Project V2 Venturi Vacuum Press Kit

Project V2 Venturi Vacuum Press Kit

12-24-2013 06:29 AM by whit | 5 comments »

I couldn’t decide if this should be a project or a review. Technically, it’s both, I guess. The project – a vacuum press – is based on the V2 Venturi vacuum press kit (i.e. you need an air compressor) from http://www.joewoodworker.com. The Project Kit I bought the kit a while ago. Well . . . a few years ago. OK, it was 2006! I wanted to let it age before I put it together. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! The build is really simple...

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

Sawstop ZCI with replaceable inserts - almost, not quite great

01-13-2014 08:14 PM by brtech | 6 comments »

This insert is made by ColliBeck and available direct (via Ebay) or through Infinity. I purchased it from Infinity. The basic idea here is that it’s a CNC machined plate with a replaceable wooden insert. You can swap inserts in a minute or two, and either make your own, or buy them from Infinity. I have the newer version, which doesn’t use parts from the original Sawstop throat plate. The plate is a beast. Heavy, nicely machined, nicely anodized aluminum. The inserts th...

Salad bowl finish

Salad bowl finish

I read about Clapham’s salad bowl finish for turned bowls and started using it on several projects including my last boxes. It goes on fast and dries quickly, give wood a nice glow, food safe.

Horrible quality, not what I expected from Porter Cable

Horrible quality, not what I expected from Porter Cable

02-25-2015 10:37 PM by drobertson | 17 comments »

I am honestly trying to be fair with this review, but I am extremely frustrated with this scroll saw. In the past I have been a happy owner of many Porter Cable products. At this point I am reluctant to buy any more. About a year ago my wife started to enjoy using the old clunky scroll saw we had to make kids puzzles. She got pretty good at it and now does it as a small side business. Each week she spends about 8-10 hours creating puzzles on the scroll saw for sale at our local farmers ...

after 7 years of use my festool ts75 is still a work horse money maker.

when i first used my new festool saw i didn’t really realize it’s full potential but after 7 years of heavy use i have made very difficult cuts that would require jigs and or special table saw setups and router setups a thing of the past.i have made very long compound angle cuts upside down,vertical and horizontal,stack cut whole bundles of exotic veneers and stitch them up with no blow out and with perfect seams. the plunge feature and its stop give you the ability to cut out sla...

First dedicated rip blade

First dedicated rip blade

10-10-2012 03:55 AM by dnick | 14 comments »

After all these years, I finally bought a rip blade, when I saw a good deal on Amazon. Always used combination blades before. What I really liked about the Freud LU87R010 was the thin kerf & the flat tooth grind. Always wanted flat tooth for grooves & spine joints. Blade was great. I ripped some soft Maple & Mahogony & didn’t have to joint the edges. Then when installing the blade, after maybe 20 rips, I just happened to notice the tooth you see in the photo, because it ...

A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

12-15-2013 03:18 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

The HF 3/4” Pipe Clamp with Base fixture is probably the only of my many HF acquisitions that has never given me a problem. After discovering the inadequacies of F-style clamps in the greater than 12” range (too much flex), I took the road traveled by many a woodworker before me and began looking to pipe clamps. I began pricing out Jorgensen Pony pipe clamp fixtures and found them to be a bit more expensive than I had anticipated, so I took a chance and bought 1 fixture from HF ...

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

Grizzly G9955 Bench Top Dual Fan Dust Filter

07-27-2009 06:03 PM by FrankLad | 1 comment »

When I decided to move my small woodworking operation indoors, I knew I would need some type of dust collection system. My projects are small – mostly wooden rings and the occasional ring box or other small item, but I still didn’t want even a small amount of fine dust particles floating around in our house. The good thing for me was I knew I wouldn’t require a full-fledged, expensive unit. After a bit of research (thanks to the guys in the LJ forums for suggestions!) I...

A great product

A great product

05-15-2009 04:04 AM by Karson | 19 comments »

I’ve used this product for years. I picked it up at a wood show and I’ve not seen it since. You can buy it online, but I need to find a supplier. I use this product on bandsaw blades, especially good when resawing. I also use it on my Mortising machine to lubricate the drill bit in the chisels. It makes the chips slide easier and cuts down on the heat generated by all of the wood going through the chisels. The Par Enterprises web site
