Erecta-rack modular drying racks

02-18-2011 04:23 PM by Steve2 | 7 comments »

Industry and trade shows include steel rolling and other racks for drying painted (sprayed) panels, cabinet doors, or simply flat works products. Typical steel rolling racks cost $200 and upward, require appreciable floor space, particularly if used infrequently making them unsuitable for the hobbyists. The August IWF industry show in Atlanta unveiled a new product that solved this need for the small user. See Erecta-rack.com I have no connection to or vested interest in this company, t...

Laguna LT16 HD review-from unpack to.....

Laguna LT16 HD review-from unpack to.....

01-29-2014 05:03 PM by Hartworks | 7 comments »

I am new to Lumberjocks and wanted to share information regarding this bandsaw because I found only a few posts on the model when I was doing my research and decision making. May I start with John Carrasco at Laguna Tools. I contacted him regarding a demo model and was going to initially purchase a LT16 3000 series. Then I did some looking around and thought I was going to change to the LT14SUV. You see the LT14SUV has resaw capacity of 14” and a 3HP motor, the LT16 3000 series ha...

The day has come to upgrade , and after several months of research I decided to go with the Laguna Lt14BX bandsaw. First reason I went with this saw is motor size , this is a 2.5 hp motor on a 14” saw ! Second the fact that it can resaw 13” high boards, lastly even though it is manufactured overseas it is all Laguna ( ceramic guides, pyramid spine, very heavy steel and the fit and finish is impeccable . The other big draw for me was that Laguna uses a ceramic blade guide system i...

Rhynosoft pads have been mentioned/rated before & thanks again to Charles Neil for mentioning them in one of his videos. I’m finishing my 1st box & ordered some of these pads in various grits. Used the 320 for the arm-r-seal fiinsh. Pads are great to work with, tore one sheet in half & still has plenty of life left. Pads don’t crinkle like paper backed. Conforms nicely to the piece. $10.75/box of 20 pads 4 1/2×5 1/2. Grits available from 180 to 1200Web site is www...

First Re-Saw with this blade

First Re-Saw with this blade

07-23-2013 12:42 AM by Adam | 7 comments »

I had purchased a 1 hp King bandsaw for $80 off Kijiji (Canada’s Craig List) and gage it a complete overhaul and added a 6” riser kit to it. I purchased a Little Ripper Bandsaw blade for $36 from R&D Bandsaws are located in Brampton, Ontario, just 30 min from me. This is my first real experience re-sawing anything substantial with it and it worked very well. This is 12” of hard maple and the surface finish is not the best but that is because I kept on stopping a sta...

Sanded Quality Edges!

Sanded Quality Edges!

I’ll keep my review succinct as I know there’s an extensive number of reviews on the Forrest Woodworker II 10-inch 40 tooth available on the internet (168 reviews on Amazon last time I checked). This saw blade is advertised to leave a rip-cut saw edge as smooth as if it had been sanded. I must say, the results are completely in line with those advertised. I’ve ripped several types of wood in varying thicknesses using this blade and the blade has never failed to leave a sm...

Since my wife says I am very hard to buy a Christmas present for, I normally act excited and appreciative when I open a Christmas gift, even if it is something I already have or is the wrong size or color. SO I normally buy my own so I get what I can really use. I had a G0453Z that I purchased three years ago. It worked well and with the increased volume here in the shop I decided it was time to upgrade to a larger planer with added features and more power. (Sounds like Tim Allen doesn&...

I recently bought a box of these nails to assemble a five-board bench. I drilled small pilot holes just to keep the nails headed in the right direction. Tremont recommends a pilot hole about the diameter of the nail halfway to the tip, but mine was much smaller and did the job just fine. The nails are a joy to drive, but they are soft—softer than round shank nails you might find at the hardware store. This makes it easy to clinch them, if you want, but also makes it easy to bend them...

Traditional Woodworker chisels

Traditional Woodworker chisels

02-22-2011 06:05 PM by dbray45 | 7 comments »

I purchased 6 chisels of this set. I was looking for a set of chisels that were in inches and not metric conversion like most of the chisels out there. My current set of Marples/Irwin/blue handled chisels have been good to me but are not real hard and keeping them sharp has been an issue. So, I bought the 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, and 5/8” chisels since these were the sizes that I will use the most. The way they are labeled is also nice and readable. These chisels, like all the r...

3M Microfinishing Film for tool sharpening

3M Microfinishing Film for tool sharpening

09-20-2012 06:33 AM by Purrmaster | 7 comments »

I bought this stuff from Tools for Working Wood a couple of months ago and have been using it since: http://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/store/dept/THS/item/ST-MAF.XX/3M_Micro_Abrasive_Film__for_Scary_Sharpening_-_PSA This finishing film from 3M is used in place of sandpaper for Scary Sharp. The grit of these are measured in microns. Tools for Working Wood has an article that gives a rough equivalency to the water stone grits. I.e. 1 micron is equivalent to a 1,000 grit stone. Please...
