A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

A great alternative to the Jorgensen Pony, worth all $8 I spent for each fixture

12-15-2013 03:18 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

The HF 3/4” Pipe Clamp with Base fixture is probably the only of my many HF acquisitions that has never given me a problem. After discovering the inadequacies of F-style clamps in the greater than 12” range (too much flex), I took the road traveled by many a woodworker before me and began looking to pipe clamps. I began pricing out Jorgensen Pony pipe clamp fixtures and found them to be a bit more expensive than I had anticipated, so I took a chance and bought 1 fixture from HF ...

Crap Powered Crap Saw

Crap Powered Crap Saw

02-06-2011 09:39 PM by travisowenfurniture | 25 comments »

I got this for $15, and i over paid. It doesn’t hold onto the blades because they keep falling out no matter how much I tighten the set screws. It doesn’t cut straight. Now, it doesn’t even work. I think I didn’t have it for 6 months when it stopped working. Well, sometimes it works when I slam it against a concrete surface, hard. So if you have one project you need a jigsaw for, but you don’t need super accurate cuts, this would be fine. It’s $20 ...

This review for the Harbor Freight adjustable roller stand. Item #46086. The one with the red roller. I got this last week to use as outfeed support for my planer and jointer. I needed something cheap and easy to support the long beech boards I was planing. This tool has mostly been an exercise in frustration. The bad news: Adjusting it is very difficult and highly annoying. It’s adjusted by moving the rod that holds the roller up and down within the base. This is a common...

Business review for acmetools.com! Amazing, customer service is outstanding!

12-19-2013 06:11 PM by Micah Muzny | 11 comments »

I am writing this review to tell my experiences with acmetools.com. I had many inquiries about tools I was purchasing that were going to be freight items. They answered every question I had about the tools, every question about the freight and more.They were very polite, helpful, and answered questions completely. Oh and the freight shipping was free and since out of state no tax!! I was also ordering a anvil, the manufacturer was back ordering the one I had purchased. I was uneasy about it t...

Absolutely the Most Useful, Inexpensive Marking Tool...

Absolutely the Most Useful, Inexpensive Marking Tool...

02-06-2014 04:37 PM by DeLayne Peck | 14 comments »

What is it? Ordinary old sticks of school chalk. I use it constantly all over my shop and on project-after-project. Chalk cuts down the chaos, bungling, confusion, memory lapses, searching, waste and mistakes that haunt every shop. My shop for sure. Here are some of my routine uses: Noting the arrival dates of lumber for drying and acclimation. Planning and marking the intended use of and dimensions of new lumber. Laying out initial cuts and dimensions on sheet goods. Noting dimensi...

Can't get better for the price

Can't get better for the price

After watching Rob Cosman’s videos on the new V3 planes and his videos on sharpening blades I decided to go get a Wood River #5 Jack Plane. As Rob says, the plane comes covered in thick oil to prevent rust but you can just take it off with some mineral spirits. All the adjustments were easy to make and everything moved smoothly. The sole was dead flat against my straight edge and you can’t beat the tolerances in the chip breaker and blade. All it takes is 10-20 minutes of setup an...

Good Nailer so far!  More good things to come!

Good Nailer so far! More good things to come!

I had a craftsman nailer/stapler combo that did a decent job but would smash the wood sometimes with the square headed 16GA nails. I have some new woodwork that wasn’t going to work well with those nails so I was looking for a new one. I found this one and the “DA” nails (rounded head rather than square head) and it looked like it would do the trick. I picked it up at the local Lowe’s for $189.99. I didn’t do much investigation because all the brands looked t...

Some Knife!

Some Knife!

08-10-2012 03:01 AM by mpounders | 3 comments »

I really didn’t need another knife, but I have wondered how I might like a scimitar shape blade and I have admired the knives that Brandant Robinson makes. I was on his website and happened to see he had one of his catapiller style knives available, so I decided to order it while my wife was agreeable! This was on Saturday, a little before noon. I had recieved an email from Brandant confirming my order and saying it had been shipped in less than 2 hours! On a Saturday no less! He had h...

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

12-11-2014 07:26 AM by chrisworker | 11 comments »

For the longest time I would use my PSI DC1B-XL for my dust collection needs, but since I upgraded my jointer from a 6” to an 8” and my planer from my lunchbox to a new 3hp spiral cutter I have been buying my lumber in the rough from a local dealer. When I started to get my lumber this way I quickly realized I needed a bigger dust collector. I have read numerous reviews from this webpage and others about the HF 2hp dust collector so I grabbed my coupon and off I went to get my b...

I LOVE it! This Mirka Deros 5 in. Random Orbit Sander wonderful! It works SO Effortlessly and Quietly it’s amazing! I also got the Hose... It would NOT connect to my Ridgid shop vac hose… a visit to Home Depot for a converter kit solved that problem! I also got some Abranet sanding disks and the Pad Savers. I had some very ROUGH slabs of Black Walnut to use as a Test piece. I had some 5 hole H&L sand paper disks. I was started with 60 grit 5 hole sandpap...
