I had a cheaper version of this saw and the quick release clamp broke. I figured I had bought all these stupid blades to fit the quick clamp so I bought another B/D of higher quality (the one being reviewed here) so I wouldn’t have this problem…..wrong. The new one broke the same way (quick clamp) so I stumbled upon this site trying to find a replacement for the broken quick clamp. You can find them for about $3…........................+$12 shipping. arrghhh

Quickley removes excess wood

Quickley removes excess wood

05-08-2010 04:42 AM by jerryo | 5 comments »

This plane fits in my hand like a glove and performs great. It is a wooden body plane with a thick iron which is very cambered. The iron was sharp right out of the box ready to use. The light weight of the plane has no adverse effects when planing a board. I tryed it out on a piece of wormy maple and it took thick scaloped shavings with ease planing diagonally to the grain. The planes main use is to remove large amounts of wood quickley. This will do the same job as a thickness planer, albeit...

Cheap, flexible, and accurate enough

I always loose tape measures. I buy another and work really hard to keep it in the same place then loose it. I dont know how its possible all the time. So i decided to go to harbor freight and buy a few of these then buy 1 good one and keep it in a special location (pain in the butt). I just use these for rough cutting and measuring stock. i dont use this if its under 1”. I work as an engineer as we use metric at work. I love having this thing at work. No one will ever steal it becau...

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

Sommerfield Cabinetmaking Set

01-16-2010 05:26 AM by closetguy | 5 comments »

There are 100 different ways to build cabinets. Everyone has their own method that works well for them, and there is really no wrong way as long as they are square and sturdy. The goal is to be able to build them as quickly as possible, without compromising quality. I’m in the middle of a large cabinet job and decided to take a break this afternoon to document this little bit set that I have found invaluable in making my cabinets. Sommerfield Tools has a lot of high quality router bits ...

Problems with adjusting the height of the cutter

Problems with adjusting the height of the cutter

08-31-2009 09:52 AM by velocette | 5 comments »

I have the 3 1/4 HP Triton router and over time have been reading the reviews and note the main complaint is the under the table adjustment. In Australia where the Triton company started there is a large range of wood working accessories. The Triton router table provided easy access to the ratchet winder and the fine adjuster, there is also a dust collector bucket that has two inputs one for the table and one for the router and the bucket is attached via another hose to a vacuum cleaner. I...

Another of my shop favorites

Another of my shop favorites

Accuracy, reliability, & quality; I received this a a Christmas present but have not had a lot of shop time until this fall. I love using this square on my projects and when setting up my machinery. The scale is very easy to read, the head slides easily along the length of the rule and it is about the easiest to put back on when you take it off as I sometimes do. Is it expensive? Yes, but I feel it’s worth every penny.

Bent Laminate Walnut Rocker

Bent Laminate Walnut Rocker

I recently saw some photos of a rocking chair designed and built by Jeff Miller of J. Miller Handcrafted Furniture.Jeff has been building and designing furniture for clients for about 25 years in Chicago. Jeff is also the reason I fell in love with designing and building fine furniture. I took a number of classes and worked as a part time apprentice with him for about 7 years. This walnut rocker is truly a masterpiece of his career in my mind. This rocker incorporates both solid and a sign...

Edge Detail Sanding Made Easy

Edge Detail Sanding Made Easy

05-10-2010 09:16 AM by dustynewt | 5 comments »

I don’t remember where I first saw these advertised, but I filed it in the back of my mind to try later. Well, I was getting some basic shop supplies from Klingspor and happened to remember them. This is the link to where I found them. I do a lot of small carvings, making keychains and pendants (see examples), and the small pieces can be fumblesome for my fat fingers to hand sand. These do not eliminate this, but go a long way to ease things, timewise. They reach in between my cuts a...

Dewalt DCD970KL review

Dewalt DCD970KL review

02-14-2011 05:00 PM by phtools | 5 comments »

I bought this drill to replace my Dewalt DC925, which fell off a roof and landed in a big nasty mud hole, I just figured the drill was toast and ordered a new one, saved the 925 for salvageable parts. The DCD950 and the DCD970 are the EXACT same drill except the clutch ring, which is black on the 950 and silver on the 970. The difference is the batteries that are included 950 has the XRPs and 970 has the new NANO’s(lithium-ion). OK, back to the comparison Pros of the DCD970/950 VS. the ...
