Improper sales / marketing techniques

02-24-2012 08:37 AM by BigBear | 27 comments »

About three months ago I received a notice from this company claiming to have sent me a DVD and wanting me to either return it or send them $12.95. I never received anything from them. But, even if I did, according to the post office it would have been a gift from them and I would be under no obligation. I have asked them to quit, reported them to the post office and the BBB. So far, nothing has worked. They keep on sending demands for money. I have learned that this is one of several ...

Lee Valley Picture Framers/Glaziers Hammer

Lee Valley Picture Framers/Glaziers Hammer

07-22-2012 09:23 PM by JohnnyB | 4 comments »

I have had mixed results – mostly poor – when driving brads into picture frames to secure the pictures. Lots of bent brads. Because I was about to install glass in a cabinet door using strips of wood held in place by brads, and because I did not want to mess up at this final stage in my project, I ordered one of Lee Valley’s special picture framing hammers. This hammer has a rotating triangular head with a totally flat face, and a round head with a flat face. In use, the two...

Stanley Flatbase Spokeshave

Stanley Flatbase Spokeshave

05-24-2013 05:08 PM by Nugs | 5 comments »

One of my first woodworking projects was carving a canoe paddle, I didn’t want to spend too much on tools because I wasn’t sure if I would like the hobby. I picked up this spokeshave on Amazon for a reasonable price of $20. I’ve had a lot of problems with it but with some small modifications it was a pretty usable tool. My first issue was with it jamming up, no matter how thin I would set it, the shavings would jam it and I would have to take it apart to unclog it. My sol...

Excellent Saw, Great Power, Good Price

Excellent Saw, Great Power, Good Price

01-29-2008 04:30 AM by wildbill903 | 9 comments »

I purchased the 10” Hybrid saw in December last year, so it has been in the shop fewer than two months. But in these two months we have grown quite close. My wife named her “Biesy Baby” after the fence.I’ll touch on a few of the more important points in my review of the saw, and hopefully add some insight into your shopping experience. Features: The saw came, as the name states, with the left tilt feature. Two noted luxuries this affords are in large mitred-edge ...

Dust Deputy Delux Kit

Dust Deputy Delux Kit

10-07-2011 07:06 AM by Andy123 | 4 comments »

I received the kit today and I was excited to try this sucker out. (No pun intended….Okay maybe a little) The kit had all of the bolts, washers and nuts. It went together easily, but the directions were not perfectly clear. The only complaint of assembly is that there was not enough copper tape included to ground the system as suggested. I took the system to my shop and hooked it up to my Shop vac. The cyclone’s connections were tapered so connecting to my vac was easy. I cleaned ...

Veritas Medium Shoulder Plane

Veritas Medium Shoulder Plane

01-06-2013 12:55 PM by BigDawg | 8 comments »

I am not surprised at how well refined this plane is. The sole is perfectly square to the sides and the blade is perfectly ground to just barely hang over the edge of the rabbet hole. The blade is extremely easy to flatten and sharpen and I had the plane up and running in about 15 minutes after I protected the metal surfaces with CRC 3-36 spray lubricant. Features First of all, I have tried both the medium and large shoulder plane, but I ultimately bought the medium shoulder plane becau...

This review is long overdue, which is a good thing. I wanted a long courtship. I don’t know if this thing has exploded into the World’s greatest invention or not; I’ve been out of it a bit. .See blog first at:http://lumberjocks.com/Bertha/blog/31229.OK, this thing seems expensive, that’s the first response. My experience with the unit warrants the price..Whether than go through the pros/cons, I’ll just stream-of-consciousness my experience with it..I installed it...

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

06-22-2014 06:06 PM by retfr8flyr | 8 comments »

I have had my Baileigh Industrial JP-1250 for about 8 months now and I think I have used it enough to give a credible review. Baileigh has been around in the metal machine business for years but just started getting into woodworking machines. I did a lot of research before I pulled the trigger on this machine and decided, at the price it was selling for, I couldn’t pass it up. The machine arrived in great shape with excellent packaging. It comes with 4 heavy casters but they don̵...
