Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

172 days ago by Jeff_in_KCMO | 4 comments »

Is it weird that the whole time I was using my new Veritas Cabinet Scraper I was singing Sophie B. Hawkins’ line, “Damn, I which I was your lover,” over and over in my head? I know where it started… sorry, I was distracted by my four year old, Jane, who apparently was turned down by a boy in class today and she is really sad… back to it… it started when I took my first pass. Shhhhwit, a perfect shaving. “Damn,” the damn of amazement, not the ...

Fantastic Storage Chest -- Saves Me LOTS of Time

Fantastic Storage Chest -- Saves Me LOTS of Time

2335 days ago by Hawgnutz | 4 comments »

Boy, where was this years ago?!? I would give it 6 stars if I could! It is deep enough to hold my cordless drill, circular saw, pneumatic nailers, tool bags, planes, nails, screws, spare batterys and still have room for a little more. (It holds LOTS of tools!) Plus it has a wheel that allows me to move it from garage to pickup to site. Now, when I have a large project that will take a couple of days, I can store all my tools in one place until I complete that job! Woo Hoo! The top ha...

new General drill press

new General drill press

1938 days ago by bern92 | 11 comments »

this was my christmas gift(from me to me). I was looking to buy a drill press for a long time. It’s a nice tool, cast iron head and base and it’s heavy so it’s stable. The motor is 3/4HP and has enough power for me. It is made by General so like all the tools they do it is perfect…..

Diamond sharpening Kit

Diamond sharpening Kit

1244 days ago by dbray45 | 6 comments »

This kit came with 4 “stones” – actually 4 steel plates. The extra course is a little smoother than road surface. When I used this to flatten my 8000 grit water stone, I found that my flattening stone has been worn to a point that is no longer flat. When you get these, sharpen a piece of steel or something hard where you are not looking for that pristine mirror finish. I made a blade for a radius plane – thank Mads for this, the blade is now done – and went...

What can you expect from a 120$ table saw?

What can you expect from a 120$ table saw?

841 days ago by lumberjoe | 28 comments »

Some call it cheap crap, I say “challenge accepted” After many years of refinishing old tag sale furniture, I decided I’d like to do woodworking. I got some books, then got some tools. I wasn’t sold on the idea that I would be good at it or even like it, so I wanted my initial investment to be fairly small. Around Christmas time, Home Depot had this bad larry on sale for a little over 100$. I could have picked up something used and much nicer for short dough, but s...

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

669 days ago by ProDrawerCom | 8 comments »

9-21-2012: Other reviews on LumberJocks convinced me that the far less expensive version at Home Depot (the Ridgid brand) was the same product as the yellow MagSwitch. I’m in the middle of rough cutting plywood to build cabinets for my kitchen. Always wanted to try one of these because I believe in feather boards but just never get around to cutting some from wood. I really need them now. And I really need two because I’m cutting big stuff. I usually don’t ask clerks if they have a certain pr...

So-So Entry-Level Bandsaw

So-So Entry-Level Bandsaw

2335 days ago by Hawgnutz | 6 comments »

This bandsaw looked really good on paper with bearing guides, 7” resaw capability, and “adjustable” fence. Well, after all that hype dissapeared, it turned out to be only a so-so machine! I am dissapointed and wished i had saved my money and bought a Jet, Rikkon, or even a Grizzly! Within 4 months of very sporadic use, one of the bearings siezed on me. (Thank God I bought the extended warranty!) The service tech ordered set for me, but it still has a funny sound when ...

Maybe I got a bad one, but I'm getting a Grex.  This P-C is a loser

Maybe I got a bad one, but I'm getting a Grex. This P-C is a loser

1938 days ago by RalphB | 34 comments »

I bought one of these and have been thoroughly disappointed with it. No matter what the air pressure or length of the pin it only sinks them to flush at best. And of course you can’t adjust the depth. If I sand one bit you get a nice shiny (until it rusts later) little 23 gauge nailhead looking at you. I also do not like the fact that it lacks a soft nose. So if you try and hold it a little tight to get the pin sunk as far as possible you get a dent in the wood that is a lot worse ...

Craftsman 10" SCMS....A DO NOT buy

Craftsman 10" SCMS....A DO NOT buy

1762 days ago by MedicKen | 18 comments »

I purchased this saw brand new a couple of years ago. I wanted to give it a good run before doing a review. My first overall impression when I was looking for a saw was this would fit the bill and work nicely for my needs. I looked at some of the major brands when I decided I need a SCMS. My first choice was Bosch, but the price drove me away. Then I went to DeWalt but I couldnt find the model I wanted locally and I wasnt gonna pay for shipping. So I guess I kinda settled on this one. I sh...

"Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design"

"Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design"

1643 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 5 comments »

When it comes to woodworking, I often feel like I am working my way backwards. I was proficient with a tablesaw before I picked up my first handsaw. I knew my way around a drum sander before learning how to use a smoothing plane. And perhaps most disturbingly, I was creating and building my own furniture before I knew anything about design. Heck, who am I kidding? I still know nothing about design! I know what I think looks good and I follow a few basic rules, but more often than not I ...
