All in all I like their new product, it saves time and material, and clean up couldn’t be easier. for more information I wrote a longer review on my blog @ http://sleepydogwoodworking.blogspot.com/ I only wish they add more colors and maybe a line of indoor stain to the line. Joey

powerful and heavy duty

powerful and heavy duty

08-07-2009 01:42 AM by jake | 10 comments »

This tool is heavy duty in every aspect. It cuts hardwoods like butter. I like the basic nature of the tool, no lasers etc. They often obscure the sight line by getting in the way, and I would rather clearly see myself than rely on a laser. It base plate is aluminum, but is heavy enough it doesnt flex and I’m sure it helps keep the weight down. The adjustments are straight foreward and are easily operated. The motor sounds smooth in it’s wind up and use. The cord is nice and long,...

Not perfect, but FAR better than the 3M rubber block!

Not perfect, but FAR better than the 3M rubber block!

04-20-2012 02:12 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

A little disclaimer here. I hate sanding, anything that slows the process down, or fails in the process that I do not want to be doing in the first place earns instant hatred from me, which was what got me looking for a new sanding block in the first place. I started out with a 3M rubber sanding block which is basically the same design as this Norton, just different materials. And it’s the choice in materials that makes all the difference in the world. Simply put, the Norton is a nic...

Woodworker's Edge "Techniques" DVD's Cabriole Leg

Last fall I went to visit Chuck Bender's shop and to meet Glen Huey Glen is the Senior Editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine. Glen was teaching a class on a Tea Table that belinged to his mother and had been in his home for as long as he could remember. The plans have been published in Popular Woodworking Magazine. This review has nothing to do with the table. It’s just a lead in to me meeting Glen. A great guy and of course Chuck is also. While I was there chatting with Glen...

Wixie for The Griz

Wixie for The Griz

04-10-2010 12:00 AM by longgone | 1 comment »

I recently bought a wixey digital/fractional readout for my big old floor model planer. These are supposed to be for a desktop planer but I have seen others adapt them to fit a floor model planer. I have several other wixey products and have been quite happy with them so I decided to make one adaptable to my Grizzly 15” planer. I used a 2” wide piece of aluminum flat bar and a piece of 1 1/2” aluminum angle iron… and after a little trial and error of lining up the l...

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...

Great lumber in Southern California

Great lumber in Southern California

02-07-2013 06:09 PM by david_larch | 7 comments »

I don’t remember how I heard of this place, but having exhausted my search for decent Walnut in San Diego I decided to try something different. These guys are located in the Brea / Anaheim area so it was about an hour drive for me. I called up first and spoke with a sales rep – Steven – who informed me that their stock was great with extra wide boards. One thing that is different than what many are used to is that you don’t pick your lumber. You tell them what yo...

Charles Neil Finishing Workshop

Charles Neil Finishing Workshop

04-27-2013 10:32 PM by zzzzdoc | 12 comments »

I just got back home from attending Charles Neil’s Finishing workshop at his shop in New Market, Virginia (which may not be the end of the Earth, but you can see it from there. ;) The workshop was three days, giving him an opportunity to lecture us on many topics, and more importantly gave us plenty of hands-on time to spray finishes, screw up, and more importantly learn from our mistakes how to do it correctly. Charles suggested that we each bring our own guns and turbines, which ...

A Solid General Purpose Workhorse At An Affordable Price

A Solid General Purpose Workhorse At An Affordable Price

11-24-2009 10:45 AM by knotscott | 7 comments »

This is a very good blade at a fair price (~ $42). Freud’s Industrial series (denoted by an “L” in the prefix) offers a step up from their entry level Diablo and former TK/Avanti series. The larger teeth are C4 micrograin carbide and are very sharp. They feature an alternating top bevel grind (ATB) and a fairly steep 15 degree hook angle that helps it rip reasonably well. The blade has anti-vibration slots and a Permashield coating. I bought the LU86 as a back up to my Fo...
