Updated ClearVue Mini CV06 with cone is much improved

11-21-2014 02:56 PM by Bill1974 | 5 comments »

I saw that ClearVue has updated their Mini CV06 shop vacuum separator. I called them up and asked if it would be possible to update my previous generation CV06 and they said it was possible. They sent me the parts (lower cone, a couple of gaskets and hardware) for $40 + $10 for shipping. Money well spent in the long run. The update really improves the separation to the point with almost nothing gets into the shop vac. I took apart the CV06 off the old shop vac housing that I had at...

Nice Intro to Arts & Crafts Furniture Making

Nice Intro to Arts & Crafts Furniture Making

11-11-2012 03:22 AM by 47phord | 5 comments »

My wife and I both love Arts and Crafts furniture and as we get the funds to replace our old, kid-destroyed furniture we have pretty much decided that this is the style we want go with. So, I bought this DVD (actually a DVD-ROM for your computer) to get started. The whole thing is in PDF format and when you first open it on your computer you are greeted with an interactive menu organized by room; living room, dining room, bedroom along with other links to finishing, joinery (7 different art...

Dust Deputy

Dust Deputy

11-13-2009 08:32 PM by Jim | 5 comments »

Multiple reviews already of the $99 Dust Deputy system sold by Oneida – thought I’d throw my two cents in on the $59 version that is just the cyclone sold separately. For the cost of a $5 painter’s bucket from Lowe’s and the time it takes to make a plywood lid, you have the same result as buying the complete kit with arguably a better lid/long term durability. I routed a groove in the plywood as someone else had suggested and put a layer of weather stripping in the...

Low Cost Edge Banding that Works

Low Cost Edge Banding that Works

06-30-2010 04:38 AM by jayman7 | 5 comments »

First, let me say that I have never applied an iron-on edge banding before. This was for making a series of drawer fronts using red oak plywood. I’ve done solid wood edges in the past, but not using a pre-glued veneer. I initially wanted to try the edge banding available at the typical woodworking stores, but it worked out to be about $0.66 / linear foot. I saw the Band-It edge banding at the big box stores for only $0.26 / linear foot so I had to give it a try. I applied it with...

Workshop Essentials 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Mega-Bundle

07-02-2010 05:09 PM by TheDane | 5 comments »

I have seen a number of Steve Maskery’s videos online here on LumberJocks and on YouTube. I liked what I saw in the clips he has posted, so I decided to order some of his DVD’s. I bought the “Workshop Essentials 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Mega-Bundle” (49.99 GBP), and am really pleased with my purchase. The 5 DVD set contains hours of material covering a wide range of jigs and fixtures for table saws, track saws, routers, and band saws. I have already built one jig (fine...

Highest quality pizza cutter I've ever seen

Highest quality pizza cutter I've ever seen

08-24-2011 09:02 PM by Eric_S | 5 comments »

I decided to pick one up from Rockler after Lew’s great review. These things are no joke, a little pricey at ~$20 though. I’ve owned many pizza cutters and most are lightweight, blades wobble, or the blades are just crap. Not to mention that the blade is always off center. This one has none of those issues. Its the heaviest pizza cutter and kitchen utensil I own, solid stainless steel I believe. The blade is in the center with thick rubber or plastic washers on both sides ...

The Freud LU87R010 is a 10” 24 tooth thin kerf (TK) ripping blade that features a red “Permashield” coating for reduced friction and corrosion resistance, laser cut anti-vibration/anti-noise expansion slots, flat top ground teeth (FTG) for efficient material removal, and an aggressive 20 degree hook angle for a fast feed rate. The LU87 is the TK counterpart to the LM72R010, and is part of Freud’s “Industrial” series. Rip blades are designed to make fast ...

All the teeth are C-4 micrograin carbide, and the bore diameter will fit 5/8” arbors...

Project EVS Vacuum pump

Project EVS Vacuum pump

11-28-2014 03:04 AM by iminmyshop | 5 comments »

There are many different kinds of vacuum presses. Wading through which you need can be daunting. Buying a vacuum system can also be costly. I went with the EVS Project at http://www.veneersupplies.com/pages/DIY__Vacuum__Press.html. These pumps require putting some parts together and some very simple wiring. I had never done this sort of thing. Iā€™m a woodworker, not an electrician and had no idea what a manifold was. But everything I read about the company from its customers was very po...

Low-priced plunge router for hobby use

Low-priced plunge router for hobby use

11-24-2008 11:40 PM by ferstler | 5 comments »

Some woodworkers would shudder at the thought of using a Black and Decker tool for routing work, but actually their Fire-Storm unit is not half bad. I picked it up for $60 at Lowe’s a while back (list was $100, I think, but it was being discontinued), and have used it for several sign-making jobs and other oddities. The unit is rated for 11,000 to 28,000 spin speeds and has a 12-amp motor that seems powerful enough, and the collet is a 1/2 incher. The on/off switch is also easy to us...
