I almost ordered some of these today, but didn’t when I saw they wanted to charge thirteen bucks for shipping two of them. Later, going through my jig supplies, there they were. These things are small. Very small. So small, they wouldn’t break the one ounce mailing barrier. Still, it would have cost thirteen dollars to ship them. Did I mention that yet? To be fair, they are very handy critters to have around, since they do their assigned task well, which is to fit in T tracks...

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

11-10-2014 08:09 AM by sepeck | 5 comments »

Just as I was finishing ripping some lumber on my table saw, standing off the side slightly, the cut piece got bumped a bit as I hit the power switch. As the blade spun down the piece slowly rotated into the blade. I knew there was no chance of me moving in time. My t-shirt got ripped and I used quite a few paper towels to clean up the surface wound (not to mention OW!) on my stomach. My wife said she’d get me an apron for my birthday (and evidently REASONS!). Years ago I got to ...

A solid, quiet performer

Update 2/3/13- Still like the product. Sears sells tons of accessories at reasonable prices. I still haven’t found any downside to the vacuum. Highly rocommend## About 4 years ago, I bought a Shopvac from Lowes. I cant remember the specs, but it was 10 gallons or so and supposedly 4-5 HP. They were selling them on Black Friday for $40. I actually like the vacuum pretty well and felt it was a good value. So when Lowes had the same vac on sale the following year, I bought a...

Updated ClearVue Mini CV06 with cone is much improved

Updated ClearVue Mini CV06 with cone is much improved

11-21-2014 02:56 PM by Bill1974 | 5 comments »

I saw that ClearVue has updated their Mini CV06 shop vacuum separator. I called them up and asked if it would be possible to update my previous generation CV06 and they said it was possible. They sent me the parts (lower cone, a couple of gaskets and hardware) for $40 + $10 for shipping. Money well spent in the long run. The update really improves the separation to the point with almost nothing gets into the shop vac. I took apart the CV06 off the old shop vac housing that I had at...

Back Savor (Needed this a long time ago!)

Back Savor (Needed this a long time ago!)

On my recent trip to the IWF in Atlanta I came across this little jewl. Its made by Southworth. Its an electric hydraulic lift table. Comes fully assembled ready to go, Just plug it in and your set. The lifting capacity is 1500 lbs. with the press of a foot pedal. The top measures 30’ x 60”. Starting at 6” off the floor and rasing to 42” at its tallest position. This is a jewl! I wish I had this a very long time ago. I’ve only been using for a few day...

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

Fundamentals Everyone Can Learn From

07-20-2009 06:09 PM by ShannonRogers | 4 comments »

I took a trip up to Chester County, PA this weekend to take a class with Chuck Bender’s school, The Acanthus Workshop. Chuck goes by the handle Acanthuscarver here on LJ. What a treat! I have been woodworking now for 7 years and hardly do I think of myself as an expert, but I admit to being a little dubious as to how much I would get out of a fundamentals I class. Because the focus was on hand tools, I was more optimistic because I am pretty new to the way of the Schwarz having R...

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

I ordered this to tackle the nail pulling process I encountered while reclaiming some Bowling alley floors. As I mentioned in a comment on my blog, I usually am not inclined to order anything online that I have not been able to experience first hand. but since I was desperate, and it just so happened that this product was mentioned a couple of times here and there just when I was looking for nail pulling devices, I figured I’d take the plunge and go for it – a little out of the us...

Indeed a great tool

Indeed a great tool

03-16-2009 03:11 PM by NetPro | 12 comments »

Given that when available I like USA or German made tools, I researched this tool on the Web and found nothing available. The LION Pootatuck has been dicontinued and it appears all stock depleted. Not even a used one on e-bay. Went ahead and order one from Grizzly and was plesantly surprised by the quality of this tool.It was right on the money for both the 45 and 90 degrees preset on the right and left sides.Not that is hard to calibrate it if you need to, but I have several highly accura...
