Elbo articulated hollower

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...

I don’t sell any of my creations, but there’s lot of Lumberjocks here that are trying the best they can to market their creations. So here’s a new place you can advertise. Why don’t you check out Woodshoppers This site was created by one of our members, Krum, & her son Paul. I recently had success selling my Ryobi powercarver on this site. I had advertised it on craigslist for a long time, with no results. I think it’s worth a try to s...

Ease of use

Ease of use

I have been needing another method of sharpening other than by hand. I have been using a 3 and 6 inch grinder for shaping, and Arkansas stone’s for fine tuning. For plane blades, a large piece of glass with assorted grits of wet or dry sandpaper. I have made some jigs for the grinders to get somewhat of a hollow bevel started. And have had some reasonable success with the bevel. As long as I was not dealing with 2 inches or larger. But the stones and my inconsistency of sharpening have ...

Momentary Power Foot Switch

Momentary Power Foot Switch

How many time when starting your router or your drill press or other power tool did you wish you had one more hand to grab firmly on the piece you were ready to machine? Often we present a piece of wood on the router just at right place to route it and then we need to let go of it to start the router and then the piece move. Or we hardly can hold one large piece , we do not feel very safe and then we need to let go of one hand to start the router or the drill press. After I refurbished...

Serious upgrade

Serious upgrade

Purchased this at the PA location during their going out of business sale. The retail price was $545 they sold it to me for $475 since they were clearing out the store. In the past I used a craftsman 10”. This new saw has plenty of power. It is covered in grease and assembly took about an hour. I can’t speak for the factory blade as I replaced it with a Timberwof blade. Cuts are clean and fence & table are sturdy and square. The only complaint I have is how difficu...

Angle Checker

Angle Checker

09-20-2011 06:18 PM by Don W | 10 comments »

I bought this angle checker being I was ordering a bunch of other stuff from Woodcraft. I’ve seen these almost everywhere so I figured it would be handy to have at my sharpening bench. Bottom line, it just doesn’t work. When you slide a plane blade in (even a thick iron) it goes into the hole cut at the end so the angle of the blade really doesn’t register. You can pull it back some and “eye ball” it, but if your going to eye ball it, you might as well just use a...

I had this machine shipped from Grizzly several months ago. The shipping was timely arriving in just three business days! The machine was everything I hoped for. The tables were dead flat. They adjusted to absolute coplanar. And the machine was very powerful. I had an 1×8” hard maple board set aside just to test this machine and it trued it lickety split. I’ve been using it for months now and am very happy with this purchase. It trues up stock square and smoot...

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

Butterfly Inlays Made Easy

03-21-2009 01:25 AM by knotscott | 7 comments »

Even for a first timer, this inlay kit worked flawlessly as advertised. Using just basic router skills, it couldn’t be much simpler. Put the bit and the guide bushing in the router, trace the template to cut the receiving hole, add the spacer to trace out the inlay with the same template, cut the inlay piece free from the stock, and place it in the complimenting cutout hole. Some sanding may be required to make everything flush, and a practice run is always a good idea. The tip of the ...

Tuning up

Tuning up

05-08-2011 11:19 PM by boatlark | 1 comment »

Some months ago I was given a Veritas scraping plane as a present. As is almost always the case with Veritas this tool worked right from the box. As I’d no real project to test it on I spend some time trying to work out how to get it tuned and working really well. Despite the comprehensive intstructions I struggled to get it to cut cleanly until I did away with the ‘hook’ on the blade. With the back of the blade lapped and polished and a good finish to the 45 degree bevel...
