Great Small In-Your-Hand Plane

Great Small In-Your-Hand Plane

2244 days ago by RickH | 3 comments »

Owned this Veritas Apron plane for several weeks now, and like the other Veritas planes I have I found it to be extremely well made and a joy to use. This is one of the smallest I have in their line up, with only a 1 1/4” wide low angle, bevel up blade iron. It has a 5-1/2” x 1-3/4” ductile cast iron body for durability, and their great combination blade depth and blade angle adjuster. It is very comfortable to hold in your hand, and cuts very nicely. Ready to go rig...

Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

Fast, simple, adjustable shelving for the shop

1642 days ago by Daniel Dugan | 3 comments »

I was considering building/installing 2×4 sandwiched in 1×4 shelving for wood storage (featured in FWW #181) when I encountered this system on Lee Valley website. Time is precious to me and I would rather build furniture than wood racks, so I decided I would give this a try. I ordered the 4’ standards, fast mount brackets and the connectors as well as 10” and 14” shelf brackets. I installed three eight foot sections tonight in about an hour. The fast mount brack...

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

994 days ago by Raymond | 3 comments »

My last find from my recient trip to Harbor Freight was this Air Sander with Jacobs chuck. 18000 RPM 4 CFM @ 90 PSI. come with 3 backing plates 3” 4” and 5.5” and a 3/8 jacobs chuck. Tons of power, it was missing one of the wrenchs but Harbor Freight customer service sent one right out. One reviewer on HF’s site commented that the sholder on the nut that holds the backing plate and sand paper on is very shallow I have to agree and infact turned a new one on my metal la...

The New Turning Wood with Richard Raffan (2008)

The New Turning Wood with Richard Raffan (2008)

551 days ago by Kreegan | 3 comments »

I just recently purchased a lathe and have been looking at videos and tutorials online about turning. I went to the library closest my office to see if they had any good turning books and found a DVD instead. The DVD is put out by Taunton for Fine Woodwoorking and is called “The New Turning Wood with Richard Raffan.” http://www.amazon.com/New-Turning-Wood-Richard-Raffan/dp/1561589578/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1350571992&sr=1-1&keywords=turning+wood T...

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

418 days ago by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is the file holder from Veritas for card scrapers. Works great for putting a new edge on card scrapers after the burr is worn out. Takes only a couple of seconds to file the edge and get it ready to burnish or you can leave it as is after filing for heavy (as heavy as you can get with a card scraper anyway) material removal. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a good jig for their card scrapers.

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

51 days ago by Lsmart | 3 comments »

I bought this kits a few months ago and didn’t get time to make the body until recently. As usual with Veritas products I found the packaging to be minimal, which I like. All the parts felt well made right away and the blade was already very flat and sharp, a few minutes on the worksharp brought it up to a nice mirror finish. The instructions are detailed and clear and have a good tool and materials list at the beginning as well as warning you when any operation is crucial to be p...

Temporary attachment

Temporary attachment

1126 days ago by Paul | 3 comments »

I think they are much better than the usual doubble stick tapes such as carpet tape that I’ve been using for years. These tabs come in a variety of sizes and are intended for use as refills for many clips, hangers, etc used for wall hanging.When you use them wood to wood, wood to metal, etc just leave the tab exposed and when comes time to remove them pull the tab to release the adhesive, no sticky residue to clean up, no damaged wood surface, no struggles, no hassle. They are ...

Well, even though I‘ve had a Wixey Protractor( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/549 ) that is dead on 100% accurate, measured against all my engineering squares and then some, At only $15 on sale, I could not resist picking one of these up.Why you might ask. Well, The Wixey even though is accurate; it has two main shortcomings. One, it is impossible to lock it in place. Second, it does not have the hold function, which should have been incorporated since it will not lock tight.On the other hand...

Artistic pen blanks

Artistic pen blanks

1528 days ago by Sawdust2 | 3 comments »

Friday I had the opportunity to visit the shop of Constant Laubscher who runs a niche business of creating custom pen blanks. www.lazerlinez.com Constant showed me the process from root ball to finished product. He had one huge root burl that had to have been 4 foot in diameter. After the burl is cut to rough size (1×1 x 6-8) he dries it (them) in a large cabinet about 2×8 x 8. Then they get stabilized in a pressure pot you won’t believe. I could be wrong but I believe that...
