Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

07-27-2009 06:03 PM by FrankLad | 1 comment »

When I decided to move my small woodworking operation indoors, I knew I would need some type of dust collection system. My projects are small – mostly wooden rings and the occasional ring box or other small item, but I still didn’t want even a small amount of fine dust particles floating around in our house. The good thing for me was I knew I wouldn’t require a full-fledged, expensive unit. After a bit of research (thanks to the guys in the LJ forums for suggestions!) I...

Works well after you work out the kinks

Works well after you work out the kinks

05-05-2009 09:43 AM by cmaeda | 4 comments »

I got this so I can make my own vises. I also bought some 1 1/4” dowels to go along with it. This does require some practice to use. The instructions are very sparse and the construction was kind of cheap. The guide that is screwed onto the threader was installed incorrectly so it was difficult to remove. The threader had some scratches and small gouges on it. The tap was fine.I tried it right out of the box. I followed the instruction, soaked the dowel in some BLO and then start...

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

Outstanding addition to the clamping arsenal

10-17-2010 04:49 AM by Chris | 3 comments »

I purchase the Bowlamp Master Set earlier this year because there was some case work and panel glue-ups I wanted to do during the fall season. While building this Mahogany Bookcase I used them on both the face frame and the shelf edging. I have found them to be of very high quality and workmanship and had only very miner issues with using them. The problems were all on my end and not that of the product itself.

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...

Not recommended for shellac

Not recommended for shellac

10-11-2012 08:08 AM by Purrmaster | 31 comments »

I got this stuff after I saw that the finishing test counter at Rockler had a bottle of this. I was using shellac for the first time so I got this denatured alcohol instead of the “regular” denatured alcohol. I was hoping it might have a bit less toxicity. After sticking my shellac flakes in (2 oz of shellac) and measuring out 6 ounces of alcohol I let the jar sit overnight. And basically nothing happened. So I shake and stir and it makes no difference. I even put the jar ...

Summit HVLP - Budget Spraying

Summit HVLP - Budget Spraying

10-22-2014 02:13 AM by Pezking7p | 13 comments »

I purchased this HVLP system last year during a Black Friday special from peachtree woodworking for the extremely low price of something like $70. Regular retail appears to be $120, so please keep this in mind as you read my review. The package comes with a single stage 400W turbine, about 8’ of hose, a spray gun with a plastic siphon cup, and a spare needle and a spare air filter. Everything was in great shape out of the box, just needed to clean the grease off the internals. T...

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

12-04-2009 10:22 PM by hairy | 1 comment »

Why didn’t I think of this? It’s too easy. I have to move my dust hose around a lot, and these work for me. They actually have a pretty good grip, but they won’t make your arms look Popeye. Unpacking and assembly is pretty straightforward, although there are no instructions . At 2 for $6, it’s a good deal. http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2080307/28347/2-piece-Double-Loop-Squeeze-Hose-Clamp-for-4-Dust-Collection-Hose.aspx

Eye protection and Hearing protection all in ONE

Eye protection and Hearing protection all in ONE

03-07-2014 09:33 PM by redryder | 9 comments »

I’ll admit that I can be lazy. The main reason I bought my dust collector was so that I didn’t have to sweep the floor so often. I have never owned a respirator. I seldom put on a dust mask because it fogs up my glasses. The only time I use hearing protection is when I use the planner. The one thing I do use religiously is eye protection. I have had two occasions to have friends give me first hand accounts of what an emergency room doctor has to do to get an object out ...

Carter Hollow Rolling System

Carter Hollow Rolling System

This is my first review so I hope you enjoy. Been looking at this system for a few months and put it on my wish list. Anyway next day started setting it up. Instructions were simple, only you need to purchase a post separate that fits your banjo. Off to WC bought a 5/8’’ post [20 bucks] and back to the shop. This system comes with a tool rest, a super heavy duty turning tool, with a 21’’ blade and 17’’ handle and a 1/4’’ half ro...
