Porter Cable PSH1 Excells at spraying Lacquer

Porter Cable PSH1 Excells at spraying Lacquer

11-21-2010 10:26 AM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

Have you ever been frustruated spraying lacquer? The PSH1 comes with a 1.5mm tip that will spray lacquer beautifully. I thin mine 20% with lacquer thinner, and spray with 35 psi at the gun. The gun comes with it’s own requlator to it is easy to adjust. I like to use a spot light to really see what the finish looks like when it goes down. With this gun it always looks great – no sputtering or inconsistent patterns – just a smooth even finish that looks like it was layed ...

A very good set for the money

A very good set for the money

02-26-2013 05:26 PM by Ron Harper | 8 comments »

Redoing my shop and needed a new set of bench chisels, at least I talked myself into a new set. Paul Sellers had given the Narex Bench chisels a good word, so I ordered the Imperial set from Lee Valley. They arrived almost perfectly flat, and sharp enough that only a quick hone got them ready to work. Please realize that I am not doing this for a living, so my tools do not get the hard use of a 10 hour a day cabinet maker. But, i spend at least two full days a week in the shop. These thi...

The Woodpeckers Mini Square is great and FREE SHIPPING doesn't last long!

The Woodpeckers Mini Square is great and FREE SHIPPING doesn't last long!

10-28-2009 12:59 AM by John Gray | 8 comments »

When I was at the Lie-Nielsen get together at Indianapolis on the 17th of October 2009 Chris Schwarz was using this little square to check plane blade edges for square. I thought the Mini Square was neat so last week when I got an email saying Woodpeckers had free shipping until Thursday the 29th I ordered one I received it today. I used it to square up the table with the blade on my bandsaw and true up the blade on my table saw it works great. It comes in a neat little storage box that...

Serious sander, seriously expensive

Serious sander, seriously expensive

02-13-2010 04:20 AM by PhineasWhipsnake | 8 comments »

I took a deep breath and forked over the money for this sander on the strength of the reviews on Amazon and in a couple of woodworking magazines. I’ve been a woodworker for 50 years and have had many random-orbits, belt sanders, profile sanders, etc., but this baby actually lives up to the hype. I just finished a kitchen remodel where I built about a dozen drawer boxes as well as face frames & cabinet doors. This sander cut my sanding time literally in half. Since most other random...

Popular Woodworking: The 10 Commandments of Finishing

Popular Woodworking: The 10 Commandments of Finishing

06-17-2010 04:46 AM by lobro4 | 8 comments »

I purchased the download version of this book and saved a few bucks using my discount code from The Wood Whisperer site. It is also available as a DVD. The download is in the .mp4 format and will play using Quick Time. The purchase, download and viewing with Quick Time was effortless. The download is 3 separate 30-minute videos at 160 MB each. If your download connection is slow, be aware that it may take some time. Once playing, the video quality on full screen lacks in clarity a bit b...

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

08-08-2011 09:49 AM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

Like most of us, I get into different stuff that requires a bit more than soap and water to get off my hands and forearms. For as long as I can remember I’ve used the gojo, orange cleaner with pumice, mineral spirits, sometimes acetone, even gasoline to get the various stains, finishes and glues off. A couple of weeks ago, I was in the local Sherwin Williams paint store and saw this product for $3.49. I asked the manager if it was good stuff. He laughed and said that he couldnR...

Wicked Sharp Chisels

Wicked Sharp Chisels

10-24-2015 01:59 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, Before I get started here, I want to say something up front. The article about getting a wicked sharp chisel didn’t even pay a nod to the scary sharp method. Anyhow – I needed to sharpen some chisels so I decided to be your guinea pig. The instructions say buy a piece of glass so you have a very flat surface to work from. I went ahead and got some pieces of marble. Heck – the marble I bought was perfect for the job. Lowe’s was blowing out some 8X4 inch ...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

01-20-2016 05:54 AM by ajthomas5009 | 8 comments »

For Christmas I received the Veritas Cabinet Scraper w/EX blade. I really wanted a cab scraber because I hear they were amazing tools and I heard it was hard to beat the price of the Veritas Not to mentioned it was slightly bigger than the No 80 and had a thicker blade. Well let me tell you Veritas didn’t disappoint. out of the box the fit and finish was excellent, the sole was flat and the blade was ready to take a decent shaving. I used the stock blade for a cpl of hrs with no prob...

Accurate and Dependable

Accurate and Dependable

02-09-2016 11:31 PM by Kelly | 8 comments »

I have a large Bosch digital finder and liked it so much I thought I’d try this smaller version for projects that did not require the various capabilities of the larger unit. After doing so, I decided I need a few of them around for the shop and the work van. These work well for setting and checking angles when doing blade set ups on miter saws, table saws and band saws. They give a good read-out for inner and outer angles, such as when building picture frames. They are easy to ch...

Steel City bandsaw blade - fooled me

Steel City bandsaw blade - fooled me

10-23-2012 03:33 PM by Tennessee | 8 comments »

On this site it seems like everyone has their favorite blade. To me, longevity is a biggy, as it is with most woodworkers. For a long time I struggled to find a good bandsaw blade, and it never seemed like I could get more than two months out of a blade. Months ago, back when I was still a one bandsaw shop, (so this has to be before my Grizzly, maybe five-six months ago?), I ordered four Steel City bandsaw blades, 93 1/2, 1/4” thick, 14TPI, from the Home Depot website.The order got m...
