LOCKJAW 7CCS Self-Adjusting Locking Clamp

LOCKJAW 7CCS Self-Adjusting Locking Clamp

03-05-2011 06:29 PM by Don Johnson | 6 comments »

Whilst viewing LJ’s Project page, some clamps popped up in the advertisement sidebar, so I decided to investigate. The blurb for the set of four clamps read as follows: Offering much more than the traditional variety, this set of four LockJaw self-adjusting locking clamps are perfect for getting the job done. Versatile and easy to use, the clamps are great for any number of jobs, and the patented LockJaw locking mechanism means the jaws open and adjust automatically to any size obje...

Another Great Woodpecker Product

Another Great Woodpecker Product

01-11-2015 01:12 AM by scarpenter002 | 6 comments »

I purchased this set of squares of few months ago, when it was on sale as part of their weekly specials sent to their Eclub members. The set arrives in custom MDF case. I will not be utilizing the case, as I have custom brackets made to hold these. These are made of thick Aluminum, making them sturdy, yet light weight. There are measurements on both the inside and outside of the blade. The inside measurements start at the notch of the square, allowing easy measurement on projects. A c...

Harbor Freight Mobile Base with steel support bars

Harbor Freight Mobile Base with steel support bars

04-18-2015 09:09 PM by PaulHWood | 6 comments »

Thanks to curliejones for the idea and help. substituted 1 1/4 inch 16 gauge tube steel instead of hardwood, approximately a $1 a foot for material. Cut to size, clamped into support and started the holes with a 5/16 bit to mark, then finished drilling with 1/8” starter bit and step bit to 11/32 (bolts are 8mm). All but one lined up perfect, and the last one just took riunning the 5/16 bit throuhg once (likely an interior burr). I painted the steel black to match the mobile base, ...

A Saw For a Lifetime, Even for Proffessionals

A Saw For a Lifetime, Even for Proffessionals

02-09-2016 09:57 PM by Kelly | 6 comments »

For reference, this is my third Bosch saber saw. I bought my first one over twenty years ago. Before it, I bought “high end” B &D’s and others touted as professional quality. They all died within six months of heavy use. In contrast, I sold my first Bosch to my brother seven years after I bought it, when I upgraded [to the first model not requiring a screw driver for blade changes]. My first Bosch was a barrel and was bought by mistake. I had never used one before. A ...

Benjamin Moore Advance

Benjamin Moore Advance

02-10-2014 06:47 AM by woodworkingdrew | 6 comments »

This past weekend, I painted a birch shelving unit with BM Advance paint. This is exceptional paint. First off my experience in my local paint shop was top notch. The employees are extremely knowledgeable, and very quick with mixing the product. I used a small Purdy 4 inch roller on the shelves/sides and a Purdy Nylox brush for the face frame and trim. The paint has excellent coverage and in 2 coats looked superb. It had excellent self leveling properties, and very low odor. Cleaning my rolle...

What to do except buying somewhere else ?

What to do except buying somewhere else ?

11-30-2011 09:43 PM by Johnny Boy | 6 comments »

For the last 4 years I have tried to do business with Busybee Tools. As many of us, I was impressed by the unbeatable price. Unfortunately, every single order I have placed was a nightmare. Defective dust collector, items not as described, items not available, orders not shipped after several months, missing parts. I have never received a full order without having to complain about it.3 days ago, after 29 days, I have received an email to let me know the item I was waiting for (a 38” st...

Duelen Planer Blade Sharpening Jig 12"

Duelen Planer Blade Sharpening Jig 12"

10-06-2014 11:28 PM by PatrickB | 6 comments »

Got this handy little gizmo in the mail the other day and used it right off on my DeWalt 12 1/2” planer blades. I would wait until all six edges need sharpening before sharpening the blades. It’s easier to sharpen 6 edges and keep it even for all the edges. I sharpen 2 edges, remove one blade and flip the other blade and put in the 3rd blade and sharpen as before. Then remove the blade that was flipped and install the first removed blade with one edge needing sharpening still. And...

No more aching thumbs

No more aching thumbs

02-29-2008 07:18 PM by MrWoody | 6 comments »

I received this last Christmas and hadn’t used it.As anyone who has used a scraper over an extended period of time can attest your thumbs become painful.This morning I needed to do a very small bit of scraping but I have a calcium growth that is interfering with the muscle in my thumb making using it for even small things very painful.I opened a drawer and my scraper holder was sitting there and even had a scraper in it ready to go.This thing works. I won’t be doing anymore scrapi...

Great Video Well Worth the Price

Great Video Well Worth the Price

02-17-2013 03:30 PM by PittsburghTim | 6 comments »

I have purchased several woodworking videos in the past and have been generally pleased, but this one was very helpful. I knew a number of the things from reading other sources, but see it first hand takes some of the remaining mystery out of it for me. I like Chris’ sense of humor and value his opinion on tools and such. This video is great for someone who does not have much experience with tuning up a plane an nobody around to teach them. He takes you from the purchase of a used...

Steel City 1.5 HP Model 65200 Dust Collector

Steel City 1.5 HP Model 65200 Dust Collector

04-19-2015 01:10 AM by IHRedRules | 6 comments »

Yes, I do know that Steel City is no more, but I figure, why not review it anyway, as someone may still be interested in purchasing one while they are being clearanced out. To be clear, I just purchased this today, so my experience is very limited with it, so take it for what it’s worth. I was able to purchase it on clearance, so I got what I felt was a good deal. I’m not too worried about product support down the road, as i figure a dust collector is fairly simple and many par...
