Better when attached to the shopVac then a 5 gallon bucket

10-31-2013 09:13 PM by Bill1974 | 4 comments »

I have had this not for a few month, and it is much nicer to empty this then the shop vac. I am using a Ridgid 6.5hp shop vac with this. It work well, but not as well as I thought it would. Sealing the air leaks in the container seem to help but there was nothing in the included instruction that said this. I got this in the kit form that came with a could of 5 gallon buckets, a short section of hose to connect it the shopvac (its a really nice quality), and the hardware to attach it to ...

I purchased arbortech’s contour Random orbit sander. I build a lot of maloof style furniture and this little baby is a life and time saver. If you watch the YouTube video made by arbortech. There is no BS. It works as advertised. The rubber head can be replaced if needed (15-20 dollars). It is made well and with a little care will out last me. It uses sticky back paper which you can order from arbortech or do like me buy 5 or 6 inch discs and with a sharp pair of scissors make your...

Great Selection, Great Prices, Fast Turnaround Time

Great Selection, Great Prices, Fast Turnaround Time

I haven’t seen a formal review for these guys on here, so I figured I’d go ahead and document my experience with these guys. I’ve placed 4 orders with them in the past year for a variety of screws, some tabletop fasteners, and most recently some 26” KV-brand heavy-duty drawer slides. Each time I ordered, I received a shipping notice 1-2 business days (or even on the day I ordered), and received my order within 5 business days. Everything was accurately counted, ba...

Measuring non-wood things in the shop.

Measuring non-wood things in the shop.

08-02-2016 04:19 AM by oldnovice | 4 comments »

Many times in the shop you need to measure things that are not wood but is useful for your other tools. The Craftsman Digital Clamp-On Ammeter is a reasonably priced meter that measures both AC and DC current up to 400 Amps. I used it to measure some DC currents in the 80 Amp range and none of the typical DVM, or the three I have, or the old RCA analog meter have a range above 10 Amps. Other features of this Craftsman Digital Clamp-On Ammeter is auto-ranging AC/DC voltages temperature both...

new hotness vs old busted BACKGROUNDI was a Dewalt guy for years, and have had an old nicad drill and driver for the last 10 years or so that have served me well, but after my old drill got dropped on the concrete floor and cracked, I decided to treat myself to a brushless setup. I had been wanting to go brushless for awhile and this was the excuse I needed. I pretty much settled on the Milwaukee line due to a variety of factors, including the availability of the 18/12v combo charging ...

Good Resource for Country Furniture Building

Good Resource for Country Furniture Building

(The projects in this book are from the workshops of David T. Smith and the book is written by Nick Engler and Mary Jane Favorite.) This second of the set of books provided by Fox Chapel Publishing is quite interesting. Not only do you get 50 plans but also a little history on American country furniture, as well as tips regarding wood, hardware and finishing techniques. I really enjoyed reading the information provided about the wood selection and design elements that are used to c...

The Real Thing At Last.

The Real Thing At Last.

04-17-2013 02:30 AM by mcase | 4 comments »

I have experimented with a fair number of sharpening methods. I bought a Tormek years ago so the primary bevel was never an issue. The goal was producing a razor sharp secondary bevel quickly and easily. I had given natural stones a whirl, buying two Pro Edge brands stones – a Hard White Arkansas and a fine Hard Black Arkansas. Neither stone cut worth a Damn – period. So, I pretty much gave up on naturals and invested in Japanese waterstones and have a respectable set of g...

Mechanical Drafting Pencil: 2.0 mm

Mechanical Drafting Pencil: 2.0 mm

12-14-2014 10:47 PM by TravisH | 4 comments »

I have mainly used whatever pencils left over from the kid’s school supplies but have wanted to try out a mechanical drafting pencil (2.0 mm) but most I have come across were sort of costly and/or also needed to be shipped. I came across this pencil while doing my normal sweep at the store. It was under 5 bucks so put it cheaper than anything else I have come across. I liked the fact it was hexagonal to avoid rolling off the work bench as the clip will be removed (as I find them a...

So I snuck one of the pair out of the Christmas pile and installed it my bench yesterday.There’s been a blind hole just in front of my vice for years, where there used to be one of those zinc bench stops that you screw up and down..it broke, did some filling and just left a 3/4 hole for regular dogs.This required me to put a dowel in the bottom of the hole to shorten the depth for the new springy guy.Install done, works great, cheap and once again I have a dedicated dog to match the on...
