ABCs of Hand Tools

04-21-2013 02:54 PM by Stephenw | 6 comments »

This is not primarily a woodworking book. This book was published in 1945 by GM and shows the proper use of most common hand tools. The book is illustrated with a Disney character called “Primitive Pete”. This caveman shows improper tool uses that result in damage or accidents. This fun book can be found used on eBay or Amazon. I have a link to download a free electronic copy of the book from the GM Heritage Center on my website here… ABCs of Hand Tools

Be safer, retrofil this switch on your older equipment

I had a serious problem a short while ago with a jointer I just bought, starting unexpectedly, creating serious damages but more importantly it could have cost me my life or at least some very serious injury.You can read the story here:http://lumberjocks.com/topics/40359#reply-477310 Until yesterday morning when helping some one else with this switch, I used only the paddle of the switch that I installed on the existing equipment in my shop.Yesterday I understood how to correctly wire this...

Be Square and Use This!

Be Square and Use This!

02-25-2015 05:51 PM by gleasoncraftworks | 6 comments »

Hello all! As a new woodworker, I’m currently tooling up my shop with the happy anticipation of making “great things”. My mantra when shopping has always been to look for the best “bang for my buck”, and I’m pretty satisfied with the results so far. My latest find: the Empire Level e2992 True Blue 7” Rafter Square, a.k.a. a “Speed Square”. Made in the USA from aircraft-grade aluminum, this rafter square has stamped gradation marks, ...

Review of Pennstate Industries PSI Collet Chucking System..... Item LCDOWEL

Review of Pennstate Industries PSI Collet Chucking System..... Item LCDOWEL

12-09-2016 10:02 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

I finally ordered one of these collet systems from PSI because it has more range than the collets I how have and they can be used in the wood lathe or the metal lathe .All the collets came wrapped in plastic bags and oiled and the whole set is in a red plastic box. The collet holder is threaded for 1”-8 and it has a 3/4- 16 adapter for use on a mini lathe too.I thought the best way to evaluate them was to use an indicator and check for run out with a ground pin of the nominal sizes of t...

Mostly does what they claim

Mostly does what they claim

04-09-2012 05:24 PM by Derek Lyons | 6 comments »

I picked up one of these over the weekend, and am pretty much pleased with it. The current price ($3.99) is introductory, so grab ‘em while they’re cheap. Pros: Currently dirt cheap for what they do. They pretty much do what they’re advertised to do. So-so While waiting for it to dry, it does drip. Easily solved with a bit of scrap or blue tape to catch the drips, but forewarned is forearmed. Cleanup is not quite as easy as advertised. After the glue dried...

Hard to imagine a better formula for learning woodworking

Hard to imagine a better formula for learning woodworking

02-22-2016 01:32 PM by cutndried | 9 comments »

I have been puttering away at woodworking for several years on my own, but wanted to get a better grounding in the craft and accelerate the curve of my learning. My preferred method of learning is intensive immersion in the subject, so the 12 week intensive furniture-making course at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine was appealing. All my hopes were met by the course. It was expensive, at $7450, but that is on a par with similar duration training at other top loca...

Popular Woodworking The New Traditional Woodworker by Jim Tolpin

Popular Woodworking The New Traditional Woodworker by Jim Tolpin

05-07-2011 04:21 AM by WayneC | 9 comments »

I recieved this book in the mail after pre-ordering on Amazon.com. It is all I hoped it would be. The book is well written and full of great photography. It covers the workshop, workbenches, hand tools, and runs you through a set of projects to make shop aids while demonstrating techniques for use of a very wide range of hand tools. I’m sure I will make a number of the projects in the book before it is all said and done. The book was released on May 4th and you can find it at ...

Wonderful Jig

Wonderful Jig

05-08-2015 01:25 AM by EdsCustomWoodCrafts | 12 comments »

My first experience with Kreg was when I purchased the small R3 jig and I have to say I enjoyed it and it worked simply and efficiently so I decided to upgrade my model and purchased the K4…. It was a bigger cost jump and to be honest I think it’s over priced BUT after building a cedar deck cooler with it ….. It was worth every penny. I built a version of the Kreg storage box that they have plans to on there website and secured the jig to it and it works a treat…. ...

Review help needed !

Review help needed !

05-16-2015 07:51 PM by usmcshooter | 11 comments »

We are interested in demonstrating, and letting folks use a new mortise and dowel hole jig, for response and interest to help with how well it will be received in the market place, within 300 miles of Austin / San Antonio TX, or more if necessary ?? Anyone interested ? There are no wood shows to go to, to demonstrate this jig, so we are looking for individuals, a wood working club, or group of woodworkers to demonstrate it to, and let them use, for feed back. No cost or obligation. If you ...
