Wicked Sharp Chisels

Wicked Sharp Chisels

10-24-2015 01:59 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, Before I get started here, I want to say something up front. The article about getting a wicked sharp chisel didn’t even pay a nod to the scary sharp method. Anyhow – I needed to sharpen some chisels so I decided to be your guinea pig. The instructions say buy a piece of glass so you have a very flat surface to work from. I went ahead and got some pieces of marble. Heck – the marble I bought was perfect for the job. Lowe’s was blowing out some 8X4 inch ...

Very good ripping (and crosscutting!) blade

Very good ripping (and crosscutting!) blade

04-27-2011 04:57 PM by dedalo | 22 comments »

Last week I received this saw blade from Rockler. This is my first “professional” blade, until now just used the blades that came with the machines I bought or some cheap blades I could get a local stores. In my last proyect I realized 2 things (using the dewalt blade that came with the saw) 1.- Big quantity of wood consumed by each cut2.- The finish was VERY poor I couldn’t glue the faces without sanding… The things that made me choose this blade: 1.- ...

Some seriously slippery surfaces.

Some seriously slippery surfaces.

01-22-2014 06:46 PM by BennyG | 17 comments »

This product is used to lubricate any surface in the shop where drag and hang ups across in feed/out feed tables, fences and the like are problematic. Used in place of silicone or other lubricants that would contaminate the woods/materials surface and create a build up of lube and sawdust on equipment and machinery. I have used a similar more expensive product in a few of the larger production shops that I have worked in over the years and have seen first-hand the benefits of using a dry l...

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

09-28-2012 07:04 PM by Tom Godfrey | 13 comments »

Want to review a book that I just purchased a few days ago. It’s called “Artisans & Money”, written by Joe Rollins. Some of you may remember me posting a review of his lathe cutting tools and as of today I have had 1146 views with 7 comments. Not sure if any of you ordered any of these tools but if you are starting out in wood turning or even if you have been turning for years I still feel this is one of the best investments you can make. Why? Great product at a lower price than other see...

Very handy workbench accessory

Very handy workbench accessory

10-05-2012 06:23 PM by Kreegan | 11 comments »

I purchased the Veritas Planing Stop from Lee Valley (http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=69837&cat=1,41637) about a month ago. I’d had a planing stop I made myself, but I managed to crack it, so I decided to give this one a try. The stop is about 10 in wide and a little over 1 in deep. It has 2 metal posts that fit into standard 3/4 in dog holes on your workbench. The posts slide along the bottom of the stop in a T track. I have dog holes in 2 patterns on my bench: para...

My first attempt at building from plans....

My first attempt at building from plans....

05-05-2011 09:06 PM by RONFINCH | 10 comments »

It’s a little scary stepping up your projects in size and difficulties. Since I normally am totally lost when looking at most plans, I thought this would be a good project to start with. I wanted to build this chair out of Cypress, however, my local wood store was out of premium Cypress and convinced me to use Spanish Cedar instead….... won’t do that again. I figured I might could stretch 45 board feet into 2 chairs. So, ordering 45 board feet I was charged for 62 board feet...

First impressions of my new air cleaner

First impressions of my new air cleaner

09-14-2010 06:04 PM by lsemarc | 12 comments »

I thought for years that dust collection and air quality in the workshop wasn’t that important. After my grandfather passed away from lung cancer I decided that I should do something about protecting mine. Without my wife knowing I went and picked one up and figured I had a couple of weeks before she noticed the charge on our account. Due to traveling I was unable to get it installed for about two weeks. The guilt about not telling her finally got to me and I told her what I did, surpri...

good saw guide with small problems

good saw guide with small problems

09-10-2012 10:44 AM by americancanuck | 5 comments »

I found this to work very well with one problem. The little red pointer that is used to line up the saw blade with the scale on the beam covers up the numbers making it impossible to see. a good solution would be to make this peice out of clear plastic. Other than that I found this to be acurate and easy to use. It’s a godsend when ripping down full sheets of plywood. Storage with the saw connected is a problem so I have been removing the saw after each use. The problem with this is th...

Excellent dovetail saw w/ unique design

Excellent dovetail saw w/ unique design

02-13-2011 06:34 AM by PflugervilleSteve | 2 comments »

Kevin Drake of Glen-Drake Toolworks has been touring with the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool events. They visited Austin in January 2011 and after lurking and listening then finally trying one of their dovetail saw I decided to get one. REALLY GOOD DECISION. From their web site: “There are no teeth at the front of the blade and no teeth at the back of the blade. This means the saw works more like a power saw works, it moves before and after each cut. You accelerate into each cut and relax...
