Telpro The Troll® 49 Panel Handler

Telpro The Troll® 49 Panel Handler

293 days ago by JoelB | 7 comments »

Just bought this to save my back when a client spec’d a project that required 20 sheets of 3/4” MDF. The Troll is an awesome back saver that makes it very easy to move sheet goods around the shop. My storage is roughly 75 feet away from my tablesaw so I needed a simple and inexpensive way to move the 20 sheets around with a minimum of lifting. Basically, to use, you lay the Troll against the sheet at about midpoint. Then you lift/tilt the panel until the lip on the bottom of ...

“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...

DeWalt Sander Review

DeWalt Sander Review

444 days ago by bear2 | 13 comments »

I have recently replaced my Porter Cable 333VS random orbital sander with a DeWalt D26453 random orbital sander. If I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS I would have. I have found three problems with the DeWalt.1. The dust bag is useless. It stops little dust and requires dragging a hose. The Porter Cable’s bag was superior and for most operations the supplied bag was fine. Seldom had to use a hose.2. The top of the DeWalt is domed and is hard to balance during sand paper ins...

More Than A "Whittle" Fun

More Than A "Whittle" Fun

883 days ago by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

This review is from the March 2012 issue of our LJ eMag Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details) The Big Book of Whittle Fun by Chris Lubkemann is a little “big book” filled with a “wot of whittlin’ fun”. Small in stature (a great size for taking with you when planning on doing a little whittling) but big in content! This book has over thirty projects and is an inspiration for many more. Games – che...

Excellent Wood Cleaner

Excellent Wood Cleaner

183 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 17 comments »

Not a great tale of restoration as others in LJs post, but a review that confirms what others told me: “BAR KEEPERS FRIEND” is a very capable cleaner for wood tools. In this case, of Stanley No. 32 rule that had certainly seen better aesthetic days. As shown above, the ruler was not very legible when I got it. Here’s the rule from a farther distance. I posted a couple pictures of my flea market find on the Marking and Measuring thread and a discussion ensued re: wa...

A Different League

A Different League

613 days ago by mcase | 3 comments »

Well I finally did it and got a Lie-Nielsen. I wasn’t planning on getting the bronze, but they were temporarily out of the iron so I sprung for it. I like the weight in a smoother anyway and it looks totally cool too. What can I say? Its in a whole different league than my previous purchases. I didn’t have to touch this plane. It was ready to go: flat sole, all the edges eased, flat and square blade, the chip breaker was square and true (and long enough), no slop on in the depth ...

A Bit Better

A Bit Better

727 days ago by Roger Clark aka Rex | 17 comments »

I had some brad point wood drill bits that were not drilling a decent hole which I was about to replace. The I remembered everyone’s advice about getting the best tools you can (within budget restraints) if you want and expect quality and long lasting performance. Well after looking and reading for some time about different bit manufacturers and user’s reports on their performance, I decided to purchase a 7 piece set of Colts for about $18.00.My God was I blown away by their pe...

First New Marking Tools / Love Them

First New Marking Tools / Love Them

346 days ago by 69BBNova | 4 comments »

I ordered these from The Best Things Thursday, they arrived today (Saturday) well packed, no damage… Except for my vintage Stanley No. 98 these are the only woodworking only marking tools I own that are really quality as I expected (hoped)... They have a nice heft to them which is good because I have always like knowing they are in my hand. Light tools never feel right to me… They have a nice balance to them, I don’t know any other way to describe it they just felt ...
