Hitachi Cordless Drill

Hitachi Cordless Drill

02-06-2010 07:01 PM by Kjuly | 22 comments »

My old Delta cordless drill, drilled it’s last hole after four plus years of service. It was a 14 volt drill that served me well. The drill is in decent shape but the batteries would not hold a charge long enough to drive a 2? drywall screw. To replace the two batteries would cost over $75.00. I do not want to put that kind of money in to batteries with the life of the drill motor uncertain. Time to go shopping for a new cordless drill. First, lets look at what I need in a drill and ho...

Good qaulity cutter

Good qaulity cutter

06-08-2010 02:27 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 5 comments »

I purchased this bit to speed up and simplify my box making. To install the lid and base it calls for a 1/4 inch groove around the top and bottom of all sides. Instead of fiddling with the table saw and instead of taking the time to install a dado head I figured it seemed reasonable to have a router with this bit dedicated.This is my first experience with Eagle America and it wont be my last. The shipping was incredible. I only got the standard shipping and I ordered it on Wednesday of last w...

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Suprisingly useful for trimming small components.

Up for review is a scaled-down version of the Veritas edge jointing block plane. I recently purchased this miniature as a novelty item but found it to be a very effective tool for small projects. Like the miniature Veritas shoulder plane, this tool is made from investment cast steel. Precisely machined on its sole and integral fence, the plane also features a nicely flattened iron which sharpens easily. On the whole, fit and finish is top notch as it is on all Veritas products. After...

Everyone should have about 17 of these in their shop

Everyone should have about 17 of these in their shop

03-15-2011 08:07 AM by Tedstor | 15 comments »

OK, a spring clamp is hardly a tool that dreams are made of. But a few days ago it occured to me that I’ve had a pair of these exact clamps in my shop for a few years now. I’ve probably used them 483 times since then. Very strong, very good quality. A couple days later I found myself in the HD for an extension cord, and decided to pick up a few more spring clamps while I was there. I could not remember how much I paid for the original pair, so I was pleasantly surprised to find th...

Not perfect, but FAR better than the 3M rubber block!

Not perfect, but FAR better than the 3M rubber block!

04-20-2012 02:12 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

A little disclaimer here. I hate sanding, anything that slows the process down, or fails in the process that I do not want to be doing in the first place earns instant hatred from me, which was what got me looking for a new sanding block in the first place. I started out with a 3M rubber sanding block which is basically the same design as this Norton, just different materials. And it’s the choice in materials that makes all the difference in the world. Simply put, the Norton is a nic...

Not what they said it was!

Not what they said it was!

02-22-2013 12:32 AM by grosa | 26 comments »

This drill Does not perform the way they said it would. I give them 5 stars on the weight, it is very light, half the weight of a Dewalt drill. The first three weeks the battery would last 4 or 5 hours. Keep in mind I am working this drill 8 hours or more a day. A month later the battery life dropped dramatically. I am changing batteries 5 or 6 times a day. The torque is half of the Dewalt drill, even though the Dewalt is heaver and cost more I think it is worth the money. I was lucky eno...

Flexcut Micro Carving Tools

Flexcut Micro Carving Tools

10-18-2014 07:02 AM by Druid | 3 comments »

For those LJ members who (like me) have wanted to add some finer carving tools to their collection, the attached photo shows the newly introduced Micro Tools from Flexcut. Mine just arrived this week, and my initial impression is that they certainly match the high quality that I have always experienced from this manufacturer.They come fully honed and ready to use . . . read that as “razor sharp”. I have been looking for smaller scale carving tools for some time now, but have not...

Trend Grinding Stone, Up For Review

Trend Grinding Stone, Up For Review

03-03-2015 04:55 PM by woodshopmike | 1 comment »

The grinding stone by Trend is a 180 grit diamond whetstone that is great for reprofiling a chisel, flattening the back of blades, and truing plane soles or other traditional whetstones. It certainly speeds up the progress of these typically rather time consuming activities. This is not however a one stop product, it is rather an addition to something like the Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit. I’d recommend this product to anyone that reprofiles (read drops) there chisels frequently :...

It does it's job

It does it's job

I received this for Christmas and I just now had a chance to use it. I’m building a split top roubo workbench and had to put center marks on the chop and the leg. Very simple to use. The black print on stainless is easy to read, and there are holes laser cut into it for pencil marks. This is the first centering rule I’ve ever used, I know there are others out there, but I sure do like Incra’s stuff. Thanks for reading, and have a great day. Wayne
