Great, and inexpensive

06-28-2014 06:04 PM by Goodsh | 11 comments »

Bought this saw for $30 about 6 months ago. It is great. Cuts super fast in all types of wood often without tear out and is very easy to use. I use it for both crosscuts and rip cuts and it produces fine results in both. The blade is solid and tight in the handle. The handle is a little cheap – it’s basically just a dowel but for $30 bucks I wouldn’t expect much more. This saw is great. To be honest I much prefer this over the Veritas rip carcass saw I got for more than doub...

For christmas my Grampa came and as a big present upgraded my shop. He bought me a craftsman stool and a kreg pocket hole jig. The craftsman stool was the first thing I saw and I loved it. Its ajustible so you can raise and lower the stool. Its $49.99 regular but he said he got it on sale for $29.99! Its a great stool and highly recomend it. 5 Stars. AJ

Gunning for Shop Safety and Comfort

Gunning for Shop Safety and Comfort

09-07-2013 06:01 AM by DeLayne Peck | 14 comments »

When you have a tricky cut on the table saw, both hands on a router or lathe tool – you can count on it – that’s when a fly will start biting. And, that’s when I stop and reach for the Bug-A-Salt. Biting insects are a serious distraction and a matter of shop safety and comfort. What’s a Bug-A-Salt? It is a lot of fun, but not a toy. It’s a high quality plastic, pump-action mini shotgun. A top fill container holds a couple table spoons of table salt....

Wow, talk about misleading ratings

Wow, talk about misleading ratings

01-02-2015 07:48 PM by philba | 20 comments »

I have yet to use this product but was struck by their labeling when I opened it up. The first picture shows the outside of the box clearly stating 15A current capacity. The second picture shows the inside where the device itself says 12A and the sticker says 9A. No where on the outside does it say 9 (or even 12) amps. While I get that ratings can change, having 3 different ratings is disturbing. I think it’s really bad when the outside says one thing but the inside says another. T...

Circa 1850 Try Plane

Circa 1850 Try Plane

01-31-2011 03:23 AM by Dave | 19 comments »

I was in need of a joiner plane. I had come across this plane at a antiques shop in MS. For a grand total of $27.00. It needed a little work. The mouth was missing a chunk in front of it. On the blade is stamped [dwights french and co.]. On the nose of the plane is stamped [H. J. Nazero and co. of Milwaukee]. And all over the plane is stamped [B. F. Pfeiffer]. Doing some internet research. I can place the manufacture of the blade and the plane between 1850-60.Now with a piece of red oak. I r...

The best sanders you will ever use.

The best sanders you will ever use.

I first saw these at a woodworking in California about 8-9 years ago and bought a set that included threegrits. I was first attracted by the way they sanded endgrain. Using the coarse grit you can sand a 1/4” radius on the end of a 2×4 in about 30 seconds. They are incredible. They work best on the edges ofwood but can also be used on flat surfaces. They have a sanding surface made of tungsten carbide and will almost last you a lifetime. After 8-9 years thecenter of my fine grit...

I finally broke down and purchased a drum sander while Jet was having a 15% off sale. After reading the reviews here and elsewhere I decided to go with the 16-32. I had zero issues with tracking on the belt and leveling the drum was pretty straight forward. I spent about 2 hours setting it up and testing it out. I added a set of locking casters to make it mobile. I usually spend a couple of hours leveling a glue up by hand when making cutting boards. This sander has saved me around 8hrs o...

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.

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface:  Evaluation and Testing

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface: Evaluation and Testing

09-27-2012 05:37 PM by djg | 6 comments »

The DC1100 PRO (with Serial Interface) is a true laser particle counter with the ability to count particulate mater suspended the air. There are two size ranges for the PRO model: between 0.5 and 2.5 microns, and greater than 2.5 microns. Several models are available but I felt that for a woodworking shop the stuff less than 2.5 microns was the most important particulate to measure since it is probably the most dangerous. This was purchased through a group buy offered by the Canadian woo...
