Harbor Freight Digital Mini Moisture Meter

Harbor Freight Digital Mini Moisture Meter

03-29-2014 05:28 PM by Jerry | 16 comments »

http://www.harborfreight.com/digital-mini-moisture-meter-67143.html Again another stunning value from Harbor Freight $12.99 for something that measures moisture in wood, masonry, and doubles as a centigrade or fahrenheit thermometer. Compare this to 25 or 30 bucks elsewhere.

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

12-06-2010 11:46 PM by lilredweldingrod | 20 comments »

Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lolI could no...

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

10-27-2013 02:14 PM by b2rtch | 2 comments »

While I am writing reviews, I would like to add my name to the long list of Byrd Tool ’s satisfied customers. The date on my blog tells me that I installed this head on my 8 inches Powermatic jointer 445 days ago. Of course I do not use this jointer everyday, yet I never had to replace a cutter , even if one has a small chip .Not only this cutter head gives a wonderful finish but in addition it is very quiet, thing that I really enjoy.The 3 HP motor that I installed in this jointer h...

8" Digital Caliper with Metric or SAE Readout.

8" Digital Caliper with Metric or SAE Readout.

01-04-2013 12:47 AM by RonInOhio | 11 comments »

Perhaps it is a little premature to give a fair or accurate review on this tool. But I have seen some reviews and issues in past reviews, (on 6” models) and thought I would weigh inwith my first impressions with the 8” Pittsburgh caliper . We woodworkers rely on accuracy and reliability of our measuring tools. Its important that we have at our disposal several ways to measure. One helpful measuring device is the caliper. With it you can measure very accurately and in small i...

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

Veritas Cabinet Scraper

02-01-2014 03:30 AM by Jeff_in_LSMO | 5 comments »

Is it weird that the whole time I was using my new Veritas Cabinet Scraper I was singing Sophie B. Hawkins’ line, “Damn, I which I was your lover,” over and over in my head? I know where it started… sorry, I was distracted by my four year old, Jane, who apparently was turned down by a boy in class today and she is really sad… back to it… it started when I took my first pass. Shhhhwit, a perfect shaving. “Damn,” the damn of amazement, not the ...

A great clamp for the price

A great clamp for the price

05-19-2011 06:26 PM by Chuck | 3 comments »

I purchased a set of these bar clamps several years ago. They were inexpensive and have worked very well. I was first introduced to them when taking a class at the CT Valley School of Woodworking. They were all still functional in the school, and I’m sure they get plenty of abuse in the school. They currently list for approximately $25/each for a 48” clamp and offer them in many lengths. The bar clamps are made from extruded aluminum, are reasonably light and give a good am...

Used my cyclone dust collector today for the first time and does that sucker ever suck the shavings. I reduced the 6” dust outlet to 4” and had no issues at all except the noise, oh well it does say hearing protection required.

Am I the only one that can’t say “The Wood Whisperer” without giggling? I picture one of those close talkers, the guy who leans in to say something with an extra dose of breath and spit. Well, I am here to tell you, Marc Spagnuolo is not one of those guys. He’s the “good” kind of wood whisperer, the kind that has useful secrets to share, and always does so at a comfortable distance. Until recently, Marc only whispered those secrets at slumber parties and on...

Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide

View on YouTube A quick review of the Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide. For years I’ve used the regular Mark II Honing Guide and recently purchased the Narrow Blade Guide. I found the new clamping guide is perfect for using with chisels.

Very Capable Budget 20V Impact Driver

Very Capable Budget 20V Impact Driver

06-01-2015 05:10 PM by CharlesA | 6 comments »

I just finished a putting new decking and railing on our deck (okay, so my son and his friend did a lot of the work). I have two Bosch 12v drivers that I really like for woodworking use, but I figured a more robust tool would come in handy for the deck. I found a pretty thorough review of 18/20v impact drivers at Toolguyd.com—While the Milwaukee, Makita, and DeWalt were all rated really highly, he suggested this Porter Cable was a good budget choice. The prices on the highly rated dr...
