Right off the bat, i will say these aren’t as good as the Pfiel chisels. They are however a very high quality set made in England, and at a very reasonable price. I got this set of 6 tools from lee valley a few months ago for about $140. I definitely recommend these tools to any beginning carver, like myself. It came with all 5/16 or 1/4 inch tools, so they aren’t very big chisels. There is a #1, #3, #5, #6, #7 fishtail, #8 and a 60 degree v-tool . Before I bought this set, I ...

leveling casters

leveling casters

01-28-2010 10:34 PM by Jim K | 3 comments »

I’m building a mobile base for my table saw and in places the floor is not level. i found these casters and i thought what a nice idea. The best of both i move my table saw around my small space then just turn those phenolic handles and with a 4 foot level set my table saw anywhere i want to. The kit comes with hardware for 3/4 inch wide sides but I’m using 2×4’s so a trip to the hardware store to get longer bolts was all it needed. The directions were easy. I would rec...

Keeping it clean - aprons in the shop

Keeping it clean - aprons in the shop

07-26-2011 06:05 AM 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. The owner chris was very friendly and took care of me letting me choose my wood.they are a small operation but have high quality wood at good prices. They carry cherry, walnut, maple, poplar,cypress and a lot more. apparently what chriscan not get locally h...

With a little wooing, a true sweetheart #62

With a little wooing, a true sweetheart #62

11-10-2010 12:12 AM by JohnKaye | 3 comments »

I recently urgently needed a plane that would flatten 18” wide maple that tiger, ambrosia, spalting, some other undefined figure. My Stanley No. 7 was on a real tear(out) even with blade sharpening and Lee Valley couldn’t deliver the same day, especially on Sunday. So I went to my local Woodcraft and a No. 7 Lie Nielsen looked good except my discount coupon would not apply. Given I had a fully refundable trial period I opted for the #62. (Yes I read the reviews). In short, the pla...

Elbo articulated hollower

Elbo articulated hollower

07-27-2011 12:46 AM 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...

Great First Bench Stone

Great First Bench Stone

09-01-2013 02:11 AM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

Picture 1: the back of the stone—-after I had used it the mineral oil/swarf turned teh stone darker. The backside (minus the little “stain” on the left”) is what the front of the stone looked like before I used it. Picture 2: the case. Picture 3: the front of the stone after it had been wiped down after the first use was definitely darker than it was before use. Did not expect that. So I bought this (my first oilstone) earlier this week and used it for the f...

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

04-19-2012 07:03 PM 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...
