I must admit, I know very few mobile bases that are actually worth much, and this one is no exception. The brakes have no chance of holding against a load; The entire setup is very unstable, everything wobbles; Universal = Universal from 24×24 to 36×36

Woodworking Skills from the 1800's

Woodworking Skills from the 1800's

11-16-2011 12:01 PM by MsDebbieP | 16 comments »

This book review is from the November 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)The Art and Craft of Cabinet Making by D. Denning This is another of the historic books, this one being written in 1891. This book doesn’t hold as much appeal to me due to it being a lot of words and fewer diagrams. But—some of the headings listed in the contents had me turning the pages to take a look. For example, don’t ...

Foot Savers

Foot Savers

07-26-2011 06:33 AM by coloradoclimber | 8 comments »

My shop space has a concrete floor. I’m ok with the concrete, it is easy to clean and easy to roll my tools around. But it is KILLER on my feet and back. I have flat feet, you know the kind that when you walk barefoot they make a sucking sound when you pick your feet up. The kind that when people see your foot prints in the sand they think the web footed monster from the black lagoon must have strolled by. And because of my feet after any full day in the shop my feet just ache, whi...

A Good Value

A Good Value

03-17-2014 12:06 AM by Purrmaster | 16 comments »

This review is for the Diablo/Freud 10 inch, 40 tooth circular saw blade. Model number D1040X I got this at Home Depot for around $30 or so. My Freud blades needed sharpening and I needed to put something on my tablesaw. I was very pleasantly surprised by this blade. It rips almost as well as my Freud 30 tooth (thin kerf) ripping blade. It leaves a smooth finish when crosscutting. The blade stayed sharp as long as my Freud blades did. Which is unsurprising, considering it is actu...

Popular Woodworking Easy to Build Birdhouses A Natural Approach

Popular Woodworking Easy to Build Birdhouses A Natural Approach

06-18-2012 05:25 PM by Daris | 1 comment »

I love all things BIRD.  There, I said it.  I like birds, birdhouses, bird feeders, bird baths, bird stores, and most of all I enjoy making some of these things.  Surprisingly though, I’ve never bought a project book of just bird houses(although many of the books I have include some plans).  I picked up the book Easy to Build Birdhouses - A Natural Approach: Must Know Info to Attract and Keep the Birds You Want (Popular Woodworking) at Amazon for a really reasonable price.  I have thoro...

A surprisingly flimsy tool from INCRA--Not recommended

A surprisingly flimsy tool from INCRA--Not recommended

07-06-2009 03:54 AM by Durnik150 | 14 comments »

Price $36.99 via Amazon and Rockler Coming from a company like Incra I expected this item to be one top of the line rule. I was wrong. Throw in the excessive cost and in my opinion we have an item that can be passed over for something better. The measurement increments are accurate and as specific as can be. However, this rule is stamped from very flimsy material that easily bends and gets pulled out of alignment. This defeats the point of this item since it is designed to sit alont the...

Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

Final Cut THIS WORKS GREAT!!!!!!

11-22-2008 05:21 AM by Built2Last | 7 comments »

First, sorry but I couldn’t get a picture of the final cut to load so I loaded a picture of one of my glider’s. Check out this by MCLS!! http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/ec081111.html While I have not acutally used theirs, I did take atwo 100 grit sanding discs that were 12 inch and cut them down to 9 inch and put them on an old bosch blade that I knew left a lot of saw marks and I was amazed at how smooth the rips came out. I usually use a Forrest woodworker...

Great Earmuffs

Great Earmuffs

12-24-2011 04:36 PM by Vaborn7795 | 3 comments »

This is my first review and most all my tools already have a ton of reviews already, so i thought i would review my earmuffs. These things were only $23 on amazon and plug right up with my iphone. The sound quality is outstanding and the ear protection is great as well. With machines running and volume only half to 3/4 the way on, I could easily hear the music i was listening to. Most will probably not even need it turned up that high. I am already starting to loose my hearing, so I prob...
