I can see not wanting to work without it in my future

I can see not wanting to work without it in my future

04-05-2016 03:06 AM by ic3ss | 13 comments »

I scratched an old itch a couple of weeks ago and bought a Domino. I’m making a bed frame and this was the perfect project for this tool. Lots of slats and rails, lots of domino joints. It needed a slight calibration out of the box but was pretty easy to do, and has been a real force multiplier in saving me lots of time. I still have a ways to go on it and the domino work is mostly done, but it really has surpassed all of my expectations. It really is simple to use and as accurate you w...

DVD - The Last Word On Sharpening  -  Review

DVD - The Last Word On Sharpening - Review

12-28-2011 01:01 PM by Nazair | 2 comments »

In his opening comments Christopher Schwarz states how confusing the subject of sharpening is to new woodworkers, and that so many different methods, products and options on the market make it worse. This was exactly how I felt. The ninety minutes he spends talking while hands on in this DVD have been a great addition to my other research. I’ve spent many an hour online and browsing different books on this subject. He doesn’t single out any one method, but comments on the good...

Got it as a freebie so I have a hard time complaining, but mine was off by 5/16”. With all the math involved in creating an average piece of furniture….it’s a pain to have to correct for the tape as well. Otherwise decent quality (for inexpensive tapes anyway). Mines relegated to missions to my local wood monger, where precision is not needed. I have since checked multiples at the store, and have yet to find one thats dead on. Oh well it was FREE.

Initial Review - Impression

Initial Review - Impression

02-18-2016 03:06 PM by Kalison | 11 comments »

Hello, Long time lurker and first time poster. I picked up my SawStop Jobsite Saw about a month ago, maybe just a little more than a month ago… so I thought I would share my initial impressions of the saw. I began my tablesaw days with a skil saw jobsite saw… which was the first and worst saw that I have ever bought. I used it enough to finish a simple project or two, and then I put it in the corner. Accuracy, Repeatability and Reliability were all very poor… but,...

Easywoodtools faceplate

Easywoodtools faceplate

05-09-2011 06:05 PM by hairy | 4 comments »

This deserves more than 5 stars. High quality at a good price. Item F625 I got myself in a situation where I needed 2 faceplates at the same time. The other in the second picture is made by Don Pencil, another very good one. I looked around the web and decided on this one. Woodcraft had it at the exact same price that easywoodtools did, so I cut out the middleman. It was on my front porch almost 24 hours after I ordered it. It came from Lexington, Ky. That’s about a 2 hour driv...

Howdy, The kids and I just finished an awesome time at Disney world. Tomorrow morning begins the long return trip. I can’t wait to get home. I have 6 beautiful boards in the van. I just want to start staring at them and dreaming. Today I met a true woodworking master and conservationist. Mr Bob Hughes is keeping old fallen, dead standing and cleared trees out of the landfills. Bob mills the trees on his property and sells them at very low prices. Bob is working on a beautiful ...

Although I think a lot of Kregs products are exspensive they are extremely well made and they are made for the beginner in mind. I purchased this jig because I wanted to put shelf pin holes in an existing cabinet and it worked awesome, I especially like the simplicity of the jig. The Shelf Pin Jig also includes a dual-position, adjustable fence for custom hole placement, a locating pin for quick and accurate spacing reference, a jig extender that lets you connect multiple Shelf Pin Jigs...

Absolutely the Most Useful, Inexpensive Marking Tool...

02-06-2014 04:37 PM by DeLayne Peck | 14 comments »

What is it? Ordinary old sticks of school chalk. I use it constantly all over my shop and on project-after-project. Chalk cuts down the chaos, bungling, confusion, memory lapses, searching, waste and mistakes that haunt every shop. My shop for sure. Here are some of my routine uses: Noting the arrival dates of lumber for drying and acclimation. Planning and marking the intended use of and dimensions of new lumber. Laying out initial cuts and dimensions on sheet goods. Noting dimensi...

Great Bandsaw Blade

Great Bandsaw Blade

01-05-2013 05:05 AM by NormG | 8 comments »

After Reading MBS’ review I ordered the same blade. It arrived today while I was at work. Very well packaged and in good shape. After dinner, I went out to the shop and installed on my newer Craftsman 12” 89 1/2” blade (Similar to the Rikon). It is a great saw. After about 15 minutes of setup it was ready to go. Blade is noticeably quieter than the Timber Wolf blades I have been using. I followed the instructions and used a slower rate to break the blade in. The I ...

Great Value

Great Value

I picked up this digital caliper for around $30 at a local Rockler. So far I couldn’t be happier. I compared it to a $100+ Mitutoyo at work and they were within a half a thousandth at full scale (5-6 inches). It also has a larger battery, so I’m hoping that it will last longer than the smaller watch battery types. Whats in the box: 6” digital caliper, case, 2 batteries (one installed, one spare). http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=24524
