Cheap, flexible, and accurate enough

08-21-2014 06:47 PM by jshroyer | 5 comments »

I always loose tape measures. I buy another and work really hard to keep it in the same place then loose it. I dont know how its possible all the time. So i decided to go to harbor freight and buy a few of these then buy 1 good one and keep it in a special location (pain in the butt). I just use these for rough cutting and measuring stock. i dont use this if its under 1”. I work as an engineer as we use metric at work. I love having this thing at work. No one will ever steal it becau...

Quick Release Clamp

Quick Release Clamp

02-27-2008 03:47 AM by Grumpy | 7 comments »

I have had two of these clamps for about 1 year. I bought them because I am a bit of a sucker for new tools. They sat in a drawer unused for a few months until I had a job that needed some tight clamping, the other quick grip clamps similar the Irwin XP did not have the gripping power.I now often reach for these clamps first because they have excellent holding power for their size (18”); -they are easy to apply-quick to release-the tensioning lever is ratcheted-you can adjust the tensio...

Porter Cable Router Power Tool Review

Porter Cable Router Power Tool Review

07-15-2008 03:27 AM by toolman | 11 comments »

We have always liked the Porter Cable Routers, but they still need to go through our power tool review steps. The first thing we noticed was the case. When we opened the case, the router was a tight fit. We usually like a little room for bits or other items that belong with the tool. We took the router out, unpacked everything, and tried to put it back. Obviously it fits back into the case, but there is no room for any other related items. At first we though it might be heavier than ...

A Bonafide Bargain in a Full Kerf General Purpose Blade

A Bonafide Bargain in a Full Kerf General Purpose Blade

03-19-2009 02:38 PM by knotscott | 3 comments »

The Oshlun 40T general purpose blade is a fairly standard ATB design with a steep positive hook, large C4 micrograin carbide teeth, thick steel plate, 0.125” kerf, and copper silencers. The fact that it’s available for ~ $25 is the most distinctive feature that separates it from other good quality 40T general purpose blades. It’s surprisingly well made, is very sharp, and performs well within the range capabilities of a blade of this design. It’ll rip glue ready edg...

Good for helping you get back to your projects quicker

Good for helping you get back to your projects quicker

05-08-2010 05:12 PM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 13 comments »

I won’t go into extensive review on this tool as JC did an extended video review of the WS2000 here. It came with 80 and 220 grit slotted discs which are good for medium duty grinding. I tried using the 80 grit solid wheel with the tool guide (coming up from underneath) and although it gave an accurate angle, it was more like grinding with 40 grit. Going to 220, it couldn’t get the grind marks out of the face of the bevel. I eneded up with a polished face with circular marks in...

My most used measuring device in the shop

My most used measuring device in the shop

10-17-2010 04:56 AM by Chris | 10 comments »

I have used this for marking out joinery, as a depth gauge, to check squareness, the list goes on. When I’m in the shop this is always in my pocket. Some may argue about the price but I must say that short of theft or me loosing it somehow I will not have to buy another one ever.

3 Piece Curved Jaw Locking Pliers Set

3 Piece Curved Jaw Locking Pliers Set

06-26-2011 05:05 AM by Raymond | 4 comments »

What a great set of 3 locking plyers 5” 7” and 10”. 6.99 holds tight, nice confortable handles. Adjusting screws work smothly and the jaws don’t move from side to side when you apply pressure. Nice deep groves in the jaws to hold tight. Jaws did not spring either when really reefing on them. Another great find

This review is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details) The Big Book of Whittle Fun by Chris Lubkemann is a little “big book” filled with a “wot of whittlin’ fun”. Small in stature (a great size for taking with you when planning on doing a little whittling) but big in content! This book has over thirty projects and is an inspiration for many more. Games – che...

Central Machinery Tile/Wet saw

Central Machinery Tile/Wet saw

09-05-2012 06:34 PM by AJswoodshop | 7 comments »

I’m working on a bathroom and I needed to cut some tile. I wanted something that wasn’t really pricey, so I went with this HF central machinery tile/wet saw. The saw has a few problems, but for the price I’m very happy. The main problem was, that water will splash out of the saw, if you don’t have the blade guard on. With the blade guard on it’s hard to see where your cutting. Its a bench top tool, I used my scroll saw stand, just so I wouldn’t have to use ...
