The Little Victor Plane from Lee Valley

The Little Victor Plane from Lee Valley

02-29-2008 03:15 PM by rikkor | 7 comments »

I bought this little plane mostly on a whim. I am simply amazed by how useful it has turned out to be. It is easy to use either one or two handed. It has Lee Valley quality throughout. The iron was very sharp when I got it. It has a cast iron body that just feels right. I believe the current price is about $35.00.

CMT Orange, Saw blade cleaner

CMT Orange, Saw blade cleaner

05-20-2013 06:59 AM by CalgaryGeoff | 17 comments »

This is my first product review I’m writing, I can’t help myself. I’m impressed with the product so much I need to share my experience with it. I never took before pictures as I never believed it would work so well. I cleaned three blades and I thought all required sharpening and had broken teeth, ok but close. They were full of pitch and tar from all the rough timber I use so I finally got to it as they were all off the saw since the dado stack was on. This picture sh...

Sanded Quality Edges!

Sanded Quality Edges!

11-09-2011 04:21 AM by Kelen | 7 comments »

I’ll keep my review succinct as I know there’s an extensive number of reviews on the Forrest Woodworker II 10-inch 40 tooth available on the internet (168 reviews on Amazon last time I checked). This saw blade is advertised to leave a rip-cut saw edge as smooth as if it had been sanded. I must say, the results are completely in line with those advertised. I’ve ripped several types of wood in varying thicknesses using this blade and the blade has never failed to leave a sm...

A Woodworkers Encyclopedia for a penny?

A Woodworkers Encyclopedia for a penny?

04-29-2009 10:54 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 15 comments »

Author: Nick Engler. I’ll bet a lot of seasoned LJ’s already know about this book but many others won’t so here goes. So, you’re relatively new to woodworking and you want to know which of the seven types of chisels and firmer gouges you have. In this book you can see a picture of each, and explanation of what each is and how it’s used and sure enough a picture of yours. You’ve got paring chisels, the type to be pushed with your hands not a mallet.Or, yo...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

10-03-2013 12:23 AM by PatrickB | 6 comments »

I just go this tool today. I love it. It’s a great hand tool. Pulled it out of the box and cleaned the blade and put a slight hook on the scraper and away I went. Very easy to control the amount of camber in the blade. Just a little bit and takes light wispy shavings that curl. Give it more camber and it takes a more aggressive cut. I keep an old cutting board around just for trying tools out on and see how they do. This is an end grain cutting board so it’s pretty tough. This cab...

Ease of use

Ease of use

10-05-2010 05:33 AM by Dave | 25 comments »

I have been needing another method of sharpening other than by hand. I have been using a 3 and 6 inch grinder for shaping, and Arkansas stone’s for fine tuning. For plane blades, a large piece of glass with assorted grits of wet or dry sandpaper. I have made some jigs for the grinders to get somewhat of a hollow bevel started. And have had some reasonable success with the bevel. As long as I was not dealing with 2 inches or larger. But the stones and my inconsistency of sharpening have ...

Another of my shop favorites

Another of my shop favorites

10-17-2010 05:00 AM by Chris | 5 comments »

Accuracy, reliability, & quality; I received this a a Christmas present but have not had a lot of shop time until this fall. I love using this square on my projects and when setting up my machinery. The scale is very easy to read, the head slides easily along the length of the rule and it is about the easiest to put back on when you take it off as I sometimes do. Is it expensive? Yes, but I feel it’s worth every penny.

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

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...

My first review, I’m not a typist so I going to make this brief. I have wanted to learn SketchUp for some time now.,I have followed many courses on Google and other web sites but this really got me going. http://www.srww.com/blog/?p=1335 It’s from a wood worker that really knows this program. It helps if you have multiple monitors but if not you can watch and pause or you can even download a mpg 4 to watch offline.It starts you off building a Bedroom Side table and teaches you ve...
