Citristrip stripping gel

Citristrip stripping gel

05-22-2012 02:10 AM by dbol | 3 comments »

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.

Does the job, except dust collection

Does the job, except dust collection

11-30-2015 01:13 PM by whope | 3 comments »

I’m making a bunch of chopsticks (72 pairs) for Christmas. I decided that my Rigid sander was going to be too akward to do so many and after reading some reviews, I picked up this little machine. I had to order it as none of the Big Blue Box Stores in my area carried one in stock. I was home when it was delivered and heard a crash as the driver of the Brown Truck dropped it in the truck. Sigh. I opened the garage so he wouldn’t have to carry it up the stairs to my front door. O...

Fastcap pocket chisels

Fastcap pocket chisels

04-29-2009 04:12 PM 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...

A fun joinery plane

A fun joinery plane

04-30-2008 06:23 AM by johnjoiner | 14 comments »

First off, I’ll point out that I have nothing to compare this to. I have never used any other plow plane, and have little experience with any other kinds of joinery planes. This is easy and fun to use. No tools are needed to do anything on this. Blade removal and all adjustments are toolless. The only thing I can think of to complain about is access to some of the knobs. I’d say I have average sized hands and fairly dexterous fingers. But I had trouble getting at the knob...

It's a good saw for it's intended use.

It's a good saw for it's intended use.

10-04-2013 10:48 PM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

Ok, I bought one of these.It was a temporary saw and never intended to be my main saw. It is has a certain cool factor to it too. I think this is a great saw for a person who does floor installs and other small on the job carpentry work. All of the accessories are easy to access and held in place quite well. The fence worked, it came with a push stick and a miter but lets face it, a miter fence on most saws is not a top line item and it’s true in this case too. I originally bought this ...

Cheap, flexible, and accurate enough

Cheap, flexible, and accurate enough

08-21-2014 06:47 PM by jshroyer | 5 comments »

I always loose tape measures. I buy another and work really hard to keep it in the same place then loose it. I dont know how its possible all the time. So i decided to go to harbor freight and buy a few of these then buy 1 good one and keep it in a special location (pain in the butt). I just use these for rough cutting and measuring stock. i dont use this if its under 1”. I work as an engineer as we use metric at work. I love having this thing at work. No one will ever steal it becau...

I like I-Box

I like I-Box

01-03-2014 06:46 PM by Kerry Drake | 15 comments »

Got the I-Box for Christmas and finished setting it up yesterday. The pictures show my very first test pieces using a 3/8 inch dado stack. Once you understand what’s going on with the jig, it is very easy to use and it gave me near perfect results on my very first test. Set up takes about 15 minutes out of the box, but it comes with a very good set of instructions and a DVD showing the entire process from beginning to end. For me, now, the hardest part about making really good bo...

Starrett Bimetal Band saw blades

Starrett Bimetal Band saw blades

05-18-2015 11:41 PM by robscastle | 8 comments »

I saw a bi metal blade working at Degoose’s workshop, Larry demomstrated cutting a couple of rips from some timber and the results were very impressive. He cut two runs from a length of timber and produced very accurate results from his band saw fitted with a new Kreg fence. With this in mind I decided to try it for myself on my bandsaw, which BTW is notorious for cutting where ever it wants to, generally not where the operator wants it to go. So I purchased two Blades:-1×224...

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...

Great tools vs. good tools.

Great tools vs. good tools.

01-18-2014 09:44 PM by madts | 7 comments »

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 ...
