Great Product (after you modify them)

Great Product (after you modify them)

11-22-2009 02:01 AM by SteveMI | 3 comments »

I got a used TS couple monts ago that was an upgrade to me. It has the standard 3/4” miter slots in the cast iron table unlike my prior aluminum. So, while browsing the local Woodcraft for feather boards I saw the JessEm and thought to give them a try. Today I had a chance to actually use them and found they are a great product, but are having some manufacturing problems. The key to the design are some rectangle head bolts that slide in slots molded in the plastic feather boards a...

Grizzly G1014Z Modifications

Grizzly G1014Z Modifications

11-22-2009 03:06 AM by khop | 3 comments »

Well, I took the time to modify two things on my new G1014Z sander. First I removed the switch assembly and simply turned it around. I put the switch in front and the wires in back. This makes it much easier to access the switch. Second, I moved the backstop furthur back closer to the disc roller above the platen. You can see where I drilled and tapped for the mounting bolt. I was amazed the mounting bolt was actually a common 5/16 thread. This modification let me pick up another 3” of ...

Veritas DX60 Low Angle Block Plane is Versatile

Veritas DX60 Low Angle Block Plane is Versatile

04-01-2013 05:50 PM by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

When you start looking at a hand plane you can tell pretty quickly if it is well made. This one is. The throat opening adjusts easily, and can close up tightly for fine shavings. The depth adjustment, and angle adjustment is combined into one knob, and is easy to work. Once you dial in your setting there are a pair of set screws that hold the side of the blade in alignment. The blade lock knob is larger diameter than my other planes, which makes it easy to hold the blade steady with mini...

Interesting but very different than the norm...

Rodney Frost put together probably one of the most unusual project books I have ever seen. In it, you will not really find any detailed scale plans, nor projects that one would immediately think of or look to create. The beauty of this book is the openness to creativity and the ideas and techniques that really could do wonders for one’s own hand made toys. The book consists of items that I would consider more modern folk art than real toys. You do explore various cranks and gizmos th...

I read about Clapham’s salad bowl finish for turned bowls and started using it on several projects including my last boxes. It goes on fast and dries quickly, give wood a nice glow, food safe.

Good Nailer so far!  More good things to come!

Good Nailer so far! More good things to come!

11-25-2009 05:49 AM by Tim_456 | 3 comments »

I had a craftsman nailer/stapler combo that did a decent job but would smash the wood sometimes with the square headed 16GA nails. I have some new woodwork that wasn’t going to work well with those nails so I was looking for a new one. I found this one and the “DA” nails (rounded head rather than square head) and it looked like it would do the trick. I picked it up at the local Lowe’s for $189.99. I didn’t do much investigation because all the brands looked t...

The Pocket Hole Drilling Jig Project Book

The Pocket Hole Drilling Jig Project Book

05-29-2012 07:01 PM by Daris | 3 comments »

I don’t believe in reviewing or giving opinions on woodworking books unless you can legitimately say you’ve built at least a couple of items from the book.  I’ve completed the end tables in this book, and currently I’m working on the framed mirror project.  Now that I have presented my only credentials, and gotten that out-of-the-way; I have to say that I really enjoyed this book!  If you’re newer to the Kreg Jig you’ll definitely enjoy it!

Easy mobile base for contractor saws

Easy mobile base for contractor saws

06-25-2009 06:19 PM by skeeter | 3 comments »

I recently purchased these from my local Richmond VA Woodcraft. The owner saw my perplexion as I perused the mobile base section of the store. He asked what I was kind of equipment I was outfitting and then suggested these. I liked the idea of the equipment using its own legs as support when not in transit. I can’t imagine anything worse than a wobbley machine in use(aka my crappy jointer). I found these fairly easy to install. Two of the holes in the leg lined up although I had to enla...

Stumpy Nubs Entertaining Review: Rockler Bench Cookies & Accessories P2

NOTE: This is part TWO of this review. I couldn’t seem to post four videos on one review page. Please see part ONE here before viewing part two. The third video features the sawhorse clip attachments… And finally the finishing cone accessories… Now, in case you didn’t get it from the videos, here’s my written review of the Bench Cookies and Accessories: I love these little hockey pucks, and not just because they have the word “cookie” ...
