Best I've used

Best I've used

09-30-2011 03:23 AM by JayPique | 5 comments »

I just saw this review, and I completely agree – it’s the best I’ve used. It smells like Band-aids I think. The only thing you need to watch is that if you spread it with a steel putty knife it will start to turn black if you work it too long, so I use plastic, or stainless steel to spread it. It comes it a nice wide range of colors too, and if it gets dry you just add a drop or three of water and mix it up again. Great stuff.JP

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

Was nice till it sucked up to much concrete dust

09-30-2013 06:44 PM by Bill1974 | 8 comments »

The first picture is just after it died a small fiery death. The second pic is from lowes website, the canister is not really that tall is a more squat. Purchased this in the summer of 2008 and it lasted till September of 2013. I purchased a Ridgid WD1851 to replace it, after it died. I used it for house renovations and some dust collection. It had seen a good amount of drywall dust and concrete dust (which is what lead to its demise). The bushing (not bearing) wore and the motor shaf...

powerful and heavy duty

powerful and heavy duty

08-07-2009 01:42 AM by jake | 9 comments »

This tool is heavy duty in every aspect. It cuts hardwoods like butter. I like the basic nature of the tool, no lasers etc. They often obscure the sight line by getting in the way, and I would rather clearly see myself than rely on a laser. It base plate is aluminum, but is heavy enough it doesnt flex and I’m sure it helps keep the weight down. The adjustments are straight foreward and are easily operated. The motor sounds smooth in it’s wind up and use. The cord is nice and long,...

Pleasantly surprised

Pleasantly surprised

09-13-2013 07:26 PM by mummykicks | 5 comments »

Very pleased with this. I get zero dust below the table now, my router runs cooler (as do my bits), and when used with something like the incra master fence I’m dust free when doing anything that has the bit near the fence. Got mine on amazon for $40. There is a plastic sheet that has velcro on it that the cup attaches to. I just cut it out to fit around my lift and double stick taped it to my router plate. Has worked fine.I don’t ever remove my router from the table, so I canR...

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

My opinion on two digital downloads from Popular Wodworking website

04-10-2013 10:21 PM by JuanGatico | 7 comments »

Hi LJs! Since I live in Colombia it’s rather difficult and expensive purchasing books, DVDs and tools in general to be shipped this part of the continent. For that reason I tried some digital downloads, specifically Christopher Schwarz’ video Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench Planes and Jim Tolpin’s The New Traditional Woodworker. Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench PlanesAfter waiting nearly an hour I started watching the video and what...

Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD  By Steve Latta

Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD By Steve Latta

05-18-2014 04:14 AM by sandhill | 8 comments »

I was really not going to buy the Tool kit but when it included the DVD by Steve Latta who actually was the one responsible for the development design with lie-Nielsen I decided to pull the trigger and invest in the kit. For me the DVD was worth the entire cost of the kit and the tools were the added bonus Steve spoke slow enough to leave time to grasp the topic and made each step clear. When explaining a new term he was easy to understand. Each section flowed seamlessly to the next and was l...

This nail gun is great!

This nail gun is great!

06-16-2010 05:46 AM by ABrown | 9 comments »

I bought this gun to install 1500 board ft of crown. It’s light weight really helped when useing it over head. It came with two triggers one for “bump” fire and a standard trigger. Portercable has made this gun oilless, which I love. It also has a belt clip which is very handy. Overall this is an excellent gun to own.

Fein Review of the Multimaster

Fein Review of the Multimaster

01-24-2008 10:32 PM by jude | 10 comments »

I pretty much fell in love with the Fein Multimaster within the first 5 seconds of the store demo. Fein has a demo stand set up at the ToolKing Superstore (and probably other places where it is sold) and I tried it out cutting grout. It removed the grout easily and quickly and with no strain on my part. As someone who has used a hand grout scraper to scrape out the group in a bathroom, this tool was like a dog door to a 9-5er. The Fein Multimaster will save you time because it does all th...

Another manly man video

Another manly man video

10-13-2011 11:28 PM by WayneC | 4 comments »

In this video, Rob covers taking a piece of rough lumber to finished state. The topic covered is similar to Chris Schwarz’s Course, Medium and Fine. One key item that distinguishes this video is Rob’s use of the scrub plane. This is one of the few videos I have seen where this plane is used fairly extensively. Most other folks I have seen use a jack plane for this work…. He spent to me what was an amazing amout of time getting one face flat enough to work. He used ...
