Wonderful Plane

Wonderful Plane

06-08-2010 05:25 AM by Bud | 12 comments »

A tear came to my eye when I unpackaged this plane. I love everything about it. It’s heavy and all machined surfaces are smooth and flat. Other than honing the iron and waxing the sole no tuning is required. This is a very versatile plane. The three bevel-up planes from Veritas all accept the same size iron making them interchangeable. This is especially relevant with bevel up planes because the effective cutting angle can be changed by altering the the bevel angle of the iron, ...

I was super excited when I got this at Rockler a couple weeks ago. They had a great sale spend $100 get $30 off and I thought this would be the perfect little add on to my newly restore G1023. So today I finally decided to put this slick little sucker onto my TS. Instructions are not what I like but they are easy enough to figure out. I drilled hold in my tubes got the rails of the DRO connected. Then went to attach the hangers to the DRO Rails and, well nothing as in it wouldn’t tig...

Great chisels for a great price

Great chisels for a great price

08-02-2011 01:52 PM by funchuck | 9 comments »

I ordered these chisels from The Best Things and to be honest, I wasn’t that excited about them. I was buying them because my old chisels (Pinnacle brand from Woodcraft) really sucked. The edge would roll over after 5 paring strokes on poplar end grain. I used a strop to unroll the edge, but that didn’t work too well, so I went looking for better chisels. I can’t believe I dealt with these chisels for ~6 years, but most of those years, I didn’t really use them. ...

Awesome saw

Awesome saw

12-08-2011 05:35 PM by funchuck | 7 comments »

When I first got this saw, my first impression was just how beautiful it was. It just looks so good! It’s also very big, but also well balanced. The handle is very comfortable and it cuts very well. I was worried about the thin saw plate, but after using it, I think it is a big advantage because it seems to cut much easier. I also have 2 Veritas saws (the dovetail and x-cut carcass), a Pax saw (the rip panel saw) and a japanese pull saw from the home center (which is actually pre...

How to Upgrade Chisels?

How to Upgrade Chisels?

04-20-2012 10:51 PM by TDog | 38 comments »

I have really enjoyed my Marples Blue Chip Chisels passed down in my family. I like the quick sharpening of the O-1 carbon steel. I have cut a few dovetails now with them in a few projects and practice but would like a bit nicer set or few new chisels. I am wanting to purchase a new set. I am debating between these now: Lie Nielsen A 2 Bench ChiselsBarr Tools 0 1 Cabinet Makers Chiselsand just maybe Blue Spruce A 2 if only a couple new ones. I would like any comments if you have use...

I see that the last review was posted around 3 years ago. I bought this item several weeks ago and couldn’t be more pleased with it. What the other 3 people said about it is still true today! I am totally amazed how accurate this system is when making my cuts. I just wish I would have been able to afford the router table combo!

Craftsman 10” Table Saw with Laser Trac® (21807) (In Canada – CRAFTSMAN®/MD Limited Edition 10’’ Table Saw with Stand – item 097 827 835 10) I’ve been meaning to type this up for a while but haven’t gotten around to it. After seeing another forum inquiring about a problem with the tablesaw I decided to stop slacking and get this done. The saw itself has decent power and will cut through 2 inches of hard maple without too much trouble as long as you go slow. It co...

The New Rikon 70-220 VDR Wood Working lathe

The New Rikon 70-220 VDR Wood Working lathe

10-18-2014 04:20 PM by ncdon | 5 comments »

After a couple of weeks of near full time turning I think I can write a decent review of my new Midi Lathe. To date I’ve turned a couple of bowls, several pens and some Christmas ornamentsTo tell the truth I stopped in my local Woodcraft store to look at the Jet 1221. I was very surprised to see a Rikon lathe with virtually identical specs.The 70-220 VSR is an electronically controlled variable speed lathe, with reverse. It advertises a 12 1/2 inch swing over the bed, a 1 hp motor, e...

Compact driver with power to spare!

Compact driver with power to spare!

02-29-2008 10:02 PM by Hawgnutz | 2 comments »

Don’t let its dinminuitive size fool you, this driver is packed to work! It has become my go-to driver for most of my screw driving needs! It comes with a compact charger, but you won’t need this too often. This really holds its charge! Its lithium ion technology keeps it fully charged in my drawer until I need it, although you can leave it in its compact charging crale without harm. It comes with about 30 bits with an extension bar, all in rubber holders. The direction sw...

Video> Finally I am getting to do some spray painting I spent hours watching videos and worrying about lord knows what… So armed with 3 spray guns my mask on my face and dressed up like a bio-tech sci-fi movie character I was ready to lay my first covering and I have to say I was as nervous as a school girl (What ever that means) The first gun I tried was the touch up gun with the 1.0 mm tip right out of the box which is really to small for the paint which was latex and required a 1.5mm ti...
