Horton Brasses = reputable service

Horton Brasses = reputable service

1825 days ago by Don Newton | 11 comments »

Lumberjocks, Quite often our reviews are for hand tools or machines, and rightly so, but the crowning touch to many furniture building projects is hardware. I am a hobbyist who enjoys building period furniture. The hardware available at Horton Brasses is second to none, whether it is a pair of hinges or a set of Chippendale style pulls for a highboy, and their customer service department is the model that all company’s should aspire to. As a consumer with choices, who’s mone...

What to do except buying somewhere else ?

What to do except buying somewhere else ?

868 days ago by Johnny Boy | 6 comments »

For the last 4 years I have tried to do business with Busybee Tools. As many of us, I was impressed by the unbeatable price. Unfortunately, every single order I have placed was a nightmare. Defective dust collector, items not as described, items not available, orders not shipped after several months, missing parts. I have never received a full order without having to complain about it.3 days ago, after 29 days, I have received an email to let me know the item I was waiting for (a 38” st...

Ryobi Right-Angle Drill

Ryobi Right-Angle Drill

1969 days ago by ferstler | 0 comments »

I used this drill in conjunction with a Ridgid right-angle impact driver (also reviewed previously) to install some crown moldings on kitchen cabinets that I installed some years back. My wife and an interior designer she hired made the suggestion and I always follow my wife’s suggestions. The drill was used to help secure hidden backer boards to the cabinet top edges. I had already attached the backers to the moldings out in my workshop. The Ryobi unit worked just fine in that tight...

Arghhh

Arghhh

This review for the Harbor Freight adjustable roller stand. Item #46086. The one with the red roller. I got this last week to use as outfeed support for my planer and jointer. I needed something cheap and easy to support the long beech boards I was planing. This tool has mostly been an exercise in frustration. The bad news: Adjusting it is very difficult and highly annoying. It’s adjusted by moving the rod that holds the roller up and down within the base. This is a common...

Not their latest, but worthy of consideration if on a budget

Not their latest, but worthy of consideration if on a budget

1499 days ago by ErikB | 2 comments »

I’ve owned this router for two or three years and I’ve been very happy with its performance. The controls are easy to use, offers ample power, and there are several accessories available should you need additional features (template guides, straight edge guide, etc.) Plunging the router is simple, and the depth gauge is awesome. The variable speed motor runs well and offers soft start after you pull the trigger (in other words, it goes from zero to 100 gradually, not zero to...

You get what you pay for

You get what you pay for

170 days ago by laketrout36 | 7 comments »

Here’s a set I received as a gift. Most of the bits I have yet to use. A few have been used a few times. If you are only going to use these bits at most a few times each and not demanding great results then OK. But if you need quality results and don’t want to play games with something just to use it then pass on them. The case they come in is durable and each bits location is labeled with an image of the bit shape so that is a positive. The second picture I included shows...

Hand tool book review

Hand tool book review

2253 days ago by Betsy | 3 comments »

I just finished this book by Popular Woodworking. Like most of their books, this is a group of articles previously published in the various magazines they have a hand in. If you are a Christopher Schwartz fan, you won’t be disappointed – there are 15 articles by Chris, not including the book’s introduction. Overall this is a very good read. The “chapters” are small enough to make it an easy “pick up when I have a minute” type of book. It’s pa...

Incra - Customer Service

Incra - Customer Service

51 days ago by twobyfour16 | 19 comments »

Just a quick review of Incra’s customer service – which I give a resounding 5 stars! I bought one of their table saw router table combo packages back in mid December & just got around to opening up the boxes. I am installing the fence system and router table on a new SawStop PCS that I just picked up this weekend. First of all, their ordering process and shipping were spot-on. Obviously, I should have opened up all of the packages when I received them, but I did not open u...

Pneuhook - If you use a air tools this hook is for you.

Pneuhook - If you use a air tools this hook is for you.

37 days ago by Brett41 | 6 comments »

I saw this product posted on my friends Facebook page and noticed all the positive responses so I checked out the website. The video on the site was pretty good and showed how the hook can be used with all air nail guns. I noticed they were in some local stores on Cape Cod. After I could feel the thing and see that it was made well I grabbed one to try for myself to see if it was as easy as the the video made it look. I figured I could always return it. It turns out I really like itR...

DeWalt finally hears a who...torx conversion

DeWalt finally hears a who...torx conversion

466 days ago by joeyinsouthaustin | 11 comments »

The DeWalt 735 regularly gets positive reviews… This is sort of an addendum. I have championed this tool often, and Those who have kept up know I have a bias towards it. x y I run three of them now, and years of experience with the ins and outs of this loud but compact beast. The one knock this tool gets is the many complaints about the bolts stripping. While I have never done this, I will admit to feeling many times that it was _about to happen. And size of the factory key didn̵...
