Ridgid 12-volt Drill/Driver

Ridgid 12-volt Drill/Driver

2075 days ago by ferstler | 1 comment »

I already had a large and heavy 18-volt Ryobi drill/driver when I purchased this unit, and I wanted something lighter. I still have the Ryobi, which is a fine tool, but if the job is not too demanding I will pick up and use this smaller Ridgid model. Consequently I use this thing a lot around my shop and I must say that it has surprising power and handles very well. I rarely use the driver feature, mainly because I have three impact drivers on hand for that sort of thing (I recently review...

Great ROS

Great ROS

705 days ago by PittsburghTim | 7 comments »

I purchased this sander over six months ago and am certain that it’s the best ROS that I have ever used. It’s much easier to handle than the older Porter Cable unit that I have borrowed from my father in the past and is light years ahead of the 5” Dewalt that I own in finish, stock removal, and dust collection. It can remove material fast with the heavier grits and leaves a fine finsh as you work up to 240 or 320. The cannister filter that came with it worked very well. ...

Trust me - you will have hand plane razor blades

Trust me - you will have hand plane razor blades

204 days ago by ColonelTravis | 13 comments »

I had polished three plane blades with this stone for the first time and was putting a little paste wax on them for rust protection with a towel, and on #3 the blade went through the towel into my thumb. HAHAHA! WELCOME TO KITAYAMA KOUNTRY, MORON! Technically and scientifically, I can’t tell you how well this stone will polish a blade. Practically, I will say it’s damn better than I’ve ever gotten anything in my life – beautiful, death-sharp microbevel that will dem...

Acurate, Fast and Easy.

Acurate, Fast and Easy.

657 days ago by philphoto | 6 comments »

I have needed a way to set up my router fence and router bits in relationship to the fence. It seemed like the reversible glue joint bit, or lock miter bit were such great promise, only to have so much time wasted trying to hit the seemingly impossible perfect alignment of the joint parts. I had more success with the reversible glue joint bits, but still I would end up sanding to get it “right” and not really happy with the end result. Then I read a “Fine WoodworkingR...

Aggressive sander has great dust collection at a price.

Aggressive sander has great dust collection at a price.

586 days ago by mbs | 8 comments »

I haven’t seen any LJ reviews of the RAS. I don’t have a lot of experience with it yet but I’ll share my initial thoughts and update the review later. I bought this sander to hog out rocking chair seats, legs … I used standard 4.5” grinders with abrasive disks or donuts before I got the RAS115. The units without dust collection ports make a big mess very fast. I was looking for an aggressive sander with good dust collection. The RAS is comfortable to ho...

Excellent Clamps

Excellent Clamps

596 days ago by NiteWalker | 6 comments »

For a long time I’ve been looking for a good 12” clamp for my boxes I build. I’ve been through a few before I tried the Bessey Tradesman clamps, and I wish I had sooner. I tried the regular duty jorgensen 3700 series clamps. Those were ok, but you had to pay extra for clamp pads. But the dealbreaker for me was that the bars flex way too much for a 12” clamp. I also tried the heavy duty jorgensen 3700-HD series clamps. Those are great and have no bar flex at 12”...

A Must Have for Afficianatos

A Must Have for Afficianatos

1701 days ago by DannyBoy | 5 comments »

After reading the article (for the fourth time) “A Joiner’s Tool Chest” by Roy Underhill I had toolboxes and tool chests on my mind. So, when I was looking through the tool books at the library last night and happened across this book, I quickly snatched it up and glanced through it. Well, my wife had to remind me that the library hours were closing in and we needed to go because from the start I was engrossed! This is a great book. Especially, if you have any love of ...

Bessey Customer Service - Credit where it is due

Bessey Customer Service - Credit where it is due

1281 days ago by RobWoodCutter | 19 comments »

Customer Service Last year I bought a bunch of Bessey clamps from one of the big online retailers and several of the K-body’s came pourly package and thus several clamps came in damaged. I contacted them and they sent some replacement parts. About a month ago I purchased some of the longer Bessey’s K-Bodys from the same online retails and they too came with pour packaging and had some damage. The online retailer offered a small credit if I chose to keep them or I could send th...

Fastcap pocket chisels

Fastcap pocket chisels

1919 days ago by PirateOfCatan | 1 comment »

I bought three of the four sizes and have enjoyed all of them. The four sizes are 1/4”, 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” with a sharpener in the same folding style. I had to skip on the 1” because shipping needed to be included in the budget. They have been put through tough knots and soft woods mostly. The soft woods (pine, poplar and old weathered pressure treated) cut nice and clean. The edge was not dulled very much by the knots, no visible flattening or nicks (it di...
