Luthier's chisels

Luthier's chisels

08-23-2010 08:58 PM by Chinitorama | 3 comments »

Up for review here is a 3 mm chisel from Luthiers Mercantile (lmii.com). These chisels are priced at less than many other premium chisels I’ve seen and are available in seven metric sizes. The one I purchased is one of the smallest widths offered. Made in Germany, this tool is intended for paring use only and has a handle made of tintul wood which looks a lot like Brazilian rosewood. The handle is well finished with a beefy brass ferule and is very comfortable in the palm of my ha...

A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

12-15-2013 03:18 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

The HF 3/4” Pipe Clamp with Base fixture is probably the only of my many HF acquisitions that has never given me a problem. After discovering the inadequacies of F-style clamps in the greater than 12” range (too much flex), I took the road traveled by many a woodworker before me and began looking to pipe clamps. I began pricing out Jorgensen Pony pipe clamp fixtures and found them to be a bit more expensive than I had anticipated, so I took a chance and bought 1 fixture from HF ...

Good turning jacket

Good turning jacket

12-30-2012 09:00 PM by Kreegan | 3 comments »

After the first time I turned green wood, I decided that I needed some kind of turner’s smock or coat. So I looked around at the available options, and didn’t really like what was out there. Everything was either too pricey or looked like it didn’t provide the kind of coverage I wanted. On a turner’s forum somewhere, I read that some people recommended chef’s jackets or welding coats. I looked at chef’s coats and didn’t find any with the kind of neck ...

Quick and Easy Shelf Pin Jig

Quick and Easy Shelf Pin Jig

01-22-2009 07:28 AM by mart | 3 comments »

I ordered Rockler’s Jig It shelf pin drilling jig when I got an order for 26 feet of built in bookcases. I had never had to run this many holes (2652) before and had always used a piece of pegboard and a small vertical drill jig in the past. The Rockler jig is a clear plastic plate with a metal square tubing guide bar that registers the jig either against the inside of a cabinet or on the edge of an board for the side of a yet to be assembled cabinet. There are two rows of holes and ...

First Look at Micro Jig's "ZeroPlay" miter bar.

First Look at Micro Jig's "ZeroPlay" miter bar.

07-21-2009 12:42 AM by handi | 3 comments »

Not quite available in stores yet, I got the chance to test and review Micro Jig’s “ZeroPlay” miter bars. They are really two pieces with opposing wedges molded in that spread them to fit the miter slot. Set screws lock the bars once adjusted. They are molded of glass filled nylon, which makes them durable as well as slick enough to slide well. The bars are short at 9 1/2”, but because they make full contact with the slot along their entire length, they are surp...

A great clamp for the price

A great clamp for the price

05-19-2011 06:26 PM by Chuck | 3 comments »

I purchased a set of these bar clamps several years ago. They were inexpensive and have worked very well. I was first introduced to them when taking a class at the CT Valley School of Woodworking. They were all still functional in the school, and I’m sure they get plenty of abuse in the school. They currently list for approximately $25/each for a 48” clamp and offer them in many lengths. The bar clamps are made from extruded aluminum, are reasonably light and give a good am...

Leatherman Skeletool CX Multitool, It's what Batman would carry.

Leatherman Skeletool CX Multitool, It's what Batman would carry.

07-21-2009 06:00 AM by EricWrights | 3 comments »

I already have a multi-tool (Swiss Army Champion Plus), it’s a great tool to be sure, but for me out of the 30 tools in it I only ever use the small blade and once in a blue moon the scissors. It’s a “little of everything” tool but not particularly strong in any one of the particular tools. The allure of the Skeletool for me was:The simplicity, but being strong in what it gives you:1. On the CX model, the 154CM combo plain/serrated blade is beefy enough to do a job ...

Powertec BD6900

Powertec BD6900

07-17-2012 07:41 PM by Tennessee | 3 comments »

For decades, literally, I have used a Toolkraft 6X48 sander with a slightly undersized motor. I believe I took it in on trade for some refinishing work back in the late 70’s. But the bronze bushings were finally wearing, it wouldn’t track right anymore, and the motor was pretty shot, so I started looking. Settled on a Powertec from Southerntool after the HF unit on sale for $199 was out of stock USA. Southerntool is an Amazon associate dealer. Paid $268 including shipping.Sol...
