Excellent Wood Cleaner

61 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 17 comments »

Not a great tale of restoration as others in LJs post, but a review that confirms what others told me: “BAR KEEPERS FRIEND” is a very capable cleaner for wood tools. In this case, of Stanley No. 32 rule that had certainly seen better aesthetic days. As shown above, the ruler was not very legible when I got it. Here’s the rule from a farther distance. I posted a couple pictures of my flea market find on the Marking and Measuring thread and a discussion ensued re: wa...

Jeff Miller writes a solid instructional manual for woodworkers

Jeff Miller writes a solid instructional manual for woodworkers

260 days ago by jusfine | 6 comments »

This is the first Popular Woodworking book that I have really found entertaining. Some of the previous ones I have read have been quite elementary and didn’t offer much substance. ”Woodworking with Body, Mind and Senses”, this book is a good addition to your library. Jeff Miller provides some basics in the first few chapters so the understanding of working wood fibers is clear, then moves on to sharpening tools, techniques, safety, jigs, tool use, etc. then brings it a...

Rockler Clamp Racks

Rockler Clamp Racks

433 days ago by Ken90712 | 12 comments »

Like a lot of us on here space is an issue & you can never have Enough Clamps, LOL. I had made this clamp rack back in Dec 09. Sure doesn’t seem that long ago that I made this project. While it was very effective the spacing was a little too wide and not as efficient as I would have liked. Even with the extra beefy hinges there is a little sagging. One day I will rebuild this whole thing out of stronger wood like oak as pine was just what I happened to have extra at the time. Rockler ...

This is my 2-cents on this mighty fine finish from Generals. It’s grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr8!, As Tony the Tiger would have said. I used this for the 1st time on the 3 in 1 crib that I just built for my youngest Grndson. I used a sort of “French-Ball” to apply the recommended 3 coats. Small make-up pads (believe me, I don’t use make-up)lol, inside of a pair of panty-hose….......OK, stop laughin, I don’t wear those either…....I do have a hard time goin ...

Okay so i built myself a cabinet for my miter saw and wanted some type of dust collection, granted there can only be so much when it comes to a miter saw but anyways i put a small vac inside the cabinet and needed a way to turn it on and off without opening everything up flipping the switch ect.

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

26 days ago by MrRon | 6 comments »

This is not a woodworker tool, but it is a tool none-the-less. Made of plastic, aluminum and spring steel; operated by hand, it is used to pick up items that are out of reach with suction cup like grippers. Originally intended for older people who have difficulty picking up items that are out of reach, I have found more uses for this tool than it was intended for. Although I’m not an old person (only 79), I do have difficulty picking up small items that fall to the floor in my shop. Th...

A little pricey, but worth it.

A little pricey, but worth it.

Bought this when I did the drawers for the lego table.My Ryobi drill wouldn’t fit in some of the places I needed it too. I also bought the 3/8 chuck for the drill. In my opinion, these tools preform as designed. I have driven 3 1/2” drywall screws into pine 2×4s with no pilot hole with no problem. Plenty of power. The impact driver is a bit noisy, but that is to be expected. For assebly with screws, they simply cant be beat. I find myself reaching for the drill more of...

Worth every penny, i.e. Quality shines through

Worth every penny, i.e. Quality shines through

11 days ago by JayT | 14 comments »

“It is well with me only when I have a chisel in my hand” Michelangelo While I realize the famous artist was talking about sculpting, had he been a modern day woodworker, he may well have been referring to a Two Cherries chisel. Having purchased and using a set of Stanley Bailey chisels that were not meeting expectations, I decided to step up and purchase a couple of individual higher quality tools in the sizes that get used the most. The company I work for stocks wooden handled Two C...
