My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

04-10-2013 10:21 PM by JuanGatico | 7 comments »

Hi LJs! Since I live in Colombia it’s rather difficult and expensive purchasing books, DVDs and tools in general to be shipped this part of the continent. For that reason I tried some digital downloads, specifically Christopher Schwarz’ video Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench Planes and Jim Tolpin’s The New Traditional Woodworker. Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench PlanesAfter waiting nearly an hour I started watching the video and what...

Valfor Tools Bit Vise -- Router Bit maintenance and sharpening.   ( $69.95 )

Valfor Tools Bit Vise -- Router Bit maintenance and sharpening. ( $69.95 )

09-12-2013 11:59 AM by philphoto | 9 comments »

The need for the bit vise is at first glance, not exactly obvious. Many if not most woodworkers are less than diligent with maintenance and sharpening their bits and tools. It is of importance to note that a casual woodworker may not spend big dollar amounts on their bits, however all bits should be cleaned and sharpened, to operate as designed. The casual woodworker may not be aware of the need for maintenance, and some woodworkers just throw the dull bit away. As a retired professional ...

Quality tool

Quality tool

04-18-2014 09:22 PM by TechTeacher04 | 2 comments »

I had contacted rhett after seeing a post about evaluating hand planes. Rhett sent me a care package to share with my students. I run a woodworking club for my 7th and 8th grade students. I recieved a completed plane with test shavings, a plane glued up, a kit ready to be glued and some blades and plane body blanks. I want to publically thank Rhett for his generosity and support of my students wodworking journey. The assembled plane worked perfectly after i adjusted the plane after is journey...

Eye protection and Hearing protection all in ONE

Eye protection and Hearing protection all in ONE

03-07-2014 09:33 PM 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 ...

Quickest path to quality results

Quickest path to quality results

04-08-2014 03:43 PM by lumberjoe | 3 comments »

I have recently taken an interest in making wooden planes. I did the usual browsing around and found some free content with the basic ideas. I made a few planes based on some youtube videos and other articles. It went pretty smoothly. The problem is the planes sucked. While well constructed adjustment was always an issue and they required a lot of tinkering to get right. Then I happened upon Scott Meek and learned he produced a video on how he makes his smoothing plane. I purchased the dig...

YES, the Global Knives fit the PM 54A

There have been several threads concerning replacement knives for the Powermatic 54A longbed 6” jointer..1) the Global Tooling knives fit2) they were shipped in record time (even with the Holidays)3) they were well packaged4) they were insanely cheap5) 5 stars You are seeing that price correctly. I mean, shipping su*ks but what are you gonna do. Wait for a multiple knife order and it’ll be less painful. I am very impressed with this company, and that’s hard to...

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

Gramercy Tools Sash Saw Kit

04-10-2015 10:41 PM by Redoak90 | 3 comments »

I purchased the Gramercy tools sash saw kit a few weeks back. The kit comes with a saw plate with a brass back and 2 pairs of saw nut and bolt in brass. The saw was packaged in an anti-rust paper with bubble wrap. Nothing was damaged when it arrived and it looked flawless. No scratches, dings, or dents present. The saw is 14” long has 13 ppi and a 0.02” saw plate. I bought the kit because the only saw I had was a Veritas dovetail saw and wanted a larger saw to cut larger pie...

A HOME RUN FOR ROUTER TEMPLATES

A HOME RUN FOR ROUTER TEMPLATES

09-13-2013 12:32 AM by motthunter | 9 comments »

I used this tape and had to say WOW! It is an advance for the art of router templates like i have never seen. You tear off a piece of this tape and attach it to your router template. Peel off the backing paper and place the template on the wood you want to rout. The tape holds strong and when you are done, you pick off the template and it pops off with zero adhesive left on the wood.. No more scraping adhesive, no more lacquer thinner to remove the adhesive, no more crazy sanding. This...

Well worth the extra upfront cost!!

Well worth the extra upfront cost!!

I purchased the Veritas Mark II honing guide from my local Woodcraft store (not sure if they all do it this way, but it was kept behind a door at mine, wasn’t with the other honing guides (for good reason). I took it home, and got it out of it’s packaging, and inspected. The thing that I noticed first was the heft. It is well cast, and the brass knobs are beautifully machined. First impression: high quality tool. The instruction manual is a lengthy read, but super well writ...
