Easy and works

Easy and works

Disclaimer, this was a free sample I received many months ago. Odie’s Oil is a mix of wax(es) and oil(s) that works like a friction polish but can also be applied to flat work. I don’t know exactly what is in it and it has a very distinct smell that I find pleasing. The claim is a little bit will go a long way and initially I tried applying with a paper towel and was disappointed, not only does the towel absorb too much of the finish but the paper sticks and leaves little fuzzb...

I have had this biscuit joiner the (JM82) for a few months and it has worked well. It’s easy to adjust and handle. It seem a little more powerful than a porta cable one that I had used, it get up to full speed quicker than the PC. The case is nice, but the bag location is a little awkward. It would also be nice if there were a better way to store extra biscuits in it. Additionally the cord gets bent pretty tight when put in the case, just past the strain relief on the unit, I cu...

An Honest Review of the MicroJig GB-1 Push Block

An Honest Review of the MicroJig GB-1 Push Block

12-30-2014 05:52 AM by ontheworkbench | 5 comments »

I received this as a gift this holiday season, and not from MicroJig. I got a chance to test it out and much to my surprise, it really does live up to the hype that I see on-line. Compared to my old smaller push blocks, this one is larger, has extra push feet, and an accessory mount to provide extra shielding from a saw blade or a router bit. Pros:-Griping surface really grabs the wood-Push feet drop with gravity-Ergonomic handle Cons:-Could be too large from some applications-If not ca...

Good Drill Press for $70

01-22-2015 12:03 AM by edwood1975 | 5 comments »

If your on a budget then this is the press for you here are some pros and cons… Pros:1. Light is a great feature especially when trying to position a brad point on your workpiece2 Small enough to fit under a bench at 23” high3 Cast iron base and shelf makes it extremely sturdy but a con appears when trying to move and position the 6×6” shelf it’s very heavy4. Overall I like it Cons:1. Hard to position wood on shelf as its too small( that’s why I buil...

Real affordable quality

Real affordable quality

01-28-2008 11:37 AM by Rob McCune | 5 comments »

This machine has me hooked on Jet tools. I had really thought high quality cost a lot more. Granted it doesn’t have some of the features of it’s PowerMatic cousin (they are made by the same company). Power: More than enough. I haven’t been able to slow it down facing 6” wide boards. Reliability: Rock solid, the only issue I have had is with dust collection. As long as you have a dust collector hooked up there is no issue, but if you try to use just the chip ...

My Jet bandsaw is coming on 4 years old. I know because I bought it at the IWF in 2004.It has the “Carter-style” roller guides.The lower guides adjust on a cam to get close to the blade.There are a number of folks I let use my saw but I will accept responsibility for not loosening the adjusting nut. In any case, the cam broke.First call to Jet got me a very nice, but unknowledgeable young lady who passed me over to a guy in service who said that he would fax me a parts list. (Nowh...

Ian Kirby's "The Way to Woodwork" 3 DVD set is a big disappointment

Ian Kirby's "The Way to Woodwork" 3 DVD set is a big disappointment

02-22-2012 10:52 PM by dckchk | 5 comments »

I purchased the three DVD set “The Way to Woodwork” for use as a partial “instruction manual” for my grandsons to use with a full workshop that I have recently provided them. After reviewing all three videos in this set I must say I am very disappointed. I found the universal “critical path” description to be a sensible way to describe a basic woodworking methodology. However, as it is laid out in these DVD’s, it is not successfully developed. Fur...

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Improved switch design, great dust collection

02-24-2012 01:24 AM by nwbusa | 5 comments »

Update: I’ve owned this sander now for over a year, and it has gotten a lot of use. It’s been a great tool with no problems, so I’ll leave the five stars in place. The original review follows: I haven’t had this sander long yet, so my 5 star rating is based ondesign and recent performance. After I have used it for a longerperiod of time, I’ll come back and update my rating if warranted. I really want to comment on two aspects of the sander design. First,t...
