A lovingly assembled reproduction of a 100-year old compendium on N. American species

A lovingly assembled reproduction of a 100-year old compendium on N. American species

For their 25th anniversary in operation, book publisher TASCHEN put out 150 special editions of mostly art-based books spread across a wide array of periods and genres. There’s a book on artwork from ancient Egypt, others collecting the works of traditional favorites (Matisse, Van Gogh, Monet). There are books on modern artists (Escher, Pollock), books on beautiful destinations, and books on artistic movements (Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Dadaism). There are several books on the...

I have had and used this very much and so far i am satasfied with it but the switch that comes with it broke so i just wired a light switch to it. the bed is made of square steel tubing and seems to have a decent but tolerable amount of vibration. only one compliant and that is when you tighten the tailstock the headstock will bend upwards

Really not much to say other then excellent. After using the saw all day i keep asking my self why i waited so long. Assembly was simple just took my time and rechecked everything as i went. Only downside during assembly was i had to run out and get a tap for rear fence rail there was a ton of paint in the threads . Over all it took me about 4hours to put together with a helper. Once i got it dialed in I put it right to work minus one hicup. (see my freud fussion review) We ran a total of...

Review of "How to Make Wooden Farm Toys" By Kurtis Foote

Review of "How to Make Wooden Farm Toys" By Kurtis Foote

09-27-2012 03:57 AM by grace123 | 2 comments »

I used the plans created by Kurtis Foote to make the combine. The plans are very simple to use. The diagrams are accurate. The instructions are clear. I had no trouble making the combine with two different heads. One is a bean cutter head and the other is a corn chopper head. I highly recommend these plans for anyone desiring to make a set of our farm toys. The skid loader, tractor and disc attachment are realistic

Extremely Useful Addition To My Bench

Extremely Useful Addition To My Bench

02-08-2013 08:20 PM by BigDawg | 1 comment »

I purchased a set a few months ago, so I figured I’d post a quick review. Hope it helps others decide if these are for them. Initially, I honestly thought I wouldn’t like these. My first impression was that they seemed cool in a gadgety sort of way, but that they might be one of those things that fixes a problem that doesn’t exist. Boy was I wrong! The little plates that go under the holes are really easy to install and readily flip out of the way when needed. The fit of these...

Easy to use HVLP with great results

Easy to use HVLP with great results

02-06-2014 06:39 PM by VCF | 10 comments »

I haven’t had had a chance to use this product to its full potential yet but the the projects I have used it on so far have turned out great. I attached a couple of pics of my most resent project I used it on. The time it saved me was amazing. This is my first time owning a HVLP system and I’m VERY pleased. Prior to this I ether did everything by hand or used my compressor / spray gun. I am much happier with the results. You can find the system normally on sale for around $300. We...

Works Well with Only One Negative

Works Well with Only One Negative

I purchased Lee Valley’s new Veritas custom plane when it first became available. After messing around with it for a few days, here are my thoughts. 1) The plane is built well and looks a lot better than their old line of bench planes. It feels nice and heavy and is about the same weight as a Lie-Nielsen (LN) #5. I bought mine with the “medium” traditional tote in the back and the middle-sized knob in the front. This gives it the same feeling in the hand as old Stanley or...

Good Plane for the Money

Good Plane for the Money

01-09-2015 02:52 PM by mramseyISU | 3 comments »

I’ve had this plane for about 6 months now so I think that’s enough time using it to make up my mind. I picked this up on a trip to Rockler, I hadn’t planned on buying it but I had been wanting a No 4. Out of the box I justs tried it out on some white oak and with just a couple adjustments it was working great. When I did flatten the sole it took maybe a dozen passes on 220 sandpaper stuck down to my table say. Way less effort than any vintage stanley I’ve ever tuned u...

NEW VACUUM

NEW VACUUM

08-21-2008 07:09 PM by John Gray | 5 comments »

I purchased this vacuum about a month ago and it has been used ALOT. If has become a favorite tool, it’s so handy to use with the long hose. I also purchased the Ridgid Hepa filter – Model VF6000 which is washable. Filters 99.97% of particles as small as .3 mirons. Now the shop is much cleaner because the 22’ hose lets me go directly to the tool instead of having to move the big and cumbersome Craftsman around the shop, the Craftsman is now dedicated to the table saw unt...
