Rockler Jig It Drill Guide - Video Review

Rockler Jig It Drill Guide - Video Review

412 days ago by Daris | 2 comments »

If you don’t have a drill press, (or even if you do) the Jig It Drill Guide by Rocker is a great little jig. For those who don’t have a drill press but want to use forstner bits; the drill guide helps keep your power drill steady allowing for more precise holes. For those who do have a drill press there are certain times when it’s just not possible to use it. I needed to drill some bench dog holes into my workbench. I wanted to use a forstner bit with my power drill. The Jig It Drill G...

Missed the mark

Missed the mark

I must admit, I know very few mobile bases that are actually worth much, and this one is no exception. The brakes have no chance of holding against a load; The entire setup is very unstable, everything wobbles; Universal = Universal from 24×24 to 36×36

Worst tool I've ever purchased

Worst tool I've ever purchased

550 days ago by Rick M. | 20 comments »

Some years back I needed another adjustable wrench and thought this might be handy. Rather than a worm gear at the head there is a slide on the handle that adjusts the jaws. Fit and finish of the tool is excellent and I like the color scheme but that’s where the positive ends. The slide mechanism is positioned where your hand or thumb will rest on it while using the tool and it opens very easy, way too easy, but typically binds when closing which means that it’s constantly creepin...

shop vac customer service

shop vac customer service

772 days ago 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.

Clean Your Bits & Blades

Clean Your Bits & Blades

815 days ago by plantek | 6 comments »

I’ve always heard about the virtues of cleaning you saw blade when you think it’s time to get it resharpened.Well I finally did it and ended up with a blade as good as it was when new.I wanted a environmentally friendly cleaner to do and decided to try the degreaser I use to remove the shipping grease that comes on new tools…This stuff worked fantastic. I used a lid from a Homedepot 5gal bucket and let the blade soak for about 2 – 5 mins. I then only had to gently br...

Great compressor!

Great compressor!

1630 days ago by Beginningwoodworker | 14 comments »

I recently bought my Bostitch Trim Air compressor. from Amazon.com for $80.30 and UPS delivered it in a couple of days. There was no damage to either the factory packaging, nor the compressor. I am real impress so far. Pros Light weight., It is easy lug it around when I need to nail up some cabinets or trim. Powerful enough to run my finish and brad nailers. I have not tried it with a framing nailer yet. Noise level. At 75 db, the Bostitch I think its quietest in its cl...

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

594 days ago by BigDawg | 15 comments »

I owned a series of Norton waterstones previously, and while they worked well, they didn’t perform as well as I would’ve liked. Plus you have to make sure they get a good soaking well before your sharpening session, which creates a wet mess. I took Bob Van Dyke’s sharpening class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in November. I had looked at the Shapton stones many times before, but I have always hesitated due to the high price tag. After the class I bought a set of 1000 and...

Wow, I am stunned and ticked off all at the same time. I have owned a Ridgid band saw and drill press for almost 10 yrs. The DP has been stellar without a single issue. I actually have the much maligned Ridgid orange BS and I have it tuned up wonderfully and also love it. Due to these two tools I have added to my Ridgid collection. I have their combo shop vac/blower and also love it. Also, orange is my favorite color. :-) Now the sadness… I had a 4330 planer that I bought fr...

Good glue bottle from an unexpected source!

Good glue bottle from an unexpected source!

2365 days ago by Hawgnutz | 6 comments »

this glue bottle has a brush hidden inside with an adjustable metal stem. The stem can be adjusted for different levels to keep the brush at the level of teh glue in the bottle by screwing a set screw on top. The brush helps spread the glue on wood with even strokes. This is a great glue bottle at a very reasonable price! God Bless,Hawg

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

1849 days ago by jerryz | 6 comments »

I bought this at my WoodCraft Store and have installed it my workshop.I can attest that it stops rusting on my Table Saw and the beauty is that this protection will last 2 years.Also the Capsule VC6-2 will protect a 905 ft3 Volume with a radius of 6 ft so any tools within this area are also protected.I have included the page on the woodcraft and the manufacturer info.I checked other suppliers and found that woodcraft had the better price. http://www.zerust.com/product/ict-vapor-capsules ...
