Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books

03-28-2008 05:20 PM by mikega | 5 comments »

“If you can’t finish, you can’t build” This is the comment Charles Neil made to me when I first meant him last year. By now many of you know who Charles Neil is and that he is on a mission to teach other woodworkers what he has learned from over 30 years as a professional woodworker. His latest DVD set that he just released is called Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books.As you can see from the picture above this a 10 DVD set. There is about 15 hours of information on ...

Good little dust collector.

Good little dust collector.

03-02-2013 08:34 AM by Addicted | 6 comments »

I was looking for a dust collector for the Ridgid R4512 table saw I just purchased. My previous saw wasn’t set up for any dust collection, so I have been fighting table saw dust for years. Don’t laugh too hard yet, because I also purchased a DELTA 50-760 to actually do my dust collection with. I saw this little PSI DC660P when I was doing my online shopping, and decided to pick one of these up. Online shopping can be dangerous to the budget. The PSI unit arived first, so ...

Save your money

Save your money

This jig is worthless and is being returned to the seller. The index pin is too short making registration with your workpiece difficult.The knob controlling the index pin is too close to the bottom of the jig and is difficult to set because of its small size and location. More importantly, it does not maintain its setting. It loosens slightly as you progress through your joints ruining the spacing in your workpiece. The workpiece likes to pull away from the fence (when used on a router table)...

If on a Desert Island...

Over the years, like most of you, I have collected a variety of clamps, different brand, styles, sizes. Before wood consumed my thoughts, I didn’t know a bar clamp from a parallel clamp, much less they even existed. I credit Norm for my introduction. As a pup, ol’ Daddy taught me to weld so I know C-clamps. My bar clamp collection started and grew each year as Rockler and Woodcraft held their Black Friday sales. Various sizes of Jet and Rockler brand, light to medium duty bar...

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

12-04-2009 10:22 PM by hairy | 1 comment »

Why didn’t I think of this? It’s too easy. I have to move my dust hose around a lot, and these work for me. They actually have a pretty good grip, but they won’t make your arms look Popeye. Unpacking and assembly is pretty straightforward, although there are no instructions . At 2 for $6, it’s a good deal. http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2080307/28347/2-piece-Double-Loop-Squeeze-Hose-Clamp-for-4-Dust-Collection-Hose.aspx

A Disappointing and Amateurish Effort

A Disappointing and Amateurish Effort

08-17-2011 03:02 PM by 12ftguru | 14 comments »

When I first ordered the “American Woodworker: 25 Years of Issues” DVD I was pretty excited. I am fairly new to American Woodworker and I had only been reading a year or two. I was really looking forward to exploring the back catalog for interesting articles and ideas. Unfortunately, the product itself has been a real disappointment. My first big beef with these DVD’s is the incomprehensible decision to put all of the magazine issues in Adobe’s Flash format. Adobe makes a perfectly good...

I cant say too much about edge retention b...

An amazing tool

An amazing tool

Thanks for reading this review. I hope you’ll find useful informations and it will help you to make your choice.I’ve bought this saw used from a very kind guy in Ontario. I’ve taken the chance to buy it without beingable to do a test drive or even to see it. But I had a good feeling. And I was right.I am not sure if this exact model is still available in Canada but I’ve seen some clones under different brands. This saw is pretty amazing. Look at the specs:20” ...
