Finally Tamed It... Lee Valley Dog Holes Bushing and Bits

Finally Tamed It... Lee Valley Dog Holes Bushing and Bits

02-12-2016 02:15 PM by Scheol | 7 comments »

I recently needed to drill 18 round 3/4” dog holes in my Paul Seller pine workbench and because all my bench accessories are Lee Valley/Veritas I opted for their Dog Holes and Bushing kit (http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=72602&cat=1,41637). Out of the box the bit was incredibly sharp and had very pronounced spurs. The fit with the bushing is good and I could only notice a very slight play. I made my first jig to help drilling the front row of dog holes...

Kreg Step Drill Bits Dull? Get'em sharpened at Kreg!!!

Kreg Step Drill Bits Dull? Get'em sharpened at Kreg!!!

10-28-2016 02:58 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 7 comments »

Do you have a gaggle of Kreg Step Drill bits in a drawer in your shop collecting dust? Well, I had several bits because when one would get dull, I would purchase another. What?......$17 or so? Kreg Tool Company offers a bit sharpening service that is not only economical but is fast and convenient. I mailed off 5 bits and within a week got them back sharp and in a nice storage box. The price today is $5 per bit and that includes return postage. Click on the link here to get the 4-1...

These are disappearing fast.....

These are disappearing fast.....

Having followed late last year it was noted with great sadness that this company had closed it doors. It supposedly made the greatest rasps for woodworkers in the world. Each one is handcrafted by an artisan in France who had to train for 3 years to until they are allowed to forge, heat treat and hand stitch a rasp whose teeth are cut very regular, but always spaced a bit little off with each tooth cutting a slightly different path than its predecessor. This results in a tool that is both po...

Gator Grit 40 grit 5 inch sanding discs

Gator Grit 40 grit 5 inch sanding discs

09-29-2013 06:35 AM by Purrmaster | 7 comments »

Let’s get a couple of things out of the way first: Yes, I start sanding with 40 grit. Yes, this is insane. I find myself often having to sand out screwups on my projects and the rougher the sanding grit the faster I can sand it out. I got these discs at Lowe’s. I normally got the Shop Smith 40 grit discs but they were out of them this time. So I bought a 50 pack. So far I’ve gone at least dozen of them over a period of several months, on different woods. Ther...

LUBRICANT

LUBRICANT

My S.I.L. works at a chemical plant in Yazoo City Mississippi. They use a lubricant there caller kroil. The only place that I know of that it can be bought is direct from the factory which is KANO labs located in TN. I ordered some and believe it is twice as good as WD40. Check out the web site http://www.kanolabs.com. I believe that if you try it you too will be h

Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

First, sorry but I couldn’t get a picture of the final cut to load so I loaded a picture of one of my glider’s. Check out this by MCLS!! http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/ec081111.html While I have not acutally used theirs, I did take atwo 100 grit sanding discs that were 12 inch and cut them down to 9 inch and put them on an old bosch blade that I knew left a lot of saw marks and I was amazed at how smooth the rips came out. I usually use a Forrest woodworker...

Oneway spindle steady

Oneway spindle steady

02-20-2010 07:14 AM by hairy | 7 comments »

When you need one, you might as well get one. This is a real good one. I unpacked it, assembled onto a spindle I was working on, then read the directions. I had it right, it does just what I expected without any troubles. It holds it steady when turning,and any further shaping I did after the turning. No money wasted on this one. The big mistake I made was just getting the spindle steady, they make a bowl steady that you can attach the spindle jaws to. I don’t think I can go the other ...

Kreg Deck Jig Hidden Fastener System

Kreg Deck Jig Hidden Fastener System

06-28-2010 04:36 PM by knothead | 7 comments »

I was very excited to get the Kreg Deck Jig this summer as I am replacing the deck at my home. The new deck is a 10’ X 16’ floating deck, framed in the usual manner with PT lumber for the structure and Western Red Cedar (5/4×6) decking and trim. I have a most favorable opinion of Kreg tools generally, however in the Deck Jig they might have missed the mark just a little bit. I have a few observations….... 1. The jig is formed of the familiar blue plastic, but I fi...

Homemade veneer flattening solution

Homemade veneer flattening solution

11-09-2009 11:59 PM by RBWoodworker | 7 comments »

I recently purchased a veneer pump, and got some veneer along with the deal.. but the veneer that I got, was rolled in a protective paper and left for who know’s how long.. it took the curve of the roll well and would not lay flat no matter what I did.. I put it between two platens and left it for 3 weeks and that did not do the trick…SO.. Lee Jesberger has this solution on his website prowoodworkingtips.com and it consist of 1 gallon of water..8 oz. of pure glycerin which is avai...

Norton Waterstone set IM83  in box

Norton Waterstone set IM83 in box

06-28-2010 04:55 PM by Ollie | 7 comments »

This is just a quick review of the Norton waterstone set in a carrying case.I only purchased this set after a lot of deliberation and bargain hunting. I paid £230 for the set, after first checking the price of all the stones individually, including the flattening stone.It worked out that I was only paying £20 for the box and free DVD that comes with it. I think that having the box is worth it just to keep the stones out of harms way and ready to go. Upon receipt of the kit I first watched ...
