Great compressor!

Great compressor!

1637 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...

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

How to Inhib Rust in your shop

1856 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 ...

Black & Decker RTX

Black & Decker RTX

299 days ago by soapmaker | 8 comments »

I have a couple of the more well known rotary tools but they always seemed underpowered, especially when you put router style cutters in them. I had read when these first came out about them having much more torque for that type of work. I think these are one of the best things this company has made in years. I have one that I’ve been using for four years or so, its held up well enough that I have a couple backups. I’ve run router cutters in carving setups and you can really hog ...

Flattened my water stones

Flattened my water stones

202 days ago 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...

Not impressed

Not impressed

201 days ago by Vertigo | 20 comments »

I purchased this bit because it had three cutters on each blade. It also promised to be a decent bit because of being adjustable. Well not quite what I thought. After 10 feet of tongue cutting one of the carbide tips snapped in half. My 5 year old was in the garage so fortunately it didn’t get him. Usually if carbide fails it detaches completely. This tooth literally cracked in half. In short go with another brand. It will be getting returned

A Solid General Purpose Workhorse At An Affordable Price

A Solid General Purpose Workhorse At An Affordable Price

1739 days ago by knotscott | 7 comments »

This is a very good blade at a fair price (~ $42). Freud’s Industrial series (denoted by an “L” in the prefix) offers a step up from their entry level Diablo and former TK/Avanti series. The larger teeth are C4 micrograin carbide and are very sharp. They feature an alternating top bevel grind (ATB) and a fairly steep 15 degree hook angle that helps it rip reasonably well. The blade has anti-vibration slots and a Permashield coating. I bought the LU86 as a back up to my Fo...

Great idea - does not execute well

Great idea - does not execute well

883 days ago by GrandsonOfRue | 9 comments »

(note: In response to some of the comments…. I do realize that for some these will work quite well. I too have seen reviews of items I was very pleased with though the reviewer was not. For those of you who these work well for, I would love for you to demonstrate because I really hoped they would work. I appreciate your positive findings. I also want to be clear that I in no way am dissing Rockler. I continue to buy many things from them. My decision not to return them had nothing...

Harbor Freight Carbide Faced Carving Disc  for 4 1/2" Grinder

Harbor Freight Carbide Faced Carving Disc for 4 1/2" Grinder

167 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 11 comments »

I had to carve 2” off the diameter of 4 1/2” pistachio tree that was 50” long and needed something to take off a lot of material without loading up or wearing out. So I tried one of the half donut shaped carving wheels from HF that has pieces of carbide embedded in it. I usually don’t like the cutting tools or sand paper from HF, but this carving wheel is one great abrasive tool. It cut all that wood away and is still sharp enough to do it again. I hate to say that I ...

Yet another time wasted disappointment.

Yet another time wasted disappointment.

Here we go again. This 6 inch capacity SO CALLED self-centering jig from TASK-USA or Telco tools is another example of lousy workmanship.Another so called made in the USA centering jig that’s off by unacceptable tolerances.If I wanted this kind of inaccuracy, I would use the drill press witout my glasses.They claim their jig is within 10000 –5000 tolerance, I guess they need to get back to school or learn to use a calculator. 10000 is = 0.0001 and 5000 = 0.0002.My measurement shows 1/100 =0...
