Abranet Sanding Mesh

Abranet Sanding Mesh

03-25-2010 09:42 PM by Darell | 5 comments »

I thought I’d try this Abranet Sanding Mesh to sand my pen blanks. Sanding has always been the hated chore of my penmaking. The Abranet Sanding Mesh has made this task much easier. I cut a 1” strip off each of 5 grits and after 15 pens I’m still using the same pieces and they don’t show any signs of wearing out yet. This stuff is much, much easier to use that the old sandpaper strips I had before. I won’t be using the old stuff any more. Wish I’d boug...

Work well, annoying to adjust

I used two of these for my cross cut sled I just made. At 5.99 each, they looked like a good value. I was unable to find many reviews on line, so I figured I would give them a shot. The goodThey can be clamped down pretty tight to hold the piece in placeThey are inexpensive (~6.00)Everything turns well on the bolt. No stripping The BadI don’t like the design. These have two locking mechanisms. There is a knurled knob at the bottom that locks the bolt to the track. After locked to ...

Great little nailer

Great little nailer

01-23-2008 03:10 AM by Roger Strautman | 5 comments »

This was a micro nailer that I bought in hopes of fastening trim on the very end of the piece without splitting and not just any trim but oak and it worked great. This 23 gauge nailer is very light weight and can shoot 1/2”- 1” headless pins so small that if you stain the piece you have to look very hard to even see the small spot of the head. The pins are sold in packets of 2600 form $7-$12. The only downfall that I have found with this gun is that it has no safety so one has to ...

Milescraft Model 1201 BasePlate / Bushing Set, boring but good.

I had to keep my stools in storage for over year after tearing down one shop then having a big delay in starting the new shop due to health issues. When I took all my stuff back out of storage I found I was missing (i.e. I lost) some little do-dads here and there. One of them was some of the accessory pieces to my router. How we got by without the internet I do not know, but after a little Google magic I had this product shipped to me and all was right with the world.

Best bandsaw upgrade in 15 years!

Best bandsaw upgrade in 15 years!

02-08-2012 02:35 AM by MedicineMan | 5 comments »

I have a 1990’s era Delta 14” bandsaw, and finally wore out the hand crank. Then I found the $19.00 crank offered by many sources. I have used it for about 5 years, then it wore out, locking the threads into the nut. This time I needed a fast fix and couldn’t take any chances, so I sprang for the $44.99 heavy duty tension crank I had seen on the Highland Hardware/Woodworking web site. It seemed kind of expensive, but I couldn’t find a source for the 3/8”-12 t...
