So you found an old tool.....

1732 days ago by WayneC | 1 comment »

Restoring, Tuning & Using Classic Woodworking tools by Michael Dunbar256 pages.Published in 1989 This is an excellent book that I have had in my library for quite a while. It is currently out of print, so it has become quite expensive on the second hand market. You can find it on Amazon.com or half.com. The book is well written with lots of photographs to illustrate the author’s points. He covers information about why and how to select old tools and then goes in detail in s...

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

1026 days ago by WoodworkGuy | 5 comments »

I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included). It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient...

Be safer, retrofil this switch on your older equipment

I had a serious problem a short while ago with a jointer I just bought, starting unexpectedly, creating serious damages but more importantly it could have cost me my life or at least some very serious injury.You can read the story here:http://lumberjocks.com/topics/40359#reply-477310 Until yesterday morning when helping some one else with this switch, I used only the paddle of the switch that I installed on the existing equipment in my shop.Yesterday I understood how to correctly wire this...

Eye protection and Hearing protection all in ONE

Eye protection and Hearing protection all in ONE

178 days ago by redryder | 9 comments »

I’ll admit that I can be lazy. The main reason I bought my dust collector was so that I didn’t have to sweep the floor so often. I have never owned a respirator. I seldom put on a dust mask because it fogs up my glasses. The only time I use hearing protection is when I use the planner. The one thing I do use religiously is eye protection. I have had two occasions to have friends give me first hand accounts of what an emergency room doctor has to do to get an object out ...

NEW POWERMATIC PJ882

NEW POWERMATIC PJ882

265 days ago by jeffk726 | 22 comments »

After finally giving up on Delta to turn things around, I decided to purchase the PJ882 model during the Thanksgiving sale promotion. After scouring the internet for recent reviews, I decided to move forward with this purchase as there really were no new positive or negative reviews. I deemed the lack of negative reviews as a good thing. After receiving my jointer 1 week after purchase, I was excited to get it up and running. First came the uncrating. The packaging was adequate as th...

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

1451 days ago by Elizabeth | 13 comments »

I had read about various enclosed-air systems while setting up my shop. I knew I wanted one because I haven’t yet got a proper dust collection system in place and didn’t want to wait to do anything until I had one. I liked the look of the Triton Tools Power Respirator and read some positive reviews so I decided to get one. That was easier said than done. Many reviews are a few years old and the companies mentioned in them no longer sell the unit. One place I saw online has ...

Solid performer, but change the saw blade is a pain

Solid performer, but change the saw blade is a pain

116 days ago by paxorion | 3 comments »

That’s probably all the saw you’d need – My wife Famous last words for a saw that I quickly became annoyed with. I purchased the saw about 3 years ago during a Lowes fathers day sale. For the price, was quite the bargain. I’ve used the saw for for a much of home repair/renovation jobs, as well as many woodworking projects to break down sheet goods and solid lumber. At 13amps, it’s rated to have less power than many 15amp saws, but I doubt many would experi...

Blade Cleaner

Blade Cleaner

2094 days ago by Maddhatter | 13 comments »

During a work conference, one of the vendors present was for Simple Green. After talking about hobbies for a while, we got on the subject of cleaning pitch and gum from blades and bits. He had offered me a sample of the product to try. It was simply amazing, one spray on a blade and the pitch and gum just dissolved. I had pulled out the worst blade of the bunch, and with some light brushing; the pitch came off as easy as you please. I am not sure if this is out on the market, I checked...

How to Make Wooden Farm Toys

How to Make Wooden Farm Toys

759 days ago by Raymond | 2 comments »

Kuritis Foote asked for volunteers to review his book “How to Make Wooden Farm Toys”. The book has plans for four distinct wooden Farm Toys. Project 1 is a Combine with a corn head and a rolling reel head, project 2 is a Skid Steer Loader, project 3 is a Tractor and project 4 is a disk attachment. I received my copy yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to read it. The book is very nicely bound and printed on very good quality paper. Kurtis has done a great job with his approach to the book. It is w...

Citristrip stripping gel

Citristrip stripping gel

832 days ago by dbol | 3 comments »

Using this on my jointer rebuild. It works really good on metal but not sure on how it works on wood.You need to take your time let the product do the work and be patient. I scrubbed it after letting it sit. If you dont get it all of you may need to put a little more on and let that sit. A little paint thinner will help clean it up also.Good luck if you need to strip something.
