Exceptionally smooth countersinks

Exceptionally smooth countersinks

10-02-2009 03:42 AM by sry | 10 comments »

Woodcraft product page I had always heard that this style produces a very smooth cut, so I decided to pick some up when I was at Woodcraft. I bought the #6, #8, and #10. It really is amazing how smoothly and effortlessly they cut. The second picture I uploaded shows just how smooth these things cut (#10 is shown, but the results are typical). On the far left is the Wood River single flute countersink, middle is one from HD (can’t remember the brand), and right is from a Ryobi c...

Great Product (after you modify them)

Great Product (after you modify them)

11-22-2009 02:01 AM by SteveMI | 4 comments »

I got a used TS couple monts ago that was an upgrade to me. It has the standard 3/4” miter slots in the cast iron table unlike my prior aluminum. So, while browsing the local Woodcraft for feather boards I saw the JessEm and thought to give them a try. Today I had a chance to actually use them and found they are a great product, but are having some manufacturing problems. The key to the design are some rectangle head bolts that slide in slots molded in the plastic feather boards a...

I'm Loving It Already

I'm Loving It Already

I have to give two thumbs up to the Makita MAC2400. Just received today after selling off my old Campbell Hausfield 4HP 13 Gallon tank. My god that thing was loud! The Makita purrs like a kitten. After breaking it in, I ran it through a couple cycles. Recovers extremely fast and its such a pleasure to not be sent fleeing from the general area because of the noise. I know I have not taken it through its paces but I expect a long service life, consistent with a Makita. It is a little hea...

I’m not the type of woodworker with a lot of discretionary income to throw at every cool tool that hits the shelves. However, I am the type that might spend a little more for simplicity and ease of use to maximize the limited time I actual have to play in the shop. I was in Kentucky last weekend for a funeral (Grandpa – 83 years, struggled with Parkinson’s, comforted now that he free of illness, but is missed!) and passed a Woodcraft store. My Dad and I dropped in so I co...

“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics”  By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

If you are interested in carving Woodspirits, and do not want to buy an entire library on the subject or you are looking for your first book on the subject—buy this book. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the most comprehensive book I have read or own, on the subject. I have all sorts of Woodspirit books, from a variety of publishers, and authors. It seems to me that no book ever has all the information I need – until now. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the abs...

Something to avoid

Something to avoid

03-06-2011 11:03 AM by KnickKnack | 16 comments »

Prefix: I should say that I’m not a very experienced woodworker, so I’m not comparing this machine with anything else – I have no idea whether this table saw is better, or worse, than a Griz X, or a Bear Y. ————————————————————————————————————- A couple of ...

Elbo articulated hollower

Elbo articulated hollower

07-27-2011 12:46 AM by michelletwo | 3 comments »

I just set up this new tool and hollowed this piece of firewood( 8×5w ) to 6 inches. Very easy to use. (I have hollowed by hand, so I do know how) Anyone who has a modest amount of turning experience will find it relatively easy to do. I got this from Packard Woodworks and I believe it is the least expensive on the market at this time. The bad? One of the grub screws was already stripped before I even put it together. One of the long bolts that clamp the holder on the quill, was sh...

A must for Delta portable planers

A must for Delta portable planers

08-17-2011 04:11 AM by Kevin | 13 comments »

Not going to go into great detail here on this review. Ordered one from amazon.com yesterday and it arrived this morning. Replacing the original shroud with this one was a brease, took about 1 minute if that. I did however drill two holes in the bottom left/right of the shroud and into the planer to make it more sturdy. Hooked up a 6.5hp shop vac to it and planed some boards. Taking 1/16 – 1/8 off each pass the shop vac didn’t leave any chips/dust behind. For $25 dollars...

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

A New and Improved Miter Saw (circa 1900!)

04-01-2009 02:57 PM by littlecope | 3 comments »

It being April Fool’s Day, I couldn’t resist reviewing this old dandy! The restaurant I worked at in 1999 was housed in an 1800’s built brick factory building. My Parents say that when they were young it had been a meat packing and processing plant and in the basement there were tracks and hooks for transporting sides of beef and what not. Also in the basement was a corner that was devoted to a small carpenter’s shop and it was there that I found this baby collecting d...
