Shaper Story

Shaper Story

205 days ago by soapmaker | 9 comments »

To review my story so far, I acquired an older grizzly shaper with only the 1/2 inch spindle. I ordered the other two. When I installed them they both had runout like a bent drill bit. I I initially thought the spindle cartridge may have some sort of issue after I installed the first set of spindles. I borrowed a spindle off of my work shaper and it lined up good with a runout of .004” So I took the first set of spindles and checked them on my work machine where they still didn’t improve. So...

Bessey Band clamp

Bessey Band clamp

573 days ago by AJswoodshop | 7 comments »

When you making 45 degree miters you can’t clamp it together using regular clamps. This is when a Band Clamp comes in handy. This bessey band clamp will allow you to clamp together 45 degree miters and keep the entire frame perfectly square. The corner clamp get hooked on to a belt, which clamps the frame together. When you need it, it’s the only thing that will do the job!

Put them on your short list

Put them on your short list

2011 days ago by Zuki | 1 comment »

This is a review of Chipping Away – http://www.chippingaway.com/ From their site: Chipping Away began operation in 1992 when Pop (Dennis Moor) took an early retirement and decided to keep a few cans of beans in the cupboard by means of selling his carvings. He soon found himself being asked to teach chip carving as well as present seminars at some of the local wood shows. Rogers Public Television asked him to do a television series of 45 individual shows in which he appeared as H...

Rockler Table Saw Fence Micro Adjuster

Rockler Table Saw Fence Micro Adjuster

584 days ago by mbs | 8 comments »

I purchased this adjuster to make very fine adjustments on my sawstop table saw. The base is magnetic and the magnets are pretty strong. I’ve modified my review since I took another look at the device. This unit doesn’t work properly on my Sawstop because it needs to sit directly where the scale indicator sits. I looked at Rockler’s website and some people have made extensions to compensate for the interference. I’m not sure if I want to mess with it or not. ...

Tormek DBS-22 drill sharpening attachment

Tormek DBS-22 drill sharpening attachment

129 days ago by Dan Krager | 6 comments »

I’ve had a problem with blowout when drilling wood. It didn’t seem to matter what point was on the twist drill, or how sharp it was, it pulled up small splinters when entering and no matter how slow the feed or how good the back up was, there was blowout on the back. I had invested in several sets of bits including some pricey brad points with spurs from Germany, but the problem persisted in one form or another. It was especially bad if I got in a hurry and didn’t take sp...

PSI Strata Blank Impulse Buy

PSI Strata Blank Impulse Buy

2034 days ago by dmann | 5 comments »

On impulse I added a couple of Strata Bowl blanks to my last pen order from PSI. This entry is part project and part review. I included before/after pictures for comparison. Looking at the blanks when I got them I was a little wary of putting them on the lathe. There seemed to be a lot of dry joints. I picked a blank out today and used the bandsaw to rough out a circle. After cutting off the rough outside edges the integrity of the blank looked better and I decided to give a go at turning ...

A book with something for everyone

A book with something for everyone

1688 days ago by WayneC | 3 comments »

I came across this book on a trip to Singapore two years ago and read it from cover to cover on the 17 hour return flight to the US. This book provides a very comprehensive overview of hand tools you would find in the shop and provides basic information on their use. I belive much of the information in this book has been lost with the advent of power tools. The books covers drills, planes, saws, and spokeshaves as you would expect in a hand tool book. What surprised me is that he cover...

Robo Reel Long Overdue Rated A+++

424 days ago by Bertha | 8 comments »

This review is long overdue, which is a good thing. I wanted a long courtship. I don’t know if this thing has exploded into the World’s greatest invention or not; I’ve been out of it a bit. .See blog first at:http://lumberjocks.com/Bertha/blog/31229.OK, this thing seems expensive, that’s the first response. My experience with the unit warrants the price..Whether than go through the pros/cons, I’ll just stream-of-consciousness my experience with it..I installed it...

Bessey H Style pipe clamp

Bessey H Style pipe clamp

135 days ago by HarveyM | 14 comments »

I’ve have a recent disappointing experience with Bessey pipe clamps; of the four bought one had a slipping clutch and two others had skewed threading in the head casting. Those two had jaws that wouldn’t align with the feet flat on the table. That’s aside from casting flaws & voids. They came in cardboard boxes, rather than the clear plastic packaging, but from a reputable dealer. I replaced them with Pony 50’s for slightly higher price, but Ponys are head and shoulders above ...

Sometimes, Smaller is Better!

Sometimes, Smaller is Better!

2335 days ago by Hawgnutz | 4 comments »

I don’t cut crown molding or much of anything with my miter saw except picture frames. I also have to use a crutch to walk, so any tool I can carry with one hand is attractive to me. I do most of my cutting outside, so this “little” miter saw, that can be easily carried with one hand, is great! I sold my 10” miter saw because it was so hard for me to carry that I just got tired of using it. This Craftsman only weighs about 16 pounds and has a carrying handle unde...
