Great Deal

06-30-2008 03:17 PM by DannyBoy | 6 comments »

After being overly frustrated with the Craftsman router that I started out with (which still makes a good router for my router table), I finally broke down and bought this one this last weekend. I intended on picking up the Bosch combo at Lowes, but this one was on sale and I’m price minded to a fault. However, I can’t see how I could have made a better decision. The router is solid. 100%. I’ve not had the luxury of working with a mid-grade router like this before, bu...

Don't Eat this cookie,

Don't Eat this cookie,

05-01-2010 11:22 PM by RouterManiac | 6 comments »

I just got a set of these, and I was pretty surprised. I was a little hesitant to shell out $11 bucks for a glorified piece of wood but they work pretty good. They really remind me of a router mat that I bought a few years ago, they have the same type of non slip surface. You could probably make some from those drawer liners or non slip rug liners. But for me as busy as I am I would rather just buy them and keep going then stop and make them. Pretty cool though, I have to admit I will pr...

Tomz Double Shaft Knife Massager

Tomz Double Shaft Knife Massager

01-21-2013 03:48 PM by hairy | 6 comments »

I’ve been using this about 10 days now. I think that’s enough for an opinion. I should have bought this a long time ago. It just does what he says it does. The first 2 pics show what comes in the box. A 1200 grit diamond wheel, a 600 grit diamond wheel, leather strop wheel,Tormek paste, shop rags, a pad to keep it from scooting, instructions, and a sticker. I should give the sticker to my granddaughter, she loves stickers. Wait a minute, that might come back to haunt me. It&...

Rockler's remarkable red rubber sanding block

Rockler's remarkable red rubber sanding block

03-13-2012 06:37 AM by DHS | 6 comments »

I purchased a sanding block for the first time yesterday. I had taken my mother to lunch on Sunday afternoon and then to reward myself for this good deed I visited the local Rockler Woodworking store and browsed the discount racks. I bought some sanding disks, a quart of Titebond III, some space balls, and then just for the heck of it, I purchased a rubber sanding block for $3.99. What a wonderful device. I don’t know why I’ve never used one before. Perhaps it was my abrasive high-school...

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

01-13-2014 08:14 PM by brtech | 6 comments »

This insert is made by ColliBeck and available direct (via Ebay) or through Infinity. I purchased it from Infinity. The basic idea here is that it’s a CNC machined plate with a replaceable wooden insert. You can swap inserts in a minute or two, and either make your own, or buy them from Infinity. I have the newer version, which doesn’t use parts from the original Sawstop throat plate. The plate is a beast. Heavy, nicely machined, nicely anodized aluminum. The inserts th...

Video Review of my Excalibur Ex-21

Video Review of my Excalibur Ex-21

07-02-2013 12:32 AM by TripleB | 6 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

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

08-22-2016 01:26 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

I thought about blogging this, but didn’t know if that was the right spot to put it. Here’s my shameless plug for using paste wax/car wax for woodworking! I am not particular to one brand over another. They all work quite well. The main thing that makes them good is the carnauba wax. This is a really tough wax that stays in place for a long(er) amount of time. I use car wax on my steel surfaces, such as my tablesaw, jointer, bandsaw, etc. This protects them from rust, and...

Veritas Jointer Plane

Veritas Jointer Plane

(you can click the picture to go to Lee-Valley’s web site and read more if you so desire.) With Veritas I expect a good quality, mid-range tool and that’s exactly what I got. Like a kid at Christmas, I had to take a few swipes with it last night right out of the box. It did ok out of the box. Tonight I honed the blade and started getting her setup. The blade, the O1 version, was not as flat as I would have expected so I had to spend a good amount of time getting the back f...

Riser Block

Riser Block

07-12-2008 11:05 PM by khop | 6 comments »

The riser block made for the Grizzly G0555 14” bandsaw also works on the older Jet 14” saw. I compared the cost and it was a no brainer. The Grizzly H3051 Extension kit does the job for only $59.00 . This kit comes complete including a new 105” blade. The blade isn’t the best, so maybe order a good one for resawing. I also equiped this saw with new tires from Rockler. Most reviews say they are the ones to get. The cost of the tires are most resonable at rockler (HUH). ...

Impulse purchase - seems ok but..

Impulse purchase - seems ok but..

So in the question feed my addiction, I swung by Rockler. The protractor was on sale for $10. The sales guy told me that they are going to be on sale in the new flyer for $15. I’m kind of a sucker for measuring tools so I bought it. First impression – it is well made. The ruler moves smoothly and the tightening knob works well. The display is easily readable. It shows .1 degree measurements. Probably the biggest drawback is how you calibrate it. As you can see in the pict...
