Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

11-22-2008 05:21 AM by Built2Last | 7 comments »

First, sorry but I couldn’t get a picture of the final cut to load so I loaded a picture of one of my glider’s. Check out this by MCLS!! http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/ec081111.html While I have not acutally used theirs, I did take atwo 100 grit sanding discs that were 12 inch and cut them down to 9 inch and put them on an old bosch blade that I knew left a lot of saw marks and I was amazed at how smooth the rips came out. I usually use a Forrest woodworker...

Oneway spindle steady

Oneway spindle steady

02-20-2010 07:14 AM by hairy | 7 comments »

When you need one, you might as well get one. This is a real good one. I unpacked it, assembled onto a spindle I was working on, then read the directions. I had it right, it does just what I expected without any troubles. It holds it steady when turning,and any further shaping I did after the turning. No money wasted on this one. The big mistake I made was just getting the spindle steady, they make a bowl steady that you can attach the spindle jaws to. I don’t think I can go the other ...

Kreg Deck Jig Hidden Fastener System

Kreg Deck Jig Hidden Fastener System

06-28-2010 04:36 PM by knothead | 7 comments »

I was very excited to get the Kreg Deck Jig this summer as I am replacing the deck at my home. The new deck is a 10’ X 16’ floating deck, framed in the usual manner with PT lumber for the structure and Western Red Cedar (5/4×6) decking and trim. I have a most favorable opinion of Kreg tools generally, however in the Deck Jig they might have missed the mark just a little bit. I have a few observations….... 1. The jig is formed of the familiar blue plastic, but I fi...

Homemade veneer flattening solution

Homemade veneer flattening solution

11-09-2009 11:59 PM by RBWoodworker | 7 comments »

I recently purchased a veneer pump, and got some veneer along with the deal.. but the veneer that I got, was rolled in a protective paper and left for who know’s how long.. it took the curve of the roll well and would not lay flat no matter what I did.. I put it between two platens and left it for 3 weeks and that did not do the trick…SO.. Lee Jesberger has this solution on his website prowoodworkingtips.com and it consist of 1 gallon of water..8 oz. of pure glycerin which is avai...

Norton Waterstone set IM83  in box

Norton Waterstone set IM83 in box

06-28-2010 04:55 PM by Ollie | 7 comments »

This is just a quick review of the Norton waterstone set in a carrying case.I only purchased this set after a lot of deliberation and bargain hunting. I paid £230 for the set, after first checking the price of all the stones individually, including the flattening stone.It worked out that I was only paying £20 for the box and free DVD that comes with it. I think that having the box is worth it just to keep the stones out of harms way and ready to go. Upon receipt of the kit I first watched ...

Ezee-Feed Industrial Infeed Table - Long Term Review, on it's second installation

Ezee-Feed Industrial Infeed Table - Long Term Review, on it's second installation

11-09-2012 08:05 PM by OggieOglethorpe | 7 comments »

Often on Lumberjocks, we see lots of reviews of items from folks who have just purchased the item. The Ezee-Feed device I’m writing about has proven it’s value again and again, over the last several years. I purchased this device several years ago, direct from the manufacturer, via ezee-feed.com. I paid full retail price, plus shipping, for the product. This review is 100% my opinion. I work alone. Sheet goods, especially MDF-cored products are heavy! Like most folk...

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

Sawstop PCS with Incra TS-LS and Dust collection mod.

09-24-2017 04:23 AM by Rudy81 | 7 comments »

After many years of working on a basic Jet JWTS-10 that I got off Cragislist, I finally got a chance to purchase a Sawstop PCS. The saw purchase came after adding a Clear View Cyclone to the shop, but that’s another story. The Sawstop packaging was outstanding. Ease of assembly and directions were excellent. Fit and finish were also excellent and I found the tool alignment and calibration to be very good right out of the box. I purchased the PCS 3hp. unit with the 52” fence sys...

Freud Adjustable (Ogee) rail and Stile Bit Set

Freud Adjustable (Ogee) rail and Stile Bit Set

06-28-2010 08:46 PM by Drew | 7 comments »

Nice set of bits.I paid $120, about $20 more then the non-adjustable set. Pros:-Quality cut. Very nice, clean, single pass cut. Better then my Grizzly (purple set).-Versatile. I will leave the details to Freud Cons:-Directions. I had to go online (not to Freud, but to Woodcraft) to find instructions. Even then the instructions are not as detailed as I would have liked. I wish they would show you how many shims to use to achieve a certain width groove. Not just “and shims a...

Amazingly useful tape measure that won't fall over

Amazingly useful tape measure that won't fall over

12-03-2017 07:13 PM by Rayne | 7 comments »

Hey LJ’s. I came across this piece of magic a while ago thinking it might be a gimmick, but this has been my goto tape measure for the past 3 months. I don’t how exactly how it works but this little guy lays flat on any surface with the tape pulled out. No more falling over while measuring or tape going out of shape cause the body won’t sit still. Easy to use and work with. 5 Stars all around. Craftsman Sidewinder 25' tape measure Pros-Lays Flat!-Auto lock when tape...

This book review is from the April 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Working Drawings of Colonial Furniture By Frederick J. Bryant Oh how I wish I was a “real” woodworker. This book has the plans for the most beautiful furniture, including a gate-leg table that is very similar to an heirloom piece I have that was passed down from my great-grandfather, a banjo clock (I’d never heard of this...
