Rockler Coping Sled

Rockler Coping Sled

09-27-2013 05:21 AM by Albe | 6 comments »

I have never wrote a tool review but after using Rockler’s Coping Sled and not seeing any other reviews I figured I’d try my luck. I actually bought the copping sled several years ago when I got frustrated when using a rail and stile bit set to do the profile on the end grain. No matter how hard I tried bit seemed to grab and it threw it off track. I again realized how much of a lifesaver it is when using it again doing the same operation. Although the copping sled seems a little steep ...

FN Bandana by Blu Dragon Enterprises

FN Bandana by Blu Dragon Enterprises

11-02-2012 07:18 PM by AAWW2005 | 7 comments »

Hey all, just want to show off my new “FN Banadana”!(Patent Pending) I know what you’re thinking and the “FN” doesn’t stand for what you think it does! It’s a Fitted Nose Banadana. Much like your dust masks in the shop, this bandana has a metal strip sewn in the center that you can form around your nose to keep from breathing the dust in. Designed by a motorcycle rider to keep from fogging up her glasses, the FN Bandana has many other uses as well:...

Laguna Driftmaster:  5 Stars for performance, 3 Stars for fit and finish

Laguna Driftmaster: 5 Stars for performance, 3 Stars for fit and finish

10-30-2014 04:05 PM by Rockne | 2 comments »

I’ve pretty well summed up my feelings about Laguna’s terrible customer service, or lack thereof (search for my review of the LT14 SUV). When they failed to deliver the saw, I sent all of the accessories/blades back to Laguna . . . except the Driftmaster. Had anyone out there produced something like it, I would have opted for the alternative, but since Laguna is the only game in town, I held onto it. When I opened the pacakge, I was a little disappointed. The clear plastic/c...

My Ridig shopvac works better now

My Ridig shopvac works better now

08-05-2010 03:57 PM by woodsmith | 3 comments »

In my use of shopvacs if you get a filter that will trap fine sawdust it stops up quickly. But some how Gore has come up with a way to give me the best of both worlds, longlife and HEPA filter. I have been using the first filter over a year and it still works. I have blown it out a few times. It is not cheap but to me it is worth it.

This he do in the wonderful tone of a craftsman with a solid long apprenticeship under the wings of a master (his father) and a long lif...

Nice rasp but I wouldn't call it a chisel

Nice rasp but I wouldn't call it a chisel

02-29-2008 04:15 PM by kshipp | 1 comment »

I got this mainly as a rasp and it performs really well as that. It removes material quickly and has the flat and rounded sides depending on what you need at the time. It also has a file on the side which I haven’t really used yet but I’m sure it would come in handy at some point. The problem is they say this device is also a chisel and it even comes with the protective end cap. I could understand if they called this a screwdriver but not a chisel. Out of the box it was not ...

A GOOD LITTLE SAW

A GOOD LITTLE SAW

10-04-2013 10:37 PM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

While this saw is not made anymore (it is made in another version) I found it to suffice for my needs at the time. The covering on the table wore off kind of quick but it did not impact the performance of the saw. For a job site saw the fence was adequate but nothing fantastic. I did put a WoodWorker II saw blade on it and that made a difference in how the saw cut. For over $100.00 it better make a difference!! I was able to 8/4 wood for cutting boards with this saw. I will admit it did not ...

Worst tool I've ever purchased

Worst tool I've ever purchased

02-17-2013 04:49 PM by Rick M. | 20 comments »

Some years back I needed another adjustable wrench and thought this might be handy. Rather than a worm gear at the head there is a slide on the handle that adjusts the jaws. Fit and finish of the tool is excellent and I like the color scheme but that’s where the positive ends. The slide mechanism is positioned where your hand or thumb will rest on it while using the tool and it opens very easy, way too easy, but typically binds when closing which means that it’s constantly creepin...

Aggressive """NOT"""

Aggressive """NOT"""

04-10-2012 08:52 PM by dargo | 12 comments »

I have tried the 6”orbital by ridgid 3 times.. I was lured by the lifetime warranty, i was reading on other sites that the warranty is not all that it’s cracked up to be.. anyway, I will never buy another ridgid sander again.. I’m tired of the frustration of having a tool you depend on, give up when you need it most. I am on the 4th sander and at this point i don’t care about the warranty.. The sander has a flaw., when you take apart the disc and the counterbalance you...
