A "cliff's notes" for hand and power tool maintenance

A "cliff's notes" for hand and power tool maintenance

07-31-2011 05:08 PM by Tedstor | 5 comments »

Out of impulse, I bought this FWW magazine. Its not actually one of their usually monthly editions, but an extra volume which gives a nice overview on maintaining and improving all sorts of hand and power tools. A few examples from the table of contents include (very non-exhaustive): - Tool Kit for Tune-Ups Explaining the tools needed for measuring table saw run-out, jointer blade height, etc. And explains how to use them effectively. Anyone that doesn’t know how to do this should ru...

Bernard E Jones the complete woodworker

Bernard E Jones the complete woodworker

If Nick Englers recently reviewed book is the go to book for modern woodworking, then The complete woodworker is the turn of the century equivalent. Although out of print it,s still available through Amazon which has 21 copies for $4.17 US and if you are curious how your great Grandfathers made furniture then it,s absolutly worth the price of admission. The Four volume Practical woodworking set on the right is the original fully unabridged version which I was lucky to find in a second hand bo...

Good qaulity cutter

Good qaulity cutter

06-08-2010 02:27 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 5 comments »

I purchased this bit to speed up and simplify my box making. To install the lid and base it calls for a 1/4 inch groove around the top and bottom of all sides. Instead of fiddling with the table saw and instead of taking the time to install a dado head I figured it seemed reasonable to have a router with this bit dedicated.This is my first experience with Eagle America and it wont be my last. The shipping was incredible. I only got the standard shipping and I ordered it on Wednesday of last w...

Not perfect, but FAR better than the 3M rubber block!

Not perfect, but FAR better than the 3M rubber block!

04-20-2012 02:12 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

A little disclaimer here. I hate sanding, anything that slows the process down, or fails in the process that I do not want to be doing in the first place earns instant hatred from me, which was what got me looking for a new sanding block in the first place. I started out with a 3M rubber sanding block which is basically the same design as this Norton, just different materials. And it’s the choice in materials that makes all the difference in the world. Simply put, the Norton is a nic...

Initial review of 14bx 220

Initial review of 14bx 220

i purchases the 14 box along with the articulating 220v halogen lamp, mobility kit and 3/4 resaw king blade. When delivered it was well packages. Probably the best I have eve seen. It was packed tightly inside a box in molded styrofoam. The box was in perfect shape and I had now double that it had travelled safely to my home. Initially the machine looked great. I have had the machine now for several weeks and have yet to use it. There have been many issues with setup mainly due to la...

Lie-Nielsen no 2

After watching this video https://youtu.be/56DpxEOpxz0 I decided to get a no2 to use as a block plane to help control tearout issues I was having my block and to use on smaller pieces. Haven’t had it long but it’s everything I wanted.

Cutting Mat

Cutting Mat

10-17-2009 10:14 PM by dustyal | 5 comments »

I originally bought this mat for my mother-in-law who used it for her sewing. My wife also used one for her picture mat cutting. They work well with the rotary cutters and mat cutter. I find it extremely useful for woodworking when laying out projects, doing dry fits and glue ups, etc. I would think it might come in handy for veneer work and other projects where you might want a larger protected surface that won’t mar the finished product. It is hard enough to stay flat and smoot...

Saved me a lot of time and money

Saved me a lot of time and money

09-08-2013 06:47 PM by bluejazz | 5 comments »

Despite years of trying, we never really broke our cat of racing up the stairs and then launching herself at the door jamb, semi-firmly grasping the molding with her claws and sliding down. The results were predictable. Selling the house provided an unwanted opportunity to test this product. There are two photos of the molding here, one before using Howard’s Restor-A-Finish (Golden Oak) and one after. I hope they do the improvement justice. If it turns out the photos don’t ...

High-tech and versatile skew block plane

High-tech and versatile skew block plane

06-12-2010 09:51 AM by live4ever | 5 comments »

I’ve never been able to restore a cheap or older block plane to complete satisfaction. Not knowing whether it was me or whether I was working with inferior quality, I became frustrated and resigned myself to never experiencing the titillating joy of transparent shavings and effortless planing. I began considering simply purchasing a high-quality block plane, either a Lie-Nielsen or Veritas, because I had wasted enough time trying to restore junk and a properly tuned block plane is t...

Shop Fox w1820

Shop Fox w1820

I have had my new Shop Fox for about 2 weeks now and I’d like to think that I have put it through the paces by now. The saw is 230v and 3hp, comes with dado insert, push stick, blade, wrenchs, etc. It took roughly 2 hours or so to get this thing put together and ready to go. I looked at the Grizzly g0691, but didn’t like that I could be denied the liftgate by the trucker, I live at the end of a cul-de-sac, so I went with the Shop Fox, there is a dealer 30 miles from me. Movi...
