I’ve never written a review before. But, there’s been many conflicting reviews on the internet such as Amazon and a few others about the difficulty of assembling the base. I’ve had no problems putting this together. However, the box did say “Improved Design”. Maybe that had something to do with it. It was quite simple, and the instructions were clear. The only reason I looked at the instructions was because some people were having such problems, that I was try...

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

Ash Vac Attachment (Sawdust intermediate collector ?)

10-09-2011 01:00 PM by Don Johnson | 4 comments »

I obtained this product from ALDI, and I appreciate that they may not have outlets all over the world, but for UK (and German ?) LJs, looking for a cheap and cheerful dust collector to go before a domestic vacuum cleaner, at £14.99 this could be a useful accessory. The ports are simply positioned vertically in the top, so there is probably little cyclone effect, and the system depends on the included Herpa filter to prevent ‘nasties’ getting to the driving vacuum cleaner. But...

Windsor design 60" workbench

Windsor design 60" workbench

01-07-2013 07:16 AM by flyboiy | 11 comments »

On sale for $139, how could I go wrong. You could not build this on your own for less. The felt lined drawers are roomy and strong. The top of the bench is roughly 1” solid oak, with 2×1 oak edging all the way around. As a matter of fact, the meat of the table is solid oak except for parts of the drawer and the bottom shelf. After assembly (2 hours) I was amazed at how sturdy it was. As with many wood projects that need to be assembled, I had some alignment issues, but not a big de...

Hock Blades plane iron and cap iron (chip breaker)

Hock Blades plane iron and cap iron (chip breaker)

05-26-2013 07:42 PM by ic3ss | 6 comments »

I’ve been wanting to upgrade the blade in this plane since I restored it a while back. The iron is almost gone and pitted badly and the cap iron is mainly what has prevented this plane from being used in my shop as it chatters really bad. I’ve tried sharpening and flattening the blade, and re-shaping the cap iron but it’s warped so bad it will never work. I finally put out the cash for a blade I picked up from Woodcraft but they didn’t have a cap iron in 2-5/8” w...

WoodRiver #92 Medium Shoulder Plane

WoodRiver #92 Medium Shoulder Plane

12-27-2013 03:56 PM by woodmaker | 7 comments »

Have I mentioned I have the best wife in the world! Found this under the Xmas treel. What a beauty, feels good in the hand, nice heft to it. Will have to research how to prep it for use and the sharpening angle etc.. More review will be added later, but see no reason not to do 5 stars. I pulled it apart and put it ack together and no pieces were broken/cracked etc. Hmm, I’ll have to cut some dado’s and tennons so I can use it. LOL! Like i need an excuse.

Delta 1950's 4" Jointer - Rebuild

Delta 1950's 4" Jointer - Rebuild

01-31-2008 07:31 PM by Gary Ratajczak | 11 comments »

I thought I would post a review of a “vintage” tool I refurbished a few months back. I currently have a small shop, and was looking at bechtop jointers. Happened to mention my search at the office, and one of the guys indicated he had an old jointer that he was no longer using. After $50.00, and his help to lift it into my truck, I was off on a re-furb project. As the price of new tools continues to rise, along with the cost of fuel and food, I think there is more opport...

Making wood flowers with Ebook "Forever Flowers""

Making wood flowers with Ebook "Forever Flowers""

02-14-2009 04:53 AM by Bob Collins | 7 comments »

I downloaded this eBook about 10 months ago after asking how these flowers were made, I had imagined that wood chips from previous carvings projects were collected and glued together. I was soon directed towww.TheCarversCorner.com and for a well spend $5.00 I downloaded the ebook straight to my computer. After reading the easy to follow instructions, I went out and collected some suckers from a Poplar tree which were easy to whittle while reasonably green. I didn’t have any c...

How to Use your pneumatic tools without a compressor

How to Use your pneumatic tools without a compressor

07-28-2009 10:17 PM by jerryz | 11 comments »

I got this at WoodCraft and had a chance to use it last weekend with my framing nailer.I drove 2 3/4” nails into 2×4 Pressure Treated Lumber to make a frame. Let’s say that it definetively works as stated.With the 9oz CO2 bottle I was able to complete my project, the nails were driven deeply without issues.I also used it with my brad nailer. It works just like a normal regulator and you can adjust the pressure according to your tool requirements.What I like it most is that I ...

Watta Mug !

Watta Mug !

04-18-2010 02:00 PM by Zuki | 11 comments »

A part of the Rockler Bench Cookie Challenge I won a set of bench cookies and a mug. They finally arrived last week. I will blog about the cookies later . . . but now I want to speak about the mug. I am a big tea drinker and I found that with most mugs I had around the house I would have to go and get a refill as there just was not enough in one cup. Well . . . let me tell you something. This Rockler mug rocks! When I opened the package I saw the mug box and thought “pretty big box ...

First impressions of my new air cleaner

First impressions of my new air cleaner

09-14-2010 06:04 PM by lsemarc | 12 comments »

I thought for years that dust collection and air quality in the workshop wasn’t that important. After my grandfather passed away from lung cancer I decided that I should do something about protecting mine. Without my wife knowing I went and picked one up and figured I had a couple of weeks before she noticed the charge on our account. Due to traveling I was unable to get it installed for about two weeks. The guilt about not telling her finally got to me and I told her what I did, surpri...
