Citristrip stripping gel

Using this on my jointer rebuild. It works really good on metal but not sure on how it works on wood.You need to take your time let the product do the work and be patient. I scrubbed it after letting it sit. If you dont get it all of you may need to put a little more on and let that sit. A little paint thinner will help clean it up also.Good luck if you need to strip something.

I am making the transition to more handwork and want to master (or come close to it) hand cut dovetails. Since I recently fell in love with my Japanese Ryoba that’s been collecting dust for years (here’s a great review on it http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/129 ), I unilaterally decided to turn Japanese … I mean pull it … the saw that is… errr, nevermind. Lee Valley has this saw for a lower price than replacement blades on their other saws, I thought it looked l...

Sweet little tool

This is one of those tools that you buy for specific uses, so naturally I hemmed and haw for a while before purchasing. Over the last few months I have experienced using the Fein tool from time to time on different job sites. Once you use this type of tool you under stand the convenience, instead of breaking out you Japanese saw. I’m not one for long winded review, but I will say this Bosch always makes a quality tool and the quality, power and easy of use are on point with the Fein plus it...

Couldn't figure out how to make them so I bought them

Couldn't figure out how to make them so I bought them

Since the Ridgid R5412 is such a popular saw, I figured I would review these. They are available everywhere online – woodcraft, Amazon, rockler, etc. Woodcraft has them in the store as well. Because of the design of this saw’s throat insert, it’s really hard to make your own. After seeing how these are crafted, I don’t think I could safely make one. LikesBoth of these are very well made. The instructions included are clear, and I don’t think they are outrageo...

Great tools vs. good tools.

Great tools vs. good tools.

I got a fair amount of good Brownie points at amazon during Christmas, that I decided to spring the plunger on a Tormek T-3. I have had lots of problems here in Houston, working in a 2-car garage with all the humidity, to keep my tools sharp. Sharpen one day rusty the next. I have been using scary sharp, diamond stones, but I spent most of my time with dull tools. Not any more.I have spent a couple of days getting all the tools that need sharping out of the garage and cleaned them up.Then ...

Lots of room for improvement

There are two aspects to this review. The first is regarding the premium subscription experience with WWGOA itself and the second is specific to the “How to build a stylish stool” plan (which requires premium membership). First, if you Google WWGOA to find out more about it you will extensive references to a business practice it had a few years ago of buying names and addresses from woodworking supply companies and then sending unsolicited DVD’s and then sending invoices ...

I suggested some time ago that Lee Valley carry luthier’s binding tape, as it has usefulness for many of us on a day to day basis. After some searching they were able to track down a supplier and have offered it for sale on their store. Here’s an example of I use it in the guitar shop: This tape is quite simply indispensable for any woodworker and likely most home’s toolbox. The tape is strong enough to wrap around a joint and not break, while having some elasticit...

Really nice sander

Really nice sander

I needed to get a sander that hooks right in to my shop vac. My old craftsman doesn’t.I got this at Home depot based on review there. What a difference! You can hardly feel it vibrate, dust collection is superb, variable speed. I can’t believe I suffered with that old craftsman all these years. I’m not a big brand loyalist and had the Dewalt and PC in my hands but decided to give this a try as my Ridgid saw saw has been such a work horse. I’m glad I did. Does anyone k...

This is why I trust Delta machinery :) I hope I am not coming off as a brand snob but this jointer is over 36 years old, AND STILL RUNNING ON THE ORIGINAL KNIVES TO BOOT!!!!!! I picked this up this spring from a guy at work who was getting rid of his shop and moving into a condo for $100 and with only the cord needing replaced from dry rot and rust from being in the basement it performs like it did coming out of the box :) Adding to this Parts are still available along with the Owners manual ...

Great Tool for some tasks

I have been using my Flatmaster drum sander (http://stockroomsupply.ca/shop/drum-sanders/18-flatmaster.html) for 2 years now and thought that I had something yet to add to the previous reviews for this product. Set-up:I purchased my Flatmaster complete with the metal top sans the motor; married it with a NIB – OS Dayton motor. Assembly and motor installation / setup was straight forward and easy enough. That said I had interference between the belt and my housing, the opening in the h...
