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...

Epoxy, O what a versatile glue...

Epoxy, O what a versatile glue...

02-06-2011 07:59 AM by DoctorDan | 5 comments »

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...

Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence

Sommerfeld Router Table and Fence

08-14-2009 06:27 AM by akdale | 5 comments »

Large top and well made. Ordered this top 2 years ago. Took a while to arrive and when it did the center section was crowned. The table comes in 3 sections of extruded aluminum that you bolt together. I email Sommerfeld and they explained this was a manufacturing issue and that a new section would be mailed. It was, 2 months later. I was told to keep the old section, was only billed for the table, no shipping for the first one or replacement section and they tossed in a well made shop...

Easy on the fingers.

Easy on the fingers.

10-25-2011 01:45 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 5 comments »

I’ve seen these little jobs hanging around the spray paint for a while now and I’ve been dying to give one a try. I went for the RustOleum brand as opposed to the generic one next to it. (about a $2 difference) I am very happy to say, after painting a wheelbarrow, a 55 gallon drum, a planter box and 6 Halloween decorations, my fingertip did not have the traditional ache that comes with using spray paint all weekend. It is well balanced and very comfortable to use for long periods ...

Great product, even better support!

Great product, even better support!

06-22-2011 02:44 AM by felkadelic | 5 comments »

I originally picked this up last fall at Rockler, at a significant discount from the $84.99 MSRP (I believe I got it for $49.99). At the time, I didn’t have a table saw with a standard miter slot, so I was only able to use this on my router table for routing the end of pieces. While it worked just fine for that task, I held off judgment until getting a table saw so that I could use this for its main intended purpose. A couple weeks ago I got a new (to me) Unisaw and was finally abl...

Infinity's 010-060 - Fine Crosscuts and General Purpose Versatility In One Blade

Infinity's 010-060 - Fine Crosscuts and General Purpose Versatility In One Blade

03-13-2009 08:22 PM by knotscott | 5 comments »

This is an amazingly clean cutting blade and it happens to have good versatility too. The Hi-ATB teeth are exceptional for crosscutting, but it also rips very cleanly in material to ~ 6/4”. It’ll excel in fine veneered plywood, melamine, hardwood, or other laminate, and is versatile enough to be used for general purpose work. It’s cleaner cutting than my Forrest WWII, Ridge Carbide, Tenryu, DW7657, and Infinity Combomax, though it doesn’t rip as aggressively. It’...

Whittlers and Carvers - Great book!

Whittlers and Carvers - Great book!

06-22-2011 03:27 PM by MsDebbieP | 5 comments »

This book review is from the June-July 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw!Whittling Little Folk by Harley Refsal In the informative yet humorous opening to this great little book, the author discusses the difference between whittling and carving. I would interpret his distinction as “a rose by any other name is still a rose”: it’s all about cutting away pieces of wood. The book, “Whittling Little ...

Video Review of my Excalibur Ex-21

Video Review of my Excalibur Ex-21

07-02-2013 12:32 AM by TripleB | 5 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks, After using a $10.00 scroll saw that I bought off of Craigslist for a couple years, I decided it was time to break out the bucks and upgraded to an Ex-21 saw. That was a year ago, now that I have the technology to make boring videos I figured I should do a review of it since that seems to be the thing to do when you make videos. So here is my less than spectacular video review of my EX-21. And just in case your wondering, just try and take my EX from me, I dare ya!!lol
