Thomas J MacDonalds 2nd Video, Shaker Inspired Step Stool

Thomas J MacDonalds 2nd Video, Shaker Inspired Step Stool

02-25-2010 11:47 PM by Karson | 10 comments »

Thomas MacDonald has created his second Video. It’s available on his web site for $40.00 (Price change $30.00) and a package deal with DVD #1. This stool is Shaker inspired and it’s presented in the typically Tommy style. He’s recording this in real time and because he’s working with wood, there are no do-overs. He’s showing you how to hand cut dovetails and he tells you not to make a mistake and then he does it and says that’s not what you are suppose t...

Good Price! Get what you pay for!

Good Price! Get what you pay for!

08-26-2008 04:18 AM by Tooldads_apprentice | 12 comments »

I bought a starter kit, at my local Home Depot, about a year ago and it is great. The package I bought included A Cordless Drill, A Impact Drill, A Circular Saw, A Radio, A Vacuum, A Reciprocating Saw, and A Sander. I have had only a few problems with it, but for my first set of tools, it is a great set. Problems that I have had include the chuck sticking on the Impact Drill. I wish this kit came with another battery and charger, but I went and bought the extra two batteries and charger. I wo...

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Roger’s work – I would like to suggest that you take a brief minute and look at his projects. http://lumberjocks.com/RogerBean/projects . He has recently published a truly outstanding E-book entitled “Walnut Burl Fountain Pen Box” available for download at Andrew Crawford’s site http://www.smartboxmaker.com/ at about $16.35 with the exchange rate. The book takes you through the development process for this wonderful little box from the beginnin...

Little green screwdriving man

Little green screwdriving man

02-05-2011 12:40 AM by Vrtigo1 | 3 comments »

I bought this to replace my 18v DeWalt hammer drill as my go-to screwdriver. I got the hex chuck version – it’s nice to be able to slip bits in and not have to deal with tightening the chuck. You can also get drill bits and countersinks in hex shank, so if you need to use it for those functions as well, you can. My primary objective with this purchase was to get something lighter, and therefore easier to get into tight spots and to reduce the strain on my arm when doing a lot...

Oshlun HI-ATB Ultimate General Purpose

Oshlun HI-ATB Ultimate General Purpose

04-01-2015 02:17 AM by eljiggo | 4 comments »

Hello Everyone! After reading a review(a very old review at that) knottscott made on the Oshlun General Purpose 40t, I inquired about the Oshlun ULTIMATE general purpose, a hi-atb general purpose. Noone seemed to know anything, so amazon was nice enough to deliver one to me for $34.30. First Impressions: The blade has that aesthestic ferocity to it that only a 40t hi-atb blade can present. It was very sharp out of the box. Close inspection of the blade shows large carbide teeth (not qui...

Flatten your stones frequently

Flatten your stones frequently

01-02-2010 07:02 AM by gizmodyne | 6 comments »

We bought this three months ago on sale at Woodcraft. They go for $32 U.S. Purpose: A flat reference surface to lap your water stones upon. Water stones sharpen quickly but wear quickly too. Therefore they need to flattened frequently, especially if you are sharpening a thick iron. At 2” the surface plate is thick enough to avoid deflecting under pressure. To use: Soak wet-dry sandpaper (I like 100 grit), press it down. Lap away. You can also sharpen tools directly on the sandpape...

Great Video Well Worth the Price

Great Video Well Worth the Price

02-17-2013 03:30 PM by PittsburghTim | 6 comments »

I have purchased several woodworking videos in the past and have been generally pleased, but this one was very helpful. I knew a number of the things from reading other sources, but see it first hand takes some of the remaining mystery out of it for me. I like Chris’ sense of humor and value his opinion on tools and such. This video is great for someone who does not have much experience with tuning up a plane an nobody around to teach them. He takes you from the purchase of a used...

What a difference good Air Couplers make

What a difference good Air Couplers make

10-01-2014 01:57 AM by BigDaddyO | 10 comments »

I just finished replacing all of the Air disconnects in my shop after getting fed up with most of them leaking. I am VERY impressed with these as they use ball bearings to hold the couplers in place so there is no leakage even when moving the hose around. My limited review of the Milton vs the Harbor Freight, Home Depot, and the ones that came on my Air Compressor. http://youtu.be/uISnierCQH4

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

Not solely a woodworking tool but none the less.

03-03-2009 07:16 AM by TraumaJacques | 0 comments »

I don’t know about you but I use screwdrivers allot around the shop. The problem is that there are so many different type and size of screws that I need several on hand at all time. They inevitably fall on the floor roll under the bench or simply disappear or blend in the mess on the bench top. Over the years I have bought several “multi “screwdrivers and they pretty much all were garbage. Now this one I must say is the “best screwdriver I have ever owned and will never buy an...
