Not impressed

I purchased this bit because it had three cutters on each blade. It also promised to be a decent bit because of being adjustable. Well not quite what I thought. After 10 feet of tongue cutting one of the carbide tips snapped in half. My 5 year old was in the garage so fortunately it didn’t get him. Usually if carbide fails it detaches completely. This tooth literally cracked in half. In short go with another brand. It will be getting returned

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

197 days ago 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...

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

125 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...

Every woodworker should have one of these.

Every woodworker should have one of these.

This is used nearly every time my pencil is used. It’s just great. Perfect layouts are so much easier in every way now. I don’t really have much else to say. The picture is pretty self explanitory. Oh, I use the 6 inch because I usually make smaller things. Even if you make large projects most of the layout is at the end of the board for joinery and what not so the 6 inch should be fine for that too.Get one. I can’t imagine you’ll wish you hadn’t.

More Than A "Whittle" Fun

More Than A "Whittle" Fun

859 days ago by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

This review is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details) The Big Book of Whittle Fun by Chris Lubkemann is a little “big book” filled with a “wot of whittlin’ fun”. Small in stature (a great size for taking with you when planning on doing a little whittling) but big in content! This book has over thirty projects and is an inspiration for many more. Games – che...

Veritas T-Slot Router Bit

Veritas T-Slot Router Bit

29 days ago by Lumberpunk | 9 comments »

I love this bit, have owned for about a year now and used on several projects. At $22 Canadian I figure I have saved $60 or $70 on buying t-track for my jigs. The bit will cut a slot full depth straight off but I find it best to hog out most of the waste with a 1/4 or 5/16 bit first and then cut the slot. Tend to leave some furry bits on the top of the slot… easily cleaned up with a few strokes with some sand paper. Living way out in the country it also means I can have t-track anytime...

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

1395 days ago by Dedvw | 9 comments »

Purchased this drill just over a week ago for a really good price ($88 brand new). Box came with the drill, 2 batteries, flashlight, charger and carrying case. The owners manual was not in the box but this was not really an issue, Ridgid makes it very easy to find the PDF manual on their website. The tool itself appears very well made with a good blend of plastic and metal parts. The weight of the Drill is pretty good (a little lighter then my Makita 14.4V) but is a bit top heavy making it...

[sorry for the lousy stock photo. Click on it to see the entire image] I bought this product about 8 months ago. At the time, they were on sale for $14.99. Thats about half what other roller stands of this quality cost and one-fifth of some of the pricier makes/models. When I got it home and took it out of the box, I inspected it for any obvious defects (bad welds, stripped hardware, etc). None were found. I then put it together with no issues. After assembly, I adjusted the stand to vario...
