Great  saws

Great saws

03-31-2013 05:34 PM by Rob186 | 2 comments »

I have a pair of 14” tennon saws 11ppi rip and 13 xcut with walnut handles and they are well built saws the quality is second to none I have a dovetail saw by wenzloff and I think the fit and finish is a little better the brass backs are very heavy with the saw blades being a mirror Finnish. Enough about how they look how do they perform. I have had them for 4 days and have made about 40 -50 cuts and the saws track very good I am still new to sawing by hand and I can make a cut perfe...

Oneway Talon Chuck

Oneway Talon Chuck

11-10-2013 09:37 PM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

I bought a used Jet 1236 lathe about a year ago, my first lathe and my first time turning since high school. I watched all the youtube videos I could find and I saw quickly that the way I did it in high school with faceplates is a drag compared to using a scroll chuck, so I saved some money and last month I took the plunge. I chose Oneway over Nova and the others for one simple reason: the shape of the jaws. On the Nova, the quarter round shape didn’t account for different diameter s...

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

11-10-2011 04:51 PM by WoodworkGuy | 5 comments »

I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included). It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient...

DVD - The Last Word On Sharpening  -  Review

DVD - The Last Word On Sharpening - Review

12-28-2011 01:01 PM by Nazair | 2 comments »

In his opening comments Christopher Schwarz states how confusing the subject of sharpening is to new woodworkers, and that so many different methods, products and options on the market make it worse. This was exactly how I felt. The ninety minutes he spends talking while hands on in this DVD have been a great addition to my other research. I’ve spent many an hour online and browsing different books on this subject. He doesn’t single out any one method, but comments on the good...

Clean Your Bits & Blades

Clean Your Bits & Blades

05-28-2012 03:11 PM by plantek | 6 comments »

I’ve always heard about the virtues of cleaning you saw blade when you think it’s time to get it resharpened.Well I finally did it and ended up with a blade as good as it was when new.I wanted a environmentally friendly cleaner to do and decided to try the degreaser I use to remove the shipping grease that comes on new tools…This stuff worked fantastic. I used a lid from a Homedepot 5gal bucket and let the blade soak for about 2 – 5 mins. I then only had to gently br...

Great saw for the money, even a better package

Great saw for the money, even a better package

12-16-2012 08:32 PM by Oldtool | 11 comments »

I’ve been looking at cordless circular saws for some time now, because I want one to take with me to lumberyards to break down long boards so they fit into my small station wagon.Walking into Lowes three weeks ago looking for an unrelated item, I stumbled upon a Porter Cable combo-package of 4 tools, two Ni-cd batteries and a charger for a price I couldn’t afford to pass up – $129.00. After looking at it for about 10 seconds before I made up my mind to buy it, I was at the r...

Not impressed

Not impressed

02-09-2014 02:36 AM by Vertigo | 20 comments »

I purchased this bit because it had three cutters on each blade. It also promised to be a decent bit because of being adjustable. Well not quite what I thought. After 10 feet of tongue cutting one of the carbide tips snapped in half. My 5 year old was in the garage so fortunately it didn’t get him. Usually if carbide fails it detaches completely. This tooth literally cracked in half. In short go with another brand. It will be getting returned

Yet another time wasted disappointment.

Yet another time wasted disappointment.

Here we go again. This 6 inch capacity SO CALLED self-centering jig from TASK-USA or Telco tools is another example of lousy workmanship.Another so called made in the USA centering jig that’s off by unacceptable tolerances.If I wanted this kind of inaccuracy, I would use the drill press witout my glasses.They claim their jig is within 10000 –5000 tolerance, I guess they need to get back to school or learn to use a calculator. 10000 is = 0.0001 and 5000 = 0.0002.My measurement shows 1/100 =0...

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-...

I’ve been honored recently to be included in a new online column for American Craft Magazine:http://americancraftmag.org/search.php?tag=134 They are accepting column submissions from any writer/crafter on the subject of ‘Why I Make,’ so anyone interested can write up a short piece and submit it for consideration.
