Great Jig and Even Better Customer Service - Amazing - pls read

06-09-2015 03:30 PM by glen | 2 comments »

I bought the F3 template to go with my D4R dovetail jig as I was going to have a lot of box joints to build and I thought this would be the quickest way to go, rather than setting up a tablesaw jig, etc, especially since I already owned the D4R. I set everything up according to the manual, and went to go cut my first test board. Next thing I knew, the guide bushing had rattled free and was destroyed by my 1/2” spiral bit. Hmmm – I guess I didn’t tighten it enough. I or...

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...

A really nice saw and great value,  good way to get into pull saws

A really nice saw and great value, good way to get into pull saws

01-22-2014 04:30 PM by Mainiac Matt | 10 comments »

After watching with great interest the enthusiasm out there for Japanese pull saws I decided I’d like to try one. But I was quickly overwhelmed by the variety, terminology and prices. The Shark saws looked interesting, but I was turned off by the plastic handles and thought they would be a disappointment….... boy was I wrong. When given an Amazon gift card back in 2012, I saw I had two Shark saws in my wish list and came back to the idea. For the low price, I figured I co...

Cheapest no-tip track upgrade I can find

Cheapest no-tip track upgrade I can find

05-15-2015 02:35 PM by paxorion | 7 comments »

Ever since the IWF 2014, I have been dying to pick up the new BORA guide systems. After months of hunting and phone calls to BORA, I finally managed to get my hands on the BORA saw plate. The short story is…it’s awesome. Paired with the BORA WTX, this answers the mail on a track system upgrade for my Porter Cable PC15TCSMK. The Good: Works as advertised. The saw guide is (supposedly) compatible with any straight edge guide in the market. I’ve tested it with both t...

Renovate Wood & Transitional Planes Video

Renovate Wood & Transitional Planes Video

04-17-2014 03:08 PM by Vincent Nocito | 0 comments »

I picked up the video at the Woodworking Show after Bob completed his seminar. The video is about 80 minutes long and goes through the steps needed to bring wood bodied and transitional planes back to life. Topics include, rust removal, Japanning, flattening, tuning and building a complete replacement body. There are additional PDF files on the disk that have templates for making throat patches, totes, and new wood bodies. This DVD is a good resource for anyone starting out restoring wood...

1/4" Angle Die Grinder

1/4" Angle Die Grinder

08-03-2011 05:54 AM by Raymond | 1 comment »

Another good Harbor Freight find in my opinion was this little angle grinder. 1/4” 20000 RPM 3 CFM @ 90 PSI. The 1/8 collet from the other die grinder I purshased the last time I was at Harbor Freight fits this grinder. Pleanty of power, and does not bog down under a load. Like most HF air tools this one did not come with the fitting. I really wish they would include them. This is great for getting into hard to reach spaces. And it was on sale 14.99. Can’t go wrong. Like most of H...

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

Permatex Painter's Clean Hand Cleaner with Pumice

08-08-2011 09:49 AM by David Grimes | 8 comments »

Like most of us, I get into different stuff that requires a bit more than soap and water to get off my hands and forearms. For as long as I can remember I’ve used the gojo, orange cleaner with pumice, mineral spirits, sometimes acetone, even gasoline to get the various stains, finishes and glues off. A couple of weeks ago, I was in the local Sherwin Williams paint store and saw this product for $3.49. I asked the manager if it was good stuff. He laughed and said that he couldnR...

Does the job

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..

Finishing, It's not over till it's over by Marc Spagnuolo.

Received my copy of the new WoodWhisperer book, Finishing, It ain't over till it's over... by Marc Spagnuolo.. A no nonsense approach to a very important part of any project… the finishing… Marc takes a subject many of us cringe about and shows us, in his inimitable style, how to make the most of various finishing techniques… from the initial preparation to the final buff… This book does not bog us down with technical jargon and formulas but gives us a c...

 Turning Basics with Steve Shanesy - DVD Review

Turning Basics with Steve Shanesy - DVD Review

07-06-2009 08:11 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 8 comments »

This week I was excited to receive a complimentary copy of “Turning Basics for Furniture Makers” from Popular Woodworking. With my shop currently out of commission, a woodworking DVD really hits the spot! Now most of you know I consider myself a utilitarian turner, meaning, I usually only turn when a project calls for it. So when I watch a typical turning DVD, my attention usually starts to drift pretty quickly. Most of these titles are produced by amazingly talented wood turn...
