I used this plane for the first time today and I was very impressed. It is a big step up from the other planes I have been using. It has good heft to it and all of the parts were machined nice and didn’t requiure any filing.The sole was dead flat and the iron was thick and the back flat. I spent 5 minutes honing the iron to an 8000 grit water stone and took fine shavings in maple, walnut and cherry. I have never used a Lie-neilsen, Clifton orVeritas but with the way this performed IR...

It's Hip to be Square and this beauty is very Square.

It's Hip to be Square and this beauty is very Square.

Accurate layout is an essential basic component of woodworking. Marking accurately 90 degrees is essential in marking out any type of joinery and dressing timber (making it square on all four surfaces). A few weeks ago I received a long awaited hand made try square from Chris Vesper. Chris uses brass, stainless steel, and speciality timbers to produce try squares and sliding bevels. Avaliblity flucuates as they are made in limited production runs throughout the year. His try squares are av...

Mortiser Falls Short on Key Features

Mortiser Falls Short on Key Features

10-29-2011 01:21 AM by pintodeluxe | 13 comments »

When I first got this it was the best thing since fancy cut pickles. Since then (5 tables, 8 chairs and and an entertainment center later), I have had the chisel stuck in my workpiece more times than I can count. I can tell you why… it has no roller wheels or clamps to hold the workpiece tight against the fence. Thus when you try to remove the bit, it rocks the workpiece and binds the bit. Problem #2 : The hold down clamp rod does flex quite a bit. I think this could be solved w...

Woodstock International D4241 12" Cyclone Separator

Woodstock International D4241 12" Cyclone Separator

09-02-2012 01:18 PM by SirFatty | 21 comments »

A couple weeks ago I purchased the Porter Cable table saw. One of the features is the dust port sized for a shop vac, and it works really well with my Ridged vacuum. Time for a cyclone separator, since all my sawdust will end up in the shop vac and replacing filters can be costly. There are a lot of separators available, and the price range is fairly wide. I’ve been looking a the offerings from Rockler” and ””Oneida name just a couple. There is a decent review o...

Excellent customer service! Thanks Worksharp!

Much better than a utility knife.

I’ve had this for a while, but it hasn’t really gotten a workout until the past few days.I’m redoing my router table top and since my table saw is a bosch 4100 now, safely cutting a 4’x8’ sheet of laminate into manageable pieces isn’t feasible. Cutting the laminate with this tool is easy; I just made the necessary tick marks on the laminate sheet, laid a 4’ scrap of apple ply and ran the scoring tool along the apply ply with firm pressure several t...

Great heavy-duty corded drill

Great heavy-duty corded drill

07-14-2008 10:21 PM by sry | 7 comments »

(pic from the Milwaukee tools website)As I continue my home improvement adventures and transition into woodworking as well, it seems logical to try to share as much info as possible. So this review I guess is my official end to lurking and beginning of contributing to the community. My motivation for buying this drill was that I burned out my old Dewalt 3/8” drill trying to mix some thinset for tiling. The Dewalt drill was great, but clearly not geared for this kind of work. So it...

Quickley removes excess wood

Quickley removes excess wood

This plane fits in my hand like a glove and performs great. It is a wooden body plane with a thick iron which is very cambered. The iron was sharp right out of the box ready to use. The light weight of the plane has no adverse effects when planing a board. I tryed it out on a piece of wormy maple and it took thick scaloped shavings with ease planing diagonally to the grain. The planes main use is to remove large amounts of wood quickley. This will do the same job as a thickness planer, albeit...

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

I purchase the Bowlamp Master Set earlier this year because there was some case work and panel glue-ups I wanted to do during the fall season. While building this Mahogany Bookcase I used them on both the face frame and the shelf edging. I have found them to be of very high quality and workmanship and had only very miner issues with using them. The problems were all on my end and not that of the product itself.

Delta 22-590 13" planer

Delta 22-590 13" planer

02-11-2011 10:21 PM by ic3ss | 10 comments »

It seems this is the first LJ review of the new Delta 22-590 planer. Delta released this last summer, I believe, and I’ve only found a few reviews by people who’ve actually used the thing. Most of them on the web are just copy-and-paste of someone elses’ review. I wanted to save some money and buy a used planer, and after wasting my time and a lot of gas on a Craigslist deal-gone-bad for a used 22-580, I decided to buy new. This is the 22-590, it’s the update to the 22...
