Cheapest no-tip track upgrade I can find

Cheapest no-tip track upgrade I can find

05-15-2015 02:35 PM by paxorion | 7 comments »

Ever since the IWF 2014, I have been dying to pick up the new BORA guide systems. After months of hunting and phone calls to BORA, I finally managed to get my hands on the BORA saw plate. The short story is…it’s awesome. Paired with the BORA WTX, this answers the mail on a track system upgrade for my Porter Cable PC15TCSMK. The Good: Works as advertised. The saw guide is (supposedly) compatible with any straight edge guide in the market. I’ve tested it with both t...

MLW Tool Box DVD and Grand Slam Tools 4-PAK Holiday Special

MLW Tool Box DVD and Grand Slam Tools 4-PAK Holiday Special

12-12-2009 04:55 PM by FlWoodRat | 8 comments »

Fellow Lumberjocks, Tommy MacDonald at Major League Woodworking has done it again. Tommy is offering his first MLW DVD and the Grand Slam Tools 4-Pak as a Holiday Special for only $100. I’m very happy to have taken advantage of the opportunity. Yesterday I received my set. As expected, it was impecably packaged. Since Tommy’s 4-Pak (Bench Bat, Marking Gauge and two 1:6 paring blocks) has already been reviewed here, I will focus on the MLW Tool Box Project #1 DVD. The DVD is ...

Ridgid Mobile Miter Saw Stand AC9945, Up For Review

Ridgid Mobile Miter Saw Stand AC9945, Up For Review

12-18-2014 08:10 PM by woodshopmike | 2 comments »

This stand is really great. It’s easy to use, easy to move, and doesn’t rock or move while using the saw. Check out the video of loading and unloading the saw and stand from a pickup. No, it’s not light and if you’re slap outta shape you won’t be able to do this, but for me it sure beats heaving a full size chop saw in and out of a truck bed. The video pretty much hits the big stuff about the stand, but if you wanna read a bit more check out my blog post ...

Best mid sized portable for nail guns

Best mid sized portable for nail guns

09-11-2014 07:56 PM by CyberDyneSystems | 3 comments »

Makita MAC5200: A very well designed easy to use compressor! My shop used to run on a multi-thousand dollar Ingersoll rand 120 gallon 7 horse power 3 phase, 2 stage compressor circa 1969. We stopped using it for spray painting back in the late 1980’s so it’s been overkill for decades.It’s finally on it’s way out, and at the same time our portable Porter Cable Job Boss C3151 has died. Some of my review will directly compare the Makita MAC5200 and the PC Job Boss a...

This is a short pictorial on setting up the Small Plow to cut T&Gs. This is a new-to-me plane, and I took a few pics as I was working out the kinks and having a little play. I hope this helps some of you. Link: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ToolReviews/AccessoryBladesfortheVeritasSmallPlow.html Regards from Perth Derek

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...

Thinking about a thumpin' slab?  This is your book!

Thinking about a thumpin' slab? This is your book!

07-24-2008 03:40 AM by BikerDad | 12 comments »

I picked up this book recently after stumbling across a mention, then a review, then a bunch of raves. I chose to purchase the book directly from Lost Art Press, getting the Deluxe Edition (w/ CD). Their website didn’t want to have anything to do with my credit card, but that simply meant I had to deal directly with a real live and very courteous individual. The verdict on the purchasing experience: the folks at Lost Art Press are a pleasure to deal with. But, you may be wondering...

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

10-25-2014 02:57 PM by JHAstrello | 21 comments »

Like many, I started out buying a few things from Harbor Freight – for the most part because of the perceived ‘Killer Deals’ that they offer. That, and the ability to get their now famous 20% off Super Coupon that can be copied and used for any one piece of product. Here is what I have bought recently, and my experience. HF Dust System – it’s still in the box awaiting installation.HF Benchtop Belt/Disk sanderHF 2 ton Crane – primarily purchased to help m...

Drill Bits & Plug Cutters.

Drill Bits & Plug Cutters.

11-27-2010 05:50 PM by Ken90712 | 8 comments »

I had purchased these bits and cutters a few months ago and now that I have used them for a while I decided to post a review. I have purchased several items in the past from MLCS and so far have not been disappointed. Each set of bits come in a simple little wooden storage box which is a nice touch. So far both sets of bits have performed VERY WELL, and show no signs of wearing. The only drawback and the reason I gave it a 4 stars rating is the box the tapered bits come in. They could of h...

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...
