(sorry for the sideways pic) so my wife and i have an agreement in the kitchen – when i cook, she cleans, and when she cooks she cleans… same goes for painting and finishing; as a result i have been encouraged to switch to water based products for easier (for her) cleanup. hey, it’s a sweet deal, so i’ll give it a shot. for my daughter’s nightstand, she insisted on black (yuck); i didn’t want to paint it, i wanted an opaque or near-opaque stain ...

Good Drill Press for $70

Good Drill Press for $70

01-22-2015 12:03 AM by edwood1975 | 6 comments »

If your on a budget then this is the press for you here are some pros and cons… Pros:1. Light is a great feature especially when trying to position a brad point on your workpiece2 Small enough to fit under a bench at 23” high3 Cast iron base and shelf makes it extremely sturdy but a con appears when trying to move and position the 6×6” shelf it’s very heavy4. Overall I like it Cons:1. Hard to position wood on shelf as its too small( that’s why I buil...

Just finished hanging it....

Well my new Grizzly G5072 air filter showed up today and I just finished hanging it.Packaging was in real good shape and the unit itself seems really solid so does the overall quality.I was using a Performax from Menards, but it just was not cutting it. I still had a lot of dust throughout my shop (2 car garage).With the Grizzly I should have a turnover rate of about 20/hr vs the 7/hr with the Performax. The Grizzly is really quite and it is definitely moving a whole bunch of air. You can ...

Not the worst, but...

Not the worst, but...

Okay, I realized when I spent $99 on a table saw that I would be getting what I payed for, but I was just starting out and really needed something. I picked up a decent blade for it and hoped for the best. Power: none. It can barely cut a 2” x 4” through the “2” side, don’t even bet on the “4” side. Reliability: Well it hasn’t broken on me yet, but I lost the arbor wrench and without it I can’t change the blade. If you get one, do...

... and now I can't imagine drilling large holes without it

09-07-2010 03:24 PM by John | 6 comments »

I bought this a year or more ago and it sat on the shelf. This past weekend I had to drill several 2” + holes with forstner bits which usually means lots of shallow cuts and smoke and heat. I just happened to notice this can on the shelf, which I had pretty much forgotten about. This lube led to no smoke and I could take deeper “cuts” – e.g. 3/4” ply in maybe 4 plunges instead of 6-8 without. I also had a lot of pocket holes to drill this weekend and I ...

Specialized plane that has a lot of uses

Specialized plane that has a lot of uses

05-31-2008 07:49 AM by ShannonRogers | 6 comments »

I got a great deal on the set of these on ebay, but after using them on my new countertop and router table to trim edge banding I would definately pay full price in a heartbeat. These use the same thick iron and easy adjustment as all the other bevel up planes in the Veritas line. I followed the set up instructions included and was making shavings in just a few moments. After using the set screws to dial in the fit, I pulled out the iron and honed it up to 8000. The back of the iron was a...

Metabo PowerMaxx

This little 4.8 volt drill/driver is fast becoming my go-to tool. A true pocket-drill, it has more torque than you can imagine, and comes with 2 batteries, a 90 degree adapter,a screw-on chuck, and case. While I wouldn’t want to screw an entire deck surface with(batteries charge overnight), it drives screws in hardwood very nicely, and is very compact. You just won’t believe the torque! Easily 5 stars! Purchased from Rocklers!

A big step up ( with a few nice extras)

A big step up ( with a few nice extras)

Good evening LJ’s, 1. It came with an air hose2. Dual couplings 3. Goodies, Goodies,Goodies A few more of the great features are that it is oil free No oil to maintain, the controls are up front and easy to use, moisture drain is easy to use and operate, and the air ratchet, impact gun, and hose seal the deal. Out of the box the finish is nice and the overall quality is great but where this excels at is with my HVLP gun Although it is labeled for occasional use with spray guns I don...

The best book on power-tool joinery

The best book on power-tool joinery

06-01-2008 07:57 PM by Loren | 6 comments »

I have a lot of woodworking books. About 60 of them. Yeung Chan’s book is one of the best and most practicalof them all. He shows several ways to make each jointso even with a modestly equipped shop you’ll be ableto make quality joints. Yeung’s jig designs are great too. They aren’t complicatedor hard to build and he explains how to make sure theyare accurate. Gary Rogowski also wrote some great books about making joints – but if you get just one get ...

I have had a set of the Lie-Nielsen Joinery floats for a few months now, and unbelievably i have even found uses for them.When i first saw these tools advertised on their site, I actually called my wife over , and showed her. Not from amazement or anything like that, but to tell her to never get them for me. Apparently she pays as much attention as i would to her new shoes, because just short weeks later they arrived. Smiling and being thankful, I put them all in the tool roll, and tossed ...
