Had this saw three months

Had this saw three months

09-19-2012 01:22 PM by Howie | 5 comments »

I had this saw for three months now. It replaced a Ridgid 3650 which served me well. I had been looking at cabinet style saws for a while. I got up one morning and had an email from Woodcrafters that they had this saw for $300.00 off. They only had two(one in the crate,one floor display. I got the one in the crate.(I paid $899.00)Set up was easy(I did it all myself) Originally I put the stock fence on it and I feel that fence was adequate however thru the generosity of my son, I have replaced...

The Clifton Multiplane

The Clifton Multiplane

07-31-2008 09:36 PM by lethentymill | 5 comments »

A new Multiplane is quite an investment – when I started this series of projects five years ago I was still under the spell of this tool and Stanley still had a couple of cheaper alternatives which could be recommended for grooving and cutting dados.Five years on (running evening classes and producing the home learning course), how do I feel about them? The only successor to the Stanley/Record models that I knew was the Clifton – I have three old Stanleys and had one new Clifton; it was th...

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

11-10-2011 04:51 PM by WoodworkGuy | 5 comments »

I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included). It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient...

BIG surprise in a little kit!

BIG surprise in a little kit!

02-02-2013 05:55 PM by Kumasan79 | 5 comments »

Some friends wanted to update their kitchen by refinishing their oak cabinets.They asked me about the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformation product.To say the least I was skeptical and nervous.I didn’t want to “paint” over good solid oak.I didn’t want to mess up their cabinets.But they were willing to give it a try and my motto is “You live here so what you say is what you get.” They picked their color and off we went. The system itself is very easy if you ha...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

02-01-2014 03:30 AM by Jeff_in_KCMO | 5 comments »

Is it weird that the whole time I was using my new Veritas Cabinet Scraper I was singing Sophie B. Hawkins’ line, “Damn, I which I was your lover,” over and over in my head? I know where it started… sorry, I was distracted by my four year old, Jane, who apparently was turned down by a boy in class today and she is really sad… back to it… it started when I took my first pass. Shhhhwit, a perfect shaving. “Damn,” the damn of amazement, not the ...

"Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design"

"Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design"

01-21-2010 06:12 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 5 comments »

When it comes to woodworking, I often feel like I am working my way backwards. I was proficient with a tablesaw before I picked up my first handsaw. I knew my way around a drum sander before learning how to use a smoothing plane. And perhaps most disturbingly, I was creating and building my own furniture before I knew anything about design. Heck, who am I kidding? I still know nothing about design! I know what I think looks good and I follow a few basic rules, but more often than not I ...

My New Rockler HVLP Spray System

My New Rockler HVLP Spray System

04-03-2012 10:36 PM by Jorge Velez | 5 comments »

It’s been about 6 wks since I purchase this Rockler Spray System I’m very happy with the performance of this product. I own a small compressor and I had been using this for quite some time but I was kind of annoying with the level of noise and the fact that is not as portable as I wanted to be, this Spray system is fully portable and bit less noisy, however I had made an plywood enclosure and reduce the noise. I dont have a way to measure the noise levels but certainly is lower...

Dadoing

Dadoing

07-17-2011 02:49 AM by navtalk | 5 comments »

Please don’t be too concerned with my 3 STAR evaluation, I had to put something there and haven’t had the opportunity to use the saw. I am getting ready to start my first project, by the time I am through, I will be ready to give it a better/worse rating. I just purchased this R4510 Ridgid. I like it so far but it does have some irritating points. Trying to find a zero clearance insert for the standard blade and a dado blade is a lesson in futility. I finally had to make my own...

Bosch 1297DK

Bosch 1297DK

04-03-2009 05:59 PM by bensaw | 5 comments »

I picked up this sander last night at Lowe’s for $52. Seemed a little sturdier than the bargain basement ones from Black and Decker and Skil. The sander seemed stable and was coformtable in my hand so I brought it home. The ROS20VSK from Bosch already has a review here on Lumberjocks. In fact, that review is what sealed the deal when I was at the store. I wanted to see if the experience of this sander would be the same as the ROS20VSK. I don’t know the relationship between the ...

Outstanding Low-Profile JigSaw

Outstanding Low-Profile JigSaw

07-18-2011 09:13 PM by TheDane | 5 comments »

Both of my 20+ year old jigsaws bit the dust, so I trundled off to Menards to scope out a replacement. I spotted this saw on sale ($84.95 … Rockwell’s MSRP is $149.99). Nobody on LJ’s had any experience with this saw ( http://lumberjocks.com/topics/27668 ), so I decided to take the leap (Menards has a pretty good return policy). I had about $80 in rebate coupons, so it was an easy purchase. Full disclosure: I have always hated jigsaws (hard to control, hard to get straigh...
