Happy Camper No. 2,17685 (give or take a few)

02-09-2016 07:34 PM by Kelly | 5 comments »

I’ve primarily used this for mortised and tenoned frame corners for a kitchen (cuts done with the styles and rails at ninety degrees to the table) and splined corners (cuts done with frame corners at twenty-two and a half to forty-five degrees to the table). The results are, I am very pleased with my purchase. This is a lot of jig for the money. Just lifting it makes clear the fact it’s not a toy. I believe this tenon jig will provide years of service. Though another reviewe...

D-Way Beading and Point/Teardrop Tool Review

D-Way Beading and Point/Teardrop Tool Review

04-04-2016 01:52 PM by JimChrisawn | 2 comments »

I wanted to share a brief review and some information on a few tools from Dave at D-Way tools. Let me begin by saying I have in no way been compensated for this review. The tools I am reviewing were purchased by me at Daves website at full price. I would like to begin with the beading tools. Dave makes five sizes of beading tools. There are a lot of different beading tools on the market and I have tried a few of them, but these are standouts! They are used flute down and are made of excell...

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

Paste Wax (Car Wax)

08-22-2016 01:26 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

I thought about blogging this, but didn’t know if that was the right spot to put it. Here’s my shameless plug for using paste wax/car wax for woodworking! I am not particular to one brand over another. They all work quite well. The main thing that makes them good is the carnauba wax. This is a really tough wax that stays in place for a long(er) amount of time. I use car wax on my steel surfaces, such as my tablesaw, jointer, bandsaw, etc. This protects them from rust, and...

I loved it so much, I bought another one.

I loved it so much, I bought another one.

Ok, so maybe I didn’t buy the same saw. I was the previous owner of a 1.75hp 14/12. It was an awesome saw, but one day I went to rewire it to 220 and discovered that I had to rewire the whole saw (outlet and all) to 220. I was kinda eyeballing the new 14bx and that was it. I posted my saw on Craigslist and said, if it sells I upgrade, if not, I keep the 14/12. Well, it sold in about a week. So here I am today, unloading the new 2.5hp bx. I feel the same way about this saw as I did my...

My new branding iron

My new branding iron

12-01-2016 01:40 AM by BurlyBob | 11 comments »

I’d kicked this around for a while and after the wife gave me the green light I ordered a branding iron from Terry Desilets, Custom Branding irons. I’ve played with it a little and tonight gave it a work out. I really like the looks of my brand. After reading his instructions about the branding surface I’ll be doing a better job in the future. First off, flat smooth and clean, that means no varnish. One of the issues I ran into tonight. I branded a bunch of projects th...

I love this jointer

I love this jointer

01-21-2017 03:43 PM by Kelster58 | 7 comments »

I love this Grizzly Jointer. I have a small shop and the size of this machine is perfect. The spiral cutter – head is worth every penny. I gave 4 stars because, I requested the lift gate service. UPS Freight called me and scheduled an appointment at their convenience for delivery. I scheduled time off work to make the appointment time UPS Freight requested and then UPS Freight blew me off. No call, no notification, no call to reschedule, nothing. UPS freight never showed up. ...

this review was first posted in our LJ eMag, January 2010 Have you been inspired by the carvers’ projects here at LumberJocks.com, such as the work by Jordan, Mikelknot, and Mark Decou , to name a few?

Incredibly Straight, Incredible Value.

Incredibly Straight, Incredible Value.

05-05-2010 04:00 PM by deeznutz | 10 comments »

Well, the title just about says it all. I’ve been getting more in to hand tools (seems we all are) lately and the construction grade level and HD 12” combo square were just no longer straight enough. I needed an actually straight reference edge that I could trust and to be honest, was a bit skeptical of the price on these (~ $20 Shipped). After getting it, I can say I would highly recommend it. It’s the straightest tool in my little shop and gives me the confidence I nee...

Harbor freight bench top drill press

Harbor freight bench top drill press

02-09-2011 09:33 AM by adaughhetee | 9 comments »

For a cheap way to drill straight holes you can’t beat it. More for the hobby woodworker though. Unlike everything else I have bought from Harbor Freight assembly was very simple. My only complaint is the power. On the lowest speed(620rpm) I can stop the chuck in my hand. Although with a 1” forstner bit it will go right through oak/ walnut without any trouble. Anything bigger and you might as well give it up. But, for 69.99 then a 20% coupon I can’t complain. Just don&...

Great saw, upgrade fence ASAP!

Great saw, upgrade fence ASAP!

10-26-2011 02:45 PM by slickSqueegie | 8 comments »

ok, So I researched Table saws for a while before I settled on this one. The only problem I have with this saw is the fence. It is a two piece system and I hate trying to align it. They should offer a small tube of Loc-tite for this to keep them from loosening! Or just simply make a one piece rail system!! It is garbage.In its defense I will say that i am used to the uni-fence and that may cause a little hate towards this unit. Ok now that i got that out of the way, all in all I do reco...
