Lithium Ion Power Is Here

Lithium Ion Power Is Here

02-29-2008 11:32 PM by Thuan | 0 comments »

I did my research on these new Lithium-Ion power screwdrivers for their power to weight ratio. After comparing Bosch, Makita and Metabo, I chose the Metabo Powergrip II. It’s small lithium powered battery can be stored for months without loosing a charge. It’s small 1.6 lb size makes is fits that kitchen drawer even though it is built for tough professional use. The aluminum housing, and rubber grip, gives it s solid feel. At 7.2 volts, the battery is not as powerful as other brands, but ...

Porter-Cable Porter Cable 1.25 HP Compact Router Fixed/Plunge Combo Kit

07-08-2012 01:49 AM by Roger | 11 comments »

This is a really nice fixed and plunge base compact router. I know I will use this much in the future for smaller routing jobs. Lotsa power, ez to use, gr8 quality. I got it at a really super price a while back, and I finally got round to using it. I cut the slots in my “football helmet” steadyrest jig that I made for turning long stock, like cane/s, spindles, etc. This worked very nicely. I look forward to using it more for many things. Not much of a review, but, I would say if ...

Fastcap pocket chisels

Fastcap pocket chisels

04-29-2009 04:12 PM by PirateOfCatan | 1 comment »

I bought three of the four sizes and have enjoyed all of them. The four sizes are 1/4”, 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” with a sharpener in the same folding style. I had to skip on the 1” because shipping needed to be included in the budget. They have been put through tough knots and soft woods mostly. The soft woods (pine, poplar and old weathered pressure treated) cut nice and clean. The edge was not dulled very much by the knots, no visible flattening or nicks (it di...

Excellent Clamps

Excellent Clamps

12-12-2012 08:07 PM by NiteWalker | 6 comments »

For a long time I’ve been looking for a good 12” clamp for my boxes I build. I’ve been through a few before I tried the Bessey Tradesman clamps, and I wish I had sooner. I tried the regular duty jorgensen 3700 series clamps. Those were ok, but you had to pay extra for clamp pads. But the dealbreaker for me was that the bars flex way too much for a 12” clamp. I also tried the heavy duty jorgensen 3700-HD series clamps. Those are great and have no bar flex at 12”...

Nice Left-Blade Saw

Nice Left-Blade Saw

07-31-2011 07:41 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I have really enjoyed my new circular saw since my skil saw bit the dust. I have remodeled a commercial office, and built some wainscoting with it and can now give it favorable reviews. I like the left blade for better sight of your cut line. I has plenty of power, and is easy to use. It follows a clamp-and-cut straight edge well, and easily breaks down sheet goods for cutting at the tablesaw. It doesn’t have a safety switch on the trigger, but I always use the blade guard so it wo...

Bessy double headed clamp

Bessy double headed clamp

05-19-2009 02:49 AM by kosta | 27 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I was at lowes today getting another toolbox for all my stuff and I saw this double headed c clamp. Now i was like what the hell is that but if you think about it you can clamp 2 seperate pices of wood to your bench with 1 clamp. Now this is a 12 in c clamp and it cost me like $10 so I was like well jet beat bessy out with the paraell bar clamps so this is there way of coming back and it is really a good idea. The jaws are padded so they wont screw up the wood or what e...

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...

Just the ticket for those difficult sanding tasks

Just the ticket for those difficult sanding tasks

07-28-2008 04:08 AM by Sawdust2 | 10 comments »

Saturday morning I was lying in bed and on the TV was the lovely Jodi Marks touting the MultiMaster. Now, it’s difficult not to do what Jody says, she being all wonderful and woodworky. And my wife had already decided that we (I) were (was) going to refinish the kitchen table (as opposed to the dining room table). You can see it in the photo. This top is veneered out of some unidentified wood that looks like a cross between birch, maple and European Beech. But the edging was shaped w...

A goof proof sharpening system

A goof proof sharpening system

02-09-2014 05:54 PM by CharlesA | 9 comments »

I will admit at the beginning that I have never used the scary sharp, the Paul Sellers method, Tormek, or other sharpening systems. A year ago I got my first good set of chisels and started with some vintage Stanley planes. I stopped by my local Woodcraft and asked what they recommended for sharpening, and I picked up this Veritas Mk II and some Japanese water stones. Good: You don’t have to know a lot. There are lots of possible settings for every kind of chisel and plane. It...
