Easy on the fingers.

Easy on the fingers.

10-25-2011 01:45 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 5 comments »

I’ve seen these little jobs hanging around the spray paint for a while now and I’ve been dying to give one a try. I went for the RustOleum brand as opposed to the generic one next to it. (about a $2 difference) I am very happy to say, after painting a wheelbarrow, a 55 gallon drum, a planter box and 6 Halloween decorations, my fingertip did not have the traditional ache that comes with using spray paint all weekend. It is well balanced and very comfortable to use for long periods ...

Great product, even better support!

Great product, even better support!

06-22-2011 02:44 AM by felkadelic | 5 comments »

I originally picked this up last fall at Rockler, at a significant discount from the $84.99 MSRP (I believe I got it for $49.99). At the time, I didn’t have a table saw with a standard miter slot, so I was only able to use this on my router table for routing the end of pieces. While it worked just fine for that task, I held off judgment until getting a table saw so that I could use this for its main intended purpose. A couple weeks ago I got a new (to me) Unisaw and was finally abl...

Infinity's 010-060 - Fine Crosscuts and General Purpose Versatility In One Blade

Infinity's 010-060 - Fine Crosscuts and General Purpose Versatility In One Blade

03-13-2009 08:22 PM by knotscott | 5 comments »

This is an amazingly clean cutting blade and it happens to have good versatility too. The Hi-ATB teeth are exceptional for crosscutting, but it also rips very cleanly in material to ~ 6/4”. It’ll excel in fine veneered plywood, melamine, hardwood, or other laminate, and is versatile enough to be used for general purpose work. It’s cleaner cutting than my Forrest WWII, Ridge Carbide, Tenryu, DW7657, and Infinity Combomax, though it doesn’t rip as aggressively. It’...

Whittlers and Carvers - Great book!

Whittlers and Carvers - Great book!

06-22-2011 03:27 PM by MsDebbieP | 5 comments »

This book review is from the June-July 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw!Whittling Little Folk by Harley Refsal In the informative yet humorous opening to this great little book, the author discusses the difference between whittling and carving. I would interpret his distinction as “a rose by any other name is still a rose”: it’s all about cutting away pieces of wood. The book, “Whittling Little ...

Video Review of my Excalibur Ex-21

Video Review of my Excalibur Ex-21

07-02-2013 12:32 AM by TripleB | 5 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks, After using a $10.00 scroll saw that I bought off of Craigslist for a couple years, I decided it was time to break out the bucks and upgraded to an Ex-21 saw. That was a year ago, now that I have the technology to make boring videos I figured I should do a review of it since that seems to be the thing to do when you make videos. So here is my less than spectacular video review of my EX-21. And just in case your wondering, just try and take my EX from me, I dare ya!!lol

Safety First Featherboard

Safety First Featherboard

02-09-2011 04:48 PM by woodklutz | 5 comments »

I know that the other day I wrote that we should make our own jigs rather than get hyped into buying one.Well it seems that I WAS WRONG when it came to featherboards. This device from Milescraft is well made, practical and eye appealing. It comes complete with fittings for both 3/4 and 5/8 miter slots.I ordered the double set from Amazon, this really makes sense both dollar wise and usefulness. I leave one on the router table fence and one in the table saw slot. Moving one or the other when ...

Hollow Fast Articulating Arm with Laser

Hollow Fast Articulating Arm with Laser

01-23-2013 06:30 PM by Tom Coster | 5 comments »

Up front I want to be clear: I have no prior experience with any hollowing system except with handheld style tools. After using an articulating arm my other hollowing tools have become wall art. The hollow fast system with laser cost $399.00 from Amazon. I chose the system that mounts to the tailstock via a normal morse taper on my Jet 1236 lathe. A small chain wraps around the tailstock. When you crank out the tail stock the chain pulls the taper back tightly into the tailstock. A bracket ex...

Pulling nails... it doesn't get any easier than this.

Pulling nails... it doesn't get any easier than this.

03-16-2009 08:07 PM by Nick M. | 5 comments »

So I’m new to this whole wood working thing. In the short time I’ve been doing some renovation work to my house, I’ve found the biggest headache I have is removing fasteners from wood I want to reclaim, or reuse. With what I had on hand I had the tendency to get a little frustrated and literally destroy the wood during a fit (must be my Irish blood), or marring it to a point it was rendered useless. While searching online a week ago I found an interesting device (i won&...

The Bowsaw

The Bowsaw

07-09-2008 04:24 PM by lethentymill | 5 comments »

Like the spokeshave, the bowsaw is very useful to the chairmaker. Some people like them, some hate them. Teaching evening classes have made me aware of this. If I feel that I’m in a corner; “Do I have to use this thing ?”If “People use them a lot more on the Continent” hasn’t worked, and “Do you know how much a good bandsaw costs?” hasn’t worked either; feeling that it is unreasonable to expect to learn a skill like this in half-an-hour I usually mutter something about how it’s another ha...

May, 2010this review is from the May, 2010 issue of our eMag The Ultimate Band Saw Book by our very own Donna Menke As always I am as fascinated by the author’s story as I am the book itself. Reading about Donna having the balance of a mother’s push to try new things along with a father’s guidance at doing a job well, to using art, math, and engineering skills to create the plans for the band saw boxes, well, I was hooked from the start! I knew the book was going to be...
