Wood Owl Tri-Cut Auger Bit

Wood Owl Tri-Cut Auger Bit

11-12-2013 01:47 AM by CL810 | 7 comments »

I purchased this bit from Traditional Woodworker to bore holdfast holes in my workbench. It is by far one of the best drill bits I’ve used. I was drilling holes in a 4.75” thick cherry using my drill press at 500 rpm. The bit pulled itself through the board effortlessly and the holes are perfectly smooth. Same results in maple.

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

01-12-2014 02:24 AM by tturner | 6 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...

6" and 12" Combination Squares

6" and 12" Combination Squares

10-14-2011 03:56 AM by DylanC | 4 comments »

Bought both for less than $20 at a local big-box store. Both checked out as square at full extension when I “showed the line to the square”. Also, both have cast steel heads and stainless rulers. The 12” has deep engravings and the 6” is etched. Both have scratch awls stored in the heads, also.

Combination Hex Drill\Tap Bits: Easy Installation of Threaded Knobs and Rod

Combination Hex Drill\Tap Bits: Easy Installation of Threaded Knobs and Rod

08-13-2013 08:26 AM by DeLayne Peck | 13 comments »

Maybe I just fell off the lumber truck, but I didn’t know about combination hex drill\tap bits. You don’t have to install a brass insert! Or, drill and then tap threads?! Do it all in one easy operation! Directly into wood with a low voltage driver!! I have threaded a lot of brass inserts for the jigs I’ve built, like my Rip Snorter Push Block , and thought they were a pain. And, I have read about and used various methods for installing inserts. They work, but they a...

Major help for garage spray booth

Major help for garage spray booth

12-20-2012 05:36 AM by wwbob | 6 comments »

My garage is my workshop. It is also my spray room. Each time I spray, I need to drape sections of the garage with some form of plastic. I had just about given up spraying due to the hassle dealing with the 9×12 plastic sheets, then I discovered 3M Advanced Masking Film. The film comes in a roll about 12.5 inches tall. You tape the film up without unfolding it. Once the 12.5 inch wide film is taped up, you pull down on the back of the film and the it unfolds to a full 99 inches. I...

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

Sturdy lumber rack is easy to install

12-27-2011 01:37 AM by Elizabeth | 9 comments »

Right now this Rockler product (item 39227) is on sale for $20, normally $30, and as I’ve had my eye on it for a little while I decided to go for it and ordered three sets shortly before Christmas. I installed and loaded up all three sets within two hours this morning and am very pleased at the quality of the product. Each set includes two 24” tracks, six 14” shelf brackets and six screws. With my new magnetic studfinder (also reviewed recently) it was a piece of cake t...

Great storage solution.

Great storage solution.

Looking for someplace out of the way to store all your screws/small hardware? Want to keep the dust out? Well, here is a great solution. They are made by a company called Stack-On. Here you will find their website. They come with 12 compartments with a lid that protects the contents keeping the dust out. The lidsslide back in a little to keep them open as you can see in the second picture. They can also snap shut whenclosed. They can either stand alone or be hung on the wall. I at...

I went to buy this fence last Thursday to mount it on my HF band saw.I mounted it Saturday and yesterday Sunday.I am mechanic by trade and it is my job to make stuff work, no matter what.Well, this fence was a challenge. I was expecting an easy and straight forward installation, the installation was anything but——The table had two threaded holes in the front which lined up with fixation holes in the fence but contrary to what it is supposed to be , when using these holes the fenc...

Flattened my water stones

Flattened my water stones

02-08-2014 10:52 PM by CharlesA | 11 comments »

I got into more serious sharpening a year ago, but didn’t really know that much. When recently sharpening my chisels, I realized that I had messed up last time, and I needed to re grind 5 of my chisels back to the original 25 degree bevel. My 250 coarse stone was not particularly flat when I finished. I knew I needed to flatten my stones since I use a Veritas Mk II and not the Paul Sellers method. I checked around and it seemed like the two prevailing options aware this norton stone and...

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

09-30-2009 02:18 AM by dfarr | 13 comments »

I’ve always struggled with the cheap blade adjustment cranks (pictured right) on my 70s vintage table saw. I found these cast iron handwheels (H3189 – Cast Iron Handwheel – 6”) and chromed handles (H3205 – 4” x 3/8”-16) on the Grizzly web site. The handwheels were only $8.50 and the handles were $2.95. This was a great deal compared to other places I’ve looked at similar handwheels. The wheels come with a small center hole that I had to bore ou...
