Well worth the extra upfront cost!!

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...

Ridgid 12-volt Drill/Driver

Ridgid 12-volt Drill/Driver

11-24-2008 08:31 PM by ferstler | 1 comment »

I already had a large and heavy 18-volt Ryobi drill/driver when I purchased this unit, and I wanted something lighter. I still have the Ryobi, which is a fine tool, but if the job is not too demanding I will pick up and use this smaller Ridgid model. Consequently I use this thing a lot around my shop and I must say that it has surprising power and handles very well. I rarely use the driver feature, mainly because I have three impact drivers on hand for that sort of thing (I recently review...

A Pleasant Surprise

A Pleasant Surprise

This review for the coarse grade of sanding sponges. They are sold in packs of ten at Harbor Freight. I was over there and needed to sand some curved pieces so I picked some up. I also got some Norton 60 grit sponges elsewhere so I was able to do a direct comparison. I’ve also used 3M’s sponges in the past. Harbor Freight doesn’t specify the grit but I’d say it’s between 60 and 80 grit. I wasn’t expecting much from these sponges. I’ve used ...

Fun and affordable

Fun and affordable

05-07-2014 05:58 AM by siavosh | 4 comments »

I’ve recently acquired a full blown case of sharpening OCD, and having been inclined towards Japanese tools, I’ve started pining for natural water stones. I’m strictly a newbie, but apparently there are some advantages to using high quality “naturals” especially at the higher grits. The issue is that to get a descent one you need to fork over hundreds if not thousands of dollars because they are limited in supply. All this while synthetics are more consistent, ch...

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...

Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide

Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide

07-06-2015 05:56 PM by Matthew Morris | 3 comments »

View on YouTube A quick review of the Veritas Mark II Narrow-Blade Honing Guide. For years I’ve used the regular Mark II Honing Guide and recently purchased the Narrow Blade Guide. I found the new clamping guide is perfect for using with chisels.

Cheap and easy rust remover

Cheap and easy rust remover

08-17-2013 04:30 AM by Rick M | 20 comments »

Cost: $1 for 24 oz. at The Dollar Store. Tried this on a few rusty nails that I kept for who knows what reason and on a shiny new zinc covered screw. Put them in a jar with just enough Works to cover and it started bubbling right away. I left the jar outside and went to dinner. About 5 hours later I remembered to check on them and they were rust and zinc free. I rinsed everything in water and dried with a paper towel. This stuff does create some nasty fumes and it’ll wash the pupils ...

The JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Package (The Full Deal) Review

The JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Package (The Full Deal) Review

04-19-2016 03:56 AM by Jay39 | 5 comments »

Before I begin, I already had a Bosch 3 HP 1617 Router and a small benchtop Bosch router cabinet. Changing bits were a chore (usually ending up with cuts on hand when changing), and I did not enjoy the routing experience. In fact, I rarely did it because of the difficulty. Fortunately, I knew that as a wood worker, routing is an important technique that can enhance many projects. Well, this just in! JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Complete Router Table System! System came in 3 mid-size boxes, ...

Elbo articulated hollower

Elbo articulated hollower

07-27-2011 12:46 AM by michelletwo | 3 comments »

I just set up this new tool and hollowed this piece of firewood( 8×5w ) to 6 inches. Very easy to use. (I have hollowed by hand, so I do know how) Anyone who has a modest amount of turning experience will find it relatively easy to do. I got this from Packard Woodworks and I believe it is the least expensive on the market at this time. The bad? One of the grub screws was already stripped before I even put it together. One of the long bolts that clamp the holder on the quill, was sh...
