"Cooler" Hearing Protection

"Cooler" Hearing Protection

I love my Worktunes earmuffs, and use them with my iPhone in the shop to listen to my music and podcasts. But this time of year, they get mighty warm! So when I saw that AO Safety had come out with earplugs that could be used with my MP3, I had to try them out. As expected, these are much cooler to wear in the heat than the big earmuffs, but they are not an exact replacement. The Blockades are rated at 24 Db instead of the 29Db that the Worktunes are rated. 5Db may not seem like much, but ...

Flattened my water stones

Flattened my water stones

I got into more serious sharpening a year ago, but didn’t really know that much. When recently sharpening my chisels, I realized that I had messed up last time, and I needed to re grind 5 of my chisels back to the original 25 degree bevel. My 250 coarse stone was not particularly flat when I finished. I knew I needed to flatten my stones since I use a Veritas Mk II and not the Paul Sellers method. I checked around and it seemed like the two prevailing options aware this norton stone and...

Great solution for some of us older folk!

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...

Low price but lacking in important features

Low price but lacking in important features

08-07-2009 02:05 AM by jake | 4 comments »

I purchased this saw due to the DeWalt name, reasonable price and past experience with DeWalt power tools. While this tool is powerful enough and seems well built, it lacks features that make it’s performance only average at best. The most frustrating aspect is that it lacks a blower and the wood debris from the cut obscures the sight line/markings that you try to follow. It is surprising as my last jig saw was sold by Walmart under their own private label at the time called Quantum Pro...

This afternoon I finished watching “Sharpening your handsaws with Ron Herman” on Shop Class on Demand from Popular Woodworking. It’s an online streaming version of the DVD of the same name. I enjoyed it so much and feel like I learned so much from it that I’m going to order a copy of the DVD to keep when my subscription runs out. Ron Herman is a traditional housewright in Columbus, OH, and the owner of Antiquity Builders. They specialize in period accurate home buil...

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

I ordered this to tackle the nail pulling process I encountered while reclaiming some Bowling alley floors. As I mentioned in a comment on my blog, I usually am not inclined to order anything online that I have not been able to experience first hand. but since I was desperate, and it just so happened that this product was mentioned a couple of times here and there just when I was looking for nail pulling devices, I figured I’d take the plunge and go for it – a little out of the us...

A must have glue accessory

A must have glue accessory

No matter how silly it seems, perhaps one of my absolute favorite tools in my shop is one of the smallest and cheapest. I recently purchased Rocklers silicone glue kit complete with a silicone brush, silicone rake/comb, and a silicone tray. I also purchased separately the silicone dowell applicators. In my opinion, anything that increases my efficiency, reduces cost, and saves materials is something to at least consider. We all use glue on nearly every project, and most of us in the past use...

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

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....

Live Edge Table

Live Edge Table

I recently went to visit with my friend Charles Neil (New Market, VA), at his shop. Our friend Jim Pell was there building a corner cabinet and during my visit I went with Jim to C.P. Johnson Lumber (Elkwood, VA), to pick out some tiger maple. While there CP found me a very nice slab of cherry (8/4×17” x 7’), so I bought it with the intent to make a sofa table with a live edge look. With assistance and input from Charles, I spent 2 days carving the top, 2 days carving the ...
