Big results from small purchase

Big results from small purchase

03-19-2012 12:21 AM by map | 16 comments »

For $4, this was a throw away purchase. I was buying some other items, so why not? Little did I realize that someone had invented a much better mousetrap! This thing works as advertized. It spreads glue evenly and easily and cleans up quickly. I haven’t tried the paddle yet, but I suspect that it works as well. This isn’t a big thing, but it it definitely will replace all but my largest glue spreaders.

Great idea - does not execute well

Great idea - does not execute well

03-29-2012 02:30 AM by GrandsonOfRue | 9 comments »

(note: In response to some of the comments…. I do realize that for some these will work quite well. I too have seen reviews of items I was very pleased with though the reviewer was not. For those of you who these work well for, I would love for you to demonstrate because I really hoped they would work. I appreciate your positive findings. I also want to be clear that I in no way am dissing Rockler. I continue to buy many things from them. My decision not to return them had nothing...

Jet Speed Clamps with Slip Clutch and 4" Throat

Jet Speed Clamps with Slip Clutch and 4" Throat

09-12-2011 08:34 PM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

These clamps were needed to reach over my pipe clamps during complicated glueups. The long 4” throat can accomplish this easily. The handle is large enough in diameter for good clamping pressure, and they easily closed all of my mortise and tenon joints with no gap. Cons: The clamp pads fall off easily. This is easily solved with a dab of silicone caulking. The slip clutch occasionally slips when you don’t want it to. I usually prefer clamps with a trigger for ju...

Great DVD's - Especially for those just starting out.

02-19-2009 01:16 AM by GaryK | 7 comments »

As one of the prizes for the Winter 2009 contest I received a pair of DVD sets fromPassion for Wood. I wanted to give them a quick review. For those just starting out, the DVD set on Jointer and Planer Secrets would be of great value.The jointer can be a tricky tool to master and Hendrik goes into great detail on the subject. You can save a lot of money buying rough lumber and this DVD will show you how to makeusable wood from it. All in all a great 4 1/2 hour, 2 DVD set. T...

A Bit Better

A Bit Better

08-22-2012 05:50 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 17 comments »

I had some brad point wood drill bits that were not drilling a decent hole which I was about to replace. The I remembered everyone’s advice about getting the best tools you can (within budget restraints) if you want and expect quality and long lasting performance. Well after looking and reading for some time about different bit manufacturers and user’s reports on their performance, I decided to purchase a 7 piece set of Colts for about $18.00.My God was I blown away by their pe...

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

02-09-2011 07:55 PM by steliart | 0 comments »

Jebson 1409V variable, reversible corded drill & screwdriver 3/8” (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill I was looking for a small corded quality drill that will be easy on my hands to use, controllable, robust and powerful. The shop guy recommended (introduced) this drill to me and even though its price was a bit high for the moment I hold it in my hands it felt right, so I went for it. There was nothing fancy coming with it in the box, just the drill and its chuc...

Byrd Tool H7768 Shelix Cutterhead, 8-Inch

10-27-2013 02:14 PM by b2rtch | 2 comments »

While I am writing reviews, I would like to add my name to the long list of Byrd Tool ’s satisfied customers. The date on my blog tells me that I installed this head on my 8 inches Powermatic jointer 445 days ago. Of course I do not use this jointer everyday, yet I never had to replace a cutter , even if one has a small chip .Not only this cutter head gives a wonderful finish but in addition it is very quiet, thing that I really enjoy.The 3 HP motor that I installed in this jointer h...

Photo lights for better posts

Photo lights for better posts

08-16-2010 01:02 PM by BritBoxmaker | 6 comments »

Not strictly speaking a woodwork tool these are LED lighting units to use in video or stills photography but as I’m continually taking pics for Project posts and blogs I thought it appropriate to post them here. They are from a site based in the UK Channel islands (post free in UK) but I’m not sure they will post worldwide. The URL should you want to check them out is here I bought a pair. One goes either side of my Canon Powerhot A460. They do stack on one another quite sol...

8" Digital Caliper with Metric or SAE Readout.

8" Digital Caliper with Metric or SAE Readout.

Perhaps it is a little premature to give a fair or accurate review on this tool. But I have seen some reviews and issues in past reviews, (on 6” models) and thought I would weigh inwith my first impressions with the 8” Pittsburgh caliper . We woodworkers rely on accuracy and reliability of our measuring tools. Its important that we have at our disposal several ways to measure. One helpful measuring device is the caliper. With it you can measure very accurately and in small i...
