I’ve been picking a few of these up from Rural King for the past few months, because they were originally 40 bux, and they’ll be on sale until the 23rd of this month, Jan, 2016, for 20bux. A “few” amounts to 24, which is a bunch o greenbacks, but, like I said, I’ve been getting them a little at a time. Anyhoo, I know these pictures will not do justice of how fricking bright these units are. While in the store, Rural King, they had them on an endcap with 2 of t...

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

2Sand.com Where Price Meets Value!

01-30-2011 01:53 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

I am always on the lookout for quality products at a low price. Since I started turning I have been looking for power sanding accessories that are a better value than what is available through Woodcraft. After quite a bit of searching and comparing I finally decided to give 2Sand.com a shot. After my 1st test drive of their Blue Micron Bowl Sanding Discs I am really impressed! Price When comparing price to Woodcraft there is not comparison. A 5 disc pack Hook & Loop discs from Woodc...

Incra Cleansweep Magnalock rings for Incra/JessEm Mast-R-Lift II

Incra Cleansweep Magnalock rings for Incra/JessEm Mast-R-Lift II

04-24-2015 12:51 AM by philba | 2 comments »

I’ve had my Mast-T-Lift II for a while now in a shop built router table. It’s set up for under table dust collection and does pretty well but I am always looking for was to improve dust collection, especially for routing. Recently, I purchased the Cleansweep magnalock rings in the hope they would help. Well, they do. I did some simple tests with the stock magna lock rings and then with the clean sweep ones. I routed a 3/8” x 1/2” rabbet in several pieces of pine....

2HP Dusty - Great Value

2HP Dusty - Great Value

11-13-2010 02:12 AM by DoctorDan | 5 comments »

I’ve upgraded from the Carbatec 1HP FM 320 to the Carbatec 2HP CT-2042 1PH. This machine offers 1500cfm and is fitted with an optional 3 micron pleated cartridge. It has a 6” inlet reduced to two 4” inlets. It’s noise level is acceptable. I have tested it out jointing a few boards not only did it collect the chips very well you could also see the dust from 2” away from the jointer blades getting sucked back in. I believe it offers great value for money.

Awesome Vibration Dampening

Awesome Vibration Dampening

02-12-2015 07:57 PM by CypressAndPine | 6 comments »

I’ll start by saying that I don’t notice much difference in the sanding ability of the 3 different orbital sanders I’ve owned. First was a cheap pawn shop Porter Cable, second was a cheap new Dewalt, and now this very expensive Bosch. All of them sand wood very close to equal. However there are two huge differences I will state: 1. VIBRATION: I’m an offshore electrician and I have every nerve, tissue, bone issue you could think of in my hands and lower arms. My o...

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

I have owned a Bostitch pin nailer for three years now and it has been a miserable experience. But today it finally made me happy. How? Well I too a 15 pound sledge hammer to it and smashed it to smithereens. I do hereby swear to never ever purchase another Bostitch tool. A big name with poor designs, I am very disappointed in them.

Acurate, Fast and Easy.

I have needed a way to set up my router fence and router bits in relationship to the fence. It seemed like the reversible glue joint bit, or lock miter bit were such great promise, only to have so much time wasted trying to hit the seemingly impossible perfect alignment of the joint parts. I had more success with the reversible glue joint bits, but still I would end up sanding to get it “right” and not really happy with the end result. Then I read a “Fine WoodworkingR...

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

Very Nice Dovetail Saw

01-23-2008 05:54 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 16 comments »

I love the feel of this saw. The grip is comfortable in my large hand. The saw has a nice “heavy” feel to it. The saw cuts straight and true. It has a rip tooth configuration, with a narrow set. The narrow set helps the saw cut straight, once your cut is started. Once I figured out how to start my cuts, with a light touch push stroke, cutting became very easy. Although, I still have some work to do on my dovetail joints :). www.lie-nielsen.com

Very handy workbench accessory

Very handy workbench accessory

I purchased the Veritas Planing Stop from Lee Valley (http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=69837&cat=1,41637) about a month ago. I’d had a planing stop I made myself, but I managed to crack it, so I decided to give this one a try. The stop is about 10 in wide and a little over 1 in deep. It has 2 metal posts that fit into standard 3/4 in dog holes on your workbench. The posts slide along the bottom of the stop in a T track. I have dog holes in 2 patterns on my bench: para...
