comparison with Rockwell

The task was to lower a bar stool 2 1/4”.And not have the usual problem with not level legs when we got done. We also had a Fein Multimaster and the new Porter Cable SoniCrafter To ensure the same length was cut off each leg we cut a piece of PVC to 2 1/4”.The Fein and the PC each had a couple of blades that could be used but we took the round serrated blades as they were the same thickness.We just ran the blades around the leg resting them on the PVC. That gave us a uniform...

Trend AirShield Pro, Up for Review

Trend AirShield Pro, Up for Review

09-03-2014 01:34 PM by woodshopmike | 10 comments »

I’ve owned the Trend AirShield Pro for two years now. This piece of equipment is definitely a keeper and has made woodworking much more enjoyable now that I no longer suffer from the congestion and sinus perils that used to plague my woodworking. The full right up of pros and cons can be found on my blog. Thanks for reading guys, I hope this helps! Regards, Mike

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...

Sawblade.com customer service, hit and miss

Sawblade.com customer service, hit and miss

From reviews on this site of the Haltbar Sagen blades, I thought I might try out some for my Grizzly G0513.I ordered two 1/2” 101 Flexback series, 131.5” long, 4 TPI, and I also ordered two of their 201 Hardback series, a 1/2” 4TPI and a 3/8” 6TPI. I completed the order online, and in three days, two boxes appeared on my front porch, each containing one 201 series Haltbar, with the proper label on the side of the box describing the model, length, width, and TPI. In...

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

10-26-2009 03:59 AM by drfixit | 9 comments »

This is going to be my first review here at LJs and hope some one finds it of use. I normally use the cheap little shop brushes for spreading glue in joints and on tenons and such. I went by the local WoodCraft the other day to pick some up and came across these polypropylene glue spreaders. There is 6 in a pack and at $3.50 I figured it would be worth a shot. Love em! I use a lot of Tight Bond glue, after using one the other night while glueing up a clock case, I simply let it dry over n...

Pretty Nice Carving Gouges

Pretty Nice Carving Gouges

10-29-2010 12:23 AM by Eric in Florida. | 4 comments »

I wanted a set of carving gouges , but I couldn’t afford to spend an arm and a leg.I was pretty surprised when these arrived and turned out to be nicer then I thought they would be.Given the price of around $11.00 a gouge, these are nice.They range from 1/4” to 1” and were sharp enough to use right out of the box, but I’ll hone them up real good and give a report a little down the road on how they work out.I gave four stars based on my initial impression, but we’...

Good for helping you get back to your projects quicker

Good for helping you get back to your projects quicker

I won’t go into extensive review on this tool as JC did an extended video review of the WS2000 here. It came with 80 and 220 grit slotted discs which are good for medium duty grinding. I tried using the 80 grit solid wheel with the tool guide (coming up from underneath) and although it gave an accurate angle, it was more like grinding with 40 grit. Going to 220, it couldn’t get the grind marks out of the face of the bevel. I eneded up with a polished face with circular marks in...

Laguna Driftmaster:  5 Stars for performance, 3 Stars for fit and finish

Laguna Driftmaster: 5 Stars for performance, 3 Stars for fit and finish

10-30-2014 04:05 PM by Rockne | 2 comments »

I’ve pretty well summed up my feelings about Laguna’s terrible customer service, or lack thereof (search for my review of the LT14 SUV). When they failed to deliver the saw, I sent all of the accessories/blades back to Laguna . . . except the Driftmaster. Had anyone out there produced something like it, I would have opted for the alternative, but since Laguna is the only game in town, I held onto it. When I opened the pacakge, I was a little disappointed. The clear plastic/c...

Good glue bottle from an unexpected source!

Good glue bottle from an unexpected source!

02-29-2008 11:41 PM by Hawgnutz | 6 comments »

this glue bottle has a brush hidden inside with an adjustable metal stem. The stem can be adjusted for different levels to keep the brush at the level of teh glue in the bottle by screwing a set screw on top. The brush helps spread the glue on wood with even strokes. This is a great glue bottle at a very reasonable price! God Bless,Hawg
