Lie Nielson #51 plane

Lie Nielson #51 plane

08-01-2015 09:21 PM by MC | 4 comments »

Completed the new shooting board to go with my new plane from LN using the plans that came with the plane. As soon as the board was finished I started grabbing various pieces of scrap to try out the new plane. The 51 is heavy, the momentum helps move the plane with skewed blade through all types of wood with ease. Included in my testing today were pieces of Mahogany, Hard Maple, QSWO, and pine. Without any additional sharpening the plane cut through all wood end grain with ease. Should hav...

THIS BLADE IS A WINNER

THIS BLADE IS A WINNER

Well, at the Seattle Woodworking show ..I watched them slowly push the Forrest blade thru the wood and no burn marks…..I was fascinated …I even came back the next day and watched again ….I finally bought a Chopmaster online from Forrest for my Radial arm saw …I received it and it sat on the saw table for 2 weeks as i was in the middle of other things …I finally installed it on my Craftsman Radial Arm saw and at the first cut ..I was amazed . Yes …oh man &#...

Nice Ash Smoother

Nice Ash Smoother

I offered to do a review on the Nice Ash plane. Wood planes always intrigued me. I’ve restored a lot of them. They are stuck in corners, on shelves and above cabinets all over my house and shop. With a few exception, everyone has been made to work. The only ones I typically use though are a couple I made myself, but I normally use metal planes. I gave this a 3 and would have gone to 3.5 if I could. I believe part of the reason for the lower score is this plane is one of the first 25 ...

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”...

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

01-23-2008 05:54 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 16 comments »

I love the feel of this saw. The grip is comfortable in my large hand. The saw has a nice “heavy” feel to it. The saw cuts straight and true. It has a rip tooth configuration, with a narrow set. The narrow set helps the saw cut straight, once your cut is started. Once I figured out how to start my cuts, with a light touch push stroke, cutting became very easy. Although, I still have some work to do on my dovetail joints :). www.lie-nielsen.com

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

02-28-2010 04:33 PM by Andrew | 6 comments »

This is my first good plane, in fact it cost more than my 3 other planes all together. I needed a plane that could get into corners, and trim along edges. I wanted to get the 92 it had a 3/4” width as opposed to the 93 with a 1” width, but the 92 was on back order until mid april. My needs are my needs so here goes the 93. It took only a couple of minutes to flatten the back of the iron and hone the edge. The bottom seems pretty flat. After a couple minutes of set up and ad...

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

12-27-2011 01:37 AM by Elizabeth | 9 comments »

Right now this Rockler product (item 39227) is on sale for $20, normally $30, and as I’ve had my eye on it for a little while I decided to go for it and ordered three sets shortly before Christmas. I installed and loaded up all three sets within two hours this morning and am very pleased at the quality of the product. Each set includes two 24” tracks, six 14” shelf brackets and six screws. With my new magnetic studfinder (also reviewed recently) it was a piece of cake t...

A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

12-15-2013 03:18 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

The HF 3/4” Pipe Clamp with Base fixture is probably the only of my many HF acquisitions that has never given me a problem. After discovering the inadequacies of F-style clamps in the greater than 12” range (too much flex), I took the road traveled by many a woodworker before me and began looking to pipe clamps. I began pricing out Jorgensen Pony pipe clamp fixtures and found them to be a bit more expensive than I had anticipated, so I took a chance and bought 1 fixture from HF ...

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

12-06-2010 11:46 PM by lilredweldingrod | 20 comments »

Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lolI could no...

BeadLOCK system

BeadLOCK system

02-29-2008 12:51 AM by jerry118 | 8 comments »

The tool itself consists of a drill guide which produces overlaping holes in the parts to be joined. The set that I used is by the origonal manufacturer. I believe the system is now owned by Rockler, so some of the comments that I make may no longer be valid.The chief problem I encountered was the fact that with the knobs used for tightening the guide in the origonal or secondary position are too small to adequately tighten by hand. If the secondary position is not adequately torqued, the gui...
