This is a very usesfull tool for doing just what it says and doing it prety well.It works on any type thread, metric, ASA or even Whitworth.Great for getting rid of rust and grunge and even burrs.From the catalogue.. Universal Thread Restorer “Most thread restorers require separate inserts to match the specific threads of a damaged bolt. This one doesn’t. The patented yet simple design allows the hardened steel cutters to adjust to any size, pitch or direction of thread — Im...

Good router, okay table

Good router, okay table

01-24-2011 06:18 PM by RandyMorter | 9 comments »

I got the Bosch 1617EVSPK 2.25 HP Router Kit with the fixed and plunge bases as an upgrade to my Ryobi router. I was looking for more power and also for a router I could mount in a table (I never could get the Ryobi in a table for some reason, and I even tried a Ryobi table).I got the router from Lowe’s on 11/15/2010 for $189.00 in Phoenix, AZ. Home Depot had the same unit for $209.Those are only the two routers I’ve ever used and I like the Bosch much better. I chose it over othe...

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

05-05-2016 05:28 PM by Matt | 15 comments »

I purchased this saw after finally committing to building out my long dreamed about woodshop. I had a bunch of contractor/jobsite grade tools and didn’t really have any experience with professional grade WW tools. Background: (I’m a hobbyist) Originally I had purchased a Ridgid R4510 (R45101) and it failed while trying to rip 12/4 poplar. Sure…... it was a lot for it to cut, but what’s the point of a blade height of 3 1/4” when it can’t cut that much...

Gunning for Shop Safety and Comfort

Gunning for Shop Safety and Comfort

09-07-2013 06:01 AM by DeLayne Peck | 14 comments »

When you have a tricky cut on the table saw, both hands on a router or lathe tool – you can count on it – that’s when a fly will start biting. And, that’s when I stop and reach for the Bug-A-Salt. Biting insects are a serious distraction and a matter of shop safety and comfort. What’s a Bug-A-Salt? It is a lot of fun, but not a toy. It’s a high quality plastic, pump-action mini shotgun. A top fill container holds a couple table spoons of table salt....

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 ...

Router Table

Router Table

01-21-2011 03:06 AM by Bill St.Pierre | 16 comments »

I purchased a Freud router table and router 2 years ago and liked it so much I bought another one last year so I had 2 when making rails and stiles.I have been having trouble with the stiles because it was as if the lumber was not straight when I would run it so the profile was uneven across the piece. I finally realized that the table top had bowed from the weight of the router so the center of the table was off about an 1/8”. I brought it to the attention of my local Woodcraft store ...

Not well made

Not well made

I’m a DIY guy who’s getting into my 60’s and have learned that it pays to buy good tools. In other words, you get what you pay for. That’s why I felt good when I bought this Milwaukee hammer drill. Milwaukee makes good stuff, right? Not. I hadn’t used the drill more than a dozen times when the variable speed feature quit. Now, you don’t want to be using a high torque 1/2” drill without variable speed – unless you don’t care if your arm ...

I just bought this caliper. I had an old one that was not digital, it just had stamped lines and measurements. I’ve used it for years, and considered it priceless. But, here lately, I’ve been wanting to get a little more accurate. So, I bought this Wixey brand 6” Digital readout caliper with fractions. WOW! I was really surprised at the difference. What I thought was good in the past is now not acceptable. This caliper has helped me be a better woodworker in so many ...

Deep Hollow Turning

This is my first review so I hope you enjoy. Been looking at this system for a few months and put it on my wish list. Anyway next day started setting it up. Instructions were simple, only you need to purchase a post separate that fits your banjo. Off to WC bought a 5/8’’ post [20 bucks] and back to the shop. This system comes with a tool rest, a super heavy duty turning tool, with a 21’’ blade and 17’’ handle and a 1/4’’ half ro...
