Harbor Freight 3" x 21" Variable Speed Belt Sander

Harbor Freight 3" x 21" Variable Speed Belt Sander

08-08-2010 07:41 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 4 comments »

Never had a need for a belt sander. Occasionally I thought it would help to have one around just in-case but the prices on belt sanders are ludicrous. Up until now…. HF has two belt sanders on sale and I had a 20% coupon so I took the plunge especially since I desperately needed some aggressive sanding to remove glue from large panels.I decided on this 3”x21” instead on the other one that’s 4×24. Mainly because I liked the weight and I feel that the 6 amps is more than adequate for sa...

Harbor Freight Bench Grinder Stand: Solid, great value

Harbor Freight Bench Grinder Stand: Solid, great value

01-05-2011 04:49 AM by Mark Colan | 4 comments »

With Harbor Freight, it really pays to go into the store and see what you’re getting, because their product quality varies a lot. I looked first at their “universal tool stand” (big enough for a planer), and found it more than a bit flimsy, due to thin sheet metal construction. But the bench grinder stand is very solid, made of steel that is 1/16 thick. The parts fit together with holes lining up perfectly, and the design makes the assembly very stable. The bolts and n...

A strong follow-up to Ventura's first band saw book

A strong follow-up to Ventura's first band saw book

07-06-2009 10:03 AM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Price: $18.24 at Amazon. Buying used or from Half.com (thanks Jim) might help you find it cheaper. Like many here at LJs, I throoughly enjoy making band saw boxes. My first inspiration for these was Lois Keener Ventura’s “Building Beautiful Boxes with your Band Saw” book. This is a “sequel” to that first book. I’ll be hunting that review down and posting for that one later on as well. I have posted a bunch of reviews on Amazon and am migrating the woo...

Newest 12 Volt Lith

Newest 12 Volt Lith

01-07-2011 09:05 PM by Hermando | 4 comments »

I just wanted to share the latest addition to my cordless tool set. I have been building my Makita LXT inventory throughout the years. In the past I have used several brands of the 12 volt lithium sets. I first bought a Sears Nextec drill/jigsaw/flashlight set. It actually was a good set, but I found a few annoying things about the tools. The sears drill had a sticky speed switch and the jigsaw was awkward to hold in your hand and switch on. It worked better as a reciprocating saw. To ofte...

A very versatile block plane

A very versatile block plane

01-22-2008 04:17 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 4 comments »

This Skewed Block Plane can be used for many operations. It can be used to work on end-grain, like a standard block plane. It has a fence and nicker so that you can work on tenons and rabbets. The nicker can be moved so that it is engaged or not. I’ve used it to clean up some tenons and it work beautiful. The skew blade really helps to reduce tear-out when going across the grain. I haven’t added an auxiliary fence to mine yet, but it’s coming soon. It come in Iron o...

More bowls less shavings

More bowls less shavings

01-02-2009 03:13 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 4 comments »

I was given the opportunity to test out the Steussy 6” bowl saw and I was impressed. I have used several different coring systems to get multiple bowls from one blank but always felt that the cost of most of these would keep most turners from purchasing. Dick Steussy has created an inexpensive tool that gives even novice turners the opportunity to get two or three bowls out of one blank.The bowl saw has a good handle to hold what looks like sawsall blade on steroids. You mount your b...

Great saw for a beginning woodworker

Great saw for a beginning woodworker

01-22-2008 06:29 AM by jstewart | 4 comments »

I’ve owned my saw for only a year now, so I haven’t had as much time with it as many of the other LJs out there. Still I think I’ve become good friends with it already. As a person that is new to woodworking, I think this saw is outstanding. Up front, let me make this clear. The model number 36-979 refers only to the saw with 2 cast iron wings. I bought the Delta 36-980 which is the saw (36-979) plus a 30” T-fence. Other Delta models such as the 36-977, 978, 98...

Easywoodtools faceplate

Easywoodtools faceplate

05-09-2011 06:05 PM by hairy | 4 comments »

This deserves more than 5 stars. High quality at a good price. Item F625 I got myself in a situation where I needed 2 faceplates at the same time. The other in the second picture is made by Don Pencil, another very good one. I looked around the web and decided on this one. Woodcraft had it at the exact same price that easywoodtools did, so I cut out the middleman. It was on my front porch almost 24 hours after I ordered it. It came from Lexington, Ky. That’s about a 2 hour driv...
