Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

82 days ago by Billy E | 1 comment »

This review is for the 10-inch, 48-tooth, ultra thin kerf (5/64”) version of the TS2000 blade. I have used a number of different blades including cross cutting blades up to 96 tooth and ripping blades down to 24 tooth. Most are freud, some are dewalt,one delta, etc… This is my first Ridge Carbide blade. I got the 5/64” version because I am using a fairly underpowered Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I’ve always used thin kerf (3/32” or thereabout) with the sa...

Much better than a utility knife.

Much better than a utility knife.

411 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...

With the Grain: A Craftman's Guide to Understanding Wood

With the Grain: A Craftman's Guide to Understanding Wood

218 days ago by dan81 | 4 comments »

Hi LJ’s, First off, I have no formal training in woodworking. Everything I’ve learned to date has been by either reading a book, a website, watching a YouTube video or trying something “logical” in the shop to see if it works. Well, I recently received a book for Christmas that I’d requested Santa bring me. It is by Christian Becksvoort, a name we are all familiar with I suspect. This book covers subjects like land management and lumber harvesting / dryi...

Rockler Shelf Pin Drilling Jig (Review)

Rockler Shelf Pin Drilling Jig (Review)

198 days ago by Brett | 9 comments »

Have you ever noticed holes , neatly in a row, on the inside of many book cases and cabinets? Have you ever wondered how they might have gotten them so straight, and evenly spaced? Maybe you have, maybe you haven’t. I never really gave it much thought until I decided that I may want to attempt to build something that needed some adjustable shelving. This jig is one way that a do-it-yourselfer may be able to add those adjustable shelves to your project! It is a shelf pin drillin...

Customer Service

Customer Service

I always liked wood magazine and the layout, projects, and articles. I just bought the new special interest “outdoor projects” copy with a garden bench on the front. Long story short the bench was not in there…. Disappointed I emailed their editor and got a response in about 15 min with an apology for the mistake and a free download of the plans for the bench. Great customer service and I think it made my decision to subscribe.FMG

So far, so good = Scary Sharp Chisels

So far, so good = Scary Sharp Chisels

225 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’...

Right on the Mark

Right on the Mark

As some of you know I make a lot of peg games and one of the things I hate the most about making them is having to clean up the drill holes. Well I have found the solution to that problem. MicroMark Double Land Brad Point Drill Bit. I found these in a catalog for model building that my grandfather had given me and they claimed to make the a clean cut hole in all woods. My games are mainly made with standard pine and I was a bit skeptical but at around $19 for a set (see pic 1) I figured it...

skil 6 in grinder

skil 6 in grinder

1953 days ago by kosta | 2 comments »

This grinder is a good grinder to start off with but you need to replace the crappy gray wheels that come with the grinder you should get the white ones with dont wear off as much but other than that it is a nice grinder. A good add on is to build bigger platforms or tools rests because the ones that come with this are not very big for a no. 7 jointer plane blade. This grinder costs about $50.00 and their are things to upgrade but nobody buys a a $2000 cabinet saw and doesnt upgrade the fenc...

warning just got this today, this is a first look review The Woodsmith Store had this General mobile base on sale for $60, the staff also recommended it. It took me about 15-20 mins to put together, all I needed was a couple wrenches. It’s my first mobile base and I can’t believe I lived without one. Much better than dragging around my Delta contractor table saw. I would have preferred one lever to engage the wheels and move it but stepping on 2 each time isn’t too to...
