I have never reviewed any tool before, but I like this one so much that I needed to say something.I, like most LJ’s, build my own jigs and push sticks, but I need to cut a lot of small pieces for trim, inlay etc.I have already cut myself on the tablesaw once and that was plenty for the rest of my life!!!! So I bought the basic Grr-ripper with the additional 1/8” leg, set it up and started cutting slightly under 1/8’pieces and my hands were NO WHERE NEAR the blade. What a ...

Router Table

Router Table

01-21-2011 03:06 AM by Bill St.Pierre | 16 comments »

I purchased a Freud router table and router 2 years ago and liked it so much I bought another one last year so I had 2 when making rails and stiles.I have been having trouble with the stiles because it was as if the lumber was not straight when I would run it so the profile was uneven across the piece. I finally realized that the table top had bowed from the weight of the router so the center of the table was off about an 1/8”. I brought it to the attention of my local Woodcraft store ...

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

02-09-2011 07:55 PM by steliart | 0 comments »

Jebson 1409V variable, reversible corded drill & screwdriver 3/8” (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill I was looking for a small corded quality drill that will be easy on my hands to use, controllable, robust and powerful. The shop guy recommended (introduced) this drill to me and even though its price was a bit high for the moment I hold it in my hands it felt right, so I went for it. There was nothing fancy coming with it in the box, just the drill and its chuc...

Easy and works

Easy and works

12-18-2013 09:45 PM by Rick M. | 5 comments »

Disclaimer, this was a free sample I received many months ago. Odie’s Oil is a mix of wax(es) and oil(s) that works like a friction polish but can also be applied to flat work. I don’t know exactly what is in it and it has a very distinct smell that I find pleasing. The claim is a little bit will go a long way and initially I tried applying with a paper towel and was disappointed, not only does the towel absorb too much of the finish but the paper sticks and leaves little fuzzb...

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

Laguna 2hp Cyclone Dust Collector - Unboxing & Assy

11-01-2015 02:16 AM by TheDane | 7 comments »

This is an initial (unboxing & assembly) review … I’ll update after the machine has been in service for a few months. The machine arrived at the local Woodcraft store on a pallet, and weighed in at 106 KG (a little over 233 pounds). We got the shipping container ( 45” x 26” x 38”) to fit into the cargo bay of my Jeep Liberty with a little finagling (and a few well-chosen words). I have a pneumatic table and a very patient wife that were invaluable in unloading it in my g...

Understanding Wood Finishing by Bob Flexner (1994 edition)

Understanding Wood Finishing by Bob Flexner (1994 edition)

12-07-2012 12:27 PM by Purrmaster | 11 comments »

Please note: This is for the 1994 edition of the book. I recently got this book and have now read it cover to cover. This is a fantastic book. I learned more from this book than everything else I’ve read on finishing. The book covers pretty much all of the finishes you’d be putting on wood. Varnish, shellac, lacquer, oil, etc. The book isn’t so much a how to manual about how to apply the finishes (though there is enough of that). It’s more of a primer on th...

Simple Green Again

Simple Green Again

07-23-2009 03:41 AM by Kindlingmaker | 19 comments »

I know there have been many praises and reviews for Simple Green to clean all kinds of saw blades but I read another praise in “Woodworkers Resource” about mixing Simple Green 1:4, 1 part Simple Green to 4 parts water. The author let the blades soak for 3 hours and said it worked as good or better than any other product for removing build up on saw blades. I have tried mineral spirits, paint thinner, gasoline, and just about everything else with small success, so I mixed up 1 gallon of Simpl...

I originally undertook a review of this item http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Tikka/blog/1195 in 2007. here are some of the comments I made then. WIXEY DIGITAL SAW READOUT The first thing I noted was the excellent packaging inside the carton. Things were held in place to stop them moving about during shipment. (Other suppliers of equipment take note) You should read the blog if you want all the associated pictures. In summary – with my failing eyesight a great asset for accurate measuremen...

Lie Nielson #51 plane

Lie Nielson #51 plane

08-01-2015 09:21 PM by MC | 4 comments »

Completed the new shooting board to go with my new plane from LN using the plans that came with the plane. As soon as the board was finished I started grabbing various pieces of scrap to try out the new plane. The 51 is heavy, the momentum helps move the plane with skewed blade through all types of wood with ease. Included in my testing today were pieces of Mahogany, Hard Maple, QSWO, and pine. Without any additional sharpening the plane cut through all wood end grain with ease. Should hav...

Belt failure resulting in expensive repair

Belt failure resulting in expensive repair

06-20-2010 03:12 PM by MitchSaginaw | 14 comments »

I am writing to warn the readers that I had to replace the drive belt internal to my Porter Cable 371 belt sander after only 4 months of use. This is a great tool for the shop for its compact size and ability to remove material fast with good control. The problem is that the unit appeared to overheat and the belt came apart. I took it to a warranty center expecting to have it repaired under warranty but found out it was not covered and the repair cost $49.92. ($11 for the belt and the...
