MLW Tool Box DVD and Grand Slam Tools 4-PAK Holiday Special

MLW Tool Box DVD and Grand Slam Tools 4-PAK Holiday Special

12-12-2009 04:55 PM by FlWoodRat | 8 comments »

Fellow Lumberjocks, Tommy MacDonald at Major League Woodworking has done it again. Tommy is offering his first MLW DVD and the Grand Slam Tools 4-Pak as a Holiday Special for only $100. I’m very happy to have taken advantage of the opportunity. Yesterday I received my set. As expected, it was impecably packaged. Since Tommy’s 4-Pak (Bench Bat, Marking Gauge and two 1:6 paring blocks) has already been reviewed here, I will focus on the MLW Tool Box Project #1 DVD. The DVD is ...

20: single surface planer

20: single surface planer

07-10-2015 02:43 AM by Steve | 2 comments »

Gave this planer a good workout today. Between the jointer yesterday and the planer today ended up with 6 55 Gal. drums of shavings. The planer performed great no problems at all. The helical head a lot quieter than knives. Reduced the 6” dust port to 4” and everything got sucked right out, another great tool!

Woodriver Responds

Woodriver Responds

03-05-2013 08:45 PM by mcase | 13 comments »

I posted a review of the Woodriver #3 a while back. In that review I was critical of the short chipbreaker and of the the lower-level Woodcraft customer service response to the problem. Well, I am happy to report that Woodcraft passed the complaint up the ladder and the higher ups corrected the problem. I now have received a Woodriver #3 with the new chip breaker of sufficient length. Like the three other Woodriver Planes I own it was absolutely flat and required no fettling. Just a...

Accessory Blades for the Veritas Small Plow

This is a short pictorial on setting up the Small Plow to cut T&Gs. This is a new-to-me plane, and I took a few pics as I was working out the kinks and having a little play. I hope this helps some of you. Link: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ToolReviews/AccessoryBladesfortheVeritasSmallPlow.html Regards from Perth Derek

HF 6" ratchet clamp... why do I do this to myself?!?

HF 6" ratchet clamp... why do I do this to myself?!?

06-26-2012 06:33 AM by harvey4804 | 35 comments »

So I picked up 2 Harbor Freight 6” ratchet clamps a while back and they worked just fine… for 1.99 clamps. The holding pressure wasn’t a whole lot but for little jobs it was fine. The alignment/parallelism of the actual clamp pads are off by several degrees no matter how much you clamp it down. But again… 1.99 clamps. This past weekend I was using it to help me assemble a decorative fence around my wife’s garden. After a short period in the sun the plastic got...

This is why I trust Delta machinery :) I hope I am not coming off as a brand snob but this jointer is over 36 years old, AND STILL RUNNING ON THE ORIGINAL KNIVES TO BOOT!!!!!! I picked this up this spring from a guy at work who was getting rid of his shop and moving into a condo for $100 and with only the cord needing replaced from dry rot and rust from being in the basement it performs like it did coming out of the box :) Adding to this Parts are still available along with the Owners manual ...

New affordable sliding mater saw

New affordable sliding mater saw

06-15-2009 04:38 AM by Milo | 5 comments »

Hey True Believers, I’ve needed a new miter saw for too long now, and had actually purchased a 10” Skil from WorkShop tools. A couple weeks back I saw on their website that they had generic SLIDING miter saw for about 140.00. It was TD 10” Sliding Miter saw. Well, I’ve been trying to figure out where to put a big Radial arm saw I had (and had never used) and ended up taking the plunge with the new sliding miter instead. Since I had never opened up the box with...

New Fence

New Fence

01-24-2013 03:54 AM by Steve | 2 comments »

Well finally picked up my fence and rails for my General cabinet saw. Was a little dissapointed when I had to start removing parts from it and straightening them out in my vise. The measuring tape that sticks onto the front rail was all creased, and the backing tape that comes on it was half peeled off. The bolts that anchor the rails onto the table seemed a little light, and the melamine extension table that comes with it was not truely flat. All in all it is all mounted and set up so I can ...

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

04-10-2015 10:41 PM by Redoak90 | 3 comments »

I purchased the Gramercy tools sash saw kit a few weeks back. The kit comes with a saw plate with a brass back and 2 pairs of saw nut and bolt in brass. The saw was packaged in an anti-rust paper with bubble wrap. Nothing was damaged when it arrived and it looked flawless. No scratches, dings, or dents present. The saw is 14” long has 13 ppi and a 0.02” saw plate. I bought the kit because the only saw I had was a Veritas dovetail saw and wanted a larger saw to cut larger pie...

Edge Detail Sanding Made Easy

Edge Detail Sanding Made Easy

05-10-2010 09:16 AM by DustyNewt | 5 comments »

I don’t remember where I first saw these advertised, but I filed it in the back of my mind to try later. Well, I was getting some basic shop supplies from Klingspor and happened to remember them. This is the link to where I found them. I do a lot of small carvings, making keychains and pendants (see examples), and the small pieces can be fumblesome for my fat fingers to hand sand. These do not eliminate this, but go a long way to ease things, timewise. They reach in between my cuts a...
