Very nice saw for the price

Very nice saw for the price

02-04-2011 03:03 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 5 comments »

This is a well made, low cost handsaw that I use for cutting joinery. I think it was a little over $30 at Woodcraft. The handle is beech and the top is brass, the blade is rigid and very sharp. I am new to the world of handsaws other than the ripsaws sold at the big box stores so this was a big step up for me. I think this brand is worth looking into for future purchases.

Not impressed with this vise

Not impressed with this vise

02-12-2008 05:19 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 5 comments »

I have bought several products from Lee Valley/Veritras, and I have been very happy with them. So, I expected a lot from them, when I bought this vise. For what I paid for this bench vise, I’m not that impressed. I took the picture for this review showing how the handles can get out of alignment. The problem is that the set-screws that lock the large screw and handle together are undersized. The use of set-screws I feel is the real flaw. The friction from a couple set-screws isn&#...

Hi All, ‘Picked up this 734 dewalt last week at Lowes. They had just dropped the price down to $399. I know you can get it for less at other stores on line but the shippng is outrageous so…. I have used other people’s planers….and this 734 is the best yet. It is a three knife system and gives a very smooth surface but the best feature is it’s 4 post hold down on the blades. The knife also has a a lock.. I plane short boards due to the size of my shop….w...

Works on Miter Saws and Biscuit Joiners

Works on Miter Saws and Biscuit Joiners

08-17-2012 05:05 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

Great product!Helps corral the dust at the miter saw (2-1/4” hose on a 12” Dewalt compound miter).This switch completely changed the performance of my Dewalt biscuit joiner. Previously, the joiner would clog with sawdust, which required disassembly to clear. Also the chips would fly in your face. Now the vacuum is convienent to use, and I never see a single chip when biscuit joining. I use the small flexible shop vac hose from Woodcraft for the biscuit joiner.It works great.

Great miter saw stand, if you can't have yours set up all the time.

I bought this Ryobi Miter Saw stand a few months ago and I love it. The picture shows it set up, but the legs will fold in and you can carry it around or for storage. I don’t have enough room to have a saw set up all the time and I have to set my saw up outside to cut for now. For the first time use, you have to attach the cross “sleds” or feet if you will, then attach the saw and the feet to the cross bars. It’s best to tilt the front towards you and then let the wei...

Earlex SS77 Steam Generator

Earlex SS77 Steam Generator

01-17-2013 07:01 PM by Jeff Waggoner | 5 comments »

We bought the Earlex Steam Generator at WIA this year and I could not be happier. This was our first experience with steam bending and it was nice to have something that just worked straight out of the box with no hassle and little setup. I made a steam box out of 6” PVC and used the supplied connector. We were up and running in about 30 minutes. We still have a lot to learn about bending wood as you can see here Steambending Fail! and Steambending Success! I would like to point out that non...

Wixey WR525 Remote Digital Readout

Wixey WR525 Remote Digital Readout

07-21-2014 10:42 AM by OakHill | 5 comments »

This is a great addition for your drill press. I first came across the wixey digital readout in an article in Woodsmith December 2008 No. 180 issue, and saved it in my drill press file. Then after agonizing over set ups for months I finally decided to buy the unit. The article does provide some basic ideas to attach components to you drill press. I have had it for several years and it has worked great. The only problem I had was operator error! The battery drains if you forget to...

Clamps for glue edge boards

Clamps for glue edge boards

06-20-2013 09:48 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

I do a lot of glue edge board glue-ups and was looking for a better and faster clamping system. My old one required four hand clamps and 4 cauls and did a fine job but the set up was very time consuming. After receiving some money for father’s day, I decided to give these a try. I must admit the guys at the local Rockler store were not helpful with any recommendations on the product. Also, at least my box came with NO instructions at all. Now I did have in mind what I wanted to accomplish ...

Nova 1624-44 Lathe Review

Nova 1624-44 Lathe Review

03-10-2009 05:47 AM by dmann | 5 comments »

Thanks go to Tim Dorcas for his thorough review on the 1624-44. It helped me a lot with my choice. Instead of rehashing Tim’s review I will outline anything I have discovered or observed since his review and highlight my likes/dislikes. I have had my eye on the 1624 for a while and I decided to buy because Woodcraft had them in stock and on sale this month. My Jet 1220 was on its way to a new home this morning thanks to Craigslist. My impressions after 4 days with the 1624: Ass...

What is Epoxy?The all knowing all seeing Wikipedia ’Epoxy is a copolymer; that is, it is formed from two different chemicals. These are referred to as the “resin” and the “hardener”. The resin consists of monomers or short chain polymers with an epoxide group at either end. Most common epoxy resins are produced from a reaction between epichlorohydrin and bisphenol-A, though the latter may be replaced by similar chemicals. The hardener consists of polyamine mon...
