Specialized plane that has a lot of uses

Specialized plane that has a lot of uses

05-31-2008 07:49 AM by ShannonRogers | 6 comments »

I got a great deal on the set of these on ebay, but after using them on my new countertop and router table to trim edge banding I would definately pay full price in a heartbeat. These use the same thick iron and easy adjustment as all the other bevel up planes in the Veritas line. I followed the set up instructions included and was making shavings in just a few moments. After using the set screws to dial in the fit, I pulled out the iron and honed it up to 8000. The back of the iron was a...

Metabo PowerMaxx

This little 4.8 volt drill/driver is fast becoming my go-to tool. A true pocket-drill, it has more torque than you can imagine, and comes with 2 batteries, a 90 degree adapter,a screw-on chuck, and case. While I wouldn’t want to screw an entire deck surface with(batteries charge overnight), it drives screws in hardwood very nicely, and is very compact. You just won’t believe the torque! Easily 5 stars! Purchased from Rocklers!

A big step up ( with a few nice extras)

A big step up ( with a few nice extras)

Good evening LJ’s, 1. It came with an air hose2. Dual couplings 3. Goodies, Goodies,Goodies A few more of the great features are that it is oil free No oil to maintain, the controls are up front and easy to use, moisture drain is easy to use and operate, and the air ratchet, impact gun, and hose seal the deal. Out of the box the finish is nice and the overall quality is great but where this excels at is with my HVLP gun Although it is labeled for occasional use with spray guns I don...

The best book on power-tool joinery

The best book on power-tool joinery

06-01-2008 07:57 PM by Loren | 6 comments »

I have a lot of woodworking books. About 60 of them. Yeung Chan’s book is one of the best and most practicalof them all. He shows several ways to make each jointso even with a modestly equipped shop you’ll be ableto make quality joints. Yeung’s jig designs are great too. They aren’t complicatedor hard to build and he explains how to make sure theyare accurate. Gary Rogowski also wrote some great books about making joints – but if you get just one get ...

Rarely needed yet useful

Rarely needed yet useful

02-07-2009 08:27 AM by JuniorJoiner | 6 comments »

I have had a set of the Lie-Nielsen Joinery floats for a few months now, and unbelievably i have even found uses for them.When i first saw these tools advertised on their site, I actually called my wife over , and showed her. Not from amazement or anything like that, but to tell her to never get them for me. Apparently she pays as much attention as i would to her new shoes, because just short weeks later they arrived. Smiling and being thankful, I put them all in the tool roll, and tossed ...

This is a very usesfull tool for doing just what it says and doing it prety well.It works on any type thread, metric, ASA or even Whitworth.Great for getting rid of rust and grunge and even burrs.From the catalogue..

The patented yet simple design allows the hardened steel cutters to adjust to any size, pitch or direction of thread — Im...

I bought a spray system from peachtree woodworking on black friday, and on a whim I added two sets of these earmuffs to the order because they were on sale for under $10, normal price $14.99. http://www.ptreeusa.com/safety_products.htm#4205 As far as hearing protection goes, they worked OK – until they broke. Comfort:3/5. They weren’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t like Pamela Anderson was covering my ears with her ample bosom either. Fit: 3/5. Even after adjusting...

Good Bang for the Buck

Good Bang for the Buck

05-30-2011 01:50 PM by knotscott | 6 comments »

The AR118 is a compact portable electric power washer. It’s not in the same league as a $1500 commercial grade gas powered washer, but it’s plenty capable for average residential use, and is a solid bang for the buck. It’s small, lightweight, inexpensive, and very portable. It does an excellent job on vinyl siding, patio furniture, concrete, paint and stain removal from decks, and is great at pre-rinsing major dirt off the car, though you’ll still need to wash with so...

Porter-Cable PC218C-2 PORTER-CABLE 18-Volt Cordless Drill & Circular Saw Combo

Porter-Cable PC218C-2 PORTER-CABLE 18-Volt Cordless Drill & Circular Saw Combo

01-07-2013 01:31 AM by kdc68 | 6 comments »

I’ve had this combo set for just over a year now. Overall they work good. The Nicad batteries aren’t as long lasting as I would have hoped. When I had the chance I upgraded to Lithuim batteries. That was an improvement.The drill has its quirks. The chuck isn’t the best. Once in a while the driver or a drill bit comes loose when using it. I have learned to tighten the chuck after a few uses.The cordless saw isn’t bad, but I upgraded to a better blade (the norm). ...
