Bosch 1297DK

1966 days ago by bensaw | 5 comments »

I picked up this sander last night at Lowe’s for $52. Seemed a little sturdier than the bargain basement ones from Black and Decker and Skil. The sander seemed stable and was coformtable in my hand so I brought it home. The ROS20VSK from Bosch already has a review here on Lumberjocks. In fact, that review is what sealed the deal when I was at the store. I wanted to see if the experience of this sander would be the same as the ROS20VSK. I don’t know the relationship between the ...

Outstanding Low-Profile JigSaw

Outstanding Low-Profile JigSaw

1130 days ago by TheDane | 5 comments »

Both of my 20+ year old jigsaws bit the dust, so I trundled off to Menards to scope out a replacement. I spotted this saw on sale ($84.95 … Rockwell’s MSRP is $149.99). Nobody on LJ’s had any experience with this saw ( http://lumberjocks.com/topics/27668 ), so I decided to take the leap (Menards has a pretty good return policy). I had about $80 in rebate coupons, so it was an easy purchase. Full disclosure: I have always hated jigsaws (hard to control, hard to get straigh...

I like this site so far, so why not try my hand at a review… As you can see from the picture I have used this blade…for a little more than 2 years. Every thing that can be said about forrest blades applies here. Expensive…Yes, I paid $340. Precision machining… Yes, the brazing is very, dare i say, sexy. Quality…Yes Top level c-4 superhard carbide. Flat bottoms and square walls. VERY. Durable, havn’t sharpened it yet, and don’t plan to ...

After my first impressions post which many of you confused with my over all judging of the tool I could wait and more. I grabbed some Walnut and started to make a box. I deiced to not do anything elaborate and use no layout tools but my pencil a 2ft ruler and this little guy.First off I used the triangle to set my saw blade. I put it up on the table and cranked my blade into 45 degrees up againest the triangle. I then put on a digital angle reader and it was dead at 45.I then cut all my parts...

Wixey WR 550  - Excellent addition to an old 15" Planer

Wixey WR 550 - Excellent addition to an old 15" Planer

1009 days ago by jwisbey | 5 comments »

I recently installed a Wixey WR 550 digital readout to a 20 year old Bridgewood BW15P 15” planer. I purchased it from Amazon for $79 dollars. The contents were well packed in the box. The reason I purchased this readout was due to the various options for installation on a machine. With my planer being so old, I wasn’t sure if I could find a digital readout for it. The installation took about 20 minutes, with most of the time determining where the best place to install it wa...

Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems of Wood & Light

Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems of Wood & Light

1386 days ago by Alan | 5 comments »

I just finished reading David Mathias book Greene & Greene Furniture: Poems of Wood & Light. This is the 1st book I’ve read on Greene and Greene and really enjoyed it. Great pictures and great info and for me I felt it was great value for the cost of the book. I won’t go much into it as Todd Clippinger did a great write up. http://lumberjocks.com/toddc/blog/17691

NEW VACUUM

NEW VACUUM

2191 days ago by John Gray | 5 comments »

I purchased this vacuum about a month ago and it has been used ALOT. If has become a favorite tool, it’s so handy to use with the long hose. I also purchased the Ridgid Hepa filter – Model VF6000 which is washable. Filters 99.97% of particles as small as .3 mirons. Now the shop is much cleaner because the 22’ hose lets me go directly to the tool instead of having to move the big and cumbersome Craftsman around the shop, the Craftsman is now dedicated to the table saw unt...

Milescraft push stick kit

Milescraft push stick kit

1669 days ago by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the milescraft push stick kit. In episode 22 I built a push stick and that worked pretty good but I always had a hard time getting the wood to go straight against the fence. I got this push stick kit from milescraft .You get a depth gauge and a base with the push stick. The way it is designed you have a lot downward pressure which helps to control the wood much better then the one I used to use.

Starrett Protractor Angle Finder

Starrett Protractor Angle Finder

1007 days ago by cajunpen | 5 comments »

I’ve had this tool since last Christmas. I received it as a gift from my oldest Son and Daughter-in-Law. I just recently started using it on my Table Saw and Miter Saw for setting angles for various cuts. It have found it to be almost indispensable. I’ve got the Wixey digital angle finder also – but for some reason I like the Starrett better. If you get the change to get one – you won’t go wrong. Also great for doing trim work, if you need to cut a miter, t...

I wouldn't bet any money on this horse at the track...

558 days ago by JohnnySplinterfinger | 5 comments »

I was so excited to try making a picture frame for an old mirror I etched a long time ago… until I got this disaster of a clamp. Pros: Nylon band is an easy to see day-glow orange. Solid easy to grip handle Quick release tabs on either side makes it easy to size the band accordingly Really long band – like 15’ long. A bit large for a 12×12 picture frame, but I’m sure for an odd shaped item it would come in handy. Cons: Has a little notch (for la...
