After my first impressions post which many of you confused with my over all judging of the tool I could wait and more. I grabbed some Walnut and started to make a box. I deiced to not do anything elaborate and use no layout tools but my pencil a 2ft ruler and this little guy.First off I used the triangle to set my saw blade. I put it up on the table and cranked my blade into 45 degrees up againest the triangle. I then put on a digital angle reader and it was dead at 45.I then cut all my parts...

Freud Random Orbit Sanding Disks Go the Distance

Freud Random Orbit Sanding Disks Go the Distance

04-06-2012 08:32 AM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Home Depot switched from Norton 3X to Freud abrasive products. I have tried the 120 grit and 150 grit 5” hook and loop disks, and they work very well. The ceramic blend of abrasives keeps cutting upwards of an hour of continuous sanding. I change them out of habbit, but they look like new and are still making sawdust. I didn’t have any disks come loose from either my Bosch or Dewalt sanders. The disks do not load up with dust like some brands. Cost is cheap – a 50 coun...

A solid, quiet performer

A solid, quiet performer

Update 2/3/13- Still like the product. Sears sells tons of accessories at reasonable prices. I still haven’t found any downside to the vacuum. Highly rocommend## About 4 years ago, I bought a Shopvac from Lowes. I cant remember the specs, but it was 10 gallons or so and supposedly 4-5 HP. They were selling them on Black Friday for $40. I actually like the vacuum pretty well and felt it was a good value. So when Lowes had the same vac on sale the following year, I bought a...

Veritas Brass Bench Dogs

Veritas Brass Bench Dogs

02-07-2013 02:42 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

I have only used these dogs for a couple of days and so far I am very impressed. I was one of those that said, bahhha I don’t need to spend $30 bucks on something I can make out of wood. But, I wanted to add some bling to my bench and reward myself for accomplishing my bench build. What sold me was going to Highland Woodworking, opening a box and inspecting a pair of these dogs and feeling the gripping face. There is a texture there that is not entirely apparent by looking at them. Besi...

Ready to carve a dragon?

Ready to carve a dragon?

02-06-2014 01:16 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 3 comments »

I want to start out by thanking Tom for writing the books he has written. This is one of two books from Tom Wolfe that I own, the other being Tom Wolfe carves Wizards, imagine that. Tom has written over 50 books, and from what I’ve read and seen in the two I have, I’ll be buying more in the future. If any of you out there know Mr. Wolfe personally, tell him I said thanks.Part of what got me interested in this book is that I love fantasy creatures. Dragons, Wizards, Elves, etc....

Laguna Tools 14/12 initial review.

Laguna Tools 14/12 initial review.

09-26-2014 09:50 PM by PatrickB | 17 comments »

Hello,This is my initial review of the Laguna 14/12 bandsaw. I earlier owned the Grizzly G0555 Extreme which I sold. I pondered getting another Grizzly and found the Laguna on sale at Rockler. BY the time I was done with replacing parts on the Grizzly to reach the Laguna as it came stock I was already over the sale price so that rapidly changed my mind. I remember my old Grizzly was always a little slow on cutting but I didn’t really have any issues with it. There are some changes to th...

A good quick finish for small projects.

A good quick finish for small projects.

05-30-2010 09:52 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 3 comments »

Ever wish you could spray a finish without the complexitys of compressors hoses and the clumsy time it takes to clean out the gun after?Ever wish you didnt have to go through the effort of the already mentioned set up just to spray something like a jewelry box or small items? Well this lacquer is for you!In a convenient spray can just shake it up and your good to go.You can even turn the tip of the nozzle to change the spray from horizontal to vertical.It sprays nice and even however it does...

Nail Puller gets great reviews but I couldn't make it live up to expectations

Nail Puller gets great reviews but I couldn't make it live up to expectations

11-04-2010 01:22 AM by Elizabeth | 11 comments »

I recently got a bunch of reclaimed wood which used to be a boat frame. At either end of most pieces are lots of nails, and I mean LOTS – about 20-30 in each piece. I wanted to try to reclaim all the wood so I looked around for a way to get these nails out, and found many good reviews of the Crescent 56 Nail Puller on Amazon. Nearly all the reviews said that this was the tool to get if you have to pull lots of nails, and described its use. It seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it item ...

Veritas Router Plane

Veritas Router Plane

03-02-2011 12:41 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 13 comments »

My wife recently surprised me with a Veritas Router Plane and Router Plane Fence. She knows that I am like a kid in a candy store when it comes to new tools. I have always wanted a router plane but only had one occasion to even use one, it was a class that Marc Spagnuolo (The Wood Whisperer) was giving at the Highland Hardware Store here in Atlanta. I loved the tool and immediately thought of a thousand used for it but only added it to my wish list. My wife always keeps a few tool mag...
