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...

Could have been so much better....

Could have been so much better....

01-13-2015 09:03 AM by Nate L. | 10 comments »

I will start this review with an email that I sent to the Rikon Tech support team about a week ago. “I have had my 70-220VSR lathe for about a month now. First let me say that the customer service has been great. The CS department has done what they need to do so far to take care of me. I originally ordered the lathe through Woodcraft. The lathe showed up in a timely fashion. After unboxing, I conducted a function check and noticed that the spindle was not spinning true. I remo...

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...

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

07-20-2009 06:09 PM by ShannonRogers | 4 comments »

I took a trip up to Chester County, PA this weekend to take a class with Chuck Bender’s school, The Acanthus Workshop. Chuck goes by the handle Acanthuscarver here on LJ. What a treat! I have been woodworking now for 7 years and hardly do I think of myself as an expert, but I admit to being a little dubious as to how much I would get out of a fundamentals I class. Because the focus was on hand tools, I was more optimistic because I am pretty new to the way of the Schwarz having R...

WoodRiver #92 Medium Shoulder Plane

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.

Well you could get by without them. $15 a pair from Rockler. What the heck are they? They hold aux. fences and stopblocks to your existing rip fence, for crosscutting and dado operations where the blade would otherwise obliterate your existing fence. Just rip a piece of ply, melamine, or other stable stock, drill two holes for the clamps, and clamp away. The biesemeyer aux. fences with clamps are around $150. The only advantage I see is that their fence is exactly 1” thic...

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...

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...

When a square is not square...

When a square is not square...

09-11-2012 05:39 AM by nwbusa | 11 comments »

I’ll make this review short and sweet. When it comes to try squares, they really only have to do one thing well—be square. I bought this inexpensive Crown 4” try square, not expecting any more or any less from it. Unfortunately, it failed in its primary purpose—it was only mostly square, and that just ain’t good enough. The specific problem was that the blade was indeed square to the base; however, the top of the blade was not parallel to the bottom. The las...
