I was so excited to try making a picture frame for an old mirror I etched a long time ago… until I got this disaster of a clamp. Pros: Nylon band is an easy to see day-glow orange. Solid easy to grip handle Quick release tabs on either side makes it easy to size the band accordingly Really long band – like 15’ long. A bit large for a 12×12 picture frame, but I’m sure for an odd shaped item it would come in handy. Cons: Has a little notch (for la...

Delta 36-714 10-Inch left Tilt Hybrid Saw

Delta 36-714 10-Inch left Tilt Hybrid Saw

10-02-2009 10:23 PM by cstrang | 5 comments »

This is a good bang for your buck, when I originally purchased the saw I got it for around $1200, it is a little more pricy today but none the less a good buy. It comes wired for 120 from the manufacturer but when I received it I got my electrician friend to ramp it up to 240, not much that I have in my shop can bog it down now. In my old High school we had a saw just like this one with the sole difference of it being connected to standard 120, I notice a big difference between them, if you h...

THIS STUFF IS GREAT TO THE LAST DROP

THIS STUFF IS GREAT TO THE LAST DROP

If you have ever had rust on something where it shouldnt be… this is the stuff for you! Directions are as simple as submersing your rusted piece in the solution from 30 minutes to as long as you can stand to wait. Evapo-rust has no detectable odor out of the bottle and is a pale yellow color. After i submersed my piece(antique c-clamp) for a few hrs, noticeable progress had been made. I wasnt quite satisfied after the piece hd been submersed after a few hrs, as it was in bad shape, so I...

Great budget square - worth 5 stars at the price

Great budget square - worth 5 stars at the price

08-24-2013 12:53 AM by paxorion | 5 comments »

For the past few months, I have been looking for a replacement to an inexpensive contractor’s combination square (a freebie I got from my in-law’s hardware store during a trip many years ago). I had the opportunity to use a Starrett at my guild shop, and convinced myself I needed a replacement. To ensure I could focus my search, I came up with 4 criteria: – A solid cast head – Etched measurements that go up to at least 1/64 intervals – A more palatable price...

cordless brad nailer

cordless brad nailer

06-02-2010 05:46 PM by gardentiger | 5 comments »

Never owned a nailer before but I gotta say that this is a winner. It comes w/ a pack of nails in all sizes. I bought this particular one off of fleabay for $60 and $15 shipping. Having already bought a few of the 18v products, I did not need a battery. This would explain the somewhat low cost. The gun feels good in your hand, but has maybe a slight delay upon triggering(I adapted easily to that). After I bought the nailer I went to Amazon to read the reviews. There are some bad review...

A Good Deal, If You Know What You're Getting

Note: This review is an elaboration on my review at Amazon.com I am pleased with this plane. After lapping and honing, it did a good job cutting both long grain and cross grain rabbets. This is a shoulder plane (Iron goes all the way to the edge of the body) with a depth stop, fence, and side nicker (to cut across the end grain when planing across the grain). It also has 2 frogs to mount the iron, one normal near the center of the sole, and a second near the front of the plane for u...

Great guide for LJs looking to harvest and for general all around good knowledge

Great guide for LJs looking to harvest and for general all around good knowledge

02-11-2014 01:35 AM by woodenwarrior | 5 comments »

My daughter and I love to go for walks in the woods near our house. When we do, I point out and explain to her all of the trees I know and how to identify them. However, my knowledge is limited and in the winter its much harder with a lack of foliage. My wife purchased this guide for me to take with us on our walks. It includes cut outs on the top of each fan of the index that displays the leaf and bark of the tree. Included is information concerning the range of the tree, average size...

Easy drilling of shelf-pin holes, but a bit of a hassel

Easy drilling of shelf-pin holes, but a bit of a hassel

02-01-2010 09:09 PM by mnorusis | 5 comments »

I needed to drill shelf pin holes for my closet remodel project. To save time I decided to purchase the woodhaven shelf pin jig and a self-centering shelf pin bit. At the local woodcraft, the only 1/4” option was this Snappy bit. It got the job done, but was a bit of a pain. The first side I drilled went rather smoothly, and I ran down the two lines in decent time. However, when I got to the second side of the shelf unit, the shavings kept getting clogged in the retracting self-...

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

11-09-2010 05:06 PM by jred | 5 comments »

My wife spoke words to me recently that I thought I’d never hear (at least not on her own volition). She told me that I should get a lathe! What a woman! I have been looking at “midi” sized lathes for a long time and really like the jet 12×20 I used at a woodcraft class. Two problems: There has not been a reasonably priced used Jet lathe go up for sale in the entire state in over six months (I’ve checked Craigslist and Ebay regularly). Second problem: new lathe...
