MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

MLCS Laser gouded router plate #9098

03-02-2012 03:29 AM by Pete_Jud | 6 comments »

Received this today, and mounted it up to a PC 690 D handle router. It’s kind of one of my “go to” routers in the shop. It was thicker than I expected, with a larger hole to be able to use larger bits than the Rockler clear insert that I had been using on this router, so it will not be able to use standard PC insert guides, and that”s ok with me as I have other plates to use. The laser was “dead nuts” on using a 45 V grove bit, But the feature I like the...

Excellent grinder accessory

Excellent grinder accessory

11-07-2012 09:14 PM by Kreegan | 5 comments »

I got a cheapo 6” bench grinder from Harbor Freight at the same time that I bought my lathe to sharpen my turning tools. It ran just fine with the 2 wheels it came with, but vibrated all over the table with the Norton aluminum oxide wheel that I ordered from Lee Valley. I spent a lot of time messing with the adapter bushings that it came with, trying to get the wheel to run true, but with no luck. Enter the Oneway Balancing System, also purchased from Lee Valley. At first I didn̵...

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...

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

11-04-2014 06:58 PM by woodshopmike | 17 comments »

The things that make this kit great are that it’s quick and easy to use. Woodworkers are famous for “being one tool away from greatness”. Well, I’m here to say that as far as sharpening my hand tools goes, I’m set and this is the only sharpening kit I’ll be using. I’d highly recommend this product to professional and hobbyist woodworkers alike. For my complete tool review check out the post, Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review. Thanks ...

Furniture Building & Lutherie Classes

Furniture Building & Lutherie Classes

09-13-2011 06:18 PM by cellophane | 2 comments »

I stumbled onto Ted’s studio while looking for woodworking classes here in Louisville and have been immensely satisfied with everything I’ve done in the classes. I have taken a class or two at Woodcraft and they were good but there was just something missing for me. After sending an email and visiting the shop I signed up for a relatively intro level class making a shaker style coffee table. The course was in 3 hour sessions and lasted roughly 2 months, meeting once a week. ...

Japanese Woodworking Tools: Their Tradition, Spirit, and UseBy: Toshio Odate ISBN-10: 0941936465 ISBN-13: 978-0941936460 This book is one of the most inspiring woodworking tools books I have read.

This he do in the wonderful tone of a craftsman with a solid long apprenticeship under the wings of a master (his father) and a long lif...

Well worth the extra upfront cost!!

I purchased the Veritas Mark II honing guide from my local Woodcraft store (not sure if they all do it this way, but it was kept behind a door at mine, wasn’t with the other honing guides (for good reason). I took it home, and got it out of it’s packaging, and inspected. The thing that I noticed first was the heft. It is well cast, and the brass knobs are beautifully machined. First impression: high quality tool. The instruction manual is a lengthy read, but super well writ...

Love it!

Love it!

I have never reviewed any tool before, but I like this one so much that I needed to say something.I, like most LJ’s, build my own jigs and push sticks, but I need to cut a lot of small pieces for trim, inlay etc.I have already cut myself on the tablesaw once and that was plenty for the rest of my life!!!! So I bought the basic Grr-ripper with the additional 1/8” leg, set it up and started cutting slightly under 1/8’pieces and my hands were NO WHERE NEAR the blade. What a ...

Simple Green Again

Simple Green Again

07-23-2009 03:41 AM by Kindlingmaker | 19 comments »

I know there have been many praises and reviews for Simple Green to clean all kinds of saw blades but I read another praise in “Woodworkers Resource” about mixing Simple Green 1:4, 1 part Simple Green to 4 parts water. The author let the blades soak for 3 hours and said it worked as good or better than any other product for removing build up on saw blades. I have tried mineral spirits, paint thinner, gasoline, and just about everything else with small success, so I mixed up 1 gallon of Simpl...
