May, 2010this review is from the May, 2010 issue of our eMag The Ultimate Band Saw Book by our very own Donna Menke As always I am as fascinated by the author’s story as I am the book itself. Reading about Donna having the balance of a mother’s push to try new things along with a father’s guidance at doing a job well, to using art, math, and engineering skills to create the plans for the band saw boxes, well, I was hooked from the start! I knew the book was going to be...

Protect Your Ears

Protect Your Ears

10-31-2008 02:26 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 10 comments »

Recently one my posts came up where I talked about ZEM hearing protection. At the time I was amazing at how well they worked. It’s been over a year now of using them, and I won’t use anything else now. They are very comfortable to wear, for long periods if needed. They are lightweight and don’t have to go “deep” into the ear canal. The foam earpieces just enter the outside of the ear canal. They really don’t feel like they are in your ear, like other earplugs. I’m not sure if I can r...

My first REAL cordless driver!

My first REAL cordless driver!

04-15-2008 04:35 AM by Tess | 6 comments »

Bought this 18V Lithium-Ion Drill-Driver from Home Hardware, refurbished, for $190 CDN. Sound steep? Well, I’ve got to tell you, it’s worth every penny! I used to do home renovations for fun and now I’ve gotten into professional contracting. I’d gone through a few cheapie cordless drills just with the around-the-house use and I was never happy with them. They were never robust enough (any screws over 2” and I wouldn’t have even tried the cordless). ...

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

Nice "extra" saw to have on-hand

01-15-2013 04:13 AM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

I was on the fence between 3 and 4 stars. I ultimately went with four because, in the end, the saw meets my needs and expectations. But it took a bit of work to get it there I work out of a one-car garage which I share with lawn care tools and my kids bikes, scooter, etc. Oh, and there is also a snap-on rollbox and a motorcycle in there somewhere too :) That said, I have to get creative with how I store my woodworking stuff which includes five floor machines, workbench, etc. Granted, m...

The other day one of my co-workers was telling me about a new scent in the line of products she carries (wax scent bars) and of coarse she thought of me, probably because I drive her nuts talking about woodworking (BTW I work with all woman) Anyway back on task :).... The scent to me didnt smell like wood, Kind of a prerequisite I thought, but its not a bad scent either, confusing right? When I think of my woodshop I think of fresh saw dust early in the morning but this missed the mark a bit....

Live Edge Table

Live Edge Table

04-28-2013 04:40 PM by Justin57 | 11 comments »

I recently went to visit with my friend Charles Neil (New Market, VA), at his shop. Our friend Jim Pell was there building a corner cabinet and during my visit I went with Jim to C.P. Johnson Lumber (Elkwood, VA), to pick out some tiger maple. While there CP found me a very nice slab of cherry (8/4×17” x 7’), so I bought it with the intent to make a sofa table with a live edge look. With assistance and input from Charles, I spent 2 days carving the top, 2 days carving the ...

Expensive but Awesome

Expensive but Awesome

09-04-2014 04:23 AM by Manitario | 9 comments »

I hate emptying the bin on my cyclone, but I hate even more when I forget to and fill my filters with dust and chips; basically means an evening wasted cleaning out chips from the filters and then multiple rounds of blowing the fine dust out. I have my cyclone in its own room to keep the noise down so I can’t see the bin…I originally had a Oneida Dust Sentry, it was ok but was inconsistent. After moving to a new shop and filling the filters 3 times in a row, I looked for an altern...

THIS STUFF IS GREAT TO THE LAST DROP

THIS STUFF IS GREAT TO THE LAST DROP

If you have ever had rust on something where it shouldnt be… this is the stuff for you! Directions are as simple as submersing your rusted piece in the solution from 30 minutes to as long as you can stand to wait. Evapo-rust has no detectable odor out of the bottle and is a pale yellow color. After i submersed my piece(antique c-clamp) for a few hrs, noticeable progress had been made. I wasnt quite satisfied after the piece hd been submersed after a few hrs, as it was in bad shape, so I...

Great plate and easy to install

Great plate and easy to install

08-05-2010 04:20 PM by Vrtigo1 | 4 comments »

Let me start by saying that I bought this plate for my first router table, so I don’t have any frame of reference for comparing it to other products. With that being said, I was impressed with the quality of the plate and the cutout template. The price was right, at about $50 from Amazon. I was a little worried about getting a phenolic plate and the possibility of it warping when I hang my Hitachi M12V from it, but the plate feels very strong and stable. Only time will tell, but I...
