A Bit Better

A Bit Better

690 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...

Great little nailer

Great little nailer

2364 days ago by Roger Strautman | 5 comments »

This was a micro nailer that I bought in hopes of fastening trim on the very end of the piece without splitting and not just any trim but oak and it worked great. This 23 gauge nailer is very light weight and can shoot 1/2”- 1” headless pins so small that if you stain the piece you have to look very hard to even see the small spot of the head. The pins are sold in packets of 2600 form $7-$12. The only downfall that I have found with this gun is that it has no safety so one has to ...

TWW finishing book & DVD

TWW finishing book & DVD

1130 days ago by Sodabowski | 11 comments »

I just received my copy of Marc Spagnuolo’s first book, along with the “Best Of 2009” Guild videos DVD. As I can’t afford a subscription to the WW Guild, this was a good option for me to support him a little, plus I like tech/art books, and this is one of those: finishing is both a bit technical and absolutely has something to do with art. So for a quick review: if you’re used to Mark’s videos, you’ll be into well-known territory, the book reads...

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

1113 days ago by degoose | 6 comments »

Received my copy of the new WoodWhisperer book, Finishing, It ain't over till it's over... by Marc Spagnuolo.. A no nonsense approach to a very important part of any project… the finishing… Marc takes a subject many of us cringe about and shows us, in his inimitable style, how to make the most of various finishing techniques… from the initial preparation to the final buff… This book does not bog us down with technical jargon and formulas but gives us a c...

Magnogrip Tape Holder ... A great concept, poorly implemented

Magnogrip Tape Holder ... A great concept, poorly implemented

541 days ago by PASs | 9 comments »

NEW INFORMATION IN COMMENTS SECTION…I purchased the Magnogrip Quick Snap Magnetic Tape Measure Holder a few weeks ago.I loved the concept, a quick release for my tape measure.I constantly fight with my tape measures, fumbling to hook them on my belt or pocket, or cussing the tape pouch/holder on my tool belts. So the possibility of just snapping in on was a big draw. And at less than $10 at Home Depot I figured I’d give it a try. I tried a couple of tape measures on the tape h...

Quality Control issues at Freud

Quality Control issues at Freud

442 days ago by colvinatch | 2 comments »

I recently purchased this dado set at Woodcraft and after making my first dado cut I noticed a ridge in the middle of the cut, as if the chippers were a fraction smaller that the outside blades, I took it back and exchanged it for another, which did exactly the same thing. When I returned to Woodcraft they put it on one of their table saws and got the same result, a noticeably higher ridge in the middle of the dado cut making the bottom uneven. They began pulling all these off their shelves...

Valfor Tools Bit Vise -- Router Bit maintenance and sharpening.   ( $69.95 )

Valfor Tools Bit Vise -- Router Bit maintenance and sharpening. ( $69.95 )

305 days ago by philphoto | 8 comments »

The need for the bit vise is at first glance, not exactly obvious. Many if not most woodworkers are less than diligent with maintenance and sharpening their bits and tools. It is of importance to note that a casual woodworker may not spend big dollar amounts on their bits, however all bits should be cleaned and sharpened, to operate as designed. The casual woodworker may not be aware of the need for maintenance, and some woodworkers just throw the dull bit away. As a retired professional ...

1553 days ago by d_webb | 4 comments »

Like everyone else, I’ve used tons of different bike locks and padlocks to protect my tools and equipment. But I recently found a really nice cable system that is specifically designed to protect contractors’ tools. It’s called a Skyd Cable System. It has a 20 foot retractable cable that is housed in a diamond plate aluminum box. The box is bolted into the bed of your truck. Mine is in between the wheel-well and tailgate, and it’s out of the way in that location. Overall, the cable sy...
