Another Oldie ... Technical Info on Mitres

Another Oldie ... Technical Info on Mitres

01-19-2012 12:54 PM by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

This review is from the January 2012 issue of our LJ eMag. Toolemera.com is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)The Art of Mitering “The Art of Mitering” is written by Owen Maginnis in 1892. I think the introduction by Gary Robers says it all: ”While major texts on architecture, carpentry, joinery and cabinet-making had offered some instructions to the artisan in laying out and forming of the mitre joint, none had offered an explanatio...

Sandboss

Sandboss

12-11-2012 03:05 AM by Steve | 1 comment »

I have been looking for a long time to find a quality built pneumatic sanding drum, and my wife beat me to it. She found this one at Lee Valley Tools, and gave it to me for an early Christmas gift. I purchased half a dozen used wine barrels this Summer and it is the perfect tool for sanding the curved surfaces of the staves. I use my 6”x108” belt sander for doing the edges.

What a great idea

What a great idea

04-02-2014 09:46 PM by Andrew | 1 comment »

http://www.fullpro.com/products-purchase.php The idea behind these safety glasses is simple. Normal glasses, when worn with earmuffs, get uncomfortable (to me anyway). The earmuffs tend to pinch the “arms” of the glasses against the sides of your head. Also, they affect hearing protection, breaking the seal the earmuffs have around your ears. These glasses have straps instead of rigid “arms”. The straps attach to the outside of your earmuffs via adhesive Hook ...

"Cooler" Hearing Protection

"Cooler" Hearing Protection

07-01-2009 12:20 AM by handi | 1 comment »

I love my Worktunes earmuffs, and use them with my iPhone in the shop to listen to my music and podcasts. But this time of year, they get mighty warm! So when I saw that AO Safety had come out with earplugs that could be used with my MP3, I had to try them out. As expected, these are much cooler to wear in the heat than the big earmuffs, but they are not an exact replacement. The Blockades are rated at 24 Db instead of the 29Db that the Worktunes are rated. 5Db may not seem like much, but ...

Harbor Freight Dial Indicator with flex mount

Harbor Freight Dial Indicator with flex mount

04-13-2013 08:28 PM by dschlic1 | 1 comment »

I purchased this dial indicator to align my table saw. I choose this unit because, rather then getting a magnetic base, this unit uses a vise grip type pliers and a flexible shaft. The flexible shaft consists of a series of tubes and round rings. Inside the tubes and rings is a steel cable. On one end of the shaft is a mounting clamp for the dial indicator, and also a screw adjustment to adjust the over all length of the shaft.On the other end is a boss that screws into the vise grip pliers a...

magic molder is great

magic molder is great

now, i’m by no means am I a professional but the results on this thing i think is exceptional. very little sanding if any at all , quick and easy plugs changes, and the ease of use on the table makes it a winner. first off i only have a portable table saw but i tell ya brothers the saw never bogged down at all when i was feeding mahogany,oak or walnut through as i was making some profiles—just pure experimentation by the way. the plugs are not cheap but they work very well̵...

Well i was back at Menards the other day, I should get a PT job there seams I am always there. Anyways i bought the Wen rotary tool the other day actually 2 of them and then went bact to get one more, and I picked up this flex shaft accessory 19.99, 36” three ball bearing. Shaft is nice and flexible to get into tight spots. The posted pictures are from Milescraft I will post some from my shop. Keyless tool change is a real plus. Very compact and fits the hand well. If you need a flex sh...

Aftermarket Fein blades

Aftermarket Fein blades

01-02-2011 10:39 AM by gko | 1 comment »

Imperial Blades I’ve had my Fein Multimaster for about two years now and it has been the tool that gets occasional use but was invaluable when it was either the only way to do something or made it so much easier to do a cut. BUT the blades were so expensive and didn’t seem to last as long as they cost. So looking for a cheaper alternative to the blades I did a little surfing and found Imperial Blades which have just been picked up by Woodcraft. They weren’t at the loca...

Oneway Talon Chuck

Oneway Talon Chuck

11-10-2013 09:37 PM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

I bought a used Jet 1236 lathe about a year ago, my first lathe and my first time turning since high school. I watched all the youtube videos I could find and I saw quickly that the way I did it in high school with faceplates is a drag compared to using a scroll chuck, so I saved some money and last month I took the plunge. I chose Oneway over Nova and the others for one simple reason: the shape of the jaws. On the Nova, the quarter round shape didn’t account for different diameter s...

Excellent primer on how to take advantage of your hand planes.

Excellent primer on how to take advantage of your hand planes.

01-20-2008 06:28 PM by ben | 1 comment »

Rather than re-summarize, I will simply agree with the first review about the content and utility, and note that while there’s no earth shattering information, it’s an excellent combination of common sense and history. The video covers plane usage, including the history, the mechanism and the results, as well as discussing plane irons and other details in moderate depth (for example, why some irons have more camber). I have 3 Schwarz videos, and this is probably my favorite. ...
