MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

03-18-2012 11:04 PM by SouthpawCA | 7 comments »

Having very limited space in my garage workshop I finally broke down and purchased MLCS’ Cast Iron Router Table Extension. This table replaces a Bench Dog table and a Rockler table. It’s mounted on your table saw replacing one of the existing cast iron extensions. The cast iron table is very heavy as my UPS guy will attest to. It came securely packaged and well oiled. After cleaning off the oil I removed the existing TS extension, in my case it was the left side of the tabl...

Great tools vs. good tools.

Great tools vs. good tools.

01-18-2014 09:44 PM by madts | 7 comments »

I got a fair amount of good Brownie points at amazon during Christmas, that I decided to spring the plunger on a Tormek T-3. I have had lots of problems here in Houston, working in a 2-car garage with all the humidity, to keep my tools sharp. Sharpen one day rusty the next. I have been using scary sharp, diamond stones, but I spent most of my time with dull tools. Not any more.I have spent a couple of days getting all the tools that need sharping out of the garage and cleaned them up.Then ...

Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint - First use review

Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint - First use review

09-04-2017 11:52 PM by diito | 7 comments »

Like most I’ve seen this paint advertised at Woodcraft. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of reviews of it out there and the Woodcraft guys I’d talked to didn’t have a lot of say other than it’s really thick stuff. The price was a little high and I’ve always had fantastic results with General Finishes Milk paint on projects that called for paint so I never seriously considered buying it. That is until I started a stuffed animal storage project for my nearly...

Jet JJP-12 Planer/Jointer combo (Jointer mode)

Jet JJP-12 Planer/Jointer combo (Jointer mode)

07-14-2008 04:33 AM by GaryB | 7 comments »

Here are several pictures of the Jet JJP-12 jointer/planer combo machine in Jointer mode. I picked up the crated machine with a small flatbed trailer. 3 of us (myself, my 14 year old neighbor, and my 115 lb wife) were able to slide it off of the trailer, then off the palate and onto the mobile base easily, despite the machine weighing over 500 Lbs. It came almost fully assembled in the crate. Only had to install the portion of the guard over the blades, a plug on the end of the cord, and ...

Fantastic starter HVLP set, but choose your finish wisely

Fantastic starter HVLP set, but choose your finish wisely

04-12-2015 07:18 PM by paxorion | 7 comments »

When my wife asked me to upcycle a dresser for our daughter, I told her that I needed a new tool to get it done. After doing my research and agonizing if I wanted to get the Earlex Spray Station 5500 as my first HVLP or go for the HF/Rockler HVLP. I eventually settled on this one, figuring I can learn from the experience and go for a 3 or 4 stage after I finally wear it out. I’ve had and used the unit for almost a year now. The HVLP comes with 3 tips, that at best I can figure is ...

Rockler 3-Piece Silicone Glue Application Kit

Rockler 3-Piece Silicone Glue Application Kit

05-20-2015 04:19 AM by B4B | 7 comments »

I picked this up on a whim. I was looking for an ink roller, or glue roller, and couldn’t find either at a local woodworking supply shop. I did find this gem and for $15 I figured I’d give it a try. I’ve used it a couple times now, and both times I intentionally left the glue dry on the brush/applicator/tray and it came off as advertised. As for longevity, only time will tell.

Tool-less Blade Guide Bearing Retofit

Tool-less Blade Guide Bearing Retofit

04-20-2017 04:11 PM by woodshopmike | 7 comments »

This review is going to just skim the surface as a more detailed review is on my blog here. With that said, let me tell you the big things that make this upgrade great. The new blade guides don’t take up anymore room than the originals, but they’re many times better. The bearings are 6000 series which is a big step up from the skateboard sized bearings that originally came on the saw. Also, adjusting the bearings is very quick an easy. There is a thumb screw on the front of...

Does a good job with the right power

Does a good job with the right power

08-28-2009 01:01 AM by jake | 7 comments »

I wanted a small nail gun for woodworking projects but didn’t always like firing up my compressor. The Arrow shoots 18 gauge nails up to one and a quarter inch long. Good for the 3/4 inch lumber from the big boxes I often buy. I use quite a bit of oak and it drives the nails fully through solid oak, with the nail head just below the surface for a clean look. The reviews on Amazon were amazingly poor, but a few spoke of it doing a good job with the right power. I found out first hand tha...

Wood River # 6

Wood River # 6

05-08-2010 03:27 AM by jerryo | 7 comments »

I used this plane for the first time today and I was very impressed. It is a big step up from the other planes I have been using. It has good heft to it and all of the parts were machined nice and didn’t requiure any filing.The sole was dead flat and the iron was thick and the back flat. I spent 5 minutes honing the iron to an 8000 grit water stone and took fine shavings in maple, walnut and cherry. I have never used a Lie-neilsen, Clifton orVeritas but with the way this performed IR...

Great heavy-duty corded drill

Great heavy-duty corded drill

07-14-2008 10:21 PM by sry | 7 comments »

(pic from the Milwaukee tools website)As I continue my home improvement adventures and transition into woodworking as well, it seems logical to try to share as much info as possible. So this review I guess is my official end to lurking and beginning of contributing to the community. My motivation for buying this drill was that I burned out my old Dewalt 3/8” drill trying to mix some thinset for tiling. The Dewalt drill was great, but clearly not geared for this kind of work. So it...
