Keeping it clean - aprons in the shop

Keeping it clean - aprons in the shop

1094 days ago by coloradoclimber | 3 comments »

Like most of you guys and gals, when I get a chance to run out into the shop off I skedaddle. If I do think ahead I change into my grubby jeans and tee shirt, if I don’t think ahead I start working in whatever good clothes I’m wearing. And probably like most of you when my hands get dirty, or if I get glue on my fingers, or finish, or whatever, I just wipe them on my jeans, or shirt tail, whatever piece of cloth that is handy. Not Anymore !!! No more tracking glue and shavin...

Last weekend i found there was a sawmill right in my backyard, literally a few miles away. i went to check it out and somehow returned with over a 100 bf of cherry, poplar and maple. mostly skip planed on one side and one edge jointed.

They carry cherry, walnut, maple, poplar,cypress and a lot more. apparently what chriscan not get locally h...

Elbo articulated hollower

Elbo articulated hollower

1093 days ago by michelletwo | 3 comments »

I just set up this new tool and hollowed this piece of firewood( 8×5w ) to 6 inches. Very easy to use. (I have hollowed by hand, so I do know how) Anyone who has a modest amount of turning experience will find it relatively easy to do. I got this from Packard Woodworks and I believe it is the least expensive on the market at this time. The bad? One of the grub screws was already stripped before I even put it together. One of the long bolts that clamp the holder on the quill, was sh...

Not so Pro

Not so Pro

If your planning on using Rockler’s new “Pro Shelf” template set for professional work don’t even bother to open the box. The set includes registering pins for 5mm and 1/4” pins. However the set does not include the registering pins for the 7/32” holes you need to drill if your using the more professional brass insets and shelf pins. According to the website and the staff with whom I spoke, Rockler does not sell or make the necessary registering pins. Stran...

Craftsman 16 inch Scroll Saw Review

Craftsman 16 inch Scroll Saw Review

826 days ago by Daris | 3 comments »

For my birthday recently my wife purchased me a scroll saw. (That’s right fella’s she’s all mine) Having never owned a scroll saw, and quickly realizing that I’m a novice to this tool; I’ll do my best to give an honest review of this tool. But… Before I can start I have to give a little insight to my scroll saw bias’. I’ve been doing the “woodworking thing”, for a few years now and I’ve always thought I had all of the tools that I needed. I also have always had two opinions when it c...

dustcutter II dust collection system paired up with ridgid TS3650

dustcutter II dust collection system paired up with ridgid TS3650

323 days ago by yrob | 3 comments »

I have a small shop and use a Ridgid TS3650 contractor style table saw. Dust collection has always been a problem. I have tried enclosing the saw with hardboard pieces in the past but this makes it impossible to tilt your blade as the motor sticks out. I recentlly bought this product, the Dustcutter II from Woodcraft. It is basically a dust bag shaped like a funnel with a 2 1/4” port at the end. It attaches to the table saw from the inside by velcro. The installation guide say...

warning just got this today, this is a first look review The Woodsmith Store had this General mobile base on sale for $60, the staff also recommended it. It took me about 15-20 mins to put together, all I needed was a couple wrenches. It’s my first mobile base and I can’t believe I lived without one. Much better than dragging around my Delta contractor table saw. I would have preferred one lever to engage the wheels and move it but stepping on 2 each time isn’t too to...

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Up for review is a scaled-down version of the Veritas edge jointing block plane. I recently purchased this miniature as a novelty item but found it to be a very effective tool for small projects. Like the miniature Veritas shoulder plane, this tool is made from investment cast steel. Precisely machined on its sole and integral fence, the plane also features a nicely flattened iron which sharpens easily. On the whole, fit and finish is top notch as it is on all Veritas products. After...

PSI Variable Speed Midi Lathe Conversion Kit

1744 days ago by Chris Wright | 3 comments »

Here at the arts and Crafts Center we’ve been doing a lot of turning classes (mostly pen, but also the occasional bowl or bottle stopper) in conjunction with the Wounded Warrior program at Walter Reed and with the help of the local chapters of the American Association of Woodturners. Through them we’ve been able to have donated or loaned to the shop, lathes, chisels, chucks and other supplies. One of the lathes that was donated to the program was a Fisch Midi Lathe (essentially ...

Tool Shop Nailer/Brad Nailer-Stapler/Pin Nailer Kit

Tool Shop Nailer/Brad Nailer-Stapler/Pin Nailer Kit

823 days ago by 47phord | 3 comments »

I picked this set up from Menards as a birthday present to myself. I had a Harbor Freight brad nailer that was, well, a harbor freight tool; a total piece of stinky-stuff. So, I was in the market for a new one plus I had been dreaming about getting a pin-nailer as well when I saw this kit on sale for $80. I picked it up after checking the return policy (knowing that ‘Tool Shop’ can be on par with ‘Harbor Freight’ in terms of quality) and took it home. First I̵...
