Has it really been five years? This week Charles Neil released the two hundred forty-fifth episode of his “Mastering Woodworking” show. For the one or two people in the woodworking world who don’t already know, “Mastering Woodworking” is a weekly video series produced in the workshop of Charles Neil, one of the biggest names in the craft. But is it any good? Well, as someone who has been a subscriber for a good portion of the show’s run, I think I’m qualified to give my opinion on the matter…...

Hardware City Tools Replacement Knobs and Totes

Hardware City Tools Replacement Knobs and Totes

12-22-2012 12:13 AM by BigDawg | 4 comments »

I recently acquired a Stanley #4, Type 11 plane which was in desperate need of restoration. I found the plane at a flea market for $6.00, so if it was a dog then what am I really out? The plane’s body, frog and lever cap were in good shape, so I decided to clean it up and make a user out of it. Unfortunately, both the knob and tote were in horrible shape, which leads me to this review. I found Bill Rittner on the internet after doing a Google search on replacement plane totes. As lu...

Sweet little tool

Sweet little tool

12-19-2009 06:52 PM by Drewskie | 17 comments »

This is one of those tools that you buy for specific uses, so naturally I hemmed and haw for a while before purchasing. Over the last few months I have experienced using the Fein tool from time to time on different job sites. Once you use this type of tool you under stand the convenience, instead of breaking out you Japanese saw. I’m not one for long winded review, but I will say this Bosch always makes a quality tool and the quality, power and easy of use are on point with the Fein plus it...

Surface mounts quickly and easily. Maximum 20-Amps. This is a nice big On/Of...

BowlSaw

BowlSaw

01-31-2009 03:43 PM by DougTx | 10 comments »

I had a very good experience with the 6” BowlSaw. The pictures show a black walnut blank that I now have a bowl and another piece that can be turned into a smaller bowl and/or a box. I followed the instructions included with the tool and did not have any problems. I started at 120 rpms and finished at 400 rpms. Will probably get the 8” tool and thus can core larger blanks and possibly make 3 bowl out of one blank.DougTx

Wanna break something...?

Wanna break something...?

02-08-2011 02:56 AM by christopheralan | 2 comments »

This scary looking thing is the Dead On 18-Inch Annihilator Utility and Wrecking Bar. It is used for demolition and general purposes. It is kind of a Swiss Army Knife of hammers with many uses: Hammer, Nail Puller, Board Straightener Drywall Demolition Axe, Wrench, Tile Puller/Ripper, Wire Stripper, and Bottle Opener. It weighs in at almost 4 pounds. Besides intimidating innocent 2×4’s and drywall, this hammer is great. I have used it for day-to-day woodwork and for building heavy-...

Wicked Sharp Chisels

Wicked Sharp Chisels

10-24-2015 01:59 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, Before I get started here, I want to say something up front. The article about getting a wicked sharp chisel didn’t even pay a nod to the scary sharp method. Anyhow – I needed to sharpen some chisels so I decided to be your guinea pig. The instructions say buy a piece of glass so you have a very flat surface to work from. I went ahead and got some pieces of marble. Heck – the marble I bought was perfect for the job. Lowe’s was blowing out some 8X4 inch ...

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Improved switch design, great dust collection

Update: I’ve owned this sander now for over a year, and it has gotten a lot of use. It’s been a great tool with no problems, so I’ll leave the five stars in place. The original review follows: I haven’t had this sander long yet, so my 5 star rating is based ondesign and recent performance. After I have used it for a longerperiod of time, I’ll come back and update my rating if warranted. I really want to comment on two aspects of the sander design. First,t...

Excellent budget blade!

Excellent budget blade!

10-05-2009 02:33 PM by Mike Gager | 28 comments »

I just recently bought this blade after reading some of the reviews on the home depot website. I am very satisfied with it and think its an excellent choice for someone on a budget wanting a nice cutting blade. I havent used any of the high end blades such as the forrest woodworker2 but i would be mighty surprised if they cut that much better then this blade does. I tried it on red oak, pine, douglas fir, MDF, and particle board melamine and it left a super smooth cut in all of them with no t...
