How to clean your shop(and other places too)I have the blessed opportunity to use a very good friend’s shop whenever I want. There are two really good things about working there: 1) He has sattellite radio piped in. That means I can listen to 50’s music all day long. He was listening to it before I got there so there’s no battle on what station to set it on. He also likes gospel music from time to time which I also enjoy. A great environment, and a very gracious friend to...

Laguna LT16 HD review-from unpack to.....

Laguna LT16 HD review-from unpack to.....

01-29-2014 05:03 PM by Hartworks | 7 comments »

I am new to Lumberjocks and wanted to share information regarding this bandsaw because I found only a few posts on the model when I was doing my research and decision making. May I start with John Carrasco at Laguna Tools. I contacted him regarding a demo model and was going to initially purchase a LT16 3000 series. Then I did some looking around and thought I was going to change to the LT14SUV. You see the LT14SUV has resaw capacity of 14” and a 3HP motor, the LT16 3000 series ha...

Everything I wanted in a digital caliper

Everything I wanted in a digital caliper

04-14-2015 04:12 AM by Rick M. | 15 comments »

Sold by the same folks who sell the Accuremote digital inclinometer. I chose the IP54 after watching a thorough review on Youtube by Gadget Class. Inside the retail box was a decent plastic case that held the caliper, two batteries, the instructions, and a random piece of brown waxed paper (no idea why that was in there) but it was 0.004” thick. Both batteries were good. The plastic case that came with mine is slightly different than the picture on Amazon. Of course I set out to meas...

Poor Bit Ruins a Nice Jig

Poor Bit Ruins a Nice Jig

05-21-2015 05:37 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I have used large acrylic shelf pin drilling jigs in the past, which worked fine. Some models are actually too big to fit in an existing cabinet, so the small size of this unit was appealing. After all you can use the index pin and cut as many holes as you need. The plastic template itself works fine. It is well thought out, and has some nice features. The “clamping zone” should be longer, because the clamps sometimes interfere with the drilling operation. The indexing pin...

BeadLOCK system

BeadLOCK system

02-29-2008 12:51 AM by jerry118 | 8 comments »

The tool itself consists of a drill guide which produces overlaping holes in the parts to be joined. The set that I used is by the origonal manufacturer. I believe the system is now owned by Rockler, so some of the comments that I make may no longer be valid.The chief problem I encountered was the fact that with the knobs used for tightening the guide in the origonal or secondary position are too small to adequately tighten by hand. If the secondary position is not adequately torqued, the gui...

skil 10 in compound miter saw

skil 10 in compound miter saw

03-23-2009 03:38 AM by kosta | 4 comments »

this miter saw is a very nice saw and has a lot of features you would find on a bigger saw. The bevel adjustment is a handle you turn and the saw becomes loose to turn to the left it is only a single bevel saw but it does go 49’ in each direction for miters. It also has the most common angles for crwn molding marked so they are easy to find. I bought my saw for $100 so it not cheap but aint $1300 like the kapex is I take it on jobs with me all the time so this saw can take a beating. Th...

“This is awesome,” said host John Palanca, on an episode of DIY Network’s “Under Construction.” “It’s a great concept, great idea that is well thought out by a carpenter. Half the job on a jobsite is setting up and this is already set up for you.”

Another Ridgid DP1550 Review

Another Ridgid DP1550 Review

02-19-2011 06:59 AM by RandyMorter | 23 comments »

I ordered a Ridgid DB1550 Drill press from Amazon on 2/10/2011 and received it today, 2/18/2011. I paid the $332.22 amount which includes shipping. It was shipped by ABF freight. Home Depot had them on back order. They charge less but I would have had to pay $324 when taxes were added in at HD so it was only $8 more from Amazon. I got this DP because of 1) all of the good reviews it gets; 2) good luck with other Ridgid gear (especially my jointer and planer); 3) I’d seen them befo...

Nice Rack With a Few Small Problems

Nice Rack With a Few Small Problems

07-04-2011 12:55 AM by Jimi_C | 16 comments »

I just got done installing this and loading it up, so I thought I’d post a quick review. I saw Woodcraft had these on sale, and I was sick of having all my lumber on my basement floor, so I went and bought two. The instructions recommend a 4-6’ distance between racks, but I wanted to be able to store some shorter lumber on them so I spaced them every other stud, for ~ 32” and a total width of 8’. Each pair is rated at 100lbs per level, so this should give me the abili...
