Powermatic 3520b, superstar

Powermatic 3520b, superstar

12-24-2009 03:29 AM by Padre | 9 comments »

I’ve had my Powermatic for almost a year now, and I have used it a LOT. It runs true and smooth. The lathe was perfectly level/square right out of the box. I have had NO problems with this lathe. It is quiet, powerful and it feels good to be at. It makes you comfortable knowing that you will be able to do what you want to do. At first, being a new turner, it intimidated me a little, but now, we are best friends. I would not hesitate to recommend this lathe to anyone.

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

Making Woodpeckers Locking Rings Readable

09-03-2010 03:54 AM by PoppyJo | 7 comments »

Hi to all my fellow Woodpeckers, I just received my set of 8 Locking Rings for the PRL V2. I’m very impressed with the lift, but a little disappointed with the Locking Rings. They don’t look like some of the pictures and are very hard to read (have to catch the light just right). So an easy solution is to use “White Out” over all the recessed lettering, let dry and clean up using mineral spirits, now thats makes my job a little easier. The White Out is pretty tough ...

A book about the business aspects of Furniture Making

A book about the business aspects of Furniture Making

01-23-2011 10:46 PM by travisowenfurniture | 3 comments »

I loved this book. Though some of the specifics in this book aren’t up to date (written in 1984) and doesn’t even apply to the US (written in the UK), I found this book to be incredibly insightful and informative. Alan Peters apprenticed under Edward Barnsley, the son of one of the founders of the Arts & Crafts movement. He gives a concise history of the movement as it started in the rural countryside of Britain, catered to a public which could actually afford the work, and...

More Wisdom From The Past

More Wisdom From The Past

This book review is from the February 2012 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera (Gary Roberts) is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)Woodwork Tools and how to use them This book, another one by William Fairham, is, in my opinion, another great book for woodworkers interested in learning all about hand tools, although there is some information about power tools in the book. Information includes the parts of the tools, how to use the tool, when to use the...

Grizzly G0609X 12" Jointer

Grizzly G0609X 12" Jointer

07-18-2012 12:11 AM by Joe | 11 comments »

It was time to upgrade my 6” Delta jointer, which has served me well for 4 years. I was planning to go with an 8” but decided to go ahead and get the 12”. This is my first Grizzly tool and so far it seems to be worth the money spent. A1Jim done a good review on this jointer so I am not going to rehash the same info. I will go over a few issues I had with mine. - Fit and finish is good, not great. It’s heavy, it’s quite, hey it’s a bear.- The table faces and the fence face were very nice...

Shop Fox W1706 Review - Satisfied Customer

Shop Fox W1706 Review - Satisfied Customer

01-02-2013 08:36 PM by DamnYankee | 21 comments »

Recently purchased the Shop Fox W1706. I was driven to purchase this bandsaw for a combination of reasons – price ($580), reviews found on-line and by personal contacts (almost no negative ones found), features. The saw came with a quick tension release, fence and miter. I purchased the riser kit as well. As I just recently pruchased it and have not used it very much this review will focus on set up and initial impressions. The set up was EXTREMELY easy as it was nearly fully...

3M Sand Paper 150 gr.

3M Sand Paper 150 gr.

05-17-2013 06:41 PM by lumberjockey | 8 comments »

Hello there guys. This is my first review. After reading and learning from the reviews here, I felt that I should contribute something. Even though if it’s as trivial as sandpaper. I bought this sand paper from Lowes. I’ve always used the Norton brand sand papers and I couldn’t find any on the shelves at Lowes. And so I figured sand paper is sand paper. How much difference could there be. And also, it’s from 3M. And 3M is an good company with numerous excellent produc...

High Value

High Value

I bought this saw a couple of years ago. It was a $6 (+/-) purchase. I bought it not expecting I would use it nearly as much as I have. I’ve used it on all types of wood – rip as well as cross-cut. It has performed extremely well. I recently found myself in a situation where I needed to make some cuts in concrete backer board, and this saw was the only thing in my toolbox that could do it. And the saw performed beautifully but, I have to say, the cuts trashed the teeth....

Footprint 4 Piece Chisel Set

Footprint 4 Piece Chisel Set

04-09-2010 09:20 PM by cstrang | 11 comments »

These chisels are good quality Sheffield steel at a very economical price of only 29.99 for a set of four. The sizes are ¼”, ½”, ¾” and 1”. As always I wouldn’t trust the factory edge so after a brief time on the stone, I honed them on a diamond stone and now you could shave with them… however I wouldn’t reccoment that haha. Currently I am doing some dove tails and mortise and tennon work with them and they are holding their edge quite nicely. I will probably pick up a 3/8” chisel...
