Great idea - does not execute well

Great idea - does not execute well

03-29-2012 02:30 AM by GrandsonOfRue | 9 comments »

(note: In response to some of the comments…. I do realize that for some these will work quite well. I too have seen reviews of items I was very pleased with though the reviewer was not. For those of you who these work well for, I would love for you to demonstrate because I really hoped they would work. I appreciate your positive findings. I also want to be clear that I in no way am dissing Rockler. I continue to buy many things from them. My decision not to return them had nothing...

Better Pegboard hooks

Better Pegboard hooks

09-16-2012 06:07 PM by Grumpymike | 6 comments »

Have you ever pulled a tool off of your pegboard and had the wire hanger go rattling down to the bench or even worse behind the bench to the floor … Grrrr …. Talon Hooks has a product that I tried and after using them I bought more to fill up my new storage cabinet.These little sleepers have been hiding for a while; I discovered them on the internet while searching for a better way to hang my tools.These hooks are designed for 1/4” pegboard, they secure on the board with a n...

Veritas Low-Angle Jack disappointment :(

Veritas Low-Angle Jack disappointment :(

01-31-2013 01:22 AM by Willeh | 55 comments »

I’ve been looking for a new jack plane to replace the turn of the century Stanley 5 1/2 that i’ve been working with for a long while (For sale btw, if anyone is interested).. Finally decided on the Veritas Low Angle Jack.. Basically the options were the LN 62, the Veritas Low-angle jack, a LN #5 or a wood river #5. I didn’t love the price of the LN #5 and, while i’m happy with my other wood river, I wanted to try one of the low-angle jacks since so many people rave ...

This review is for the Aqua Coat clear grain filler. http://aquacoat.com/products/clear-grain-filler They also make a clear wood putty/filler I haven’t tried. Right now this stuff is $17.95 for a pint. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this stuff. I’m on my second can now. I’ve used it on several tables made from oak and walnut. After getting crud embedded in the grain after finishing one too many times I finally started using a grain filler. I picked t...

You can make your SketchUp model dance

You can make your SketchUp model dance

07-25-2008 05:47 AM by kshipp | 8 comments »

I just got this a few days ago and I love it already. That being said I should probably start with a description before I get questions about how many horsepower this router has or why the sander has a blue light on it. This is a navigation device that is used for 3D graphics programs. I have seen people at work use similar devices but they actually do CAD for a living. I only do SketchUp for fun but this device is amazing. When you move the knob it is exactly like you are moving the objec...

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

Make screw caps in whatever species you need!

03-27-2009 04:08 AM by handi | 6 comments »

If you are used to using FastCaps to cover screws on your cabinets, at some point you have needed some in a special color or wood species. Now you can make your own! FastCap is now offering their Custom Color Punch Kit. The kit includes a heavy duty hole punch, double sided tape, and their Flushmount drill bit. Start by applying the tape to the back of the material you want to use as your cap. With a firm grip on the punch, you can make as many caps as needed, punching through the veneer. ...

Good for a Black & Decker

Good for a Black & Decker

01-19-2010 10:39 PM by funchuck | 9 comments »

This was my first real drill. I know Black & Decker gets a lot of knocks here, but it really wasn’t too bad a drill. I’ve had this drill for probably 5 years. I’ve done a lot of home improvements with it. This includes: Installation of a new garage door opener Putting up a patio lattice made of all pressure treated lumber (6×8s, 4×8x, 4×4s, 2×6s) Various wood working projects (mostly shelves and storage). I have used it to drill 3...

PSI Sharpening System

PSI Sharpening System

02-21-2011 03:49 AM by Moby | 2 comments »

I just recently received this sharpening system to put an edge on my dull turning tools. It does a good job but it could be better. Since the system is 8” in diameter sometimes the lathe bed can get in the way of sharpening the tools, a 9” or 10” version could give it some more room. Other than that it is a great system and you can’t beat it for around $40.
