Excellent Custom-sized Washable Air Filter for Shop

Excellent Custom-sized Washable Air Filter for Shop

56 days ago by BigRedKnothead | 18 comments »

I have a Jet AFS-400 Air Filter mounted on the ceiling in my shop. I like having it, but I was frustrated with the stock pleated filters. The old filters didn’t hold up well, and they were to expensive to replace often. I’ve seen that Rockler sells a washable electrostatic filter…..but not for my model. So, I hit the internet and found this place: Air Filters Inc out of Nevada. They’ve got a nice website. I priced out the size I needed and was happy to find i...

Understanding Wood Finishing by Bob Flexner (1994 edition)

Understanding Wood Finishing by Bob Flexner (1994 edition)

495 days ago by Purrmaster | 11 comments »

Please note: This is for the 1994 edition of the book. I recently got this book and have now read it cover to cover. This is a fantastic book. I learned more from this book than everything else I’ve read on finishing. The book covers pretty much all of the finishes you’d be putting on wood. Varnish, shellac, lacquer, oil, etc. The book isn’t so much a how to manual about how to apply the finishes (though there is enough of that). It’s more of a primer on th...

My first REAL cordless driver!

My first REAL cordless driver!

2192 days ago by Tess | 6 comments »

Bought this 18V Lithium-Ion Drill-Driver from Home Hardware, refurbished, for $190 CDN. Sound steep? Well, I’ve got to tell you, it’s worth every penny! I used to do home renovations for fun and now I’ve gotten into professional contracting. I’d gone through a few cheapie cordless drills just with the around-the-house use and I was never happy with them. They were never robust enough (any screws over 2” and I wouldn’t have even tried the cordless). ...

Powertec + Wolverine FTW

Powertec + Wolverine FTW

223 days ago by Fettler | 5 comments »

I just received and setup my new Powertec slow speed grinder. It’s a 1/2 hp grinder that spins at 1725RPM. It comes with both 60grit and 120grit white aluminum oxide wheels (i may replace the 120grit wheel with a 60grit Norton). Total cost from Amazon was $92.09 shipped ($69.99 + $22.10 shipping). While the grinder is an import from China, It’s surprising pleasantly to use. I’m using a cast iron stand i purchased from Harbor Freight. The Powertec is replacing a Harbor Fre...

Very good DC at very affordable price

Very good DC at very affordable price

47 days ago by Jesse | 5 comments »

I have been running this dust collector for several months now and have had no issues. The suction is really good, I can have several ports open at one time with no problems. At under $700 it is the same price as the Powermatic 1.75HP machine but with more power and more capacity, I know because I own both machines. The Grizzly is 3HP and has a 7 inch inlet. I don’t like the 7 inch because it is tough to find all the piping for that size but after searching the home improvement stor...

Big, Powerful and CHEAP this Friday!

1239 days ago by StumpyNubs | 12 comments »

Black Friday is a migical time of year! Every November my wife spends days plotting her strategy out to get the best deals on stuff we need and some we just plain want. It may mean standing in line freezing our butts of and listening to some idiots jabber on about who know what for a couple of hours, but it has become a right of passage for us, and we love the challange. This year there’s a lot of things we would like to get, but i thought I’d pass on this tidbit to my fellow L...

California Air Tools model 1610A Ultra Quiet & Oil Free Air Compressor

California Air Tools model 1610A Ultra Quiet & Oil Free Air Compressor

102 days ago by MrRon | 17 comments »

I just received the long awaited air compressor I bought off Amazon. It arrived in perfect condition by UPS as I was eating dinner. After reading the manual, I plugged it in and flipped the ON switch. I couldn’t believe how quiet this compressor was. Four rubber feet kept it anchored to the floor with no vibration. It uses a two cylinder pump driven off an induction motor. It is oil free and has an aluminum tank. At 35 pounds, even a 79 year old can lug this around without much effort. ...

Scheppach Deco-Flex - a decent starter scrollsaw for an OK price

Scheppach Deco-Flex - a decent starter scrollsaw for an OK price

320 days ago by Skiedra | 4 comments »

+ nice working capabilities+ normal operating noise+ large “throat” depth+ takes both pin and pinless blades+ the addons and the rotary tool is a perfect addition to a beginner scrollsawer. So you do not need to buy a dremel or any similar rotary tool - bit painful process to change the blades. You have to rotate 3 screws, 2 on top, 1 at the bottom of the saw.- you seriously need to bold it down, otherwise it moves- attached rotating bit are a bit too “toyish”, but does some light sanding/...

Clean Your Bits & Blades

Clean Your Bits & Blades

688 days ago by plantek | 6 comments »

I’ve always heard about the virtues of cleaning you saw blade when you think it’s time to get it resharpened.Well I finally did it and ended up with a blade as good as it was when new.I wanted a environmentally friendly cleaner to do and decided to try the degreaser I use to remove the shipping grease that comes on new tools…This stuff worked fantastic. I used a lid from a Homedepot 5gal bucket and let the blade soak for about 2 – 5 mins. I then only had to gently br...
