General Internationl cyclone dust collector

General Internationl cyclone dust collector

07-09-2015 05:08 AM by Steve | 5 comments »

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.

Almost Perfect

Almost Perfect

02-26-2015 05:49 PM by mramseyISU | 5 comments »

This is a really preliminary review on this plane. I haven’t gotten a ton of time with it but I’ve taken a few passes with it just to try things out. I’ve been wanting a No 7 for quite a while and I’ve been on the hunt at every antique store I drive by and on Craigslist. I know you can get one on eBay but I’ve been screwed over in the past there so I’m pretty leery of buying on there. I also just for the heck of it threw this Lie-Nielson on my amazon wish l...

Excellent - but Limited

Excellent - but Limited

01-20-2008 05:43 PM by MsDebbieP | 5 comments »

(Photo from dremel.com) Reason For PurchaseI purchased this Dremel to do drilling, cutting, carving, routing, and all that the tool says it will do. I thought that the size would fit with my woodworking skills and building projects of the future. It was also the “supreme” version of the tool at the time. Right from the first use I knew that I loved this tool. It was great for sanding small places and for etching in glass. Loved it! FeaturesThe following list of features i...

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

My 2014 General Experience with Harbor Freight

10-25-2014 02:57 PM by JHAstrello | 21 comments »

Like many, I started out buying a few things from Harbor Freight – for the most part because of the perceived ‘Killer Deals’ that they offer. That, and the ability to get their now famous 20% off Super Coupon that can be copied and used for any one piece of product. Here is what I have bought recently, and my experience. HF Dust System – it’s still in the box awaiting installation.HF Benchtop Belt/Disk sanderHF 2 ton Crane – primarily purchased to help m...

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.

HF 6" ratchet clamp... why do I do this to myself?!?

HF 6" ratchet clamp... why do I do this to myself?!?

06-26-2012 06:33 AM by harvey4804 | 35 comments »

So I picked up 2 Harbor Freight 6” ratchet clamps a while back and they worked just fine… for 1.99 clamps. The holding pressure wasn’t a whole lot but for little jobs it was fine. The alignment/parallelism of the actual clamp pads are off by several degrees no matter how much you clamp it down. But again… 1.99 clamps. This past weekend I was using it to help me assemble a decorative fence around my wife’s garden. After a short period in the sun the plastic got...

Trend T4 Router

Trend T4 Router

01-27-2013 08:31 PM by simmothewoodturner | 3 comments »

Its got a brilliant variable speed adjustment and there start/stop switch is easily reached. Although it doesn’t have a soft start, it doesn’t really need it as it doesn’t really jerk when its switched on. One of the complaints people have is there is no fine height adjustment. No there isn’t but you can buy one to screw on for a small extra cost, but this is a budget router. You can’t expect it to have everything.The guide bushes are very easily attached to t...

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...

Woodpeckers TS-6  T-Square

Woodpeckers TS-6 T-Square

09-28-2014 04:08 PM by timbertailor | 2 comments »

I recently did a review of the” Woodpecker’s 6” Carpenter’s Square” and I use it a great deal. But, when I need to do more detailed work, the precision of the TS-6 is a welcome addition to anyone’s measurement and layout arsenal. It is 6” long, as the name implies and is just the right size for most small jobs like mortis, tenons, hole layout, jointery, hinge and drawer layout, inlays, etc. The ruler has 1/32” micro holes for use with a me...
