Used my boring machine to drill a bunch of holes in my cabinet box sides. Drilled 7 cabinets in around 20 minutes, this is a very easy tool to setup and worked just great. the only thing its a little loud while running so I put on my hearing protection.

Premium Wax with UV protection

Premium Wax with UV protection

08-22-2016 07:52 PM by Desert_Woodworker | 7 comments »

Not to wax the issue… All waxes are not created equal; Years ago, I used Automotive and Minwax paste waxes. Yes they do the job, but for the work that I do (the pieces are getting an extremely amount of sunshine (UV). I currently use a clear wax from http://www.sculptnouveau.com/ ($30 for 8oz.) My pieces endure direct exposure in the AZ sun. My understanding is: 1. your project 2. Your finish (paint, stain and a clear finish). In order to protect the 3 previous steps from UV destruct...

Entertaining, occasional rambling,  sometimes Jay is hard to hear

Entertaining, occasional rambling, sometimes Jay is hard to hear

10-04-2016 09:31 PM by Rick M | 7 comments »

I thought I would review some woodworking (and related) podcasts. I often prefer podcasts over music while in the shop or on drives. This is my 3rd woodworking related podcast. [A note about the rating … There is no reason this isn’t a 4 or 5 star podcast depending on the criteria. Since the name is, The Woodworking Podcast, I feel obligated to review it as such and relative to the 360 or Shop Talk podcasts which have stronger woodworking content and standalone. Some of you wi...

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

03-21-2009 01:25 AM by knotscott | 7 comments »

Even for a first timer, this inlay kit worked flawlessly as advertised. Using just basic router skills, it couldn’t be much simpler. Put the bit and the guide bushing in the router, trace the template to cut the receiving hole, add the spacer to trace out the inlay with the same template, cut the inlay piece free from the stock, and place it in the complimenting cutout hole. Some sanding may be required to make everything flush, and a practice run is always a good idea. The tip of the ...

HTC 2000 Universal Mobile Base

HTC 2000 Universal Mobile Base

05-11-2010 07:53 PM by CryptKeeper | 7 comments »

I purchased 2 of these units one for my Jet 6” jointer and one for a Powermatic 2800 drill press. By the manufacture specs the 6” jointer weighs 237lbs and the drill press weights in at 209lbs. The HTC works well for both applications. However, I question the load rating of 500lbs on these units I don’t see it being able to support my table saw, that is spece’d at 456 lbs., long term. Pros:Instructions are easy to follow and assembly is straight foreword it took about 15 per unit. ...

Craftsman Professional Router

Craftsman Professional Router

07-15-2013 06:39 AM by TianZi | 7 comments »

I recently purchased this Craftsman Professional router, though I did decide to return it a few days later. I only had it for 3-4 days, but figured I’d make an account here to post a review since the original reason I purchased the router was based off of lumberjoe’s review (thanks for the review!). Since his review was from about a year an a half ago, I figured I may as well post a new review since I was able to test it out. His review was very accurate compared to my experience...

DeWalt Side Strike Chisel Really Work

DeWalt Side Strike Chisel Really Work

03-26-2012 11:09 PM by Harry_Ch | 7 comments »

Recently got the DeWalt Side Strike Chisel because I needed a tool that could take being used and abused but wouldn’t complain about it later. Saw the batoning chisel LV has, but got to handle this one first. Out of the box(so to speak), it has a good sturdy blade with a 1 inch chisel nose along with an equally good side bevel/serrated edge(dang left-handed design). The handle is thick enough to fit your hand very well, regardless of which way you are holding it. That’s hard to...

Erecta-rack modular drying racks

Erecta-rack modular drying racks

02-18-2011 04:23 PM by Steve2 | 7 comments »

Industry and trade shows include steel rolling and other racks for drying painted (sprayed) panels, cabinet doors, or simply flat works products. Typical steel rolling racks cost $200 and upward, require appreciable floor space, particularly if used infrequently making them unsuitable for the hobbyists. The August IWF industry show in Atlanta unveiled a new product that solved this need for the small user. See Erecta-rack.com I have no connection to or vested interest in this company, t...

Laguna LT16 HD review-from unpack to.....

Laguna LT16 HD review-from unpack to.....

01-29-2014 05:03 PM by Hartworks | 7 comments »

I am new to Lumberjocks and wanted to share information regarding this bandsaw because I found only a few posts on the model when I was doing my research and decision making. May I start with John Carrasco at Laguna Tools. I contacted him regarding a demo model and was going to initially purchase a LT16 3000 series. Then I did some looking around and thought I was going to change to the LT14SUV. You see the LT14SUV has resaw capacity of 14” and a 3HP motor, the LT16 3000 series ha...

Rhynosoft pads have been mentioned/rated before & thanks again to Charles Neil for mentioning them in one of his videos. I’m finishing my 1st box & ordered some of these pads in various grits. Used the 320 for the arm-r-seal fiinsh. Pads are great to work with, tore one sheet in half & still has plenty of life left. Pads don’t crinkle like paper backed. Conforms nicely to the piece. $10.75/box of 20 pads 4 1/2×5 1/2. Grits available from 180 to 1200Web site is www...
