I picked up this hoist to lift a jointer out of my truck. It worked great in both directions, it has a built in brake. The jointer I lifted is 260 lbs. I got on also for a grand total of 520 lbs. .......... it still worked smooth and the roof didnt cave in. I spread the weight across 3 garage joists and put 2×4 braces on both sides of the truck. ok ok so theres a little redneck in my family LOL. This hoist will work great for picking up shop equipment when needed. No need for 4 budd...

A Bit Better

A Bit Better

08-22-2012 05:50 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 17 comments »

I had some brad point wood drill bits that were not drilling a decent hole which I was about to replace. The I remembered everyone’s advice about getting the best tools you can (within budget restraints) if you want and expect quality and long lasting performance. Well after looking and reading for some time about different bit manufacturers and user’s reports on their performance, I decided to purchase a 7 piece set of Colts for about $18.00.My God was I blown away by their pe...

Well, s**t in my hat, an Aldi jigsaw (No, really)

Well, s**t in my hat, an Aldi jigsaw (No, really)

OK, fellow jocks, I know you’re snickering: “this newbie bought a power tool at Aldi.” And yes, I probably would have laughed at it too but damn if it isn’t a decent saw. The background: Needed to cut some circles out of plywood. Was going to use points at Sears, but missed the sale on the C3 by a day. Figured I’d just grab something cheap at HFT until I could get what I really wanted. The woman made me stop at Aldi on the way to grab some dinner stuff and ...

First New Marking Tools / Love Them

First New Marking Tools / Love Them

09-07-2013 09:42 PM by 69BBNova | 4 comments »

I ordered these from The Best Things Thursday, they arrived today (Saturday) well packed, no damage… Except for my vintage Stanley No. 98 these are the only woodworking only marking tools I own that are really quality as I expected (hoped)... They have a nice heft to them which is good because I have always like knowing they are in my hand. Light tools never feel right to me… They have a nice balance to them, I don’t know any other way to describe it they just felt ...

Even Better With A Few Modifications

Even Better With A Few Modifications

10-21-2014 09:38 PM by OSU55 | 7 comments »

I’ve had one of these for about 2-1/2 years. Typical of Lee Valley / Veritas tools, everything’s great. You can read all about adjustments, available blades, and the rest in the manual from their website. The tool provides excellent results, but does have a learning curve, and there are a couple of things that make it an even better tool. Initially I ended up with an overly aggressive cut. It would dig in and stop, spin around, sometimes feeling like a slot car on a wiggly piece of track ...

A Good Value

A Good Value

03-17-2014 12:06 AM by Purrmaster | 16 comments »

This review is for the Diablo/Freud 10 inch, 40 tooth circular saw blade. Model number D1040X I got this at Home Depot for around $30 or so. My Freud blades needed sharpening and I needed to put something on my tablesaw. I was very pleasantly surprised by this blade. It rips almost as well as my Freud 30 tooth (thin kerf) ripping blade. It leaves a smooth finish when crosscutting. The blade stayed sharp as long as my Freud blades did. Which is unsurprising, considering it is actu...

Plane Restorers Take Note!!!

Plane Restorers Take Note!!!

01-17-2014 02:09 AM by poopiekat | 20 comments »

After seeing some plane restorations by LJ ‘ToddJB’ back in December, I was glad to see someone asked him how he got such a terrific surface on the sides of his planes. His ‘workhorse’ as he referred to it, was a simple burnishing wheel! He claimed it would take a plane from rusty to shiny in one step! I had to have one of these, a hundred of my planes are in queue for restoration, and it’s taking me forever! So, I purchased a 3M burnishing wheel, the exact...

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

Simple but Nice; Though a little over-priced

03-25-2013 04:33 PM by scarpenter002 | 6 comments »

Ordered these clamps from Woodcraft to go with my DeWalt TrackSaw for $44.99. Purchased these at a 10% discount in December. Watch for their “10% off all DeWalt” sales to order items like this, as they do not normally go on sale. It was shipped direct from the manufacturer. I have used these with both the TrackSaw and Router adapter. Features:These slide into the bottom of the track and quickly can be engaged or released with one hand. (very similar mechanism to the Quick-...

DeWalt Sander Review

DeWalt Sander Review

06-01-2013 06:59 PM by bear2 | 13 comments »

I have recently replaced my Porter Cable 333VS random orbital sander with a DeWalt D26453 random orbital sander. If I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS I would have. I have found three problems with the DeWalt.1. The dust bag is useless. It stops little dust and requires dragging a hose. The Porter Cable’s bag was superior and for most operations the supplied bag was fine. Seldom had to use a hose.2. The top of the DeWalt is domed and is hard to balance during sand paper ins...
