Great Little Clamp, Still Made in Germany

Great Little Clamp, Still Made in Germany

594 days ago 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...

Much better than a utility knife.

Much better than a utility knife.

389 days ago by NiteWalker | 8 comments »

I’ve had this for a while, but it hasn’t really gotten a workout until the past few days.I’m redoing my router table top and since my table saw is a bosch 4100 now, safely cutting a 4’x8’ sheet of laminate into manageable pieces isn’t feasible. Cutting the laminate with this tool is easy; I just made the necessary tick marks on the laminate sheet, laid a 4’ scrap of apple ply and ran the scoring tool along the apply ply with firm pressure several t...

Milescraft blade changer

Milescraft blade changer

1653 days ago by kosta | 5 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a review of the milescraft blade changer. I have had this blade changer for about 2 weeks and it works pretty good. The way it works is you put it next to the blade and you raise the blade. It has to be lined up straight with the blade. Then you keep raising the blade until the changer lifts off the table that means that its locked in. Then you take the blade off. I have always had problems using a second wrench on the left side of the blade so this is muc...

So far, so good = Scary Sharp Chisels

So far, so good = Scary Sharp Chisels

202 days ago by kajunkraft | 13 comments »

Like many woodworkers I know, sharpening chisels is a hit-or-miss proposition, or you buy an expensive “system”. The Worksharp 3000 is about $200, which from what I have seen is a not too costly option. I am very much more a power tool woodworker than a hand tool woodworker. I rarely use chiselsso have not been too concerned about them. Recently have needed them and was really disappointed with the results and decided it was time to get them set up right. Although I’...

Accidental Work Bench

Accidental Work Bench

15 days ago by whope | 6 comments »

I had bought this kitchen cart when living in Brussels. It wasn’t needed here in the US so it ended up, like so many other un-wanted things, in my shop. I have a very small shop and I pine for the day I have a shop large enough to fit a decent sized work bench. For now, I have found this kitchen table (39L x 17W x 35H) to exactly what this shop needed. It’s the right height to work as an out-feed table. It has two slide-through drawers where I store my owner’s manuals....

A "cliff's notes" for hand and power tool maintenance

A "cliff's notes" for hand and power tool maintenance

1094 days ago by Tedstor | 5 comments »

Out of impulse, I bought this FWW magazine. Its not actually one of their usually monthly editions, but an extra volume which gives a nice overview on maintaining and improving all sorts of hand and power tools. A few examples from the table of contents include (very non-exhaustive): - Tool Kit for Tune-Ups Explaining the tools needed for measuring table saw run-out, jointer blade height, etc. And explains how to use them effectively. Anyone that doesn’t know how to do this should ru...

Very nice oil/wax finish - Simple application

Very nice oil/wax finish - Simple application

958 days ago by Jack_Isidore | 1 comment »

In the past, I’ve used Gary Week's danish oil finishing schedule, which was recommended to me from a woodworking instructor. I really like the results, particularly using Deft brand danish oil. However, working on prototype wood iphone back panels (LB project, s main purpose, finishing hardwood floors, the price could really be a deal-breaker.

KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop

KOMELON Tape for the WorkShop

1051 days ago by Pie | 4 comments »

On my usual Thursday night grocery shopping at WalMart, I was looking through the tool aisle (never know what I may find) I (Ok my girlfriend did( saw this hanging by the tape measures> Hmmm for around $4 bucks I thought I would give it a try because my workbench needed a built in measuring tape. It took me 2 tries to get it on correctly. I was certain it would not stick after re taping 2x but it did. I had to cut it with a dremel since it is a metal backed tape. Definitely, worth it, just no...

Rust Preventive

Rust Preventive

193 days ago by OSU55 | 1 comment »

In my research for rust preventives for tools and firearms I came across a product called Alox, originally developed many years ago for naval ship applications. It is widely used in commercial/industrial applications but is not readily available to the consumer except as this product, Liquid Alox by Lee Precision, manufacturer of reloading equipment. Lee sells this for a lubricating coating for cast lead bullets, but it is the same calcium soap based alox used as a rust preventive. It is avai...
