Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

01-12-2014 02:24 AM by tturner | 6 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...

Great Deal

Great Deal

06-30-2008 03:17 PM by DannyBoy | 6 comments »

After being overly frustrated with the Craftsman router that I started out with (which still makes a good router for my router table), I finally broke down and bought this one this last weekend. I intended on picking up the Bosch combo at Lowes, but this one was on sale and I’m price minded to a fault. However, I can’t see how I could have made a better decision. The router is solid. 100%. I’ve not had the luxury of working with a mid-grade router like this before, bu...

Don't Eat this cookie,

Don't Eat this cookie,

I just got a set of these, and I was pretty surprised. I was a little hesitant to shell out $11 bucks for a glorified piece of wood but they work pretty good. They really remind me of a router mat that I bought a few years ago, they have the same type of non slip surface. You could probably make some from those drawer liners or non slip rug liners. But for me as busy as I am I would rather just buy them and keep going then stop and make them. Pretty cool though, I have to admit I will pr...

Tomz Double Shaft Knife Massager

I’ve been using this about 10 days now. I think that’s enough for an opinion. I should have bought this a long time ago. It just does what he says it does. The first 2 pics show what comes in the box. A 1200 grit diamond wheel, a 600 grit diamond wheel, leather strop wheel,Tormek paste, shop rags, a pad to keep it from scooting, instructions, and a sticker. I should give the sticker to my granddaughter, she loves stickers. Wait a minute, that might come back to haunt me. It&...

Looks good so far

Looks good so far

I’m giving this five stars for now with the disclaimer that I’ve only used it for a short while on one day so far. I will update this if any problems arise. I see some of the issues with the older models, but the Airshield Pro seems to have corrected some of those. For example it is very light. I saw some complaints on the older one being heavy. They also say the current battery will run all day but I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know. Here’s why I b...

Rockler's remarkable red rubber sanding block

Rockler's remarkable red rubber sanding block

03-13-2012 06:37 AM by DHS | 6 comments »

I purchased a sanding block for the first time yesterday. I had taken my mother to lunch on Sunday afternoon and then to reward myself for this good deed I visited the local Rockler Woodworking store and browsed the discount racks. I bought some sanding disks, a quart of Titebond III, some space balls, and then just for the heck of it, I purchased a rubber sanding block for $3.99. What a wonderful device. I don’t know why I’ve never used one before. Perhaps it was my abrasive high-school...

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

01-13-2014 08:14 PM by brtech | 6 comments »

This insert is made by ColliBeck and available direct (via Ebay) or through Infinity. I purchased it from Infinity. The basic idea here is that it’s a CNC machined plate with a replaceable wooden insert. You can swap inserts in a minute or two, and either make your own, or buy them from Infinity. I have the newer version, which doesn’t use parts from the original Sawstop throat plate. The plate is a beast. Heavy, nicely machined, nicely anodized aluminum. The inserts th...

(you can click the picture to go to Lee-Valley’s web site and read more if you so desire.) With Veritas I expect a good quality, mid-range tool and that’s exactly what I got. Like a kid at Christmas, I had to take a few swipes with it last night right out of the box. It did ok out of the box. Tonight I honed the blade and started getting her setup. The blade, the O1 version, was not as flat as I would have expected so I had to spend a good amount of time getting the back f...

Impulse purchase - seems ok but..

So in the question feed my addiction, I swung by Rockler. The protractor was on sale for $10. The sales guy told me that they are going to be on sale in the new flyer for $15. I’m kind of a sucker for measuring tools so I bought it. First impression – it is well made. The ruler moves smoothly and the tightening knob works well. The display is easily readable. It shows .1 degree measurements. Probably the biggest drawback is how you calibrate it. As you can see in the pict...

Sanding a mirror surface

Sanding a mirror surface

06-26-2011 04:24 AM by gko | 6 comments »

Bosch 1/2 sheet sander After using 1/4 sheet sanders or random orbit sanders on my table tops I usually end up with a bit of a ripple when I varnish or lacquer the top. I have a planer but even after planing I always seem to have these slight ripples after sanding. In Flexner’s book he uses what looks like a half sheet sander (can’t confirm, a WC owner borrowed my book I bought from him after telling him how good it was) and a carpenter friend said he really liked the 1/2 sheet Bosch so ...
