Great Light, many uses.

This is really a great little light, comes with a wall power adapter, and runs off ‘AAA’ batteries. I keep it on one of my band saws with the light beam focused right at the blade and it works very well, the magnet holds VERY strong. When I want to use it else where such as on my mortising machine, I simply unplug it and use the battery power for that bit of time. I caught it on sale but I feel its well worth the regular price of $30. It also comes with a clamp on mounting pla...

Forrest Woodworker II 40T #1 Grind (flat)

Forrest Woodworker II 40T #1 Grind (flat)

01-15-2012 03:53 AM by LeeInAZ | 5 comments »

I picked this up this week and got to use it on a project today. I needed to cut dado’s that were just under 1/4” (the smallest my dado stack will cut) in MDF. I made some test cuts first, and the bottoms were as dead flat as I had hoped. Here is a photo of a double pass to create a 7/32” dado in both sides of a piece of scrap MDF. The kerf was exactly 1/8” for a single pass. I was very pleased with the quality of the cut. This will be my go-to blade for cutt...

Pretty Satisfied with Replacement for my Bosch Sander

Pretty Satisfied with Replacement for my Bosch Sander

02-12-2015 03:27 AM by CharlesA | 5 comments »

I’ve had my Bosch 1295DVSK ROS for several years and have been mostly happy with it, but two things have been a disappointment: 1) it chatters more than it seems reasonable; and, 2) the vacuum attachment doesn’t hold well anymore, partially due to the rubber ring on the sander itself getting brittle. I’ve read several reviews of the DeWalt, so I decided to see if it was the answer. This reconditioned model is only $59 at CPO Three observations: 1) I did not do a direc...

Almost in my own backyard.

Almost in my own backyard.

12-14-2014 03:05 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

Howdy, I had an awesome morning. Yep I got up early. Fixed this here PC and waited for a reply to my text. I got it around 8.30 AM. I was on the road by 8.45 and heading up North to a town called Sherman Texas. I had been looking forward to this little trip for a month. I had a little extra driving to do after I hit Sherman but oh what a drive. I made this drive to buy some live edge siding – but not for siding. I’m going to build my daughter’s bed f...

Craftsman jointer

Craftsman jointer

06-12-2016 10:50 PM by Spoctor | 5 comments »

I work at Sears and had walked by this jointer many times, noting its $229 price tag. I walked by it again the other day and saw that it was being closed out at a fraction of that price. I jumped.It had been on display for a good while. The blade guard had been broken off and the spring lost. The push blocks were also missing, but those are easy to replace. The safety key was missing from the power switch. Fortunately, three of my other power tools have keys that fit it.This jointer weights 5...

Happy so far, expecting it to stay so.

A bandsaw had been on my wish list for a number of years. I had been planning on getting a Rikon 10-325. In February, I heard about the Laguna 1412. While the Rikon was a couple hundred dollars cheaper, I was expecting to want to immediately replace the guides for the difference in price, plus some, it then became a no-brainer. And the Laguna had a mobility kit designed for the saw while the Rikon would need a third party set of wheels. When Woodcraft offered a free worklight with the saw,...

Wen Rotary Tool

Wen Rotary Tool

01-17-2012 05:24 AM by Raymond | 5 comments »

I was at Menards the other day, and they had this Wen variable speed rotary tool on sale for 9.99 regulary 24.99. I could not resist and picked up two of them. Comes with 100 piece accesory kit. The variable speed works well and a keyless chuck is a nice touch. It’s nice and quiet to. Can’t go wrong for under 10.00 each. It is not to heavy and and is easy to hold. The spindal lock sometimes gets in the way, but that is probably how I am holding it. Here are the specs • Powe...

My go-to HF Freebie.  Keep a look out for no-purchase freebie coupons.

My go-to HF Freebie. Keep a look out for no-purchase freebie coupons.

12-14-2014 04:03 AM by paxorion | 5 comments »

The Harbor Freight item numbers 69111 and 69052, is a mini LED flashlight that is my go-to HF freebie. This is also one of the products that continues to pop up as a no-purchase freebie. I keep them all over my car and house because I pick one up with a no-purchase coupon almost every time I am at HF and don’t buy anything. From a performance standpoint, the LEDs are bright, and it will do the job. Since I have them scattered (at least 2) in every room of my house, I never have to...

Great Workshop Helper - Horrible Directions

Great Workshop Helper - Horrible Directions

well i just got my second workmate so i figured that i could do a review on this one because it is the newer version (my old one was the one my dad had for about 10-15 years. it is a great little shop helper. it works at a vise, a workbench, and if you put a piece of plywood on it when it is fully extended than i little assembly table. there are many many little uses that you will find for this around the shop. they last a long time as my dad’s did also.the only reason why his broke was...

Great little product

Great little product

03-23-2008 05:33 AM by Woodshopfreak | 5 comments »

This is the jig saw that I got about three years ago. It is a great little saw, and cuts like you wouldn’t belive. There is a few things that I love about this saw, first, the fact that it has dust collection is a big plus in my book. There is a little shroud, if I am saying that correctly that captures a decent amount of dust, and there is a blower on the other side to push it to the shroud. Another cool feature is the quick disconect blade thingy. It is really simple ot change from a ...
