I have become accustomed to long lasting sandpaper like Norton 3x, and Freuds excellent ceramic blend sanding disks for my random orbit sander. I was running low on supplies, so I grabbed these Dewalt disks one day. Almost instantly the paper loads and clogs while sanding oak and Titebond II glue. The sanding was short lived, and I clocked about 8-10 minutes of sanding before switching pads. At first I thought the dust collection was excellent, then I realized it was only because these di...

Excellent operation, easy installation, only one small problem

Excellent operation, easy installation, only one small problem

I recently installed Benchcrafted hardware in my new bench, and used their new Crisscross system. I had heard it was going to be available, and waited for it’s release before ordering my hardware. The one thing I wasn’t keen on with their previous style of leg vise hardware was the constant adjustments you have to make with the pin as you vary the size of the stock being clamped. With this system, that pin is eliminated, along with the parallel guide and roller supports. ...

Makes a great hybrid saw mobile lift, many other possibilities

Makes a great hybrid saw mobile lift, many other possibilities

04-18-2010 11:03 PM by hypnos | 5 comments »

I recently bought a new Jet ProShop and I needed a mobile base due to my wife wanting to park in the garage. The high price and lack of really good reviews for any mobile base I could find to fit the proshop necessitated some inventiveness. This Central Hydraulics lift fit the bill, it just needed some longer lift runners. Some poplar and 1/4” machine screws brought it to the length I needed to span the base of my table saw. I will be adding bottom braces to my outfeed/assembly table th...

5th day with the New G0733

5th day with the New G0733

02-19-2015 12:18 PM by CyF | 5 comments »

I had said in my Blog about the trip to Grizzly that I would post a review after using the new lathe for a bit. Well I have wasted no time. I have already been on it about 15 hours in five days. But a little history first. I have owned and used 7 lathes over the past 25 years. They have all been Step pulley or Reeves drive machines, until I modified the one I was using before I got the new lathe, It I had modified with a treadmill motor and controller, but tread mill motors are NOISY. S...

problems but fast customer service

problems but fast customer service

03-12-2015 08:06 PM by Ray s | 5 comments »

I purchased a new Rikon 70-220VSR lathe on the 11th of November 2014 from Woodcraft. I turned a few pieces and the Rikon stopped working. I called customer service and they sent a new control board via two day mail. It took very little time to install and the lather worked like a charm. One caveat, you must stop the motor and wait for the speed indicator to clear prior to changing from forward to reverse of vice-verso. Cheers for the customer support for the fast identification and deliver...

Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

07-29-2009 10:51 PM by Mike H | 5 comments »

I got the Kreg Pocket Hole Master system about a year or two ago and have been wanting to add a few more clamps for doing some larger projects under consideration / in the plans. Got a e-mail the other day from woodcraft.com and they had them (Item # 144665) on sale (or Clearance perhaps) for $12.99 each so I ordered (3) of them which just came today. For (3) of them plus shipping cost was $47.96 which I think is a great price as they used to be about $25 per + s/h I believe some of ...

Great Arts and Craft furniture resource

Great Arts and Craft furniture resource

01-03-2010 04:15 PM by Tim Dahn | 5 comments »

I received this book as a Christmas gift and after a few looks through I can recommend this. I has a good bit of info regarding arts & craft furniture including drawings with dimensions on several pieces. Overall, a good read. If you are not familiar with the Grove Park Inn it is an incredible Arts and Craft style resort located in Asheville NC, full of A&C furniture and opened for business in 1913. If you want to check out the Inn’s website or have some extra coin for a $...

Swedish Sloyd Knife

Swedish Sloyd Knife

02-29-2012 12:49 AM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

Just a few weeks back I received this little treat I picked up for myself from the Lee Valley Tools website, a Swedish Sloyd Knife! This retails for $15.50 and I was plesantly surprised that for a cheaper costing carver knife that this is a very handy shop knife to have around. I would have preferred wood to the hard plastic handle (AHHH Its 16 bucks..lol)...but it fits nicely to the contours of the hand, has a sharp blade, and cuts nice for a Sunday afternoon of whittling…...(See...

Great Value

Great Value

I picked up this digital caliper for around $30 at a local Rockler. So far I couldn’t be happier. I compared it to a $100+ Mitutoyo at work and they were within a half a thousandth at full scale (5-6 inches). It also has a larger battery, so I’m hoping that it will last longer than the smaller watch battery types. Whats in the box: 6” digital caliper, case, 2 batteries (one installed, one spare). http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=24524
