Onsrud 12 tooth 8" Dado set

Onsrud 12 tooth 8" Dado set

10-25-2011 06:27 PM by Dallas | 1 comment »

I bought this set, mostly on a whim, since my BT3100 isn’t really built for 8” dado blades. Nevertheless, being addicted to eBay as I am, I was looking at different Dado sets and found this one to be inexpensive, but with my experience with another Onsrud blade thought I would take a chance. When I received the blade set, in a nice wooden box, I just had to try it. I have lately been trying to make some box joints in Chinaberry wood, which is really brittle. My usual method is ...

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...

What a value

What a value

07-15-2011 05:38 AM by BentheViking | 2 comments »

So I had wanted an air compressor, but didn’t really feel that I had the space and money for one. I felt that a table saw would be a much more worthy purchase. At the same point I am always looking into what new tools I can buy and poking on homedepot.com I found this guy. Originally $60 but they had it down for $40. I had some credit card rewards so after shipping and tax it only cost me like $13. This is a reconditioned kit and while it certainly looks it (some small scratches and ...

Pictures for Alba

Pictures for Alba

11-25-2010 07:15 PM by Bluepine38 | 10 comments »

I mentioned a cross slide rest to Alba thinking it might help him and his “Jolly Rogues” in some way. He askedme to show some pictures, so here are the pictures and my review, I will do a blog on the rebuild of this wonderful old machine later. The Cross Slide Rest was originally made by Delta to enable people to do metalwork on a lathe. I am a 71 year young craftsman with a slightly hard used body, I just did not think my parts would wear out this quick, so I have a little pro...

Very Capable Budget 20V Impact Driver

Very Capable Budget 20V Impact Driver

06-01-2015 05:10 PM by CharlesA | 6 comments »

I just finished a putting new decking and railing on our deck (okay, so my son and his friend did a lot of the work). I have two Bosch 12v drivers that I really like for woodworking use, but I figured a more robust tool would come in handy for the deck. I found a pretty thorough review of 18/20v impact drivers at Toolguyd.com—While the Milwaukee, Makita, and DeWalt were all rated really highly, he suggested this Porter Cable was a good budget choice. The prices on the highly rated dr...

General Internationl cyclone dust collector

General Internationl cyclone dust collector

07-09-2015 05:08 AM by Steve | 5 comments »

Used my cyclone dust collector today for the first time and does that sucker ever suck the shavings. I reduced the 6” dust outlet to 4” and had no issues at all except the noise, oh well it does say hearing protection required.

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

Shapton GlassStones Are All You Need

01-04-2013 11:44 AM by BigDawg | 15 comments »

I owned a series of Norton waterstones previously, and while they worked well, they didn’t perform as well as I would’ve liked. Plus you have to make sure they get a good soaking well before your sharpening session, which creates a wet mess. I took Bob Van Dyke’s sharpening class at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in November. I had looked at the Shapton stones many times before, but I have always hesitated due to the high price tag. After the class I bought a set of 1000 and...

Review of the Makita Drill/Driver BHP452

Review of the Makita Drill/Driver BHP452

01-05-2009 04:58 PM by toolman | 3 comments »

We just got done testing this Makita drill and love it. Anyone who has worked with or owned one of these drills knows what we are talking about. Lots of power provided by the 3.0amp Lithium Ion battery, which also helps reduce the weight. We ran it trhough some test and took some video, quit impressive. Overall this drill has great balance and lots of power

The last one you will ever need (or want)

The last one you will ever need (or want)

Good evening LJ’s, Last week I ordered and received this gripper Model 200Y, this on the verge of a cabinet job :) Well friends I put it to the test ripping anything from plywood cabinet sides to face frame materials and it lived up to their claims. the green sticky rubber really grips the wood without sliding and keeping it renewed is simply using denatured Alcohol to clean it. the plate on the bottom assists in helping rip thin stock, remove it with a simple loosening of two wing ...

Great workhorse for my woodworking, but I often wish I have variable speed

Great workhorse for my woodworking, but I often wish I have variable speed

11-26-2014 03:59 PM by paxorion | 15 comments »

This Dewalt sander was a phenominal upgrade to my old Craftsman sander. I got this sander to replace the Craftsman it because vibration feedback I felt from my Craftsman tended to leave my arm with a “funny tingling” feeling after extended use. Fearing long-term issues, I thought I was due for a replacement. Good: The sander has been my go-to sander for well over a year now. It took a little getting used to the power switch from a rocker style on my Craftsman, but over time,...
