Erecta-rack modular drying racks

Erecta-rack modular drying racks

02-18-2011 04:23 PM by Steve2 | 7 comments »

Industry and trade shows include steel rolling and other racks for drying painted (sprayed) panels, cabinet doors, or simply flat works products. Typical steel rolling racks cost $200 and upward, require appreciable floor space, particularly if used infrequently making them unsuitable for the hobbyists. The August IWF industry show in Atlanta unveiled a new product that solved this need for the small user. See Erecta-rack.com I have no connection to or vested interest in this company, t...

Great Japanese water stones at a good price!!

Great Japanese water stones at a good price!!

07-18-2013 03:53 AM by CypressAndPine | 6 comments »

I just received my set of Naniwa Super Stones. I got a 1000, 3000, & 8000 grit stone. I also got the Norton flattening stone. The stones were very flat and ready to use out the box. They come mounted in a cheap plastic base, but it seems sufficient. The supposed advantage of the superstones is that they don’t need to pre-soak. You just add water and sharpen. I purchased them from Sharpening Supplies online. I paid about $140 for the set. I immediately sharpened my #4 bailey p...

New Fence

New Fence

01-24-2013 03:54 AM by Steve | 2 comments »

Well finally picked up my fence and rails for my General cabinet saw. Was a little dissapointed when I had to start removing parts from it and straightening them out in my vise. The measuring tape that sticks onto the front rail was all creased, and the backing tape that comes on it was half peeled off. The bolts that anchor the rails onto the table seemed a little light, and the melamine extension table that comes with it was not truely flat. All in all it is all mounted and set up so I can ...

I was looking for a power carver the other day and much to my suprise they are rather expensive. I got to thinking about what tool could I adapt. I went to Menards and was looking around at different tools and came accorss the Tool Shop Engraver, variable strokes per minute from 4200 to 7200, for 9.99 how could I go wrong. I got it home and discovered the carbide cutter is held in with a set screw. I removed the cutter and began thinking what could I use for a chisels. I had purched from Flee...

“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics”  By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

If you are interested in carving Woodspirits, and do not want to buy an entire library on the subject or you are looking for your first book on the subject—buy this book. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the most comprehensive book I have read or own, on the subject. I have all sorts of Woodspirit books, from a variety of publishers, and authors. It seems to me that no book ever has all the information I need – until now. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the abs...

Woodworkingprofits.com website is bad. Really bad.

Yep, I got taken. Well, to be fair, I received what I paid for. Perhaps you’ve heard the siren-song of woodworkers showing how you can quit your day job and make $150K per year selling stuff you make in your shop. Well, against my better judgment, in a weak moment I paid the $37 for the book and plans download. If you didn’t have access to the internet and you’d never seen a woodworking forum, then MAYBE there may be some new ideas in here. If you’re a member of this f...

Exceptionally smooth countersinks

Exceptionally smooth countersinks

10-02-2009 03:42 AM by sry | 10 comments »

Woodcraft product page I had always heard that this style produces a very smooth cut, so I decided to pick some up when I was at Woodcraft. I bought the #6, #8, and #10. It really is amazing how smoothly and effortlessly they cut. The second picture I uploaded shows just how smooth these things cut (#10 is shown, but the results are typical). On the far left is the Wood River single flute countersink, middle is one from HD (can’t remember the brand), and right is from a Ryobi c...

Rockler Shelf Pin Drilling Jig (Review)

Rockler Shelf Pin Drilling Jig (Review)

02-03-2014 07:56 PM by Brett | 9 comments »

Have you ever noticed holes , neatly in a row, on the inside of many book cases and cabinets? Have you ever wondered how they might have gotten them so straight, and evenly spaced? Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t. I never really gave it much thought until I decided that I may want to attempt to build something that needed some adjustable shelving. This jig is one way that a do-it-yourselfer may be able to add those adjustable shelves to your project! It is a shelf pin drillin...

General International 10" Helical head jointer.

General International 10" Helical head jointer.

07-09-2015 04:51 AM by Steve | 3 comments »

Tried my jointer for the first time, everything good except one bolt and washer was loose holding the pulley onto the shaft driving the head. It actually fell out and after 5 minutes of looking where it came from, replaced it and continued jointing. The safety guard over the head has a spring on a shaft that should return the guard after the wood has passed through, it did not really work so good so I preloaded the spring a little and sprayed a little WD-40 on the pin and everything worke...
