Vacuum Clamp System  ( Lee Valley )

Vacuum Clamp System ( Lee Valley )

01-11-2014 11:02 PM by JerryS | 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&#...

This saw is discontinued now, replaced by a new model but some stores around me still have a few left on their shelves. I picked mine up for about $360.00, that price for a Bosch slider is pretty good in my books. As with any other miter saw out there dust collection sucks but that is to be expected I guess. It came with a 60 tooth blade that worked great but after its life was up I replaced it with a Freud. The only real problem that this one has is that it is very hard to pull down when you...

Don't Eat this cookie,

I just got a set of these, and I was pretty surprised. I was a little hesitant to shell out $11 bucks for a glorified piece of wood but they work pretty good. They really remind me of a router mat that I bought a few years ago, they have the same type of non slip surface. You could probably make some from those drawer liners or non slip rug liners. But for me as busy as I am I would rather just buy them and keep going then stop and make them. Pretty cool though, I have to admit I will pr...

Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking

If you have been building furniture and other woodworking projects as a hobby and think you have a really good grasp of woodworking, think again. I had been designing my own pieces, building from plans and taking on various projects over the years. My humble workshop contains lots of hand and power tools and budgets being what they are, it may never be a dream shop. But projects do get done, with kudos from family and friends. I was the fortunate recipient of some gift cards to the Wood...

I bought this DVD about a year ago and have found it to be one of the best DVD I have viewed.This was made before Glen went full time with Popular Woodworking.It has over 3 1/2 hours of instruction plus many extras including step by step photos and complete plans.One of my favorite thing about Glen’s DVDs is he shows many ways to do the same procedure.He hand cuts dovetails,cuts them on the bandsaw,and with a jigsaw.Also some very nice finishing information.I used this DVD as the basis ...

My most used measuring device in the shop

My most used measuring device in the shop

I have used this for marking out joinery, as a depth gauge, to check squareness, the list goes on. When I’m in the shop this is always in my pocket. Some may argue about the price but I must say that short of theft or me loosing it somehow I will not have to buy another one ever.

SawStop zero clearance throat plate with changeable inserts

SawStop zero clearance throat plate with changeable inserts

10-04-2014 10:08 AM by Tim_H | 6 comments »

So I finally bit the bullet and purchased a SawStop table saw. After doing so I searched to find a zero clearance plate. Of course SawStop offers zero clearance plates at about $40 ea but I found this one from Infinity Tools that cost $100 but offers changeable inserts that are low cost so I just had to buy one plate and several “inserts” to accommodate the many different blades and angles that I end up using. Purchasing an entire new plate for each blade and each angle of each bl...

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

Artisan Apron in Rust Wax Canvas

11-10-2014 08:09 AM by sepeck | 5 comments »

Just as I was finishing ripping some lumber on my table saw, standing off the side slightly, the cut piece got bumped a bit as I hit the power switch. As the blade spun down the piece slowly rotated into the blade. I knew there was no chance of me moving in time. My t-shirt got ripped and I used quite a few paper towels to clean up the surface wound (not to mention OW!) on my stomach. My wife said she’d get me an apron for my birthday (and evidently REASONS!). Years ago I got to ...
