Why did I wait so long??

12-06-2011 05:24 AM by Tedstor | 10 comments »

Easily accessible power is priceless in the shop. While installing new outlets would have been the preferable remedy, it wasn’t particularly practical in my case. This cord reel has solved a lot of problems for me. At 30 ft, its long enough to reach any point in my workshop/garage, and can even reach onto my driveway if necessary. And being mounted on the ceiling makes it easy to manage the cord, keeping it off the floor and away from my feet. The reel includes all the needed hardware t...

Affordable powerful hammer drill

Affordable powerful hammer drill

02-08-2010 03:14 AM by SchotterWoodworking | 4 comments »

This is my first review for this website so forgive me if I don’t quite come up to par (any constructive advice would be appreciated). This was my first hammer drill purchase. I’ve used a Bosch Bulldog and a Milwaukee hammer drill, which are both very impressive tools, but a little too much for me. I didn’t buy this drill for drilling block walls all day long. This is a great hammer drill to keep for DIY home improvement. I put a wire wheel in the chuck and stripped paint o...

Shop Dog Approved Mats

Shop Dog Approved Mats

11-02-2013 08:45 PM by ChunkyC | 11 comments »

I’ve been using anti fatigue mats and even carpet remnants in the shop for a long time. I have a couple different styles and both are better than standing on concrete but still not great. I’ve had / used the rubber mats in the garage / barn for a long time but I finally moved one into the shop and bought 2 more today. They are 6’ x 4’ x 3/4” thick solid rubber mat stamped Made in Canada. I would say, not knowing for absolute certainty, that they are made fr...

A good product for a craftsman .113

A good product for a craftsman .113

08-05-2012 12:35 AM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

A won’t go too in-deepth here. Its a pretty simple product and it works well. The insert has 4 leveling screws to adjust flush with the table top. It also has adjustable screws in the top/side to prevent any lateral movement (see pic). The insert actually fit pretty well out of the box. After about 2 minutes worth of adjustments, it was dead-on. Seems to be good quality and I have no reason to think it won’t last for years. I’ll probably buy two more for dado and thicker, cr...

Northern Tools has incompetent managers

Northern Tools has incompetent managers

12-07-2013 12:05 AM by Mike | 24 comments »

A Rant on Northern Tools Phone Customer Service: A product I purchased turned me from just wanting to know where my purchase was to being POed quickly. The agent that I was speaking to over the phone had told me that UPS had delivered my item to the USPS for delivery. Based on my UPS tracking number, it said this was done two days ago. I then asked for a status update as to when I should get my item since the USPS doesn’t take three days to deliver something from less than 40 minut...

Indeed a great tool

Indeed a great tool

03-16-2009 03:11 PM by NetPro | 12 comments »

Given that when available I like USA or German made tools, I researched this tool on the Web and found nothing available. The LION Pootatuck has been dicontinued and it appears all stock depleted. Not even a used one on e-bay. Went ahead and order one from Grizzly and was plesantly surprised by the quality of this tool.It was right on the money for both the 45 and 90 degrees preset on the right and left sides.Not that is hard to calibrate it if you need to, but I have several highly accura...

Stumpy Nubs Box Joint Jig 2.0

Stumpy Nubs Box Joint Jig 2.0

01-15-2015 06:35 PM by NKYKelly | 3 comments »

I had previously purchased the Gear-Driven Box Joint Jig plan from Woodgears.ca. After getting tired of thining about conversion of the Metric Plan, I came across Stumpy’s v2.0 design. Also, one of the first things I built was the Woodsmith Adjustable Box Joint Jig. I like it and used it a great deal, but setup to achieve a great fitting joint was time-consuming This is a good plan and a very unique design. Stumpy is much like Mathias and John Heinz. Great brain for design, but ...
