Handmade Wooden Hand Plane Sets

Handmade Wooden Hand Plane Sets

09-19-2014 08:12 PM by Dennis Zongker | 6 comments »

When I first received the box with a set of handplanes. I was quite impressed with their clean and crisp design also with the marquetry emblem on the side really adds to the overall appearance. I have been waiting to write a review until after I had a chance to use them on a real project. So I used the planes while working my next box, which is made out of sold Wenge, and anybody that has worked with wenge they know it is very hard and brittle. The completed set comes with: one utility pla...

So far....What a Disappointment.

So far....What a Disappointment.

11-01-2010 05:04 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 6 comments »

About near two decades ago, I purchased a Dowel-it 1000 which I’ve used almost on every other project.It was made in USA and 100% accurate. And it’s held up to a half a dozen drops and what have you with just slight calibration after all these years. Awesome jig. Behold the new so called USA made dowel-it 2100. it has a 6 inch capacity and Two removable bushing screws with 1/4”, 5/16”, 3/8” sizes two each. and the 7/16 and 1/2 are permanent. I purchased this for a pro...

Great Tool for some tasks

Great Tool for some tasks

02-26-2015 03:37 PM by OnhillWW | 6 comments »

I have been using my Flatmaster drum sander (http://stockroomsupply.ca/shop/drum-sanders/18-flatmaster.html) for 2 years now and thought that I had something yet to add to the previous reviews for this product. Set-up:I purchased my Flatmaster complete with the metal top sans the motor; married it with a NIB – OS Dayton motor. Assembly and motor installation / setup was straight forward and easy enough. That said I had interference between the belt and my housing, the opening in the h...

Great Calipers

Great Calipers

03-21-2015 05:34 AM by B4B | 6 comments »

I got this caliper some time ago, but have not had a chance to put it to use. Well during my table saw rebuild project I put it to use. I bought this based on the name, and the reviews other folks have provided for other wixey measuring devices (planer, table saw, etc) so I decided to give this a go. Overall I’m impressed with this, and would definitely recommend it, if you need a set of calipers. I used it to measure the bearings, the overall height, diameter, as well as the bore...

Rockwell Model 28-200 14inch Bandsaw

Recently acquired this Bandsaw at an Estate sale for $40. It is missing the top cover, fence bar and the circle metal plate insert. It’s been quite the work horse for resawing Ash wood.

safety glasses with 3x magnification lens

safety glasses with 3x magnification lens

08-17-2013 12:35 AM by Holbs | 6 comments »

while cruising through my local woodworking source store, I was in need of safety glasses to use in the work shop to replace my more bulkier goggles. Up popped these guys. What’s interesting is that the sub-lens (whatever they are called?) are 3x magnification. Handy as I am starting to have issues seeing things upclose. Figured, other LJ’s would be interested in something like this as well.Official title: CatEyesSG-AF-MAG3.0Diopter Anti-Fog$6.99 They also have 1.5x and ...

It has taken me a few weeks but I have finally got my new planer and jointer all adjusted and running. I ran about 30 bf a cherry through them for a project I am working on. This is the first Grizzly purchase that I have made and I will definitely look at Grizzly when I go to upgrade my 9” crapsman band saw that I got for $35 on Craig’s list.The fit and finish we about what I expected. I took about 5 minutes to file the sharp edges and scrape a few drops of paint off the jointer fenc...

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface:  Evaluation and Testing

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface: Evaluation and Testing

09-27-2012 05:37 PM by djg | 6 comments »

The DC1100 PRO (with Serial Interface) is a true laser particle counter with the ability to count particulate mater suspended the air. There are two size ranges for the PRO model: between 0.5 and 2.5 microns, and greater than 2.5 microns. Several models are available but I felt that for a woodworking shop the stuff less than 2.5 microns was the most important particulate to measure since it is probably the most dangerous. This was purchased through a group buy offered by the Canadian woo...
