Does the job

12-30-2010 02:04 AM by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

I received one of these for Christmas and as simple as it is it does the trick. I installed it where they suggested, drilling a small pilot hole first then screwing it into the blade guide. It does a good job cleaning the tire and seems to be well made and should last a long time. i really like Carter band saw accessories. I give it 5 stars..

Woodworking Skills from the 1800's

Woodworking Skills from the 1800's

11-16-2011 12:01 PM by MsDebbieP | 16 comments »

This book review is from the November 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Toolemera is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)The Art and Craft of Cabinet Making by D. Denning This is another of the historic books, this one being written in 1891. This book doesn’t hold as much appeal to me due to it being a lot of words and fewer diagrams. But—some of the headings listed in the contents had me turning the pages to take a look. For example, don’t ...

Woodpeckers TS-6  T-Square

Woodpeckers TS-6 T-Square

09-28-2014 04:08 PM by timbertailor | 2 comments »

I recently did a review of the” Woodpecker’s 6” Carpenter’s Square” and I use it a great deal. But, when I need to do more detailed work, the precision of the TS-6 is a welcome addition to anyone’s measurement and layout arsenal. It is 6” long, as the name implies and is just the right size for most small jobs like mortis, tenons, hole layout, jointery, hinge and drawer layout, inlays, etc. The ruler has 1/32” micro holes for use with a me...

Annoying Telemarketing calls when you don't renew

Annoying Telemarketing calls when you don't renew

04-19-2012 01:49 PM by brtech | 16 comments »

I subscribed to a bunch of woodworking magazines a while ago, trying to decide which ones were worth keeping. WWJ is okay, but not a keeper. So I didn’t renew. I now get telemarketing calls from Dial America trying to get me to renew. Saying “I don’t want it” is not enough. You have to demand they take you off their list. Because you have a business relationship with WWJ if you subscribed, “Do Not Call” does not apply. I suggest you don’t sub...

Ridgid Mobile Miter Saw Stand AC9945, Up For Review

Ridgid Mobile Miter Saw Stand AC9945, Up For Review

12-18-2014 08:10 PM by woodshopmike | 2 comments »

This stand is really great. It’s easy to use, easy to move, and doesn’t rock or move while using the saw. Check out the video of loading and unloading the saw and stand from a pickup. No, it’s not light and if you’re slap outta shape you won’t be able to do this, but for me it sure beats heaving a full size chop saw in and out of a truck bed. The video pretty much hits the big stuff about the stand, but if you wanna read a bit more check out my blog post ...

Great Bandsaw Blade

Great Bandsaw Blade

01-05-2013 05:05 AM by NormG | 8 comments »

After Reading MBS’ review I ordered the same blade. It arrived today while I was at work. Very well packaged and in good shape. After dinner, I went out to the shop and installed on my newer Craftsman 12” 89 1/2” blade (Similar to the Rikon). It is a great saw. After about 15 minutes of setup it was ready to go. Blade is noticeably quieter than the Timber Wolf blades I have been using. I followed the instructions and used a slower rate to break the blade in. The I ...

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...

You may never need these...

09-21-2013 08:37 PM by Routerisstillmyname | 7 comments »

But when there’s a need for ultra deep jaw clamps 12 inches nothing else will work.So, I put off buying these for a long time and sure enough I have a job at hand that needs these. @ 10 a piece you cant beat the price and quality.you could take the pin out and replace it with a handle but I see no need to that.

From Stephen Shepherd, the definitive book on tradtional finishes

From Stephen Shepherd, the definitive book on tradtional finishes

09-09-2011 04:10 AM by Gary Roberts | 5 comments »

Full disclosure: Although we have never met face to face, I consider Stephen to be a friend. Even though he lives in Utah. Which is not to say that living in Utah is a bad thing, it’s just to say that living in Utah is more than a 30 minute drive from Boston. Underneath the anachronistic re-enactor exterior by which Stephen leads his life is a razor sharp intellect and one of the most information packed minds I know. I won’t expose his professional background to public view. I ...

Great DVD's  - Especially for those just starting out.

Great DVD's - Especially for those just starting out.

02-19-2009 01:16 AM by GaryK | 7 comments »

As one of the prizes for the Winter 2009 contest I received a pair of DVD sets fromPassion for Wood. I wanted to give them a quick review. For those just starting out, the DVD set on Jointer and Planer Secrets would be of great value.The jointer can be a tricky tool to master and Hendrik goes into great detail on the subject. You can save a lot of money buying rough lumber and this DVD will show you how to makeusable wood from it. All in all a great 4 1/2 hour, 2 DVD set. T...
