Grngate Gates Work Great

Grngate Gates Work Great

04-10-2017 07:21 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Check out my video review on Youtube…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ic9A73Fb_Y Installing this Grngate starter system was amazingly simple. If you can plug in a phone, you can install this system. Of course you have to wire the system controller, but that’s nothing more than stripping a few wires, and screwing the wires to a terminal block. Actually I sacrificed a 240v extension cord so I could keep my dust collectors cord intact, and that was a good solution for me. Th...

If you want to fall in love with furnituremaking - read this book!

06-03-2008 06:19 PM by Loren | 7 comments »

I read this book when I was just starting out. It isa spiritual revelation in terms of what it means to work with wood – and do it well. It’s not a book of plans and there isn’t enough informationin here to teach you how to build anything if you don’thave any skills. This book (and Krenov’s others) are about Feelings. Theyare about discovering the wood and discovering a designprocess that produces furniture that is finely proportionedand intimate –...

can't do without, but could be better

can't do without, but could be better

09-12-2010 11:25 AM by Greedo | 7 comments »

i saw this one being sold in a “dual pack” along with the GSR 10,8 drill driver for an interesting price where you basically get the GSR almost for free, but with only 2 batteries for both. (those are the european names)and yesterday i had my first “on site job” and i simply could not have done the job without this tool as i had to remove screws from inside tight boxes. it comes in a soft mallet with 2 bits wich i thought was another gadget i would never use, but it...

WoodRiver #92 Medium Shoulder Plane

WoodRiver #92 Medium Shoulder Plane

12-27-2013 03:56 PM by woodmaker | 7 comments »

Have I mentioned I have the best wife in the world! Found this under the Xmas treel. What a beauty, feels good in the hand, nice heft to it. Will have to research how to prep it for use and the sharpening angle etc.. More review will be added later, but see no reason not to do 5 stars. I pulled it apart and put it ack together and no pieces were broken/cracked etc. Hmm, I’ll have to cut some dado’s and tennons so I can use it. LOL! Like i need an excuse.

Making wood flowers with Ebook "Forever Flowers""

Making wood flowers with Ebook "Forever Flowers""

02-14-2009 04:53 AM by Bob Collins | 7 comments »

I downloaded this eBook about 10 months ago after asking how these flowers were made, I had imagined that wood chips from previous carvings projects were collected and glued together. I was soon directed towww.TheCarversCorner.com and for a well spend $5.00 I downloaded the ebook straight to my computer. After reading the easy to follow instructions, I went out and collected some suckers from a Poplar tree which were easy to whittle while reasonably green. I didn’t have any c...

Dewalt tracksaw

Dewalt tracksaw

02-25-2012 05:40 AM by Mitch | 7 comments »

I have been drooling over the thought of owning a tracksaw for a few years now, and i finally broke down and bought one a couple days ago! I have always been the type to wait and buy a tool when i need to put it right to work. I am working on a big trophy/show case job right now and wanted to make all the backs of these cases out of 3/4” oak plywood in order to have some good meat there to mount all the adjustible shelf tracking too. I really didnt want to wrestle all these sheets (a...

HTC 37" x 31" Folding Roller Outfeed Table for Table Saws - HOR-1038U

HTC 37" x 31" Folding Roller Outfeed Table for Table Saws - HOR-1038U

12-28-2013 07:01 AM by darthford | 7 comments »

My 3 car garage is limited on space due to multiple machines and the tractor/lawn equipment eating up one whole bay so I decided to go with this fold down roller outfeed table on my new Grizzly 12” G0696X table saw. The concept works perfectly for me, its attached to the saw so its mobile, setup takes 5 seconds, love that. Lets take a picture tour and I’ll offer some additional comments. Packing FAIL but thankfully no damage, you can see some of the rollers spilled out into the...

Wolfcraft master 200 portable worktable (MaFe review)

09-15-2010 11:02 PM by mafe | 7 comments »

Wolfcraft master 200 portable worktableTesting it on a simple tool box build in Paris… Ok The story goes that my fiancé lives in Paris (Caroline – she is French), and a genuine Lumber Jerk needs a place to hammer, even when he is there. So of to the beloved BHV in the center of Paris, they have a Wolfcraft 200 at a price of 50 Euro.And it can be brought home on my unisex bicycle, even I must admit the Paris traffic and a load like this are a little like oil and water. Wolfcraft maste...

Grizzly G0582 24: Wide Belt Sander

Grizzly G0582 24: Wide Belt Sander

07-03-2014 02:10 PM by BoardSMITH | 7 comments »

After two months of hard use I feel somewhat qualified to write a decent review. So here goes. Crating and packing – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Delivery – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Instruction manual – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Fit and finish, Blah, blah, blah, etc… Now that all the fluff is out of the way. I purchased a Grizzly wide belt sander because I was unable to find another on the market of that size. My budget would handle a 24̶...

Works like a charm

Works like a charm

03-29-2016 01:32 AM by mummykicks | 7 comments »

I’m not a plane fanatic like some, and in fact this is my first. I was having trouble controlling the dado depths on plywood sheets because of bowage and remembered seeing someone, somewhere using one of these things.Anyway, I used it on my last project and it made a world of difference.The adjustment wanders a bit, and by a bit I mean something like .005”-.01” on the depth, which is probably due to how I’m measuring it, but once it’s dialed in it works really we...
