Thompson Lathe Tool Handles

Thompson Lathe Tool Handles

11-18-2010 06:48 PM by Big_Bob | 5 comments »

I was looking for two new lathe tool handles when I stumbled across the Thompson website. I was intrigued by the idea that the handles were square and not round. They are not truly square because the edges are rounded over, but they are not the traditional round shape. The idea being the turner’s right hand can feel the shape of the tool and know where the flute of the tool is facing. If for example the flat part is facing up then the flute is up if the edge is up then the flute is facing...

1/8 Micro Die Grinder

1/8 Micro Die Grinder

08-03-2011 05:34 AM by Raymond | 1 comment »

Another trip to Harbor Freight the other day finds me bringing home a few more air tool. This little grinder reminds me of the dentist, even sounds like the dentist. 56000 Rpm, 2 CFM @ 90 PSI. The twist on off feature is ok but not very user friendly. I am working on a foot control. It feels nice in the hand and has tons of power. No vibration and the hose is very flexible. 1 year warentee, and came with all the fittings. If your looking for an inexpensive 22.99 $ high speed tool this just mi...

Nice Little Sander Keeps the Air Clean

Nice Little Sander Keeps the Air Clean

12-14-2011 09:42 AM by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

This is one of only a handful of random orbit sanders that offers a pleated filter. The dust collection works great without a vacuum. The vacuum attachment fits the Woodcraft vacuum hose if so desired. The velcro works fine, and it takes an 8 hole disk. I use it with 80, 120, 150, and occasionally 220 grit. It is a lower powered unit than my Dewalt ROS, but also vibrates less. The variable speed is nice for easing the edges of small workpieces. The handle is the most comfortable I have...

Nearly everything you could ask for in a scroll saw

Nearly everything you could ask for in a scroll saw

04-26-2012 02:11 PM by wbrisett | 5 comments »

I have a shop full of tools; bandsaw, planer, joiner, table saw, drill press, and scroll saw. One of the things I’ve loved doing over the past eight years or so is making things on the scroll saw. After initially buying a Craftsman scroll saw and putting it to use, I saw a need for a better saw. I found a great deal on a used PS Wood 21-in scroll saw that I used for the past seven years. However, recently I was making some gifts that required me to do some very delicate fret-type work. ...

Great Circular Saw

Great Circular Saw

10-17-2012 02:19 PM by pendledad | 5 comments »

So my experience is limited with circular saws. I used my Dad’s 1980’s craftsman a few times and I was always terrified at how loud it was. Anyways, I’m sure I would be very happy with any new circular saw that I purchased because I’ve really only used an old chunky low quality saw with a crappy blade. Anyways, here is my thought process on why I chose this saw and my first impressions from using it. Off to HD for some hands on… Step 1—FitRegardles...

Very Happy with my new table saw

Very Happy with my new table saw

02-24-2013 01:59 PM by Don | 20 comments »

Well, I’ve had my new CX200 for about two months now and overall, I couldn’t be happier. My old BT3100 said our goodbyes and I borrowed my son, his friend and his truck and off to Busy Bee we went. I had actually purchased the saw two weeks prior to this but I wanted to sell my old one before getting the CX200 home. As it was, I got it home and the BT3100 was still in the garage so I just left it in boxes. Three of us manhandled this 500 lb bad boy off the back of the pickup…...

Intra Ocular Lens Implants Can Make a World of Difference!

Intra Ocular Lens Implants Can Make a World of Difference!

09-10-2013 03:50 AM by JohnnyB | 16 comments »

So what do lens implants have to do with woodworking? That’s easy to answer with another question. What does good vision have to do with woodworking? At age 69, I have had cataract surgery and lens implants for both eyes, and the improvement in my vision has been amazing. Dang cataracts sneak up on you. I was having trouble reading the graduations on my rules. Things looked hazy, and cleaning my glasses did not help. Driving was becoming problematic. In the shop, sometimes I wasn’...

Porter Cable 4.5" Cordless Angle Grinder: Revised

Porter Cable 4.5" Cordless Angle Grinder: Revised

10-23-2014 02:19 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 2 comments »

Had a break in the middle of my project because I’m waiting on some parts, so I decided to review one of my recent tool purchases. I bought it at Lowes for $35. Tool buying tip: go find a sale online and ask the cashiers to price match. Lowes has a price +10% guarantee. Then you get another 5% if you put it on your Lowes credit card. See my video review:

JDS Company 2 HP Cyclone Dust Collector, Model 2100 CKV

First, let me thank all those that have taken the time and made the effort to write reviews. I’ve read hundreds. I appreciated them all. It’s time for me to give back to the Lumberjocks community. This is my first review….ever. I hope to be a little more diligent about writing reviews. I wanted to start with something that I really like – my JDS 2 HP Cyclone Dust Collector, Model 2100 CKV. It was my third big purchase after a new Jet JWBS-14SF bandsaw and a slightly-used Powermatic 200...

More useful the more I use it

More useful the more I use it

I’ve been using this since about last November and I’m just now at the point that if I lost it I think I’d have to stop working until I got another one. Super simple to use, and I love the graduated pencil holes, it makes drawing a square referenced off of an edge a simple task that takes only a few seconds. What can I say, I love this thing. Wayne
