Deft Poly Sprays Well

Deft Poly Sprays Well

794 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” ...

The New Traditional Woodworker

The New Traditional Woodworker

1205 days ago by gardentiger | 4 comments »

I fancy myself as a hand tool woodworker until I start to sweat. Theorizing and reading are much more friendly to the knuckles. Lots of tools techniques and individual shop projects in this book. I’m guessing if you work your way through the projects you’ll emerge on the other side as a good hand tool neanderthal. Cool projects consist of straight edge, winding sticks, several types of bench hooks, etc. Only lacking a mock up of the tower of babel. I’ll talk to Jim lat...

Woodworking APP

Woodworking APP

266 days ago by Vagabondwheeler | 4 comments »

In working with a friend I located a great app to determine the cuts on a project and the amount of board or panels required. It is called Cut Calculator and costs 4.99 in the Apple APP store. I bought it for use with my iPad. To determine the amount of lumber required you simply input the length of the cuts in feet, inches or cm. Then you add the number of this length you will need with a slide scale. Down side is you can only enter 20 at a time. If you need more then you have to ent...

Fun and affordable

Fun and affordable

113 days ago by siavosh | 4 comments »

I’ve recently acquired a full blown case of sharpening OCD, and having been inclined towards Japanese tools, I’ve started pining for natural water stones. I’m strictly a newbie, but apparently there are some advantages to using high quality “naturals” especially at the higher grits. The issue is that to get a descent one you need to fork over hundreds if not thousands of dollars because they are limited in supply. All this while synthetics are more consistent, ch...

Keeping the shop cleaner

Keeping the shop cleaner

1614 days ago by brianl | 4 comments »

In February I finally got a table saw. It’s used and fairly old, but it was free, so I can’t complain too much. It didn’t come with a stand or with any sort of dust collection mechanism. After tuning it up and running some plywood through it I was amazed at how much dust was kicked up. I decided that I needed to get a bag or something to help. I searched around and found the Keen Product's DustCutter on Amazon. Once orderded, it was shipped very quickly and arrived q...

Wood River V3 low angle block plane.

Wood River V3 low angle block plane.

1200 days ago by Florida_Jim | 4 comments »

Last Saturday I was at my local Woodcraft store. They had a 10% store wide discount. Well I was looking at their new wood River block planes. So for $80.99 plus tax, I bought the low angle version.It is very well made. The design is based on the Stanley #65. The bed is nicely machined so the plane iron fits very well. The plane iron is .118” thick. This gives a very nice finish. The iron on my old Stanley 60 ½ is 0nly .079” The iron only needed a bit of polishing, and a touch up with a ...

Hartville Tool Mortise Chisels and Bits

Hartville Tool Mortise Chisels and Bits

2054 days ago by Matt (Upper Cut) | 4 comments »

I recently ordered the set for my new Jet JFM-5. I am very disappointed and will be buying a higher quality bit set. I’ll keep these cheaper chisels for rough work. I’m sure they won’t last long. You can find the link to the set here. Pros:1. Cheap Cons:1. This is a short set. This means that you’ll have to add your arbor extension to your mortiser.2. Not sharp, so you’ll have to sharpen them.3. Not ground to standard angle. I used the Lee Valley hones. A...
