Works well after you work out the kinks

Works well after you work out the kinks

05-05-2009 09:43 AM by cmaeda | 4 comments »

I got this so I can make my own vises. I also bought some 1 1/4” dowels to go along with it. This does require some practice to use. The instructions are very sparse and the construction was kind of cheap. The guide that is screwed onto the threader was installed incorrectly so it was difficult to remove. The threader had some scratches and small gouges on it. The tap was fine.I tried it right out of the box. I followed the instruction, soaked the dowel in some BLO and then start...

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

EZ squeeze dust collection hose clamps

12-04-2009 10:22 PM by hairy | 1 comment »

Why didn’t I think of this? It’s too easy. I have to move my dust hose around a lot, and these work for me. They actually have a pretty good grip, but they won’t make your arms look Popeye. Unpacking and assembly is pretty straightforward, although there are no instructions . At 2 for $6, it’s a good deal. http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2080307/28347/2-piece-Double-Loop-Squeeze-Hose-Clamp-for-4-Dust-Collection-Hose.aspx

Sweet little tool

Sweet little tool

12-19-2009 06:52 PM by Drewskie | 17 comments »

This is one of those tools that you buy for specific uses, so naturally I hemmed and haw for a while before purchasing. Over the last few months I have experienced using the Fein tool from time to time on different job sites. Once you use this type of tool you under stand the convenience, instead of breaking out you Japanese saw. I’m not one for long winded review, but I will say this Bosch always makes a quality tool and the quality, power and easy of use are on point with the Fein plus it...

A Quality Square

A Quality Square

06-09-2011 09:57 PM by brtech | 7 comments »

I’ve been trying to score a Starrett 4” double square on Ebay for a couple of months. I use a snipe service and have bid around $35 on any reasonable item, adjusting based on shipping charges and condition. Lost out on at least a dozen. The going rate is $45+. I scored a 12” combo square with the protractor head and the regular head for $39, but couldn’t get a plain double square. This one is $36.50 new. It’s a bit much, but not bad. It’s very nice...

Now a standard part of my workflow

Now a standard part of my workflow

I have been using the Jessem Clear Cut TS Stock Guides for about two months now on my table saw and I felt it was time for a review. These are similar in concept to their Clear Cut Stock Guides for the router table but they have some unique differences that make them significantly better. First, let’s start with unboxing and installation. The guides are beautifully packaged and come with the guides themselves fully assembled. I have a SawStop PCS with the T-Glide fence onto which you...

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

Great TS Upgrade For A Very Reasonable Price

09-30-2009 02:18 AM by dfarr | 13 comments »

I’ve always struggled with the cheap blade adjustment cranks (pictured right) on my 70s vintage table saw. I found these cast iron handwheels (H3189 – Cast Iron Handwheel – 6”) and chromed handles (H3205 – 4” x 3/8”-16) on the Grizzly web site. The handwheels were only $8.50 and the handles were $2.95. This was a great deal compared to other places I’ve looked at similar handwheels. The wheels come with a small center hole that I had to bore ou...

Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books

Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books

03-28-2008 05:20 PM by mikega | 5 comments »

“If you can’t finish, you can’t build” This is the comment Charles Neil made to me when I first meant him last year. By now many of you know who Charles Neil is and that he is on a mission to teach other woodworkers what he has learned from over 30 years as a professional woodworker. His latest DVD set that he just released is called Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books.As you can see from the picture above this a 10 DVD set. There is about 15 hours of information on ...

Meets my needs

Meets my needs

10-27-2011 12:41 AM by Vrtigo1 | 30 comments »

I recently purchased an HVLP system and wanted to buy a respirator to go with it to avoid inhaling the atomized overspray. I went with the 3M 7500 because Marc (The Wood Whisperer) did a segment on his podcast about respirators in which he recommended it. I purchased the bare respirator with no filters, then added a set of the P100 filters. The resiprator is quite lightweight and isn’t a nuisance to have on your face, which I think is important because is your safety gear is a hass...

Flattened my water stones

Flattened my water stones

02-08-2014 10:52 PM by CharlesA | 11 comments »

I got into more serious sharpening a year ago, but didn’t really know that much. When recently sharpening my chisels, I realized that I had messed up last time, and I needed to re grind 5 of my chisels back to the original 25 degree bevel. My 250 coarse stone was not particularly flat when I finished. I knew I needed to flatten my stones since I use a Veritas Mk II and not the Paul Sellers method. I checked around and it seemed like the two prevailing options aware this norton stone and...
