Craftsman Drill guide

Craftsman Drill guide

01-22-2016 07:18 PM by hairy | 8 comments »

I used to buy a lot of Craftsman, then for a while I wouldn’t buy anything Craftsman. I probably would not have bought this, except that they were the only local retailer that had 1 in stock. I saw several online, but due to my poor planning I didn’t have time to wait for shipping. I needed it to drill holes into wall studs for floating shelves. I used 3/8” x 8” lag bolts to support the shelves. Once before I tried that without a drill guide. It did not end well. ...

New worksharp for old chisels

New worksharp for old chisels

01-04-2009 02:48 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 18 comments »

In reviving my shop after many years I got a workshart 3000. I used to sharpen my chisels by hand on sandpaper and stones and got marginal results because you really have to work at it to get them the way you want. This worksharp really makes it easy. I mean really easy. Old dull chipped chisels took maybe 15 minutes each and I’ll be able to touch them up in a few seconds anytime I want to now.The unit is not cheap but not as expensive as some units. I got mine from Sears for $189 but y...

"Benny" and Her JET

"Benny" and Her JET

01-05-2010 07:55 AM by mmh | 3 comments »

Well, I may need to change my name to “Benny” for this title, but this is my latest addition to the wood workshop as I dearly needed an upgrade from the Craftsman 6” x 36” belt sander which I tend to replace every 18 months (via 2 yr. service contract). The difference between the Craftsman 6” x 36” and the JET 6” x 48” models are like Night vs. Day. Same concept, but the function and quality are on opposite sides of the spectrum. For the pr...

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

How to make money selling your work as a Artisan

09-28-2012 07:04 PM by Tom Godfrey | 13 comments »

Want to review a book that I just purchased a few days ago. It’s called “Artisans & Money”, written by Joe Rollins. Some of you may remember me posting a review of his lathe cutting tools and as of today I have had 1146 views with 7 comments. Not sure if any of you ordered any of these tools but if you are starting out in wood turning or even if you have been turning for years I still feel this is one of the best investments you can make. Why? Great product at a lower price than other see...

Great saw for a big box store

Great saw for a big box store

12-11-2008 09:39 PM by DannyBoy | 9 comments »

I know, we all give the big box stores crap for having shoddy this, that, and the other. But let’s face it, we nearly all shop there. Lowes has always been a good place and I continue to love buying from there. I was lucky enough to get offered a bit of a shopping spree from my father for my birthday (a bit belated) and Lowes was just down the street. For the past 6 months I had been cursing myself for spending $30 on a crappy Black your Decker saw that was mostly plastic. I boug...

Excellent grinder accessory

Excellent grinder accessory

11-07-2012 09:14 PM by Kreegan | 5 comments »

I got a cheapo 6” bench grinder from Harbor Freight at the same time that I bought my lathe to sharpen my turning tools. It ran just fine with the 2 wheels it came with, but vibrated all over the table with the Norton aluminum oxide wheel that I ordered from Lee Valley. I spent a lot of time messing with the adapter bushings that it came with, trying to get the wheel to run true, but with no luck. Enter the Oneway Balancing System, also purchased from Lee Valley. At first I didn̵...

VXB 4" Lazy Susan Bearing huge discount

Hey guys, This is mainly for you guys out there in the USA, but you never know. As you may know, US ball-bearing supplier VXB has been in the market for a very long time and sells all kinds of bearings to the whole world. The great thing about them is that despite being a huge company they also sell to individuals. And now comes the woodworkers’ part: for a limited time, they’re offering this 4” LS bearing for $0.99. Yup. Their shipping options for ONE bearing ar...

The Little Victor Plane from Lee Valley

The Little Victor Plane from Lee Valley

02-29-2008 03:15 PM by rikkor | 7 comments »

I bought this little plane mostly on a whim. I am simply amazed by how useful it has turned out to be. It is easy to use either one or two handed. It has Lee Valley quality throughout. The iron was very sharp when I got it. It has a cast iron body that just feels right. I believe the current price is about $35.00.
