Saved me a lot of time and money

Saved me a lot of time and money

09-08-2013 06:47 PM by bluejazz | 5 comments »

Despite years of trying, we never really broke our cat of racing up the stairs and then launching herself at the door jamb, semi-firmly grasping the molding with her claws and sliding down. The results were predictable. Selling the house provided an unwanted opportunity to test this product. There are two photos of the molding here, one before using Howard’s Restor-A-Finish (Golden Oak) and one after. I hope they do the improvement justice. If it turns out the photos don’t ...

High-tech and versatile skew block plane

High-tech and versatile skew block plane

06-12-2010 09:51 AM by live4ever | 5 comments »

I’ve never been able to restore a cheap or older block plane to complete satisfaction. Not knowing whether it was me or whether I was working with inferior quality, I became frustrated and resigned myself to never experiencing the titillating joy of transparent shavings and effortless planing. I began considering simply purchasing a high-quality block plane, either a Lie-Nielsen or Veritas, because I had wasted enough time trying to restore junk and a properly tuned block plane is t...

After a couple of years with the C10fl

After a couple of years with the C10fl

12-13-2011 06:14 PM by jeepers06 | 5 comments »

I have had my Hitachi for a couple of years. I have used it for ripping while building a huge deck on my house and also for various woodworking projects.I have noticed the Hitachi brand at lowes is now porter cable and brown. I bought my drill press there also, says Delta on mine and Porter cable on the new ones. I think Hitachi is juat a name (like sears) and these things are made on bid in China.I also only gave $300 for mine. I had coupon and the saw was on sale.I have actually been p...

Shop Fox w1820

Shop Fox w1820

03-18-2011 08:18 PM by waldo | 5 comments »

I have had my new Shop Fox for about 2 weeks now and I’d like to think that I have put it through the paces by now. The saw is 230v and 3hp, comes with dado insert, push stick, blade, wrenchs, etc. It took roughly 2 hours or so to get this thing put together and ready to go. I looked at the Grizzly g0691, but didn’t like that I could be denied the liftgate by the trucker, I live at the end of a cul-de-sac, so I went with the Shop Fox, there is a dealer 30 miles from me. Movi...

Eye Wash Cup

Eye Wash Cup

09-09-2013 11:33 PM by Stephenw | 5 comments »

You should always wear safety glasses. If sawdust or dirt gets in an eye, I’ll reach for a Flents glass eye wash cup. 1. Put some water or eye wash solution in the cup. 2. Hold the cup over the affected eye. 3. While holding the eye open, tilt the head back and wait a couple of seconds for the debris to float loose. 4. Tip the head forward. The water and debris will hopefully drain into the cup. 5. Repeat as needed with clean water or eye wash solution.

X-Horse ---They're BACK

X-Horse ---They're BACK

02-09-2010 04:17 AM by Scott Oldre | 5 comments »

I did a review on this indispensible tool a few months back. It appeared at the that these were unfortunately dropped from Home Depots inventory. That was a sad day even for someone that already has two of them. Well wandering through HD’s isles the other day, I found a whole stack of them. The ones I have use aluminum pillars, whereas the new ones are using heavy plastic. I doubt the difference has any effect on the sturdiness of the stand/bench but I do like the pretty alumin...

Thompson Lathe Tool Handles

Thompson Lathe Tool Handles

11-18-2010 06:48 PM by Big_Bob | 5 comments »

I was looking for two new lathe tool handles when I stumbled across the Thompson website. I was intrigued by the idea that the handles were square and not round. They are not truly square because the edges are rounded over, but they are not the traditional round shape. The idea being the turner’s right hand can feel the shape of the tool and know where the flute of the tool is facing. If for example the flat part is facing up then the flute is up if the edge is up then the flute is facing...

Nearly everything you could ask for in a scroll saw

Nearly everything you could ask for in a scroll saw

04-26-2012 02:11 PM by wbrisett | 5 comments »

I have a shop full of tools; bandsaw, planer, joiner, table saw, drill press, and scroll saw. One of the things I’ve loved doing over the past eight years or so is making things on the scroll saw. After initially buying a Craftsman scroll saw and putting it to use, I saw a need for a better saw. I found a great deal on a used PS Wood 21-in scroll saw that I used for the past seven years. However, recently I was making some gifts that required me to do some very delicate fret-type work. ...

Great Circular Saw

Great Circular Saw

10-17-2012 02:19 PM by pendledad | 5 comments »

So my experience is limited with circular saws. I used my Dad’s 1980’s craftsman a few times and I was always terrified at how loud it was. Anyways, I’m sure I would be very happy with any new circular saw that I purchased because I’ve really only used an old chunky low quality saw with a crappy blade. Anyways, here is my thought process on why I chose this saw and my first impressions from using it. Off to HD for some hands on… Step 1—FitRegardles...

The MLCS Multi Joint System

The MLCS Multi Joint System

09-10-2013 10:09 AM by Blackie_ | 5 comments »

As a new adventurous into box joint, joinery and after study and research I optioned for the router table version The MLCS Multi Joint System as for me swapping out a router bit is much more to my liking apposed to swapping out a tablesaw blade plus it’s easier and leaves a cleaner cut. I’ve had this system for a good bit and after trial and error during the learning phase, I now have a good grasp on how it works, am pleased with how it preforms, it’s ease in use and ready t...
