Like everyone else, I’ve used tons of different bike locks and padlocks to protect my tools and equipment. But I recently found a really nice cable system that is specifically designed to protect contractors’ tools. It’s called a Skyd Cable System. It has a 20 foot retractable cable that is housed in a diamond plate aluminum box. The box is bolted into the bed of your truck. Mine is in between the wheel-well and tailgate, and it’s out of the way in that location. Overall, the cable sy...

This is why I trust Delta machinery :) I hope I am not coming off as a brand snob but this jointer is over 36 years old, AND STILL RUNNING ON THE ORIGINAL KNIVES TO BOOT!!!!!! I picked this up this spring from a guy at work who was getting rid of his shop and moving into a condo for $100 and with only the cord needing replaced from dry rot and rust from being in the basement it performs like it did coming out of the box :) Adding to this Parts are still available along with the Owners manual ...

Loctite doesn't answer inquires

Loctite doesn't answer inquires

05-26-2011 09:16 AM by SailorJim | 22 comments »

This product burned through my tub surround. I wasn’t too happy about the ugly brown stain, but thought I might have done something wrong. I sent Loctite an inquiry using their web-site contact form and they did not reply, so I sent them the following inquiry one week later: ”Last week I sent you a note using this “contact” form and you didn’t have the courtesy to reply. The following is a repeat of my question.” “I’m not too happy wit...

Iron Dog Tape Clip with 3 Pockets

Iron Dog Tape Clip with 3 Pockets

10-05-2011 04:50 AM by TexAus | 1 comment »

I thought I’d post some pics of a little pouch that I love. It is just the right size to hold my tape measure, utility knife, pencils, etc. It has a nice clip on the back so you can easily clip it to your belt or pants. It is very light, has excellent build quality, and looks pretty cool to boot. And the price is not bad either. http://www.shop.irondogtoolgear.com/Tape-Clip-with-3-Pockets-70016.htm

Craftsman sandpaper kit

Craftsman sandpaper kit

07-20-2012 08:47 PM by AJswoodshop | 8 comments »

I do alot of sanding I find it fun. But my sandpaper was unorginized. I got the craftsman sandpaper kit and found it very useful. Not only it comes with a cool case for the sandpaper, it even comes with lots of sandpaper! I use this kit every day and very happy with the kit. Highly recomend buying it. It retails for $19.99 but I got it on sale for $9.99. I would give it a 5 star rating! AJ

Good bandsaw for a small shop

Good bandsaw for a small shop

06-07-2014 09:07 PM by MoshupTrail | 18 comments »

I wanted a small bandsaw to cut some curved parts from time to time. When I saw this one at Menards for just $229 it just had a look of being solid and the right thing for my small garage shop. The table is cast iron, and the housing is heavy duty steel and the motor appears to be a sealed 1/2 hp motor. You can see the specs at Menards site. Assembly was pretty easy, but I did not choose to assemble the stand. The directions are pretty typical – you have to read carefully twice ...

Real affordable quality

Real affordable quality

This machine has me hooked on Jet tools. I had really thought high quality cost a lot more. Granted it doesn’t have some of the features of it’s PowerMatic cousin (they are made by the same company). Power: More than enough. I haven’t been able to slow it down facing 6” wide boards. Reliability: Rock solid, the only issue I have had is with dust collection. As long as you have a dust collector hooked up there is no issue, but if you try to use just the chip ...

My Jet bandsaw is coming on 4 years old. I know because I bought it at the IWF in 2004.It has the “Carter-style” roller guides.The lower guides adjust on a cam to get close to the blade.There are a number of folks I let use my saw but I will accept responsibility for not loosening the adjusting nut. In any case, the cam broke.First call to Jet got me a very nice, but unknowledgeable young lady who passed me over to a guy in service who said that he would fax me a parts list. (Nowh...

Nice router table

Nice router table

04-14-2010 06:05 PM by Dustin | 1 comment »

This review is from: SHOP FOX W1701 1-Horsepower Shaper (Tools & Hardware)First off, I have three shapers now. Two 2hp Shop Fox shapers and this little 1hp Shop Fox shaper. I use it primarily for profiling door lips and it does an excellent job. I know there are a lot of shapers quite a bit like this one but I got the shop fox because it had a high enough rpm to handle my router bits necessary for the job. Setting it up you’ll have to space the table away from the frame or you won&#...

... and now I can't imagine drilling large holes without it

09-07-2010 03:24 PM by John | 6 comments »

I bought this a year or more ago and it sat on the shelf. This past weekend I had to drill several 2” + holes with forstner bits which usually means lots of shallow cuts and smoke and heat. I just happened to notice this can on the shelf, which I had pretty much forgotten about. This lube led to no smoke and I could take deeper “cuts” – e.g. 3/4” ply in maybe 4 plunges instead of 6-8 without. I also had a lot of pocket holes to drill this weekend and I ...
