I bought this gun to install 1500 board ft of crown. It’s light weight really helped when useing it over head. It came with two triggers one for “bump” fire and a standard trigger. Portercable has made this gun oilless, which I love. It also has a belt clip which is very handy. Overall this is an excellent gun to own.

Inexpensive but surprisingly good

Just purchased a Numax SP123 pinner from Amazon for Under $30. I had a project to apply some fine moulding which would be split by 18 guage brads and did a seach on pinners. Did not want to spend alot as I did not know if I would ever use it again and found this one and by looking it appeared to be good value. Anyway, got it along with some 3/4” pins and it really works great so far. It will shoot 1/2’ to 1” pins and has has a setting which adjust the depth of the ma...

A real help

I purchsed the I-Socket from Rockler for $29.99 + Free shipping. The instructions and web site say that it’s for a vacuums and dust collectors. I personally wouldn’t use it on my 2 HP Dust Collector. It just doesn’t look like it’s made well enough to handle that much inrush current. I purchased the I-Socket for one thing, using with my compound sliding miter saw. It works just as advertised. When you squeeze the trigger on the miter saw, the vac starts right ...

Duelen Planer Blade Sharpening Jig 12"

Duelen Planer Blade Sharpening Jig 12"

10-06-2014 11:28 PM by PatrickB | 6 comments »

Got this handy little gizmo in the mail the other day and used it right off on my DeWalt 12 1/2” planer blades. I would wait until all six edges need sharpening before sharpening the blades. It’s easier to sharpen 6 edges and keep it even for all the edges. I sharpen 2 edges, remove one blade and flip the other blade and put in the 3rd blade and sharpen as before. Then remove the blade that was flipped and install the first removed blade with one edge needing sharpening still. And...

Restoring, Tuning & Using Classic Woodworking tools by Michael Dunbar256 pages.Published in 1989 This is an excellent book that I have had in my library for quite a while. It is currently out of print, so it has become quite expensive on the second hand market. You can find it on Amazon.com or half.com. The book is well written with lots of photographs to illustrate the author’s points. He covers information about why and how to select old tools and then goes in detail in s...

American Wood & Metal Planes: From the Collection of the D'Elia Antique Tool Museum

American Wood & Metal Planes: From the Collection of the D'Elia Antique Tool Museum

A post card came with the “Patented Transitional and Metallic Planes in America” Vol II for this book. It was about $30 -$35 shipped. I decided to buy it. If you like hand planes, buy, use and collect hand planes, this book is a must have. If you like thumbing through 340 pages of high quality pictures of hand plane, with maker, inventor and some other relevant information, this book is a must have. It doesn’t have the detailed information like Roger Smith’s two...

Great Electric Saw

Great Electric Saw

01-01-2012 09:11 PM by doug1980 | 3 comments »

Let me start by saying I was a lumberjack for 10 years, and only used Stihl. Even now Stihl is the best in my opinion. Having said that they are expensive, and I couldn’t justify spending over $300 for an electric saw. This saw has a 16” bar, tool-less chain tensioning and has 3.5 HP. I use it to shape my bowl blanks in the shop, since my wife has banned me from using my Stihl 290 in the shop. Apparently it stinks up the whole house, who knew. For less than $100 it was a gre...

Drillnado Drill Press Dust Collection with one problem

Drillnado Drill Press Dust Collection with one problem

I purchased this product at the Tampa woodworking show. The inventor was at the show and demoed the dust collection. I thought that the dust collection setup had a small footprint. I’ve tried other methods that just got in the way at the DP. The cost was $39. Included the quill for attaching to the DP, two housings and additional fittings to secure the quill. At the show, a second housing was provided with the purchase. I’m not sure if that is the case with every purchase...
