Great video on saw sharpening

Great video on saw sharpening

11-14-2012 01:59 AM by Kreegan | 7 comments »

This afternoon I finished watching “Sharpening your handsaws with Ron Herman” on Shop Class on Demand from Popular Woodworking. It’s an online streaming version of the DVD of the same name. I enjoyed it so much and feel like I learned so much from it that I’m going to order a copy of the DVD to keep when my subscription runs out. Ron Herman is a traditional housewright in Columbus, OH, and the owner of Antiquity Builders. They specialize in period accurate home buil...

Not Bad Afterall

Not Bad Afterall

10-19-2011 09:55 PM by pintodeluxe | 27 comments »

Had blade marks after ripping 1.5” white oak. Even after taking a skim cut with featherboard and zero clearance insert with thin kerf splitter I still had blade marks. Not burning, just the sort of cut that reveals its imperfections when you hold it up to the light. My industrial full kerf combination blade sure makes glassy smooth cuts compared to this one. In fact I had to switch back to the Freud combination blade to make skim cuts on all boards. Too much work. This one is goi...

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

I have owned a Bostitch pin nailer for three years now and it has been a miserable experience. But today it finally made me happy. How? Well I too a 15 pound sledge hammer to it and smashed it to smithereens. I do hereby swear to never ever purchase another Bostitch tool. A big name with poor designs, I am very disappointed in them.

Economical Brad Nailer

Economical Brad Nailer

10-05-2009 07:02 PM by nmkidd | 12 comments »

Bostich BT200k 18 Gauge Pneumatic Brad Nailer. The unit came with a case, instructions and warranty. The housing is magnesium and is very lite weight (listed at 6 lbs). It is also oil free, which I find to be a plus. There is an adjustable depth control and a sequential trip mechanism. Recommended air pressure is 70psi to 120 psi. It will shoot brads from 5/8” to 2”. This is a factory reconditioned item and comes with a 1 year warranty. Cost was $34.99 including shipping from ...

Great for uneven floors

Great for uneven floors

10-14-2009 06:39 AM by DannyBoy | 8 comments »

From the start, I needed to make sure that my saw would be movable. With a small shop, floor space is at a premium and it only makes things difficult to admit that my floor is not at all level and even. This system took care of both of those needs. The casters are well built and work well on the uneven floor. Plus, once you are done moving the unit, you flip it down onto it’s own feet right into your floors sweet-spot. Two bits of advice: First, you probably won’t matc...

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 what you expect

Not what you expect

These googles are presented by Lee Valley as combing function and form: comprehensive eye protection (though “not certified for industrial use”) and a “cool retro look.” The look IS cool, if that is at all important, and the youngsters in your life are sure to point out that you resemble a Minion from the kids’ movie Despicable Me. Giving the children a laugh is about as much satisfaction as you can expect from these googles. I’m a hobbyist, an evening...

Porter Cable 690LR "Ouch"

Porter Cable 690LR "Ouch"

11-23-2014 11:47 PM by captferd | 11 comments »

Been using Porter Cable routers Since mid 80’s. Cant wear them out. Well at least not till now. I was setting the adjustments on my plunge router when the handle suddenly just broke. My thumb got a pretty good slice in the process. Luckily it wasn’t running at the time, that could have been disastrous. My advise to anyone that has one of these routers with the hard plastic handles would be to replace them. I had some rubber ones from another base that fit. I’m not sure if ag...

Circa 1850 Try Plane

Circa 1850 Try Plane

01-31-2011 03:23 AM by Dave | 19 comments »

I was in need of a joiner plane. I had come across this plane at a antiques shop in MS. For a grand total of $27.00. It needed a little work. The mouth was missing a chunk in front of it. On the blade is stamped [dwights french and co.]. On the nose of the plane is stamped [H. J. Nazero and co. of Milwaukee]. And all over the plane is stamped [B. F. Pfeiffer]. Doing some internet research. I can place the manufacture of the blade and the plane between 1850-60.Now with a piece of red oak. I r...

Because this is identical to the Wood River model, I posted my review with the other under that category. http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/3960
