Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

Good Light to Medium Duty Drill/Driver

10-01-2010 07:55 PM by Dedvw | 9 comments »

Purchased this drill just over a week ago for a really good price ($88 brand new). Box came with the drill, 2 batteries, flashlight, charger and carrying case. The owners manual was not in the box but this was not really an issue, Ridgid makes it very easy to find the PDF manual on their website. The tool itself appears very well made with a good blend of plastic and metal parts. The weight of the Drill is pretty good (a little lighter then my Makita 14.4V) but is a bit top heavy making it...

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

Rikon 2HP Dust Collector with Jet Vortex Cone

12-11-2014 07:26 AM by chrisworker | 11 comments »

For the longest time I would use my PSI DC1B-XL for my dust collection needs, but since I upgraded my jointer from a 6” to an 8” and my planer from my lunchbox to a new 3hp spiral cutter I have been buying my lumber in the rough from a local dealer. When I started to get my lumber this way I quickly realized I needed a bigger dust collector. I have read numerous reviews from this webpage and others about the HF 2hp dust collector so I grabbed my coupon and off I went to get my b...

Popular Woodworking Easy to Build Birdhouses A Natural Approach

Popular Woodworking Easy to Build Birdhouses A Natural Approach

06-18-2012 05:25 PM by Daris | 1 comment »

I love all things BIRD.  There, I said it.  I like birds, birdhouses, bird feeders, bird baths, bird stores, and most of all I enjoy making some of these things.  Surprisingly though, I’ve never bought a project book of just bird houses(although many of the books I have include some plans).  I picked up the book Easy to Build Birdhouses - A Natural Approach: Must Know Info to Attract and Keep the Birds You Want (Popular Woodworking) at Amazon for a really reasonable price.  I have thoro...

Just a quick note to say I am stoked with Worksharp customer service. Just received my WS3000 yesterday ($199 from busybee tools), filled out the online registration and when I got the option to get my free abrasives it said US shipping only and no PO Boxes (I am in rural BC Canada) Called Worksharp cutomer service and after about one minute on the phone they said my abrasives would ship on monday. Excellent customer service! Thanks Worksharp!

Great at first look, but in the long run, not so much

Great at first look, but in the long run, not so much

09-12-2011 03:21 AM by Mike | 7 comments »

So first off let me say that the reason for the rating is due to long term use of the stopper. The stopper use with a turned top is easy to do and assembly is simple too. My reason for the rating is due to the chemical reaction that occurs between the chrome and the wine acid. As you can see by the second image, the chrome is being dissolved into the wine. The way I found this out was that I had a open bottle laying on it’s side in my fridge for a few weeks and I pulled it out to fi...

Jet Parallel Clamp

Jet Parallel Clamp

10-12-2009 12:28 AM by alaskan79 | 9 comments »

I got a pair of 12” clamps last winter and they are really nice. I was using pipe clamps and was having trouble with my glue ups not staying flush. I was getting a lot of cup and would have to clamp some 2 X 2 on each end to stop it from happening. I got these clamps and now I don’t have that problem. About a month ago I got a pair of 31” because the 12” where a little short for some of my glue ups. I really like them also. Really easy to move the movable jaw on the ba...

My first REAL cordless driver!

My first REAL cordless driver!

04-15-2008 04:35 AM by Tess | 6 comments »

Bought this 18V Lithium-Ion Drill-Driver from Home Hardware, refurbished, for $190 CDN. Sound steep? Well, I’ve got to tell you, it’s worth every penny! I used to do home renovations for fun and now I’ve gotten into professional contracting. I’d gone through a few cheapie cordless drills just with the around-the-house use and I was never happy with them. They were never robust enough (any screws over 2” and I wouldn’t have even tried the cordless). ...

Vacuum Clamp System  ( Lee Valley )

Vacuum Clamp System ( Lee Valley )

01-11-2014 11:02 PM by JerrySats | 1 comment »

I’ve been looking for an easy way to hold parts for sanding and spotted the V Clamp made by Vac Clamps . Lee Vallery carries the product . So with the recent free shipping I ordered the double sided clamp system along with the on and off switch . Setting it up is pretty easy , you’ll need at least a small compressor to run it . I did a video and tried to show how well it holds things , but its hard to tell . There’s no trickery I really tired to pull the bond off but can&#...
