Rockler 34193 Pizza Blade cutter Kit

Rockler 34193 Pizza Blade cutter Kit

01-20-2013 01:56 PM by John Truffa | 3 comments »

I’m a crafter and have made many pizza cutters using the Rockler Kit. No one comes near it it for durability and craftmanship. I use cocoblo for the handle. To keep the handle from cracking when inserting the threaded insert I put a ferrel on the end (same size as the one that comes with their ice craem scoop). I’ve been looking for a plastic blade cover to no avail! If anyone can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I called Rockler but they couldn’t hel...

Good Chisel set for the money

Good Chisel set for the money

07-29-2014 12:05 AM by mramseyISU | 10 comments »

I’ve had these chisels for about a month now. I made the decision a while back I wanted to start cutting dovetails by hand and wanted an upgrade over the Irwin chisels I picked up at home depot a few years back. First thing I noticed was how light they are in your hand. They really feel like I’m holding a pencil not a piece of steel. That being said they are tough chisel. Out of the box they were pretty sharp and I was playing around with them and I was paring some end grain white...

I was inspired to post this review after seeing Groovemadman’s very slick project post of a knock down sawhorse/bench ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/5298 ). This table is just a Lifetime brand 2’x4’ folding plastic table that I bought at Sam’s. It is very portable, easy to store, reasonably rugged, and just a little wobbly along the 4’ side. And, of course, useful for everything a table is useful for. But here’s the real trick for me. This table i...

Triton Router

Triton Router

08-19-2009 01:45 AM by Ed Elizondo | 16 comments »

I purchased the Triton 3 1/4 HP back in April of this year at the Houston Woodworking Show. I didn’t have a chance to use until just a few weeks ago. I loved the action while using the plunge and the soft start made it easy to handle and manuver. Having the variable speed made it easy when using the larger bits for raised panels. I currently have it mounted on my router table and while although I wish I had the hand crank to raise and lower the bit, I make do adjusting under the table. ...

Don't Eat this cookie,

I just got a set of these, and I was pretty surprised. I was a little hesitant to shell out $11 bucks for a glorified piece of wood but they work pretty good. They really remind me of a router mat that I bought a few years ago, they have the same type of non slip surface. You could probably make some from those drawer liners or non slip rug liners. But for me as busy as I am I would rather just buy them and keep going then stop and make them. Pretty cool though, I have to admit I will pr...

Wanna break something...?

Wanna break something...?

02-08-2011 02:56 AM by christopheralan | 2 comments »

This scary looking thing is the Dead On 18-Inch Annihilator Utility and Wrecking Bar. It is used for demolition and general purposes. It is kind of a Swiss Army Knife of hammers with many uses: Hammer, Nail Puller, Board Straightener Drywall Demolition Axe, Wrench, Tile Puller/Ripper, Wire Stripper, and Bottle Opener. It weighs in at almost 4 pounds. Besides intimidating innocent 2×4’s and drywall, this hammer is great. I have used it for day-to-day woodwork and for building heavy-...

Perfect in every way.

Perfect in every way.

This blade is great for cutting box joints and dados. I prefer the 1/4 inch cut, the 3/8 inch is seems not as controlled (it is) but I still stick to 1/4. I tried this in a crosscut and a rip cut, both cuts were excellent. I was just too lazy to change my blade for 4 cuts. I believe that for the price $65 at Amazon it is the best bargain out there.A purist would probably use this set for dados or box joint cutting only, but I a true woodklutz ripped 24” that was as good as you could...

As is often the case with Carba-Tec tools (FYI, Carba-Tec is Australia and New Zealand’s equivalent to Rockler), this is probably some other companies product that has been bought under licence and rebranded (this is common place – my Carba-Tec branded bench top mortiser for example, came with an Axminster user manual). It is none the less an excellent piece of equipment and well worth the NZ$180 that I spent on it.It is very heavy and solidly made, and was bang on accurate right out...

Great Saw for dovetails

Great Saw for dovetails

07-29-2014 12:27 AM by mramseyISU | 4 comments »

I picked this saw up a couple weeks back to try my hand at hand cutting dovetails after losing 4 teeth out of a Japanese style saw on one drawer. I’d read that the Japanese saws aren’t as good on harder woods like white oak which is what I mostly use, wish I would have read that before I bought the thing but other than that it’s a nice saw and I’ll keep it around I think. Back to the review at hand though. I started the process of laying out dovetails on 4 drawers and ...

Don't touch my drill!

Don't touch my drill!

I bought my DC925 in September. It has been my faithful sidekick since the day I bought it. Power to spare- you can expect the screw, bolt, or your wrist to break before you stop this drill. I have used it for everything from installing small hinges, to drilling 1” holes in concrete, to mixing mortar. The batteries last forever, the only time I have used more than one battery in a day was building a deck where I put 3500-4000 3” screws in. The battery still did about 2500 sc...
