Angle Checker

Angle Checker

09-20-2011 06:18 PM by Don W | 10 comments »

I bought this angle checker being I was ordering a bunch of other stuff from Woodcraft. I’ve seen these almost everywhere so I figured it would be handy to have at my sharpening bench. Bottom line, it just doesn’t work. When you slide a plane blade in (even a thick iron) it goes into the hole cut at the end so the angle of the blade really doesn’t register. You can pull it back some and “eye ball” it, but if your going to eye ball it, you might as well just use a...

Indeed a great tool

Indeed a great tool

Given that when available I like USA or German made tools, I researched this tool on the Web and found nothing available. The LION Pootatuck has been dicontinued and it appears all stock depleted. Not even a used one on e-bay. Went ahead and order one from Grizzly and was plesantly surprised by the quality of this tool.It was right on the money for both the 45 and 90 degrees preset on the right and left sides.Not that is hard to calibrate it if you need to, but I have several highly accura...

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

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...

Safety has become too easy

Safety has become too easy

I have been using a miter slot feather board on my table saw for some time now and call me lazy, half of the time I would not use it. Trying to set up for a single cut ripping sawmill lumber with one straight edge was such a hassle I quit doing it. I am a one man shop and the time it would take me to set up the old feather board I could rip 2 boards and for me that was too much. Lets jump forward to last night. I am working on a project that required crown molding and someone, I, forgot t...

I don’t have a single new power tool in my shop. I have inherited quite a collection and what I don’t have i like to buy from craigslist / ebay. This means that I do a lot of cleaning up and rust removing. So far I have bought a ridged contractor table saw circa 2000 a delta homecraft jointer circa 1950. As you can Imagine they didn’t run so smooth at first. The table saw had been rusting in an aircraft hanger for a few years and had a light coating of rust on everything....

To Infinity and Beyond

The 50T Infinity Combomax is the best 50 tooth combination blade I’ve tried to date. This is an extraordinarily well made blade that uses a unique ATB/R configuration that features a chamfered raker instead of the traditional flat top raker. It has very low tearout for this class of blade, and is particularly good in sheetgoods, while maintaining good ripping abilities due to it’s 12° hook. Any blade that’s designed to do multiple tasks has some inherent compromise relati...

I love this blade!

I love this blade!

In my shop i like things to match. bookmatched especially. and one of my favorite things in the world is projects from all one slab of wood. so naturally i do ALOT a resawing. so for that i need a good resaw blade. This blade really fulfills my need too! I have a 14” bandsaw with the riser block so for resawing i got for the 105” 3 tpi by 3/4” blade. these blades have hook teeth which is very aggressive but also leaves a pretty nice finish. not glue ready by any means but go...
