Highest quality pizza cutter I've ever seen

Highest quality pizza cutter I've ever seen

1073 days ago by Eric_S | 5 comments »

I decided to pick one up from Rockler after Lew’s great review. These things are no joke, a little pricey at ~$20 though. I’ve owned many pizza cutters and most are lightweight, blades wobble, or the blades are just crap. Not to mention that the blade is always off center. This one has none of those issues. Its the heaviest pizza cutter and kitchen utensil I own, solid stainless steel I believe. The blade is in the center with thick rubber or plastic washers on both sides ...

1875 days ago by knotscott | 5 comments »

The Freud LU87R010 is a 10” 24 tooth thin kerf (TK) ripping blade that features a red “Permashield” coating for reduced friction and corrosion resistance, laser cut anti-vibration/anti-noise expansion slots, flat top ground teeth (FTG) for efficient material removal, and an aggressive 20 degree hook angle for a fast feed rate. The LU87 is the TK counterpart to the LM72R010, and is part of Freud’s “Industrial” series. Rip blades are designed to make fast ...

The DeWalt Stacked Bargain...

1875 days ago by knotscott | 5 comments »

Low-priced plunge router for hobby use

Low-priced plunge router for hobby use

2076 days ago by ferstler | 5 comments »

Some woodworkers would shudder at the thought of using a Black and Decker tool for routing work, but actually their Fire-Storm unit is not half bad. I picked it up for $60 at Lowe’s a while back (list was $100, I think, but it was being discontinued), and have used it for several sign-making jobs and other oddities. The unit is rated for 11,000 to 28,000 spin speeds and has a 12-amp motor that seems powerful enough, and the collet is a 1/2 incher. The on/off switch is also easy to us...

With the books’ chapters including chairs, benches, tables, swings and gliders and garden projects, Outdoor Furniture pretty much has everything covered for outdoor furnishings. Besides the projects themselves the book focuses on how to build furn...

PC Mini Dovetail Template #4215 - Nice Idea, Poor Design, Not as Advertised

PC Mini Dovetail Template #4215 - Nice Idea, Poor Design, Not as Advertised

618 days ago by JustJoe | 4 comments »

I needed to make some small half-blind dovetailed drawers with 1/2” fronts and 1/4” sides and my Leigh jig wasn’t up to the task so I looked around and ordered the Porter Cable 4216. Most of you are familiar with the 4200 series PC jigs so I won’t discuss the jig itself, just the miniature template (#4215) – I just ordered the 4216 kit because I had to have the jig itself before I could use the mini dovetail template. My first discovery upon opening the box a...

Grizzly G0453Z

Grizzly G0453Z

1205 days ago by Scott H. | 4 comments »

I purchased the Grizzly G0453 15” planer with the spiral head cutter. It works like a dream! There is some snipe on the front of the board “at times” which is to be expected. I just make sure that the board is a little longer than what I need for the finished board. The snipe isn’t that deep. Most of the time it takes only a little sanding and it disappears. It was packed very well for shipping. It was actually in a wood crate. After I unpacked it, I used one roll of paper towels and sever...

Best Bang for the buck.

Best Bang for the buck.

1070 days ago by Dedvw | 4 comments »

I received this router table with stand for $140 bucks delivered to my door. I was hesistant because there are not a lot of reviews on this table and the low price, but I needed a simple table to get some craft fair projects completed. I ended up being competely impressed when I opened the box. It came to my door in fantastic condition about 3 days after I placed my order. Assembly was very easy and straightforward. I took about an hour and only had 3 different bolts for assembly. 95 perce...

good saw great price

good saw great price

615 days ago by americancanuck | 4 comments »

Less than a month ago I started into scrolling with an ancient Delta saw I got at a yard sale for $5.00. It only took me about a day to discover 2 things. first I was facinated with scrolling and second I would need a better saw if I was to really do any serious work. So I started researching saws. I found this King Canada saw at a local tool store for $120.00 CAD. I have never been happier. It doesn’t have all the features that a much more expensive saw would have and I had to do a lit...
