Aluminium 4" Box Clamp Review

Aluminium 4" Box Clamp Review

10-10-2014 07:39 PM by timbertailor | 7 comments »

I am old school, so buying metal tools that once were standard, everyday commodities, seems to be something that has lived with me as I have grown over the years. I seem to appreciate metal tools more and more every day( in this day and age of injected, molded plastic, disposable tools and appliances made in an Asian country that American company’s can not compete with) that are made state side. I put off buying these for many years and struggled through the process of assembly and g...

Trend 60T Saw Blade / Trend Blade & Bit Cleaner- I LIKE IT!

Trend 60T Saw Blade / Trend Blade & Bit Cleaner- I LIKE IT!

12-03-2011 01:19 AM by StumpyNubs | 7 comments »

I’m an impulse buyer. Throw something on an end cap with a bright sign on it and it’s in my shopping cart faster that you can say “my wife is going to be cheesed off…” So I only had to walk past this deal at Woodcraft before I was ready to pull out my wallet. It’s a 60 tooth, ATB fine finish blade by Trend. The regular price is $60, which is the usual range for a good quality blade. (If you want premium, you have to go over a hundred). But the sale was f...

I recently purchased this little jewel off Craigslist for $50 (retail $115). This is the low angle version 102, not the standard angle 103. The seller had been a product mgr for Woodcraft back in the ‘80’s, and had acquired the plane then. It had not seen much use – I don’t think it had even been honed. I don’t think it would have worked all that well as there were raised areas at the rear corners of the mouth, possibly from excessive force in use (dull blade?) o...

Serious upgrade

Serious upgrade

10-18-2015 12:20 AM by Willowlane | 7 comments »

Purchased this at the PA location during their going out of business sale. The retail price was $545 they sold it to me for $475 since they were clearing out the store. In the past I used a craftsman 10”. This new saw has plenty of power. It is covered in grease and assembly took about an hour. I can’t speak for the factory blade as I replaced it with a Timberwof blade. Cuts are clean and fence & table are sturdy and square. The only complaint I have is how difficu...

a decent starter machine

This year there have been a small rash of random YouTube videos and articles regarding the Harbor Freight Saw Mill with 301cc Gas Engine that they offer -sometimes at a ridiculously low price if you catch the sales and coupons. Yes there ARE bigger, better mills out there. Maybe for a lot less than the $1680 I spent on mine, if you managed to build it yourself. I didn’t have the time to do so, nor all of the parts on hand just yet to build my own with all sorts of fancy-shmancynes...

3M Random Orbital Sander - Elite Series 28498, Air-Powered, Non-Vacuum, 5 Inch

Most of the time I write a review of a product after I give it a period of time to break or at least after a couple of extensive projects. I’ve decided to review this one after about two hours of use. Just wanted to as I was impressed. I’ll be back if things should go south over time. My Bosch sander, which I really liked, bit the dust a bit to soon for my tastes. It was a really good electric sander that had low vibration and worked well over the past three years. Since I&#...

Plywood Blade cuts cleanly

Plywood Blade cuts cleanly

12-04-2011 12:23 AM by HamS | 7 comments »

I installed this blade and made a few test cuts on my saw before starting to cut the birch veneer plywood I am making my laundry cabinets from. I posted three photos: the first the before image of a cut made with my existing general purpose blade in the table saw. The good side was nice and clean but there was significant chipping and tearout of the down side. Picture two is the same piece cut with the new blade. There is a small amount of chipping, but it is much improved. The top side ...

Good, Better, BesseyA Look at the Current Bessey Parallel Clamp LineupLooking at parallel clamps side-by-side, some features are instantly apparent. Bar size, jaw surface area, and handle diameter are all key to clamp performance. The handle material made a difference in my testing as well. The UniClamp is the smallest parallel clamp, with a lightweight bar to match. The jaw faces are small compared to other clamps in this class, but compare favorably to “F” style clamps. The handle di...

A new twist on an old favorite!

A new twist on an old favorite!

We all know and love WD-40 for different applications. Well, the new version with the Smart Straw has a new use that you probably did not know about. If you pull off the sraw the opening is the perfect size for those spray can nozzles! Recently, the nozzle of my spray can of glue that I use to affix my patterns to my scroll saw stock got clogged with glue. That meant that I had to soak it in solvent and clear the orfice. look at the second picture above and you can see a spray can nozz...
