Whiteside Router Inlay Kit

Whiteside Router Inlay Kit

07-02-2011 07:36 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I could not be more satisfied with this inlay kit from Whiteside. I have read the complaints about other brands, how they are tough to center. Rest assured, the Whiteside comes with a 1/4” centering pin. The bit is a standard 1/4” shank – no reducer sleeve to mess with. The bit is a solid carbide down spiral cutter. It is sharp and cuts cleanly in oak and walnut. The bit also comes with a protective case – a nice touch. I have read reviews of other brands that ...

“This is awesome,” said host John Palanca, on an episode of DIY Network’s “Under Construction.” “It’s a great concept, great idea that is well thought out by a carpenter. Half the job on a jobsite is setting up and this is already set up for you.”

Pretty Good Drill Press

Pretty Good Drill Press

01-20-2010 02:49 AM by funchuck | 5 comments »

Bought this from Lowes a few years ago. I don’t remember the exact price, but it was less than $100. This is a benchtop model and it has a laser sight that works very well. This is a feature that I like a lot. To change the speed, I need to open the top and change the belt to one of the other pulleys. A nice touch is that there is a drawer on the base that can be used to hold the chuck, as well as other tools for servicing the machine. One limitation of this drill press is...

Huge Table and Easy Blade Changes

Huge Table and Easy Blade Changes

11-09-2011 06:00 PM by Kelen | 5 comments »

As a disclaimer, I am far from being a seasoned and proficient user of a scroll saw. I’ve cut out a few things in my day but have not embarked on any detailed fret work or intarsia design work. A majority of my projects have centered on simple wooden cutouts of letters, patterns, and a few animal puzzles. I view my scroll saw as more of a complement to my workshop and one of those tools that are fun to play with when I have some time. I have to be in the scrolling mindset though else I qu...

I have been wanting to purchase or at least use one of these for a while now. I went to the Woodcraft Octoberfest, they had a demo station for the whole set, and a discount. I tried them and decided this would work very well for the inside of the lamp shades I am making as Christmas presents this year. If it weren’t for that project I would never have been able to pull the trigger on such a pricey tool. I am impressed, even when I did have catches, there was no real damage done to t...

Had this saw three months

Had this saw three months

09-19-2012 01:22 PM by Howie | 5 comments »

I had this saw for three months now. It replaced a Ridgid 3650 which served me well. I had been looking at cabinet style saws for a while. I got up one morning and had an email from Woodcrafters that they had this saw for $300.00 off. They only had two(one in the crate,one floor display. I got the one in the crate.(I paid $899.00)Set up was easy(I did it all myself) Originally I put the stock fence on it and I feel that fence was adequate however thru the generosity of my son, I have replaced...

The Clifton Multiplane

The Clifton Multiplane

07-31-2008 09:36 PM by lethentymill | 5 comments »

A new Multiplane is quite an investment – when I started this series of projects five years ago I was still under the spell of this tool and Stanley still had a couple of cheaper alternatives which could be recommended for grooving and cutting dados.Five years on (running evening classes and producing the home learning course), how do I feel about them? The only successor to the Stanley/Record models that I knew was the Clifton – I have three old Stanleys and had one new Clifton; it was th...

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

11-10-2011 04:51 PM by WoodworkGuy | 5 comments »

I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included). It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient...

BIG surprise in a little kit!

BIG surprise in a little kit!

Some friends wanted to update their kitchen by refinishing their oak cabinets.They asked me about the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformation product.To say the least I was skeptical and nervous.I didn’t want to “paint” over good solid oak.I didn’t want to mess up their cabinets.But they were willing to give it a try and my motto is “You live here so what you say is what you get.” They picked their color and off we went. The system itself is very easy if you ha...
