UPDATE: I end up returning it, due to manufacture’s defect . The sander pad was scratched and had dents in it. The second is way worse.More vibration than the first one, and way louder. I shouldn’t even return it in the first place. ——————————————————————————————————&#...

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

Shop Fox midi lathe, Seems to be a winner

11-09-2010 05:06 PM by jred | 5 comments »

My wife spoke words to me recently that I thought I’d never hear (at least not on her own volition). She told me that I should get a lathe! What a woman! I have been looking at “midi” sized lathes for a long time and really like the jet 12×20 I used at a woodcraft class. Two problems: There has not been a reasonably priced used Jet lathe go up for sale in the entire state in over six months (I’ve checked Craigslist and Ebay regularly). Second problem: new lathe...

Keeping it clean - aprons in the shop

Keeping it clean - aprons in the shop

07-26-2011 06:05 AM by coloradoclimber | 3 comments »

Like most of you guys and gals, when I get a chance to run out into the shop off I skedaddle. If I do think ahead I change into my grubby jeans and tee shirt, if I don’t think ahead I start working in whatever good clothes I’m wearing. And probably like most of you when my hands get dirty, or if I get glue on my fingers, or finish, or whatever, I just wipe them on my jeans, or shirt tail, whatever piece of cloth that is handy. Not Anymore !!! No more tracking glue and shavin...

Last weekend i found there was a sawmill right in my backyard, literally a few miles away. i went to check it out and somehow returned with over a 100 bf of cherry, poplar and maple. mostly skip planed on one side and one edge jointed. The owner chris was very friendly and took care of me letting me choose my wood.they are a small operation but have high quality wood at good prices. They carry cherry, walnut, maple, poplar,cypress and a lot more. apparently what chriscan not get locally h...

Review of the Woodcraft Anti Kickback Safety Rollers

Review of the Woodcraft Anti Kickback Safety Rollers

02-11-2014 01:33 PM by steve_in_ohio | 16 comments »

I bought these rollers a couple of days ago because my table saw is old and it doesn’t have a riving knife and I don’t like to use the blade guard. Also I had problems when running long boards thru the table saw that they would try to move away from the fence, so I bought these rollers. I mounted these on my fence with a t-track instead of the rail that it is sold for these. After some simple assembly I started using these and I love them. They hold the wood down to the table and ...

Harbor Freight 23 Ga. Air Pinner

Harbor Freight 23 Ga. Air Pinner

04-25-2009 05:41 PM by Tim Scoville | 22 comments »

I have become rather pragmatic in the purchasing of some tools for my shop. Harbor Freight is very accessible for me and the cost of air tools from the big box stores seems out of proportion to what they do and what I can buy them for at HF. I am not not a power user of air nailers but expect I will use them more and more over time. Although the normal price for this is $24.99, I think I picked mine up on sale for $16.99. The pins I buy in packages of 6000 for about $4. I love these pinners s...

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

02-01-2010 11:09 PM by CharlieD | 11 comments »

Woodcraft has this combination on sale at a good price. I have assembled everything but have yet to use the router. I did turn it on and was impressed with the soft start feature. The plunge mechanism is smooth and works well. So far I’m impressed with the workmanship of the table and fence (nice and heavy) and everything fit together well. The installation instructions could easily be improved but I got through it without too much angst. However, I was missing parts. The flat...

With a little wooing, a true sweetheart #62

With a little wooing, a true sweetheart #62

11-10-2010 12:12 AM by JohnKaye | 3 comments »

I recently urgently needed a plane that would flatten 18” wide maple that tiger, ambrosia, spalting, some other undefined figure. My Stanley No. 7 was on a real tear(out) even with blade sharpening and Lee Valley couldn’t deliver the same day, especially on Sunday. So I went to my local Woodcraft and a No. 7 Lie Nielsen looked good except my discount coupon would not apply. Given I had a fully refundable trial period I opted for the #62. (Yes I read the reviews). In short, the pla...

Foot Savers

Foot Savers

07-26-2011 06:33 AM by coloradoclimber | 8 comments »

My shop space has a concrete floor. I’m ok with the concrete, it is easy to clean and easy to roll my tools around. But it is KILLER on my feet and back. I have flat feet, you know the kind that when you walk barefoot they make a sucking sound when you pick your feet up. The kind that when people see your foot prints in the sand they think the web footed monster from the black lagoon must have strolled by. And because of my feet after any full day in the shop my feet just ache, whi...

From Purgatory To Rebirth Zip Code TS

From Purgatory To Rebirth Zip Code TS

12-01-2011 05:47 PM by wookie | 8 comments »

Hey Jocks and Jockettes, Disclaimer: I gave this product a 2- star rating just based on the problems detailed below. After much drama, hand-wringing, and pure obsession, the 22124 Zip CodeTS is almost complete except for the outfeed table. It was purchased off of CL. The saw was still on the pallet with the steel cage on it. The seller brought two of them in a semi lot of stuff. He sells the stuff at a little store in a small town in southern IL. Very nice man. He wanted $600, no ...
