Plumb It exendable level

Plumb It exendable level

02-23-2011 12:02 PM by devann | 2 comments »

This is a review about a level I’ve been using for the last 15 years or so. The manufacture, called PlumbIt makes several models of aluminum levels that are capable of extending from about four feet to nearly twenty two feet in lentgh. The model I have, closed measures 63” and will extend to 13’ 10”. These are some pretty unique levels because the length of the level can be set anywhere within their operating range with just a sqeeze of the handle. This makes this a l...

Cuts Right Through Wood, Not Your Wallet

Cuts Right Through Wood, Not Your Wallet

08-01-2013 06:29 PM by lab7654 | 17 comments »

After I bought my R4512 (reviewed eventually…), I knew I needed a quality blade. I didn’t even bother trying the stock blade. After hearing only good things about the Irwin combo blade, I went out and got it. This blade truly lives up to all of the reviews. It crosscuts as good or better than my 60 tooth miter saw blade, even without a ZCI or sled. Ripping is a breeze, with glue-ready edges and no tearout. The one thing I have to force myself to remember is that the blade is a com...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

02-01-2014 03:30 AM by Jeff_in_LSMO | 5 comments »

Is it weird that the whole time I was using my new Veritas Cabinet Scraper I was singing Sophie B. Hawkins’ line, “Damn, I which I was your lover,” over and over in my head? I know where it started… sorry, I was distracted by my four year old, Jane, who apparently was turned down by a boy in class today and she is really sad… back to it… it started when I took my first pass. Shhhhwit, a perfect shaving. “Damn,” the damn of amazement, not the ...

Woodpecker's 6" Carpenter's Square

Woodpecker's 6" Carpenter's Square

09-18-2014 04:15 PM by timbertailor | 14 comments »

Not much you can say about any Carpenter’s Square. They have a wealth of uses every day and is probably everyone’s most used measurement and\or layout tool. So why buy the offering from Woodpecker's? For one, it has a unique design that allows the square to sit on its base without falling over. Make’s checking 90 and 45 degree angles a snap. This feature also gives the tool heft which comes in handy. The quality of the materials insures accuracy of the tool over the...

Fantastic Storage Chest -- Saves Me LOTS of Time

Fantastic Storage Chest -- Saves Me LOTS of Time

02-29-2008 08:51 AM by Hawgnutz | 4 comments »

Boy, where was this years ago?!? I would give it 6 stars if I could! It is deep enough to hold my cordless drill, circular saw, pneumatic nailers, tool bags, planes, nails, screws, spare batterys and still have room for a little more. (It holds LOTS of tools!) Plus it has a wheel that allows me to move it from garage to pickup to site. Now, when I have a large project that will take a couple of days, I can store all my tools in one place until I complete that job! Woo Hoo! The top ha...

new General drill press

new General drill press

04-02-2009 03:01 AM by bern92 | 12 comments »

this was my christmas gift(from me to me). I was looking to buy a drill press for a long time. It’s a nice tool, cast iron head and base and it’s heavy so it’s stable. The motor is 3/4HP and has enough power for me. It is made by General so like all the tools they do it is perfect…..

Diamond sharpening Kit

Diamond sharpening Kit

02-24-2011 04:35 PM by dbray45 | 6 comments »

This kit came with 4 “stones” – actually 4 steel plates. The extra course is a little smoother than road surface. When I used this to flatten my 8000 grit water stone, I found that my flattening stone has been worn to a point that is no longer flat. When you get these, sharpen a piece of steel or something hard where you are not looking for that pristine mirror finish. I made a blade for a radius plane – thank Mads for this, the blade is now done – and went...

What can you expect from a 120$ table saw?

What can you expect from a 120$ table saw?

04-02-2012 09:05 PM by lumberjoe | 28 comments »

Some call it cheap crap, I say “challenge accepted” After many years of refinishing old tag sale furniture, I decided I’d like to do woodworking. I got some books, then got some tools. I wasn’t sold on the idea that I would be good at it or even like it, so I wanted my initial investment to be fairly small. Around Christmas time, Home Depot had this bad larry on sale for a little over 100$. I could have picked up something used and much nicer for short dough, but s...

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

09-22-2012 12:31 AM by ProDrawerCom | 8 comments »

9-21-2012: Other reviews on LumberJocks convinced me that the far less expensive version at Home Depot (the Ridgid brand) was the same product as the yellow MagSwitch. I’m in the middle of rough cutting plywood to build cabinets for my kitchen. Always wanted to try one of these because I believe in feather boards but just never get around to cutting some from wood. I really need them now. And I really need two because I’m cutting big stuff. I usually don’t ask clerks if they have a certain pr...

So-So Entry-Level Bandsaw

So-So Entry-Level Bandsaw

02-29-2008 09:17 AM by Hawgnutz | 6 comments »

This bandsaw looked really good on paper with bearing guides, 7” resaw capability, and “adjustable” fence. Well, after all that hype dissapeared, it turned out to be only a so-so machine! I am dissapointed and wished i had saved my money and bought a Jet, Rikkon, or even a Grizzly! Within 4 months of very sporadic use, one of the bearings siezed on me. (Thank God I bought the extended warranty!) The service tech ordered set for me, but it still has a funny sound when ...
