Hole in hollow door

Hole in hollow door

05-09-2011 09:40 PM by diynot | 1 comment »

I was freaking out about a crazy shaped hole on my door that I had to fix cheaply myself and as fast as possible (before tomorrow).Luckily the guys at my local hardware store were no strangers to holes in doors and confidently suggested i try this product. It was cheap, and all I needed was this, fine grit sand paper and paint (which i have) as well as a cheap plastic putty knife. This picture shown is just one application. As you can see the damage was pretty intense and I pretty much h...

Elbo articulated hollower

Elbo articulated hollower

07-27-2011 12:46 AM by michelletwo | 3 comments »

I just set up this new tool and hollowed this piece of firewood( 8×5w ) to 6 inches. Very easy to use. (I have hollowed by hand, so I do know how) Anyone who has a modest amount of turning experience will find it relatively easy to do. I got this from Packard Woodworks and I believe it is the least expensive on the market at this time. The bad? One of the grub screws was already stripped before I even put it together. One of the long bolts that clamp the holder on the quill, was sh...

Bessey Customer Service - Credit where it is due

Bessey Customer Service - Credit where it is due

01-27-2011 06:56 AM by RobWoodCutter | 19 comments »

Customer Service Last year I bought a bunch of Bessey clamps from one of the big online retailers and several of the K-body’s came pourly package and thus several clamps came in damaged. I contacted them and they sent some replacement parts. About a month ago I purchased some of the longer Bessey’s K-Bodys from the same online retails and they too came with pour packaging and had some damage. The online retailer offered a small credit if I chose to keep them or I could send th...

I don’t have a single new power tool in my shop. I have inherited quite a collection and what I don’t have i like to buy from craigslist / ebay. This means that I do a lot of cleaning up and rust removing. So far I have bought a ridged contractor table saw circa 2000 a delta homecraft jointer circa 1950. As you can Imagine they didn’t run so smooth at first. The table saw had been rusting in an aircraft hanger for a few years and had a light coating of rust on everything....

Safety has become too easy

Safety has become too easy

I have been using a miter slot feather board on my table saw for some time now and call me lazy, half of the time I would not use it. Trying to set up for a single cut ripping sawmill lumber with one straight edge was such a hassle I quit doing it. I am a one man shop and the time it would take me to set up the old feather board I could rip 2 boards and for me that was too much. Lets jump forward to last night. I am working on a project that required crown molding and someone, I, forgot t...

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

03-03-2014 05:24 AM by Lumberpunk | 3 comments »

I bought this kits a few months ago and didn’t get time to make the body until recently. As usual with Veritas products I found the packaging to be minimal, which I like. All the parts felt well made right away and the blade was already very flat and sharp, a few minutes on the worksharp brought it up to a nice mirror finish. The instructions are detailed and clear and have a good tool and materials list at the beginning as well as warning you when any operation is crucial to be p...

I finally had a real need to use the Dremel Saw-Max I recieved for Christmas last year. Had an entertainment center to cut down for a smaller area. I wanted to make the simplest cuts to remove height from the cabinet. A straight edge and my Saw-Max did the trick. I was concerned that the abrasive type blades would not be able to cut cleanly without tearout, and may cause burning. Not to worry. This little guy is the best. I am more than pleased with the performance. I have now used ...
