A very versatile block plane

A very versatile block plane

01-22-2008 04:17 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 4 comments »

This Skewed Block Plane can be used for many operations. It can be used to work on end-grain, like a standard block plane. It has a fence and nicker so that you can work on tenons and rabbets. The nicker can be moved so that it is engaged or not. I’ve used it to clean up some tenons and it work beautiful. The skew blade really helps to reduce tear-out when going across the grain. I haven’t added an auxiliary fence to mine yet, but it’s coming soon. It come in Iron o...

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. ...

Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner Cuts Through Blade Buildup Effortlessly

Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner Cuts Through Blade Buildup Effortlessly

05-21-2014 12:54 PM by CBeard | 9 comments »

After replacing the blade on my tablesaw, I promptly made the mistake of running some construction grade 2×12’s through it. To say that they gummed up the blade would be an understatement. I took the gummed up blade off and set it to the side for a few weeks until I had time to find a cleaner to remove the sap. Online reviews led me to Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner. Unlike some other cleaners, it is non toxic and biodegradable, which naturally causes one to question how well it ...

Dissapointing Woodworking Class

Dissapointing Woodworking Class

10-21-2014 07:51 PM by gfernandez | 12 comments »

Two years ago I took a woodworking class here in NC with Gregory Paolini and built a bow arm Morris chair (see attached picture). Although there were a few bumps along the way, the main one being he was short an instructor and we all went home with unfinished pieces, it was still a great time and the 6 of us learned a ton of useful woodworking knowledge. Greg was also readily available via phone and email with the many questions I had after the class ended regarding getting my project complet...

shop vac customer service

shop vac customer service

07-10-2012 01:45 PM by sarahss | 15 comments »

We bought a new shop vac a few months back, and last night the motor died. I called shop vac this morning and they were very pleasant. I gave them the model number and told them that I had bought the unit within the last 6 months but wasn’t certain about the exact date. No problem, they are sending me a new motor free of charge! Great customer service experience.

Tablesaw Essentials.

Tablesaw Essentials.

03-01-2008 04:43 AM by gizmodyne | 18 comments »

Well you could get by without them. $15 a pair from Rockler. What the heck are they? They hold aux. fences and stopblocks to your existing rip fence, for crosscutting and dado operations where the blade would otherwise obliterate your existing fence. Just rip a piece of ply, melamine, or other stable stock, drill two holes for the clamps, and clamp away. The biesemeyer aux. fences with clamps are around $150. The only advantage I see is that their fence is exactly 1” thic...

Shop Dog Approved Mats

Shop Dog Approved Mats

11-02-2013 08:45 PM by ChunkyC | 11 comments »

I’ve been using anti fatigue mats and even carpet remnants in the shop for a long time. I have a couple different styles and both are better than standing on concrete but still not great. I’ve had / used the rubber mats in the garage / barn for a long time but I finally moved one into the shop and bought 2 more today. They are 6’ x 4’ x 3/4” thick solid rubber mat stamped Made in Canada. I would say, not knowing for absolute certainty, that they are made fr...

Indeed a great tool

Indeed a great tool

03-16-2009 03:11 PM by NetPro | 12 comments »

Given that when available I like USA or German made tools, I researched this tool on the Web and found nothing available. The LION Pootatuck has been dicontinued and it appears all stock depleted. Not even a used one on e-bay. Went ahead and order one from Grizzly and was plesantly surprised by the quality of this tool.It was right on the money for both the 45 and 90 degrees preset on the right and left sides.Not that is hard to calibrate it if you need to, but I have several highly accura...

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface:  Evaluation and Testing

Dylos DC1100 PRO with Serial Interface: Evaluation and Testing

09-27-2012 05:37 PM by djg | 6 comments »

The DC1100 PRO (with Serial Interface) is a true laser particle counter with the ability to count particulate mater suspended the air. There are two size ranges for the PRO model: between 0.5 and 2.5 microns, and greater than 2.5 microns. Several models are available but I felt that for a woodworking shop the stuff less than 2.5 microns was the most important particulate to measure since it is probably the most dangerous. This was purchased through a group buy offered by the Canadian woo...

The Workbench Design Book

The Workbench Design Book

08-20-2011 02:49 PM by mafe | 16 comments »

The Workbench Design BookBy: Christopher Schwartz ISBN-10: 1558708405 ISBN-13: 978-1558708402 This book is really a landmark in workbench books for me. The workbench design book is a book that takes you on a tour in workbenches; we get a little historical insight, some geographical insight and the chance to see what workbenches some of the top guides of the trade are using. My personal favorite are with no doubt the 21st-century Workbench, this bench is so rock solid and well tho...
