Hole in hollow door

Hole in hollow door

I was freaking out about a crazy shaped hole on my door that I had to fix cheaply myself and as fast as possible (before tomorrow).Luckily the guys at my local hardware store were no strangers to holes in doors and confidently suggested i try this product. It was cheap, and all I needed was this, fine grit sand paper and paint (which i have) as well as a cheap plastic putty knife. This picture shown is just one application. As you can see the damage was pretty intense and I pretty much h...

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...

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

03-02-2012 03:29 AM by Pete_Jud | 6 comments »

Received this today, and mounted it up to a PC 690 D handle router. It’s kind of one of my “go to” routers in the shop. It was thicker than I expected, with a larger hole to be able to use larger bits than the Rockler clear insert that I had been using on this router, so it will not be able to use standard PC insert guides, and that”s ok with me as I have other plates to use. The laser was “dead nuts” on using a 45 V grove bit, But the feature I like the...

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

07-20-2009 06:09 PM by ShannonRogers | 4 comments »

I took a trip up to Chester County, PA this weekend to take a class with Chuck Bender’s school, The Acanthus Workshop. Chuck goes by the handle Acanthuscarver here on LJ. What a treat! I have been woodworking now for 7 years and hardly do I think of myself as an expert, but I admit to being a little dubious as to how much I would get out of a fundamentals I class. Because the focus was on hand tools, I was more optimistic because I am pretty new to the way of the Schwarz having R...

It's made of plastic !

I use my digital calipers a lot and I tend to be hard on them. I’ve dropped them and poured stuff on them and it seems like I am buying new ones often. I saw this particular caliper on sale for half price – only $14.99. I didn’t need one at the time, but I know that I will eventually need another one so “why not?”. I never imagined that it would be made of plastic. It has a very cheap, flimsy feel to it and it does not have the normal little turn whe...

Kreg True flex featherboard.

Kreg True flex featherboard.

12-25-2012 09:06 PM by AJswoodshop | 11 comments »

For Christmas I asked for a featherboard. Before I got the featherboard I was using two pushsticks. One to hold the workpiece against the fence, and the other to push it through the saw. It worked well but it was a little uncomfortable. The Kreg true flex featherboard fixed all of those problems. The fingers on the featherboard push the workpiece tight against the fence, and it can adjust to fit the width of you workpiece. It can fit almost every T-slot, and runner track. It’s great for...

This DVD impressed me, where some of his others have not. I learned that I have been wasting time by failing to follow these methods, and I am eager to try them out to see what difference it will make. The 65 minutes covers hand planing, mortise and tenons, rabbets and fillisters, joinery and curved work, all employing the Coarse, Medium and Fine methods. From the DVD back cover: ”Most woodworking projects involve roughing, refining and finishing operations. In this DVD, Chr...

Sabel Block Roller

Sabel Block Roller

If you ever have occasion to use masking/packing tape as a glue up clamp technique on miters or otherwise, or if you do work with veneer tape from time to time, then you just might like to have this tool in your box. Plastic laminates and general veneering are other regular uses for this roller. This is a bit of a luxury item at first glance, for how much of that type of work do most of us do? The payoff for anyone is in the quality of your work should you use it. Given a quality t...

I had this machine shipped from Grizzly several months ago. The shipping was timely arriving in just three business days! The machine was everything I hoped for. The tables were dead flat. They adjusted to absolute coplanar. And the machine was very powerful. I had an 1×8” hard maple board set aside just to test this machine and it trued it lickety split. I’ve been using it for months now and am very happy with this purchase. It trues up stock square and smoot...
