I got this for my daughter from highlandwoodworking.com as she likes to help in the shop and will cover her ears with her hands everytime a power tool is turned on (very good). I want her to be able to help with jigsaw cuts and sanding and having the shopvac on while working with both so this is a must to have her focused on the work and not on the noise. The ear protection can be lengthened or shortened and the range can accommodate a 3-4 y/o on the short end and a small-medium adult on t...

Rockler corner caster - errr corner STOP blocks

Rockler corner caster - errr corner STOP blocks

Well I guess you get what you pay for. AT $16 one shouldn’t complain much but placed and a some what light cabinet you would think that they would work just a little better than they do. I got them because that would fit my application but I didn’t expect them to be as bad as they are. I can barely move the router table with them installed. I think that they are just torquing under and rubbing but the way they are made there isn’t much that could be done . Time to re-th...

It does what it is supposed to

I was in need of a drill press but I was short on funds, and after searching around here and other places I decided to go with this unit. Having been burned a couple times before with smaller power tools, I was a bit leery about buying anything big from Harbor Freight, but most of the reviews I saw were more or less favorable so I went for it. When I went to the store to buy it, it was on sale for $239 (reg price of $299) and the cashier let me use my 20% off coupon (which I am pretty sure ...

 Laguna LT18 3000 Bandsaw - Very Solid Saw

Laguna LT18 3000 Bandsaw - Very Solid Saw

01-07-2014 02:59 AM by Woodwrestler | 15 comments »

I have read so many reviews trashing Laguna that I had a hard time buying one of their tools. However, after doing a ton of research I ended up buying the LT18 3000. I did a ton of sifting through various options. Almost bought a Rikon 18, Minimax S45 ( just waiting to hear the barrage of you should have bought the MM16 the mystical beast of all bandsaws ) and also took a hard look at the Felder N4400. Anyway, the wife liked the Laguna we saw at Woodcraft and that always makes things easi...

General Finishes Java Gel

General Finishes Java Gel

I really liked how this stain applied. It is thick like pudding and doesn’t smell real bad either. Application is straight forward. You can use a rag, brush, or any other applicator. In my use I went with a stain pad (basically a foam sponge wrapped in terry cloth). I put on a really thick coat, let it sit for about 5 minutes and wiped the excess off. I let the first coat dry over night and applied a second coat. Since I was staining maple it took awhile for me to get the hang of a...

SOMMERFELD 6 Piece Router Bit Set

SOMMERFELD 6 Piece Router Bit Set

06-21-2015 05:47 AM by MikeSpanky | 7 comments »

Never thought I’d be ordering such an expensive router bit set as this. That was until my wife and I began talking about new kitchen cabinets. I knew kitchen designs as well as methods for building them had changed since I last built a set for mom and dad over 25 years ago. It was when I began my research on YouTube that I saw how much things had changed. I had seen raised panel doors in the big box stores and loved the look. But to tackle A job like this I would have be out quite a bit...

Update:It was mentioned in a review I wrote about another tool that it took me 20 years before I wrote a review and that as far as he was concerned what I say doesn’t really count. So I thought I would update why it took so long to write my review. I have always been very happy with this tool. It’s done plenty of studs and joists and decks. Cut just great and runs like a champ. My only complaint arose the one time I do not have a table saw and I had to make some precision on a pro...

It's Super for a Reason

It's Super for a Reason

My purchase of the Super Dust Deputy was inspired by the results of using my [metal version] Dust Deputy and Dust Gorilla. I’m running a Jet four bagger (3 HP dust collector with after market one micron bags) and use it, instead of a vacuum, to clean my shop floor, and around equipment. Screws, nails, nuts, bolts, pieces of wood and even an occasional tool get picked up in the course of cleaning. Normally, everything is drawn through the impeller blades. When chips and other large...

Quality saw right out of the box

Quality saw right out of the box

I was replacing a Craftsman Miter saw for a better sliding version amd I stuck with Craftsman becaise the other saw was perfect until I stsrted working with wider boards and was tires off setting up the crosscut slet on my TS. Anyway I like this model for the following reasons..1. It was on sale and got this $300 saw for $207.2. Its a quick learning curve from owning a non sliding miter saw to a sliding model.3. The saw came with a 60 tooth blade that is great for hitting the ground runnin...

powermatic PM-701, works great for me

03-29-2016 02:39 PM by kennymac | 13 comments »

Here’s my very first review, it’s about time I started giving back on this site. I’m building a four drawer chest that I’m working on through the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop. Actually I’m building two chests, one in the class and the other one is a copy I’m making at home. This is a big step up for me, and I’m finding building the second one at home is requiring me to purchase some tools. Enter the powermatic PM701 mortiser. I was in need o...
