Eye-Fi Camera SD card with built in Wi-Fi.

01-09-2012 04:44 PM by SPalm | 33 comments »

This is not really a woodworking tool, but Lumber Jocks need to post pictures, and this makes it a lot more fun. I recently bought a 4 GigaByte Eye-Fi SD memory card and plopped it into my camera. It helped a lot with my last posting on LJs. I had set up my little light tent and a tripod to hold the camera. As I took pictures, they instantly appeared on my PC. My wife and I were then able to see them, adjust the positions of the box and the lights, and click away until we liked what we s...

... and now I can't imagine drilling large holes without it

... and now I can't imagine drilling large holes without it

09-07-2010 03:24 PM by John | 6 comments »

I bought this a year or more ago and it sat on the shelf. This past weekend I had to drill several 2” + holes with forstner bits which usually means lots of shallow cuts and smoke and heat. I just happened to notice this can on the shelf, which I had pretty much forgotten about. This lube led to no smoke and I could take deeper “cuts” – e.g. 3/4” ply in maybe 4 plunges instead of 6-8 without. I also had a lot of pocket holes to drill this weekend and I ...

Freud Guide Bushing Adapter Ring installs different than most

Freud Guide Bushing Adapter Ring installs different than most

03-29-2013 08:18 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is an adapter ring for the Freud FT1700VCE router, and it also fits some other Freud routers. It is a brass ring that allows the stock baseplate to accept standard 1-3/16” P.C. style guide bushings. One of the pictures shows a guide bushing installed, however these are purchased separately. The strange thing about this adapter ring is it has no holes or threads to mount it. Instead, it snaps into a recess in the baseplate, and is retained with the heads of two screws. The scre...

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

11-10-2011 04:51 PM by WoodworkGuy | 5 comments »

I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included). It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient...

Wow, I am stunned and ticked off all at the same time. I have owned a Ridgid band saw and drill press for almost 10 yrs. The DP has been stellar without a single issue. I actually have the much maligned Ridgid orange BS and I have it tuned up wonderfully and also love it. Due to these two tools I have added to my Ridgid collection. I have their combo shop vac/blower and also love it. Also, orange is my favorite color. :-) Now the sadness… I had a 4330 planer that I bought fr...

Craftsman Bar clamps

Craftsman Bar clamps

12-29-2012 08:18 AM by Bob Kollman | 1 comment »

I have been using the craftsman bar clamps for several years now. I have about 16 of the 24” clamps, 4 of the 36” clamps and 4 18” clamps. They all have worked with out fail. Over the years these clamps have been subject to above average abuse, I use them frequently and do not clean them as I should. They are study as I have dropped them a lot…and the best thing to note is there plastic handles…yes plastic, they are over sized and easy to grip and easy to ove...

A GOOD LITTLE SAW

A GOOD LITTLE SAW

10-04-2013 10:37 PM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

While this saw is not made anymore (it is made in another version) I found it to suffice for my needs at the time. The covering on the table wore off kind of quick but it did not impact the performance of the saw. For a job site saw the fence was adequate but nothing fantastic. I did put a WoodWorker II saw blade on it and that made a difference in how the saw cut. For over $100.00 it better make a difference!! I was able to 8/4 wood for cutting boards with this saw. I will admit it did not ...

Just love Rob's DVDs

Just love Rob's DVDs

03-21-2008 05:41 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 15 comments »

I watch a lot woodworking DVDs and Rob Cosman’s are some of my favorites. If you are just starting out with your dovetail education, I recommend that you start with this DVD first. Rob doesn’t show how to cut dovetails in this DVD, it’s all about the dovetail saw. This DVD if very unique in that regard. There aren’t any other DVDs out there, that I have found, that are dedicated to a topic like the dovetail saw. Rob covers just about everything you need to know about the dovetail saw an...

Quick solution for 35mm European hinges

Quick solution for 35mm European hinges

12-20-2011 07:10 PM by canadianmajar | 1 comment »

I have been working on several cabinet projects in recent months. In the past I have done the hinges using drill press then just used wood screws. I went to a sale where someone was closing shop and had the ecodrill, so thought I’d give it a try. Not sure I would buy it for the $300 it usually costs. It makes positioning the holes trivial and precise (set the offset from the edge, has index for positioning hinges top to bottom and built in clamps). Depts are perfect every time. Addition...
