Makita Track Saw - excellent product at a good price

Makita Track Saw - excellent product at a good price

12-08-2014 08:49 PM by philba | 17 comments »

I’ve had the SP6000 for about a month now and used it a number of times. Mostly, I’ve broken down 3/4” and 18 mm plywood but also done finer work including most of the final cuts for several Baltic Birch shop cabinets. Yesterday I cut 1/2” off the bottom of a painted door. More on this in a bit… Overall, I really like the SP6000. It works as advertised. Plunging action is smooth, cutting with stock blade is surprisingly clean and dust collection is pretty...

Not Ridgid Quality

Not Ridgid Quality

10-14-2012 08:50 PM by Dan Corbin | 32 comments »

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Ridgid brand, especially their table saws. I had been looking at a bandsaw from Harbor Freight, but with the Ridgid band saw only $50 more, I thought it was a no-brainer. I really should’ve saved my money for something better…. I was excited to get my new bandsaw home and start cutting up some wood. But from the get-go, this was a bad experience. When the unit finally arrived, the box was in very poor shape. Fortunately, there was e...

I wish I had this years ago

I wish I had this years ago

01-27-2011 04:56 AM by HokieMojo | 8 comments »

My wife got me a craftsman impact driver for my birthday a while back. I know some people like to pick on craftsman, but I already had their cordless drill and I wanted to stick with interchangeable batteries. I use the 19.2V Ni-Cds. I know a lot of people swear by the Li-Ion, but those cost a lot more money. Now I’ll be able to upgrade in the future if I want, but based on my experience so far, I have no plans to do so. This thing is AWESOME! I can drive a 3” screw into a...

Live Edge Table

Live Edge Table

04-28-2013 04:40 PM by Justin57 | 11 comments »

I recently went to visit with my friend Charles Neil (New Market, VA), at his shop. Our friend Jim Pell was there building a corner cabinet and during my visit I went with Jim to C.P. Johnson Lumber (Elkwood, VA), to pick out some tiger maple. While there CP found me a very nice slab of cherry (8/4×17” x 7’), so I bought it with the intent to make a sofa table with a live edge look. With assistance and input from Charles, I spent 2 days carving the top, 2 days carving the ...

Dremel parts service

Dremel parts service

03-11-2013 02:41 PM by Sodabowski | 10 comments »

Hi guys. So this is what just happened to me today. Upon firing my Dremel, without any advice, it blew out dust like crazy in a crunching noise, with the usual smell of opal being ground. Suffice to say I immediately shut it off. Best guess: a small chunk from the last time I used it probably got sucked into the tool and was released when I fired it today, causing severe damage. Once unplugged, the first thing I noticed when extracting the carbons was that they were pretty damaged. ...

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

11-10-2013 07:54 PM by HillbillyShooter | 24 comments »

Some time ago, and without going into details, water got onto the out-feed table of my PowerMatic 60 long bed jointer. I use TopCote (now made by Bostik) on a regular basis to protect my tool tops, but it didn’t help prevent the rust or remove it. I was able to get the “red” rust off with steel wool and Boeshield T-9 Rust and Corrosion Protection. However, a black/gray stain remained which I couldn’t get off. This stain is shown in the second picture above. Recently I learned about a ...

Another 5 star gem from HF

Another 5 star gem from HF

09-21-2010 09:52 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 7 comments »

Last week I purchased a 10 Feet Long 4” clear hose from Rockwell, ( the one on the left) I spent the better part of the afternoon stretching it to fit the standard connections on my jointer, planer, TS and vacuum. Not a big deal. But since it wasn’t long enough to reach across the shop and I needed to order few things online from good ol Harbor Freight as in (Dust Collector Separator Lid) I decided to add one of their 10 feet hoses to the order.Let me tell ya, this thing fits perfect the fi...

The Pocket Hole Drilling Jig Project Book

The Pocket Hole Drilling Jig Project Book

05-29-2012 07:01 PM by Daris | 3 comments »

I don’t believe in reviewing or giving opinions on woodworking books unless you can legitimately say you’ve built at least a couple of items from the book.  I’ve completed the end tables in this book, and currently I’m working on the framed mirror project.  Now that I have presented my only credentials, and gotten that out-of-the-way; I have to say that I really enjoyed this book!  If you’re newer to the Kreg Jig you’ll definitely enjoy it!

Good Sander, but not Great

Good Sander, but not Great

06-05-2010 09:45 PM by Jim Crockett (USN Retired) | 9 comments »

I received this Milwaukee 1/4-sheet sander this week as a prize for completing surveys online – it was the only woodworking type tool offered. This replaces a B&D 1/4-sheet Palm Sander without oscillation. First impression is that it is packed well in a bright red plastic case with latches. Kit contains the sander, dust bag, three sheets of sandpaper (120, 180, 220), manual, and a paper punch. I had read reviews of this sander on Amazon and many users had complained that it is...

Woodworking Show Costa Mesa Ca.

Woodworking Show Costa Mesa Ca.

11-01-2009 01:18 AM by Ken90712 | 5 comments »

Well the Woodworking Show in Costa Mesa was nice! Ken and Pat, nice to meet you both! There was some great demonstrations and mini classes. I ended up spending four hundred w/o blinking an eye. My wife laughed when we got home and put all the stuff on the floor saying it’s like X-mas. Most impressive thing at the show was Sommerfelds Tools, Wow is all I can say. Their router kits and jigs are some of the most well thought out items I have every witnessed in use. I will be buying thei...
