Circa 1850 Try Plane

Circa 1850 Try Plane

01-31-2011 03:23 AM by Dave | 19 comments »

I was in need of a joiner plane. I had come across this plane at a antiques shop in MS. For a grand total of $27.00. It needed a little work. The mouth was missing a chunk in front of it. On the blade is stamped [dwights french and co.]. On the nose of the plane is stamped [H. J. Nazero and co. of Milwaukee]. And all over the plane is stamped [B. F. Pfeiffer]. Doing some internet research. I can place the manufacture of the blade and the plane between 1850-60.Now with a piece of red oak. I r...

Router Dust Collection That Works!

Router Dust Collection That Works!

06-01-2011 05:48 PM by TheDane | 12 comments »

When I bought my DeWalt DWP611PK router (which I love), I didn’t order any of the accessories for it. But, after such positive experiences with the router itself, I decided to give the accessories a shot as well. DeWalt offers four accessories for the DWP611PK … edge guides for both the fixed base and plunge base, as well as dust collection adapters for both. I haven’t had enough opportunity to use the edge guides (DNP618 for the fixed base, DW6913 for the plunge ba...

How to Make Wooden Farm Toys

How to Make Wooden Farm Toys

08-03-2012 02:27 AM by Raymond | 2 comments »

Kuritis Foote asked for volunteers to review his book “How to Make Wooden Farm Toys”. The book has plans for four distinct wooden Farm Toys. Project 1 is a Combine with a corn head and a rolling reel head, project 2 is a Skid Steer Loader, project 3 is a Tractor and project 4 is a disk attachment. I received my copy yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to read it. The book is very nicely bound and printed on very good quality paper. Kurtis has done a great job with his approach to the book. It is w...

A great deal

A great deal

01-08-2013 12:00 PM by Purrmaster | 45 comments »

I’ve been using this blade for a few months now. It’s lived in my miter saw most of that time and I just tried it out on the table saw for rip cuts. I’ve been very pleased with this blade, overall. The titanium nitride coating does seem to reduce friction and give a somewhat cleaner cut. The blade is nice and sharp out of the box. It cut more easily and cleanly the Kobalt blades I had been using in the miter saw. And the rip cuts it did were good too. The saw didn&#...

Scheppach Deco-Flex - a decent starter scrollsaw for an OK price

Scheppach Deco-Flex - a decent starter scrollsaw for an OK price

05-31-2013 05:57 AM by Skiedra | 5 comments »

+ nice working capabilities+ normal operating noise+ large “throat” depth+ takes both pin and pinless blades+ the addons and the rotary tool is a perfect addition to a beginner scrollsawer. So you do not need to buy a dremel or any similar rotary tool - bit painful process to change the blades. You have to rotate 3 screws, 2 on top, 1 at the bottom of the saw.- you seriously need to bold it down, otherwise it moves- attached rotating bit are a bit too “toyish”, but does some light sanding/...

Grizzly G0582 24: Wide Belt Sander

Grizzly G0582 24: Wide Belt Sander

07-03-2014 02:10 PM by BoardSMITH | 7 comments »

After two months of hard use I feel somewhat qualified to write a decent review. So here goes. Crating and packing – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Delivery – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Instruction manual – Blah, blah, blah, etc… Fit and finish, Blah, blah, blah, etc… Now that all the fluff is out of the way. I purchased a Grizzly wide belt sander because I was unable to find another on the market of that size. My budget would handle a 24̶...

problems but fast customer service

problems but fast customer service

03-12-2015 08:06 PM by Ray s | 6 comments »

I purchased a new Rikon 70-220VSR lathe on the 11th of November 2014 from Woodcraft. I turned a few pieces and the Rikon stopped working. I called customer service and they sent a new control board via two day mail. It took very little time to install and the lather worked like a charm. One caveat, you must stop the motor and wait for the speed indicator to clear prior to changing from forward to reverse of vice-verso. Cheers for the customer support for the fast identification and deliver...

Wonderful Customer Service Experience

Wonderful Customer Service Experience

05-15-2015 09:25 PM by Lenny | 17 comments »

This is just to share a positive customer service experience. I know these days good customer service is often hit or miss. That said, I purchased the shop stool pictured above, over 2 years ago. Recently, while reaching down to pick something up, while still seated, I caused the seat to crack. The chair is rated for about 330 lbs. and while I am well below that weight, I was putting a lot of stress on an edge of the seat as I reached down. I called Woodcraft with the intention of simp...

The Hitachi 3-1/4 router - My Two Cents

The Hitachi 3-1/4 router - My Two Cents

06-20-2015 05:34 AM by MikeSpanky | 10 comments »

I purchased mine about a year ago with one purpose in mind, using it strictly for dovetails on a Leigh jig. When I pulled it from the box I knew I had made a poor choice on this one. Thirteen pounds is no easy tool to handle for any long period of time. I have terrible tendoitis and back trouble, and this thing was a monster. Nevertheless, the money was spent and I was gullible. Besides it had the POWER. This router has a variable speed knob on one handle with easy access. It is a plunge r...
