An excellent guide - even for a beginner

An excellent guide - even for a beginner

1131 days ago 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

694 days ago 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?

367 days ago 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!

2374 days ago 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

1786 days ago 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

1670 days ago 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

1271 days ago 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, ...

drill assesment

drill assesment

1131 days ago by grizzman | 9 comments »

I have had this drill for about 2 1/2 years and i want to now give my thoughts on this drill and how it has performed. first of all i will have to be truly honest about this and wont sugar coat this one bit. the drill out of the gate was a big disappointment, it had hardly any power, but it did have enough to do the small screws i was using at the time, but as time went on i became less and less happy with its performance and decided to take it in for repair, there were several issues, one,...

Heads up for Woodcraft CS...

1003 days ago by jeth | 9 comments »

Just wanting to give an enormous heads up to the folks at Woodcraft customer service dept. especially Sam ;) Not sure this is the right place to post but this doesn’t really come under any of the given forum topics and is a “review” of sorts so.. A few weeks back I placed an online order with Woodcraft to take advantage of the cut price on Woodriver planes, I ordered a No.4 and also a wood thread cutting kit.They got back to me saying they couldn’t charge my card. I...
