Best sander I have ever used

Best sander I have ever used

10-28-2013 07:36 PM by lumberjoe | 9 comments »

This is truly a 5 star sander (unfortunately with a 5 star price to boot). I’ve always been an ROS guy but never able to get a mirror smooth finish without some hand touch-up in certain areas. This sander delivers! The Good Overall Construction This sander is well built. It’s heavy, yet ergonomically pleasing. The front handle comes off if need be. It is solid, quiet, and vibration free. It comes with a dust port fitting, or a dust collection tube with a filter inside (that ...

I aint fraid of ladders no more

I aint fraid of ladders no more

06-26-2009 12:57 AM by Zuki | 9 comments »

I hate ladders, especially extension ladders. The height does not bother me . . . it’s the sudden stop at the end of a fall that does. When I decided to start our rear deck I became a little apprehensive as it is 11 feet off the ground over the stairwell going into the basement (another 8 ft). But then I found Stand-off arms by LITE. I picked them up at Canadian Tire for $25. There is nothing bad that I can say. The ladder is super stable and offers extra mobility to work agains...

Quangsheng Stainless Steel Spoke Shave Pair

Quangsheng Stainless Steel Spoke Shave Pair

10-02-2013 04:16 PM by wingate_52 | 2 comments »

Just retired and I build guitars and ukuleles amongst other stuff. I love tools and the better the tool, the better and happier I work. I have had a pair of Record spoke shaves for 40 years and they chatter. The blades are thin, the mouths are big. I have fettled them and they work…quite well. I have noticed these Quangsheng shaves for a few months. I have some of their planes and they are excellent, as are their plane blades and back irons. They have really improved my collect...

Excellent performance at a decent price

DISCLAIMER:This is the 1 and only spray system I’ve ever used/seen so take this with a grain of salt. this review is based on my expectations and experience from this unit. I have been brushing/wiping finish, but always wanted to spray for the benefits of:1. time (faster process, and faster drying time – also less contamination probability of the finish)2. ease and effort (less sanding, and less effort applying finish) I got this unit used off of craigslist for a bargain pr...

I’ve never written a review before. But, there’s been many conflicting reviews on the internet such as Amazon and a few others about the difficulty of assembling the base. I’ve had no problems putting this together. However, the box did say “Improved Design”. Maybe that had something to do with it. It was quite simple, and the instructions were clear. The only reason I looked at the instructions was because some people were having such problems, that I was try...

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 ...

Solid jointer

Solid jointer

I lucked into the closeout deal at Woodcraft where it was being sold for $150. Shipping was $75. As I live in an apartment in NYC, I had it delivered to my sister’s house as she has both a garage and an SUV I could borrow to get it to my shop which is in Pennsylvania. It was shipped the same day and it arrived in three business days. I was concerned about how I would get it out of the truck, but the shipper had a liftgate and it was no problem. The best news was that it fit in my car: ...

12-1/2" benctop planer

12-1/2" benctop planer

01-08-2009 05:57 AM by rwyoung | 7 comments »

For the same reasons I wanted a benchtop jointer, I wanted a benchtop planer. There are a few reviews of the 13” model around and looking at their manals on line, the 12-1/2 is quite similar and somewhat cheaper. The unit came well packed with two pieces of form fit styrofoam and a nice heavy poly bag to protect the planer. Also in the box was a chip collection shroud with a 4” port in addition to the stock deflector. As near as I could tell, the collection shroud is a ̶...

Great tools vs. good tools.

Great tools vs. good tools.

I got a fair amount of good Brownie points at amazon during Christmas, that I decided to spring the plunger on a Tormek T-3. I have had lots of problems here in Houston, working in a 2-car garage with all the humidity, to keep my tools sharp. Sharpen one day rusty the next. I have been using scary sharp, diamond stones, but I spent most of my time with dull tools. Not any more.I have spent a couple of days getting all the tools that need sharping out of the garage and cleaned them up.Then ...
