Forging A Custom Hinge with Peter Ross DVD from Popular Woodworking Blacksmith F+W Media

03-18-2014 09:55 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 1 comment »

Mr. Ross’ style is perfect for me, calm, peaceful, he even makes hammering metal feel and sound good on video. He aptly demonstrates how to make a forged iron (might have been steel) hinge out of sheet metal, using basic hand tools, a heat forge and anvil, all of which I have already. My goals for buying this video were to learn the process and apply the concept to making hammered copper hinges for a project in the Charles Rohlfs style, which always had exceptionally made hammered- ...

Crick Levels, Up For Review

Crick Levels, Up For Review

04-17-2015 06:30 PM by woodshopmike | 6 comments »

I recently reviewed a few levels made by Crick and I’ve got to say I’m rather impressed. The full review of these levels is on my blog: Crick Levels, Up For Review. Here are the highlights though All wood body Stainless steel binding & end caps Accurate to .015” over length of level (that’s ~ .02° for a 40” level!) Curved sight tubes, these move slower than straight tubes which makes them easier to read I know it’s short and sweet, b...

Excellente moulder

Excellente moulder

05-12-2015 02:51 AM by Severiano | 2 comments »

2 months ago, i got my hands in this moulder. i had been looking at it for some time. I’ve looked at W&H and Hollytek moulders as well. it wasn’t untill the sales rep of Logosol Canada gave me a live show of this machine, that made me go for it. it is accurate and it is easy to figure it out ( Shaper user knowledge prerequisite ). i’ve bought mouldings in the past made with multi head big industrial machines, and I’m doing my own mouldings now with the same qualit...

I can see not wanting to work without it in my future

I can see not wanting to work without it in my future

04-05-2016 03:06 AM by ic3ss | 13 comments »

I scratched an old itch a couple of weeks ago and bought a Domino. I’m making a bed frame and this was the perfect project for this tool. Lots of slats and rails, lots of domino joints. It needed a slight calibration out of the box but was pretty easy to do, and has been a real force multiplier in saving me lots of time. I still have a ways to go on it and the domino work is mostly done, but it really has surpassed all of my expectations. It really is simple to use and as accurate you w...

A must have for my shop

A must have for my shop

10-17-2010 05:14 AM by Chris | 7 comments »

This was a birthday present this year; I have only just been able to get some shop time with it. I am in the middle of a bookcase build and found this to be invaluable removing the whisper thin bit of wood needed to make the shelves fit just right or to clean up the home made moldings to complete the top of the case. Ease of Use:If you have used other planes you will find this plane to be straight forward and intuitive. Adjustments: The mouth is adjusted by loosening the locking screw...

Must Read for the Galoot in all of us

Must Read for the Galoot in all of us

12-01-2009 05:28 AM by WayneC | 6 comments »

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 ...

Ease of use

Ease of use

10-05-2010 05:33 AM by Dave | 25 comments »

I have been needing another method of sharpening other than by hand. I have been using a 3 and 6 inch grinder for shaping, and Arkansas stone’s for fine tuning. For plane blades, a large piece of glass with assorted grits of wet or dry sandpaper. I have made some jigs for the grinders to get somewhat of a hollow bevel started. And have had some reasonable success with the bevel. As long as I was not dealing with 2 inches or larger. But the stones and my inconsistency of sharpening have ...

Another full face shield

Another full face shield

07-19-2010 02:34 PM by Don Butler | 8 comments »

Greg the Whodat just posted his new face shield.I didn’t want to hijack his review, so I’m posting my own. Greg’s shield is a good one and the Triton PRA001 is probably more expensive. But I wanted to explain some of its advantages. Triton saw good to include earmuffs and they’re good one. They can be locked out away from the head for when you want to hear something and when putting the headgear on and off.There is no option for front or back battery location. It...

Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

Amana bits are great, the need for this set is not

06-01-2010 12:59 AM by rhett | 8 comments »

This is a fine set of bits. The quality, workmanship and finish of all my Amana bits has been flawless. Therefore this is not a bad mark about Amana router bits, they are the best you can buy in my opinion. This is however a review of the actual need to have a set of bits like these. I bought this set due to the fact that I have a kitchen on the floor with seven 45 degree corners. Building faceframe cabinets, this equates to 28 faceframe stiles needing a 22.5 degree angle. I assumed t...
