A must have for my shop

A must have for my shop

10-17-2010 05:14 AM by Chris | 7 comments »

This was a birthday present this year; I have only just been able to get some shop time with it. I am in the middle of a bookcase build and found this to be invaluable removing the whisper thin bit of wood needed to make the shelves fit just right or to clean up the home made moldings to complete the top of the case. Ease of Use:If you have used other planes you will find this plane to be straight forward and intuitive. Adjustments: The mouth is adjusted by loosening the locking screw...

Bridge City Tool Works JM Pro Single Wing and Dovetails

Bridge City Tool Works JM Pro Single Wing and Dovetails

02-13-2011 01:49 AM by Cubby | 7 comments »

I have been looking at Bridge City products for some time. I haven’t used them, however, because of the cost. You see, I never drove a Jaguar before. Well, recently I purchased the Bridge City Tool Work’s “Jointmaker Pro Single Wing” saw. This tool, ‘merely’, is a japanese saw blade tucked away in a unit that permits wood cutting operations. The precision cuts enabled by this tool and the surface definition produced by the cuts it makes is , in my opi...

After 5 years it's still kicking

After 5 years it's still kicking

01-22-2014 06:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I own only two newer craftsman tools. One is a 4” grinder that has lasted me 4 years after makita’s and dewalts burned out after about a year each. Go figure. And this little compressor that has been stellar..I’ve been wanting to give this little compressor it’s due for some time now as I’ve had tons of experience with it. .This compressor is now rated at 1 hp. Mine was labeled 1.5 hp. I think though that they are the same item. The hp must have been reassessed o...

Replacing an old benchtop planer

Replacing an old benchtop planer

02-13-2011 08:14 PM by Ian_S | 7 comments »

I recently purchased ($1390.00) this planer from my local woodworking store Warren Cutlery in Rhinebeck New York. The planer was on display in the store, so all I had to do set up wise was bolt on the cast iron bed extensions, connect the dust collection hood and install a plug. Set up time under two hours. The adjustment screws on the bed extensions were easy to use when leveling the beds, though the screws on each end had limited room for turning the allen key. This planer appears to b...

Ezee-Feed, One My Best Shop Investments

I picked up a nice, 12’ long piece of red oak S4S for ripping down into smaller stock. I needed 12’ lengths, but I also realized how much control I did not have if I tried to feed the board into my table saw from 11’ away from the blade. I didn’t think about handling and ripping it in my small shop. I mean, I have the length, but I did not want to have to crawl under the long boards to puzzle the ripping process together. After pondering the process for a moment for...

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.

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. ...
