Sawstop epic fail with UPS in close second

Sawstop epic fail with UPS in close second

03-26-2016 04:59 AM by mummykicks | 18 comments »

So I’d love to offer an detailed review of my new sawstop sliding crosscut table with my brand new pcs, except it appears impossible to get one shipped to my residence intact. The saw I got, no issues, crosscut table, not so much. The first one came in a box that looked like it was dropped of the back of a truck, multiple times and had been run over for good measure. UPS sucks, I thought. Open it up and the corners of the table and the fence were dinged, like you would expect if you ...

Review of "How to Make Wooden Farm Toys" By Kurtis Foote

Review of "How to Make Wooden Farm Toys" By Kurtis Foote

09-27-2012 03:57 AM by grace123 | 3 comments »

I used the plans created by Kurtis Foote to make the combine. The plans are very simple to use. The diagrams are accurate. The instructions are clear. I had no trouble making the combine with two different heads. One is a bean cutter head and the other is a corn chopper head. I highly recommend these plans for anyone desiring to make a set of our farm toys. The skid loader, tractor and disc attachment are realistic

Crap Powered Crap Saw

Crap Powered Crap Saw

02-06-2011 09:39 PM by travisowenfurniture | 25 comments »

I got this for $15, and i over paid. It doesn’t hold onto the blades because they keep falling out no matter how much I tighten the set screws. It doesn’t cut straight. Now, it doesn’t even work. I think I didn’t have it for 6 months when it stopped working. Well, sometimes it works when I slam it against a concrete surface, hard. So if you have one project you need a jigsaw for, but you don’t need super accurate cuts, this would be fine. It’s $20 ...

*Lots* of practical advice on --- wait for it --- building furniture with hand planes.

*Lots* of practical advice on --- wait for it --- building furniture with hand planes.

Like everything else I’ve ever read or seen from Chris Schwarz, this is chock full of practical advice and tricks, combined with a good bit of useful history. This video reviews some of the techniques used in ‘Course Medium and Fine’, but often takes the details a step or 2 deeper. Also, they differ in that this video generally assumes you begin with a board that’s been machine planed, and needs finishing. This video also covers the block plane extensively. Sharp...

Another manly man video

Another manly man video

In this video, Rob covers taking a piece of rough lumber to finished state. The topic covered is similar to Chris Schwarz’s Course, Medium and Fine. One key item that distinguishes this video is Rob’s use of the scrub plane. This is one of the few videos I have seen where this plane is used fairly extensively. Most other folks I have seen use a jack plane for this work…. He spent to me what was an amazing amout of time getting one face flat enough to work. He used ...

Indeed a great tool

Indeed a great tool

03-16-2009 03:11 PM by NetPro | 12 comments »

Given that when available I like USA or German made tools, I researched this tool on the Web and found nothing available. The LION Pootatuck has been dicontinued and it appears all stock depleted. Not even a used one on e-bay. Went ahead and order one from Grizzly and was plesantly surprised by the quality of this tool.It was right on the money for both the 45 and 90 degrees preset on the right and left sides.Not that is hard to calibrate it if you need to, but I have several highly accura...

I don’t have a single new power tool in my shop. I have inherited quite a collection and what I don’t have i like to buy from craigslist / ebay. This means that I do a lot of cleaning up and rust removing. So far I have bought a ridged contractor table saw circa 2000 a delta homecraft jointer circa 1950. As you can Imagine they didn’t run so smooth at first. The table saw had been rusting in an aircraft hanger for a few years and had a light coating of rust on everything....

Bench Cookies from Rockler

Bench Cookies from Rockler

07-27-2009 01:40 AM by handi | 12 comments »

I got the chance to try out Rockler’s new Bench Cookies over the weekend. Bench Cookies are like hockey pucks with rubber faces. They act like a routing mat to keep parts from sliding around as you sand or rout them. The difference is that Bench Cookies lift the part up about 1” off the work surface so that you have clearance for bearing bits or cut throughs. They work surprisingly well, I sanded and routed parts on them with complete confidence. I even covered them in sa...

Pleasantly surprised

Very pleased with this. I get zero dust below the table now, my router runs cooler (as do my bits), and when used with something like the incra master fence I’m dust free when doing anything that has the bit near the fence. Got mine on amazon for $40. There is a plastic sheet that has velcro on it that the cup attaches to. I just cut it out to fit around my lift and double stick taped it to my router plate. Has worked fine.I don’t ever remove my router from the table, so I canR...
