Works like a charm

I’m not a plane fanatic like some, and in fact this is my first. I was having trouble controlling the dado depths on plywood sheets because of bowage and remembered seeing someone, somewhere using one of these things.Anyway, I used it on my last project and it made a world of difference.The adjustment wanders a bit, and by a bit I mean something like .005”-.01” on the depth, which is probably due to how I’m measuring it, but once it’s dialed in it works really we...

Who's got two thumbs and loves to staple?

Who's got two thumbs and loves to staple?

02-02-2008 05:55 AM by gizmodyne | 10 comments »

This guy. This stapler shoots 1/2” to 1 1/2” narrow crown staples. Have you ever had to remove a freakin’ narrow crown staple. It is not coming out. Staples resist racking. I use this for reinforcing cabinets and attaching their backs. Very strong. Also it is awesome for building lattice. Brads and finish nails will pull out. Staples hold strong. (Use galvanized for outdoor.) I would definitely buy another P.C. gun. No jams. No problemo. 4 stars because how...

G reat little impact driver - Bosch PS40-2

G reat little impact driver - Bosch PS40-2

06-10-2008 12:06 AM by GaryK | 16 comments »

I was looking for a small driver so that I wouldn’t keep having to swap bits out in my drill. I wasn’t really looking for an impact driver, but then I found about the rebate Bosch is currently having. Buy an impact driver and get a PS20 (non-impact version) for free. Now it doesn’t include a battery but the PS40 does include 2. So now I get both for the price of one. I got it for the out the door price of $142. How does it perform? Well, I drove a #8×3” deck...

Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

Kreg Large Face Clamps at a good price

07-29-2009 10:51 PM by Mike H | 5 comments »

I got the Kreg Pocket Hole Master system about a year or two ago and have been wanting to add a few more clamps for doing some larger projects under consideration / in the plans. Got a e-mail the other day from woodcraft.com and they had them (Item # 144665) on sale (or Clearance perhaps) for $12.99 each so I ordered (3) of them which just came today. For (3) of them plus shipping cost was $47.96 which I think is a great price as they used to be about $25 per + s/h I believe some of ...

Modern Practical Joinery by George Ellis

Modern Practical Joinery by George Ellis

04-19-2010 09:58 PM by JohnnyW | 8 comments »

George Ellis was a joiner working in England at the end of the 19th Century, and realising that he wouldn’t be around to mentor my woodworking journey in person, he decided to set down his instruction in this convenient text. First, he tells me, a joiner must become familiar with the many hand tools that he will encounter, and understand how to use them. He pays special attention to teaching me how to create efficient mortice and tenon and dovetail joints. He also tells me, with a ra...

Dewalt DW735 and DW7350 planer stand

Dewalt DW735 and DW7350 planer stand

09-16-2010 08:51 AM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

I have been very pleased with the 735 planer and 7350 planer stand with mobile base. The base rolls around effortlessly, yet locks down solidly with the push of a foot pedal. The planer works very well. I like to remove only about 1/32” per pass to limit wear on the machine. I have never had feed roller problems like some competitor brands, and the chip ejection fan (along with a Jet DC650 dust collector) leaves no chips on the floor and no dust in the air! Blade changes and adjust...

Great table saw for the money

Great table saw for the money

08-03-2012 10:04 AM by chadgr | 3 comments »

I bought this saw as a replacement for another cheapo saw which packed up on me :( I only paid £170 for the saw and after putting it together it ran fin and everything was set up apart from the blade not being parlell to the miter slots, however a quick turn with a screw driver fixed this. My only suggestion would be is to buy another saw with because the that came with only lasts a few cuts before requiring sharpening or other operations. All in all a good buy. Chad Aged 14

DeWalt Sander Review

DeWalt Sander Review

06-01-2013 06:59 PM by bear2 | 13 comments »

I have recently replaced my Porter Cable 333VS random orbital sander with a DeWalt D26453 random orbital sander. If I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS I would have. I have found three problems with the DeWalt.1. The dust bag is useless. It stops little dust and requires dragging a hose. The Porter Cable’s bag was superior and for most operations the supplied bag was fine. Seldom had to use a hose.2. The top of the DeWalt is domed and is hard to balance during sand paper ins...

Shaper Story

Shaper Story

12-29-2013 12:53 AM by soapmaker | 9 comments »

To review my story so far, I acquired an older grizzly shaper with only the 1/2 inch spindle. I ordered the other two. When I installed them they both had runout like a bent drill bit. I I initially thought the spindle cartridge may have some sort of issue after I installed the first set of spindles. I borrowed a spindle off of my work shaper and it lined up good with a runout of .004” So I took the first set of spindles and checked them on my work machine where they still didn’t improve. So...

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

Performax Air Filtration System 240-3783

07-04-2014 11:30 AM by Ajs73 | 7 comments »

Bought this filter unit at a garage sale,brand new in box for $40. I don’t haveanything to compare it with but I’m amazedat how much dust accumulates on the outerfilter. I’m also running a HF dust collector. The unit has a 5 mic. outer and 1 mic. innerfilters,3 speeds, & remote control. For $40 anythingthat keeps dust out of my lungs is worthbuying. It’s a perfect size for my smallbasement shop with low ceilings. Menards is selling them for $160& I believ...
