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...

WoodRiver #92 Medium Shoulder Plane

WoodRiver #92 Medium Shoulder Plane

12-27-2013 03:56 PM by woodmaker | 7 comments »

Have I mentioned I have the best wife in the world! Found this under the Xmas treel. What a beauty, feels good in the hand, nice heft to it. Will have to research how to prep it for use and the sharpening angle etc.. More review will be added later, but see no reason not to do 5 stars. I pulled it apart and put it ack together and no pieces were broken/cracked etc. Hmm, I’ll have to cut some dado’s and tennons so I can use it. LOL! Like i need an excuse.

Dremel parts service

Dremel parts service

03-11-2013 02:41 PM by Sodabowski | 10 comments »

Hi guys. So this is what just happened to me today. Upon firing my Dremel, without any advice, it blew out dust like crazy in a crunching noise, with the usual smell of opal being ground. Suffice to say I immediately shut it off. Best guess: a small chunk from the last time I used it probably got sucked into the tool and was released when I fired it today, causing severe damage. Once unplugged, the first thing I noticed when extracting the carbons was that they were pretty damaged. ...

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.

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

Deluxe Gopher Pick-up Tool

03-24-2014 05:16 PM by MrRon | 6 comments »

This is not a woodworker tool, but it is a tool none-the-less. Made of plastic, aluminum and spring steel; operated by hand, it is used to pick up items that are out of reach with suction cup like grippers. Originally intended for older people who have difficulty picking up items that are out of reach, I have found more uses for this tool than it was intended for. Although I’m not an old person (only 79), I do have difficulty picking up small items that fall to the floor in my shop. Th...

American Wood & Metal Planes: From the Collection of the D'Elia Antique Tool Museum

American Wood & Metal Planes: From the Collection of the D'Elia Antique Tool Museum

08-08-2013 11:43 PM by Don W | 7 comments »

A post card came with the “Patented Transitional and Metallic Planes in America” Vol II for this book. It was about $30 -$35 shipped. I decided to buy it. If you like hand planes, buy, use and collect hand planes, this book is a must have. If you like thumbing through 340 pages of high quality pictures of hand plane, with maker, inventor and some other relevant information, this book is a must have. It doesn’t have the detailed information like Roger Smith’s two...

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

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...

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...
