Solid fence at a good price

Solid fence at a good price

02-07-2015 06:09 PM by sgmdwk | 26 comments »

It has been a few years since this fence was reviewed on Lumberjocks, so I decided to throw in my two cents worth. I own a Craftsman 113 series contractor table saw I purchased new in 1989. It has been a reliable tool, for me, but has always left a bit to be desired. The single greatest issue has been the fence. Every rip cut has required multiple measurements from both the front and back of the blade to ensure parallel alignment. While a minute or two might not be a great sacrifice, over the...

Spring loaded center punch.

Spring loaded center punch.

I installed a bunch of drawer slides yesterday. You know, the full extension, ball bearing steel kitchen cabinet slides where you are upside down in the cabinet with your head twisted to one side, holding the part on your marks with one hand while you try to find the screw you dropped with the other hand so you can put it in with the driver in your other other hand? Well, actually I don’t do it that way. I double-stick supports on the cabinet side, set the slide on the supports, ad...

Heavy duty and great price.

Heavy duty and great price.

I purchased this work stand for my 10” Craftsman Radial Arm Saw. I needed something in the garage that could carry the weight, not bend or torque under heavy lumber, and be transportable to job sites (mainly my back yard projects). I purchased this in November 2009 after being impressed with the Master Force Miter Saw Stand I reviewed. I gave this unit 4 stars because I have only used it a few times, and it probably should be a 4.5. Here is what I like: 1. It is heavy and stu...

Makes Drilling Pocket Holes a Walk in the Park

Makes Drilling Pocket Holes a Walk in the Park

11-09-2011 11:22 PM by Kelen | 11 comments »

I’m sure some may argue, but this has got to be one of the coolest little gadgets I have in my shop. I opted for the mini version 1) for the attractive price tag compared to their pricier systems, and 2) I never really thought I would use that many pocket holes in my projects. Several hundred pocket holes later, I find myself wishing I had paid the extra amount and purchased their more complete system that retails for around $99. The Kreg-Jig mini will do the same job just as good as its m...

The Workbench Design Book

The Workbench Design Book

The Workbench Design BookBy: Christopher Schwartz ISBN-10: 1558708405 ISBN-13: 978-1558708402 This book is really a landmark in workbench books for me. The workbench design book is a book that takes you on a tour in workbenches; we get a little historical insight, some geographical insight and the chance to see what workbenches some of the top guides of the trade are using. My personal favorite are with no doubt the 21st-century Workbench, this bench is so rock solid and well tho...

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

01-30-2011 01:53 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

I am always on the lookout for quality products at a low price. Since I started turning I have been looking for power sanding accessories that are a better value than what is available through Woodcraft. After quite a bit of searching and comparing I finally decided to give 2Sand.com a shot. After my 1st test drive of their Blue Micron Bowl Sanding Discs I am really impressed! Price When comparing price to Woodcraft there is not comparison. A 5 disc pack Hook & Loop discs from Woodc...

I have only done a little re-sawing but this bade cut 6” thick maple like butter. The finish was good but I am working to get it better. It went through the maple as fast as I could feed it.

An Essential Read

An Essential Read

**This review was pulled from a previous blog post on The Wood Whisperer Many of you may already know Chris Schwarz. He is an editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine and a self-confessed hand-tool and workbench enthusiast. His most recent work is a book called Workbenches, truly a modest title for what is contained within those 144 pages. Perhaps it was just great timing, since I am currently focusing on my hand tool skills, but this book really struck a chord with me. In fact, since my tw...

Well, s**t in my hat, an Aldi jigsaw (No, really)

Well, s**t in my hat, an Aldi jigsaw (No, really)

OK, fellow jocks, I know you’re snickering: “this newbie bought a power tool at Aldi.” And yes, I probably would have laughed at it too but damn if it isn’t a decent saw. The background: Needed to cut some circles out of plywood. Was going to use points at Sears, but missed the sale on the C3 by a day. Figured I’d just grab something cheap at HFT until I could get what I really wanted. The woman made me stop at Aldi on the way to grab some dinner stuff and ...

Salad bowl finish

Salad bowl finish

I read about Clapham’s salad bowl finish for turned bowls and started using it on several projects including my last boxes. It goes on fast and dries quickly, give wood a nice glow, food safe.
