Riser Block

Riser Block

07-12-2008 11:05 PM by khop | 5 comments »

The riser block made for the Grizzly G0555 14” bandsaw also works on the older Jet 14” saw. I compared the cost and it was a no brainer. The Grizzly H3051 Extension kit does the job for only $59.00 . This kit comes complete including a new 105” blade. The blade isn’t the best, so maybe order a good one for resawing. I also equiped this saw with new tires from Rockler. Most reviews say they are the ones to get. The cost of the tires are most resonable at rockler (HUH). ...

Best kept cleaning secret

Best kept cleaning secret

04-04-2010 02:01 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 24 comments »

Stop wasting your money on those so-called cleaners that require you to mortgage your tools just to get few ounces of water and soap in a fancy package. EASY-OFF has been around a long time with a proven track record.It comes in several different skin removing flavors and I guarantee you’ll be amazed at the results.It’ll make your saw blades; router bits, forstner bits and anything that can’t be recognized anymore look like it’s brand new.Oh yeah, make sure you wear gloves.

great combination squares - at a great price

great combination squares - at a great price

07-01-2008 04:33 AM by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

these combination squares from Empire are great. they have found a specialy place in my shop also. they are very inexpensive at around 15$ for the 12” square and 7% for the 6” square. they have a lifetime warranty and are guaranteed flat and square to .oo1”. it may not be a Starret or anything but it is a great square for the price. i like the big 12” one but since i got the smaller 6” one i have found myself reaching for that one more often. it feels very nice i...

A better mouse trap.....

A better mouse trap.....

I received the Sorby Sandmaster from my children as a Christmas present. On the surface you might think “Why do I need a tool for sanding a bowl?” I normally use regular sandpaper (Norton or 3M) for finishing my bowls; this however turned out to be a whole different story. I found that I am not seeing the wonderful concentric circles from the sandpaper scratches and I don’t believe I’m getting much if any heat buildup. I just completed a crotch maple bowl this mornin...

Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner Cuts Through Blade Buildup Effortlessly

Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner Cuts Through Blade Buildup Effortlessly

05-21-2014 12:54 PM by CBeard | 9 comments »

After replacing the blade on my tablesaw, I promptly made the mistake of running some construction grade 2×12’s through it. To say that they gummed up the blade would be an understatement. I took the gummed up blade off and set it to the side for a few weeks until I had time to find a cleaner to remove the sap. Online reviews led me to Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner. Unlike some other cleaners, it is non toxic and biodegradable, which naturally causes one to question how well it ...

disappointed in Veritas

disappointed in Veritas

01-22-2015 04:21 PM by libraryman | 13 comments »

My son presented with me with a Veritas low angle spokeshave for Christmas. We were going to use it for shaping an oak axe handle we had cut out. I initially tested it on Christmas day using some pine and cherry scraps around the shop. Worked great on this fairly soft wood. However when we later tried to shape the oak handle the problems began. The blade is held in place by two bolt heads which contact side bevels on the blade. The instructions for the shave say you need to sand the back of ...

Great Value

Great Value

I picked up this digital caliper for around $30 at a local Rockler. So far I couldn’t be happier. I compared it to a $100+ Mitutoyo at work and they were within a half a thousandth at full scale (5-6 inches). It also has a larger battery, so I’m hoping that it will last longer than the smaller watch battery types. Whats in the box: 6” digital caliper, case, 2 batteries (one installed, one spare). http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=24524

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...

Nice Intro to Arts & Crafts Furniture Making

Nice Intro to Arts & Crafts Furniture Making

11-11-2012 03:22 AM by 47phord | 5 comments »

My wife and I both love Arts and Crafts furniture and as we get the funds to replace our old, kid-destroyed furniture we have pretty much decided that this is the style we want go with. So, I bought this DVD (actually a DVD-ROM for your computer) to get started. The whole thing is in PDF format and when you first open it on your computer you are greeted with an interactive menu organized by room; living room, dining room, bedroom along with other links to finishing, joinery (7 different art...

Harbor Freight Mobile Base with steel support bars

Harbor Freight Mobile Base with steel support bars

04-18-2015 09:09 PM by PaulHWood | 6 comments »

Thanks to curliejones for the idea and help. substituted 1 1/4 inch 16 gauge tube steel instead of hardwood, approximately a $1 a foot for material. Cut to size, clamped into support and started the holes with a 5/16 bit to mark, then finished drilling with 1/8” starter bit and step bit to 11/32 (bolts are 8mm). All but one lined up perfect, and the last one just took riunning the 5/16 bit throuhg once (likely an interior burr). I painted the steel black to match the mobile base, ...
