X-Horse ---They're BACK

02-09-2010 04:17 AM by Scott Oldre | 5 comments »

I did a review on this indispensible tool a few months back. It appeared at the that these were unfortunately dropped from Home Depots inventory. That was a sad day even for someone that already has two of them. Well wandering through HD’s isles the other day, I found a whole stack of them. The ones I have use aluminum pillars, whereas the new ones are using heavy plastic. I doubt the difference has any effect on the sturdiness of the stand/bench but I do like the pretty alumin...

Whiteside Combination Compression Bit

Whiteside Combination Compression Bit

12-16-2014 11:46 PM by Greg..the Cajun Wood Artist | 15 comments »

I have a good number of router bits for different purposes that I have accumulated over the years…some good and some not so good. I have been looking at this spiral combo bit from Whiteside for a while…hoping it would go on sale…but it never seemed to…so and finally decided to buy it. I have given it a good workout before writing this review because it is not my everyday bit and isn’t cheap at $149. I’ve used it in my router table and also with a handhe...

It worked good three times.....just not in a row

It worked good three times.....just not in a row

02-11-2014 08:45 PM by jakeprater | 12 comments »

I bought this back in December, and it worked great right out of the box. It has a nice fit and finish, and doesn’t feel like cheap plastic. I like the rubber handgrip. The mail tray feels a little light weight, but it functions smoothly, so no real issue there. I also bought Bostich 1 inch nails to go with it – I tried not to skimp too much. So I opened it up, put a few drops of oil in the inlet, and a couple in the oil slot on the front, and hooked it up to my comp...

Jack Rabbit deluxe - SHIPPING cost

11-05-2010 08:03 PM by ken_c | 8 comments »

So I was going to order a Jack Rabbit deluxe direct from Jack Rabbit Tool, so $46 is a fair price from what I can gather but when I went to place the order and i got to the shipping information portion there was one option – Shipping or Not and the price from Washington to Michigan – hold on to you coffee – $31 !!! $31 for a package that can easily go into a $5 USPS standard box – No thank you Jack Rabbit!!! I guess I will just replace my broken well used Rockler I...

Best kept cleaning secret

Best kept cleaning secret

04-04-2010 02:01 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 24 comments »

Stop wasting your money on those so-called cleaners that require you to mortgage your tools just to get few ounces of water and soap in a fancy package. EASY-OFF has been around a long time with a proven track record.It comes in several different skin removing flavors and I guarantee you’ll be amazed at the results.It’ll make your saw blades; router bits, forstner bits and anything that can’t be recognized anymore look like it’s brand new.Oh yeah, make sure you wear gloves.

Great mid range dust collecter.

06-01-2010 06:55 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 7 comments »

I wanted to upgrade my dust collection for a shop vac to the real deal.I always trust delta machinery so I thought this was a good way to go. I headed right over to woodcraft and I saw this shiny beast. I purchased it that day along with the appropriate fittings and hoses. woodcraft has an amazing supply of dust collection accessories I might add!I got home and began to assemble the unit. There is a moderate amount of assembly but the instructions for once are actually helpful. I would sugges...

“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...

Belt failure resulting in expensive repair

Belt failure resulting in expensive repair

06-20-2010 03:12 PM by MitchSaginaw | 14 comments »

I am writing to warn the readers that I had to replace the drive belt internal to my Porter Cable 371 belt sander after only 4 months of use. This is a great tool for the shop for its compact size and ability to remove material fast with good control. The problem is that the unit appeared to overheat and the belt came apart. I took it to a warranty center expecting to have it repaired under warranty but found out it was not covered and the repair cost $49.92. ($11 for the belt and the...

Worth Every Penny

Worth Every Penny

12-31-2008 01:27 AM by Tomcat1066 | 4 comments »

I gotta have my music. In fact, for some reason I concentrate better when I have music going than when I don’t. However, with the scream of power tools, it can get lost. Not only that, but something has to help pass the time when sanding! Well, the Work Tune does the job just fine. I picked this one up for $50 from Lowe’s with some Christmas money, and I’m thrilled with it. First the hearing protection: It works great. I can hear the scream of the machines, but n...
