Woodpeckers TS-6  T-Square

Woodpeckers TS-6 T-Square

09-28-2014 04:08 PM by timbertailor | 2 comments »

I recently did a review of the” Woodpecker’s 6” Carpenter’s Square” and I use it a great deal. But, when I need to do more detailed work, the precision of the TS-6 is a welcome addition to anyone’s measurement and layout arsenal. It is 6” long, as the name implies and is just the right size for most small jobs like mortis, tenons, hole layout, jointery, hinge and drawer layout, inlays, etc. The ruler has 1/32” micro holes for use with a me...

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

Hooray for Harbor Freight and to heck with Fastenall

12-06-2010 11:46 PM by lilredweldingrod | 20 comments »

Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lolI could no...

Terrible leveling, poor abrasion resistance

Terrible leveling, poor abrasion resistance

11-09-2014 02:07 AM by Scott C. | 4 comments »

I’ve waited to review this stuff as a I wanted to try it out for a while before making my mind up about it. I bought a couple of gallons to finish some kitchen drawers and had a good amount leftover which I used on a couple of furniture projects and a jewelry box. My main gripes are it’s leveling properties and abrasion resistance suck, both with spraying and foam brush. I can’t get a smooth finish with runs, drips and brush marks. It scratches really easily, after a month o...

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

10-27-2013 02:14 PM by b2rtch | 2 comments »

While I am writing reviews, I would like to add my name to the long list of Byrd Tool ’s satisfied customers. The date on my blog tells me that I installed this head on my 8 inches Powermatic jointer 445 days ago. Of course I do not use this jointer everyday, yet I never had to replace a cutter , even if one has a small chip .Not only this cutter head gives a wonderful finish but in addition it is very quiet, thing that I really enjoy.The 3 HP motor that I installed in this jointer h...

Earn your "masters" degree in woodworking without leaving the shop!

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…...

6" and 12" Combination Squares

6" and 12" Combination Squares

10-14-2011 03:56 AM by DylanC | 4 comments »

Bought both for less than $20 at a local big-box store. Both checked out as square at full extension when I “showed the line to the square”. Also, both have cast steel heads and stainless rulers. The 12” has deep engravings and the 6” is etched. Both have scratch awls stored in the heads, also.

Now a standard part of my workflow

Now a standard part of my workflow

I have been using the Jessem Clear Cut TS Stock Guides for about two months now on my table saw and I felt it was time for a review. These are similar in concept to their Clear Cut Stock Guides for the router table but they have some unique differences that make them significantly better. First, let’s start with unboxing and installation. The guides are beautifully packaged and come with the guides themselves fully assembled. I have a SawStop PCS with the T-Glide fence onto which you...

Incredibly Straight, Incredible Value.

Incredibly Straight, Incredible Value.

05-05-2010 04:00 PM by deeznutz | 10 comments »

Well, the title just about says it all. I’ve been getting more in to hand tools (seems we all are) lately and the construction grade level and HD 12” combo square were just no longer straight enough. I needed an actually straight reference edge that I could trust and to be honest, was a bit skeptical of the price on these (~ $20 Shipped). After getting it, I can say I would highly recommend it. It’s the straightest tool in my little shop and gives me the confidence I nee...

Pretty Nice Carving Gouges

Pretty Nice Carving Gouges

10-29-2010 12:23 AM by Woodwrecker | 4 comments »

I wanted a set of carving gouges , but I couldn’t afford to spend an arm and a leg.I was pretty surprised when these arrived and turned out to be nicer then I thought they would be.Given the price of around $11.00 a gouge, these are nice.They range from 1/4” to 1” and were sharp enough to use right out of the box, but I’ll hone them up real good and give a report a little down the road on how they work out.I gave four stars based on my initial impression, but we’...
