Great Stile and Rail Set  - Made in USA

Great Stile and Rail Set - Made in USA

01-01-2014 11:38 PM by mcase | 5 comments »

I recently went through a real nightmare with Freud’s new stile and rail cutters. Since I stupidly trusted Freud I did not use the set until I needed it for an order for cabinets. Unfortunately It was too late to return their junk so I had to eat the cost of their useless product. I replaced their garbage with a set of American-Made cutters from Eagle America. What a world of difference! – Smooth cutting and perfectly mating. It feels good buying American products and h...

All-in-one cleaning kit makes it simple.

All-in-one cleaning kit makes it simple.

This kit is really convenient. Sure you could gather all the pieces separately, but it’s nice to have them all together. The basin for the saw blades is really nice. You don’t have to worry about finding a shallow cookie sheet that might be used for food (and potentially getting someone mad at you). Just mix one part of the cleaner to 3 parts water and let your blade or router bit soak. After five minutes or so, use the included brush to scrub off the pitch and resin. Voila! Clean...

O1 vs A2

O1 vs A2

06-11-2013 01:34 AM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

This past Christmas I put the Lie Nielsen bevel edge socket chisels on my Santa Please Get Me List. Between my wife and mom I got 5….....of the O1 chisels. My bad, I should have been more specific. I already had a set of decent chisels from long ago and although I didn’t know for sure what type of tool steel they were made from I was disappointed in how long, or briefly in this case, they held a sharp edge. After reading many reivews on the A2 chisels I decided that was what I...

A Splintered History of Wood: Belt Sander Races, Blind Woodworkers, and Baseball Bats by Spike Carlsen This is an easy, entertaining read, with a nice mix of humor, facts, and real-world knowledge. The book gets you started with a quick schooling in wood biology, then launches into a historical tour of wood, woodworking, and wood workers. He covers the silly and the serious from the perspective of both an interviewer and a carpenter. This isn’t an encyclopedia, it won’t repl...

Veritas Bevel-up planes

Veritas Bevel-up planes

10-16-2011 07:39 PM by Newage Neanderthal | 5 comments »

I am reviewing these planes as a set because for me that is how they were purchased and that is how they are used. I will be focusing more their use than how well made they are, primarily because it is already well known that they are top notch in that regard and me saying they’re machined nicely doesn’t add much. Fit and finishJust so it is touched on and to get it out of the way; these planes are very well made. Set up involved nothing more than removing the packing oil and honing the ...

Viking Re-Saw Blade 105" x 1/2" 3 TPI (Timberwolf)

Viking Re-Saw Blade 105" x 1/2" 3 TPI (Timberwolf)

10-17-2011 06:05 AM by David Grimes | 5 comments »

We all know that most of the time the blades that come with anything new are usually pretty sad. The blade that came with my Ridgid was not so bad at all. But as soon as I installed the Grizzly 6” riser block and the 105” blade they sent with it was when I found out what a bad saw blade was like… truly unusable. I began to search for a better blade. My intention was to obtain a 1/2” blade that can handle everyday chores, but could step up and do some nice re-sawin...

Not so impressive.

Not so impressive.

02-04-2011 01:58 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 5 comments »

I was warned. I was warned every time I went into Woodcraft. Don’t buy Groz! I’ve seen it everywhere online. I’m here to tell you, they are on to something when they say don’t buy Groz. The Groz isn’t a terrible plane, but it isn’t a very good one either. This is actually the only plane I ever received brand new. Every other plane I have is an old Millers Falls or an old Stanley. Out of the box it does not impress. The metalwork is haphazard and I would not...

Kelton - McNaughton M8 Center Saver - AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE TOO!!!!!!!

Fellow Jocks, Most of you probably have heard of the Center Saver system. For those of you who have not, its a great tool system for bowl/platter turning that lets you “save” or core out the inside of your bowl blanks to make smaller blanks from the same blank of wood instead of just creating tons of shavings. I recently found some “free” wood on craigslist and it turned out to be a huge norway maple tree that someone had taken down and saved the 8 ft trunk secti...

Rockler corner caster - errr corner STOP blocks

Rockler corner caster - errr corner STOP blocks

03-09-2012 03:43 AM by ken_c | 5 comments »

Well I guess you get what you pay for. AT $16 one shouldn’t complain much but placed and a some what light cabinet you would think that they would work just a little better than they do. I got them because that would fit my application but I didn’t expect them to be as bad as they are. I can barely move the router table with them installed. I think that they are just torquing under and rubbing but the way they are made there isn’t much that could be done . Time to re-th...

Very nice saw for the price

Very nice saw for the price

02-04-2011 03:03 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 5 comments »

This is a well made, low cost handsaw that I use for cutting joinery. I think it was a little over $30 at Woodcraft. The handle is beech and the top is brass, the blade is rigid and very sharp. I am new to the world of handsaws other than the ripsaws sold at the big box stores so this was a big step up for me. I think this brand is worth looking into for future purchases.
