Spring loaded center punch.

I installed a bunch of drawer slides yesterday. You know, the full extension, ball bearing steel kitchen cabinet slides where you are upside down in the cabinet with your head twisted to one side, holding the part on your marks with one hand while you try to find the screw you dropped with the other hand so you can put it in with the driver in your other other hand? Well, actually I don’t do it that way. I double-stick supports on the cabinet side, set the slide on the supports, ad...

Powerful corded drill for serious users

Powerful corded drill for serious users

11-24-2008 08:45 PM by ferstler | 0 comments »

I picked this drill up at Lowe’s for $119 quite some time ago when my wife decided I would build an extensive wooden walkway network out in our yard. Since such things are going to have to be built out of pressure-treated wood I knew I would need a powerful drill to push 1/2-inch bits through wet lumber. I had already drilled lumber like that for a deck job some years back, and I will say that the 3/4 amp drills I had on hand to do the work were stressed by the project considerably. ...

Great ROS

Great ROS

08-24-2012 11:12 PM by PittsburghTim | 7 comments »

I purchased this sander over six months ago and am certain that it’s the best ROS that I have ever used. It’s much easier to handle than the older Porter Cable unit that I have borrowed from my father in the past and is light years ahead of the 5” Dewalt that I own in finish, stock removal, and dust collection. It can remove material fast with the heavier grits and leaves a fine finsh as you work up to 240 or 320. The cannister filter that came with it worked very well. ...

Acurate, Fast and Easy.

I have needed a way to set up my router fence and router bits in relationship to the fence. It seemed like the reversible glue joint bit, or lock miter bit were such great promise, only to have so much time wasted trying to hit the seemingly impossible perfect alignment of the joint parts. I had more success with the reversible glue joint bits, but still I would end up sanding to get it “right” and not really happy with the end result. Then I read a “Fine WoodworkingR...

Accuracy out of the box

Accuracy out of the box

I have owned a Rockwell Unisaw for 4 years now. I bought it used from the US Army. It had the original fence on it. It was a constant job to keep it aligned and semi accurate. I recently was able to purchase the Delta 36-U30 Unifence. I took only about an hour to assemble it. It was amazing after I was done to do my first test cut. I set the curser at 6” and made my cut and low and behold it came out to six inches. Coming from what I just had all I could say was WOW! With my o...

Long story short. This is my second iGaging angle block. The first had a defective LCD on top of displaying constant error even with a fresh battery.This one the LCD is ok but even at a sale price of 20 it’s waste of money since you may have to spend at least half of that in gas returning and exchanging.Measured against all my engineering squares and then some and two other Wixey’s this thing is so off that’s not even funny. The problem is also inconsistency. It’s not always off by sam...

 great little workhorse for the money

great little workhorse for the money

I got this planer a few months ago and since i got it i have been giving it a lot of work. i have probably run close to 200 bf through this planer and i am still on my first set of knives. which is good considering some of the woods i’ve put through it including hickory which is a demon to any blade. its is a nice little powerhouse though. it works wonderfully and has the power to take the full 1/16” off of any board with ease. it is very heavy duty too. i have stood on it before ...

Great storage solution.

Great storage solution.

04-23-2008 07:49 PM by GaryK | 24 comments »

Looking for someplace out of the way to store all your screws/small hardware? Want to keep the dust out? Well, here is a great solution. They are made by a company called Stack-On. Here you will find their website. They come with 12 compartments with a lid that protects the contents keeping the dust out. The lidsslide back in a little to keep them open as you can see in the second picture. They can also snap shut whenclosed. They can either stand alone or be hung on the wall. I at...
