First dedicated rip blade

First dedicated rip blade

687 days ago by dnick | 14 comments »

After all these years, I finally bought a rip blade, when I saw a good deal on Amazon. Always used combination blades before. What I really liked about the Freud LU87R010 was the thin kerf & the flat tooth grind. Always wanted flat tooth for grooves & spine joints. Blade was great. I ripped some soft Maple & Mahogony & didn’t have to joint the edges. Then when installing the blade, after maybe 20 rips, I just happened to notice the tooth you see in the photo, because it ...

Excellent Wood Cleaner

Excellent Wood Cleaner

191 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 17 comments »

Not a great tale of restoration as others in LJs post, but a review that confirms what others told me: “BAR KEEPERS FRIEND” is a very capable cleaner for wood tools. In this case, of Stanley No. 32 rule that had certainly seen better aesthetic days. As shown above, the ruler was not very legible when I got it. Here’s the rule from a farther distance. I posted a couple pictures of my flea market find on the Marking and Measuring thread and a discussion ensued re: wa...

Great addition to older bar clamps!

Great addition to older bar clamps!

2371 days ago by Hawgnutz | 0 comments »

If you have ever been frustrated by bar clamps that just don’t want to stand up straight, then these are for you! My bar clamps are old style with skinny feet and no padding between the clamp and the wood. Clamping blocks take care of the contact with your project, but we all have enough to worry about when gluingup not to have to worry about the clamps toppling over! These clamp feet/pads take cxare of that problem. These make glue-ups almost easy! These clamp pads are designe...

Tormek T7 Sharpening System

Tormek T7 Sharpening System

2164 days ago by coloradoclimber | 17 comments »

Well, it was sharpening time again this weekend, chisels, plane irons, kitchen knives, pocket knives, scissors, turning gouges and chisels, anything else I could find that had an edge that needed sharpening. I’ve hand sharpened all of my knives and tools using wet, dry, oil, and diamond stones for the last 20 years. Bench stones works pretty well and I’m able to get shaving quality edges every time. So why change? Well, because hand sharpening takes a long time. I keep ad...

Carving or Chiseling Made Easier

Carving or Chiseling Made Easier

1124 days ago by Grumpy | 1 comment »

I recently bought the Arbortech “power Chisel Attachment”. This was after I noticed the application of a similar tool used by Trifern on his blog on hollow turning. http://lumberjocks.com/trifern/blog/24331Here is a link to the Arbortech website.http://www.arbortech.com.au/view/woodworking-onlinestore/powerchisel-productsI purchased the unit from Carb-A-Tec in Sydney, $179 AU (about $195 US)http://www.carbatec.com.au/arbortech-power-chisel-attachment_c13131(I have no affiliation w...

I'll rate it a 4 out of 5 due to the blade to miter slot adjustment.

I'll rate it a 4 out of 5 due to the blade to miter slot adjustment.

860 days ago by WillMat | 6 comments »

First, I will rate the saw, and I rate it a 4 out of 5, over the difficulty of aligning the blade to the miter slots. The manual shows a mechanism using set screws to adjust the trunnion, from underneath the table, at the front of the saw. However, the saw does not have this feature, and when you look at the parts diagram, it is not there either. To align the blade to the miter slot, which I had to do, as mine was 0.010” out, I had to add shims under the rear lift rod. The trunnion p...

dustcutter II dust collection system paired up with ridgid TS3650

dustcutter II dust collection system paired up with ridgid TS3650

357 days ago by yrob | 3 comments »

I have a small shop and use a Ridgid TS3650 contractor style table saw. Dust collection has always been a problem. I have tried enclosing the saw with hardboard pieces in the past but this makes it impossible to tilt your blade as the motor sticks out. I recentlly bought this product, the Dustcutter II from Woodcraft. It is basically a dust bag shaped like a funnel with a 2 1/4” port at the end. It attaches to the table saw from the inside by velcro. The installation guide say...

Gorilla Tape

I won a 2nd prize in Gorilla Glue Challenge. Winners received Gorilla Glue’s products and a Gorilla Glue t-shirt. Got a nice box of various Gorilla glues and a roll of tape. I’ve been using Gorilla Glue products for years, so it was a excellent prize. Peggy enjoys wearing the Gorilla tee-shirt too. Today I used the tape and want to share a handy use for them. My tile KILN needed an element changed . Kiln sits on the concrete floor of my back porch, It is a front loading ki...

Set of 8 Benjamin's Best HSS Lathe Chisel, good chisels, great price

Set of 8 Benjamin's Best HSS Lathe Chisel, good chisels, great price

1945 days ago by Chris Wright | 9 comments »

With our wood turning program growing here at the shop, we were able to get new equipment, and part of that were two sets of the 8 piece Benjamin’s Best HSS lathe chisels from PSI ($69.95). I had never heard of Benjamin’s Best before I started pen turning and looking through the PSI catalog. So when I saw a 8 piece set of HSS tools for $70 I was skeptical of the quality. When they arrived I inspected them and they all needed to be re-ground, not a big deal since we also got a n...
