Handy Shop Stools

07-20-2012 03:03 PM by AJswoodshop | 8 comments »

For christmas my Grampa came and as a big present upgraded my shop. He bought me a craftsman stool and a kreg pocket hole jig. The craftsman stool was the first thing I saw and I loved it. Its ajustible so you can raise and lower the stool. Its $49.99 regular but he said he got it on sale for $29.99! Its a great stool and highly recomend it. 5 Stars. AJ

Just the ticket for those difficult sanding tasks

Just the ticket for those difficult sanding tasks

07-28-2008 04:08 AM by Sawdust2 | 10 comments »

Saturday morning I was lying in bed and on the TV was the lovely Jodi Marks touting the MultiMaster. Now, it’s difficult not to do what Jody says, she being all wonderful and woodworky. And my wife had already decided that we (I) were (was) going to refinish the kitchen table (as opposed to the dining room table). You can see it in the photo. This top is veneered out of some unidentified wood that looks like a cross between birch, maple and European Beech. But the edging was shaped w...

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig is Sturdy and Easy to Adjust.

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig is Sturdy and Easy to Adjust.

03-31-2011 03:00 AM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

The 4210 dovetail jig is easy to use, and the template is thick aluminum. Most other jigs in the $100 price range seem flimsy or use plastic templates. I was impressed how large and heavy this jig is. The included dovetail jig and bushing let you get right to work – no more trips to the specialty woodworking stores. The bit is carbide tipped, and very sharp. It is 1/2” shank and cuts effortlessly. I found the jig in stock at Lowes. By by 4th try I was cutting perfect doveta...

Great product, even better support!

Great product, even better support!

06-22-2011 02:44 AM by felkadelic | 5 comments »

I originally picked this up last fall at Rockler, at a significant discount from the $84.99 MSRP (I believe I got it for $49.99). At the time, I didn’t have a table saw with a standard miter slot, so I was only able to use this on my router table for routing the end of pieces. While it worked just fine for that task, I held off judgment until getting a table saw so that I could use this for its main intended purpose. A couple weeks ago I got a new (to me) Unisaw and was finally abl...

I love this jointer

I love this jointer

I love this Grizzly Jointer. I have a small shop and the size of this machine is perfect. The spiral cutter – head is worth every penny. I gave 4 stars because, I requested the lift gate service. UPS Freight called me and scheduled an appointment at their convenience for delivery. I scheduled time off work to make the appointment time UPS Freight requested and then UPS Freight blew me off. No call, no notification, no call to reschedule, nothing. UPS freight never showed up. ...

Totally Worth It

Totally Worth It

06-02-2011 07:17 PM by Vrtigo1 | 23 comments »

A little background to give this review some context. I am a beginning WW, been doing it about 18 months now. I am at the point where I am able to appreciate good tools and justify spending money on them. With that being said, blades have never been a high priority for me. I have been using cheap blades from home depot up to now because I didn’t think a hundred dollar blade would make a huge difference in the quality of my work. Well, I found out that I could use my Amex reward p...

Nice little woodworking Calipers for the money

Nice little woodworking Calipers for the money

01-21-2010 08:49 PM by HungryTermite | 4 comments »

I picked up the Cen-Tech 6” Digital Fractional Caliper over the holidays for $25 at Harbor Freight. It seemed like a pretty decent price compared to what I had seen for similar models at other stores. Overall I like it a lot. I have used regular calipers before but this is my first set of digital calipers and I have to say I am never going back. I bought this model because it does fractions but I don’t really use the fractions setting because I tend to think in thousandths of ...

Lithium Ion Power Is Here

Lithium Ion Power Is Here

02-29-2008 11:32 PM by Thuan | 0 comments »

I did my research on these new Lithium-Ion power screwdrivers for their power to weight ratio. After comparing Bosch, Makita and Metabo, I chose the Metabo Powergrip II. It’s small lithium powered battery can be stored for months without loosing a charge. It’s small 1.6 lb size makes is fits that kitchen drawer even though it is built for tough professional use. The aluminum housing, and rubber grip, gives it s solid feel. At 7.2 volts, the battery is not as powerful as other brands, but ...

Better drill than I expected, serviceable impact driver, so-so radio

Better drill than I expected, serviceable impact driver, so-so radio

08-29-2014 11:47 PM by Dan Lyke | 8 comments »

This is not a brand I would have ever expected to have in my shop, but… From my Twitter stream, on April 30th 2014 I got a follow from @RIDGIDPower, and said I’d be an unlikely customer. Surprising me, they engaged! We sent email back and forth, their rep offered to send me a battery powered tool combo kit with a drill, impact driver, and radio. I actually declined, on the basis that I didn’t need another set of chargers and batteries in my shop, but by that point the box wa...
