Wood River V3 low angle block plane.

Wood River V3 low angle block plane.

05-15-2011 05:40 PM by Florida_Jim | 4 comments »

Last Saturday I was at my local Woodcraft store. They had a 10% store wide discount. Well I was looking at their new wood River block planes. So for $80.99 plus tax, I bought the low angle version.It is very well made. The design is based on the Stanley #65. The bed is nicely machined so the plane iron fits very well. The plane iron is .118” thick. This gives a very nice finish. The iron on my old Stanley 60 ½ is 0nly .079” The iron only needed a bit of polishing, and a touch up with a ...

Hartville Tool Mortise Chisels and Bits

Hartville Tool Mortise Chisels and Bits

01-12-2009 05:01 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 4 comments »

I recently ordered the set for my new Jet JFM-5. I am very disappointed and will be buying a higher quality bit set. I’ll keep these cheaper chisels for rough work. I’m sure they won’t last long. You can find the link to the set here. Pros:1. Cheap Cons:1. This is a short set. This means that you’ll have to add your arbor extension to your mortiser.2. Not sharp, so you’ll have to sharpen them.3. Not ground to standard angle. I used the Lee Valley hones. A...

This is a must have DVD for every wookworker..It's not just for furniture designers

This is a must have DVD for every wookworker..It's not just for furniture designers

09-30-2011 11:16 PM by Angela | 4 comments »

I’m about finished making my TV stand. During the construction of the top, I thought there must be some formula to determine the overhang of the top. When I asked this question on LJ, I received a variety of answers but nothing with a formula. Since asking this question and designing my TV stand I came across a DVD produced by Lie-Nielsen called Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design. It discusses the proportions of furniture and how to determine the proportions of a piece of furnitur...

Craftsman Professional 10" Hybrid Table Saw

Craftsman Professional 10" Hybrid Table Saw

01-25-2008 03:14 AM by Tony Z | 4 comments »

I’ve had this saw for almost a year now and I love it. I got a great deal on it also. It retails for about $1100 but it went on sale for $1000 and then Sears had a deal for 20% off that and then combined that with no interest for a year. I couldn’t pass it up. I ended up getting it for $800! The saw comes with a Biesemeyer fence which is one of the best features. When I first used the saw with this fence, I could have cried. The Biesemeyer fence works like butter. I don’t k...

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

07-20-2009 06:09 PM by ShannonRogers | 4 comments »

I took a trip up to Chester County, PA this weekend to take a class with Chuck Bender’s school, The Acanthus Workshop. Chuck goes by the handle Acanthuscarver here on LJ. What a treat! I have been woodworking now for 7 years and hardly do I think of myself as an expert, but I admit to being a little dubious as to how much I would get out of a fundamentals I class. Because the focus was on hand tools, I was more optimistic because I am pretty new to the way of the Schwarz having R...

Seeing’s how the previous forum got a little off topic, I started a new one to update on the PJ882 purchase.The original post: “After finally giving up on Delta to turn things around, I decided to purchase the PJ882 model during the Thanksgiving sale promotion. After scouring the internet for recent reviews, I decided to move forward with this purchase as there really were no new positive or negative reviews. I deemed the lack of negative reviews as a good thing.After receiving my joint...

Almost a really good clamp

Almost a really good clamp

05-27-2014 01:38 PM by mramseyISU | 4 comments »

I recieved these clamps as part of a Mini Clamp-It set with two of the assembly squares which work really well and 4 of these clamps. I’ve had them for a little over a year and up until recently I really liked them. About a month back I was using them and as I tightened them down I noticed that the threads on the clamp were all bottomed out but they weren’t tight. That was funny I thought and then I noticed that the head was coming off of all of them. The flaw on these clamps is t...

Pretty good compressor

Pretty good compressor

12-31-2012 02:22 AM by Tedstor | 4 comments »

!!!!Update 4/17/13. SO I’ve been using this product for several months now. Its been flawless. I’ve used it for nailers, inflation, clean-up, and impact wrenches. It runs them all well. I originally mentioned that I disliked the orientation of the gauges. Senco positioned them facing inboard, rather than outboard. However, that hasn’t proved to be an issue in reality. That said, I take-back that gripe. Anyway, I just thought I’d re-affirm my admiration of this machine ...
