Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review

11-04-2014 06:58 PM by woodshopmike | 17 comments »

The things that make this kit great are that it’s quick and easy to use. Woodworkers are famous for “being one tool away from greatness”. Well, I’m here to say that as far as sharpening my hand tools goes, I’m set and this is the only sharpening kit I’ll be using. I’d highly recommend this product to professional and hobbyist woodworkers alike. For my complete tool review check out the post, Trend Diamond Whetstone Kit, Up For Review. Thanks ...

Bev Up smoother from veritas

Bev Up smoother from veritas

Had this now for several months. I have all three plane blades which come in different angles. No matter the wood I am usually able to achieve a good finish.

Better than I expected.

Better than I expected.

I’ve always been skeptical of electric chainsaws but when a maple blew down in our yard I decided to give electric a shot. A gas powered saw would rarely get used and probably the next time I needed it, wouldn’t run. What I really wanted was an Earthwise, not a brand I’m familiar with but they have rave reviews. Unfortunately my only choice locally was Poulan. Once home I filled it with bar oil, plugged in and went to work on a 14” wide limb and it zipped right thro...

Incra miter gauge very good, but it takes a bit of work

Incra miter gauge very good, but it takes a bit of work

10-13-2014 04:51 AM by ic3ss | 23 comments »

So I finally took the plunge and ditched my miter gauge that came with my old Unisaw. I never really used it, it just sat there if needed. Well, I knew from experience that it was crap so it has gone away. Bought the 1000HD a while back and have been using it for a few weeks and man am I impressed. This is what Made in USA is all about. I’ve been loving everything about it, but it took a bit of work. I picked it up at Rockler on sale for $119. First off, the thing is packaged ver...

Remote Control

Remote Control

03-11-2013 11:56 AM by OSU55 | 20 comments »

Need a remote power switch for your dust collector or other accessory? While all of my tools are mounted on mobile bases, I got tired of having to move things aound to get to the dust collector power switch. My DC is a cheapo from Harbor Freight, so it didn’t come with a remote. A quick perusal of the box stores online found this at Wally World. Rated at 13A it’s enough for my small DC and is rated for outdoor use, so water and humidity aren’t an issue. The receiver just plu...

Teaching a class at Lee Valley

Teaching a class at Lee Valley

04-06-2011 07:07 PM by JuniorJoiner | 13 comments »

I want to start by saying I enjoyed myself and I think the students left with better hand tool and dovetail skills than they started with. I had many handshakes and smiles at the end, so I hope everyone feels that they got their moneys worth of instruction. Now the critique. there was a critique form for the students, but not for me. I had offered to teach a different class, but told them I was flexible if they needed something covered off, which I am. I received an e-mail some weeks la...

50 inch Digital Camera Tripod for $6.99 plus free shipping on eBay

50 inch Digital Camera Tripod for $6.99 plus free shipping on eBay

06-23-2009 05:13 PM by Dan'um Style | 5 comments »

Hey Guys ! Great deal on a tripod for your digital cameras. Very light duty, but holds the camera very still. Below is a camera test slide show … I took 16 photos in a dark room around 10:30 at night. Photos are each at a different combinations of camera settings, alternating between types of flash and focus settings. With the tripod I took 16 photos in a row, without blur. Granted the photos suck, but the tripod held the camera very steady....link to ebay seller...link to an auct...

Great Bandsaw Blade

Great Bandsaw Blade

01-05-2013 05:05 AM by NormG | 8 comments »

After Reading MBS’ review I ordered the same blade. It arrived today while I was at work. Very well packaged and in good shape. After dinner, I went out to the shop and installed on my newer Craftsman 12” 89 1/2” blade (Similar to the Rikon). It is a great saw. After about 15 minutes of setup it was ready to go. Blade is noticeably quieter than the Timber Wolf blades I have been using. I followed the instructions and used a slower rate to break the blade in. The I ...

Woodcraft the best Customer Service and support for Wood River Planes

06-20-2012 11:28 AM by bloqbeta | 12 comments »

I bought my first plane, a Wood River No. 4 Plane and had it shipped to my sister in Florida, who brought it down to Guatemala where I live, that took almost 2 months. I received it yesterday and prepared it for the bench, cleaned all the gunk, honed the blade perfectly, razor sharp with an imperceptible camber. Grabbed a beautiful plank of highly figured mahogany and started planing the face of the board, and to my surprise, it left a very deep indentation. They were not plane track but...

Iron Dog Tape Clip with 3 Pockets

Iron Dog Tape Clip with 3 Pockets

10-05-2011 04:50 AM by TexAus | 1 comment »

I thought I’d post some pics of a little pouch that I love. It is just the right size to hold my tape measure, utility knife, pencils, etc. It has a nice clip on the back so you can easily clip it to your belt or pants. It is very light, has excellent build quality, and looks pretty cool to boot. And the price is not bad either. http://www.shop.irondogtoolgear.com/Tape-Clip-with-3-Pockets-70016.htm
