Cheap Construction Compared to Other Jigs

Cheap Construction Compared to Other Jigs

06-01-2015 04:23 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

I added the Leigh Super jig to my collection of dovetail jigs, which already included a P.C. 4210, and an Akeda DC-16. So based on my past experiences with dovetail jigs, these are the models I will be comparing the super jig to. My first impression was that the jig was very lightweight. This may be a good thing with some tools, but I would rather a large jig like this have some heft to it. The side caps are plastic, which on its own isn’t a bad thing, but the manner in which you at...

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

Not Heavy Duty Enough for Reclaiming Hardwoods

07-23-2009 03:32 PM by PurpLev | 11 comments »

I ordered this to tackle the nail pulling process I encountered while reclaiming some Bowling alley floors. As I mentioned in a comment on my blog, I usually am not inclined to order anything online that I have not been able to experience first hand. but since I was desperate, and it just so happened that this product was mentioned a couple of times here and there just when I was looking for nail pulling devices, I figured I’d take the plunge and go for it – a little out of the us...

Originally happy with purchase; unit died after 18 months.

I live in humid western Oregon, and my shop has been pretty sealed off for most of the winter. I also obtained a load of green western red cedar at the start of winter which is stickered for drying. These two facts together led me to feel that a dehumidifier might be a good investment for my shop. After researching reviews on the different models out there, I decided on the rectangular 45 pint model by Soleusair. I chose this one because of a number of features: Timer mode, to shut i...

3 styles of folding sawhorse

3 styles of folding sawhorse

08-29-2014 03:24 AM by Loren | 8 comments »

I get sent products to review sometimes. I’m an amazon vine reviewer. If you review a lot of stuff they’ll probably invite you to be one too. I reviewed a lot of books to start with. I haven’t reviewed many books lately due to the time required to read them. Once in awhile something I can really use becomes available. Here’s my comments on the Portamate folding sawhorses (about $100 a pair) compared to other styles (about $60 a pair) I use as well.

I don’t sell any of my creations, but there’s lot of Lumberjocks here that are trying the best they can to market their creations. So here’s a new place you can advertise. Why don’t you check out Woodshoppers This site was created by one of our members, Krum, & her son Paul. I recently had success selling my Ryobi powercarver on this site. I had advertised it on craigslist for a long time, with no results. I think it’s worth a try to s...

Mechanical Drafting Pencil: 2.0 mm

Mechanical Drafting Pencil: 2.0 mm

12-14-2014 10:47 PM by TravisH | 4 comments »

I have mainly used whatever pencils left over from the kid’s school supplies but have wanted to try out a mechanical drafting pencil (2.0 mm) but most I have come across were sort of costly and/or also needed to be shipped. I came across this pencil while doing my normal sweep at the store. It was under 5 bucks so put it cheaper than anything else I have come across. I liked the fact it was hexagonal to avoid rolling off the work bench as the clip will be removed (as I find them a...

FINISHING NIGHTMARES/AVOIDING & FIXING

03-22-2012 03:28 AM by a1Jim | 12 comments »

I just finished watching the two disc DVD set by Charles Neil . I own almost all of Charles DVD sets and thought having viewed Charles finishing A-Z beyond the books, a ten disc set ,full of great finishing info, that there would not be that much new for me to learn ,but as usual just when I think I have picked up all the know information Charles has to offer he brings all new ideas and details to light. Of course there was some review of how finishing works but there were also things not tou...

Some Knife!

Some Knife!

08-10-2012 03:01 AM by mpounders | 3 comments »

I really didn’t need another knife, but I have wondered how I might like a scimitar shape blade and I have admired the knives that Brandant Robinson makes. I was on his website and happened to see he had one of his catapiller style knives available, so I decided to order it while my wife was agreeable! This was on Saturday, a little before noon. I had recieved an email from Brandant confirming my order and saying it had been shipped in less than 2 hours! On a Saturday no less! He had h...

Only $60 but that was $60 down the drain.

Only $60 but that was $60 down the drain.

05-23-2009 04:13 AM by TNBodger | 21 comments »

It’s cheap (cheap as in poorly made and from bad materials). It took me an hour of adjusting and more adjusting to get an ALMOST decent half blind dovetail out of this piece of _! Clamping the pieces in place is time consuming and requires way too many turns to hold the wood securely in place (which also means way too many turns to release the piece after routing it). Also, the screws that hold the template in place is positioned in a way that will prevent clamping thinner pieces of ...

Iron Dog Tape Clip with 3 Pockets

Iron Dog Tape Clip with 3 Pockets

10-05-2011 04:50 AM by TexAus | 1 comment »

I thought I’d post some pics of a little pouch that I love. It is just the right size to hold my tape measure, utility knife, pencils, etc. It has a nice clip on the back so you can easily clip it to your belt or pants. It is very light, has excellent build quality, and looks pretty cool to boot. And the price is not bad either. http://www.shop.irondogtoolgear.com/Tape-Clip-with-3-Pockets-70016.htm
