A must have for my shop

A must have for my shop

10-17-2010 05:14 AM by Chris | 7 comments »

This was a birthday present this year; I have only just been able to get some shop time with it. I am in the middle of a bookcase build and found this to be invaluable removing the whisper thin bit of wood needed to make the shelves fit just right or to clean up the home made moldings to complete the top of the case. Ease of Use:If you have used other planes you will find this plane to be straight forward and intuitive. Adjustments: The mouth is adjusted by loosening the locking screw...

Bridge City Tool Works JM Pro Single Wing and Dovetails

Bridge City Tool Works JM Pro Single Wing and Dovetails

02-13-2011 01:49 AM by Cubby | 7 comments »

I have been looking at Bridge City products for some time. I haven’t used them, however, because of the cost. You see, I never drove a Jaguar before. Well, recently I purchased the Bridge City Tool Work’s “Jointmaker Pro Single Wing” saw. This tool, ‘merely’, is a japanese saw blade tucked away in a unit that permits wood cutting operations. The precision cuts enabled by this tool and the surface definition produced by the cuts it makes is , in my opi...

Clean dados in framing lumber - 1 star off for instructions

Clean dados in framing lumber - 1 star off for instructions

10-29-2011 08:24 PM by Makai | 6 comments »

Aloha Lumberjocks! This is my first review and my first stacked Dado set. Bought this set for a fencing project with too many cuts for the “move the fence” technique. I visited the local Home Depot, Lowes, Woodcraft, and shopped Amazon. Woodcraft had the Forrest and Freud “dial a dado” sets, but $350 was more than I wanted to spend. I decided to get the Freud SD-208 which had good reviews here on Lumberjocks. Lowes didn’t carry it but Home Depot had somethin...

Trend T4 Router

Trend T4 Router

01-27-2013 08:31 PM by simmothewoodturner | 3 comments »

Its got a brilliant variable speed adjustment and there start/stop switch is easily reached. Although it doesn’t have a soft start, it doesn’t really need it as it doesn’t really jerk when its switched on. One of the complaints people have is there is no fine height adjustment. No there isn’t but you can buy one to screw on for a small extra cost, but this is a budget router. You can’t expect it to have everything.The guide bushes are very easily attached to t...

For the Garage Workshop

For the Garage Workshop

07-06-2013 06:23 PM by Spur | 8 comments »

Just a quick note on the Chamberlain Whisper Plus from the box store. As a garage door opener it works great, you can leave it partially or fully open, and it has a battery backup, and a neat digital opener instead of the simple doorbell button to open and close it, which includes the ability to lock the garage door, and tells the time and temp. As far as woodworking goes, this is not the main reason I wanted to mention this opener. It also came with a little gizmo you plug into the wall, and...

After 5 years it's still kicking

After 5 years it's still kicking

01-22-2014 06:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I own only two newer craftsman tools. One is a 4” grinder that has lasted me 4 years after makita’s and dewalts burned out after about a year each. Go figure. And this little compressor that has been stellar..I’ve been wanting to give this little compressor it’s due for some time now as I’ve had tons of experience with it. .This compressor is now rated at 1 hp. Mine was labeled 1.5 hp. I think though that they are the same item. The hp must have been reassessed o...

Makita LS1013F 10-inch Compound Sliding Miter Saw Review

Makita LS1013F 10-inch Compound Sliding Miter Saw Review

07-18-2008 03:34 PM by Timber4fun | 8 comments »

Introduction – Over the last 14+ years, I’ve been using a 10-inch Craftsman Compound Miter Saw. It has served me well. In conjunction with the Craftsman Miter Saw, I had purchased a used Craftsman Radial Arm Saw. Unfortunately the Radial Arm saw had a wobble to it. It was not very accurate. I am guessing the previous owner damaged the saw mechanics. Since that time the sliding miter saw has emerged as a viable tool to replace the regular miter saw and the radial arm saw. With limited w...

New Parallel clamps from Bessey

New Parallel clamps from Bessey

03-20-2009 08:06 PM by Tony | 6 comments »

I recently purchased quite a few of these clamps – see my blog http://lumberjocks.com/topics/5240. These clamps are the next progression of the old K.Body clamp from Bessey and are available in 8 sizes from 300 mm (12”) to 2500mm (98”). I found the clamps to have a professional feel of German engineering, which gave you confidence when you used them. The clamping pads stay perfectly square and parallel even when full torqued, the non mar pads are very effective on semi h...

Poulan P3314 Chainsaw

Poulan P3314 Chainsaw

05-10-2010 08:51 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 14 comments »

I bought this Poulan 14” P3314 a couple of years ago because I wanted a smaller saw for small jobs. It had a very good price at Lowes. I have a small electric for around home, but now needed one for woods use. My other saw is a 041 Super Stihl. I don’t recall what it weighs but I run 28 and 32 inch bars on it. It is a bit unwieldy at times and a bit tiring for all day use. This little Poulan has plenty of power for its 14 inch bar and cuts fast and straight. The only down side is the ...

Behlen Water Base Grain Filler (Mahogany)... Its PINK!

Behlen Water Base Grain Filler (Mahogany)... Its PINK!

10-18-2010 04:46 PM by spaids | 18 comments »

As a grain filler I have to say that I believe it will do the job. As a Mahogany grain filler I think this is some kind of a joke. Its absolutely pink. Even less natural looking than it appears in the photo. That stirring stick was a scrap of white oak and its sitting on mahogany. Why on earth would I want to fill mahogany grain with a pink filler? Because of the color, this product is a FAIL.
