SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers

08-11-2014 08:49 PM by Grumpymike | 13 comments »

SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers DVD (The Basics) Dave Richards, the narrator of this DVD, is an authorized SketchUp trainer and he draws plans for Fine Woodworking Magazine. A very talented man indeed; however, in his vast knowledge and computer skills he has forgotten that a huge percentage of his audience is in the well over 50 category that grew up with slide rules and mechanical adding machines long before the computer age. In Dave’s fast paced narration, he does not annunciate hi...

The best table saw (and shop) accessory I have ever owned

The best table saw (and shop) accessory I have ever owned

02-26-2008 08:45 PM by RickH | 17 comments »

At the first woodworking show I attended years ago I became aware of the Incra table saw fence systems, and bought their first version almost 10 years ago. I upgraded to their LS system (lead-screw) about 4 years ago by purchasing a new postioner w/machined fence, which is even easier to use. What the Incra fence does is allow for precise and repeatable fence alignment on your table saw: > Precision – allows adjustments as fine as .001”, though their standard measuring meth...

Woodworking Business Start Quickly And Operate Sucessfully

Woodworking Business Start Quickly And Operate Sucessfully

10-20-2010 09:10 PM by sawblade1 | 9 comments »

With the series of blogs on LJ’s about wanting to operate a woodworking business I felt obligated to do a review on this book. Last Friday I contacted fellow LJ Billb about his book Woodworking Business Start Quickly and Operate Successfully and he contacted me back and was very helpful about my concern of buying off the internet working to answer any questions about anything I had to throw at him, I received the book Monday and even a veteran woodworker and being in business for two...

SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw (ICS31230: 3 hp, 1 phase, 230 V, 13 A)

06-01-2010 02:46 AM by stevenmadden | 54 comments »

I purchased this table saw in early April 2010 and it arrived in early-mid May 2010. The delay, I found out later, was due to the fact that SawStop was making a transition to the new, upgraded industrial cabinet saw. Anyway, when the saw arrived, I was pleased to find out that SawStop had upgraded me to the new dust collection shroud, blade guard, and lock down throat plate for free. There have been several very detailed reviews of the SawStop Industrial Cabinet Saw here at LumberJocks, ...

Triton Upgrades Their Above Table Micro-Adjuster Worm Gear

Triton Upgrades Their Above Table Micro-Adjuster Worm Gear

03-08-2011 02:42 AM by HorizontalMike | 25 comments »

I have had my Triton 3 1/4hp router since last June 2010 and did not get to use it much until the last couple of months. I mounted this router on my TS extension and drilled the appropriate hole in the cast iron router extension and was good to go. The lifting mechanism worked well at first and then began to slip and eventually failed to lift, though adjustments could still be made when lowering via the above-table micro-adjuster. I called HTC-Triton (HTC are the new owners) in Michigan ...

DMT's Magna-Disc Sharpening System honing system

DMT's Magna-Disc Sharpening System honing system

12-12-2011 03:19 AM by Dave | 21 comments »

I have a worksharp 3000. {review of worksharp 3000} I use it every time I am in the shop. It is great for touch-up on a chisel and your right back to work. Because I hone more than anything else, I was in need to replace my 1000 and 3600 grits. If you get the replacements from Worksharp it can get pricey. The 1000 is a dollar and the 3600 is about five bucks. So I found DMT’s Magna-Disc Sharpening System for about 50 bucks from amazon. I received it and followed the directions in the b...

Fair priced little branding iron.

Fair priced little branding iron.

08-05-2011 04:58 PM by mafe | 20 comments »

This is a UK seller but the price so fair that it might be worth buying even the shipment.And it comes in 220v and with an English power plug (I changed mine to a Danish plug). The burner plate with my Japanese inspired MaFe logo.You will need to make your own artwork and send it to the seller in the right file formats, no premade templates here so if you don’t know how to do this or have some one that can help you this is not the right product. Finally I got my branding iron!Do I need ...

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...

The Untimate router lift! - Woodpeckers PRL V2

The Untimate router lift! - Woodpeckers PRL V2

02-18-2010 12:47 AM by GaryK | 50 comments »

Does your arm get tired cranking your router up and down in your router lift? Especially when you hve to crank it all the way up to change a bit? Well, how about no cranking at all and go from all the way down to all the way up in ONE SECOND! Well the new PRL V2 from Woodpeckers does just that. Install the spring loaded handle, give it quarter turn and you can pull or push the router to where ever you want it. Just stop it when you are close and use the micro adjustment wheel to reac...

Fantastic lumber mill in Western Massachusetts

Fantastic lumber mill in Western Massachusetts

05-22-2012 04:22 PM by lumberjoe | 38 comments »

As I am new to woodworking, I found the transition from crappy big box lumber to quality hardwoods very intimidating. Buying planed dimensional lumber by the liner foot is a much different experience than buying rough cut lumber by the board foot. While the internet is a great resource for many things, I could not find good information on saw mills close to me. Since this location is about 15 minutes away from me, I figured I would take a chance. 1 – The owner is VERY knowledgeable. ...
