Must Read for the Galoot in all of us

Must Read for the Galoot in all of us

I had been looking to pick this book and while I was at the Sacramento Woodworking show I ordered one from the Lee Valley booth. They had a nice discount on the book and the shipping was free. Chris Schwarz is one of my favorite woodworking authors. He is the editor for Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine. He also has an excellent blog that covers all forms of furnature building, workbench and hand tool topics. He also has produced a number of excellent handplane, tool and ...

I had contacted rhett after seeing a post about evaluating hand planes. Rhett sent me a care package to share with my students. I run a woodworking club for my 7th and 8th grade students. I recieved a completed plane with test shavings, a plane glued up, a kit ready to be glued and some blades and plane body blanks. I want to publically thank Rhett for his generosity and support of my students wodworking journey. The assembled plane worked perfectly after i adjusted the plane after is journey...

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 ...

Good metal detector -- well worth the initial cost!

Good metal detector -- well worth the initial cost!

If you are in the market for a metal detector for wood, this is a good one. While the calibration is kinda tricky, once you get it set, it detects metal pretty good. One nice feature is that this offers three cues when finding metal: Sight, Sound and Vibration! When metal is detected, the light changes from green to red, a beep sounds, and you can even choose for the handle to vibrate. Unlike the Little Wizaed, the Lumber Wizard works! I feel safe to trust my planer, jointer or bandsaw...

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...

I was in need to make 6” and 6 1/4” circles for my dust collection HVAC blast gates and support holders. My Microfence circular router jig CAN go as low as 6”, but I had to install a Bosch router adapter which changes the minimum diameter to 7”. I’ve reviewed other circle cutters and decided on the Grizzly because it looks more “stout” and there are zero reviews I could find so … a crap shoot :) I could of went with a hole saw but that is a f...

Long story short. This is my second iGaging angle block. The first had a defective LCD on top of displaying constant error even with a fresh battery.This one the LCD is ok but even at a sale price of 20 it’s waste of money since you may have to spend at least half of that in gas returning and exchanging.Measured against all my engineering squares and then some and two other Wixey’s this thing is so off that’s not even funny. The problem is also inconsistency. It’s not always off by sam...
