Quickley removes excess wood

Quickley removes excess wood

05-08-2010 04:42 AM by jerryo | 5 comments »

This plane fits in my hand like a glove and performs great. It is a wooden body plane with a thick iron which is very cambered. The iron was sharp right out of the box ready to use. The light weight of the plane has no adverse effects when planing a board. I tryed it out on a piece of wormy maple and it took thick scaloped shavings with ease planing diagonally to the grain. The planes main use is to remove large amounts of wood quickley. This will do the same job as a thickness planer, albeit...

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

I purchase the Bowlamp Master Set earlier this year because there was some case work and panel glue-ups I wanted to do during the fall season. While building this Mahogany Bookcase I used them on both the face frame and the shelf edging. I have found them to be of very high quality and workmanship and had only very miner issues with using them. The problems were all on my end and not that of the product itself.

Delta 22-590 13" planer

Delta 22-590 13" planer

02-11-2011 10:21 PM by ic3ss | 10 comments »

It seems this is the first LJ review of the new Delta 22-590 planer. Delta released this last summer, I believe, and I’ve only found a few reviews by people who’ve actually used the thing. Most of them on the web are just copy-and-paste of someone elses’ review. I wanted to save some money and buy a used planer, and after wasting my time and a lot of gas on a Craigslist deal-gone-bad for a used 22-580, I decided to buy new. This is the 22-590, it’s the update to the 22...

6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit

6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit

06-26-2011 04:33 AM by Raymond | 4 comments »

An odd find that actually works very well is this 6 Piece Pneumatic Scraper Kit i bought it with the idea to use it as a power chisel. I adaped some wood working chisels to work with this. It is very quiet yet has 3500 BPM and an air consumption of 4 cfm at 90. It is a nice compact unit and fits the hand well. I have used it to remove a great deal of wood that with a chisel and hammer would have taken much more time. Other features are built in regulator to vary the amount of force applied. F...

Just burned out my 12 year old green Bosch 5” ROS, and found myself in dire need of another to finish off edging a floor. Head full of “will I buy the cheapest one?/will I buy a decent one?” on the way to the tool shop. Still undecided I had a look at all on display.I explained that I wanted something with a dual personality, something that would breeze through floor edging when required, yet show a bit of restraint for sanding cabinets. Having discounted the Bosch, Makita, ...

This review is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details) Our Workshop by Temple Thorold“Being A Practical Guide to the Amateur In The Art of Carpentry & Joinery” This is another of the classics, written pre-1900. I find these books fascinating, as they bring the wisdom of days gone past into the present and for the most part are an excellent resource for woodworkers wanting to learn more about ...

Ok, I have about two weeks under my belt with the Eye Fi card and I don’t understand why I didn’t buy it sooner. Anyway, here is how I use it. The Eye Fi is in my Canon G9 which I use primarly for most my pix. The shots are automatically uploaded to both my desktop HP pc and to my Samsung tablet. I also have my tablet setup to automatically upload all pix to Google+. There is no limit to the number of photos you can upload to Google+.I use the tablet primarily to upload pix (LJs as an exam...

Combo model # CLPK27-120Driver model # PS30BImpact model # PS40B12 volt lithium ion batteries. 30 minute charger. I have been using these for the past 3 days in my day job and in the shop. No problems at all. The main reason I went with these as they are lighter than the 18v combo sets. Here is my video review. Pros:lightcheapstrongLED lightbattery indicator on impact Cons:none so far

It works great and won't bug anyone upstairs

It works great and won't bug anyone upstairs

TL;DR – would recommend. Quiet but not silent. Works for driving 18GA brads and blowing off parts of the shop. Great value. I live in San Francisco in an 1897 built victorian. While I’m fortunate enough to have some shop space what is officially a ‘storage’ area, the building has little insulation and all the bones are huge timbers that transmit sound and vibration like crazy. As such, my first (mis)adventure in getting a PC pancake compressor quickly led to complai...

I always loose tape measures. I buy another and work really hard to keep it in the same place then loose it. I dont know how its possible all the time. So i decided to go to harbor freight and buy a few of these then buy 1 good one and keep it in a special location (pain in the butt). I just use these for rough cutting and measuring stock. i dont use this if its under 1”. I work as an engineer as we use metric at work. I love having this thing at work. No one will ever steal it becau...
