Rockler 34193 Pizza Blade cutter Kit

Rockler 34193 Pizza Blade cutter Kit

01-20-2013 01:56 PM by John Truffa | 3 comments »

I’m a crafter and have made many pizza cutters using the Rockler Kit. No one comes near it it for durability and craftmanship. I use cocoblo for the handle. To keep the handle from cracking when inserting the threaded insert I put a ferrel on the end (same size as the one that comes with their ice craem scoop). I’ve been looking for a plastic blade cover to no avail! If anyone can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I called Rockler but they couldn’t hel...

Porter Cable Table Saw review

Porter Cable Table Saw review

08-26-2012 04:49 PM by AJswoodshop | 3 comments »

I bought this table saw because my old one was falling apart. My old craftsman table saw I got at a garage sale, for $30.00. It worked for a few months, but then I found out about porter cable. But when I got the porter cable miter saw, ended up getting a porter cable table saw, I paid $300, with tax I paid about $330. The table saw stand is awesome, its very sturdy, and really easy to roll the table saw out of the way. A table saw needs a good fence, and miter gauge. The miter gauge that cam...

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

04-10-2015 10:41 PM by Redoak90 | 3 comments »

I purchased the Gramercy tools sash saw kit a few weeks back. The kit comes with a saw plate with a brass back and 2 pairs of saw nut and bolt in brass. The saw was packaged in an anti-rust paper with bubble wrap. Nothing was damaged when it arrived and it looked flawless. No scratches, dings, or dents present. The saw is 14” long has 13 ppi and a 0.02” saw plate. I bought the kit because the only saw I had was a Veritas dovetail saw and wanted a larger saw to cut larger pie...

3M™ SandBlaster™ Flexible Abrasives

3M™ SandBlaster™ Flexible Abrasives

02-20-2008 10:31 PM by leonmcd | 3 comments »

I just discovered these and used them on my Valentine’s Box 2008 project. Because of the small size of the box and the rounded bottom made by the bowl/tray router bit, I needed something flexible to follow the curves. I also need something that I could agressively work some problem areas left by the router. My regular sandpaper didn’t seem agressive enough and foam backed sanding pads are too stiff on the sanding surface to smoothly follow the tight curves. These pads are mu...

Footprint 247H Block Plane - A review from a beginner's perspective

Footprint 247H Block Plane - A review from a beginner's perspective

08-26-2009 01:57 PM by KellyS | 3 comments »

My opinion and review of a 247H Block Plane from Footprint tools:This is my personal opinion; we all know what opinions are like. If I hurt anyone’s feelings, I apologize. Rockler recently advertised these block planes on sale for $9.99. My wife talked me into buying one. (My first rule, if the wife offers to let me buy a tool, I never turn her down…That’s just bad form!) So I decided to buy it. It’s a very basic, no frills block plane, the mouth is non-adjustable, the blade has to be posi...

Craftsman Universal Jig

Craftsman Universal Jig

08-31-2012 02:23 PM by jmanleisure | 3 comments »

Well I promised I wouldn’t buy something and post a review without using it… so much for that! I’m posting it because I bought it on clearance- 50% off. The cost was just under $16 bucks. So in case anyone wants to pick it up-i figured I’d post my initial impressions and hopefully there are some folks that have used one. I would have liked to have made my own jig, but for the price it was hard to beat. So far my initial impressions- 1. it’s made in Amer...

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

10-17-2010 04:49 AM by Chris | 3 comments »

I purchase the Bowlamp Master Set earlier this year because there was some case work and panel glue-ups I wanted to do during the fall season. While building this Mahogany Bookcase I used them on both the face frame and the shelf edging. I have found them to be of very high quality and workmanship and had only very miner issues with using them. The problems were all on my end and not that of the product itself.

Just burned out my 12 year old green Bosch 5” ROS, and found myself in dire need of another to finish off edging a floor. Head full of “will I buy the cheapest one?/will I buy a decent one?” on the way to the tool shop. Still undecided I had a look at all on display.I explained that I wanted something with a dual personality, something that would breeze through floor edging when required, yet show a bit of restraint for sanding cabinets. Having discounted the Bosch, Makita, ...

A plug cutter set well worth a plug.

A plug cutter set well worth a plug.

03-20-2009 12:53 AM by Emeralds | 3 comments »

I’ve been looking around for good value in plug cutters and as usual decided to start at the bottom of the price ladder and work my way up. It didn’t take much time to realize that there are times when cheap simply won’t “cut” it. (pardon the pun). After three products from as many different vendors all failed to impress, I landed at the MLCS website. I skipped right over their 8 piece plug cutter set as it was very similar to the Rockler product that I had al...
