It works great and won't bug anyone upstairs

01-22-2014 08:54 AM by nerdkraft | 9 comments »

TL;DR – would recommend. Quiet but not silent. Works for driving 18GA brads and blowing off parts of the shop. Great value. I live in San Francisco in an 1897 built victorian. While I’m fortunate enough to have some shop space what is officially a ‘storage’ area, the building has little insulation and all the bones are huge timbers that transmit sound and vibration like crazy. As such, my first (mis)adventure in getting a PC pancake compressor quickly led to complai...

Best I've used

Best I've used

09-30-2011 03:23 AM by JayPique | 5 comments »

I just saw this review, and I completely agree – it’s the best I’ve used. It smells like Band-aids I think. The only thing you need to watch is that if you spread it with a steel putty knife it will start to turn black if you work it too long, so I use plastic, or stainless steel to spread it. It comes it a nice wide range of colors too, and if it gets dry you just add a drop or three of water and mix it up again. Great stuff.JP

Feature Loaded Tape Measure

Feature Loaded Tape Measure

09-22-2012 10:16 PM by CueballRosendaul | 11 comments »

When I die, everyone will say, “How many tape measures and flashlights does one guy need?!” Well, I’m sorry, but I carry these two items with me all day working and usually into the evening if I’m in the shop, so I’m always on the lookout. About two years ago I was in Johnson’s Workbench picking up some lumber and thinking about this huge trim project I was about to embark on while remodeling my house. Since we were already living here, the chop saw needed ...

Great Little Clamp, Still Made in Germany

Great Little Clamp, Still Made in Germany

12-12-2012 06:45 PM by NiteWalker | 8 comments »

For a long while, I was using the small black and orange spring clamps for holding corner blocks in place, but since these blocks are somewhat load bearing in the application I use them for, I wanted something that would give me better clamping pressure without being too big or cumbersome. These clamps fit the bill perfectly. They’re small, lightweight, have excellent build quality, have good clamping force and they weren’t too expensive. I got them from mcfeely’s, who ha...

Wood River # 6

Wood River # 6

05-08-2010 03:27 AM by jerryo | 7 comments »

I used this plane for the first time today and I was very impressed. It is a big step up from the other planes I have been using. It has good heft to it and all of the parts were machined nice and didn’t requiure any filing.The sole was dead flat and the iron was thick and the back flat. I spent 5 minutes honing the iron to an 8000 grit water stone and took fine shavings in maple, walnut and cherry. I have never used a Lie-neilsen, Clifton orVeritas but with the way this performed IR...

Yet another time wasted disappointment.

Yet another time wasted disappointment.

Here we go again. This 6 inch capacity SO CALLED self-centering jig from TASK-USA or Telco tools is another example of lousy workmanship.Another so called made in the USA centering jig that’s off by unacceptable tolerances.If I wanted this kind of inaccuracy, I would use the drill press witout my glasses.They claim their jig is within 10000 –5000 tolerance, I guess they need to get back to school or learn to use a calculator. 10000 is = 0.0001 and 5000 = 0.0002.My measurement shows 1/100 =0...

height adjustment

height adjustment

10-27-2014 03:08 PM by Scrollers | 1 comment »

I have owned this saw for almost two years. I am going to retire in a little over a year and I have been setting up my workshop with tools that I feel I will need at that time. I haven’t been able to work down there very much but have done some work there. My question is the height adjustment. It won’t go down. It is in the up position now but won’t move. It has been this way ever since I have had it but didn’t do any thing with because I didn’t have the time. No...

Exceptional how to turn DVD set

Exceptional how to turn DVD set

12-17-2014 02:52 AM by Dedvw | 3 comments »

I have been using my lathe for about 5 years now. I am no pro at turning, and basically picked up techniques along the way from people at the woodworking stores and turning clubs. Lots of times, I never really felt like the people showing were covering the fundamentals or even knew exactly what they were talking about. Either because they were better at turning and not at teaching I don’t know. I will say that I learned more on the first DVD of this series, than I ever did at a turning ...

Dewalt 713 miter saw

Dewalt 713 miter saw

06-21-2013 04:37 AM by UncleSnail | 1 comment »

dead nut perfect miters right out of the box. It is shipped with a 40 tooth, thin kerf combination blade. This blade did a better job than my freshly sharped 80 tooth. So I put the Dewalt blade back on. This saw is moderately priced and is very much so worth the bucks. Uncle Snail I realize the picture of the coffee table I built has absolutely nothing to do with the saw review but how interesting can a saw pic be?

This review is for the Aqua Coat clear grain filler. http://aquacoat.com/products/clear-grain-filler They also make a clear wood putty/filler I haven’t tried. Right now this stuff is $17.95 for a pint. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this stuff. I’m on my second can now. I’ve used it on several tables made from oak and walnut. After getting crud embedded in the grain after finishing one too many times I finally started using a grain filler. I picked t...
