Inexpensive way to save a lot of time.

Inexpensive way to save a lot of time.

I have to share my shop space with two cars in the winter. All that humidity from melting snow wreaks havoc on the cast iron table saw top and drill press table and post. I set out to find a good way to seal/protect the exposed steel so that come spring, I did not have to spend a day preparing surfaces for woodworking. I came across SLIPIT and after reading some reviews, decided to give it shot. One of the great things about this product is that it not only seals the surface, but makes th...

Back Savor (Needed this a long time ago!)

Back Savor (Needed this a long time ago!)

On my recent trip to the IWF in Atlanta I came across this little jewl. Its made by Southworth. Its an electric hydraulic lift table. Comes fully assembled ready to go, Just plug it in and your set. The lifting capacity is 1500 lbs. with the press of a foot pedal. The top measures 30’ x 60”. Starting at 6” off the floor and rasing to 42” at its tallest position. This is a jewl! I wish I had this a very long time ago. I’ve only been using for a few day...

I almost ordered some of these today, but didn’t when I saw they wanted to charge thirteen bucks for shipping two of them. Later, going through my jig supplies, there they were. These things are small. Very small. So small, they wouldn’t break the one ounce mailing barrier. Still, it would have cost thirteen dollars to ship them. Did I mention that yet? To be fair, they are very handy critters to have around, since they do their assigned task well, which is to fit in T tracks...

"Cooler" Hearing Protection

"Cooler" Hearing Protection

I love my Worktunes earmuffs, and use them with my iPhone in the shop to listen to my music and podcasts. But this time of year, they get mighty warm! So when I saw that AO Safety had come out with earplugs that could be used with my MP3, I had to try them out. As expected, these are much cooler to wear in the heat than the big earmuffs, but they are not an exact replacement. The Blockades are rated at 24 Db instead of the 29Db that the Worktunes are rated. 5Db may not seem like much, but ...

WoodRiver #92 Medium Shoulder Plane

Have I mentioned I have the best wife in the world! Found this under the Xmas treel. What a beauty, feels good in the hand, nice heft to it. Will have to research how to prep it for use and the sharpening angle etc.. More review will be added later, but see no reason not to do 5 stars. I pulled it apart and put it ack together and no pieces were broken/cracked etc. Hmm, I’ll have to cut some dado’s and tennons so I can use it. LOL! Like i need an excuse.

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

Last bandages you'll ever use for the shop

I’m pretty certain I’m going to catch crap for posting this product for review because it’s not necessarily a woodworking product but I believe that once you hear me out you’ll think twice and be willing to give the product a try. Every wood worker gets boo-boos. It’s in the nature of our passion. I have yet to find a band-aid like product that will sufficiently cover the wound and stay stuck while still being able to use my hands in the motions I require whe...

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

I ordered this to tackle the nail pulling process I encountered while reclaiming some Bowling alley floors. As I mentioned in a comment on my blog, I usually am not inclined to order anything online that I have not been able to experience first hand. but since I was desperate, and it just so happened that this product was mentioned a couple of times here and there just when I was looking for nail pulling devices, I figured I’d take the plunge and go for it – a little out of the us...
