1/4" Pistol Grip Screwdriver

1/4" Pistol Grip Screwdriver

06-26-2011 04:14 AM by Raymond | 4 comments »

As you can tell I was looking for a few air tools. This little guy is awsome. Tons of torque, drives 3” screws like mad. I can drive about 25 before my compressor kicks in Runs at 4 cfm at 90 psi. Great preformance forward and reverse. The direction selector is conviently located. Again no air fitting included. At 19.99 can’t go wrong, and a one year warentee. Nice fit and finish and great packaging.

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

MLCS Cast Iron Router Table Extension

03-18-2012 11:04 PM by SouthpawCA | 7 comments »

Having very limited space in my garage workshop I finally broke down and purchased MLCS’ Cast Iron Router Table Extension. This table replaces a Bench Dog table and a Rockler table. It’s mounted on your table saw replacing one of the existing cast iron extensions. The cast iron table is very heavy as my UPS guy will attest to. It came securely packaged and well oiled. After cleaning off the oil I removed the existing TS extension, in my case it was the left side of the tabl...

Great tools vs. good tools.

Great tools vs. good tools.

01-18-2014 09:44 PM by madts | 7 comments »

I got a fair amount of good Brownie points at amazon during Christmas, that I decided to spring the plunger on a Tormek T-3. I have had lots of problems here in Houston, working in a 2-car garage with all the humidity, to keep my tools sharp. Sharpen one day rusty the next. I have been using scary sharp, diamond stones, but I spent most of my time with dull tools. Not any more.I have spent a couple of days getting all the tools that need sharping out of the garage and cleaned them up.Then ...

Perfect for beginning but will want for more

Perfect for beginning but will want for more

08-19-2014 02:18 PM by jshroyer | 18 comments »

When i was just starting out woodworking i didnt know anything about tools. I went to school for engineering and did mostly metal working. From this i knew i didnt want a tiny little tool that wouldnt work worth a darn and to make sure that the model i bought was common enough to get parts and accessories. After searching google for table saw review and beginner table saw i found the bosch 4100-09. It was just what i thought would be perfect. A portable table saw for moving apartments. It ran...

Impulse purchase - seems ok but..

Impulse purchase - seems ok but..

01-02-2015 08:36 PM by philba | 6 comments »

So in the question feed my addiction, I swung by Rockler. The protractor was on sale for $10. The sales guy told me that they are going to be on sale in the new flyer for $15. I’m kind of a sucker for measuring tools so I bought it. First impression – it is well made. The ruler moves smoothly and the tightening knob works well. The display is easily readable. It shows .1 degree measurements. Probably the biggest drawback is how you calibrate it. As you can see in the pict...

Harbor Freight Router good for the price.

Harbor Freight Router good for the price.

01-28-2015 12:08 PM by TheLorax | 9 comments »

What’s in the box: You get the 2 HP 11 AMP Fixed base router, a 1/4”,3/8”, and 1/2” collets, two wrenches for changing bits one to hold theshaft and one to loosen the bit, it comes with a 1/2” shank 1/2” straight cut bit and finally it has an edge guide that comes with it. So far I’ve used it to cut some dadoes and some mortises while mountedto a homemade table for it. It appears to have plenty of power I’vecut through maple and plywood with...

Jet JJP-12 Planer/Jointer combo (Jointer mode)

Jet JJP-12 Planer/Jointer combo (Jointer mode)

07-14-2008 04:33 AM by GaryB | 7 comments »

Here are several pictures of the Jet JJP-12 jointer/planer combo machine in Jointer mode. I picked up the crated machine with a small flatbed trailer. 3 of us (myself, my 14 year old neighbor, and my 115 lb wife) were able to slide it off of the trailer, then off the palate and onto the mobile base easily, despite the machine weighing over 500 Lbs. It came almost fully assembled in the crate. Only had to install the portion of the guard over the blades, a plug on the end of the cord, and ...

CMT 10" 40T Full Kerf Blade - No Joy

CMT 10" 40T Full Kerf Blade - No Joy

03-18-2009 01:50 PM by knotscott | 10 comments »

The CMT 213.040.10 is a full kerf premium 40 tooth ATB saw blade intended mainly for use on a TS. I really wanted to like this blade…the attention grabbing orange color is so cool, plus it gives a constant warning to keep hands away. This was to be my new daily user for my new Shop Fox cabinet saw, but ultimately I’m disappointed as it underperformed expectations. There are pronounced swirl marks on the edges of every cut that make glue-ups straight from the saw marginally acce...

I was in need of a set of decent countersinks, and my local woodworking retailers BOTH were out of stock on the options they had when I looked, so I went to Amazon, and found this Mibro set. The price was certainly low enough, so I threw it in with a larger order and took advantage of the free shipping offer. Upon receiving my set, I took the digital calipers to them to verify sizes, and found them to be reasonably accurate within .001” which is certainly acceptable. And thus far wit...

Video Review of Hitachi's 2" Brad Nailer

Video Review of Hitachi's 2" Brad Nailer

02-10-2011 05:14 AM by Sailor | 5 comments »

Here is my review of a great little brad nailer that I have owned for over two years. Since this is a video, I was wondering if I should post it as a “video” blog post also? I figured I would ask so people wouldn’t think I was spamming or something.
