Why did I wait so long??

Easily accessible power is priceless in the shop. While installing new outlets would have been the preferable remedy, it wasn’t particularly practical in my case. This cord reel has solved a lot of problems for me. At 30 ft, its long enough to reach any point in my workshop/garage, and can even reach onto my driveway if necessary. And being mounted on the ceiling makes it easy to manage the cord, keeping it off the floor and away from my feet. The reel includes all the needed hardware t...

Absolutely the Most Useful, Inexpensive Marking Tool...

What is it? Ordinary old sticks of school chalk. I use it constantly all over my shop and on project-after-project. Chalk cuts down the chaos, bungling, confusion, memory lapses, searching, waste and mistakes that haunt every shop. My shop for sure. Here are some of my routine uses: Noting the arrival dates of lumber for drying and acclimation. Planning and marking the intended use of and dimensions of new lumber. Laying out initial cuts and dimensions on sheet goods. Noting dimensi...

Nice and functional, but could be improved

I purchased the 36” Starrett 380 series straightedge to set up my 6” jointer. I purchased the 36” thinking I would need the extra length, but hindsight being 20/20 I think you could get away with a 24” straightedge for a 6” jointer, and the 24” is about half the price. This isn’t related to the review, this is just a statement that I hope someone else in the same boat sees so that they can be armed with that information before deciding which product...

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

Veritas® Jointer/Edger for card scraper

03-01-2013 12:46 AM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is the file holder from Veritas for card scrapers. Works great for putting a new edge on card scrapers after the burr is worn out. Takes only a couple of seconds to file the edge and get it ready to burnish or you can leave it as is after filing for heavy (as heavy as you can get with a card scraper anyway) material removal. I would recommend this for anyone wanting a good jig for their card scrapers.

Got it as a freebie so I have a hard time complaining, but mine was off by 5/16”. With all the math involved in creating an average piece of furniture….it’s a pain to have to correct for the tape as well. Otherwise decent quality (for inexpensive tapes anyway). Mines relegated to missions to my local wood monger, where precision is not needed. I have since checked multiples at the store, and have yet to find one thats dead on. Oh well it was FREE.

I have been dithering back & forth about writing this review. I ordered video #1 . It had a very pretty table with a copper top, and I wanted to learn how to do the copper. The videos claim to be step by step instruction. Well all episodes are 18 minutes long. How the heck can one give a step by step instruction on building much of anything in 18 mins? And when I watched the video on the copper table, well guess what? He gave ZERO info on how to do anything with the copper top..just ...

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

I ordered this to tackle the nail pulling process I encountered while reclaiming some Bowling alley floors. As I mentioned in a comment on my blog, I usually am not inclined to order anything online that I have not been able to experience first hand. but since I was desperate, and it just so happened that this product was mentioned a couple of times here and there just when I was looking for nail pulling devices, I figured I’d take the plunge and go for it – a little out of the us...

Update 2/3/13- Still like the product. Sears sells tons of accessories at reasonable prices. I still haven’t found any downside to the vacuum. Highly rocommend## About 4 years ago, I bought a Shopvac from Lowes. I cant remember the specs, but it was 10 gallons or so and supposedly 4-5 HP. They were selling them on Black Friday for $40. I actually like the vacuum pretty well and felt it was a good value. So when Lowes had the same vac on sale the following year, I bought a...
