Gimlets

Gimlets

02-24-2012 01:08 PM by Roger | 8 comments »

This is the 1st time, and NOT the last that I will use these handy-dandy “Gimlets”. The 7 different sizes are a gr8, and quick way to make a threaded starter hole for the 7 different sized screws. I just used the smallest of the set to attach the buttons for the backs of a few picture frames. Very simple, and ez/breeeezee. These are made in France, and very affordable. You can see em at this link: http://www.garrettwade.com/set-of-gimlets-7/p/37J03.04/

Protect Your Ears

Protect Your Ears

10-31-2008 02:26 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 10 comments »

Recently one my posts came up where I talked about ZEM hearing protection. At the time I was amazing at how well they worked. It’s been over a year now of using them, and I won’t use anything else now. They are very comfortable to wear, for long periods if needed. They are lightweight and don’t have to go “deep” into the ear canal. The foam earpieces just enter the outside of the ear canal. They really don’t feel like they are in your ear, like other earplugs. I’m not sure if I can r...

Now I've seen it all!!!

Now I've seen it all!!!

The other day one of my co-workers was telling me about a new scent in the line of products she carries (wax scent bars) and of coarse she thought of me, probably because I drive her nuts talking about woodworking (BTW I work with all woman) Anyway back on task :).... The scent to me didnt smell like wood, Kind of a prerequisite I thought, but its not a bad scent either, confusing right? When I think of my woodshop I think of fresh saw dust early in the morning but this missed the mark a bit....

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

Veritas Large Spokeshave Kit

03-03-2014 05:24 AM by Lumberpunk | 3 comments »

I bought this kits a few months ago and didn’t get time to make the body until recently. As usual with Veritas products I found the packaging to be minimal, which I like. All the parts felt well made right away and the blade was already very flat and sharp, a few minutes on the worksharp brought it up to a nice mirror finish. The instructions are detailed and clear and have a good tool and materials list at the beginning as well as warning you when any operation is crucial to be p...

Sandboss

Sandboss

I have been looking for a long time to find a quality built pneumatic sanding drum, and my wife beat me to it. She found this one at Lee Valley Tools, and gave it to me for an early Christmas gift. I purchased half a dozen used wine barrels this Summer and it is the perfect tool for sanding the curved surfaces of the staves. I use my 6”x108” belt sander for doing the edges.

The Little Vac That Could

The Little Vac That Could

03-24-2014 12:39 PM by pashley | 2 comments »

Ok, never thought I’d be writing a review about a shop vac, but… I ordered this by mail order from Home Depot, wanting to replace my burned out 16 gallon shop vac, which was used to collect sawdust from my big tools. This was a wrong choice, because the hose diameter was only 1 1/4”, and not the 2 1/2” I really needed – my mistake. Nevertheless, the assembly was easy, and I appreciated it used vac bags, which is much easier to change, versus tipping ove...

Great Earmuffs

Great Earmuffs

12-24-2011 04:36 PM by Vaborn7795 | 3 comments »

This is my first review and most all my tools already have a ton of reviews already, so i thought i would review my earmuffs. These things were only $23 on amazon and plug right up with my iphone. The sound quality is outstanding and the ear protection is great as well. With machines running and volume only half to 3/4 the way on, I could easily hear the music i was listening to. Most will probably not even need it turned up that high. I am already starting to loose my hearing, so I prob...

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

My Bostitch nailer finally made me happy today

09-29-2014 07:18 PM by OttoH | 19 comments »

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.

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

05-30-2014 02:36 PM by Billy E | 1 comment »

This review is for the 10-inch, 48-tooth, ultra thin kerf (5/64”) version of the TS2000 blade. I have used a number of different blades including cross cutting blades up to 96 tooth and ripping blades down to 24 tooth. Most are freud, some are dewalt,one delta, etc… This is my first Ridge Carbide blade. I got the 5/64” version because I am using a fairly underpowered Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I’ve always used thin kerf (3/32” or thereabout) with the sa...

Excellent Small Bandsaw

Excellent Small Bandsaw

01-25-2015 02:12 PM by OSU55 | 11 comments »

I kept running into situations where a bandsaw would have made a particular step in a project very easy vs trying to use a jigsaw. I researched bandsaws, with most of the info surrounding 14” and larger saws. There wasn’t a lot of info on smaller saws, and I didn’t give them a lot of thought. After some research I realized a smaller saw would do about all the things I had needed one for, have a smaller footprint, be a lot smaller expenditure, and if the smaller saw was any g...
