Excellent tool for hollowers

Excellent tool for hollowers

1469 days ago by reggiek | 4 comments »

I bought this tool some time ago, based on a recommendation I received from a good friend that does gallery class production turnings, and have been running it through it’s paces. Now that I have it’s measure, it is time to do a write up. This tool is made in New Zealand – and definitely has excellent engineering and quality control. It arrived in first class condition well packaged and extremely well protected. The instruction book is a bit on the slim side…not...

Anything you wanted to know about chucks and more

Anything you wanted to know about chucks and more

1191 days ago by MsDebbieP | 5 comments »

This book review is from the May-June 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning by Doc Green   The tagline for the book “Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning” says, “Everything you need to know to secure wood on your lathe” and I don’t think that is an exaggeration. What more can there be when you have section headings of: Drive Centers and Live ...

Hitachi C10RA3 Review

Hitachi C10RA3 Review

253 days ago by Edwardnorton | 10 comments »

I have had this saw for sometime now and all I can say about it is for others not to buy one. I suppose my purchase of this is out of pure ignorance in serious wood working / hobby & crafting. I thought I knew tools since I had been a contractor for 30 years but boy O boy was I wrong. First of all the miter gauge is an odd ball size which made building my table sled a real challenge. I also had a difficult time building a zero clearance dado blade insert for it because of the flanges a...

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

151 days ago by MrRon | 6 comments »

This is not a woodworker tool, but it is a tool none-the-less. Made of plastic, aluminum and spring steel; operated by hand, it is used to pick up items that are out of reach with suction cup like grippers. Originally intended for older people who have difficulty picking up items that are out of reach, I have found more uses for this tool than it was intended for. Although I’m not an old person (only 79), I do have difficulty picking up small items that fall to the floor in my shop. Th...

“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics”  By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

If you are interested in carving Woodspirits, and do not want to buy an entire library on the subject or you are looking for your first book on the subject—buy this book. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the most comprehensive book I have read or own, on the subject. I have all sorts of Woodspirit books, from a variety of publishers, and authors. It seems to me that no book ever has all the information I need – until now. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the abs...

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

1421 days ago by Dedvw | 9 comments »

Purchased this drill just over a week ago for a really good price ($88 brand new). Box came with the drill, 2 batteries, flashlight, charger and carrying case. The owners manual was not in the box but this was not really an issue, Ridgid makes it very easy to find the PDF manual on their website. The tool itself appears very well made with a good blend of plastic and metal parts. The weight of the Drill is pretty good (a little lighter then my Makita 14.4V) but is a bit top heavy making it...

Save Your Money

Save Your Money

1774 days ago by cstrang | 8 comments »

I bought these blades as a set about a year ago now, however they did not last that long in my saw, they stayed in my miter saw and table saw for about a week and then they found a new home on my blade rack only to be taken down for the odd occasion when I build a deck. I paid about $40.00 for this two-pack of blades and they aren’t even worth that in my mind, but I was looking for a good deal and this popped right up. I find that the yellow strip makes more friction than anything else and it...

router edge and circular cuts, at it's best

router edge and circular cuts, at it's best

159 days ago by Holbs | 6 comments »

I’ll start by admitting, I did not buy this at full retail price ($400+) but at an auction for $30. I guess nobody else knew what this was. And I have only used the circular jig attachment, not the router edge yet (I have my Bosch RA deluxe router guide with dust control). For the home hobby wood worker, I could think of better ways for a circular jig. But for the professional, this would definitely be in my arsenal. The Microfence made cutting circles of 7”-infinity easy. Y...
