Clean flat bottom cuts

Clean flat bottom cuts

07-27-2013 11:13 PM by twc | 8 comments »

I am always looking for new more efficient ways to complete my projects. Lately I have been doing a lot of shaker style doors with stub-tenon and groove joinery. That’s where this blade comes in. It makes super clean cuts with perfectly flat bottoms. On their website it is shown cutting tenon shoulders in a single pass. I have not done anything bigger then a stub tenon but I think it would excel at larger tenons as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes to c...

A Paean to an American Classic

A Paean to an American Classic

04-16-2013 05:17 AM by vipond33 | 21 comments »

Good everyday tools make everything better. . I have an abundance of Jorgensen 3700 clamps on hand, today I bought some more. I’ve been happily using these same American clamps for decades and I’ve really no idea whether the people involved are being paid well or not, but to this day the quality remains outstanding.. . It does seem there are companies that make a cheaper, poorer copy of this design but I would say to them and you – why bother? Many of my clamps h...

A worth while track saw consideration

A worth while track saw consideration

11-30-2015 06:32 AM by Holbs | 10 comments »

There are track saws, and there are track saws. For a $200 estimated price tag, this Grizzly T10687 does it’s job wonderfully. This is similar to Sheppach and other European clones of this economical track saw type, but is Grizzly :) It has a riving knife, it plunges, 9 amp motor, dust port, has a 100% functional depth knob, no wobble in the track. All knobs are plastic, but that hard plastic, not the flimsy type. I can easily plunge it with one hand reaching across 4’ plywoo...

Very Handy Drill Guide

Very Handy Drill Guide

12-17-2013 04:41 PM by brtech | 9 comments »

I’ve been meaning to write up this tool for a while. I’ve had it for a couple months and have used it maybe 7 times. It’s great. Solid hunk of real steel, drilled accurately. Has a V notch in the bottom to sit nicely on a dowel or other curved surface (or corners), and enough flat surface that it works well on flat stock. It’s really flat, sits solidly on flat stock. The center points of the holes are indicated with lines on both sides, so you can line up the hol...

It's made of plastic !

It's made of plastic !

06-03-2011 03:49 PM by richgreer | 18 comments »

I use my digital calipers a lot and I tend to be hard on them. I’ve dropped them and poured stuff on them and it seems like I am buying new ones often. I saw this particular caliper on sale for half price – only $14.99. I didn’t need one at the time, but I know that I will eventually need another one so “why not?”. I never imagined that it would be made of plastic. It has a very cheap, flimsy feel to it and it does not have the normal little turn whe...

What a Dream... I love this Plane!

What a Dream... I love this Plane!

02-29-2008 07:28 PM by Chris | 7 comments »

This plane is my first foray into the world of Lie-Nielsen. WOW! I am impressed; we get so very used to mediocre products that when we get our hands on products with this level of craftsmanship it simply blows you away. Don’t get me wrong, I love my old planes. However, I hated using the block planes I had picked up here and there. They were just too difficult to use accurately. This plane was ready to go straight out of the box. The sole is, as far as I can tell, perfectly flat and the ...

Laser wood engraving on the cheap works surprisingly well.

Laser wood engraving on the cheap works surprisingly well.

07-02-2016 01:17 AM by MadMark | 43 comments »

I make a lot of boxes & cabinets and have long wanted to put pictures and words on items. The latest thing in the tool catalogs are ‘affordable’ laser engravers / cutters that start at several thousand and go up rapidly from there. Obviously that’s out of reach for a dabbler. Searching the internet shows lots of units for between $100 and $200 – all from no-name Chinese cos. Gearbest listed several models from 200mw to 5w. I settled on the 1600mw unit as the bes...
