Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

01-12-2014 02:24 AM by tturner | 6 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...

Expensive Junk

Expensive Junk

12-31-2013 04:19 AM by colvinatch | 30 comments »

I bought this bit as part of a three bit set for $75.00 and had high expectations after reading about their revolutionary four blade cutting bits. I put this cove and bead bit in and after the first cut (which was smooth) one of the blades split and separated from the bit and buried itself into my router table fence. What is most troublesome of all is the fact that I communicated this to Freud with no response in over two weeks, not only does Freud have terrible quality control, now ad non-...

FastCap Fastbreak

FastCap Fastbreak

Just a quick review.I picked up a FastCap Fastbreak sander the other day at Menards. I an currently building a router cabinet and working on the drawers which will have the plywood edges covered with veneer tape. This little thing is pretty cool. It works great for putting on a slight bevel on the veneer let alone cleaning up the edges of the bare plywood. It really makes short work of treating the edges. I highly recommend this.

Great Hand Saw for a Great Price.

Great Hand Saw for a Great Price.

05-08-2012 09:26 PM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

Just a couple of days ago I purchased this “Pony” 15” Hand Saw and WOW what a saw. I recently embarked on a journey to learn how to use hand tools. This lead to the decision to attempt to do some resawing by hand. I started off using a Stanley 726 carpenter’s saw. That did not work out. Wrong kind of saw. So, while I was out the other day I stopped by my local Woodcraft and spoke with a salesman about what I was doing. He reccommended this hand saw. I’m glad he ...

A highly versatile and accurate tool

A highly versatile and accurate tool

08-16-2010 07:34 PM by Mark Colan | 2 comments »

[This is a repost of a review I wrote and posted on Amazon in June. If you find it useful, I would appreciate a visit to the Amazon review and click “Yes” for useful.] WHAT KIND OF PRECISION DO YOU NEED? A house framer once told me “there’s no such thing as an eighth of an inch.” A friend who has a metal shop told me that accuracy of 1/100 inch is useless for his work. So what accuracy do YOU need? It depends on the kind of work you are doing. Wood exp...

Harbor Freight Digital Mini Moisture Meter

http://www.harborfreight.com/digital-mini-moisture-meter-67143.html Again another stunning value from Harbor Freight $12.99 for something that measures moisture in wood, masonry, and doubles as a centigrade or fahrenheit thermometer. Compare this to 25 or 30 bucks elsewhere.

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 ...

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

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...

Now a standard part of my workflow

Now a standard part of my workflow

I have been using the Jessem Clear Cut TS Stock Guides for about two months now on my table saw and I felt it was time for a review. These are similar in concept to their Clear Cut Stock Guides for the router table but they have some unique differences that make them significantly better. First, let’s start with unboxing and installation. The guides are beautifully packaged and come with the guides themselves fully assembled. I have a SawStop PCS with the T-Glide fence onto which you...
