HF Gerson Disposable Respirator - cheaper than cartridges

HF Gerson Disposable Respirator - cheaper than cartridges

03-26-2017 02:25 PM by Tennessee | 6 comments »

I have had numerous respirators over the years, with various cartridges, and a couple things have always bothered me about most.First, many of them don’t allow me to wear glasses properly, since the nose piece sticks up too high, causing my glasses to sit wrong and make my eyesight off.Second, those doggone elastic straps always, always get stretched out and hard, and now that most have gone to the cheap plastic hooks, the problem is worse. Sealing with these stretched out is almost imp...

I sold couple of my routers. Mainly the Ridgid trim router is gone and also my Dewalt DW621 which could have been the most perfect light weight router if it wasn’t for ……..Still have my favorite router DW625 and a second favorite Hitachi M12. But they feel heavy these days. Mainly in table use now. and my Stanley trim doesn’t have plunge so, I’ve had my eyes on this lightweight from Trend.well, here’s the Pros:Nice lookingPlunge Lever action lock ( my preference for plunge rou...

Good for the price-that's it

Good for the price-that's it

03-23-2008 05:21 AM by Woodshopfreak | 6 comments »

Here are the bits that I bought about three months ago for some up and coming projects. I like these bits becasue they came in a huge set, I belive 16, and it was only $25. They make flat bottomed holes, angled holes, and are just very nice. They do have there downside tough. They are very hard to use if not useing in a drill press, they tend to not want to start if your useing a drill. Some of them also have a slight wobble which is not so great, but most of them are perfect. They also tend ...

Good starter router, but could do better

Good starter router, but could do better

03-10-2010 05:13 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 6 comments »

As a beginning wood worker on a budget, I have opted for purchasing Ryobi products to fit the bill as the need arises. I’ve been mostly happy with this choice as I find it to be a pretty versatile router. I’ve had it for about a month now. The good:- it takes 1/2 or 1/4” router bits- variable speed that’s easy to adjust- comfortable- powerful enough. I’ve never had it bog down even when a ‘little’ too agressive- micro depth adjustment allows for mo...

Guinevere Sanding System Review

Guinevere Sanding System Review

04-25-2011 05:17 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 6 comments »

When turning bowls I have always been upset with the sanding that is required to remove the “rip outs” and the other soft areas. Well, I saw this tool online and checked it out. I purchased it last year and thought that I should add a review so other LJ had an idea as to it’s worth (MHO). As you can see in the picture it comes with a rounded head and a cylindrical head sanding attachment. Both are rubber bladders that when inflated hold the sanding piece in place. The...

Awesome Vibration Dampening

Awesome Vibration Dampening

02-12-2015 07:57 PM by CypressAndPine | 6 comments »

I’ll start by saying that I don’t notice much difference in the sanding ability of the 3 different orbital sanders I’ve owned. First was a cheap pawn shop Porter Cable, second was a cheap new Dewalt, and now this very expensive Bosch. All of them sand wood very close to equal. However there are two huge differences I will state: 1. VIBRATION: I’m an offshore electrician and I have every nerve, tissue, bone issue you could think of in my hands and lower arms. My o...

Very Nice 23ga Pin Nailer

Very Nice 23ga Pin Nailer

04-25-2011 06:49 PM by Michael J | 6 comments »

Admittedly, this is my first 23ga pinner, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. However, I have 3 other Porter Cable nails gun, so I do have some frame of reference when it comes to pneumatic nail guns. I had done a lot of research on pin nailers and was just about to make a purchase when I came across a few reviews on the Rotek 23ga pin nailer. The reviews I read were very favorable and I liked the features that it came with, especially at the $99 price tag. I was origina...

Review of the Video "Sam Maloof: A Fine Woodworking DVD Profile"

Review of the Video "Sam Maloof: A Fine Woodworking DVD Profile"

01-20-2008 12:26 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 6 comments »

Wow, want to feel overwhelmed, and very inadequate? Sort of like being the last kid to get underarm hair in gym class. I am in the process of building three more Maloof-Inspired Rocking Chairs. Two for a commission, the third as a piece for speculation sale. I have been working through my notes from the last one and preparing wood, and I ran across the Sam Maloof DVD as a recommended Amazon item. You know, those annoying multi-week advertisments from Amazon that keeps track of ever...

Excellent Clamps

Excellent Clamps

12-12-2012 08:07 PM by NiteWalker | 6 comments »

For a long time I’ve been looking for a good 12” clamp for my boxes I build. I’ve been through a few before I tried the Bessey Tradesman clamps, and I wish I had sooner. I tried the regular duty jorgensen 3700 series clamps. Those were ok, but you had to pay extra for clamp pads. But the dealbreaker for me was that the bars flex way too much for a 12” clamp. I also tried the heavy duty jorgensen 3700-HD series clamps. Those are great and have no bar flex at 12”...
