Pretty Nice Carving Gouges

Pretty Nice Carving Gouges

10-29-2010 12:23 AM by Woodwrecker | 4 comments »

I wanted a set of carving gouges , but I couldn’t afford to spend an arm and a leg.I was pretty surprised when these arrived and turned out to be nicer then I thought they would be.Given the price of around $11.00 a gouge, these are nice.They range from 1/4” to 1” and were sharp enough to use right out of the box, but I’ll hone them up real good and give a report a little down the road on how they work out.I gave four stars based on my initial impression, but we’...

PSI Sharpening System

PSI Sharpening System

02-21-2011 03:49 AM by Moby | 2 comments »

I just recently received this sharpening system to put an edge on my dull turning tools. It does a good job but it could be better. Since the system is 8” in diameter sometimes the lathe bed can get in the way of sharpening the tools, a 9” or 10” version could give it some more room. Other than that it is a great system and you can’t beat it for around $40.

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

01-23-2008 05:54 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 16 comments »

I love the feel of this saw. The grip is comfortable in my large hand. The saw has a nice “heavy” feel to it. The saw cuts straight and true. It has a rip tooth configuration, with a narrow set. The narrow set helps the saw cut straight, once your cut is started. Once I figured out how to start my cuts, with a light touch push stroke, cutting became very easy. Although, I still have some work to do on my dovetail joints :). www.lie-nielsen.com

Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide

Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide

07-06-2015 05:56 PM by Matthew Morris | 3 comments »

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.

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

New No 93, rabbet, chisel plane

02-28-2010 04:33 PM by Andrew | 6 comments »

This is my first good plane, in fact it cost more than my 3 other planes all together. I needed a plane that could get into corners, and trim along edges. I wanted to get the 92 it had a 3/4” width as opposed to the 93 with a 1” width, but the 92 was on back order until mid april. My needs are my needs so here goes the 93. It took only a couple of minutes to flatten the back of the iron and hone the edge. The bottom seems pretty flat. After a couple minutes of set up and ad...

Wanna break something...?

Wanna break something...?

02-08-2011 02:56 AM by christopheralan | 2 comments »

This scary looking thing is the Dead On 18-Inch Annihilator Utility and Wrecking Bar. It is used for demolition and general purposes. It is kind of a Swiss Army Knife of hammers with many uses: Hammer, Nail Puller, Board Straightener Drywall Demolition Axe, Wrench, Tile Puller/Ripper, Wire Stripper, and Bottle Opener. It weighs in at almost 4 pounds. Besides intimidating innocent 2×4’s and drywall, this hammer is great. I have used it for day-to-day woodwork and for building heavy-...

Sand Devil

Sand Devil

11-11-2010 02:05 AM by bluejazz | 5 comments »

I hate sanding. Among woodworkers of course, that about is as unique an impression as ‘Hitler was a bad guy’. This tool truly does make sanding easier. First off, cutting sandpaper and getting it into my 3M sanding block was a major pain. I’m sure there are better choices than 3M in sanding blocks and making your own is an option. But this Sand Devil has been a huge improvement for me. First off even with my Sandpaper cutting jig, cutting to size is burdensome if ...

Charles Neil Free Project Videos

Charles Neil Free Project Videos

07-06-2010 05:20 AM by Wolffarmer | 8 comments »

While I am not an experienced woodworker I do occasionally gain skills and knowledge. I would like to recommend these free videos by Charles. I can’t say how much I have learned from them other than I feel I have gotten more out of these videos than all of the other free things I have seen on the internet, combined. Really a first class instruction and a down home feeling in the production. Project Videos

Not Ridgid Quality

Not Ridgid Quality

10-14-2012 08:50 PM by Dan Corbin | 32 comments »

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Ridgid brand, especially their table saws. I had been looking at a bandsaw from Harbor Freight, but with the Ridgid band saw only $50 more, I thought it was a no-brainer. I really should’ve saved my money for something better…. I was excited to get my new bandsaw home and start cutting up some wood. But from the get-go, this was a bad experience. When the unit finally arrived, the box was in very poor shape. Fortunately, there was e...

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...
