Great guide for LJs looking to harvest and for general all around good knowledge

02-11-2014 01:35 AM by woodenwarrior | 5 comments »

My daughter and I love to go for walks in the woods near our house. When we do, I point out and explain to her all of the trees I know and how to identify them. However, my knowledge is limited and in the winter its much harder with a lack of foliage. My wife purchased this guide for me to take with us on our walks. It includes cut outs on the top of each fan of the index that displays the leaf and bark of the tree. Included is information concerning the range of the tree, average size...

Easy drilling of shelf-pin holes, but a bit of a hassel

Easy drilling of shelf-pin holes, but a bit of a hassel

02-01-2010 09:09 PM by mnorusis | 5 comments »

I needed to drill shelf pin holes for my closet remodel project. To save time I decided to purchase the woodhaven shelf pin jig and a self-centering shelf pin bit. At the local woodcraft, the only 1/4” option was this Snappy bit. It got the job done, but was a bit of a pain. The first side I drilled went rather smoothly, and I ran down the two lines in decent time. However, when I got to the second side of the shelf unit, the shavings kept getting clogged in the retracting self-...

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

My wife spoke words to me recently that I thought I’d never hear (at least not on her own volition). She told me that I should get a lathe! What a woman! I have been looking at “midi” sized lathes for a long time and really like the jet 12×20 I used at a woodcraft class. Two problems: There has not been a reasonably priced used Jet lathe go up for sale in the entire state in over six months (I’ve checked Craigslist and Ebay regularly). Second problem: new lathe...

Sun Brand Random Orbital Discs

Sun Brand Random Orbital Discs

06-04-2010 06:15 AM by tooldad | 5 comments »

Bought these at the wood show. We have gone through 6 boxes of them. However I didn’t count how many times a disc went flying. The velcro/hook and loop on the back doesn’t seem to stick that well. It’s not that the pad was worn out, one of the sanders we tried them on was new. For the most part they work, but you get what you pay for.

King Arthur Tools Carbide Abrasive Sphere Burr, 1/4"shank x 1" dia. P/N 11007

King Arthur Tools Carbide Abrasive Sphere Burr, 1/4"shank x 1" dia. P/N 11007

12-01-2011 07:23 PM by Greg | 5 comments »

I would like to give my 2 cents on a burr that I JUST started using to shape the concaved surfaced of my custom fly fishing nets. I was looking for a faster/easier way than using scrapers, rasps, and sanders. It’s a Carbide Abrasive 1” Sphere Burr by King Arthur. This Sphere Burr fit flex shafts, mini die grinders and air grinders and has a 1/4” shank x 1” diameter. It’s also available in European 6mm shanks.I use it on the lowest setting of my Rotozip which ...

Sand Devil

Sand Devil

11-11-2010 02:05 AM by bluejazz | 5 comments »

I hate sanding. Among woodworkers of course, that about is as unique an impression as ‘Hitler was a bad guy’. This tool truly does make sanding easier. First off, cutting sandpaper and getting it into my 3M sanding block was a major pain. I’m sure there are better choices than 3M in sanding blocks and making your own is an option. But this Sand Devil has been a huge improvement for me. First off even with my Sandpaper cutting jig, cutting to size is burdensome if ...

Unreliable metal detector --  save your money for a good one!

Unreliable metal detector -- save your money for a good one!

02-29-2008 07:45 PM by Hawgnutz | 5 comments »

This metal detector is reasonably priced at under $20, but you get what you pay for. When I tested this on a known area with metal under the wood (my workbench has screws attaching face to top), the detector failed to detect a #10 screw just under the wood’s surface! This is totally unacceptable. My jointer, planer. or bandsaw blades are too expensive to chance on this unreliable detector. A magnetic stud finder is much more reliable than this! Save your money for the Lumber Wizar...

Hot glue gun for woodworking

Hot glue gun for woodworking

11-11-2010 05:22 AM by WoodLe | 5 comments »

I bought this Hipurformer several months ago and I’m nothing but pleased with the performance of this high quality glue gun. I was a little hesitant to spend the money at first, but so far this glue gun is all that is bragged up to be! My first project for the Hipurformer was to assemble window headers that I was making for my house remodel. The headers are a flat board with crown moulding around the top, which are mitered at the corners. (so there are two very short pieces on the e...

The Great One

The Great One

06-06-2010 07:25 PM by Carpintonto | 5 comments »

It came already assambled and ready to go. There was only one minor problem with the mobile system of it. There is a pin that holds the spinning system to lower and raise the shaper, and it broke when trying lowering the mobile system. After hammering the pin out of the hole and inserting a nail for concrete instead, the Great One was ready to start chewing on wood. I thought it was going to make a hell of a noise, but… Surprise!!!, the Great One is at least 60% less noisy than my 1.5 h...
