Horton Brasses = reputable service

04-17-2009 10:25 PM by Don Newton | 11 comments »

Lumberjocks, Quite often our reviews are for hand tools or machines, and rightly so, but the crowning touch to many furniture building projects is hardware. I am a hobbyist who enjoys building period furniture. The hardware available at Horton Brasses is second to none, whether it is a pair of hinges or a set of Chippendale style pulls for a highboy, and their customer service department is the model that all company’s should aspire to. As a consumer with choices, who’s mone...

Unreliable metal detector --  save your money for a good one!

Unreliable metal detector -- save your money for a good one!

02-29-2008 07:45 PM by Hawgnutz | 5 comments »

This metal detector is reasonably priced at under $20, but you get what you pay for. When I tested this on a known area with metal under the wood (my workbench has screws attaching face to top), the detector failed to detect a #10 screw just under the wood’s surface! This is totally unacceptable. My jointer, planer. or bandsaw blades are too expensive to chance on this unreliable detector. A magnetic stud finder is much more reliable than this! Save your money for the Lumber Wizar...

Joinery Wisdom from 1920!!

Joinery Wisdom from 1920!!

10-18-2011 05:05 PM 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 ...

Bye-bye rust!

Bye-bye rust!

08-11-2010 05:49 PM 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...

Eye Wash Cup

Eye Wash Cup

09-09-2013 11:33 PM by Stephenw | 5 comments »

You should always wear safety glasses. If sawdust or dirt gets in an eye, I’ll reach for a Flents glass eye wash cup. 1. Put some water or eye wash solution in the cup. 2. Hold the cup over the affected eye. 3. While holding the eye open, tilt the head back and wait a couple of seconds for the debris to float loose. 4. Tip the head forward. The water and debris will hopefully drain into the cup. 5. Repeat as needed with clean water or eye wash solution.

Ear protection

Ear protection

Well, after dropping and breaking my cheap Lowes earmuffs, I did a lot of online research and reading reviews and comparing specs, I ended up with these John Deere earmuffs. They are adjustable and extremely comfortable and light and at 27dB do a great job of blocking off most of the harmful loud noise in the shop ( as in my dang pancake compressor) or yard tools.

Sonic Crafter could be better

Sonic Crafter could be better

10-01-2012 04:14 PM by Julian | 11 comments »

I purchased the Rockwell sonic crafter about 2 years ago. I purchased it on-line for about $140. It came with the hard case and various cutting blades and sanding pads. I found that the machine screw that holds the blades can come loose from the vibration. You have to tighten the machine screw with an allen wrench (provided) to the point that I always worry I might strip the threads. After a few uses, my tool stopped working. It was within the warranty period so I called the 800 service...

Bessey H Style pipe clamp

Bessey H Style pipe clamp

03-09-2014 01:19 PM by HarveyM | 14 comments »

I’ve have a recent disappointing experience with Bessey pipe clamps; of the four bought one had a slipping clutch and two others had skewed threading in the head casting. Those two had jaws that wouldn’t align with the feet flat on the table. That’s aside from casting flaws & voids. They came in cardboard boxes, rather than the clear plastic packaging, but from a reputable dealer. I replaced them with Pony 50’s for slightly higher price, but Ponys are head and shoulders above ...

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

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

03-09-2010 11:16 PM by ErikB | 2 comments »

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...
