Small Cheap Chinese Laser

Small Cheap Chinese Laser

05-20-2016 08:21 PM by RootandBranch | 9 comments »

Gave this 4 stars since it’s almost exactly what I expected going in. Cheap, small scale and does a decent job so far for what it is. Playing with a laser. What could possibly go wrong? This gizmo is a mini 500mW engraver. Blue and purple beam, proprietary drag and drop software, 2 axis movement with a burn area of about one and a half inches square. It’s small but scaling up in laser capability increases the cost by a bunch. When you get up to Death Star wattage; well then, you ...

Etekcity 3 Pack Wireless Controlled Outlet socket with remote

Etekcity 3 Pack Wireless Controlled Outlet socket with remote

02-17-2013 10:59 PM by MT_Stringer | 33 comments »

I bought these in Jan 2013 and so far everything has worked better than I anticipated. Originally, I bought a single unit but it worked so well that I ordered the three pack. The first one is hooked up to the shop vac/Dust Deputy.The second one is connected to a box fan/filter combo.The third one is connected to my 2hp Harbor Freight Dust collector! :-) I have started/stopped the DC at least 20 times so far. I have had no issues with the remote starting or stopping any of the three mac...

Finally can breathe safely!

Finally can breathe safely!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000Z53WKU/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i02 After trying a few masks, this one is definitely the best so far. I rarely give 5 stars, and in fact this is my first 5 star item that I have used. Its comfortable, inexpensive, and has a down firing exhaust that prevents any condensation on safety glasses. The adjustments for the straps are easy and it has the best detachment mechanism so you aren’t wearing out the adjustments. Cost: ~$20 I am using the ...

Great value in a contractor saw

Great value in a contractor saw

11-02-2009 04:11 AM by Glenn | 43 comments »

I’ve been using an early 1980s-era Craftsman 9-inch portable table saw with a steel table and stamped steel extension wings. After deciding that I needed something a little more precise than this older saw, I was looking to upgrade and was attracted to the Bosch 4100-09 partly because of the reviews, but mostly because of the blade guard/riving knife it features. I wasn’t really wanting another portable saw, however, and was looking for something beefier instead. I discovered this...

Hammerite Rust Remover Gel - A Product Review

Hammerite Rust Remover Gel - A Product Review

03-24-2011 08:46 PM by Brit | 18 comments »

Recently I posted a restoration story of an old Skinner 6” sweep brace (you can read it here if you missed it) where I used Hammerite Rust Remover Gel. Since people showed a lot of interest in this product, I thought I would do a proper review as I use it to clean the saw plate on a wonderful vintage Spear & Jackson hand saw. You can read all about this gorgeous piece of English heritage here. The gel is available in three sizes: 75ml, 100ml, 225ml and 750ml. I bought the largest size ...

Great Cutting Board Finish!

Great Cutting Board Finish!

03-25-2011 03:01 PM by zindel | 30 comments »

Last summer I was working on a cutting board my girlfriend and looked deeply into what i could use to finish it. I considered the normal oil and wax, however that needs to be reapplied after some time of use. I then stumbled upon this salad bowl finish by General Finishes and all i can say is WOW! The cutting board i made for her last summer still looks great and fully water proof. You can take a look for yourself: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/44940 This is after almost daily use for...

Preliminary Review Of The Woodpeckers WDPPACK1 Drill Press Table

Preliminary Review Of The Woodpeckers WDPPACK1 Drill Press Table

09-23-2013 04:29 AM by Brad_Nailor | 25 comments »

I have been debating for a year or so about building/buying a good drill press table for my DP. I have seen a lot of really well done ones on this website, and till a few weeks ago hadn’t really seen anything commercially made that really impressed me. I have worked a couple projects lately that I needed the DP for and just a piece of melamine poorly clamped to the metal table wasn’t cutting it.I went online for design inspiration and was looking for ideas on LJ and at commerciall...

The Wood Whisperer Split Roubo Guild Build

The Wood Whisperer Split Roubo Guild Build

03-13-2013 03:29 AM by lysdexic | 18 comments »

I am surprised that there has not been a review of TWW guild posted before. I am a novice wood worker and last spring I decided it was time to build my first workbench. I dont plan on building more than one of these, so I decided to build the best one that I could. After doing all the obligatory research by reading Schwarz’s book, Landis’ book and reading all I could here on LJ’s, I still didn’t feel I had the skills to pull this off. So, I joined the TWW guild spec...
