Video Review of Hitachi's 2" Brad Nailer

Video Review of Hitachi's 2" Brad Nailer

02-10-2011 05:14 AM by Sailor | 5 comments »

Here is my review of a great little brad nailer that I have owned for over two years. Since this is a video, I was wondering if I should post it as a “video” blog post also? I figured I would ask so people wouldn’t think I was spamming or something.

Compact Air Die Grinder Kit

Compact Air Die Grinder Kit

06-26-2011 04:20 AM by Raymond | 0 comments »

I was looking for a die grinder, and came across this little one 1/4 and 1/8 collets. This is an outstanding little grinder for the money 14.99. Lots of torque. It did not bog down when using a power rasp to remove stock from a piece of oak. At 4 cfm at 90, and 21,000 rpm it has tons of power. Fits the hand well and does exactly what I want it to do. Fit and finish is great. Again no air fittings. Another Harbor Freight tool I would recommend.

Do not have high expectations!

Do not have high expectations!

I bought it, I guess it works but I am not happy with it. I still would rather “freehand” my blades! What do I expect for 13 bucks? Call me picky if ya want. When sharpening, I expect nothing less than perfection! And this little unit is far from it!

wixey digital angle cube

wixey digital angle cube

03-18-2012 11:11 PM by jpatte | 29 comments »

I bought this product because I was tired of assuming that the bevel scale on my table saw was correct. I was shocked to see just how bad it really was. All in all I’m impressed with the product, it has one job and it does it well. The only thing I have found is that when it gets cold, for instance when it sits in an unheated shop, it doesn’t always read true. This is easily fixed by zeroing it out on the table and checking the blade bevel again.

Johnson Carpenters Square Model CS-1

Johnson Carpenters Square Model CS-1

01-25-2013 03:20 PM by Dallas | 18 comments »

Yesterday I needed a carpenters square to lay out a large piece on some plywood. My old Empire square gave up the ghost about a year ago after being bent when something heavy, (My Boot with foot installed), landed on it. I went down to my trusty local True Value Hardware store to get a decent square. About the only choces they had were an Empire Drywall square, (Those aren’t even close to square), Empire Speed Squares and Steel 16X24” Johnsons Carpenters squares. I compar...

Odies oil for Instruments

Odies oil for Instruments

07-04-2013 09:39 PM by GibsonWoodworking | 1 comment »

I have been using odies oil now for a few months and I am sold on it. I actually have all of the odies products and they are all wonderful and worth trying. The interesting thing about odies is that all the different products and designed to work together, meaning you can basically customize the finish to get the result you want.I have tried all the traditional instrument finishes, Nitro Lacquer, Tru Oil, Shellac, and Odies is by far the easiest to get a great finish with…. and you don&...

Jointer Blades from Infinity Cutting Tools

Jointer Blades from Infinity Cutting Tools

03-17-2015 07:25 PM by frosty50 | 5 comments »

I was very impressed with Infinity Cutting Tools customer service. I ordered a set of new blades for my jointer as they were in desperate need of replacing. My son had used the jointer and the results were several nicks in the blade at least 1/16” in depth. My local sharpening shop recommended replacement do to the damage. I ordered them on-line and Infinity processed the order within a day and I received them through the mail within the allotted time. I was excited to get back to the s...

Rockler 3-Piece Silicone Glue Application Kit

Rockler 3-Piece Silicone Glue Application Kit

05-20-2015 04:19 AM by B4B | 7 comments »

I picked this up on a whim. I was looking for an ink roller, or glue roller, and couldn’t find either at a local woodworking supply shop. I did find this gem and for $15 I figured I’d give it a try. I’ve used it a couple times now, and both times I intentionally left the glue dry on the brush/applicator/tray and it came off as advertised. As for longevity, only time will tell.

They are finally here...

They are finally here...

07-01-2015 11:15 PM by DKV | 18 comments »

7/1/2015 – I will clean them up and start reviewing them tonight or tomorrow. All I know right now is they are very oily and the tips are covered in plastic. They will be rated 1 star until I find out different. More later… 7/2/2015 – Just got done testing 4 bits. Each bit was used to drill 5 holes. When the holes were measured each was small by 1/128-1/256. The dial calipers I used also come from Lee Valley. Since a woodshop is not a machine shop I am totally happy with ...

Grizzly G0555LX - 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Love it

Grizzly G0555LX - 14" Deluxe Bandsaw - Love it

08-14-2015 12:54 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 8 comments »

I bought this bandsaw this past spring. I also bought the riser block to obtain a 12” cutting capacity.I really like this saw, it has plenty of power, runs smooth with no vibration. Fit an finish was on the mark and assembly was straight forward. I did have to add shims to the riser block, other than that is has been performing well for me. It has cut everything I have asked it to (and some I didn’t ….. 9 stiches right index finger) from mdf to plywood to oak and I am su...
