A Better Layout Tool

A Better Layout Tool

12-20-2010 06:23 AM by Tim Dorcas | 4 comments »

I posted a longer review of this tool on website, but in short the Brumley Tools’ Trim Gauge has become my go to tool for measuring and laying out. It’s incredibly easy to use, more compact than a combination square, and as I typically need to do multiple layouts, it’s nice that you get three in a kit: 2 4”, 1 8”. I won’t lie and say that they are inexpensive but of late my Trim Gauges are one of favorite go to tools in the shop.

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...

Not Ridgid Quality

Not Ridgid Quality

10-14-2012 08:50 PM by Dan Corbin | 32 comments »

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Ridgid brand, especially their table saws. I had been looking at a bandsaw from Harbor Freight, but with the Ridgid band saw only $50 more, I thought it was a no-brainer. I really should’ve saved my money for something better…. I was excited to get my new bandsaw home and start cutting up some wood. But from the get-go, this was a bad experience. When the unit finally arrived, the box was in very poor shape. Fortunately, there was e...

New Jointer

Got me a new DJ-20 to replace my 6” Ridgid. To me it’s a small aircraft carrier.I’ve not had much luck with Delta tools the last few years but decided to go with a Delta again over a General and King.Out of the 2 crates the tables were flat and in line with each other and the fence was perfect.Paint job isn’t the greatest but if the above points are perfect it’s a fabs item. If I could I’d give it 4.5 starsGreat price too at $1499 Cdn -PLUS I get to choose...

Sand Devil

Sand Devil

11-11-2010 02:05 AM by bluejazz | 5 comments »

I hate sanding. Among woodworkers of course, that about is as unique an impression as ‘Hitler was a bad guy’. This tool truly does make sanding easier. First off, cutting sandpaper and getting it into my 3M sanding block was a major pain. I’m sure there are better choices than 3M in sanding blocks and making your own is an option. But this Sand Devil has been a huge improvement for me. First off even with my Sandpaper cutting jig, cutting to size is burdensome if ...

I love this stuff!

I love this stuff!

11-16-2015 11:25 PM by Drew | 13 comments »

I’m sure I have sprayed 20+ different waterborne topcoats the last 6-7 years. Several of which I’ve sprayed well over 50 gallons of! Most of which was on corporate or commercial projects. As with most things, there are things I like and dislike about all of them. About a year ago I decided to try emtech. Jeff (owner, target coatings) suggested I use 8000cv. I had yet to shoot a waterborne conversion varnish that I liked so I went with 9300 instead. After a short learning curve ...

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

03-01-2013 12:46 AM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is the file holder from Veritas for card scrapers. Works great for putting a new edge on card scrapers after the burr is worn out. Takes only a couple of seconds to file the edge and get it ready to burnish or you can leave it as is after filing for heavy (as heavy as you can get with a card scraper anyway) material removal. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a good jig for their card scrapers.

Harbor Freight Digital Mini Moisture Meter

Harbor Freight Digital Mini Moisture Meter

03-29-2014 05:28 PM by Jerry | 16 comments »

http://www.harborfreight.com/digital-mini-moisture-meter-67143.html Again another stunning value from Harbor Freight $12.99 for something that measures moisture in wood, masonry, and doubles as a centigrade or fahrenheit thermometer. Compare this to 25 or 30 bucks elsewhere.

Grizzly “G0636X – 17 Inch Ultimate” Bandsaw Review

Grizzly “G0636X – 17 Inch Ultimate” Bandsaw Review

01-04-2016 02:42 AM by JBrow | 20 comments »

The first post to Lumberjocks was this review, which I posted in the Forum, Under Tools etc. It was recommended that I re-post this review in the Review section of Lumberjocks. Purchase. I have been woodworking as a hobby since 1985, but never owned a bandsaw – until now. Previously, I re-sawed on the table saw and used the jig saw & router for curved cuts. Before making my bandsaw purchase, I saved my money and researched bandsaws. I considered 14” to 19” bandsaws from every manufact...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

02-01-2014 03:30 AM by Jeff_in_LSMO | 5 comments »

Is it weird that the whole time I was using my new Veritas Cabinet Scraper I was singing Sophie B. Hawkins’ line, “Damn, I which I was your lover,” over and over in my head? I know where it started… sorry, I was distracted by my four year old, Jane, who apparently was turned down by a boy in class today and she is really sad… back to it… it started when I took my first pass. Shhhhwit, a perfect shaving. “Damn,” the damn of amazement, not the ...
