Why did I wait so long?

Why did I wait so long?

10-09-2011 02:37 PM by JohnGreco | 3 comments »

I order all of my pen supplies from Penn State and kept seeing this on their site. I don’t do a whole lot of acrylic work, but when I read reviews on their site saying it worked just as well on a CA finished pen as a final buff, I figured it was worth a try. The directions on the bottle say to sand to 400-600 grit. Wanting to err on the side of caution I went to 600 grit (as opposed to the normal 12,000 I typically use on acrylics) and turned off the lathe. My sanding marks at this p...

Precission triangle in use.

After my first impressions post which many of you confused with my over all judging of the tool I could wait and more. I grabbed some Walnut and started to make a box. I deiced to not do anything elaborate and use no layout tools but my pencil a 2ft ruler and this little guy.First off I used the triangle to set my saw blade. I put it up on the table and cranked my blade into 45 degrees up againest the triangle. I then put on a digital angle reader and it was dead at 45.I then cut all my parts...

Perfect for whacking things with sandpaper

Perfect for whacking things with sandpaper

02-09-2010 05:46 PM by Wiley | 6 comments »

I bought this sander several years before I got into woodworking, when I didn’t know better. I finally replaced it yesterday, and can’t even ethically put it on craigslist. Hopefully enough googling will reveal the proper incantation to banish it back to the depths of hell from whence it came. The main problem is that it does not, as sanders generally do, vibrate from side to side. Instead, it vibrates in all dimensions equally. This has three main effects: first, it very quickly ...

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck

08-03-2011 06:06 AM by Raymond | 3 comments »

My last find from my recient trip to Harbor Freight was this Air Sander with Jacobs chuck. 18000 RPM 4 CFM @ 90 PSI. come with 3 backing plates 3” 4” and 5.5” and a 3/8 jacobs chuck. Tons of power, it was missing one of the wrenchs but Harbor Freight customer service sent one right out. One reviewer on HF’s site commented that the sholder on the nut that holds the backing plate and sand paper on is very shallow I have to agree and infact turned a new one on my metal la...

A thumbs down all the way on this unit.

A thumbs down all the way on this unit.

04-10-2013 05:49 PM by Blackie_ | 26 comments »

I’ve had this unit going on 8 months now and have had nothing but issues from day one with this unit, for starters the table is not true 90% to the drum, I’ve had to fight the nut turning on the threads from day one and today the drum stem threads finally stripped out, it’s been nothing but frustration and definitely not worth the $250.00 purchase, you’d be better off on buying the HF brand at a lower coast or buying a well known name brand like Delta, Grizzly and or ...

Foredom TH 1/3 hp flex shaft tool?

Foredom TH 1/3 hp flex shaft tool?

11-28-2013 02:08 AM by PatrickB | 5 comments »

I love this tool. I use it quit a bit for a variety of odd jobs but mostly for sanding and some filing. Right out of the box I was impressed, the motor feels substantial in my hand, beefy even. Everything was well packaged and no damage evident. I also purchased the right angle grinder kit at the same time. I have some sanding drums for it too. I do not have a hanger for this but I would highly recommend getting the hanger although it’s not an absolute. I set on my bench top sometimes ...

A must have tool

A must have tool

02-12-2011 07:07 PM by steliart | 8 comments »

A very handy and true square. The locking mechanism could be of a better quality as the ruler slides with a bit difficulty on it and locks not so easily the spring lock mechanism is not so good. Other than that is a must have tool. Due to its locking problem and besides that is a great tool I will give it only 3 stars. Axminster’s Description: This is a gem of a square, nicely made and very versatile. With a stock length of 62mm (2.1/2”) and a blade length of 100mm (4”) it is j...

I got my copy of Grandpa’s Workshop by Maurice Pommier in the mail a week or two ago and I immediately sat down to check it out. Every book I’ve gotten from Lost Art Press has been of the highest quality and this book was no exception. First the cover. The images are bright and inviting while still being robust. The pages are nice and thick with excellent printing. Each image is not only fun to look at but informative. I could spend hours just staring at the pictures of tools. The...

Ear protection

Ear protection

03-03-2010 03:17 AM by Routerisstillmyname | 4 comments »

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.

I had to spray some General Finshes Enduro-Var water base poly. Not really poly as it is water based. After thining with about 15 percent water and a couple healthy squirts of General Finishes dry time extender I got the results I needed. A smooth flat top coat. After drying I used Micro-mesh sanding pads. 1500 to 12000 grit.I still need to get some 1 micron polish from Micro-mesh to get that extra eye popping mirror like finish.29 gal Harbor Freight commpressor 7.3 cfm at 40 psi and 5.9 at 9...
