Did I misunderstand the purpose of this book?

Did I misunderstand the purpose of this book?

There is, of course, so-called price guides for just about every field of collecting, from comic books to Staffordshire pottery. Problem is, some categories of collecting lend themselves to well-sorted, organized price guide publications and some do not. For example, American coins…there are a few guides which list EVERY US coin, I mean every year, and grade (condition) with reliable common retail prices. Easy! Has anyone ever attempted to list every tool ever made? Nope, it’...

Hardware City Tools Replacement Knobs and Totes

Hardware City Tools Replacement Knobs and Totes

577 days ago by BigDawg | 4 comments »

I recently acquired a Stanley #4, Type 11 plane which was in desperate need of restoration. I found the plane at a flea market for $6.00, so if it was a dog then what am I really out? The plane’s body, frog and lever cap were in good shape, so I decided to clean it up and make a user out of it. Unfortunately, both the knob and tote were in horrible shape, which leads me to this review. I found Bill Rittner on the internet after doing a Google search on replacement plane totes. As lu...

Makita BO3710 Finishing Sander

Makita BO3710 Finishing Sander

79 days ago by b2rtch | 4 comments »

I got this sander just two days ago but I already put quite few hours on it.Like every one else I have multiple sanders. I am doing project for the church and no sander that I already have could have been used to do what I need to do except a 1/4 sheet orbital sander that I rarely use because it does not do a very good job.A 1/2 sheet sander is too big, too heavy and too cumbersome. This sander is 1/3 sheet.For what I have to do it is the perfect size. It perform very well yet it is light a...

Stanley Flush Cut Saw (Dovetail Saw)

Stanley Flush Cut Saw (Dovetail Saw)

2372 days ago by Zuki | 4 comments »

Website Link I bought this saw about a year ago as I needed a saw to flush cut plugs that I was using to hide countersunk screws. I was walking through Canadian Tire and saw this baby for about $14. The details – from Stanley • Flexible blade cuts plugs or dowels flush • 23-point blade cuts quickly and cleanly on the pull stroke • Double sided blade for convenient cutting to the left or right • Contoured handle is comfortable, provides maximum control • Excellen...

Craftsman 21802 13 Amp 120 Volt 10" Table Saw Model number 137.218020

I’ve had this saw for over 2 years and I thought it deserved a long-term review. It’s a decent performer that’s great for light-duty and the not so precision-intense projects. I’ll try to go over everything that my current knowledge will allow me to. Be aware that this is my first review! Out of the box everything went together nice and easy. There’s not much assembly required and if you’re a keen mechanic or builder you should have everything sorted out...

3D Router Carver System by CMT

3D Router Carver System by CMT

2372 days ago by dataman | 4 comments »

Quite a few years ago I purchased a CMT 3D Router Carver System by CMT.My first project was the front of a cedar chest I built for my oldest son as a wedding gift. It allowed me add a professional looking carving on the front of the chest without screwing it up since I do not know how to carve. I have had this tool for at least 10 years and for a while it went out of production but a couple of years ago they reintroduced it. It is easy to set up and as long as you have a ½” plunge rout...

Excellent tool for hollowers

Excellent tool for hollowers

I bought this tool some time ago, based on a recommendation I received from a good friend that does gallery class production turnings, and have been running it through it’s paces. Now that I have it’s measure, it is time to do a write up. This tool is made in New Zealand – and definitely has excellent engineering and quality control. It arrived in first class condition well packaged and extremely well protected. The instruction book is a bit on the slim side…not...

Santa Brought Me  A Landshark

Santa Brought Me A Landshark

2023 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 4 comments »

Or, more accurately a "Shark Guard" by LeeWay Workshop. Installation I’ve only had the opportunity to install this today, so I haven’t really had a chance to fully put it through its paces. However, so far I am impressed. The improvised packaging the unit arrived in was demonstrative of its small shop origins; the actual contents, however, were not. Installation was straightforward using the directions provided on the site. They warned that some owners of my saw (Craftsman 2...

Deft Poly Sprays Well

Deft Poly Sprays Well

757 days ago by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

I recently sprayed a front door with Deft satin Poly, and the project went quite well. I thinned the poly with 10% mineral spirits, which made it flow out and spray well. I used a gravity feed HVLP gun with a 1.5 mm tip. No sags or runs. No orange peel.My only complaint is it took 24 hours for each coat to dry. You need a place that will not be disturbed by foot traffic to finish with poly. The can says 4-6 hours to dry, but at 65-75 degrees it took all day and night. Nice product. I ...

Thanks for reading this review. I hope you’ll find useful informations and it will help you to make your choice.I’ve bought this saw used from a very kind guy in Ontario. I’ve taken the chance to buy it without beingable to do a test drive or even to see it. But I had a good feeling. And I was right.I am not sure if this exact model is still available in Canada but I’ve seen some clones under different brands. This saw is pretty amazing. Look at the specs:20” ...
