disappointed in Veritas

My son presented with me with a Veritas low angle spokeshave for Christmas. We were going to use it for shaping an oak axe handle we had cut out. I initially tested it on Christmas day using some pine and cherry scraps around the shop. Worked great on this fairly soft wood. However when we later tried to shape the oak handle the problems began. The blade is held in place by two bolt heads which contact side bevels on the blade. The instructions for the shave say you need to sand the back of ...

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

11-04-2014 06:58 PM by woodshopmike | 17 comments »

The things that make this kit great are that it’s quick and easy to use. Woodworkers are famous for “being one tool away from greatness”. Well, I’m here to say that as far as sharpening my hand tools goes, I’m set and this is the only sharpening kit I’ll be using. I’d highly recommend this product to professional and hobbyist woodworkers alike. For my complete tool review check out the post, Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review. Thanks ...

This review is from the January 2012 issue of our LJ eMag. Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details) Wild & Wacky Birdhouses and Feeders Wild and wacky is for sure!!! When I first got the book I immediately started picking out the birdhouses that I would like Rick to build this year. But, before I knew it I think I had every birdhouse checked. There is a cute “piano” feeder that will be a perfect draw prize at my brot...

Handy tools everyone should have.

I finally had a real need to use the Dremel Saw-Max I recieved for Christmas last year. Had an entertainment center to cut down for a smaller area. I wanted to make the simplest cuts to remove height from the cabinet. A straight edge and my Saw-Max did the trick. I was concerned that the abrasive type blades would not be able to cut cleanly without tearout, and may cause burning. Not to worry. This little guy is the best. I am more than pleased with the performance. I have now used ...

It's worth it.

Over the last decade or so that I’ve owned my Craftsman contractor’s saw, I’ve come to demand the utmost, penultimate level of mediocrity from it while telling myself that the jump from this saw to the Powermatic 66 is sort of like jumping from my $500 Remington 1100 shotgun to a $3000 custom Baretta over-under: the object is to break clay birds, right? And both throw a lot of lead in the air, which is all that counts, right? And yet, I’ve learned to tune my table sa...

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...

Trend Airsheild, My lungs thank you

Trend Airsheild, My lungs thank you

11-07-2009 07:42 PM by Andrew | 11 comments »

I have been on the fence about buying one of these for a year now. Christmas is on its way, and Andy has some work ahead of him to provide family and freinds with the gifts they deserve. There is a lot of wood dust that is going to be produced, and I don’t need to store it in my lungs this year. Anyway, this is a positive air preasure filtrating system. Means it constantly blows filtered air over your face so dirty wood dusty air does not enter. It works well. The battery will last...
