csc 2000 from psi

06-07-2011 05:26 AM by paplou | 0 comments »

I have had my csc2000 chuck for over a month now and its way more then I expected for the price. I have turned a few bowls and a couple 11 inch plates plus a few baby rattles and have had zero problems with it. I bought it through Amazon and saved a few dollars. I recently bought the spindle drive for it and only tried it a few times but it work like it should, saves time in that I don’t have to remove the chuck to turn between centers. I have it mount on cheap craftsman lathe and al...

Good Jig Saw Great Price

Good Jig Saw Great Price

10-16-2011 12:39 AM by patcollins | 8 comments »

Another reconditioned tool from Direct Tools factory outlet in Hagarstown MD. This one looked brand new except for the RECOND branded into the housing. This is a standard orbital jig saw with adjustable blade angle, adjustable shoe angle, adjustable orbital motion. adjustable locking speed, and a max speed limiter on the trigger. It has plenty of control and power and far more adjustements than I will ever need. I can’t really see myself needing the adjustable blade angle or the a...

For any of you out there looking for an inspiring story in the art of wheelrighting you can look no further than George Sturts Wheelright’s Shop. The book is a first account adventure of George Sturts life as his father has passed away and left George to run the families Wheelright Shop in England during the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. The spirited writting evokes visuals of woodworking and blacksmithing. The materials and descriptions of oak, ash and wheelcarts…...

Some Knife!

Some Knife!

08-10-2012 03:01 AM by mpounders | 3 comments »

I really didn’t need another knife, but I have wondered how I might like a scimitar shape blade and I have admired the knives that Brandant Robinson makes. I was on his website and happened to see he had one of his catapiller style knives available, so I decided to order it while my wife was agreeable! This was on Saturday, a little before noon. I had recieved an email from Brandant confirming my order and saying it had been shipped in less than 2 hours! On a Saturday no less! He had h...

O1 vs A2

O1 vs A2

06-11-2013 01:34 AM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

This past Christmas I put the Lie Nielsen bevel edge socket chisels on my Santa Please Get Me List. Between my wife and mom I got 5….....of the O1 chisels. My bad, I should have been more specific. I already had a set of decent chisels from long ago and although I didn’t know for sure what type of tool steel they were made from I was disappointed in how long, or briefly in this case, they held a sharp edge. After reading many reivews on the A2 chisels I decided that was what I...

OK..OK…this isn’t about a new cool tool. However, sometimes it is nice to recognize the service and people behind those cool new tools. I recently placed an order with Penn State Industries online and used a gift debit card that I thought had enough on it to cover the order. Well, it didn’t and the order “bounced.” I got a very nice call and email and the Customer Service agent (Judy) worked things out for me with as courteous a tone as you could imagine. ...

fun romp goes from wood science to wood craft

fun romp goes from wood science to wood craft

A Splintered History of Wood: Belt Sander Races, Blind Woodworkers, and Baseball Bats by Spike Carlsen This is an easy, entertaining read, with a nice mix of humor, facts, and real-world knowledge. The book gets you started with a quick schooling in wood biology, then launches into a historical tour of wood, woodworking, and wood workers. He covers the silly and the serious from the perspective of both an interviewer and a carpenter. This isn’t an encyclopedia, it won’t repl...

Segmented Turning, A Good Beginning  by Bill Kandler

Segmented Turning, A Good Beginning by Bill Kandler

06-08-2011 04:17 PM by Bluepine38 | 2 comments »

8iowa mentioned Bill Kandler’s book in one of his posts, and since I was ready to start on segmentedturning and was trying to design a miter sled, I checked out his site. He not only had a miter sled, but hegave a free download of it’s design and how to build it. Naturally, like any woodworker, (we all seem to thinkwe can boil water better than the next guy syndrome) I am tweaking it to suit myself. Bill gives this awayin spite of the fact that he wants to sell you the complete...

Veritas Bevel-up planes

Veritas Bevel-up planes

10-16-2011 07:39 PM by Newage Neanderthal | 5 comments »

I am reviewing these planes as a set because for me that is how they were purchased and that is how they are used. I will be focusing more their use than how well made they are, primarily because it is already well known that they are top notch in that regard and me saying they’re machined nicely doesn’t add much. Fit and finishJust so it is touched on and to get it out of the way; these planes are very well made. Set up involved nothing more than removing the packing oil and honing the ...

Ryobi straight router bits, set of 4, suck

Ryobi straight router bits, set of 4, suck

08-10-2012 05:59 AM by CplSteel | 37 comments »

I think cheap tools have a place. I have 2 very nice kitchen knives and a few crap knives; i use them for different things. So i needed a bit to rough out a curve and using a router on a swing arm seemed to make sense, so I picked up these bits. I expected them to leave a rough edge, I expected them to be less than scary sharp, I expected them to do their job just not to be great about it. I was wrong, turns out red oak beat that bit silly. By my math, this bit made 4 36” passes ...
