First dedicated rip blade

First dedicated rip blade

10-10-2012 03:55 AM by dnick | 14 comments »

After all these years, I finally bought a rip blade, when I saw a good deal on Amazon. Always used combination blades before. What I really liked about the Freud LU87R010 was the thin kerf & the flat tooth grind. Always wanted flat tooth for grooves & spine joints. Blade was great. I ripped some soft Maple & Mahogony & didn’t have to joint the edges. Then when installing the blade, after maybe 20 rips, I just happened to notice the tooth you see in the photo, because it ...

Great Shop Vac

Great Shop Vac

01-20-2008 08:01 AM by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

I bought this as a bundle with my Domino. Previously I used a Craftsman ShopVac that was powerful but incredibly loud. Excruciatingly loud. The CT22 comes assembled other than a little cord hanger that must be screwed on. It comes with a vac hose to fit Festool Tools. A variety of connectors are available. Cool FeaturesVariable suction control.Built in tool plug for automatic start when the tool is turned on.HEPA filters. Dust free bag change. There was ZERO dust in the case when I chan...

Where has this thing been my entire woodworking career?

Where has this thing been my entire woodworking career?

01-12-2015 08:06 PM by paxorion | 5 comments »

The recent announcement of the Wood Peckers precision framing square sent me down a dangerous path of wondering where I can pull a few hundred bucks out of my budget for an impulse buy. After sanity checking myself, I decided that I need to bring myself back to reality and ask if there was an alternative to consider. Enter the Veritas Square Fence. If a framing square were Tom Cruise, it would say “you complete me” to this Veritas innovation. I spotted this innovation in the...

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

The first picture is just after it died a small fiery death. The second pic is from lowes website, the canister is not really that tall is a more squat. Purchased this in the summer of 2008 and it lasted till September of 2013. I purchased a Ridgid WD1851 to replace it, after it died. I used it for house renovations and some dust collection. It had seen a good amount of drywall dust and concrete dust (which is what lead to its demise). The bushing (not bearing) wore and the motor shaf...

Hole in hollow door

Hole in hollow door

05-09-2011 09:40 PM by diynot | 1 comment »

I was freaking out about a crazy shaped hole on my door that I had to fix cheaply myself and as fast as possible (before tomorrow).Luckily the guys at my local hardware store were no strangers to holes in doors and confidently suggested i try this product. It was cheap, and all I needed was this, fine grit sand paper and paint (which i have) as well as a cheap plastic putty knife. This picture shown is just one application. As you can see the damage was pretty intense and I pretty much h...

Nice Intro to Arts & Crafts Furniture Making

Nice Intro to Arts & Crafts Furniture Making

11-11-2012 03:22 AM by 47phord | 5 comments »

My wife and I both love Arts and Crafts furniture and as we get the funds to replace our old, kid-destroyed furniture we have pretty much decided that this is the style we want go with. So, I bought this DVD (actually a DVD-ROM for your computer) to get started. The whole thing is in PDF format and when you first open it on your computer you are greeted with an interactive menu organized by room; living room, dining room, bedroom along with other links to finishing, joinery (7 different art...

Excellent grinder accessory

Excellent grinder accessory

11-07-2012 09:14 PM by Kreegan | 4 comments »

I got a cheapo 6” bench grinder from Harbor Freight at the same time that I bought my lathe to sharpen my turning tools. It ran just fine with the 2 wheels it came with, but vibrated all over the table with the Norton aluminum oxide wheel that I ordered from Lee Valley. I spent a lot of time messing with the adapter bushings that it came with, trying to get the wheel to run true, but with no luck. Enter the Oneway Balancing System, also purchased from Lee Valley. At first I didn̵...

Nice and functional, but could be improved

Nice and functional, but could be improved

03-15-2012 02:37 AM by Vrtigo1 | 21 comments »

I purchased the 36” Starrett 380 series straightedge to set up my 6” jointer. I purchased the 36” thinking I would need the extra length, but hindsight being 20/20 I think you could get away with a 24” straightedge for a 6” jointer, and the 24” is about half the price. This isn’t related to the review, this is just a statement that I hope someone else in the same boat sees so that they can be armed with that information before deciding which product...
