SOMMERFELD 6 Piece Router Bit Set

SOMMERFELD 6 Piece Router Bit Set

06-21-2015 05:47 AM by MikeSpanky | 7 comments »

Never thought I’d be ordering such an expensive router bit set as this. That was until my wife and I began talking about new kitchen cabinets. I knew kitchen designs as well as methods for building them had changed since I last built a set for mom and dad over 25 years ago. It was when I began my research on YouTube that I saw how much things had changed. I had seen raised panel doors in the big box stores and loved the look. But to tackle A job like this I would have be out quite a bit...

A pleasant surprise from the Home Depot

A pleasant surprise from the Home Depot

06-16-2013 08:10 AM by Chris Hudak | 7 comments »

It all started when my father in law gave his Craftsman radial arm saw. I am am his favorite son in law after all (my wife is an only child.) Well I soon found out that life is too short to mess with with a Craftsman radial arm saw. When I finally got the thing aligned and running the blade would slow down and jam in the wood and it would be out of alignment all over again. Not wishing to inflict this pain on another human being I took the dang thing to the dump. The man working there seemed...

Smooth, Thin Cuts

Smooth, Thin Cuts

09-23-2010 10:32 PM by tnstaafl | 7 comments »

I just installed this Micro-Kerf 40 blade from Total Saw Solutions on my SawStop Contractor’s Saw, and I must say I’m impressed. Smooth, glue-ready cuts, with a kerf as thin as a dime. The blade comes with stabilizer discs built in, starts and runs with no blade noise. It went through a bunch of 4/4 oak very easily, which stands to reason since the kerf is so thin. The stabilizer discs do limit the depth of cut a little, but for precision cutting of quality hardwoods – I l...

Good, reliable jig, no longer in the HF catalog...

Since the family blowup at Harbor Freight, a lot of good tools have gone out of the catalog, in particular, the aluminum taper jig. Now I am not sure what all can be said about this thing. It’s just about as straight forward and simple as can be, and it works exactly as you would expect it to. When they were available, they were often on sale for about $13.00, or $11.40 after the 20% off coupon… The jig slides easily along the fence, holds tight and secure, the adjustments h...

Grizzly inflatable drum / flap sander

Grizzly inflatable drum / flap sander

03-10-2012 06:24 AM by redryder | 7 comments »

The only other review I could find on this sander was posted 1300 days ago. I found this machine on Craigslist about six months ago and have used it quite a bit since. It is a beast of power. Very straight forward and simple to operate. I have used and wasted my money on many smaller flap sanders on the drill press with less than great results. This machine will cut your sanding time WAY down. It will take square edges and round them over quickly and accurately. Projects such as cutt...

It's a mallet, but a really good one.

It's a mallet, but a really good one.

02-12-2008 06:00 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 7 comments »

Recently I started looking for a mallet for chopping mortises and dovetails. I looked at a lot of different mallets. I never really liked the traditional mallets like this one. When I looked at them in the stores, they always seemed too big for their weight. Not too long ago Christopher Schwarz talked about this mallet on his blog. He talked about the same things I didn’t like about these type of mallets. He then came across this mallet and it was different. They make these malle...

Like many ljs I have a dust collector and ambient air cleaners in my shop. Although they do a good job keeping my shop clean, while working with cedar I still found myself coughing at night.I smoked for years and still work as an auto dealer tech so I think my lungs are holding a grudge!I bought this mask 11-2011 and have used it many hours. It’s comfortable to wear, has a strap that goes over my head to support it’s weight and the same strap slides thru the mask and buckles behin...

Great addition to any woodshop

Great addition to any woodshop

03-11-2012 01:22 AM by hate2sand | 7 comments »

I have several mechanics vices around my shop in various sizes but have always relied on clamps for woodworking projects. Tireing of this practice, I decided to look at woodworkers vices. I don’t use a true woodworker’s type workbench and rely on my table saw outfeed table as a general work area, so I wanted to mount the wood vice in the end of that table. After some internet research I decided on the Wilton 79A Pivot Jaw vice and ordered one on-line from Tyler Tool. The vice was shippe...

An oldie but a goodie

An oldie but a goodie

01-10-2014 05:00 PM by Mainiac Matt | 7 comments »

I purchased this new in ‘96 from Woodworkers Whse, in a package deal with a stand for ~$400. Milwaukee chop saws and sliders were the king of the hill back then, as the only dual bevel miter SCMS on the market, with the motor mounted high and belt drive, was the Hitachi, and it was a lot more expensive. This is b4 the day of the 12” DeWalt sliders, which took over the market several years later. This saw has proven to be a real work horse. I was building a timber frame house...
