10-1/2 oz Warrington Pattern Hammer from Lee Valley—————————————————————————- My hammer collection has historically been limited to 20oz claw hammer and a couple of ball peens. My wife bought the claw hammer for my birthday early on in our marriage. The message was clear, “build me a house or break your thumbs trying”. Well, th...

Nice Palm Router

Nice Palm Router

06-21-2010 08:57 AM by Bob Kollman | 8 comments »

About a year and a half ago I bought this router for 37.00 scratch and dent at sears. This router is missing some of the features you’d find on the bosch, but for the majority of my work this particular model meets my needs. Mostly I use it for flush and trim cuts, I do lots of cuts on the band saw using templets, leaving enough materialfor this router to trim the remains. This router gets warm fast, but I have run this router for long periods with out burnout. This router is also grea...

Knot-Tec Light Industrial Wood Repair Kit

Knot-Tec Light Industrial Wood Repair Kit

05-03-2012 07:21 AM by MaxFinnigan | 8 comments »

I actually bought this kit to repair some marks we had in our hardwoods and it worked like a charm. I love having hardwood floors, but we have the tendency to drop things every now and again. The Knot-Tec kit made filling in the dents and scratches in our floor easy. One of my friends bought the Professional Kit and uses it for filling in knots in his homemade furniture pieces. I am hoping to get some pointers from him in the furniture building realm eventually. The kit comes with ever...

ACCIDENTAL, (DEFINITELY OFF-LABEL), SANDPAPER DISC CLEANER!

ACCIDENTAL, (DEFINITELY OFF-LABEL), SANDPAPER DISC CLEANER!

03-04-2014 11:22 PM by jeffwedekind | 8 comments »

I discovered this little gem of a use completely by accident one day. I had been sanding a lot of pine on my disc sander and the disc was completely gummed up with resin. It was shot! Or so I thought. As fate would have it, I needed to sand some finer parts, and I didn’t have another disc on hand. The closest place to get a new 12’’ disc is over 100 miles away, so I tried to figure out a way to get the disc back in action. I tried my trusty gum block, nothing. I tr...

So far, not real impressed with the whole new Grizzly lathe thing. To began with, it was supposed to come to Clarkston Wa, (300 miles from Seattle). Instead it was miss directed by Fedex and ended up in Denver CO. (900 miles the wrong way!) A week latter I get a beat up box, with a heavily scratched up lathe, ( all the blocking for securing it was broke lose). but as for the mechanical parts, it was or seem to be all in working order. I spent several hours, cleaning, leveling an...

using a stihl 660 cutting down hardwood trees

using a stihl 660 cutting down hardwood trees

03-07-2013 09:19 PM by Harry Montana | 8 comments »

Hello, calling from Bolivia, I am reading the chainsaw reviews and for us working in the forest cutting down hardwood trees (ipe, massaranduba; I a mean the hardest of the hardest) there is one chainsaw suitable only which is Stihl 660. There is also Husqvarna but for some reason quality is less then Stihl. We buy each and every year at $980 here in Bolivia a Stihl 660 and its capacity is around 2000 trees per year, (average diameter of 20”), including cutting of the branches and lengthening ...

First of all, I want to say thanks for the responses to my forum topic http://lumberjocks.com/topics/17579I decided to give them a try because I love the size and feel of these chisels. Grizzly was fast to send them out. The only reason I did not give these chisels 5 stars is because they took a lot of work to flatten and sharpen. The third picture is the worst chisel of the bunch laying on my table saw. I did get it flat and sharpened though. I used the scary sharp method( glass and sand pap...

Drill Bits & Plug Cutters.

Drill Bits & Plug Cutters.

11-27-2010 05:50 PM by Ken90712 | 8 comments »

I had purchased these bits and cutters a few months ago and now that I have used them for a while I decided to post a review. I have purchased several items in the past from MLCS and so far have not been disappointed. Each set of bits come in a simple little wooden storage box which is a nice touch. So far both sets of bits have performed VERY WELL, and show no signs of wearing. The only drawback and the reason I gave it a 4 stars rating is the box the tapered bits come in. They could of h...

Leigh's Mortice and Tennon Jig

Leigh's Mortice and Tennon Jig

05-06-2012 08:36 AM by thedude50 | 8 comments »

The mortise and tenon joint is a staple of woodworking. Creating them can pose a few challenges. Building a custom jig with the size and orientation of the joints is fine if you only need a single size and shape. But if you find yourself making several jigs to cover the varied m&t joints in even a single project then a variable jig is something you should consider. The Leigh Jigs Super FMT Mortise and Tenon jig is a very nice answer to this challenge. The joints are created by using an...

Cheap Lathe Conversion

Cheap Lathe Conversion

03-01-2008 03:08 AM by BillyUP | 8 comments »

There was a yard sale ad that said: “Lathe with tools, $40”, so I hustled right out.I found a “Junk” French or Canadian lathe that is only good for turning Spindle work, but came with about $300 worth of new Craftsman tools. The tools were an assortment of things I did not have.I converted the lathe to a “Buffing machine”, using a threaded rod that is screwed into two turned wood blocks. I will be adding more buffing wheels by simply moving these two alon...
