It worked good three times.....just not in a row

02-11-2014 08:45 PM by jakeprater | 12 comments »

I bought this back in December, and it worked great right out of the box. It has a nice fit and finish, and doesn’t feel like cheap plastic. I like the rubber handgrip. The mail tray feels a little light weight, but it functions smoothly, so no real issue there. I also bought Bostich 1 inch nails to go with it – I tried not to skimp too much. So I opened it up, put a few drops of oil in the inlet, and a couple in the oil slot on the front, and hooked it up to my comp...

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

11-10-2014 08:09 AM by sepeck | 5 comments »

Just as I was finishing ripping some lumber on my table saw, standing off the side slightly, the cut piece got bumped a bit as I hit the power switch. As the blade spun down the piece slowly rotated into the blade. I knew there was no chance of me moving in time. My t-shirt got ripped and I used quite a few paper towels to clean up the surface wound (not to mention OW!) on my stomach. My wife said she’d get me an apron for my birthday (and evidently REASONS!). Years ago I got to ...

Harbor Freight Digital Mini Moisture Meter

Harbor Freight Digital Mini Moisture Meter

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.

Great, and inexpensive

Great, and inexpensive

06-28-2014 06:04 PM by Goodsh | 11 comments »

Bought this saw for $30 about 6 months ago. It is great. Cuts super fast in all types of wood often without tear out and is very easy to use. I use it for both crosscuts and rip cuts and it produces fine results in both. The blade is solid and tight in the handle. The handle is a little cheap – it’s basically just a dowel but for $30 bucks I wouldn’t expect much more. This saw is great. To be honest I much prefer this over the Veritas rip carcass saw I got for more than doub...

Odies oil for Instruments

Odies oil for Instruments

07-04-2013 09:39 PM by GibsonWoodworking | 1 comment »

I have been using odies oil now for a few months and I am sold on it. I actually have all of the odies products and they are all wonderful and worth trying. The interesting thing about odies is that all the different products and designed to work together, meaning you can basically customize the finish to get the result you want.I have tried all the traditional instrument finishes, Nitro Lacquer, Tru Oil, Shellac, and Odies is by far the easiest to get a great finish with…. and you don&...

Very handy workbench accessory

Very handy workbench accessory

I purchased the Veritas Planing Stop from Lee Valley (http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=69837&cat=1,41637) about a month ago. I’d had a planing stop I made myself, but I managed to crack it, so I decided to give this one a try. The stop is about 10 in wide and a little over 1 in deep. It has 2 metal posts that fit into standard 3/4 in dog holes on your workbench. The posts slide along the bottom of the stop in a T track. I have dog holes in 2 patterns on my bench: para...

Lie Nielson #51 plane

Lie Nielson #51 plane

08-01-2015 09:21 PM by MC | 4 comments »

Completed the new shooting board to go with my new plane from LN using the plans that came with the plane. As soon as the board was finished I started grabbing various pieces of scrap to try out the new plane. The 51 is heavy, the momentum helps move the plane with skewed blade through all types of wood with ease. Included in my testing today were pieces of Mahogany, Hard Maple, QSWO, and pine. Without any additional sharpening the plane cut through all wood end grain with ease. Should hav...

Awesome pocket hole system

Awesome pocket hole system

10-08-2012 03:53 PM by pendledad | 8 comments »

I was trying to determine the best method for joining together my radiator covers. I didn’t have time for traditional joinery like mortise & tenon. I needed something where I could build 4 radiator covers in about two days (very fast for a newcomer like me). I was going between a biscuit joiner and pocket screws. I finally decided on pocket screws because I didn’t want to deal with the gluing and drying. I also liked the fact that I could disassemble the pieces if I made ...

Fully Automatic Weapon

Fully Automatic Weapon

11-03-2008 07:26 PM by OutPutter | 10 comments »

So, this guy comes to the office to help one of the girls get into a cabinet that had a lost key. I heard all kinds of racket going on over there and thought I better sniff around. It’s a good thing I did because look what I saw. This is a drill with a 36 Volt Battery, two lights with 12 LEDs each, and a shoulder strap. The shoulder strap wasn’t just to help handle the weight, which I estimate at 5lbs, it was also to help with the torque. When you pull the trigger on this thi...

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

09-08-2014 01:14 AM by CharlesA | 23 comments »

I’m not that good at wearing the disposable dust masks that I have. I just don’t like them. So, I end up not wearing them all the time. I was reading one of Bill Pentz's pieces on dust collection, and he emphasized how importance it was to wear a good dust mask and recommended this 3M 7500 series mask (7501 is small, 7502 is medium, 7503 is large—I use the medium). I assumed it was really expensive. Turns out that to buy the mask and a set of 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Car...
