FastCap Fastbreak

08-13-2015 12:17 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 2 comments »

Just a quick review.I picked up a FastCap Fastbreak sander the other day at Menards. I an currently building a router cabinet and working on the drawers which will have the plywood edges covered with veneer tape. This little thing is pretty cool. It works great for putting on a slight bevel on the veneer let alone cleaning up the edges of the bare plywood. It really makes short work of treating the edges. I highly recommend this.

My prize, Summer 2008 Contest

My prize, Summer 2008 Contest

09-17-2008 10:26 PM by Karson | 13 comments »

I won 2nd place in the LumberJock 2008 One Man’s Junk Contest. I won a Jack Rabbit Deluxe bit driver set. It arrived today and it looks great. It came in a blister pack package and it contained 4 drill bit sizes 7/64, 1/8, 9/64 and 3/32 drill bits. The countersink is 3/8 in the three lower sizes and 1/2 in the larger drill bit. It has a brass covered magnet that is quite strong. It held the wrench that is used to screw in the drill countersink assembly. The drill assembl...

Not recommended for shellac

Not recommended for shellac

10-11-2012 08:08 AM by Purrmaster | 31 comments »

I got this stuff after I saw that the finishing test counter at Rockler had a bottle of this. I was using shellac for the first time so I got this denatured alcohol instead of the “regular” denatured alcohol. I was hoping it might have a bit less toxicity. After sticking my shellac flakes in (2 oz of shellac) and measuring out 6 ounces of alcohol I let the jar sit overnight. And basically nothing happened. So I shake and stir and it makes no difference. I even put the jar ...

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” ...

Great Hand Saw for a Great Price.

Great Hand Saw for a Great Price.

05-08-2012 09:26 PM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

Just a couple of days ago I purchased this “Pony” 15” Hand Saw and WOW what a saw. I recently embarked on a journey to learn how to use hand tools. This lead to the decision to attempt to do some resawing by hand. I started off using a Stanley 726 carpenter’s saw. That did not work out. Wrong kind of saw. So, while I was out the other day I stopped by my local Woodcraft and spoke with a salesman about what I was doing. He reccommended this hand saw. I’m glad he ...

Very nice Magazine

Very nice Magazine

12-04-2009 04:19 PM by David Craig | 8 comments »

A friend of mine recently gifted me with a subscription to Woodsmith Magazine, a publication of August Home Publishing. I have leafed through a number of woodworking type publications over the last couple years (in fact I am a subscriber to Wood Magazine) and have often been left unimpressed with the quality of the material contained within. There are quite a few niceties that this particular publication has that many do not. I will list some of the positives that most impressed me. 1. The...

The best book on power-tool joinery

The best book on power-tool joinery

06-01-2008 07:57 PM by Loren | 6 comments »

I have a lot of woodworking books. About 60 of them. Yeung Chan’s book is one of the best and most practicalof them all. He shows several ways to make each jointso even with a modestly equipped shop you’ll be ableto make quality joints. Yeung’s jig designs are great too. They aren’t complicatedor hard to build and he explains how to make sure theyare accurate. Gary Rogowski also wrote some great books about making joints – but if you get just one get ...

MJ Steel Splitter PRO

MJ Steel Splitter PRO

07-06-2010 05:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 8 comments »

As an owner of an older, inheirited saw with no guards this was the best and easiest solution I have come across. The saw had the stock splitter/guard disposed of after my dad’s first use of the saw…it was not good and deserved being tossed. I only have room on my saw for a single steel tab, and not for the kerf keeper behind it. Even at that I had to drill into the iron top to accomodate the tab. This is a reflection of the saw and not the splitter. The instructions seemed ...

Expensive Junk

Expensive Junk

12-31-2013 04:19 AM by colvinatch | 30 comments »

I bought this bit as part of a three bit set for $75.00 and had high expectations after reading about their revolutionary four blade cutting bits. I put this cove and bead bit in and after the first cut (which was smooth) one of the blades split and separated from the bit and buried itself into my router table fence. What is most troublesome of all is the fact that I communicated this to Freud with no response in over two weeks, not only does Freud have terrible quality control, now ad non-...

Trend T4 Router

Trend T4 Router

01-27-2013 08:31 PM by simmothewoodturner | 3 comments »

Its got a brilliant variable speed adjustment and there start/stop switch is easily reached. Although it doesn’t have a soft start, it doesn’t really need it as it doesn’t really jerk when its switched on. One of the complaints people have is there is no fine height adjustment. No there isn’t but you can buy one to screw on for a small extra cost, but this is a budget router. You can’t expect it to have everything.The guide bushes are very easily attached to t...
