Country Woodcraft - A handbook of traditional woodworking techniques and projects

I’ve had a copy of this book on my bookshelf for a very long time. I came a across a recommendation for this book when looking at carving information on the web and decided to re-read it. If you like Mad’s shave horse and your looking to work with rough lumber, this is the book for you. The books covers the following topics Tools Wood Sawbuck, shaving horse, clubs, mauls and mallets Bow Saws Tool Hancles Wedges Workbench Spring Pole Lathe He describes a...

Quangsheng Stainless Steel Spoke Shave Pair

Quangsheng Stainless Steel Spoke Shave Pair

10-02-2013 04:16 PM by wingate_52 | 2 comments »

Just retired and I build guitars and ukuleles amongst other stuff. I love tools and the better the tool, the better and happier I work. I have had a pair of Record spoke shaves for 40 years and they chatter. The blades are thin, the mouths are big. I have fettled them and they work…quite well. I have noticed these Quangsheng shaves for a few months. I have some of their planes and they are excellent, as are their plane blades and back irons. They have really improved my collect...

My first REAL cordless driver!

My first REAL cordless driver!

04-15-2008 04:35 AM by Tess | 6 comments »

Bought this 18V Lithium-Ion Drill-Driver from Home Hardware, refurbished, for $190 CDN. Sound steep? Well, I’ve got to tell you, it’s worth every penny! I used to do home renovations for fun and now I’ve gotten into professional contracting. I’d gone through a few cheapie cordless drills just with the around-the-house use and I was never happy with them. They were never robust enough (any screws over 2” and I wouldn’t have even tried the cordless). ...

Momentary Power Foot Switch

Momentary Power Foot Switch

01-09-2013 11:01 PM by b2rtch | 14 comments »

How many time when starting your router or your drill press or other power tool did you wish you had one more hand to grab firmly on the piece you were ready to machine? Often we present a piece of wood on the router just at right place to route it and then we need to let go of it to start the router and then the piece move. Or we hardly can hold one large piece , we do not feel very safe and then we need to let go of one hand to start the router or the drill press. After I refurbished...

Quality Control issues at Freud

Quality Control issues at Freud

04-27-2013 05:50 PM by colvinatch | 2 comments »

I recently purchased this dado set at Woodcraft and after making my first dado cut I noticed a ridge in the middle of the cut, as if the chippers were a fraction smaller that the outside blades, I took it back and exchanged it for another, which did exactly the same thing. When I returned to Woodcraft they put it on one of their table saws and got the same result, a noticeably higher ridge in the middle of the dado cut making the bottom uneven. They began pulling all these off their shelves...

May, 2010this review is from the May, 2010 issue of our eMag The Ultimate Band Saw Book by our very own Donna Menke As always I am as fascinated by the author’s story as I am the book itself. Reading about Donna having the balance of a mother’s push to try new things along with a father’s guidance at doing a job well, to using art, math, and engineering skills to create the plans for the band saw boxes, well, I was hooked from the start! I knew the book was going to be...

Great plate and easy to install

Great plate and easy to install

08-05-2010 04:20 PM by Vrtigo1 | 4 comments »

Let me start by saying that I bought this plate for my first router table, so I don’t have any frame of reference for comparing it to other products. With that being said, I was impressed with the quality of the plate and the cutout template. The price was right, at about $50 from Amazon. I was a little worried about getting a phenolic plate and the possibility of it warping when I hang my Hitachi M12V from it, but the plate feels very strong and stable. Only time will tell, but I...

Nice accessory

Nice accessory

12-18-2011 05:53 PM by Tedstor | 6 comments »

Not a whole lot to say about a tool like this. I was looking for a device to hold stuff down on my work bench top. Amazon was selling this one for $10 shipped. I was a bit weary of ordering it since the stock photos made the screw threads look a bit too fine for my taste. However, as the included pic shows, the threads are actually fairly coarse. Nice. Installation is very straight forward. I’m pretty sure the manufacturer intends a 3/8 bolt to be used to attach the clamp to the benc...
