MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

03-02-2012 03:29 AM by Pete_Jud | 6 comments »

Received this today, and mounted it up to a PC 690 D handle router. It’s kind of one of my “go to” routers in the shop. It was thicker than I expected, with a larger hole to be able to use larger bits than the Rockler clear insert that I had been using on this router, so it will not be able to use standard PC insert guides, and that”s ok with me as I have other plates to use. The laser was “dead nuts” on using a 45 V grove bit, But the feature I like the...

Excellent customer support for a lost package

Excellent customer support for a lost package

08-07-2012 10:11 PM by bobasaurus | 6 comments »

I ordered a few lathe tools from Woodcraft during their last sale, and was excited when I checked the tracking number at work and the box had been delivered. But then I got home and the package was nowhere to be seen. It either got lost or stolen, and it was pretty frustrating… never happened to me before at my house, and I’ve ordered tons of packages. I didn’t hold out much hope to get my items or money back, but I tried emailing Woodcraft’s customer service anyway...

2 Great Glue Brushes - Rockler and Betty Crocker

2 Great Glue Brushes - Rockler and Betty Crocker

06-10-2013 02:45 AM by Denco | 9 comments »

I bought a Rockler glue brush and it works great, just as advertised. When the glue dries, you can peel it off. Easy to clean, spreads well. However….I was in the dollar store one day and they had Betty Crocker basting brushes….for a buck each. My curiosity got the best of me (you know where I’m going with this). I decided to do a comparison….head to head….for the title of “Best Glue Brush”. I trimmed the Betty Crocker brush so the bristles (?) ar...

Expensive Junk

Expensive Junk

12-31-2013 04:19 AM by colvinatch | 30 comments »

I bought this bit as part of a three bit set for $75.00 and had high expectations after reading about their revolutionary four blade cutting bits. I put this cove and bead bit in and after the first cut (which was smooth) one of the blades split and separated from the bit and buried itself into my router table fence. What is most troublesome of all is the fact that I communicated this to Freud with no response in over two weeks, not only does Freud have terrible quality control, now ad non-...

review Oliver 4230 jointer

review Oliver 4230 jointer

07-10-2014 02:57 PM by bons | 11 comments »

I posted a couple of pics of my new Oliver 4230 jointer and have started to tune the machine up and learn all its little secrets for best performance. The jointer has a Shelix spiral cutter head. I looked at a lot of 8” jointers and liked the look and weight of the Oliver at the price point listed. I have not run a lot of stock through it but, so far, the machine is extremely quiet, powerful and cuts like a dream. The bed is 75” long and provides ample space for running long board...

Another quick review: Bosch RO20VSK

Another quick review: Bosch RO20VSK

08-02-2009 12:52 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 16 comments »

Third Update: Ignore the update below. Today, way after the fact I receive the roter plate Bosch, My faith in the company is restored. Good thing too because I own three of their tools, the sander, a 12” compound sliding miter saw, and their fantastic plunge router. I’m glad to see they keep their word even if belated. Thanks Bosch. Another Update (The above updates this older paragraph) 9/25: Read below regarding velcro problems. Bosch never followed through sending me the new...

How to book How to Carve Faces in Driftwood, By Harold L. Enlow

How to book How to Carve Faces in Driftwood, By Harold L. Enlow

01-05-2010 08:10 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 3 comments »

This is the first book I bought, when I started woodcarving. I bought this book at the Ozark Folk Center in Arkansas in 1980. This book helped me a lot in my first attempts at carving. Harold Enlow shows how to carve Wind Spirits, Etc. With a lot of step by step images. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I just remembered that this “TREE TROLL” was taken from this book.

Just picked up my new Bosch 18v Litheon yesterday morning ($239 can) for an install i had to do. I wasnt confident that my Dewalt would make it through the job and didnt want to be stuck without. This is the second Bosch drill ive had and now i wont use anything else. This drill is very light for an 18v which im sure mostly has to do with the lo-pro litheon battery packs it uses. i found myself check the case befor i left to make sure the drill was actually in there because it was so light co...

But seriously, review of a tape?

But seriously, review of a tape?

09-18-2010 01:09 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 4 comments »

Yes, If you, like me, had your share of problems with the right hand table saw scale then this review makes sense. Otherwise, you can skip it.Anyheaux, So the Ridgid 3660 TS right hand scale has been a problem since the day I got it. It was placed/taped in a wrong location. So I ordered an original scale and that one stayed on for two weeks and it started to peal off.The rail was cleaned completely before applying the strip. Maybe too hot in Houston. Not sure. But it was extremely difficult ...

6" and 12" Combination Squares

6" and 12" Combination Squares

10-14-2011 03:56 AM by DylanC | 4 comments »

Bought both for less than $20 at a local big-box store. Both checked out as square at full extension when I “showed the line to the square”. Also, both have cast steel heads and stainless rulers. The 12” has deep engravings and the 6” is etched. Both have scratch awls stored in the heads, also.
