Easywoodtools faceplate

Easywoodtools faceplate

1175 days ago by hairy | 4 comments »

This deserves more than 5 stars. High quality at a good price. Item F625 I got myself in a situation where I needed 2 faceplates at the same time. The other in the second picture is made by Don Pencil, another very good one. I looked around the web and decided on this one. Woodcraft had it at the exact same price that easywoodtools did, so I cut out the middleman. It was on my front porch almost 24 hours after I ordered it. It came from Lexington, Ky. That’s about a 2 hour driv...

Fastcap pocket chisels

Fastcap pocket chisels

1916 days ago 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...

Pictures for Alba

Pictures for Alba

1340 days ago by Bluepine38 | 10 comments »

I mentioned a cross slide rest to Alba thinking it might help him and his “Jolly Rogues” in some way. He askedme to show some pictures, so here are the pictures and my review, I will do a blog on the rebuild of this wonderful old machine later. The Cross Slide Rest was originally made by Delta to enable people to do metalwork on a lathe. I am a 71 year young craftsman with a slightly hard used body, I just did not think my parts would wear out this quick, so I have a little pro...

Bessey Customer Service - Credit where it is due

Bessey Customer Service - Credit where it is due

1278 days ago by RobWoodCutter | 19 comments »

Customer Service Last year I bought a bunch of Bessey clamps from one of the big online retailers and several of the K-body’s came pourly package and thus several clamps came in damaged. I contacted them and they sent some replacement parts. About a month ago I purchased some of the longer Bessey’s K-Bodys from the same online retails and they too came with pour packaging and had some damage. The online retailer offered a small credit if I chose to keep them or I could send th...

Some Knife!

Some Knife!

717 days ago by mpounders | 3 comments »

I really didn’t need another knife, but I have wondered how I might like a scimitar shape blade and I have admired the knives that Brandant Robinson makes. I was on his website and happened to see he had one of his catapiller style knives available, so I decided to order it while my wife was agreeable! This was on Saturday, a little before noon. I had recieved an email from Brandant confirming my order and saying it had been shipped in less than 2 hours! On a Saturday no less! He had h...

A great little tool

A great little tool

2387 days ago by GaryK | 17 comments »

Here’s a great little tool for setting the angle on most everything. Bandsaw, Tablesaw, Mitersaw, Radial Arm Saw… The best part is the precision and speed in which you can do it.There are magnets on the bottom which allows you to stick it to anything steel. I will use a table saw for example here, but you can apply the same to all tools.If what you are trying to set is aluminum or something other than steel then you will need tohold it place. Here are the magnets:..For...

Freeman 23 Gauge Pinner

Freeman 23 Gauge Pinner

313 days ago by MarkwithaK | 6 comments »

I’m not usually one to add tool reviews simply because just about everything I’ve either researched and/or bought has already been reviewed at least once….except for Freeman nail guns. I guess I didn’t actually NEED a 23 gauge nailer but I sure as hell WANTED one, I just couldn’t justify the typical $100+ price tags that the well known units were commanding. I found the Freeman for just a hair over $50 through Amazon and pulled the trigger (no pun intended). ...

Jet Parallel Clamp

Jet Parallel Clamp

1750 days ago by alaskan79 | 9 comments »

I got a pair of 12” clamps last winter and they are really nice. I was using pipe clamps and was having trouble with my glue ups not staying flush. I was getting a lot of cup and would have to clamp some 2 X 2 on each end to stop it from happening. I got these clamps and now I don’t have that problem. About a month ago I got a pair of 31” because the 12” where a little short for some of my glue ups. I really like them also. Really easy to move the movable jaw on the ba...

A good product for a craftsman .113

A good product for a craftsman .113

722 days ago by Tedstor | 6 comments »

A won’t go too in-deepth here. Its a pretty simple product and it works well. The insert has 4 leveling screws to adjust flush with the table top. It also has adjustable screws in the top/side to prevent any lateral movement (see pic). The insert actually fit pretty well out of the box. After about 2 minutes worth of adjustments, it was dead-on. Seems to be good quality and I have no reason to think it won’t last for years. I’ll probably buy two more for dado and thicker, cr...

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

1955 days ago by knotscott | 4 comments »

Even for a first timer, this inlay kit worked flawlessly as advertised. Using just basic router skills, it couldn’t be much simpler. Put the bit and the guide bushing in the router, trace the template to cut the receiving hole, add the spacer to trace out the inlay with the same template, cut the inlay piece free from the stock, and place it in the complimenting cutout hole. Some sanding may be required to make everything flush, and a practice run is always a good idea. The tip of the ...
