Great value chisel set.Any woodworker will laugh at the state of sharpness of these. The packaging states `Sharpened & ready to use but a bit of sharpening on the oilstone got them to a razer egde. Product Description Marples Ms500 Soft Touch B/E Chisel Set 5 Metal striking cap allows use with a hammer, prolongs the life of the handle and prevents mushrooming. The soft touch handles are oil and water resistant to prevent slippage and to give improved comfort even during prolon...

A great little compressor at a very reasonable cost

A great little compressor at a very reasonable cost

08-10-2013 02:42 AM by Jofa | 7 comments »

For the past ten years I’ve been using a Harbor Freight, 21 gal. compressor and it’s served me well. In fact, I really didn’t take care of it and surprisingly it lasted as long as it did. I believe the original oil was in it. (yikes!) Of course, when I started my little business I started using the compressor on a regular basis and it started showing signs of failure. Blowing the breaker at startup, running slow and eventually not starting at all. I figured it was ti...

Flapping in the Breeze

Flapping in the Breeze

08-18-2008 12:13 AM by closetguy | 7 comments »

I make and sell a lot of cutting boards. 50% or more of the time involved is sanding so I am always looking for ways to cut the sanding time down. It gets downright tiring sanding the round-over edges with a ROS, especially when I am finishing 10 boards at a time. I had heard about flap sanders, but didn’t know much about them. What amazed me when searching the Internet I found very few companies that make them. What I did find was the Grizzly G8749. I have used this for about thr...

Great lumber in Southern California

Great lumber in Southern California

02-07-2013 06:09 PM by david_larch | 7 comments »

I don’t remember how I heard of this place, but having exhausted my search for decent Walnut in San Diego I decided to try something different. These guys are located in the Brea / Anaheim area so it was about an hour drive for me. I called up first and spoke with a sales rep – Steven – who informed me that their stock was great with extra wide boards. One thing that is different than what many are used to is that you don’t pick your lumber. You tell them what yo...

Garrett Wade Aluminum Straight Edge  38 inch

Garrett Wade Aluminum Straight Edge 38 inch

11-04-2010 03:08 AM by barryvabeach | 7 comments »

I just received a Garrett Wade aluminum straight edge 38 inch and wanted to post a review. First, years ago Garrett Wade had lots of woodworking tools, but seem to have cut way back lately. I looked at their steel straightedges last year, but the quoted tolerances were awlful ( IIRC .0005 per inch ) The aluminum straight edge is quoted at .002 over the whole length, which is pretty good. I have a granite surface plate that allowed be to check up to about 20 inches at a time, and could n...

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

08-21-2008 12:39 AM by SteveKorz | 7 comments »

I bought this DVD to gain a better understanding of Marquetry. I was very impressed with Silas Kopf’s methods of teaching his craft. Silas described multiple methods of marquetry and parquetry in his DVD. To watch him work gave me an exponential amount of knowledge. I don’t know that I would have obtained all that knowledge if I just read a book or looked at pictures. The back of the DVD case says: Silas Kopf demonstrates the most important ways marquetry and inlay have ...

Exceptional saw at a terrific price!

Exceptional saw at a terrific price!

07-18-2016 03:58 PM by John Mills | 7 comments »

After my disappointment with Central Machinery, I have been cautious about purchasing large shop equipment, but I couldn’t be happier. I went down to the Grizzly scratch and dent sale in Springfield, MO this past June. I was specifically looking for a new bandsaw as my old 12” Craftsman (circa 1965) was just worn out. There were plenty of store models out in the tents, and a few really banged up saws too. I picked the G0555P which was selling at $545 minus the 10% discount for mil...

It has taken me a few weeks but I have finally got my new planer and jointer all adjusted and running. I ran about 30 bf a cherry through them for a project I am working on. This is the first Grizzly purchase that I have made and I will definitely look at Grizzly when I go to upgrade my 9” crapsman band saw that I got for $35 on Craig’s list.The fit and finish we about what I expected. I took about 5 minutes to file the sharp edges and scrape a few drops of paint off the jointer fenc...

Stiletto 14 Oz. Hammer Overview Isn’t a hammer just a hammer? Well, yes it is, but as you know there are different types of hammers such a claw hammer, framing hammer, brick laying hammer and more. For this review we are going to cover the Stiletto Framing hammer. The Stiletto is one of our favorite hammers around. Out of the four guys who run this site, three of us have used a Stiletto hammer in our day to day work for a long time. Some longer than others, sorry just had to get that ...

handy little guy

handy little guy

04-09-2012 03:15 AM by glen | 7 comments »

Well, i’ve had this handy little guy lying around for a couple months now and I think I’ve put it through its paces for wood. I bought it because sometimes my circular saw is a little overkilll. Also, I have a few jobs I need to do that would require me to hold a circular saw over my head (eg. trimming some lengths of already installed fence boards), something that i’m not totally comfortable with. For those that don’t know, this is a mini-circular saw, set up for p...
