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.

Good glue bottle from an unexpected source!

Good glue bottle from an unexpected source!

02-29-2008 11:41 PM by Hawgnutz | 6 comments »

this glue bottle has a brush hidden inside with an adjustable metal stem. The stem can be adjusted for different levels to keep the brush at the level of teh glue in the bottle by screwing a set screw on top. The brush helps spread the glue on wood with even strokes. This is a great glue bottle at a very reasonable price! God Bless,Hawg

Great Thin Kerf Bulk Ripper

06-13-2009 03:23 PM by knotscott | 5 comments »

The Freud LU87R010 is a 10” 24 tooth thin kerf (TK) ripping blade that features a red “Permashield” coating for reduced friction and corrosion resistance, laser cut anti-vibration/anti-noise expansion slots, flat top ground teeth (FTG) for efficient material removal, and an aggressive 20 degree hook angle for a fast feed rate. The LU87 is the TK counterpart to the LM72R010, and is part of Freud’s “Industrial” series. Rip blades are designed to make fast ...

Not recommended for shellac

Not recommended for shellac

10-11-2012 08:08 AM by Purrmaster | 31 comments »

I got this stuff after I saw that the finishing test counter at Rockler had a bottle of this. I was using shellac for the first time so I got this denatured alcohol instead of the “regular” denatured alcohol. I was hoping it might have a bit less toxicity. After sticking my shellac flakes in (2 oz of shellac) and measuring out 6 ounces of alcohol I let the jar sit overnight. And basically nothing happened. So I shake and stir and it makes no difference. I even put the jar ...

A+ Router

A+ Router

07-02-2008 07:48 PM by Woodshopfreak | 8 comments »

This router is great, everything about it is just awesome. I use it in my router table for the most part and this thing is dead on accurate and is very fun to use. The 2 horsepower motor is plenty powerful to cut through even the hardest woods and it has many features that you can’t find on other routers or features that are on very high priced routers. I prefer using this router to the Porter Cable routers we used at school. The hand grips on Porter Cables are more like griping knobs t...

Plumb It exendable level

Plumb It exendable level

02-23-2011 12:02 PM by devann | 2 comments »

This is a review about a level I’ve been using for the last 15 years or so. The manufacture, called PlumbIt makes several models of aluminum levels that are capable of extending from about four feet to nearly twenty two feet in lentgh. The model I have, closed measures 63” and will extend to 13’ 10”. These are some pretty unique levels because the length of the level can be set anywhere within their operating range with just a sqeeze of the handle. This makes this a l...

Back Savor (Needed this a long time ago!)

Back Savor (Needed this a long time ago!)

10-01-2008 02:09 AM by Les Hastings | 11 comments »

On my recent trip to the IWF in Atlanta I came across this little jewl. Its made by Southworth. Its an electric hydraulic lift table. Comes fully assembled ready to go, Just plug it in and your set. The lifting capacity is 1500 lbs. with the press of a foot pedal. The top measures 30’ x 60”. Starting at 6” off the floor and rasing to 42” at its tallest position. This is a jewl! I wish I had this a very long time ago. I’ve only been using for a few day...

JET DC-1100VX-CK Dust Collector: Unpacking and Assembly

JET DC-1100VX-CK Dust Collector: Unpacking and Assembly

11-14-2014 04:28 AM by groland | 15 comments »

I may be the only person nutty enough to think this might be of interest to anyone, but if you are contemplating purchase of one of these units, this may be of interest to you. I purchased this unit from Global Industrial on Nov. 6, 2014. The price was $699.99 to which was added $35.00 for residential delivery, totaling $734.99. Unless you have a loading dock, I recommend the residential delivery service because everything is shipped shrink-wrapped on a palette. My delivery was made by Estes....

Angle Checker

Angle Checker

09-20-2011 06:18 PM by Don W | 10 comments »

I bought this angle checker being I was ordering a bunch of other stuff from Woodcraft. I’ve seen these almost everywhere so I figured it would be handy to have at my sharpening bench. Bottom line, it just doesn’t work. When you slide a plane blade in (even a thick iron) it goes into the hole cut at the end so the angle of the blade really doesn’t register. You can pull it back some and “eye ball” it, but if your going to eye ball it, you might as well just use a...

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

09-08-2014 01:14 AM by CharlesA | 23 comments »

I’m not that good at wearing the disposable dust masks that I have. I just don’t like them. So, I end up not wearing them all the time. I was reading one of Bill Pentz's pieces on dust collection, and he emphasized how importance it was to wear a good dust mask and recommended this 3M 7500 series mask (7501 is small, 7502 is medium, 7503 is large—I use the medium). I assumed it was really expensive. Turns out that to buy the mask and a set of 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Car...
