A Must Have for Afficianatos

12-03-2009 10:15 PM by DannyBoy | 5 comments »

After reading the article (for the fourth time) “A Joiner’s Tool Chest” by Roy Underhill I had toolboxes and tool chests on my mind. So, when I was looking through the tool books at the library last night and happened across this book, I quickly snatched it up and glanced through it. Well, my wife had to remind me that the library hours were closing in and we needed to go because from the start I was engrossed! This is a great book. Especially, if you have any love of ...

Woodworker's Edge "Techniques" DVD's Cabriole Leg

Woodworker's Edge "Techniques" DVD's Cabriole Leg

01-12-2010 03:43 AM by Karson | 2 comments »

Last fall I went to visit Chuck Bender's shop and to meet Glen Huey Glen is the Senior Editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine. Glen was teaching a class on a Tea Table that belinged to his mother and had been in his home for as long as he could remember. The plans have been published in Popular Woodworking Magazine. This review has nothing to do with the table. It’s just a lead in to me meeting Glen. A great guy and of course Chuck is also. While I was there chatting with Glen...

Rockler Abrasive Cleaning Stick  (Rockler Item# 46987)

Rockler Abrasive Cleaning Stick (Rockler Item# 46987)

06-26-2011 11:25 AM by David Grimes | 18 comments »

I am certain most of you either have used these or know about them, but… for those of you who do not: I began using a combination belt / disk sander in my home shop a couple of months ago, so I ordered one of these cleaning sticks soon after since my belt was loading up a bit. When I used it on both the 4” belt and the 8” disk, they were almost instantly de-loaded and restore to like new condition. People, quite frankly I was actually a bit amazed at how well this piece...

My tenon making solution

My tenon making solution

10-09-2014 01:33 AM by CharlesA | 4 comments »

I’ve made tenons using several different methods. I had avoided buying a tenoning jig because it seemed like an unnecessary outlay of funds. I could make them by hand, with the bandsaw, or using a dado blade on the table saw. But for whatever reasons, I always have been a little frustrated by how they came out. I ended up doing way too much fine tuning with chisel/plane/sandpaper. So, I bit the bullet and purchased the Grizzly tenoning jig through Amazon, $88.59. I was annoyed...

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-...

Great so far!

I just purchased one of these units last week. I haven’t mounted it to the ceiling yet, but I have running at table height for now just to check it out. I had been planning to build my own filter like this, but for the price it was hard to pass up. Building a similar unit from scratch would probably cost close to the same plus the time to round up the components and assemble it. I was pleased with how quiet the unit was for the amount of air it was moving. I have only used it duri...

Miter gauge and blade purchase

Miter gauge and blade purchase

10-07-2010 12:05 PM by Ken90712 | 8 comments »

Sunday after a long workweek was over, with a little too much overtime for my taste I was reading Rockler sales paper. I had Monday off and Blondie was working, OH no, so off to Rockler I go. I received a coupon in the mail for 50 % of a 2nd item after purchasing a regular priced item of equal or less value. So I put in the reading glass’s ( New for me never had to before, LOL ) to read their fine print of all the things that were excluded from this coupon. I was happy to read Forres...

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...

Great Guide

Great Guide

06-12-2008 05:17 PM by John Gray | 10 comments »

I have the 50” model of this All-In-One Clamp Guide and love it. It’s really nice to use when breaking down a 4’x8’ piece of sheet goods without having to manhandle it up on the table saw. I cut them up right on the tailgate of my pickup before they come into the shop. You don’t have to have the Saw Plate just hold the saw firmly against the guide. When you “set it up” for your circular saw Sharpie the offset between the blade and the saw’s shoe and you’ll not ...

powerful and heavy duty

powerful and heavy duty

08-07-2009 01:42 AM by jake | 9 comments »

This tool is heavy duty in every aspect. It cuts hardwoods like butter. I like the basic nature of the tool, no lasers etc. They often obscure the sight line by getting in the way, and I would rather clearly see myself than rely on a laser. It base plate is aluminum, but is heavy enough it doesnt flex and I’m sure it helps keep the weight down. The adjustments are straight foreward and are easily operated. The motor sounds smooth in it’s wind up and use. The cord is nice and long,...
