This saw is discontinued now, replaced by a new model but some stores around me still have a few left on their shelves. I picked mine up for about $360.00, that price for a Bosch slider is pretty good in my books. As with any other miter saw out there dust collection sucks but that is to be expected I guess. It came with a 60 tooth blade that worked great but after its life was up I replaced it with a Freud. The only real problem that this one has is that it is very hard to pull down when you...

A good video for beginning handplaning

A good video for beginning handplaning

935 days ago by Tennwood | 1 comment »

I am just getting into hand planing and got this video for Christmas along with both Schwarz’s and Garrett Hack’s handplane books. I found the video well made and edited for an instructional video. Schwartz is articulate and obviously very knowledgeable about handplanes. The following quote from book seller site well summarizes the production of this video – “This DVD doesn’t simply spout off a new idiosyncratic way to work with bench planes. Instead Schwarz e...

Knife Sharpening the easy way

Knife Sharpening the easy way

14 days ago by David White | 7 comments »

Not really a woodworking tool, but some of you may find this useful. I have recently started to try my hand at knife making (which is way fun – more on that later) but have always found it tricky to get a really good edge on a curved blade – I know the theory well enough, but somehow I can never quite translate theory into practice. Anyway, a few weeks ago I was perusing amazon.com and stumbled across this Professional Fixed-angle Knife Sharpener System The Amazon blurb was a ...

First one was a dud, second one is fine.

Mind you, pnuematic nailers are honestly very simple tools as far as air tools go. The driver is simply a piston, with a simple connecting rod sort of arrangment. You would think that if a company is going to build a product that has a piston, a connecting rod, and motion, that there would be a wrist pin right? Well not in my first one. Now #2 is working great. It leaks a tiny bit of air, but that is my fault. I took the thing apart to inspect it and managed to tear one of the paper gaskets. ...

GREAT MULTI PURPOSE SHOP TOWEL

GREAT MULTI PURPOSE SHOP TOWEL

1401 days ago by Roz | 15 comments »

I want to tell my fellow LJ’s about the towels I am using in my shop. An ordering mistake at work introduced them to me. I found these towels very good for prepping a surface prior to applying a finishing or painting. These little towels are great for removing dust and debris, getting it all, leaving no residue or fiber behind. One towel will last a very long time and can be reused. I have used them for applying wiping stains and finished with good results. I have used these towels as f...

A simple solution

A simple solution

I bought this featherboard yesterday for use with my old craftsman table saw. Works about as well as any miter slot featherboard, but the on/off magnetic feature means I can mount this anywhere on the primary table or extension wings. Although I did not consider it at the time of purchase, I could also see this product being useful on my jointer, and especially my shaper. The magnets are STRONG, and the featherboard didn’t move even slightly during the two cuts I’ve made with it s...

A great resource for both hand and power tool in woodworking

A great resource for both hand and power tool in woodworking

1830 days ago by Ben | 1 comment »

When I was in college I wanted to start building things out of wood. So I went to my library (Pickler Memorial at Truman State University) and this is what I found. It was actually a series of three books “Joinery”, “Shaping, Veneering, and Finishing”, and “FurnitureMaking.” It seemed like an older series, but it was all they had so I checked them out. What a great source of information! These books were fanatastic. Tage Frid takes you through everyst...

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

1976 days ago by TraumaJacques | 0 comments »

I don’t know about you but I use screwdrivers allot around the shop. The problem is that there are so many different type and size of screws that I need several on hand at all time. They inevitably fall on the floor roll under the bench or simply disappear or blend in the mess on the bench top. Over the years I have bought several “multi “screwdrivers and they pretty much all were garbage. Now this one I must say is the “best screwdriver I have ever owned and will never buy an...

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

Jebson 1409V - 3/8" (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill

1268 days ago by steliart | 0 comments »

Jebson 1409V variable, reversible corded drill & screwdriver 3/8” (10mm) Variable, Reversible Double Insulated Drill I was looking for a small corded quality drill that will be easy on my hands to use, controllable, robust and powerful. The shop guy recommended (introduced) this drill to me and even though its price was a bit high for the moment I hold it in my hands it felt right, so I went for it. There was nothing fancy coming with it in the box, just the drill and its chuc...

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

Happy With My First Blade Purchase

1718 days ago by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

So as promised (in Knottscott's review of the Delta 35-7657), here’s my review of its 60-tooth cousin. The night Scott reviewed that blade, I noticed Tooliday had the 60-tooth version up for $25, plus $5 S/H. I had been looking at Freud blades that were about $20-30 more, so I thought what the heck, I’ll give it a shot. I’ve been using a single 40-tooth blade for everything (came with the tablesaw I bought used of Craigslist), along with painters tape to keep the chippin...
