane

Veritas Skew Block Plane

958 days ago by Andrew | 5 comments »

The Christmas present that keeps on shaving. My wife suprised me while making me decide what plane to get. A devious plan at the least, but she pulled it off. I helped a friend decide on this plane as the most versatile over the Lie Nielsen skew block plane. The major factor was the adjustable mouth. I opted for the 01 blade, usually suggested by hand tool gurus for low angle instruments. And now for the review… The fit and finish are far above any tool I have previously owned, th...
