Open Up a New World on Woodworking

Open Up a New World on Woodworking

07-08-2008 09:12 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 11 comments »

I took a sharpening class at the Birmingham Woodcraft store a while back. I really didn’t know it then, but that class really has opened up my woodworking world. My projects are getting more involved and really more fun because I now have very sharp tools. If you have never had a sharpening class, you should make it your priority. I would have gotten into the woodturning world and stayed there about 10 minutes without sharp tools. Plane irons and chisels just about cut through ...

Why I didn't end up getting this one

Why I didn't end up getting this one

03-16-2009 03:33 PM by PurpLev | 30 comments »

For lack of current online info on this saw, I thought someone might be of use to the bits of info I’ve been able to get on this saw after contacting SteelCity (which knows no details on this saw yet) and going to Woodcraft and seeing it live – which was very dissapointing. The first disappointment was when I saw the photo that woodcraft posted of this new saw which was completely different then what Steelcity had posted in their ‘upcoming new products’ flyer. I had...

Footprint 247H Block Plane - A review from a beginner's perspective

Footprint 247H Block Plane - A review from a beginner's perspective

08-26-2009 01:57 PM by KellyS | 3 comments »

My opinion and review of a 247H Block Plane from Footprint tools:This is my personal opinion; we all know what opinions are like. If I hurt anyone’s feelings, I apologize. Rockler recently advertised these block planes on sale for $9.99. My wife talked me into buying one. (My first rule, if the wife offers to let me buy a tool, I never turn her down…That’s just bad form!) So I decided to buy it. It’s a very basic, no frills block plane, the mouth is non-adjustable, the blade has to be posi...

Gunhead CnC 7x lathe.

Gunhead CnC 7x lathe.

05-06-2010 01:13 AM by Mortemer | 1 comment »

I found this cnc lathe from Gunhead. http://gunhead.com/GMW/index.html I’m a small parts builder/hobbyist, and originally I was using a Sherline, but found it to be a bit inadequate. There just wasn’t a small lathe that was tough enough to do what I needed in steel,aluminum and various woods. That is what I thought until I found the Gunhead 7x lathe. I bought it,abused it and it does the job. It’s made of steel and iron, unlike it’s aluminum rivals. Best tool I ever...

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

06-25-2011 05:30 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

I was beginning to think I would never have much luck resawing on the bandsaw. I had been using Delta blades that were pretty well worn. I wanted a blade that would slice 3/16” veneers that I could plane down to a consistent 1/8” thick for laminating leg stock. This blade fits the bill. Give the man at your local woodworking store a $20 bill in exchange for the ability to resaw with ease. This is a 3 tpi X 1/2”wide hook blade with a raker set. As such it is very aggres...

Say hello to my little friend, The Harbor Freight 4oz. Detail Spray Gun.

Say hello to my little friend, The Harbor Freight 4oz. Detail Spray Gun.

03-18-2012 08:20 PM by Douglas Bordner | 19 comments »

I am generally loathe to buy Harbor Freight tools if they have a motor/moving parts, probably snobbish on my part, and not springing from a lot of actual experiential data. But I have had my eye on this little gun for some time, and as it had dropped in price from $15.00 to the ridiculously low price of $12.95, I jumped on it. I mean how bad can it go, this is the disposable chip brush of spray guns, so if it sucked I wouldn’t cry and would have bought an education in “you get wha...

New Fence

New Fence

01-24-2013 03:54 AM by Steve | 1 comment »

Well finally picked up my fence and rails for my General cabinet saw. Was a little dissapointed when I had to start removing parts from it and straightening them out in my vise. The measuring tape that sticks onto the front rail was all creased, and the backing tape that comes on it was half peeled off. The bolts that anchor the rails onto the table seemed a little light, and the melamine extension table that comes with it was not truely flat. All in all it is all mounted and set up so I can ...

Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar

Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar

02-10-2011 12:18 AM by christopheralan | 2 comments »

This is the monster Stanley 55-099 Fat Max Xtreme Fubar. Being a recent addition to my hammer arsenal, I am still putting it through its paces. It is the big brother to the Stanley 55-119 Fubar, which I have had for a few years. It is bigger, meaner, and much heavier at 4.5 pounds. It adds the claw type nail puller, similar to a regular hammer, which allows more versatility for pulling fasteners. The grip is identical to the 55-119, which I love: Great contour, no slip, and a great feel...

Harbor Freight Air Drill

Harbor Freight Air Drill

06-26-2011 03:59 AM by Raymond | 0 comments »

I reciently was at Harbor Freight and picked up a few goodies. I have been looking for a few air tools lately and since I have had good luck with Harbor Freight tools I figured to give them a shot. My first item was the 3/8” Reversible Air Drill With Keyed Chuck and Key 19.99, 5 cfm at 90 1700 rpm. Out of the box it looked great no packing grease to remove, packaged nicely in bubble wrap with instructions and a chuck key, no air fitting (would be nice if that was included). I have been ...
