Nice job but it takes time

Nice job but it takes time

07-12-2011 10:54 PM by RexMcKinnon | 12 comments »

I bought this product because I thought it would improve the look of the pool deck I am building and although I am not finished yet I think it has. The whole purpose of the jig is too allow the user to screw down decking without showing the screw and that’s exactly what it did. My decking is made from 5/4 pressure treated boards. There are 10 joists each spaced 16 on centers and there are 2 screws per joist which gives 20 screws per board. To boards feel as if the are held down well. I ...

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

12-27-2011 01:37 AM by Elizabeth | 9 comments »

Right now this Rockler product (item 39227) is on sale for $20, normally $30, and as I’ve had my eye on it for a little while I decided to go for it and ordered three sets shortly before Christmas. I installed and loaded up all three sets within two hours this morning and am very pleased at the quality of the product. Each set includes two 24” tracks, six 14” shelf brackets and six screws. With my new magnetic studfinder (also reviewed recently) it was a piece of cake t...

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

12-04-2009 10:22 PM by hairy | 1 comment »

Why didn’t I think of this? It’s too easy. I have to move my dust hose around a lot, and these work for me. They actually have a pretty good grip, but they won’t make your arms look Popeye. Unpacking and assembly is pretty straightforward, although there are no instructions . At 2 for $6, it’s a good deal. http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2080307/28347/2-piece-Double-Loop-Squeeze-Hose-Clamp-for-4-Dust-Collection-Hose.aspx

This hammer could be better, but with a little work it'll be fine.

My wife bought the claw hammer for my birthday early on in our marriage. The message was clear, “build me a house or break your thumbs trying”. Well, th...

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

09-16-2011 11:37 PM by NiteWalker | 7 comments »

I bought one of these bushing sets way back before woodcraft rebranded all their in house products as woodriver. That set has performed flawlessly over the years. A few things I love about the set is the variety of included sizes, the fact that they’re brass and won’t work loose as easily as steel bushings can, and that all the rims of the guides protrude less than 1/4” so 1/4” template material can be used. I recently bought another set because they’re on ...

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 ...

Stumpy Nubs Box Joint Jig 2.0

Stumpy Nubs Box Joint Jig 2.0

01-15-2015 06:35 PM by NKYKelly | 3 comments »

I had previously purchased the Gear-Driven Box Joint Jig plan from Woodgears.ca. After getting tired of thining about conversion of the Metric Plan, I came across Stumpy’s v2.0 design. Also, one of the first things I built was the Woodsmith Adjustable Box Joint Jig. I like it and used it a great deal, but setup to achieve a great fitting joint was time-consuming This is a good plan and a very unique design. Stumpy is much like Mathias and John Heinz. Great brain for design, but ...

“This is awesome,” said host John Palanca, on an episode of DIY Network’s “Under Construction.” “It’s a great concept, great idea that is well thought out by a carpenter. Half the job on a jobsite is setting up and this is already set up for you.”
