Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

07-29-2009 10:51 PM by Mike H | 5 comments »

I got the Kreg Pocket Hole Master system about a year or two ago and have been wanting to add a few more clamps for doing some larger projects under consideration / in the plans. Got a e-mail the other day from woodcraft.com and they had them (Item # 144665) on sale (or Clearance perhaps) for $12.99 each so I ordered (3) of them which just came today. For (3) of them plus shipping cost was $47.96 which I think is a great price as they used to be about $25 per + s/h I believe some of ...

Great Arts and Craft furniture resource

Great Arts and Craft furniture resource

01-03-2010 04:15 PM by Tim Dahn | 5 comments »

I received this book as a Christmas gift and after a few looks through I can recommend this. I has a good bit of info regarding arts & craft furniture including drawings with dimensions on several pieces. Overall, a good read. If you are not familiar with the Grove Park Inn it is an incredible Arts and Craft style resort located in Asheville NC, full of A&C furniture and opened for business in 1913. If you want to check out the Inn’s website or have some extra coin for a $...

Swedish Sloyd Knife

Swedish Sloyd Knife

02-29-2012 12:49 AM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

Just a few weeks back I received this little treat I picked up for myself from the Lee Valley Tools website, a Swedish Sloyd Knife! This retails for $15.50 and I was plesantly surprised that for a cheaper costing carver knife that this is a very handy shop knife to have around. I would have preferred wood to the hard plastic handle (AHHH Its 16 bucks..lol)...but it fits nicely to the contours of the hand, has a sharp blade, and cuts nice for a Sunday afternoon of whittling…...(See...

Great Value

Great Value

10-14-2011 03:30 AM by DylanC | 5 comments »

I picked up this digital caliper for around $30 at a local Rockler. So far I couldn’t be happier. I compared it to a $100+ Mitutoyo at work and they were within a half a thousandth at full scale (5-6 inches). It also has a larger battery, so I’m hoping that it will last longer than the smaller watch battery types. Whats in the box: 6” digital caliper, case, 2 batteries (one installed, one spare). http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=24524

Cheap Second Stage Separator

Cheap Second Stage Separator

06-10-2013 01:33 PM by Kahr | 5 comments »

I am starting in woodworking and wanted a second stage filter to hopefully extend the life of my Dust Collector. I did a lot of internet research and found this unit. The Fulton 4” Dust Separator Kit sells for around $20. I was able to install it on a 30GAL plastic drum with a locking lid in about 20 minutes. The unit does the job! I dumped the dust from my collectors bag and sucked it back up and very little finding its way back to the collector. In the drum you can see the cyclone ...

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

02-19-2015 09:54 PM by steve421 | 5 comments »

I am writing my review in order to help people with their decision on a purchase of this unit. Before I begin I had some reservations about this and was unsure about making this investment, Even though it is an economical unit, 350 to 400 bucks is a lot to throw away on a piece of garbage that doesn;t work correctly Anyways I am more than pleased with this purchase. I never give 5 stars because when we write these posts we have no way of determining on how long something will last. I may writ...

StrongHold Clamps

StrongHold Clamps

08-03-2009 02:23 AM by dustbunny | 5 comments »

I accidentally posted this review under the blog section, and thought I better correct it. I was looking for a clamp that could hold a glue up of two 45 deg strips of wood to make a block. Basically two triangles glued together to make a square. All the woodworking site searches produced nothing. Then I came across these clamps on a welding website. http://www.stronghandtools.com/products/pdt_img/pgv_pic.html I ordered three of them from my local welding supply store to see how t...

Great Stile and Rail Set  - Made in USA

Great Stile and Rail Set - Made in USA

01-01-2014 11:38 PM by mcase | 5 comments »

I recently went through a real nightmare with Freud’s new stile and rail cutters. Since I stupidly trusted Freud I did not use the set until I needed it for an order for cabinets. Unfortunately It was too late to return their junk so I had to eat the cost of their useless product. I replaced their garbage with a set of American-Made cutters from Eagle America. What a world of difference! – Smooth cutting and perfectly mating. It feels good buying American products and h...

New drum sander

New drum sander

04-07-2015 04:27 PM by Ladislav | 5 comments »

Hi everyone!! I finaly got bigger drum sander :))!! I used to had 16-32 performax but without sand smart, and it was ok but only after I removed the trip braker and bypass it. But still it was quite a work to get a full kitchen ( doors) thru it . And also annoying to have to do two passes on wider doors and not being able to keep sander set perfect to the table , but on the end it had to be lil higher wich meant i basicaly run everything twice , run once flip and in again . I was looking at 2...

All-in-one cleaning kit makes it simple.

All-in-one cleaning kit makes it simple.

06-13-2008 12:21 AM by Iffy | 5 comments »

This kit is really convenient. Sure you could gather all the pieces separately, but it’s nice to have them all together. The basin for the saw blades is really nice. You don’t have to worry about finding a shallow cookie sheet that might be used for food (and potentially getting someone mad at you). Just mix one part of the cleaner to 3 parts water and let your blade or router bit soak. After five minutes or so, use the included brush to scrub off the pitch and resin. Voila! Clean...
