Solid brad nailer

Solid brad nailer

01-27-2009 04:39 AM by sry | 4 comments »

After debating for a while, I decided to buy this brad nailer. I was torn between this and the PC 2” model, but when I couldn’t find a good deal on the compressor/nailer combo kit I decided to go a different route. I’m glad I did (although I’m sure the PC nailer would have been great) I went to Home Depot and Lowes to handle some different nailers and see which ones I liked: weight, ease of loading, tip visibility, etc. I ended up choosing this one simply because i...

DeVilbiss MGQ-500

Air Gun: DeVilbiss Part of a good finish into the wood or the application of automotive paint, much depends on the gun used, among other factors.Speaking of brands, DeVilbiss, is for me the best brand of air guns in Mexico. But talk of quality is also talk about cost, and the products of this brand is expensive in comparison with the other brands mentioned. DeVilbiss MGQ-500 Currently this model is the most sold in Mexico, it can get at Homedepot or a Wal-Mart. For continuous esca...

Like everyone else, I’ve used tons of different bike locks and padlocks to protect my tools and equipment. But I recently found a really nice cable system that is specifically designed to protect contractors’ tools. It’s called a Skyd Cable System. It has a 20 foot retractable cable that is housed in a diamond plate aluminum box. The box is bolted into the bed of your truck. Mine is in between the wheel-well and tailgate, and it’s out of the way in that location. Overall, the cable sy...

Dewalt DC390 6 1/2" Circular Saw w/ 18v XRP battery

Dewalt DC390 6 1/2" Circular Saw w/ 18v XRP battery

04-16-2010 11:39 PM by Derek Lyons | 4 comments »

I don’t recall how much I paid for this saw as I bought it on a Black Friday sale from Lowe’s last year, and it’s sat over the winter. I finally got to drag it out to trim some 3/4” OSB for my workshop remodel, and wow. I was concerned about how much pressure I’d have to use to get through the material – but I was halfway done with the cut before I realized I was exerting almost no pressure at all. It’s been zipping through the cuts like a sports c...

Lee Valley Picture Framers/Glaziers Hammer

Lee Valley Picture Framers/Glaziers Hammer

07-22-2012 09:23 PM by JohnnyB | 4 comments »

I have had mixed results – mostly poor – when driving brads into picture frames to secure the pictures. Lots of bent brads. Because I was about to install glass in a cabinet door using strips of wood held in place by brads, and because I did not want to mess up at this final stage in my project, I ordered one of Lee Valley’s special picture framing hammers. This hammer has a rotating triangular head with a totally flat face, and a round head with a flat face. In use, the two...

Dust Deputy Delux Kit

Dust Deputy Delux Kit

10-07-2011 07:06 AM by Andy123 | 4 comments »

I received the kit today and I was excited to try this sucker out. (No pun intended….Okay maybe a little) The kit had all of the bolts, washers and nuts. It went together easily, but the directions were not perfectly clear. The only complaint of assembly is that there was not enough copper tape included to ground the system as suggested. I took the system to my shop and hooked it up to my Shop vac. The cyclone’s connections were tapered so connecting to my vac was easy. I cleaned ...

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

I am always on the lookout for quality products at a low price. Since I started turning I have been looking for power sanding accessories that are a better value than what is available through Woodcraft. After quite a bit of searching and comparing I finally decided to give 2Sand.com a shot. After my 1st test drive of their Blue Micron Bowl Sanding Discs I am really impressed! Price When comparing price to Woodcraft there is not comparison. A 5 disc pack Hook & Loop discs from Woodc...

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

10-09-2011 01:00 PM by Don Johnson | 4 comments »

I obtained this product from ALDI, and I appreciate that they may not have outlets all over the world, but for UK (and German ?) LJs, looking for a cheap and cheerful dust collector to go before a domestic vacuum cleaner, at £14.99 this could be a useful accessory. The ports are simply positioned vertically in the top, so there is probably little cyclone effect, and the system depends on the included Herpa filter to prevent ‘nasties’ getting to the driving vacuum cleaner. But...

Scheppach Deco-Flex - a decent starter scrollsaw for an OK price

Scheppach Deco-Flex - a decent starter scrollsaw for an OK price

05-31-2013 05:57 AM by Skiedra | 4 comments »

+ nice working capabilities+ normal operating noise+ large “throat” depth+ takes both pin and pinless blades+ the addons and the rotary tool is a perfect addition to a beginner scrollsawer. So you do not need to buy a dremel or any similar rotary tool - bit painful process to change the blades. You have to rotate 3 screws, 2 on top, 1 at the bottom of the saw.- you seriously need to bold it down, otherwise it moves- attached rotating bit are a bit too “toyish”, but does some light sanding/...
