They suck

They suck

430 days ago by Rick M. | 37 comments »

Not very descriptive title but accurate. Around Christmas I bought a bag of these for $5 and feel I was ripped off. I didn’t even open the bag until a month ago and three have gone in the trash. One was clamped to a wood extension on my miter gauge, came apart and flew into the blade, no damage except to my wits. Another was clamping my drill press fence and suddenly exploded, again my wits took a beating. On another, the spring just broke through the handle. Quite a few more feel like ...

Bye-bye rust!

Bye-bye rust!

1432 days ago by Bret | 10 comments »

I’m generally skeptical of products that purport to take the place of elbow grease, but I got this bottle of Rust Off in a package at Woodcraft with some Boeshield and blade & bit cleaner. Last night, I realized that I had to put my smoker up for sale before we pack out (in two weeks) and so I needed to de-rust it. I stood there for a while, wire brush in hand and Dremel tool nearby when I remembered that I had this stuff. The instructions say to spray it on rust, allow it to s...

Single handed clamp

Single handed clamp

1941 days ago by Tony | 4 comments »

I recently purchased two of these clamps – see my blog http://lumberjocks.com/topics/5240. These clamps are available in 300 mm (12”), 450mm (18”) and 650mm (25½”) with a 80mm (3”) jaw length. I found the clamps to be more than adequate for light clamping or spreading, the action takes a little getting used to, I am more used to the conventional pistol grip versions. The clamp/spread change over, is just a turn of a switch, no mechanical changes or swapping end a...

Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking

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...

Wooden Spinner Swivel

Wooden Spinner Swivel

68 days ago by ca8920 | 2 comments »

A few weeks back I made some wooden spinners and posted pictures of the spinners as a project. After posting pictures of the spinners I received several questions about the types of swivels I used. After testing several types of swivels I decided the sealed ball bearing swivels were the best and didn’t gunk up or break down. Below is a Cabela’s like to the Sampo type swivels I ended up using. They spin very easily due to the internal ball bearing. Chris http://www.cabela...

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

Baileign Jointer/Planer Review

21 days ago by retfr8flyr | 7 comments »

I have had my Baileigh Industrial JP-1250 for about 8 months now and I think I have used it enough to give a credible review. Baileigh has been around in the metal machine business for years but just started getting into woodworking machines. I did a lot of research before I pulled the trigger on this machine and decided, at the price it was selling for, I couldn’t pass it up. The machine arrived in great shape with excellent packaging. It comes with 4 heavy casters but they don̵...

Joinery Wisdom from 1920!!

Joinery Wisdom from 1920!!

999 days ago by MsDebbieP | 8 comments »

This book review is from the October 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag Gary Roberts (Toolemera.com) is donating a book for a free draw! (See below for details) Woodwork Joints by William Fairham 1920 1920, you say? Yes, oh yes. I have a wee bit of an addiction to books and to have in my hands wisdom that was written almost a century ago is better than having some Swiss chocolate for a treat. The sub-title of the book found on the inside pages does a great job of describing the ...

What to do except buying somewhere else ?

What to do except buying somewhere else ?

956 days ago by Johnny Boy | 6 comments »

For the last 4 years I have tried to do business with Busybee Tools. As many of us, I was impressed by the unbeatable price. Unfortunately, every single order I have placed was a nightmare. Defective dust collector, items not as described, items not available, orders not shipped after several months, missing parts. I have never received a full order without having to complain about it.3 days ago, after 29 days, I have received an email to let me know the item I was waiting for (a 38” st...

Not their latest, but worthy of consideration if on a budget

Not their latest, but worthy of consideration if on a budget

I’ve owned this router for two or three years and I’ve been very happy with its performance. The controls are easy to use, offers ample power, and there are several accessories available should you need additional features (template guides, straight edge guide, etc.) Plunging the router is simple, and the depth gauge is awesome. The variable speed motor runs well and offers soft start after you pull the trigger (in other words, it goes from zero to 100 gradually, not zero to...
