Freud Jointer knives = POOP

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

04-29-2010 02:54 PM by spaids | 29 comments »

These blades are so dull, I couldn’t even cut my finger with these. I contacted Freud directly about it and all I received was “thats our blades thats how they come. If you don’t like it you should return them to where you bought them. We don’t get any complaints about our blades” Umm YES you do get complaints because I was complaining with him right then. The dull blades I am replacing are sharper than these brand new Freud blades and Freud has ZERO concer...

Stanley Sweetheart Low Angle Block Plane

Stanley Sweetheart Low Angle Block Plane

09-29-2010 02:52 AM by David Craig | 9 comments »

I am a newbie when it comes to hand planes. I recently purchased a low cost Stanley 9 1/2, tuned it, and outfitted it with an A2 steel iron from Lee Valley. Total cost of time and effort was in the neighborhood of 60 dollars and a couple hours of my time. I have been checking on the costs of other plane offerings, and have been reading the reviews of the Sweetheart offerings with some interest. I have been mostly disappointed to find that the re-release of the Sweethearts were mostly negative...

Crap Powered Crap Saw

Crap Powered Crap Saw

02-06-2011 09:39 PM by travisowenfurniture | 25 comments »

I got this for $15, and i over paid. It doesn’t hold onto the blades because they keep falling out no matter how much I tighten the set screws. It doesn’t cut straight. Now, it doesn’t even work. I think I didn’t have it for 6 months when it stopped working. Well, sometimes it works when I slam it against a concrete surface, hard. So if you have one project you need a jigsaw for, but you don’t need super accurate cuts, this would be fine. It’s $20 ...

Magnogrip Tape Holder ... A great concept, poorly implemented

Magnogrip Tape Holder ... A great concept, poorly implemented

01-19-2013 05:39 AM by PASs | 9 comments »

NEW INFORMATION IN COMMENTS SECTION…I purchased the Magnogrip Quick Snap Magnetic Tape Measure Holder a few weeks ago.I loved the concept, a quick release for my tape measure.I constantly fight with my tape measures, fumbling to hook them on my belt or pocket, or cussing the tape pouch/holder on my tool belts. So the possibility of just snapping in on was a big draw. And at less than $10 at Home Depot I figured I’d give it a try. I tried a couple of tape measures on the tape h...

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

01-12-2014 02:24 AM by tturner | 6 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

Love this jig...Hate the dust storm

04-10-2015 01:22 AM by DKV | 8 comments »

I have never done dovetails upside down with a router table but it works great. You can see Roger Gifkin demonstrating the jig on youtube. I have used the jig twice so far. Both results came out with a tight perfect fit. Make sure your stock is square and flat. Follow the easy directions and be happy. This is a five star review…except for the dust storm which is caused by doing your dovetails on a router table. Mask and safety glasses are a must. As you lean over the jig to guide the wo...

I have been trying you use hand tools more in the shop. I have to admit, I’m all about the power tools. I have a bunch of friends on here that use and talk about hand-planes in great detail. I have had these 3 for a while now and feel comfortable enough to comment on them. Reading past posts from fellow Lumberjocks I knew about planes needing a quick sharpening out of box being required. I tested all 3 of these first before sharpening. I sharpened up to 6000 grit after that. I have ...

Handy to have

Handy to have

Although I think a lot of Kregs products are exspensive they are extremely well made and they are made for the beginner in mind. I purchased this jig because I wanted to put shelf pin holes in an existing cabinet and it worked awesome, I especially like the simplicity of the jig. The Shelf Pin Jig also includes a dual-position, adjustable fence for custom hole placement, a locating pin for quick and accurate spacing reference, a jig extender that lets you connect multiple Shelf Pin Jigs...

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

Vega Pro 50 Fence - Long winded

08-14-2015 12:30 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 6 comments »

I needed to increase the cutting capacity of my table saw and last fall I bought a Vega Pro 50 fence system. I originally wanted to get a Biesemeyer, but I really need both my legs and both my arms. My table saw is a Rigid 2424. I wanted to use the fence for a while before writing a review. I have put it through the paces and the following is my take on the fence. Aftermarket fences can be really expensive and may require a good amount of modifications to your table saw. That was not ...

Wood Magazine 3 in 1 bed for all ages -plan

Wood Magazine 3 in 1 bed for all ages -plan

10-13-2015 04:12 PM by Michigander | 6 comments »

I have completed the crib for my first grandson made to the Wood Magazine 3 in 1 crib plans. The plan for the bed itself was well done except it calls for using connector bolts and barrel nut system made by Products America. These are long bolts with a 1/4-20 thread that gets screwed into these little barrel nuts. The good news is I got 6 of the 8 nuts and bolts assembled which took over 3 hours of fiddling in the shop. The last 2 absolutely refuse to assemble. I had my son in law help me and...
