The last one you will ever need (or want)

Good evening LJ’s, Last week I ordered and received this gripper Model 200Y, this on the verge of a cabinet job :) Well friends I put it to the test ripping anything from plywood cabinet sides to face frame materials and it lived up to their claims. the green sticky rubber really grips the wood without sliding and keeping it renewed is simply using denatured Alcohol to clean it. the plate on the bottom assists in helping rip thin stock, remove it with a simple loosening of two wing ...

What a difference !

What a difference !

03-08-2010 02:51 AM by b2rtch | 19 comments »

Last week I received by mail the set of three Footprint planes I bought from Sears on the Internet. I bought them because the price was right and it seemed to be a good value. IN the last month or so I spent countless hour son the Internet reading about hand planes; what the different planes are and what are their respective use, how to tune and how to use them. Of course I have used hand planes before but I really never paid attention to them, I just used them. Lately I found out that they a...

New Dust Collection System Just installed

New Dust Collection System Just installed

04-28-2008 04:52 AM by bbqking | 21 comments »

This is one of the most efficient dust collectors I have run across in quite some time. The manufacturers have managed to keep the noise levels down to almost unbelievable readings and kept electric costs down to nearly nothing. However, I have been notified that refrigeration costs have increased in some workshops. I am impressed as to how these items work together as a whole, with the Harper bench brush raking dust onto the floor so that the Publix broom can pull the sawdust away from prob...

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

01-04-2013 11:44 AM by BigDawg | 15 comments »

I owned a series of Norton waterstones previously, and while they worked well, they didn’t perform as well as I would’ve liked. Plus you have to make sure they get a good soaking well before your sharpening session, which creates a wet mess. I took Bob Van Dyke’s sharpening class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in November. I had looked at the Shapton stones many times before, but I have always hesitated due to the high price tag. After the class I bought a set of 1000 and...

First impressions of my new air cleaner

First impressions of my new air cleaner

09-14-2010 06:04 PM by lsemarc | 12 comments »

I thought for years that dust collection and air quality in the workshop wasn’t that important. After my grandfather passed away from lung cancer I decided that I should do something about protecting mine. Without my wife knowing I went and picked one up and figured I had a couple of weeks before she noticed the charge on our account. Due to traveling I was unable to get it installed for about two weeks. The guilt about not telling her finally got to me and I told her what I did, surpri...

Some seriously slippery surfaces.

Some seriously slippery surfaces.

01-22-2014 06:46 PM by BennyG | 17 comments »

This product is used to lubricate any surface in the shop where drag and hang ups across in feed/out feed tables, fences and the like are problematic. Used in place of silicone or other lubricants that would contaminate the woods/materials surface and create a build up of lube and sawdust on equipment and machinery. I have used a similar more expensive product in a few of the larger production shops that I have worked in over the years and have seen first-hand the benefits of using a dry l...

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

Anyone who has ever seen the movie “A Christmas Story” knows the elation of discovering that you had won a major prize. I have not had a new tool infiltrate my shop in a very long time. It would be even longer had I not won this plane from the Wood Talk Online podcast—thanks Marc and Matt. See, folks, if you aren’t listening to this podcast, YOU SHOULD BE! Even a guy who never wins a thing can win something over-the-top cool! Okay: on to the plane (thank God it ...

Excellent dovetail saw w/ unique design

Excellent dovetail saw w/ unique design

02-13-2011 06:34 AM by PflugervilleSteve | 2 comments »

Kevin Drake of Glen-Drake Toolworks has been touring with the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool events. They visited Austin in January 2011 and after lurking and listening then finally trying one of their dovetail saw I decided to get one. REALLY GOOD DECISION. From their web site: “There are no teeth at the front of the blade and no teeth at the back of the blade. This means the saw works more like a power saw works, it moves before and after each cut. You accelerate into each cut and relax...

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

Actually Does Remove Rust Stain

11-10-2013 07:54 PM by HillbillyShooter | 24 comments »

Some time ago, and without going into details, water got onto the out-feed table of my PowerMatic 60 long bed jointer. I use TopCote (now made by Bostik) on a regular basis to protect my tool tops, but it didn’t help prevent the rust or remove it. I was able to get the “red” rust off with steel wool and Boeshield T-9 Rust and Corrosion Protection. However, a black/gray stain remained which I couldn’t get off. This stain is shown in the second picture above. Recently I learned about a ...

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

09-28-2012 07:04 PM by Tom Godfrey | 13 comments »

Want to review a book that I just purchased a few days ago. It’s called “Artisans & Money”, written by Joe Rollins. Some of you may remember me posting a review of his lathe cutting tools and as of today I have had 1146 views with 7 comments. Not sure if any of you ordered any of these tools but if you are starting out in wood turning or even if you have been turning for years I still feel this is one of the best investments you can make. Why? Great product at a lower price than other see...
