Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

03-27-2009 04:08 AM by handi | 6 comments »

If you are used to using FastCaps to cover screws on your cabinets, at some point you have needed some in a special color or wood species. Now you can make your own! FastCap is now offering their Custom Color Punch Kit. The kit includes a heavy duty hole punch, double sided tape, and their Flushmount drill bit. Start by applying the tape to the back of the material you want to use as your cap. With a firm grip on the punch, you can make as many caps as needed, punching through the veneer. ...

Easy sharpening

Easy sharpening

07-24-2013 07:51 PM by Iggles88 | 6 comments »

When I first got this sharpener about two years ago I did not like it too much, I didn’t know too much about sharpening and wasn’t getting the results I thought I would, I did some research and understood better what needed to be done to get a sharp edge, I only used the sandpaper that was included in the worksharp which is Norton sandpaper, I was pretty happy about that. They sell a honing kit that includes a 3600 and 6000 grit that I considered buying but since it came with the ...

Not my faves.

Not my faves.

A few months ago I posted a review of some Kimberly-Clark Nitrile Gloves that I really liked. In the responses, several folks discussed their love of Harbor Freight nitrile gloves. I hardly ever go there, but today I needed to drop by and so I picked up some of these 5 mil gloves (they offer 3, 5, 7, and 9). I didn’t want them to be thin like the ones at the drug store (3) or as thick as some others I’d picked up (7), so I thought I would try the 5 mil model. In doing some pai...

Plastic Super Dust deputy

Plastic Super Dust deputy

01-31-2014 01:14 AM by Alan72 | 6 comments »

I replaced my rockler dust seperator with the Super Dust Deputy. I just finished setting it up to what I think is the most efficent way. I had it for over a month and I couldn’t figure away to set it up, I ended up seperating the Dust collector motor and hanging it from the wall over the 6” dust port of the SDD. I ordered a 5” hose from Penn State cut it in half ran one from the SDD to my main PVC ducting and the other to the dust collector. I’m using a HF dust collec...

General Finishes Gel Stain, a good deal

General Finishes Gel Stain, a good deal

10-24-2010 12:33 AM by Andrew | 6 comments »

I bought some of this because I am refinishing a dresser ( saddly store bought). The dresser has been replaced by one I built. While it sat in my garage, it was noticed by a friend that wanted to relocate it to their home, but they wanted to have it refinished. So I sanded and sanded, then I dyed the unknown Malaysian wood to find out some sections did not take any dye at all, if I hadn’t sanded it myself, I would have thought there was excess glue in those places. So I put on a coa...

It's All In The Details

It's All In The Details

his book review is from the September 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Woodcarver's Workbook At first glance I felt that the book had too much information, too much script and no colour photos which left me feeling “ho hum”... BUT on second look I realized that this book is an excellent resource for learning how to see and how to copy what you see when doing a wood carving. As yo...

Prestige plane on a bargain budget....

Prestige plane on a bargain budget....

07-27-2013 11:59 PM by Benvolio | 6 comments »

This range of planes is currently being sold in the UK by Rutlands and Workshop Heaven. It is the understated half brother of the acclaimed Wood River planes sold on the other side of the Atlantic. Made, as I understand it in the same factory, but tweaked to different specifications according to the badge that’s put on it, and the shop that sells it. The heart of this plane is the pre-tensioned steel body. A happy evolution of the old cast iron plane bodies of yore, the steel one ...

I must brag on Rikon and their customer service.My lathe variable speed indicator stopped working. 1st Rikon sent me a new cable and that worked for a couple days and stopped working again.Rikon sent me a new mother board and switch assembly pronto; which I promptly crossed wires and fried. I contacted Rikon told them what I did and asked how much for a new one. Rod Burrow from Rikon whom I’ve been working with sent me another new one and no cost with an invite to call before I install....

Truly a masterpiece of a hand plane

Truly a masterpiece of a hand plane

07-14-2011 05:37 AM by jayman7 | 6 comments »

As you probably expect, I’m going to echo everyone else’s comments on this plane. I have to admit this is my first Veritas hand plane. Like most of you, I was hesitant to pay the hefty price tag but I finally bought it after oogling it for the past several years. During that time, I tuned up my fair share of two jack planes, two smoothers, and two block planes from ebay. They were a pain in the butt to tune up but I learned the inner workings of how a hand plane performs. Mos...
