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...

Robo Reel Long Overdue Rated A+++

Robo Reel Long Overdue Rated A+++

05-24-2013 06:27 PM by Bertha | 8 comments »

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...

Solid racks, decent price, great value, almost perfect

Solid racks, decent price, great value, almost perfect

06-05-2017 11:11 PM by jonah | 10 comments »

I love just about everything about this multi pack of clamp racks… except the pipe clamp rack. I don’t have any pipe clamps. Honestly, I wish I could have gotten a decent deal on a 2-pack, rather than the 3-pack. I wanted a parallel clamp rack and an f-style clamp rack, and this pack was the lowest cost option to get those two. The alternative was to get a 3-pack of either the f-style or the parallel rack and a single of the other one, or to get two singles. Amazon didn’t ha...

A wonderful eyesight helper for tiny things!

A wonderful eyesight helper for tiny things!

12-24-2017 03:36 PM by Holbs | 4 comments »

I started to reshape a handsaw with my normal sight and then with my reading glasses (1.25 Power…Maybe prescription glasses for higher power would work instead of these). Both were not up to par for the tiny delicate work that was needed. I thought about jewelry professionals that use those monocles and that should be exactly what would work! Out searching I go… I eventually found this magnifier. Found out, can not use monocles as the item has to be a couple inches away from ...

Which Joinery Technique is Best? Time, Strength, Repeatability

Which Joinery Technique is Best? Time, Strength, Repeatability

02-09-2018 09:51 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 18 comments »

Hey Guys, So, I wasn’t REALLY just looking at the domino, but that is how reviews are posted on this site. What I really wanted to do is compare popular joinery techniques and test speed, consistency, and strength. I looked at the Festool Domino, the Kreg K5 system, Biscuit joints, hand cut and machine cut mortise and tenon joints. I looked at them from the perspective of a professional batching out pieces and a hobbyist throwing together one piece of furniture to see how it would...

Super Fence Unboxing and Assembly

Super Fence Unboxing and Assembly

04-21-2018 01:12 PM by MagicalMichael | 1 comment »

This review can only address the unboxing and assembly because the fence has gone onto a not quite finished bench and so hasn’t been used yet. The unit is very solidly made, and I feel confident I will like using it. However when I first unboxed it I considered returning it to Woodcraft. Instead of a router fence I had a collection of 15+ parts and what looked like maybe a hundred assorted, unidentified nuts, bolts and washers. My first look at the instruction manual suggested tha...

A great resource for both hand and power tool in woodworking

A great resource for both hand and power tool in woodworking

07-27-2009 05:58 AM by Ben | 1 comment »

When I was in college I wanted to start building things out of wood. So I went to my library (Pickler Memorial at Truman State University) and this is what I found. It was actually a series of three books “Joinery”, “Shaping, Veneering, and Finishing”, and “FurnitureMaking.” It seemed like an older series, but it was all they had so I checked them out. What a great source of information! These books were fanatastic. Tage Frid takes you through everyst...

Ryobi Tek4 headphones....GREAT buy!

Ryobi Tek4 headphones....GREAT buy!

09-11-2010 09:58 PM by Mark | 12 comments »

So this is a must buy! I had just purchased these at The Home Depot at $60 and its worth every penny! I thought they were just regular headphones with a built in radio but then I tried it on and turns out it doesnt have a radio but it shuts out loud noises and magnifies the small sounds! I tested it out and I could still hear my radio as I was running wood through my planer! AMAZING! And not only that but it comes with a 4V battery and charger! You can also connect your MP3 player to it to li...
