Good and fast

Good and fast

I picked up the 5-piece set of these from Lowes yesterday to drill holes to run wires through floor joists. I’ll be comparing these to the last ones I had which came in a catch-all bit kit I got for Christmas years ago (they sucked). The bits bored fast. I mean really fast. I’m not sure what difference in the design that makes them bore so quickly, but it definitely made the difference. I used the 5/8” to bore through the joists at a slight angle (since I didn’t...

Bad motor replaced with completely seized one.

Bad motor replaced with completely seized one.

This has been nothing but a $700 paperweight. The Sandflee is an expensive unit compared to the model the inventor in Canada sells. However its made of steel and looks more of a real shop fixture. So I bought it. The build looked good out of the box. Very simple metal box. What they do not tell you is you really need to mount this to a bench. The unit is not something you could move on and off the bench as the motor to box connection is not solid. They call it the “portable 18” drum san...

An excellent guide - even for a beginner

An excellent guide - even for a beginner

07-26-2011 09:06 PM by Jon Spelbring | 2 comments »

So, do you want to play in the yard with the big kids? Impress The Schwarz? Follow in the footsteps of St. Roy, or just be able to actually use that saw that grandpa left you? Then I would recommend this DVD highly. As a disclaimer, I’m no saw expert, and in fact, apart from my trusty dovetail saw, I haven’t had that much experience with other hand (panel) saws. I’ve never sharpened a saw before. So, look for a blog entry next week on how my first sharpening went. R...

Very handy workbench accessory

Very handy workbench accessory

10-05-2012 06:23 PM by Kreegan | 11 comments »

I purchased the Veritas Planing Stop from Lee Valley (http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=69837&cat=1,41637) about a month ago. I’d had a planing stop I made myself, but I managed to crack it, so I decided to give this one a try. The stop is about 10 in wide and a little over 1 in deep. It has 2 metal posts that fit into standard 3/4 in dog holes on your workbench. The posts slide along the bottom of the stop in a T track. I have dog holes in 2 patterns on my bench: para...

The $100 WS2000 or the $200 WS3000- What's the difference?

The $100 WS2000 or the $200 WS3000- What's the difference?

08-29-2013 01:35 AM by StumpyNubs | 17 comments »

I love me some sharp tools, and as an increasingly lazy woodworker, I looked high and low for the perfect way to get my dull tools back to work with minimal effort, time and of course, money. I think the Worksharp may just be the perfect fit! Not only is it fast and easy to use, but it offers a tremendous bang for your buck. The only problem is, which model to choose? The WS2000 is about $100, while the WS3000 is twice the price. Is it twice the machine? Can a budget conscious woodworker get ...

What a Dream... I love this Plane!

What a Dream... I love this Plane!

02-29-2008 07:28 PM by Chris | 7 comments »

This plane is my first foray into the world of Lie-Nielsen. WOW! I am impressed; we get so very used to mediocre products that when we get our hands on products with this level of craftsmanship it simply blows you away. Don’t get me wrong, I love my old planes. However, I hated using the block planes I had picked up here and there. They were just too difficult to use accurately. This plane was ready to go straight out of the box. The sole is, as far as I can tell, perfectly flat and the ...

Powerful Disk Sander

Powerful Disk Sander

10-09-2009 05:57 PM by FatScratch | 9 comments »

I received this disk sander about 9 months ago. I really didn’t think it was a necessary addition to my small hobbyist shop, but it was a gift. The buyer thought it would be a necessity for my hobby and I didn’t have the heart to exchange it. It has come in handy many times since I got it. The sander was nicely packaged in a square box which was very difficult to get my hands around, coupled with the fact that this thing is very heavy. This sander weighs in at about 100lbs. It t...

milescraft feather board

milescraft feather board

02-02-2010 09:59 PM by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft fetherboard. Most people make their own feather boards but I use this feather board from milescraft and it works pretty good. The problem with the feather boards that people make is that its really hard to adjust them to different tools. This feather board is adjustable to 2 different size miter slots. You can adjust the feather board to work on most cuts. You can use this feather board on a router table, tablesaw, and a bandsaw.

None slider 5 star

None slider 5 star

03-08-2011 10:48 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 2 comments »

After a few disasters with sub $200 sliders and a dual rail miter sled, I decided to grab one of these none sliders. And @ $120, this made it impossible to resist for too long.I blew the sales they had on Amazon and also the sales they had on-line at sears but got lucky in store deal. So I grabbed it. Any way, right out of box the accuracy was an impressive within 0.1 in all aspects.Not bad at all but not good enough for a calibration fanatic like myself. So after an hour or so of tweaks, ...
