Veritas jointer fence

Veritas jointer fence

03-29-2014 04:35 PM by naked_wookie | 4 comments »

I recently picked up the veritas jointer fence from lee valley to use with my low angle jack plane to joint some 6/4 walnut for my wifes desk.I am fairly new to hand tools and with that I am not the steadiest when prepping boards edges yet.This fence changed that. I was able to joint the entire 7 foot length of my boards smoothly and nice and square.The instructions for this tool are very clear and explain what to do if your planes wings aren’t square to the sole.Thankfully mine is so t...

Hitachi C12FDH- a saw not even student contractors could kill

Hitachi C12FDH- a saw not even student contractors could kill

12-01-2012 05:27 PM by HarveyM | 4 comments »

I purchased this saw at the beginning of our home addition/renovation with the intention of using it to do the trim work. I wanted a professional quality saw without breaking the budget (I had the contractors for the budget busting). We had a 600 sq. ft new master bedroom/ensuite and family room added to our 960 sq. ft bungalow. The construction crew (Architecture students under a Professional Architect/construction contractor) immediately started using it for framing (honestly if I had real...

How do you keep your portable table saw dry in the back of your pickup truck...

04-22-2011 04:33 AM by Wood_smith | 4 comments »

I’ve had people asking for a cover for a folding, portable table saw. A lot of people fold them up and throw them in the back of the pickup truck. Then, off they go, down the road…and it starts to rain. Pull over, drag a tarp, or a piece of plywood on it, it’s raining and the tarp blows off… OR… pull the KerryAll Saw Pouch out from behind the seat (they fold up to about the size of a half-roll of paper towel. Two bungee cords and it’s secure.It’s ...

Forrest Woodworker II 40T #1 Grind (flat)

Forrest Woodworker II 40T #1 Grind (flat)

01-15-2012 03:53 AM by LeeInAZ | 4 comments »

I picked this up this week and got to use it on a project today. I needed to cut dado’s that were just under 1/4” (the smallest my dado stack will cut) in MDF. I made some test cuts first, and the bottoms were as dead flat as I had hoped. Here is a photo of a double pass to create a 7/32” dado in both sides of a piece of scrap MDF. The kerf was exactly 1/8” for a single pass. I was very pleased with the quality of the cut. This will be my go-to blade for cutt...

A nice bench-top sander for detail work

A nice bench-top sander for detail work

12-10-2008 11:47 PM by ferstler | 4 comments »

I picked up this narrow-belt, bench-top sander at Harbor Freight some time back for about thirty bucks, as I remember, and I think a version is also available from Grizzly as its model H3140 for about $55. The Grizzly specifications are a tad different, but it is clear from the Grizzly catalog photo that the two units are identical. Obviously, the Harbor Freight deal was a better one. The differences mentioned in the owner’s manual and the Grizzly catalog makes one wonder about published spec...

Delta 14-651--Looks Good

Delta 14-651--Looks Good

12-28-2010 08:55 PM by Geedubs | 4 comments »

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Clause…or at least a facsimile of him. Like many, I used to ogle the mortising machine Norm would use on New Yankee Workshop and say (to myself of course), ‘Yah, right, like I’ll ever have a machine like that!”. Well, thanks to some unexpected events, I recently found myself with a little extra cash and combined that with the sudden passion to own something I thought I would never have. Caveat—-had to be a good deal. So I start...

Whiteside Oval Edge Bit

Whiteside Oval Edge Bit

10-29-2013 12:31 AM by laketrout36 | 4 comments »

A new project called for a new router bit. Many members here on LumberJocks hold Whiteside router bits in high regard. This is the second Whiteside router bit I’ve bought this year and am once again completely satisfied with it. I’m currently making a small rustic cabin with log siding as a presentation/display/gift box. The Whiteside oval edge bit # 1476 is a 1/2” shank, 3/4” bead opening and met my requirements. Tonight I put it in the router and fed one board p...

Solidly built, great case.  Nothing cheap and plasticy about this

Solidly built, great case. Nothing cheap and plasticy about this

Typical Woodpeckers solid device, here. It’s a corner jig for rounded corners, as well as a chamfer jig for corners. There are 12 different sizes for rounded corners, from 1/4” to 1-1/2”, and 6 different sizes for chamfered corners, from 1/4” to 1-1/2” The jig is solidly milled out of aluminum, with generous tabs for clamping to your workpiece, as well as a solid stable surface for your router to rest on. I was able to easily rout corners in a variety o...

This review is from the January 2012 issue of our LJ eMag. Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details) Wild & Wacky Birdhouses and Feeders Wild and wacky is for sure!!! When I first got the book I immediately started picking out the birdhouses that I would like Rick to build this year. But, before I knew it I think I had every birdhouse checked. There is a cute “piano” feeder that will be a perfect draw prize at my brot...
