(Not So) Straight Edge

(Not So) Straight Edge

02-06-2015 02:20 AM by Hawk_Guy | 19 comments »

I recently purchased an 8” Jointer and cabinet table saw and needed a precision straight edge to properly tune and align my new toys. I have some Woodpeckers products already and am pleased with them (router plates and such)so I had absolutely no reservations about purchasing their product. I received my precision straight edge in a really nice particle board case that had a recess in which laid the straight edge, protected from harm. I took it out and was very pleased with the fit...

I had contacted rhett after seeing a post about evaluating hand planes. Rhett sent me a care package to share with my students. I run a woodworking club for my 7th and 8th grade students. I recieved a completed plane with test shavings, a plane glued up, a kit ready to be glued and some blades and plane body blanks. I want to publically thank Rhett for his generosity and support of my students wodworking journey. The assembled plane worked perfectly after i adjusted the plane after is journey...

It worked good three times.....just not in a row

It worked good three times.....just not in a row

02-11-2014 08:45 PM by jakeprater | 12 comments »

I bought this back in December, and it worked great right out of the box. It has a nice fit and finish, and doesn’t feel like cheap plastic. I like the rubber handgrip. The mail tray feels a little light weight, but it functions smoothly, so no real issue there. I also bought Bostich 1 inch nails to go with it – I tried not to skimp too much. So I opened it up, put a few drops of oil in the inlet, and a couple in the oil slot on the front, and hooked it up to my comp...

Wood Owl Tri-Cut Auger Bit

Wood Owl Tri-Cut Auger Bit

11-12-2013 01:47 AM by CL810 | 7 comments »

I purchased this bit from Traditional Woodworker to bore holdfast holes in my workbench. It is by far one of the best drill bits I’ve used. I was drilling holes in a 4.75” thick cherry using my drill press at 500 rpm. The bit pulled itself through the board effortlessly and the holes are perfectly smooth. Same results in maple.

Great storage solution.

Great storage solution.

Looking for someplace out of the way to store all your screws/small hardware? Want to keep the dust out? Well, here is a great solution. They are made by a company called Stack-On. Here you will find their website. They come with 12 compartments with a lid that protects the contents keeping the dust out. The lidsslide back in a little to keep them open as you can see in the second picture. They can also snap shut whenclosed. They can either stand alone or be hung on the wall. I at...

Sand Devil

Sand Devil

11-11-2010 02:05 AM by bluejazz | 5 comments »

I hate sanding. Among woodworkers of course, that about is as unique an impression as ‘Hitler was a bad guy’. This tool truly does make sanding easier. First off, cutting sandpaper and getting it into my 3M sanding block was a major pain. I’m sure there are better choices than 3M in sanding blocks and making your own is an option. But this Sand Devil has been a huge improvement for me. First off even with my Sandpaper cutting jig, cutting to size is burdensome if ...

A Woodworkers Encyclopedia for a penny?

A Woodworkers Encyclopedia for a penny?

04-29-2009 10:54 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 15 comments »

Author: Nick Engler. I’ll bet a lot of seasoned LJ’s already know about this book but many others won’t so here goes. So, you’re relatively new to woodworking and you want to know which of the seven types of chisels and firmer gouges you have. In this book you can see a picture of each, and explanation of what each is and how it’s used and sure enough a picture of yours. You’ve got paring chisels, the type to be pushed with your hands not a mallet.Or, yo...

Self Centering Drill Bits - Installing Kreg tracks for clamping, jigs

Self Centering Drill Bits - Installing Kreg tracks for clamping, jigs

02-07-2014 08:24 PM by darthford | 11 comments »

So I needed to install 5 of these Kreg tracks in my new RAS table, 5×6 screws each for a total of 30 screws. The screws need to be centered and flush (not sticking up half crooked) so you can slide the clamp bolts in the track. There’s little to no room for error. I was still contemplating how to at least center punch them when I was wandering the hardware store and spied these Isomax self centering hinge drill bits, brilliant! Do they do exactly what they advertise, yep! It mad...

Gator Grit 40 grit 5 inch sanding discs

Gator Grit 40 grit 5 inch sanding discs

09-29-2013 06:35 AM by Purrmaster | 7 comments »

Let’s get a couple of things out of the way first: Yes, I start sanding with 40 grit. Yes, this is insane. I find myself often having to sand out screwups on my projects and the rougher the sanding grit the faster I can sand it out. I got these discs at Lowe’s. I normally got the Shop Smith 40 grit discs but they were out of them this time. So I bought a 50 pack. So far I’ve gone at least dozen of them over a period of several months, on different woods. Ther...

Milescraft push stick kit

Milescraft push stick kit

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review on the milescraft push stick kit. In episode 22 I built a push stick and that worked pretty good but I always had a hard time getting the wood to go straight against the fence. I got this push stick kit from milescraft .You get a depth gauge and a base with the push stick. The way it is designed you have a lot downward pressure which helps to control the wood much better then the one I used to use.
