KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop

KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop

1031 days ago by Pie | 4 comments »

On my usual Thursday night grocery shopping at WalMart, I was looking through the tool aisle (never know what I may find) I (Ok my girlfriend did( saw this hanging by the tape measures> Hmmm for around $4 bucks I thought I would give it a try because my workbench needed a built in measuring tape. It took me 2 tries to get it on correctly. I was certain it would not stick after re taping 2x but it did. I had to cut it with a dremel since it is a metal backed tape. Definitely, worth it, just no...

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books

2291 days ago by sandhill | 4 comments »

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books – So how useful is the set of DVD’s going to be? “Very much I hope” My finishing skills leave a lot to be desired – A REAL LOT so much in fact that if you see most of my projects on LJ they are all hand applied and natural finishes with no stains or dyes. The price of this DVD set was about $120.00. The first one bought was got and watched was not impressive it was very limited in content and Charles and Bob spent too much time just talking with...

Worth Every Penny

Worth Every Penny

2017 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

I gotta have my music. In fact, for some reason I concentrate better when I have music going than when I don’t. However, with the scream of power tools, it can get lost. Not only that, but something has to help pass the time when sanding! Well, the Work Tune does the job just fine. I picked this one up for $50 from Lowe’s with some Christmas money, and I’m thrilled with it. First the hearing protection: It works great. I can hear the scream of the machines, but n...

The "All-Inclusive" book on the topic of dust control

The "All-Inclusive" book on the topic of dust control

1831 days ago by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Author: Sandor Nagyszalanczy$14.93 at Amazon as of this writing Ok, you’ve got to be getting pretty specific if you are looking at buying a book solely written about what is technically a huge vacuum cleaner! However, as woodworkers, we should all be concerned with doing it healthily for ourselves and anyone else in our shops. If you need this information it is a good thing that someone has compiled this book for you. Sandor does a great job of taking this topic and logically cove...

Harbor Freight 3" x 21" Variable Speed Belt Sander

Harbor Freight 3" x 21" Variable Speed Belt Sander

1432 days ago by Routerisstillmyname | 4 comments »

Never had a need for a belt sander. Occasionally I thought it would help to have one around just in-case but the prices on belt sanders are ludicrous. Up until now…. HF has two belt sanders on sale and I had a 20% coupon so I took the plunge especially since I desperately needed some aggressive sanding to remove glue from large panels.I decided on this 3”x21” instead on the other one that’s 4×24. Mainly because I liked the weight and I feel that the 6 amps is more than adequate for sa...

Harbor Freight Bench Grinder Stand: Solid, great value

Harbor Freight Bench Grinder Stand: Solid, great value

1282 days ago by Mark Colan | 4 comments »

With Harbor Freight, it really pays to go into the store and see what you’re getting, because their product quality varies a lot. I looked first at their “universal tool stand” (big enough for a planer), and found it more than a bit flimsy, due to thin sheet metal construction. But the bench grinder stand is very solid, made of steel that is 1/16 thick. The parts fit together with holes lining up perfectly, and the design makes the assembly very stable. The bolts and n...

A strong follow-up to Ventura's first band saw book

A strong follow-up to Ventura's first band saw book

1830 days ago by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Price: $18.24 at Amazon. Buying used or from Half.com (thanks Jim) might help you find it cheaper. Like many here at LJs, I throoughly enjoy making band saw boxes. My first inspiration for these was Lois Keener Ventura’s “Building Beautiful Boxes with your Band Saw” book. This is a “sequel” to that first book. I’ll be hunting that review down and posting for that one later on as well. I have posted a bunch of reviews on Amazon and am migrating the woo...

Newest 12 Volt Lith

Newest 12 Volt Lith

1279 days ago by Hermando | 4 comments »

I just wanted to share the latest addition to my cordless tool set. I have been building my Makita LXT inventory throughout the years. In the past I have used several brands of the 12 volt lithium sets. I first bought a Sears Nextec drill/jigsaw/flashlight set. It actually was a good set, but I found a few annoying things about the tools. The sears drill had a sticky speed switch and the jigsaw was awkward to hold in your hand and switch on. It worked better as a reciprocating saw. To ofte...
