Thin kerf stacked dado... they don't have to start at 1/4"?

I like this site so far, so why not try my hand at a review… As you can see from the picture I have used this blade…for a little more than 2 years. Every thing that can be said about forrest blades applies here. Expensive…Yes, I paid $340. Precision machining… Yes, the brazing is very, dare i say, sexy. Quality…Yes Top level c-4 superhard carbide. Flat bottoms and square walls. VERY. Durable, havn’t sharpened it yet, and don’t plan to ...

Powerful corded drill for serious users

Powerful corded drill for serious users

11-24-2008 08:45 PM by ferstler | 0 comments »

I picked this drill up at Lowe’s for $119 quite some time ago when my wife decided I would build an extensive wooden walkway network out in our yard. Since such things are going to have to be built out of pressure-treated wood I knew I would need a powerful drill to push 1/2-inch bits through wet lumber. I had already drilled lumber like that for a deck job some years back, and I will say that the 3/4 amp drills I had on hand to do the work were stressed by the project considerably. ...

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

Great Bushing Set with Improved Case

09-16-2011 11:37 PM by NiteWalker | 7 comments »

I bought one of these bushing sets way back before woodcraft rebranded all their in house products as woodriver. That set has performed flawlessly over the years. A few things I love about the set is the variety of included sizes, the fact that they’re brass and won’t work loose as easily as steel bushings can, and that all the rims of the guides protrude less than 1/4” so 1/4” template material can be used. I recently bought another set because they’re on ...

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

Gotta love reusable glue spreaders.

10-26-2009 03:59 AM by drfixit | 9 comments »

This is going to be my first review here at LJs and hope some one finds it of use. I normally use the cheap little shop brushes for spreading glue in joints and on tenons and such. I went by the local WoodCraft the other day to pick some up and came across these polypropylene glue spreaders. There is 6 in a pack and at $3.50 I figured it would be worth a shot. Love em! I use a lot of Tight Bond glue, after using one the other night while glueing up a clock case, I simply let it dry over n...

Trend Airsheild, My lungs thank you

Trend Airsheild, My lungs thank you

I have been on the fence about buying one of these for a year now. Christmas is on its way, and Andy has some work ahead of him to provide family and freinds with the gifts they deserve. There is a lot of wood dust that is going to be produced, and I don’t need to store it in my lungs this year. Anyway, this is a positive air preasure filtrating system. Means it constantly blows filtered air over your face so dirty wood dusty air does not enter. It works well. The battery will last...

The circular saw is a disappointment. It has cutting power but the shoe is wiggly. If you need a precise circular saw, choose a different format. Otherwise the P-C tools I tested are good quality withpowerful, high-torque motors and relatively basic features.

Telpro The Troll® 49 Panel Handler

Telpro The Troll® 49 Panel Handler

10-31-2013 03:35 AM by JoelB | 7 comments »

Just bought this to save my back when a client spec’d a project that required 20 sheets of 3/4” MDF. The Troll is an awesome back saver that makes it very easy to move sheet goods around the shop. My storage is roughly 75 feet away from my tablesaw so I needed a simple and inexpensive way to move the 20 sheets around with a minimum of lifting. Basically, to use, you lay the Troll against the sheet at about midpoint. Then you lift/tilt the panel until the lip on the bottom of ...

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...
