Sabel Block Roller

Sabel Block Roller

If you ever have occasion to use masking/packing tape as a glue up clamp technique on miters or otherwise, or if you do work with veneer tape from time to time, then you just might like to have this tool in your box. Plastic laminates and general veneering are other regular uses for this roller. This is a bit of a luxury item at first glance, for how much of that type of work do most of us do? The payoff for anyone is in the quality of your work should you use it. Given a quality t...

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

12-11-2014 07:26 AM by chrisworker | 11 comments »

For the longest time I would use my PSI DC1B-XL for my dust collection needs, but since I upgraded my jointer from a 6” to an 8” and my planer from my lunchbox to a new 3hp spiral cutter I have been buying my lumber in the rough from a local dealer. When I started to get my lumber this way I quickly realized I needed a bigger dust collector. I have read numerous reviews from this webpage and others about the HF 2hp dust collector so I grabbed my coupon and off I went to get my b...

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

I’m pretty certain I’m going to catch crap for posting this product for review because it’s not necessarily a woodworking product but I believe that once you hear me out you’ll think twice and be willing to give the product a try. Every wood worker gets boo-boos. It’s in the nature of our passion. I have yet to find a band-aid like product that will sufficiently cover the wound and stay stuck while still being able to use my hands in the motions I require whe...

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

Ridgid Compound Sliding Miter Saw MS1290LZA, Up For Review

01-06-2015 08:28 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

As usual, I’ll give you a teaser and you can check out the rest of the review on my blog. Here’s the gist. For 95% of woodworkers out there this saw is it. It’s a feature packed saw that does a lot of stuff well but falls just a little short in others. For the price, you can’t beat it. I really wanted to absolutely love with saw and have no faults with it, but since it’s a sliding miter saw there is going to be some amount of play. The slop that was in ...

10 years and still going

10 years and still going

10-25-2014 03:06 PM by Canadianteacher | 12 comments »

I am a shop teacher at a middle school in Abbotsford BC. We purchased 8 of these Dewalt scroll saws 10 years ago and have have only had to replace 1 of them (the motor went after 9 years). One more saw is making some funny sounds in its upper arm and will most likely be done soon (I will take the motor and place it in my other saw). The saws get used by grade 6-8 students cutting from 3/4” alder to 1 and 3/4” basswood. I must say that my students are not easy on the saws and I hav...

Just got back from Portland Or. with some Doussie 8/4 planks. Could not believe the stock theyhad, price was fair in my opinion $10 bd/ft. Was a little concerned about crossing border back into Canada, but no problems at all. I have bought a large amount of exotic woods on line which was shipped by post with no problems except cost! Anyone interested in some really nice wood, be sure to check out Gilmer’s in Portland.

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

11-10-2013 07:54 PM by HillbillyShooter | 24 comments »

Some time ago, and without going into details, water got onto the out-feed table of my PowerMatic 60 long bed jointer. I use TopCote (now made by Bostik) on a regular basis to protect my tool tops, but it didn’t help prevent the rust or remove it. I was able to get the “red” rust off with steel wool and Boeshield T-9 Rust and Corrosion Protection. However, a black/gray stain remained which I couldn’t get off. This stain is shown in the second picture above. Recently I learned about a ...

I won’t go into extensive review on this tool as JC did an extended video review of the WS2000 here. It came with 80 and 220 grit slotted discs which are good for medium duty grinding. I tried using the 80 grit solid wheel with the tool guide (coming up from underneath) and although it gave an accurate angle, it was more like grinding with 40 grit. Going to 220, it couldn’t get the grind marks out of the face of the bevel. I eneded up with a polished face with circular marks in...

I wish I had this years ago

I wish I had this years ago

My wife got me a craftsman impact driver for my birthday a while back. I know some people like to pick on craftsman, but I already had their cordless drill and I wanted to stick with interchangeable batteries. I use the 19.2V Ni-Cds. I know a lot of people swear by the Li-Ion, but those cost a lot more money. Now I’ll be able to upgrade in the future if I want, but based on my experience so far, I have no plans to do so. This thing is AWESOME! I can drive a 3” screw into a...

Must Read for the Galoot in all of us

I had been looking to pick this book and while I was at the Sacramento Woodworking show I ordered one from the Lee Valley booth. They had a nice discount on the book and the shipping was free. Chris Schwarz is one of my favorite woodworking authors. He is the editor for Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine. He also has an excellent blog that covers all forms of furnature building, workbench and hand tool topics. He also has produced a number of excellent handplane, tool and ...
