I got this for $15, and i over paid. It doesn’t hold onto the blades because they keep falling out no matter how much I tighten the set screws. It doesn’t cut straight. Now, it doesn’t even work. I think I didn’t have it for 6 months when it stopped working. Well, sometimes it works when I slam it against a concrete surface, hard. So if you have one project you need a jigsaw for, but you don’t need super accurate cuts, this would be fine. It’s $20 ...

Pneuhook - If you use a air tools this hook is for you.

I saw this product posted on my friends Facebook page and noticed all the positive responses so I checked out the website. The video on the site was pretty good and showed how the hook can be used with all air nail guns. I noticed they were in some local stores on Cape Cod. After I could feel the thing and see that it was made well I grabbed one to try for myself to see if it was as easy as the the video made it look. I figured I could always return it. It turns out I really like itR...

The Real Thing At Last.

The Real Thing At Last.

I have experimented with a fair number of sharpening methods. I bought a Tormek years ago so the primary bevel was never an issue. The goal was producing a razor sharp secondary bevel quickly and easily. I had given natural stones a whirl, buying two Pro Edge brands stones – a Hard White Arkansas and a fine Hard Black Arkansas. Neither stone cut worth a Damn – period. So, I pretty much gave up on naturals and invested in Japanese waterstones and have a respectable set of g...

Bosch 4100 left and rear extensions

Bosch 4100 left and rear extensions

05-18-2014 03:29 AM by Holbs | 7 comments »

Wish I had known about these accessories sooner! For the last year, using the bosch 4100 table saw has been great, but these support extensions make me feel much more safer. These 2 extensions are a must have for the few left out there that use the bosch 4100. Granted, these supports do not replace TRUE structure table outfeed supports but for what it is, they are highly acceptable and affordable ($27 each?).

Expensive but Awesome

Expensive but Awesome

I hate emptying the bin on my cyclone, but I hate even more when I forget to and fill my filters with dust and chips; basically means an evening wasted cleaning out chips from the filters and then multiple rounds of blowing the fine dust out. I have my cyclone in its own room to keep the noise down so I can’t see the bin…I originally had a Oneida Dust Sentry, it was ok but was inconsistent. After moving to a new shop and filling the filters 3 times in a row, I looked for an altern...

Great solution for some of us older folk!

I grew weary swapping reading glasses for safety glasses or trying to wear both at the same time. It really was not conducive to good safety habits. I had seen safety glasses on the internet that had a small magnified “window” and tried them but were pretty useless for general shop work. I did a little homework and found this company that sells safety glasses that magnify the ENTIRE lens. No more trying to contort to see what you are working on. They can be had in several di...

Excellent grinder accessory

Excellent grinder accessory

I got a cheapo 6” bench grinder from Harbor Freight at the same time that I bought my lathe to sharpen my turning tools. It ran just fine with the 2 wheels it came with, but vibrated all over the table with the Norton aluminum oxide wheel that I ordered from Lee Valley. I spent a lot of time messing with the adapter bushings that it came with, trying to get the wheel to run true, but with no luck. Enter the Oneway Balancing System, also purchased from Lee Valley. At first I didn̵...

Clean flat bottom cuts

Clean flat bottom cuts

07-27-2013 11:13 PM by twc | 8 comments »

I am always looking for new more efficient ways to complete my projects. Lately I have been doing a lot of shaker style doors with stub-tenon and groove joinery. That’s where this blade comes in. It makes super clean cuts with perfectly flat bottoms. On their website it is shown cutting tenon shoulders in a single pass. I have not done anything bigger then a stub tenon but I think it would excel at larger tenons as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes to c...

Update 2/3/13- Still like the product. Sears sells tons of accessories at reasonable prices. I still haven’t found any downside to the vacuum. Highly rocommend## About 4 years ago, I bought a Shopvac from Lowes. I cant remember the specs, but it was 10 gallons or so and supposedly 4-5 HP. They were selling them on Black Friday for $40. I actually like the vacuum pretty well and felt it was a good value. So when Lowes had the same vac on sale the following year, I bought a...
