Knot-Tec Light Industrial Wood Repair Kit

Knot-Tec Light Industrial Wood Repair Kit

05-03-2012 07:21 AM by MaxFinnigan | 7 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...

You may never need these...

You may never need these...

But when there’s a need for ultra deep jaw clamps 12 inches nothing else will work.So, I put off buying these for a long time and sure enough I have a job at hand that needs these. @ 10 a piece you cant beat the price and quality.you could take the pin out and replace it with a handle but I see no need to that.

K-body clamp extenders

K-body clamp extenders

11-03-2008 07:09 PM by dsb1829 | 7 comments »

I picked up a set of the K-body clamp extenders a couple months back from Woodcraft. I had a table project coming up and knew that clamping the long aprons would require clamps in excess of the 50 inchers that I had. I was initially impressed by the solid construction of these. Honestly I think you would get back near half of the price in scrap value on the billet. The bolts are massive. The extrusion is formed to match the contours of the steel rails of the K-body clamps. Well last n...

Upgrade your pen turning

Upgrade your pen turning

06-23-2010 05:39 AM by Sawdust2 | 7 comments »

There are a number of pen turners like me on LJ. Actually, most are better.But I’ve lately noticed that the edges of my blanks are just not quite good enough. So I searched around and found John Goodiin. http://www.penturnersproducts.com/ John engineers his bushings to a greater tolerance than those we get from Rockler, Woodcraft, PSI, etc. Plus you will be turning between centers and not on a mandrel. That’s going to be the biggest leap in your quality. So if your ski...

Accurate to within 1/128"

Accurate to within 1/128"

I took a chance on a $29 digital caliper from Rockler. Having used other high quality caliper and micrometers before, I didn’t think it possible to buy a quality unit for that price. I was wrong, and this unit rocks. It has readouts in decimal inches, decimal mm, and fractional inches. It provides surfaces for inside, outside and depth measurement. I have used it frequently over the last several weeks and I always keep it near by when doing setups.

Lathe upgrade

Lathe upgrade

02-16-2010 05:43 PM by Jarrhead | 7 comments »

I recently decided to upgrade my lathe from the Delta midi-lathe I began turning on. I spent a lot of time researching which lathes were available on the market. Some of the most helpful information was found right here on Lumberjocks.com. Thank you to all who took the time to share your viewpoints and experiences. It made my decision easier. I settled on the Nova DVR XP, but I must say that it was not my first choice. My first choice was the Powermatic 3520B. I had to make some compro...

Real smooth and Bright Finish

Real smooth and Bright Finish

11-09-2014 09:01 PM by Duckster | 7 comments »

I have been using the combination of these two products for the last few months. I gave both a 5 star rating as they have not failed since I started using them.I put 2 coats of the sealant, then I sand it with 400 grit sandpaper to smooth it. I then put 3 light coats of the lacquer and then I sand it again with 400 grit.I am picky about the finish I put on my projects, but I know from experience that shine sells!I then apply 12 more coats of the lacquer, I know that sounds like a lot but putt...

Two more cents on the Griz 453Z

Two more cents on the Griz 453Z

06-26-2010 04:15 AM by alnandy | 7 comments »

Just got mine in earlier this week. I’d been using a Delta 13” planer, which was doing a very good job. However, Delta got bought out and no longer produces this planer, so parts will be a problem in the future. Also, I’ve got several hundred board feet of curly maple to work through, and that would overwhelm the Delta. So, I bought the Grizzly. My experience was exactly the same as the previous review, except that my machine arrive without problems. The caster mechani...

Pricey but excellent

Pricey but excellent

03-09-2014 12:54 AM by Purrmaster | 7 comments »

This review is for the SawStop contractor’s saw equipped with the 36” inch steel rails and “T-glide” fence. And eventually with the cast iron wings. As a preface let me say that I know that SawStop is controversial among woodworkers. This review is not an argument for or against the SawStop safety system. This review concentrates on its qualities as a table saw, not the safety brake. I’ve had this saw for over a year now and I’ve been extremely ple...
