"Your Signature Here.." Branding Iron

"Your Signature Here.." Branding Iron

08-25-2011 08:39 PM by zindel | 8 comments »

For awhile now i have been thinking about getting a branding iron until i saw how much a custom one would cost. Well after a lot of emailing people and figuring out prices i was almost going to give up because i was not going to pay 100s of dollars just for a toy that i didn’t need. Then on amazon i saw one that you could email whatever your signature was to this company and they would make it you. So I shot them an email to see if what i had in mind would work and they said it would be...

Veritas Bevel Up Jointer Plane

Veritas Bevel Up Jointer Plane

11-21-2012 03:10 PM by jasondain | 8 comments »

Over the past month or so, I have been working on a Benchcrafted Split Top Roubo workbench (more on that in later posts). At this point, I’m in the home stretch flattening the top and I had bought this plane in anticipation of using it for flattening the top of the bench once it was ready. I have built other projects in the past where I could have used this but used my Bevel-up smoother for the task instead (I know, not technically for the purpose but it worked fine). I spent a few h...

Oneway Wheel Balancing System

Oneway Wheel Balancing System

03-03-2010 11:18 PM by Padre | 7 comments »

I bought this Oneway Wheel Balancing System from Craft Supplies, it cost 62.99. I do a lot of wood turning tool sharpening. I have an inexpensive 2 speed grinder I bought from Woodcraft and it rocked, rattled and rolled, that’s for sure!! I put this on this afternoon, and you would think I have a Baldor grinder with special balanced wheels. What a difference this has made. I recommend this grinder attachment.

Special Finishing Techniques DVD

Special Finishing Techniques DVD

11-18-2009 06:17 PM by mtkate | 7 comments »

Do you like quirky? (I DO!!!) Do you like unpretentious honesty? (I DO!!!) Do you like to get interesting and rock-solid insights into how an expert does his finishing? (I DO!!!) I got this DVD for a recent birthday. I put Charles Neil DVDs on my wishlist and actually got one. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it and learned a LOT. For example, I never really knew much about grain filling techniques… and now I am looking at remnants of red oak wanting to give it a shot. When m...

Does anybody have an opinion on this lathe?

Does anybody have an opinion on this lathe?

07-05-2010 09:11 PM by Tom Z | 7 comments »

I am seriuosly considering buying this lathe because of the swivel head stock. It has very similiar features of the DELTA 46-460 and the JET 1220. It is priced higher than both. Is it worth the extra $ ?

Fantastic quality, and great looks- but a big investment.

I recently got my hands on a pair of high end headphones. Since I listen to music and audiobooks in the workshop, and I know a lot of others here do too, I thought I’d give them a quick review… First off, they’re stunning. I mean, look at these suckers! That’s hand carved ebony, which immediately appeals to me as a woodworker. Wearing these around the shop just makes me look good! Each set has a different look, with its own unique grain pattern. They come in a high ...

Makita MAC5200 3 HP Air compressor

Makita MAC5200 3 HP Air compressor

04-16-2011 01:02 PM by phtools | 7 comments »

I purchased this compressor as a replacement for a 26Gal 5HP husky I had. There was nothing wrong with the Husky it was simply that my space could not accommodate it. I intended to use this as a homeowner who always has a project and as someone who uses compressed air for multiple purposes. I did alot of research and narrowed it down to either the MAC5200 or the DeWalt D55146. I decided on the Makita because of the lower price and the oil lubricated pump. The reason oil lubrication was import...

It is more than a Sander, it grinds VERY well

It is more than a Sander, it grinds VERY well

07-09-2010 07:03 PM by GBrag | 7 comments »

I have had this model for more than 6 years. AND I have bought one for each of my grown sons as gifts. It is incredibly versatile. If fact I use mine for grinding MORE than sanding. My (now 87 year old) dad made me a gift of this way back when then supplied me with zirconium belts made by another more professional vendor. He has a sharpening service and works a few hours a week doing sharpening for hardware stores in his area. He has an older Delta version, which is built a bit better quality...
