Sanded Quality Edges!

Sanded Quality Edges!

11-09-2011 04:21 AM by Kelen | 7 comments »

I’ll keep my review succinct as I know there’s an extensive number of reviews on the Forrest Woodworker II 10-inch 40 tooth available on the internet (168 reviews on Amazon last time I checked). This saw blade is advertised to leave a rip-cut saw edge as smooth as if it had been sanded. I must say, the results are completely in line with those advertised. I’ve ripped several types of wood in varying thicknesses using this blade and the blade has never failed to leave a sm...

No Slowing Down

No Slowing Down

04-28-2012 07:20 PM by TDog | 6 comments »

I researched several skill saws before buying this one. I wanted a saw that was reliable and square…period. This is what I decided on. It has been a good saw. I mostly cut old barn wood for rustic table work. So I don’t know what I’ll be cutting many times, age, condition, dry, wet, etc. I do clean up the nails well and remove first. This Milwauee Saw really does cut all the way through the cut smoothly with no bogging down at all. I use my speed square during most cuts f...

Knew Concepts 8" Fret Saw - Great for Dovetailing

Knew Concepts 8" Fret Saw - Great for Dovetailing

07-02-2013 01:04 PM by MoKC | 8 comments »

Rating: 4 out of 5 Bottom Line: Very good fret saw offers an extremely high degree of control which saves time when it comes to fine woodworking tasks. Comes up short when it comes to material selection for the handle. Otherwise generally positive but not a necessity in the workshop given the price. Pros: -Lightweight and extremely maneuverable.-Tightening the saw blade very easy thanks to a micro-adjuster and cam locking mechanism.-Saw blade can be swiveled to a preset +45 degre...

Not a bad little mini-driver but would look for the TEK4 version

Not a bad little mini-driver but would look for the TEK4 version

01-19-2010 05:00 PM by David Craig | 12 comments »

I have been looking for a mini-driver that I could put in my pocket for small tasks around the shop and assembly work. I have the Ridgid 18v cordless for the larger tasks but it is sometimes a pain in the hip (literally) to have on my holster. Since I pre-drill all my holes before adding fasteners, I just needed a light duty driver for screws. This would give me the flexibility of having a drill already prepped with a bit for drilling and another set for driving. I didn’t want to invest...

A Great Plane

A Great Plane

12-03-2012 03:59 AM by bobasaurus | 12 comments »

I bought this WoodRiver #6 at a Rob Cosman hand planing / dovetailing seminar. He was able to take one of these new out of the box, hone the blade, and produce a shaving about 3/10000” thick according to his micrometer. Most of us attending were impressed enough to buy one ourselves (cost about $150 at the time, though the sale has ended now). I try to follow his hand sharpening technique as well, and now I can get shavings from this plane almost as thin as he can. The first pictu...

Grab them while you can! Great deal on import ratchet clamps!

Grab them while you can! Great deal on import ratchet clamps!

11-22-2012 06:39 PM by jusfine | 10 comments »

I received an email flyer a week or so ago stating there was a box of ratchet clamps in limited quantities for $39.00 at Lee Valley. Yesterday I stopped by the store and bought a box of them. While waiting for the clerk to bring them out so I could see the product, I looked at a Pony ratchet clamp on display and was amazed that the clamps in the box he brought were almost identical. The only difference is the ratcheting mechanism, the import brand has a notched metal bar that keeps t...

Thinking about a thumpin' slab?  This is your book!

Thinking about a thumpin' slab? This is your book!

07-24-2008 03:40 AM by BikerDad | 12 comments »

I picked up this book recently after stumbling across a mention, then a review, then a bunch of raves. I chose to purchase the book directly from Lost Art Press, getting the Deluxe Edition (w/ CD). Their website didn’t want to have anything to do with my credit card, but that simply meant I had to deal directly with a real live and very courteous individual. The verdict on the purchasing experience: the folks at Lost Art Press are a pleasure to deal with. But, you may be wondering...

General International 10" Helical head jointer.

General International 10" Helical head jointer.

07-09-2015 04:51 AM by Steve | 3 comments »

Tried my jointer for the first time, everything good except one bolt and washer was loose holding the pulley onto the shaft driving the head. It actually fell out and after 5 minutes of looking where it came from, replaced it and continued jointing. The safety guard over the head has a spring on a shaft that should return the guard after the wood has passed through, it did not really work so good so I preloaded the spring a little and sprayed a little WD-40 on the pin and everything worke...

light and strong

light and strong

03-01-2008 03:45 AM by dlgWoodWork | 12 comments »

This drill is great. It has plenty of power. The best part is it only wieghs about 3 lbs. I bought this drill about one month ago. It seems like I haven’t put is down since. I looked over several drills before I bought this one. Most woodworkers can do fine with a 14.4v drill. I looked at several of them. I figured I could get one that wieghs less than a 14.4v, but was stronger at the same time. That is why I chose this. Another cool feature is the LED light right above the trigger. I ...
