Garrett Wade Aluminum Straight Edge  38 inch

Garrett Wade Aluminum Straight Edge 38 inch

11-04-2010 03:08 AM by barryvabeach | 7 comments »

I just received a Garrett Wade aluminum straight edge 38 inch and wanted to post a review. First, years ago Garrett Wade had lots of woodworking tools, but seem to have cut way back lately. I looked at their steel straightedges last year, but the quoted tolerances were awlful ( IIRC .0005 per inch ) The aluminum straight edge is quoted at .002 over the whole length, which is pretty good. I have a granite surface plate that allowed be to check up to about 20 inches at a time, and could n...

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

08-21-2008 12:39 AM by SteveKorz | 7 comments »

I bought this DVD to gain a better understanding of Marquetry. I was very impressed with Silas Kopf’s methods of teaching his craft. Silas described multiple methods of marquetry and parquetry in his DVD. To watch him work gave me an exponential amount of knowledge. I don’t know that I would have obtained all that knowledge if I just read a book or looked at pictures. The back of the DVD case says: Silas Kopf demonstrates the most important ways marquetry and inlay have ...

Exceptional saw at a terrific price!

Exceptional saw at a terrific price!

07-18-2016 03:58 PM by John Mills | 7 comments »

After my disappointment with Central Machinery, I have been cautious about purchasing large shop equipment, but I couldn’t be happier. I went down to the Grizzly scratch and dent sale in Springfield, MO this past June. I was specifically looking for a new bandsaw as my old 12” Craftsman (circa 1965) was just worn out. There were plenty of store models out in the tents, and a few really banged up saws too. I picked the G0555P which was selling at $545 minus the 10% discount for mil...

G0490X jointer

03-04-2011 02:00 AM by TJU | 7 comments »

It has taken me a few weeks but I have finally got my new planer and jointer all adjusted and running. I ran about 30 bf a cherry through them for a project I am working on. This is the first Grizzly purchase that I have made and I will definitely look at Grizzly when I go to upgrade my 9” crapsman band saw that I got for $35 on Craig’s list.The fit and finish we about what I expected. I took about 5 minutes to file the sharp edges and scrape a few drops of paint off the jointer fenc...

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.

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

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...

Simple hand held wands to you sweep over something to detect any metal...

MLCS (Katana) Lock Miter Joint Router Bit (w/Addendum)

09-14-2017 08:16 PM by Andybb | 7 comments »

Not really sure if this is a blog or a review or both. I don’t usually write reviews but I had such a good experience with this that I thought I would. Some background…. I needed to make some professional looking joints for some jewelry box drawer carcasses I was making with 1/2” stock. Someone suggested the Rockler Miter Fold Dado Set but at $350 it seemed a little spendy. That put me on to the Infinity Jr. Lock Miter bit for $70 plus another $10 for the setup bl...
