Absolutely the Most Useful, Inexpensive Marking Tool...

What is it? Ordinary old sticks of school chalk. I use it constantly all over my shop and on project-after-project. Chalk cuts down the chaos, bungling, confusion, memory lapses, searching, waste and mistakes that haunt every shop. My shop for sure. Here are some of my routine uses: Noting the arrival dates of lumber for drying and acclimation. Planning and marking the intended use of and dimensions of new lumber. Laying out initial cuts and dimensions on sheet goods. Noting dimensi...

Crank Makes the Bansaw Fun to Use Again

Crank Makes the Bansaw Fun to Use Again

03-18-2011 09:15 PM by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

I was frustruated by the factory blade tensioning knob on my Jet 14” bandsaw. It didn’t extend above the cover of the saw, so you bang your knuckles every turn you make. Plus the factory knob took forever to tension the blade.The Big Horn crank is quick and easy to use. The crank is above the saw – so no more banged knuckles. It is so quick that I am no longer considering a Carter quick-release. The $15 price and free delivery on Amazon was icing on the cake.

1/8 Micro Die Grinder

1/8 Micro Die Grinder

08-03-2011 05:34 AM by Raymond | 1 comment »

Another trip to Harbor Freight the other day finds me bringing home a few more air tool. This little grinder reminds me of the dentist, even sounds like the dentist. 56000 Rpm, 2 CFM @ 90 PSI. The twist on off feature is ok but not very user friendly. I am working on a foot control. It feels nice in the hand and has tons of power. No vibration and the hose is very flexible. 1 year warentee, and came with all the fittings. If your looking for an inexpensive 22.99 $ high speed tool this just mi...

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). ...

Howdy, The kids and I just finished an awesome time at Disney world. Tomorrow morning begins the long return trip. I can’t wait to get home. I have 6 beautiful boards in the van. I just want to start staring at them and dreaming. Today I met a true woodworking master and conservationist. Mr Bob Hughes is keeping old fallen, dead standing and cleared trees out of the landfills. Bob mills the trees on his property and sells them at very low prices. Bob is working on a beautiful ...

Quality Control issues at Freud

Quality Control issues at Freud

I recently purchased this dado set at Woodcraft and after making my first dado cut I noticed a ridge in the middle of the cut, as if the chippers were a fraction smaller that the outside blades, I took it back and exchanged it for another, which did exactly the same thing. When I returned to Woodcraft they put it on one of their table saws and got the same result, a noticeably higher ridge in the middle of the dado cut making the bottom uneven. They began pulling all these off their shelves...

A great product

A great product

05-15-2009 04:04 AM by Karson | 19 comments »

I’ve used this product for years. I picked it up at a wood show and I’ve not seen it since. You can buy it online, but I need to find a supplier. I use this product on bandsaw blades, especially good when resawing. I also use it on my Mortising machine to lubricate the drill bit in the chisels. It makes the chips slide easier and cuts down on the heat generated by all of the wood going through the chisels. The Par Enterprises web site

Easywoodtools faceplate

Easywoodtools faceplate

05-09-2011 06:05 PM by hairy | 4 comments »

This deserves more than 5 stars. High quality at a good price. Item F625 I got myself in a situation where I needed 2 faceplates at the same time. The other in the second picture is made by Don Pencil, another very good one. I looked around the web and decided on this one. Woodcraft had it at the exact same price that easywoodtools did, so I cut out the middleman. It was on my front porch almost 24 hours after I ordered it. It came from Lexington, Ky. That’s about a 2 hour driv...

Another manly man video

Another manly man video

10-13-2011 11:28 PM by WayneC | 4 comments »

In this video, Rob covers taking a piece of rough lumber to finished state. The topic covered is similar to Chris Schwarz’s Course, Medium and Fine. One key item that distinguishes this video is Rob’s use of the scrub plane. This is one of the few videos I have seen where this plane is used fairly extensively. Most other folks I have seen use a jack plane for this work…. He spent to me what was an amazing amout of time getting one face flat enough to work. He used ...

New Fence

New Fence

01-24-2013 03:54 AM by Steve | 1 comment »

Well finally picked up my fence and rails for my General cabinet saw. Was a little dissapointed when I had to start removing parts from it and straightening them out in my vise. The measuring tape that sticks onto the front rail was all creased, and the backing tape that comes on it was half peeled off. The bolts that anchor the rails onto the table seemed a little light, and the melamine extension table that comes with it was not truely flat. All in all it is all mounted and set up so I can ...
