Some seriously slippery surfaces.

Some seriously slippery surfaces.

This product is used to lubricate any surface in the shop where drag and hang ups across in feed/out feed tables, fences and the like are problematic. Used in place of silicone or other lubricants that would contaminate the woods/materials surface and create a build up of lube and sawdust on equipment and machinery. I have used a similar more expensive product in a few of the larger production shops that I have worked in over the years and have seen first-hand the benefits of using a dry l...

Exceptional performance at a reasonable price

Exceptional performance at a reasonable price

I purchased the medium WoodRiver shoulder plane in December; it was 20% off and then I had an additional $10 coupon. Before tax; $110. This deal was too good to pass up. After a few minutes on a 4000 grit water stone the blade was razor sharp. The body was perfectly square and the blade adjustment works very smoothly. I have never used a Veritas or Lie Nielson should plane and cannot compare the WoodRiver plane to the others. I am very pleased with the WoodRiver shoulder plane and would r...

I have never reviewed any tool before, but I like this one so much that I needed to say something.I, like most LJ’s, build my own jigs and push sticks, but I need to cut a lot of small pieces for trim, inlay etc.I have already cut myself on the tablesaw once and that was plenty for the rest of my life!!!! So I bought the basic Grr-ripper with the additional 1/8” leg, set it up and started cutting slightly under 1/8’pieces and my hands were NO WHERE NEAR the blade. What a ...

I can't believe these are 8 bucks

I can't believe these are 8 bucks

I didn’t feel like making my own bench dogs, I also didn’t feel like paying tons of money for them. In one of my many recent trips to woodcraft, I saw these and decided to try them out The Good They work. They fit snugly in the 3/4” holes I drilled and laid flat on the bench top. They are nylon, but appear to be very strong. I clamped down on my vise way more than I needed to a few times to see if they would crack or give. They didn’t. The flat faces are just the...

Awesome pocket hole system

I was trying to determine the best method for joining together my radiator covers. I didn’t have time for traditional joinery like mortise & tenon. I needed something where I could build 4 radiator covers in about two days (very fast for a newcomer like me). I was going between a biscuit joiner and pocket screws. I finally decided on pocket screws because I didn’t want to deal with the gluing and drying. I also liked the fact that I could disassemble the pieces if I made ...

Power Carver

I was looking for a power carver the other day and much to my suprise they are rather expensive. I got to thinking about what tool could I adapt. I went to Menards and was looking around at different tools and came accorss the Tool Shop Engraver, variable strokes per minute from 4200 to 7200, for 9.99 how could I go wrong. I got it home and discovered the carbide cutter is held in with a set screw. I removed the cutter and began thinking what could I use for a chisels. I had purched from Flee...

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...

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED

I am writing my review in order to help people with their decision on a purchase of this unit. Before I begin I had some reservations about this and was unsure about making this investment, Even though it is an economical unit, 350 to 400 bucks is a lot to throw away on a piece of garbage that doesn;t work correctly Anyways I am more than pleased with this purchase. I never give 5 stars because when we write these posts we have no way of determining on how long something will last. I may writ...

Okay I know what your thinking…..Harbor Freight really? Here’s the back story, I a run a small Pro woodworking Biz specializing in antique repro, custom furniture, and other Artisanal product. I’ve found a niche I needed to fill in my equipment roster, that hopefully will save me a bit of time and therefore money on one of my products( that I do alot of). The problem….after much research….. NO ONE makes what I need. So I had two choices either make what I wanted ...
