A highly versatile and accurate tool

A highly versatile and accurate tool

08-16-2010 07:34 PM by Mark Colan | 2 comments »

[This is a repost of a review I wrote and posted on Amazon in June. If you find it useful, I would appreciate a visit to the Amazon review and click “Yes” for useful.] WHAT KIND OF PRECISION DO YOU NEED? A house framer once told me “there’s no such thing as an eighth of an inch.” A friend who has a metal shop told me that accuracy of 1/100 inch is useless for his work. So what accuracy do YOU need? It depends on the kind of work you are doing. Wood exp...

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...

Fastcap pocket chisels

Fastcap pocket chisels

04-29-2009 04:12 PM 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...

New Parallel clamps from Bessey

New Parallel clamps from Bessey

03-20-2009 08:06 PM by Tony | 6 comments »

I recently purchased quite a few of these clamps – see my blog http://lumberjocks.com/topics/5240. These clamps are the next progression of the old K.Body clamp from Bessey and are available in 8 sizes from 300 mm (12”) to 2500mm (98”). I found the clamps to have a professional feel of German engineering, which gave you confidence when you used them. The clamping pads stay perfectly square and parallel even when full torqued, the non mar pads are very effective on semi h...

Grizzly “G0636X – 17 Inch Ultimate” Bandsaw Review

Grizzly “G0636X – 17 Inch Ultimate” Bandsaw Review

01-04-2016 02:42 AM by JBrow | 20 comments »

The first post to Lumberjocks was this review, which I posted in the Forum, Under Tools etc. It was recommended that I re-post this review in the Review section of Lumberjocks. Purchase. I have been woodworking as a hobby since 1985, but never owned a bandsaw – until now. Previously, I re-sawed on the table saw and used the jig saw & router for curved cuts. Before making my bandsaw purchase, I saved my money and researched bandsaws. I considered 14” to 19” bandsaws from every manufact...

FastCap Fastbreak

FastCap Fastbreak

08-13-2015 12:17 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 2 comments »

Just a quick review.I picked up a FastCap Fastbreak sander the other day at Menards. I an currently building a router cabinet and working on the drawers which will have the plywood edges covered with veneer tape. This little thing is pretty cool. It works great for putting on a slight bevel on the veneer let alone cleaning up the edges of the bare plywood. It really makes short work of treating the edges. I highly recommend this.

The best book on power-tool joinery

The best book on power-tool joinery

06-01-2008 07:57 PM by Loren | 6 comments »

I have a lot of woodworking books. About 60 of them. Yeung Chan’s book is one of the best and most practicalof them all. He shows several ways to make each jointso even with a modestly equipped shop you’ll be ableto make quality joints. Yeung’s jig designs are great too. They aren’t complicatedor hard to build and he explains how to make sure theyare accurate. Gary Rogowski also wrote some great books about making joints – but if you get just one get ...

So far, not real impressed with the whole new Grizzly lathe thing. To began with, it was supposed to come to Clarkston Wa, (300 miles from Seattle). Instead it was miss directed by Fedex and ended up in Denver CO. (900 miles the wrong way!) A week latter I get a beat up box, with a heavily scratched up lathe, ( all the blocking for securing it was broke lose). but as for the mechanical parts, it was or seem to be all in working order. I spent several hours, cleaning, leveling an...
