Awesome time saver

Awesome time saver

10-26-2011 03:21 PM by slickSqueegie | 10 comments »

This is a must have for any woodshop! This little device has an all steel body with Magnets on Three of the four sides making it increadibly versitile. It is extremely accurate as well. Use it on your jointer, Table saw, Miter saw, bandsaw, sanding stations almost any tool. It not only works like a level but you can zero it out on each individual tool you use it on. This is a must have!

Not For Everyone But A Great Tool

Not For Everyone But A Great Tool

10-23-2012 10:19 PM by gfadvm | 23 comments »

My buddy VonHagan recommended this sander to me some time ago and I just recently purchased it. My experience with it has been wonderful: no vibration to speak of, sands REALLY fast, and leaves a perfect surface. I bought the Spirit model as it is lighter and cheaper than the Supreme model. I chose the 3/16” orbit (3/32 and 3/8) are also available. I also got the model that connects to vac. Using my dust collector and Abranet discs, sanding is as dust free as it gets. The down side for ...

The Small Walnut Humidor, a photo documentary

The Small Walnut Humidor, a photo documentary

06-05-2014 10:12 PM by shipwright | 12 comments »

I’ve come to know Roger through this site and consider him a good friend although we’ve never actually met. More importantly here is that I consider him one of the finest box makers around. When someone of his caliber is willing to share what he has learned, I think it makes a lot of sense for most of us to listen up. A while back Roger contacted me and sent me a draft of the new e-book to critique and perhaps to make a few suggestions from a different point of view. I spent a ...

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

10-17-2010 04:49 AM by Chris | 3 comments »

I purchase the Bowlamp Master Set earlier this year because there was some case work and panel glue-ups I wanted to do during the fall season. While building this Mahogany Bookcase I used them on both the face frame and the shelf edging. I have found them to be of very high quality and workmanship and had only very miner issues with using them. The problems were all on my end and not that of the product itself.

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

Excellent planer, but get the extended tables

08-05-2010 04:37 PM by Vrtigo1 | 15 comments »

This is my first planer, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but it works great. All of the controls are easy to use, two speeds (different # of CPI for dimensioning or finishing). I like the fact that the cutter head is connected to the base with 4 risers instead of two like the DW734 and DW733 as well as the Ridgid and Ryobi planers they carry at Lowes and Home Depot. The depth adjustment is extremely easy to use and once I set it, it hasn’t moved once. The top is e...

Very nice Magazine

Very nice Magazine

12-04-2009 04:19 PM by David Craig | 8 comments »

A friend of mine recently gifted me with a subscription to Woodsmith Magazine, a publication of August Home Publishing. I have leafed through a number of woodworking type publications over the last couple years (in fact I am a subscriber to Wood Magazine) and have often been left unimpressed with the quality of the material contained within. There are quite a few niceties that this particular publication has that many do not. I will list some of the positives that most impressed me. 1. The...

procom ventless garage heater

procom ventless garage heater

01-02-2014 02:16 AM by Nowa | 21 comments »

It is 10 below zero here in Minneapolis. With this little procom ventless heater, it is 72 degrees in my garage. http://www.usaprocom.com/product_category.php?choice=1&sid=1&prod=21 I am extremely pleased with the purchase. It mounts to the wall with 2 screws and takes a natural gas line that our hvac technician was able to run up from the basement and hook up in 35 minutes. Since there is no external vent, I did not have to run a stack out through the roof. The results sp...

Incredibly Straight, Incredible Value.

Incredibly Straight, Incredible Value.

05-05-2010 04:00 PM by deeznutz | 10 comments »

Well, the title just about says it all. I’ve been getting more in to hand tools (seems we all are) lately and the construction grade level and HD 12” combo square were just no longer straight enough. I needed an actually straight reference edge that I could trust and to be honest, was a bit skeptical of the price on these (~ $20 Shipped). After getting it, I can say I would highly recommend it. It’s the straightest tool in my little shop and gives me the confidence I nee...

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

01-23-2008 05:54 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 16 comments »

I love the feel of this saw. The grip is comfortable in my large hand. The saw has a nice “heavy” feel to it. The saw cuts straight and true. It has a rip tooth configuration, with a narrow set. The narrow set helps the saw cut straight, once your cut is started. Once I figured out how to start my cuts, with a light touch push stroke, cutting became very easy. Although, I still have some work to do on my dovetail joints :). www.lie-nielsen.com

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 ...
