Stiletto Hammer Review

Stiletto Hammer Review

10-02-2009 06:48 PM by toolman | 7 comments »

Stiletto 14 Oz. Hammer Overview Isn’t a hammer just a hammer? Well, yes it is, but as you know there are different types of hammers such a claw hammer, framing hammer, brick laying hammer and more. For this review we are going to cover the Stiletto Framing hammer. The Stiletto is one of our favorite hammers around. Out of the four guys who run this site, three of us have used a Stiletto hammer in our day to day work for a long time. Some longer than others, sorry just had to get that ...

handy little guy

handy little guy

04-09-2012 03:15 AM by glen | 7 comments »

Well, i’ve had this handy little guy lying around for a couple months now and I think I’ve put it through its paces for wood. I bought it because sometimes my circular saw is a little overkilll. Also, I have a few jobs I need to do that would require me to hold a circular saw over my head (eg. trimming some lengths of already installed fence boards), something that i’m not totally comfortable with. For those that don’t know, this is a mini-circular saw, set up for p...

Great mid range dust collecter.

Great mid range dust collecter.

06-01-2010 06:55 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 7 comments »

I wanted to upgrade my dust collection for a shop vac to the real deal.I always trust delta machinery so I thought this was a good way to go. I headed right over to woodcraft and I saw this shiny beast. I purchased it that day along with the appropriate fittings and hoses. woodcraft has an amazing supply of dust collection accessories I might add!I got home and began to assemble the unit. There is a moderate amount of assembly but the instructions for once are actually helpful. I would sugges...

New Order from Toys and Joys

New Order from Toys and Joys

11-27-2011 04:52 AM by Raymond | 7 comments »

I reciently placed another order with Toys and Joys for the two toys pictured above. I figured this would be a good time to write a review. This is my third or fourth order from Toys and Joys. Plans are 18X24 full size with all dimensions. They are printed on good quality paper and are easy to read. My order was shipped quickly and was packaged great. I highly recommend them. I can’t wait to see what Toys and Joys has new for 2012 If you get a chance check them out. http://www.toysandj...

MD-300 metal detector

11-28-2011 10:31 PM by BeachedBones | 7 comments »

I purchased this MD-300 metal detector from China through Ebay, to find any nails, staples or bolts in some recycled wood.This model: http://dmq1219.en.made-in-china.com/product/yeBEbDWjyghN/China-MD300-Hand-Held-Metal-Det.htmlI paid 12.68 for mine shipped, so I didn’t think I could go too wrong with it.I saw Norm on New Yankee workshop using a higher end variety of these security metal detectors over salvaged wood. Simple hand held wands to you sweep over something to detect any metal...

my review of the new unisaw

my review of the new unisaw

03-06-2011 04:27 AM by sawdustphill | 7 comments »

Extes- express delivered my new 3hp unisaw on march first. It came in five boxes. when I opened the bigbox I noticed I didn’t get the black folder they advertise my manuals were in a plastic bag, I don’t know whatsup with that And the wrench did not have the soft grip on it, I think delta is trying to cheapen up. But on a posative note the drawer was metal with full extension drawer slides, not the cheap mdf I saw on the one they had at woodcraft in Lexington, Ky. The throat open...

Good Basic Moisture Meter

Good Basic Moisture Meter

12-01-2015 08:17 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Some tools have flashy features or noteworthy upgrades. This is not it. This is a very basic moisture meter that is accurate. Most of the app-based moisture meters seem to have questionable (or laughable) accuracy. If you set the meter for 2 or 3, based on wood type, and insert the probes you will see the lights come on. Wait a second and you get a reading… say 6.8. Then probe the same board in a couple more spots and it will read within 0.2 of the other readings. This is more...

Hitachi C12LSH sliding compound saw - A tale of woes

Hitachi C12LSH sliding compound saw - A tale of woes

04-24-2009 05:00 PM by WhittleMeThis | 7 comments »

I was shopping for a new Sliding Compound Miter Saw and looked at all the offerings from the major tool manufacturers. I came across the Hitachi 12” sliding compound saw and, being somewhat of a gadget person, I found the digital miter gauge and the laser guide compelling features along with the short  rear footprint requirement (sliding saws are notorious for requiring a huge amount of space behind the saw for slide travel). Having my interest peaked I read some reviews from a few of ...

Helps Keep Shop Socket clutter to a mininum

Helps Keep Shop Socket clutter to a mininum

01-29-2010 05:04 PM by David Craig | 7 comments »

As I probably have over-stated many times, I have a small basement shop and I will frequently look for items that can either reduce tool clutter or increase safety. I have a number of shop items that require wrenches or sockets to change settings, swap items, perform assembly, etc. When it comes to car maintenance, I love my socket set, but when I am working downstairs, I find them a bit of a pain. Sockets drop to the floor and hide themselves and they can sometimes be a danger because they a...

Summit shop vac, quiet like Fein but less expensive

Summit shop vac, quiet like Fein but less expensive

11-07-2010 04:51 PM by Mark Colan | 7 comments »

A month ago, Peachtree Woodworking offered a Summit Wet / Dry Shop Vac on special for $180, though its regular price is $399. I have made do with my Shop Vac brand QSP vacuum for some years, but a few features here made me decide to try the Summit. Its low noise: 65 db. This video gives you an idea of how much more quiet it is. Now that I have received it and compared it to my Shop Vac QSP (where Q means quiet!) I can say the Summit is much quieter, such that I feel safe in using it w...
