Harbor Freight 14" x 40" Wood Lathe: Best for the Small Shop?

Harbor Freight 14" x 40" Wood Lathe: Best for the Small Shop?

03-11-2016 04:15 PM by ThomasLightle | 6 comments »

As always comments are welcome and encouraged. I have been looking into buying a lathe for some time now. I mainly need it to turn some simple dowels, but I would like to pick up the skill of turning beautiful pieces as well.The Harbor Freight 14” x 40” wood lather is mostly written off by critics mainly because it is an entry-level tool by Harbor Freight. I use this video to highlight why I think it is perfect for my shop and my needs at this moment. Here are a list of some...

Veritas skew rabbet block plane

Veritas skew rabbet block plane

07-18-2016 11:09 PM by TheFridge | 6 comments »

I wanted a skew rabbet plane for crossgrain rabbets and cleaning up tenon cheeks. This one fit the bill. It takes a lot of fettling at first but once it’s set it so easy to sharpen and get back to work. I’d definitely recommend it

Perfect for whacking things with sandpaper

Perfect for whacking things with sandpaper

02-09-2010 05:46 PM by Wiley | 6 comments »

I bought this sander several years before I got into woodworking, when I didn’t know better. I finally replaced it yesterday, and can’t even ethically put it on craigslist. Hopefully enough googling will reveal the proper incantation to banish it back to the depths of hell from whence it came. The main problem is that it does not, as sanders generally do, vibrate from side to side. Instead, it vibrates in all dimensions equally. This has three main effects: first, it very quickly ...

GREAT router lift !

GREAT router lift !

11-18-2010 07:29 PM by NBeener | 6 comments »

This really IS a review, so … I’m pointing to it. After spending a fair bit of time, making setup blocks out of UHMW, FOR my Amana glue joint router bit, I can honestly say that I LOVE this lift. The thread pitch and machining make precise dialing in operations—at thousandths of an inch—incredibly easy. Coupled with a height gauge, gauge blocks, or a good rule (I have a Pinnacle 12” that does the job, rather nicely), getting exact bit height is—relat...

Leigh VRS - the VRS24 exactly

Leigh VRS - the VRS24 exactly

09-11-2013 03:53 PM by ken_c | 6 comments »

I purchased the VRS attachment for my Leigh jig a while ago but hadn’t needed to make any dovetails for a while – until now – The vacuum attachment is well worth the $100. I estimate dust collection now at about 98%. I would highly recommend anyone with a Leigh jig pony up the extra cash and get that attachment. Mine is hooked up to a 4” port on the central dust collection but gets reduced to a 2 1/4” hose at the jig. That provides a fairly low air speed for...

Great Quality Razor Blade Scraper

Great Quality Razor Blade Scraper

02-10-2010 09:29 PM by dfdye | 6 comments »

Why the heck am I writing a review of a razor blade scraper? Well, because I have destroyed about a dozen of them in my time and finally found one that has been great to work with. When I finally find a cheap tool that works, I have to share! I got this as an impulse buy for $2.00 while in the check out line at Harbor Freight, and have never looked back. I am sure that everybody on this forum has a million uses for single edged razor blades, and, if you are anything like me, you have tri...

No Slowing Down

No Slowing Down

I researched several skill saws before buying this one. I wanted a saw that was reliable and square…period. This is what I decided on. It has been a good saw. I mostly cut old barn wood for rustic table work. So I don’t know what I’ll be cutting many times, age, condition, dry, wet, etc. I do clean up the nails well and remove first. This Milwauee Saw really does cut all the way through the cut smoothly with no bogging down at all. I use my speed square during most cuts f...

Hands down the best Table Saw DVD out there.

Hands down the best Table Saw DVD out there.

10-24-2008 01:43 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 6 comments »

I reviewed Hendrik’s DVD (Jointer and Planer Secrets) a while ago and was very pleased with it. When Hendrik came out with a new DVD on Table Saws, I was very interested in getting. At first the price of $94.95 CDN, might seem a little high, but what you get makes it worth every penny. I really wish I had this DVD when I bought my first table saw! This is a 5 DVD set and it has almost 10 hours footage. As with his Jointer DVD set, Hendrik always focuses on safe operation of the t...
