FN Bandana by Blu Dragon Enterprises

Hey all, just want to show off my new “FN Banadana”!(Patent Pending) I know what you’re thinking and the “FN” doesn’t stand for what you think it does! It’s a Fitted Nose Banadana. Much like your dust masks in the shop, this bandana has a metal strip sewn in the center that you can form around your nose to keep from breathing the dust in. Designed by a motorcycle rider to keep from fogging up her glasses, the FN Bandana has many other uses as well:...

At last, something you guys in the US can’t get! Over the NZLJ milling weekend, grimt showed me a plane he purchased some time ago that was refurbished by Philip Marcou. I was most impressed with the plane but it seems that Philip stopped selling them. As you do (or don’t) know, Philip Marcou is one of the top high end plane makers in the world (read the reviews on his site). His planes are beautiful, and probably an experience to use, and just from watching the pictures you wa...

Great so far!

I just purchased one of these units last week. I haven’t mounted it to the ceiling yet, but I have running at table height for now just to check it out. I had been planning to build my own filter like this, but for the price it was hard to pass up. Building a similar unit from scratch would probably cost close to the same plus the time to round up the components and assemble it. I was pleased with how quiet the unit was for the amount of air it was moving. I have only used it duri...

Ridgid 12-volt Drill/Driver

Ridgid 12-volt Drill/Driver

11-24-2008 08:31 PM by ferstler | 1 comment »

I already had a large and heavy 18-volt Ryobi drill/driver when I purchased this unit, and I wanted something lighter. I still have the Ryobi, which is a fine tool, but if the job is not too demanding I will pick up and use this smaller Ridgid model. Consequently I use this thing a lot around my shop and I must say that it has surprising power and handles very well. I rarely use the driver feature, mainly because I have three impact drivers on hand for that sort of thing (I recently review...

What can you expect from a 120$ table saw?

What can you expect from a 120$ table saw?

04-02-2012 09:05 PM by lumberjoe | 28 comments »

Some call it cheap crap, I say “challenge accepted” After many years of refinishing old tag sale furniture, I decided I’d like to do woodworking. I got some books, then got some tools. I wasn’t sold on the idea that I would be good at it or even like it, so I wanted my initial investment to be fairly small. Around Christmas time, Home Depot had this bad larry on sale for a little over 100$. I could have picked up something used and much nicer for short dough, but s...

The tool I could not do without

The tool I could not do without

05-03-2014 06:23 PM by b2rtch | 30 comments »

My wife bought me this tool for my birthday probably six years ago. I have used it for demolition and construction to cut copper pipes and wood, to sand where no other sander whould have done the job and for many other things. This tool took me out of a bind countless time. This is a wonderful little detail sander. This morning I used it again to trim pieces of wood where not other tool could have done it. If you do not already have one of this, go buy one. Sometimes they are on sale ...

I purchased the Veritas Mark II honing guide from my local Woodcraft store (not sure if they all do it this way, but it was kept behind a door at mine, wasn’t with the other honing guides (for good reason). I took it home, and got it out of it’s packaging, and inspected. The thing that I noticed first was the heft. It is well cast, and the brass knobs are beautifully machined. First impression: high quality tool. The instruction manual is a lengthy read, but super well writ...

Installation issues ( it should "no" star for the moment)

Installation issues ( it should "no" star for the moment)

I went to buy this fence last Thursday to mount it on my HF band saw.I mounted it Saturday and yesterday Sunday.I am mechanic by trade and it is my job to make stuff work, no matter what.Well, this fence was a challenge. I was expecting an easy and straight forward installation, the installation was anything but——The table had two threaded holes in the front which lined up with fixation holes in the fence but contrary to what it is supposed to be , when using these holes the fenc...

Great blade

Great blade

05-20-2010 08:22 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 13 comments »

It came time in my shop when I realized my old porter cable blade was cutting it (literally at times!) any longer.I was going to buy a frued but I could not resist the urge to try out this CMT.The only complaint I have with this blade is the packaging. The blade is screwed into the case and even when the screw is out you still have to all about break the case to get the blade out. Its NOT easy.Upon putting in the saw I fired it up right away. Call me cliche but this blade SOUNDS great! It wh...

Terrible leveling, poor abrasion resistance

Terrible leveling, poor abrasion resistance

11-09-2014 02:07 AM by Scott C. | 4 comments »

I’ve waited to review this stuff as a I wanted to try it out for a while before making my mind up about it. I bought a couple of gallons to finish some kitchen drawers and had a good amount leftover which I used on a couple of furniture projects and a jewelry box. My main gripes are it’s leveling properties and abrasion resistance suck, both with spraying and foam brush. I can’t get a smooth finish with runs, drips and brush marks. It scratches really easily, after a month o...
